Services I will provide as the buyer's agent
If you are a potential buyer in this ever changing real estate climate, you may feel a bit confused. Understandable, yet there is much that can be learned from looking at real estate as a historical investment. The statistics and trends in any market indicate without much margin for error what is yet to come. And that is why the expertise of a seasoned agent is invaluable. Your buyer broker has an obligation to educate you on the market and an obligation to protect you against unnecessary pitfalls. Ultimately a commitment to your real estate success is the factor that differentiates one agent / broker from another. You will need to rely on a Realtor who is there to help you with your concerns, your math, and your personal perception of value. As your buyer- broker, I'm all about you making your best educated move forward.
Let me demonstrate. I can help identify where we are in the current cycle, where you are, in relation to buying now or later, sometimes, where you need to be vs. where you want to be, and what "affordable" is specific to you.
Then comes "the hunt". Continually I familiarize myself with the homes on the market. Usually after one single consultation with a buyer, I get a snapshot of what their personal goals look like. My job is match-making. I find the home from among many homes that are marketed today that will ultimately be the perfect choice for you and your family.
I respect the fact that you too will be working hard to make it all happen, therefore I keep a flexible schedule in order to accommodate yours, so showings at your convenience are entirely possible. Because buying a home is a huge decision for most people, I try to take as much of the uneasiness and the stress out of the process as possible The whole process can be exciting and rewarding, and it should! I will go the extra mile to insure you are informed about each detail of the house and the transaction. You won't have to self- interpret the fine print in the contract, or worry about the dead lines for contingency removals. I have come to recognize and rely on the expertise of other professionals who will become part of your real estate settlement and closing process; local lenders, home inspectors, title companies who are all teaming, sharp and resourceful, who appreciate your business and work to your greatest satisfaction, seamlessly packaging your real estate closing accurately and on time. I can even arrange for help with your move.
I am always willing to share my thoughts about maximizing floor plans, ideas for practical remodels, opinions about color. (take 'em or leave 'em... 'm not attached! )
I get your vision of what you want your home and your lifestyle to feel like. Because,in real estate, in reality, it's all about you! And that is what works for me.
