If you’re new to the home buying process, just starting to think about it, or haven’t done it in awhile, here’s help. Though there are many variables that exist within each transaction, these basic steps are the same. My job is to make sure it runs smoothly, from our first consultation to beyond the closing.  Just like every home is unique, so is every home buyer. Knowing how much house you can afford is an important first step and getting pre-approved is critical.  ( I work with some stellar lenders, I’d be happy to introduce you).  Having an idea of the numbers makes your home shopping more efficient, and you’ll be ready to write an offer quickly. That’s a must in this competitive market.

There is no such thing as “the perfect house”. Finding one you can fall in love with takes market savvy, intuition and teamwork. I love the first meeting with buyers when they tell me what they want in a home and I follow up with questions about things they hadn’t though of. And I love the moment when we find the home and the whole energy changes. So cool.

Any questions? Want to talk? Is now a good time?  I’d love to hear what moves you and help you have a stress-free home buying experience you will enjoy.
