Buyers naturally feel more at ease and more drawn to properties when the seller is not there. Leave negotiations and communication to your me.
In a nutshell, our belief system for working with you in the home-buying process is simple:
- Communicate openly
- Fight for your best interests
I am a huge advocate of the two-part buyer’s consultation, a 1 - 1.5 hour face-to-face meeting upfront. Buying property is possibly the biggest purchase of your life, and therefore, is understandably intimidating. When I walk through the whole process with you step-by-step, we familiarize you with this once-unknown territory, which automatically makes purchasing a home comfortable.
My goal is that there are no surprises.
Then, Part 2 of our buyer’s consultation involves a visualization exercise, in which you dream with me, explaining in detail what you want in a home and why a backyard and formal dining room are important to you, for example. We dig down to the nitty-gritty. Every buyer has a different lifestyle, which comes with different needs for a home. For example, a bachelor’s home will be vastly different from the home for a family of five. This is why we invest this time in the consultation up-front--to hone in on what is right for you in order to save you significant time and money in the long run. Trust me--it's worth it!
