It takes more than a trained real estate agent to understand the needs and concerns of buyer clients. It takes a team who has been there, someone who has the same concerns when they’re home shopping. There's plenty to do. Check out my home buyer services below.
I help my buyers understand the many fields of information in an MLS, Multiple Listing Service search. I guide them in making the most of searches in an MLS with thousands of listings.
Once I have an idea of your criteria for a home selection, I can set up automated search alert emails to keep you informed of new listings and price reductions of qualified properties.
As tough as it is these days to get a mortgage, I know the best sources in the market and will help you to contact mortgage professionals who have been very helpful to my past clients.
Buyers shouldn’t walk into a deal unarmed. I arm you with market data to help you to understand the buyer and seller sides and formulate an offer price negotiation strategy.

The myriad of tasks, documents and delivery deadlines involved in a real estate transaction are all coordinated by me and our closing assistance staff. I am here to help.
