Buyers

Buyer's Interview
I will help you define your property wants, needs and desires.  This includes location, size, amenities and condition.

Exposure to Inventory
I will provide you with reports of all available properties and add daily updates.   You will also be directed to "Pocket Listings" (those properties available for sale but not formally on the market).

Property Showings
I preview available properties so that your valuable time is spent viewing only those that meet your needs.  Tours are carefully arranged to be time efficient and comfortable.

Choices
Once the list of properties has been narrowed down to those that are of interest to you, I will give experienced advice on the pros and cons of each property.  You will be advised of market trends that may influence your decision.

Negotiation
My guidance in preparing your purchase offer will help insure that the price and terms reflect your needs.  Whenever possible I insist on presenting offers in person.   Personal contact with the seller strengthens your offer and any important nuances of your offer are communicated at the outset.

Financing
If needed, I will introduce you to lenders with a proven reputation and provide information about available loan programs.  Today's mortgage market is very competitive and a host of programs are available.  I will assist you in finding once customized to your needs.

Escrow
Our staff transaction coordinator's watchful eyes will assure a smooth and easy purchase with personal attention to all details including inspections, title work and government regulations.

Can you help us identify what you're looking for?

Please indicate your preference for receiving property information:
By E-mail    By Fax    By First Class Mail


Please provide contact details. If I can't reach you, I can't send information.

Keep up to date with this hot market. At your request, I can provide regular "Preferred Buyer" market updates -- emailed or faxed to you automatically.

Remember, only a local agent can tell you of homes for sale by owner that are not on the Internet and are not on the Multiple Listing Service.

Then there are the "pocket listings," known only to the agent and his contacts. And then there are those homes no longer actively on the market but whose owners are still interested in selling.

Above all, remember that it pays you to have your own agent doing the leg work for you in finding your home and then representing your interests exclusively in its purchase.
