Buying A Home?

REAL ESTATE CONSULTING BEYOND THE INDUSTRY STANDARD

In recent years, real estate’s collective concept of service has dramatically changed.  Now it is based more on “how fast” rather than “how well.”  Too many realtors rely on technology to automatically find houses and then email them to clients. This is a disservice to the client.

In today’s difficult marketplace, buyers need an intelligent, informative approach to their home search, which is only the first phase of a complex, multi-faceted transaction.

I am dedicated to:

  • Making my clients as knowledgeable as I am.
  • Keeping my clients informed.
  • Advocating on behalf my clients best interests.
  • Minimizing my clients’ stress and help navigate the process from the beginning to the close of escrow, and beyond.

Collaboration Is Fundamental

A home is more than an investment or a place to live. Your dream home will be where you relax, spend an afternoon savoring a good book, or an evening sharing a great bottle of wine. It’s a refuge where you recharge, and a place to raise your children and create family memories.

Buying a home is very personal and I respect your confidence. Through collaboration with my clients, I have succeeded at finding and closing on the right property, at the right price and for the right terms.

Homework Is The First Key

Before we ever view a property, I need to know who you are, what matters to you, how you live. We will sit down and talk about your lifestyle, your dreams, as well as the features you desire.

Next, I will put you in touch with one of the top mortgage professionals in the Bay Area to develop a financing strategy. This information, combined with our conversation, ensures making an informed, knowledgeable search for properties.

Customized Home Search

Because I’m active in today’s market, I have a vast network of listings of available homes. I use my expertise in my search, and I review and screen all properties ahead of time. I can have new listings automatically emailed to you.
As we view properties, I encourage clients to become experts themselves. I provide market research and analysis that help you develop an understanding of market and price trends. The more informed you become, the better the process will be. In the end, however, it’s up to you.

Negotiation Preparation Is The Second Key

Finding your dream home is only a step is the process. Before writing the first offer, I will review comparable sales and market trends with you. I will also create and review strategies and alternatives throughout negotiations, assuring you are comfortable with the offer and every counter offer.

Resources Are The Final Key For Escrow And Beyond

I have a team of experts who can handle everything from hanging paintings to tax issues to help you close and move into your dream home.

When Average Won’t Do
