Buyers

You are invited to contact me now to schedule a very informative "Buyer Introduction Session", with no obligation.  We'll review the process of how to identify the best properties for your consideration after discussing your "wish list", goals and expectations.

First-time buyers and future residents will benefit from a complete understanding of the process of purchasing a property in our local market.  When you understand the process, all the major factors involved, and establish a time frame for making a property purchase; this will help you make correct decisions comfortably at the right time.

Experienced investors and home owners will benefit from learning how to identify market trends specifically related to your areas of interest, type of property and price range.  Discover the advantage of considering "off the market properties", which were previously for sale on the multiple listing service (MLS) before the listing "expired" or was "terminated".

By properly addressing all your concerns and questions, getting to know each other during the session, we will then be in a position to move forward confidently as a team when the time is right for you, committed to your success in purchasing the ideal property that meets all your requirements, hopefully exceeds your expectations, but most importantly represents excellent value in the current market.
