Purchasing a home is typically one of the largest, most complicated and most emotional financial transactions of one’s life. Not only will you be finding a new home, but also making an important investment and creating a significant asset. There is a lot at stake and I am committed to guiding you expertly through the process and representing your best interests at every step. That is the fiduciary duty I owe to all of my clients and I take it very seriously.

Home buying can be a smooth and understandable process. Honest and straightforward counsel, professional expertise, in-depth market knowledge and an uncom­promising commitment to you constitute the foundation of my service.

First Steps

We will meet to review the home buying process. Together we will create a list of your 10 to 12 most important criteria for a new home. We will discuss your timeline, price range, needs, preferences, special circumstances and other purchase parameters for the property that will best suit you, your goals and your lifestyle.

We will go over how I can help you best, how we can work together most effectively, and the things that you will need to do to make the process successful. We will work on your timeline – I will never rush or push you.

I love what I do and my success is entirely dependent upon your satisfaction. I promise unparalleled service and the highest ethical standards.

Property Search

I will use my extensive network of colleagues to identify off-market opportunities in addition to knowing about all available listings through the Multiple Listing Service (MLS),

When you select a property to pursue I will share my expertise and knowledge with you, giving you data on market values, conditions and trends. Together we will craft a targeted, competitive offer to prevail in a competitive market.

Negotiate Your Offer

We will review the purchase contract carefully so you fully understand its specifications, contingencies and timelines, as well as customary practices, local laws and agency relationships.

I will, at your direction, prepare, present and aggressively negotiate the purchase offer on your behalf. I provide the information, options and strategies pertaining to the offer process so that you can make informed decisions. You remain the decision maker.

Once your offer is accepted I manage every aspect of the escrow, disclosure and due diligence processes:

  • Coordinate the physical inspections of the property by qualified professionals and then review the inspection reports with you in detail.
  • Review the Seller’s Transfer Disclosure Statement, title report and all other disclosures with you to ensure a clear understanding of their data and implications.
  • Coordinate the third party professional resources necessary to bring the transaction to a successful close: lender, appraiser, inspectors, contractors, escrow and title company.
  • I will help you review the final closing documents and accompany you for their signing.
Long-Term Relationship

Finally, I will follow-up after close of escrow to make sure you are settled comfortably into your new home and that there are no outstanding issues that need to be addressed.

I hope that your home search will be the start of a long-term relationship between us. I encourage you to call for referrals for contractors, plumbers, roofers, etc. You will hear from me frequently and I will prepare a comparative market analyses on an annual basis to help you track your home’s value.
