Searching for the right house

Here are a few things to expect during your transaction.
There are a lot of moving parts in the home buying process, so having a good Realtor to guide you will make a huge impact on your experience. I like to sit down with my new clients, especially first-time home buyers, to go through an overview of the process. In my experience, it makes the whole process go smoother if we all have an expectation of what's to come. I will listen for what you are looking for and work together with you to find the perfect place. We will figure out the best way to communicate and make it happen. I will provide advise throughout the process and have trusted professionals that I can recommend for needs that come up, like a loan officer, a title company, various inspectors and almost anything else.
