Putting You First

 

Finding You The Right Home

I'm in the business of matching Buyers to homes.

It's what I do, and I do it well.

Here's how I work.

 

 

Empower YOU! 

My approach is to empower buyers to make confident decisions and to feel secure throughout the whole buying process. I recognize that buying is indeed a process and not merely a transaction.

 

Listen & Understand. 

The first step in the process is for me to understand your needs, wants & desires and also your level of real estate experience.  I like to understand how my clients live, or want to live, how they process information and what they most value in a home.  I need to walk a mile in your shoes

 

Put you first.  

The buying experience is different for everyone; some only need to see a few homes before making a decision while others need to see dozens of home all over the city.  I vie my clients all the same attention and view the process as an adventure.  It needs to have an element of fun and exploration.

 


The Buying Process

We meet. 

I'll meet with you in person to help us understand what you’re looking for, where you’re looking, and how much you’re looking to spend.Then I'll get to work finding it for you.

 

e-mail listings that match your criteria. 

Before they even hit the market, I e-mail you new listings from the MLS® system matching your requirements.

 

take you on property tours. 

Find a property you would like to visit? No problem. I'll take you to see it. 

 

research. 

Ready to make an offer? We search past sales of similar properties to ensure you don’t overpay on your new home. 

 

negotiate, in YOUR best interest. 

I will negotiate tirelessly to get you the best deal possible. And I'll make sure your home is inspected by a top-notch inspector so you don't buy a lemon. 

 

manage closing. 

I’ll manage all aspects of the closing, from paperwork, to financing, to lawyer coordination; I can manage it all.

 


 

First Time Home Buyers 

Just like anything you do for the first time buying a home has its trials and tribulations.  You want someone on your side who understands this and is willing to slow things down a little. Explain things in a bit more detail.  Exlpore more options before making a decision.  And HELP YOU ENJOY THE EXCITEMENT OF BUYING YOUR FIRST HOME

*  many first time home buyers unknowlingly thing they can only purchase a home from the REALTOR® who's sign is on the front yard. NOT SO! I can show & help you buy any home that is being sold - no matter who who or which real estate office is selling the home.

 


Getting Your Ducks In A Row

A couple items you should take care of before we head out on our first property tour are:

Mortgage Pre-Approval

  • You know how much you can borrow, so you don't waste time looking at properties you can't afford.
  • You don't have to worry about rising interest rates while shopping for a home, as usually the mortgage broker will guarantee the current interest rate for 60-90 days.
  • You have an edge when you make an offer, because the seller knows you're more likely to get a loan.
  • You save time when you apply for your loan because you've already assembled your paperwork

 

Choose Your Neighbourhoods

 

When you buy a home you are also buying into the neighbourhood. Make sure it suits your lifestyle...

That’s why it’s important to identify the wants and needs you have of your home and the location before making the commitment to home ownership.

From crime rates to area amenities, there are many things that need to be considered. So begin by determining what’s most important to you as a home owner in the long term.
