Buyer Services

Initial meeting

Let’s sit down together to discuss your specific requirements. With more than twenty years of experience, I will be able to answer your questions in a meaningful way. You will not feel pressured to work with me. Rather, I encourage you to interview as many other agents as you feel is necessary to find the “Right Fit."

The inventory

Some properties are in the MLS, while some of them will never hit the MLS. As a member of Top Agent Network, and because of my excellent relationships with all the other agents in town, I am able to get my clients information about all the homes that might work for you.

Know the pitfalls

Because I have been representing buyers for more than twenty years, I know what is important to look for in a home, and what pitfalls to avoid. The devil is in the details, and it's very important to study the disclosures carefully so that there will be no unpleasant surprises later on.

Value

I am known for careful, research-driven analysis into recent sales and current competition, which demonstrate the true value of the home you want to buy. With advance preparation, I take the fear and guesswork out of buying a home.

Offer strategy

I will assess what sort of competition we are facing and help you formulate a sensible offer strategy. I will help you craft a competitive offer that will get the seller's attention while also including all appropriate contingencies.

It's all about the relationship

I am known as the agent that other agents love to work with -- professional, reliable, courteous and detail-oriented. It is my solid relationships with other agents that will get you the home you deserve.

Negotiate, negotiate

It takes experience to know when to push and when to step back. With a background in psychology, I am particularly skilled at reading the hidden motivation of the other parties in the transaction. I cut through the hype and manipulation that often so accompanies real estate sales.

Not quite done yet

Once an offer is accepted, there are the triple hurdles of inspections, escrow and appraisal. Sometimes, new information can be used to negotiate a better deal. Every transaction is unique and I will get you to the finish line with the best possible price and terms.

Congratulations

Since we did our homework going in, and insisted upon accurate disclosures from the seller, you will have completed a transaction that you can feel great about for many years to come. Now it’s time to celebrate your purchase!
