Congratulations Homebuyers!


Buying a home is a very exciting event! Whether you’re looking for your first home, your ‘move-up’ home, or you’ve decided to ‘downsize’, the home you purchase is one of your most important decisions. Having the right Realtor to guide you through the process can make all the difference. Rest assured that I am by your side from beginning to end and beyond, offering you the following:


*Expert consultation in evaluating homes, towns, communities, neighborhoods, amenities, values, resale considerations, and so much more


*Referrals to excellent financing and mortgage professionals to ensure you have access to the best possible products and programs for your particular needs


*Tailored searches that go beyond simply putting you on an ‘listing alert’ program; I personally preview every home to make sure it may truly be a ‘match’


*Personalized showings, including looking at what each home offers in its current condition as well as the vision of its potential


*Guidance in how to prepare and ‘package’ your offer once you’ve found the home you’d like; our preparation and presentation will make your offer stand out whether its the only one or one of several competing offers 


*Expert ‘win-win’ negotiation, ensuring that you’re getting the most you can for your investment


*Guidance in reviewing and accepting disclosures, inspections, and all ‘material facts’  pertaining to the home you’ve chosen


*Access to highly respected inspectors and other professionals who can aid you in determining condition and any ‘hot-button’ items for the home you’ve chosen


*Management of everyone and everything involved in the entire escrow process, making sure you’re aware of all events, timelines and important dates from before your offer is accepted to well after you take ownership


*Access to excellent professionals for any project you may want to take on to make your new home even better suited for your individual needs and aesthetics


*A level-headed, intelligent, patient, and calm approach (a sense of humor now and then never hurts either!) to the entire home purchasing process -- an approach that has been fine-tuned over my real estate career that spans 25 years

And of course, a passion for what I do that leads to a never-ending commitment to ensuring your success and complete satisfaction with my services and your home!


Simply contact me at your earliest convenience -- just click on my email address or call my cell phone -- and I'm ready to begin working on your behalf. We'll make a great team, and I look forward to helping you find a wonderful home to call your own!
