I’m here every step of the way. – Initial Consultation – Property Search – Bargaining and Negotiation – Making your Purchase – Planning your Move.
Did you know?It’s important that you sign a Buyer Representation Agreement that commits you to your Broker and your Broker to you. This agreement is now law and must be in place before a property can be purchased.
Getting started on the process can be exciting. This is where we discuss all the items you would like to have. During our initial meeting we will discuss and use this information to create your new home “Wish List” that includes items such as:
– Determine space, location, and price requirements.
