Buyer Information

Buying a home is an exciting time in one's life. Making the smart move of choosing a REALTOR®, and not just any Real Estate Sales person or Broker, is your first step to ensuring that your new home and community meets YOUR needs. As a REALTOR® I adhere to a code of ethics and service standards to work in my client's best interest. Check out my client testimonials
Also I am only a phone call away. If you have a question, just ask.
My services range from selecting properties according to your "wishlist" to putting you in contact with trustworthy financial advisers to helping you find the home that best suits you and your family. I can also hook you up with inspectors, insurance companies and other services you may need (later); handymen, painters, tree experts, landscapers, fence builders and concrete workers to name a few. Just so you know, I am not receiving any referral fees or "kick backs" from these professionals. For your convenience, I can also send you listings per e-mail, as long as you tell me what it is that you are looking for. Information on property for sale you receive from me generally originates from the NWMLS (Northwest Multiple Listing Service). Of course you are welcome to do your own search, and one of the great ways to do this is via this website. Search for Homes 
I pride myself on repeat business and hope you'll come to understand why.

How I Can Help 
Before you start looking
Closing Costs


 As Your Agent, I Will:

  • Assure that you see all the properties in the area that meet your criteria.
  • Guide you through the entire home buying process, from finding homes to look at, to getting the best financing, inspection, other conditions to know about or read through before purchase.
  • Make sure you don't pay too much for your new home and help you avoid costly mistakes.
  • Answer all of your questions about the local market area, including schools, neighborhoods, the local economy, and more.
  • Accompany you to the closing table at escrow - if possible. 
Before You Start Looking for Your New Home: 
  • Check your credit rating. Straighten out any errors before its too late. If you need help with this talk to a lender or mortgage broker, it is part of their job.
  • Determine a comfortable monthly budget for your new purchase, including down payment and monthly payment. If you buy a condo, think about monthly Home Owners Dues (HOD).
  • Find a loan program that meets your needs and get pre-qualified (preferably pre-approved).
    Choose a REALTOR® that you trust and who understands your needs.
  • Determine what neighborhood best matches your needs.
    Identify important features you need your new home to have.

  • Lender fees include charges for loan processing, underwriting, preparation and establishing an escrow account.
  • Third-party fees include charges for insurance, title search, and other inspections such as termites.
