Finding the One

We will visit a number of homes together, continually reviewing your likes and dislikes as we eliminate and uncover just the right gem for you. I will research the comparable properties and determine current and fair market value.

Negotiation is Key

I will prepare a professional Agreement to purchase that is reflective of your decisions and protects your best interest. I will negotiate on your behalf and have a reputation of being respectful and extremely competent in this regard. My intent is to get you the best possible price with conditions that protect you.
