So you’re looking for a real estate agent. Chances are you’ve seen a few pages similar to this one laying out some pretty impressive qualifications and lists of reasons why you should buy your next house with that specific person. The truth is, any of these agents could get the job done. The only difference is whether or not you’ll genuinely enjoy the experience (and yes, it is possible).
I have clients that refer to me as part of the family — and not because I’ve moved into their basement right after they buy a home. It’s all about the sincere, trusting relationship we build together.
I like to think I’m a pretty easy person to get along with; after all, I’m a people person! More specifically, I’m a Helping People Find Their Perfect Home person. I go about it with a no-pressure approach and lots of patience, solely focusing on making your experience as enjoyable as possible.
With me, the home-buying process is easy and stress-free. I understand the emotional demands that buying a house can entail; I bought my first home fairly young (at 25 to be exact), and have since purchased a new build and investment property that I oversee as landlord.
But enough about me! Here’s what you can expect to happen when we work together.
1Our First Date
Coffee? Lunch? RE/MAX office? It’s your pick! Our first meeting will just be a casual meet-up to figure out where you’re at. We’ll chat about why you want to buy a home, where you see yourself, and establish all your needs vs. wants.
Easy, helpful, and quick. Getting pre-qualified for a loan is the important next step of the buying process, and can be done over the phone or online in a matter of minutes. I can guide you through it and am happy to recommend some great mortgage professionals to help.
Let’s get looking! Once you’re pre-qualified and know your price range, we’ll use the MLS system to find some fantastic homes to view. Exploring the neighbourhood’s best parks, cafes, and schools is the perfect way to get a true feel for the community.
4The Closing Table
At this stage, you’ve found your new home! All we’ll have left to do is write a contract, finish the financing, and do the final inspection and any other conditions.
5The Happily Ever After
Finally, we’ll close the transaction and you can move into your new home! I’ll help you prepare for a smooth transition and get settled in.
