Buying Your Home

For 27 years I have been involved with every kind of real estate transaction and have successfully negotiated deals in all aspects of the real estate community, from re-sales, new home construction, raw land, distressed properties and even mobile homes. A home purchase is probably the largest single purchase you will ever make in your lifetime; don’t you deserve an agent who has the expertise to make sure you get full value?

What is your interest?
BUYING A NEW HOME: Having represented builders of past and present, including Conner, Lozier, Murray Franklyn, Polygon, and Chaffey, I readily provide insight on the nature of their homes and what differentiates them individually. Many buyers’ agents might understand the purchase process, but does the same knowledge extend to the home you are buying? Put my experience to work for you.
CHOOSING A BANK OWNED OR DISTRESSED PROPERTY: Although we are working our way out of the recession, there are still many distressed properties in our marketplace. Are you interested in pursuing one of these homes with an agent who can get the job done? I understand the process, and can advise you as to the many challenges of purchasing a home under such conditions, whether it is a short sale, auction property or bank owned. I have negotiated successful purchases of all types of transactions.
PURCHASING A RESALE HOME: The most prominent of choices in the general marketplace; my abilities are not limited to the foregoing categories. Many listings are in area neighborhoods I have sold in the past, and can share the past scenarios and those of past clients who lived in these communities. If built in the past twenty years, odds are I recall the builder and reception of the marketplace when the home was new.
