I dislike pushy salespeople and promise I am not one. I work very hard to provide guidance, resources, superior research and the occasional hand-holding through the buying and selling process. There is no cost to have a buyer's agent, as the seller pays the fee. I do not ask my clients to sign an exclusive buyer agency contract, but prefer to work on a verbal authorization with a mutual trust.
I NEVER practice "dual agency".
I am your exclusive Buyer Broker.
Buying a home is an exciting, yet sometimes daunting, experience and I understand the concerns and issues involved. I will use all of the available technology and tools to ensure you find the right home. My hard working style, easy going nature and extensive knowledge of the Triangle will make your move a smooth and pleasant experience.
As a Buyer's Agent my services include:
- Be the first to know! Personalized daily hotsheets of all new listings that match your specific requirements
- Strong negotiating. I do the research to get the best price for you.
- Connections to mortgage lenders, attorneys, insurance agents, home inspectors, termite inspectors, handymen, etc.
- Scheduling appointments, attending all inspections, negotiating repairs after inspections. Following all details, so you don’t have to.
- Seller pays my fee.
Why Use a REALTOR®?
All real estate licensees are not the same. Only real estate licensees who are members of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® are properly called REALTORS®. They proudly display the REALTOR "®" logo on the business card or other marketing and sales literature. REALTORS® are committed to treat all parties to a transaction honestly. REALTORS® subscribe to a strict code of ethics and are expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge of the process of buying and selling real estate. An independent survey reports that 84% of home buyers would use the same REALTOR® again.
- A REALTOR® can help you determine how much home you can afford. Often a REALTOR® can suggest ways to accrue the down payment and explain alternative financing methods.
- A REALTOR®, in addition to knowing the local money market, also can tell you what personal and financial data to bring with you when you apply for a loan.
- A REALTOR® is already familiar with current real estate values, taxes, utility costs, municipal services and facilities, and may be aware of local zoning changes that could affect your decision to buy.
- A REALTOR® can usually research your housing needs in advance through a Multiple Listing Service--even if you are relocating from another city.
- A REALTOR® can show you only those homes best suited to your needs--size, style, features, location, accessibility to schools, transportation, shopping and other personal preferences.
- A REALTOR® often can suggest simple, imaginative changes that make a home more suitable for you and improve its utility and value.
- A REALTOR® is sensitive to the importance you place on this major commitment you are about to make. Look for a real estate professional to facilitate negotiation of a win-win agreement that will satisfy both you and the seller.
