But buying your first home can be a complex, intimidating experience. Working with a qualified real estate buyer's agent can help you achieve your goal of finding a home in the shortest time, for the best price, and with the least stress.

Working with a a Buyer's Agent - What to Expect From Our Team

As a first time buyer time buyer, we will meet with you to discuss your wants and needs. Usually in this first meeting we accomplish three goals:

1. We'll discuss your motivation to own a home, including:

- Your needs/wants in a home
- Insight into your lifestyle
- Your timeframe for moving
- Financing and affordability
- Locations, including neighborhoods / schools / commute times

2. We'll cover any questions you may have. Some ideas:

- How we work with our clients?
- How deep is our knowledge of the local real estate market?
- How does our role as your exclusive agent work?

3. We mutually decide whether or not we're a good match for one another for your home search.

Should we make the decision to work together, you are assured of my fiduciary loyalty and dedication to your best interest. In fact, to guarantee this, we offer an optional "Exclusive Buyer/Tenant Representation Agreement." Having an agreement in place insures you have the right representation and a dedicated real estate professional working for you and not the seller.
