Based on your own criteria and needs, we will preview targeted properties in a timely and diligent way. I will do this both on the Internet, as well as by personally viewing properties myself, in order to help you make a decision in the quickest way possible.
Once we fully understand your homebuyer requirements, we will focus our attention to showing you those homes on the market that are in the right location and at the right price.
We will return your phone call or e-mail within 24 hours or less and provide you with a weekly update on your search for a property.

We will discuss in detail the nature of your buyer representation choices as well as other issues and alternatives. We will also present and explain to you the representation agreement and the special services and benefits it offers.
We will discuss the features of a property that may affect its value. This is not a home inspection, but a discussion of the attributes that home buyers place a premium upon when purchasing a home.
We will review with you any available inspection reports and other documents pertaining to the condition of the property and all physical defects of the property provided to us.

If you wish, we will request to present the offer to purchase directly to the seller in the presence of the listing agent.
We will accompany you on a walk-through of the property (if one is provided for in the sales contract) before closing, and we will assist you in dealing with any problems discovered during the walk-through.
We will monitor and inform you of the progress of the purchase agreement.
