Buyers' Representation

As your Buyer's Representative, we can make the process of property hunting much easier and more efficient than if you did it all yourself. We can help you get financing, guide you through local markets, help you determine your budget, and prioritize a list of essential features that you need in your next property. We'll save you valuable time by finding the properties that best suit your requirements, and will show you only the most promising ones.

Once you've found a place that catches your eye, we'll look at comparable properties in the area to help determine a offer price. Then we'll negotiate on your behalf with the seller to make sure you get the most favorable terms.

It's our job to look after your best interests, and we will do so at no cost to you as a buyer.

Sellers' Representation

Selling a property on your own can be an overwhelming task. There's advertising to plan and budget for, private showings to arrange, purchase offers to negotiate, contract contingencies to worry about, and complicated paperwork to fill out. Make it easy on yourself by putting your home in the hands of seasoned professionals. We have extensive experience marketing properties and showing them to their best advantage.

First, we'll perform a comparable market analysis to determine the most appropriate price for your home. Then we'll advise you if improvements are needed before taking it to market. We'll advertise your property through a variety of methods, including local publications and online MLS® listings. We may even showcase your home as part of our site's Featured Listings.

When it comes to negotiating a purchase offer, we'll make sure that you get the best price the market will allow. We'll help you understand contract contingencies and details of the closing process, in addition to handling all the paperwork for you. Essentially, we're here to represent you throughout the entire selling process, and to make sure that your real estate transaction is a positive and profitable experience.
