"More than a Realtor... a whole Team of Real Estate Experts"
Attention to Detail
We spend a lot of time digging in, searching, and previewing the properties we show our buyers. Unlike other firms that set you up on an automatic filter system and just let technology take care of the rest, we only work with a limited amount of buyers to give our client’s search special attention.
Once we've gotten ourselves into contract on the home you love, we will order reports, schedule inspections, review documents, and meet the inspectors with you. We've done this a few times, ;) so we are happy to advise you on what items may need your attention more than others. We also know who we need to ask if you have very specific inquiries about your soon to be new home.
During the final stage of buying, we assist in setting up appointments between you and the escrow company to sign. With our own in-house transaction coordinator, we gather all the disclosures and reports for your new home and provide you with an electronic copy to reference. Finally, when the day comes, we accompany you through the walk-through, and then, hand you your keys! We are there with you the whole way to answer any questions, and ensure a timely close of escrow
Offering to Buy
We ensure our clients receive the most accurate information by previewing all prospective homes & reviewing reports. We have great, established relationships with other realtors and know of properties before they hit the market. Once a potential home is identified, we review all information relevant to the property, and assist in determining terms and price. Our strong interpersonal skills help us defining the sellers motivation, and how to best negotiate on your behalf.
One of the things we uniquely offer our clients is our assistance with the appraisal. We prepare comps and present them to the appraiser when we meet him at the property. Many times, appraisers are not familiar with the area they are appraising. We want to be there to offer our expertise on the neighborhood, the schools, what has recently sold in the area. This will ensure the appraisal process runs smooth and if there are any questions, we are there to answer them.
As a buyer, you have a lot of decisions to make about what, when, and where. We provide you with the "ins and outs" of each neighborhood, and offer our expertise on timing. Have a lot of must have's? We want to know the details about your wants and needs, and if you would like to provide us with any feedback or changes to your home search- we love it! Finding out exactly what you do and don’t like only helps us focus our attention in the right direction.
Off Market Specialists
We specialize in off market (non-MLS), & pre-market property sales. This is mostly due to our established role in the community as a top selling agent. Karen and her team have created relationships with others in the business that are invaluable. Our connections allow our buyers the unique opportunity to shop a whole other market with us that is unavailable to most.
