Let’s begin your home-buying journey together!

The process of shopping for a home has become increasingly transparent with the use of new technology, apps, and interactive home tours. However, the transaction process – from contract to close – is still a journey as unique and intricate as the homes themselves.

Every process is different and needs the experienced, skilled, detailed guidance of a real estate professional. That’s where we come in! Our mission is to guide you through the buying steps so you can make the absolute best decisions confidently and with peace of mind. At the end of the day, we want you to sleep soundly at night (in your new home, of course)!

Done daydreaming about your next home?

A look ahead at your journey

The buyer’s roadmap and what to expect

First meeting

You’ll meet with your buyer’s agent to discuss your timeline, goals, needs, wants, and expectations. Your agent will educate you more about the buying process.


Time to talk with your lender about your financing options, down payment, closing costs, and other fees. This will help you be financially prepared with no surprises!


Now the fun begins! Your buyer’s agent will help you begin an extensive search online for homes that are within your budget and meet your needs.


Your buyer’s agent will set up showing appointments for you. Together you’ll view homes that you are interested in and that meet your needs until you find “the one”!

Making an offer

After finding the right home, you’ll sign a strong offer. You buyer’s agent will help you negotiate the terms of the contract if needed.


With an accepted offer you’ll deposit the earnest money and complete the loan application with your lender within the timeframe of the contract.

Attorney approval

Your buyer’s agent will connect you with a professional real estate attorney who will review the contract terms and conditions to make sure your interests are protected.


Performing a professional home inspection is highly recommended. Your buyer’s agent will schedule this, attend with you, and help you negotiate any repair requests if needed.


A licensed appraiser will inspect the home and evaluate comparable properties to assess the value on behalf of your lender. This will help finalize your financing requirements.

Last steps

You’ll finalize any documents needed, receive mortgage commitment, and get the”clear to close” from your lender and attorney. Lastly, you and your buyer’s attorney will do a final walkthrough of the home prior to closing.


After ensuring the contract’s terms are fulfilled, the title and keys are exchanged. Cheers, you’ve successfully made it through the real estate process!
