So, you’ve decided to become a homeowner - how exciting! This next phase of your life in the home buying process is sure to be a thrilling ride. That being said, you need a Realtor that can take the reins and help guide you through a smooth transaction. There are many moving parts to a real estate transaction, so having someone you can trust will help eliminate some of the stress that can come with buying a home. Knowing that your Realtor is someone that is knowledgeable about the market and finding the right home for you, making an offer, negotiating, and making your way to the closing table is essential in the home buying process.
If you’re not sure where to begin, don’t panic! I’m here to give you a breakdown of the initial steps you should take to connect with the right Realtor for you. When I’m working with clients, it’s my goal to give them as much information as possible, be available when they have questions or concerns, and overall be a source of comfort during the real estate transaction. Let’s be real – buying a home is one of the biggest decisions + biggest purchases you’ll ever make in your life. So, doing your homework upfront and making sure you are comfortable with your Realtor will only benefit you in the long run.

I have been a writer most of my life, but it wasn't until college that I realized I could use this hobby of mine to tell stories and to educate people on different topics. I have published works in various newspapers, magazines, and websites, and continue to find ways to incorporate my passion for writing, sharing stories, and educating into my life and career.
