How can I help?

Buying a home is difficult emotionally. Like a lot of the biggest decisions, it is more emotional than coldly rational. People generally don’t select a house; they fall in love with it.

Part of that falling-in-love process is aesthetic: the sense you get within 10 seconds of walking into a place that it just feels happy and right. Part is aspirational; when people fall in love with a house, they aren’t really falling in love with the walls and the roof, they are falling in love with a beautiful vision of their future lives.

That process of falling in love is confusing and mysterious. When you’re buying a house, you’re making a stressful major financial decision based on a set of emotions you can’t control, don’t fully understand and can’t pin down in any concrete way.

You find yourself talking about where you’re going to put your furniture; you feel defensive when your Realtor mentions some of the place’s flaws; you feel the urge to brag about the house to your friends; you feel comfortable walking into the bedrooms and bathrooms, even on the first tour; you feel bereft at the thought of not having it. You’re just buying an object, but your heart is suddenly on the line.

Choosing a house is also difficult psychologically. The whole process forces you to separate what you think you want from what you really want. This is where your Realtor comes in.

From our first meeting, I will help guide you through this process. I will take the time to learn about you, your needs, your must haves, and your timeline, to help guide me in finding the right property for you. Before you sign anything, I will prove to you that I understand what you are looking for and let you know how I work and what services I can provide. Through meticulous research and knowledge of the local market, I will determine the actual value of your home to be sure that you don’t overpay. I will represent you through the entire buying process and help you find an inspector, lawyer, mortgage broker, or bank, if necessary.

Let’s work together to make the buying process as easy and hassle-free as possible. I look forward to the opportunity to meet with you!
