Buying a home is exciting, but it can be a bit daunting. As an agent with hundreds of successful transactions, I have the knowledge, experience, and track record to help you avoid these common mistakes and smoothly guide you through every step of the home-buying process.


Not getting pre-approved for a mortgage before shopping for a home is the most common mistake. As an experienced agent and homeowner myself, I've seen time and time again, people avoiding the pre-approval letter like they avoid dentist appointments. Doing so will only hurt you in the long run and waste valuable time in the search process. Getting a pre-approval letter from a qualified, reputable mortgage broker will not only help expedite the search, but it will give you the upper hand when we negotiate the deal for the home you want. Get started by connecting with our mortgage parters here.


Not knowing the market and what you can negotiate for. Buyers, and sellers alike, are always looking to save money by circumventing professional help. In the world of real estate, this is the worst thing you can do. As a buyer, it's primordial you use an experienced Realtor to handle negotiations on your behalf, search property sales history so you don't overpay, and negotiate credits at closing for repairs. Very few Realtors can differentiate between a good buy and a risky investment.

Let me use my expertise to help you land your dream home at the price and terms of your choosing. I am available to answer any questions, show you properties, and negotiate the best deal so you can feel confident and happy in your new home.
