Buyers Services

The real joy of being a San Diego Realtor is helping people achieve the dream of home ownership.

Owning a home provides you with many economic advantages, and it makes you an integral member of your local community. For buyers shopping for homes in San Diego, I am proud to offer the following services:

  • Deep understanding of the local real estate market to provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision. I’m a San Diego Native. This is my town. My husband and I own a home in Carmel Mountain Ranch. I was brought up in the Poway Unified School District. I’ve lived all over San Diego County; from my time at the University of San Diego, to beach living in Pacific Beach to living downtown in the Marina District and Little Italy
  • Preview homes on the market and provide feedback
  • Show you homes on the market and provide feedback
  • Provide you with custom property profile reports, neighborhood reports and school reports
  • Provide you with color brochures and a hard copy photo tour with listing data information for every home we tour
  • Follow up with any questions you have about each property we tour
  • Network with agents in communities you are looking at and report back to you with the scoop on any new upcoming listings before they hit the MLS
  • Based on your preferred communication method I will email, text, send you a FB message or pick up the phone (people still know how to pick up the phone – I do) when a new listing comes on the market that fits your search criteria

TIPS FOR BUYERS


Get pre-qualified

This is the most important step in preparing to buy a home. Getting pre-qualified will tell you how much you can realistically afford to pay for a home. It will also help you when it’s time to get your offer accepted by a seller. If you need a recommendation for a qualified lender, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Discuss your plans with a reputable local real estate agent

As your professional buyer’s agent, I track the local housing market on a daily basis and provide you with personalized recommendations and advice. The knowledge I bring to the search and negotiation process can save you money and time while alleviating frustration. My goal is to assist you in finding the home that best fits your needs in the most cost -effective and painless manner possible.

Get listing alerts by e-mail

Make looking for a home easy with regular e-mail alerts notifying you when properties matching your search criteria come to the market. As your search progresses, you can adjust these alerts to fine tune your search criteria.

Keep an open mind

As a buyer, you need to be guided by your goals and dreams, not the hype and doom-and-gloom so often created by the media. While you must take broader economic forces into consideration, the decision to buy a home is based on your need for shelter, the desire to be more connected to your communit y and your long-term financial security. I look forward to serving as your Realtor and assisting with your next home search!
