do I need an agent to buy a house?

We strongly recommend to have an agent represent you when buying a house. Agents have a fiduciary responsibility to you - we are bound by law to always have your needs as our priority during the entire process. You are welcome to move on and find another if you feel, at any point, your agent has other goals in mind.

In addition, real estate agents are required to go through training and get licensed. We are specialized and have years of experience (we have 18+ years) to help you make the best out of your next home.

And… did we mention that this is a free service to you as a buyer? It’s common practice that the seller pays for the agents’ (the buyer’s and seller’s agents) fees.

am I ready to buy a house/home?

Buying a home is a HUGE decision! Take the time to address your finances (credit score, always important!) and discuss it with those who are involved/affected. You’re always welcome to contact us – we can set up a meeting to help you figure out if you’re ready. If you’re looking for a resource (to learn more about the home-buying process at your own pace), we’ve made a webinar series about that as well.

I think I’m ready... can we discuss my unique situation first, before signing you as my agent?

Yes, of course! Please feel free to contact us first if you have any questions – either fill out our form here or call us at (909)376-8399. Consultations are always free. We can go over your numbers, make a plan, and move together towards your dream of owning a home.
