Meet in Person & Create Your Wish List 🤝

Let’s get to know each other! Once you’re ready to work with our team, we’ll meet together for a Buyer Consultation to focus your search and determine what you want and need in a home.

Pre-qualification 💲

We can provide a choice of great mortgage partners, who can help you determine your buying price range with confidence. Be prepared to dig into paperwork during this part of the process such as pay stubs, W2’s, and tax returns. The lender will do a full review and then tell you what you will be able to borrow in order to purchase a home. This is a vital step in the home buying process! 

Listing Alerts sent to you based on your criteria ✅

We'll get to know you — Need to move for a job? Want a shorter commute? Getting married? Having a baby? Need to upgrade or downsize?  At this stage in the process, we’ll send you notifications about the newest listings that you’re most likely to be excited about.  Be sure to let us know which ones jump out at you so that we can skip to the next step and schedule a viewing.

Schedule Viewings & Attend Open Houses 🏠

Here’s where the buying process gets really fun! We’ll  schedule tours of the homes that you’ve loved from our listing alerts and we'll check out Open Houses together. We’ll talk about how the budget will work and make sure that we find you the perfect home.

Find the Perfect Home & Write the Offer 📝

When you’re ready to make an offer, we will prepare and present a written offer to the seller. And while everyone loves getting their offer accepted right away, the seller could come back to us with a counter offer, or reject your initial offer all together. We’re happy to walk you through each of these possibilities and exactly how to handle them. Once the offer is accepted, it’s time to get your financing finalized and move forward to the next step!

Acceptance, Appraisal & 🔎Inspection 

The sellers accepted your offer, and the home is going through appraisal and inspection. The appraisal guarantees that the price of the property matches the condition of the property while the inspection makes sure that everything in the home is functioning properly and there are no major issues inside. These are the last steps before the shiny keys to your home are placed in your hand... for good! 

Time to Close & Get the Keys 🗝

Get excited because it’s time to close on your home! This process includes going through all of the final paperwork and signing your name (a lot!). Don't forget to bring all of the paperwork you’ve collected along the way and your down payment

Celebrate! 🥂

And now it's time to take the first step
