Buyer Services

Buying a home is big deal. As Your Special Agent, I always keep in mind that this process is complex, time consuming, sometimes stressful, yet exciting.  Eighty-five percent of buyers today begin their experience by searching for properties online. It is just the beginning of the buying process.

Along with the confidence of having a full time REALTOR at your side, step by step, I offer you the following services:

  • Become Familiar with Pinellas County - In case you are new to the area, I have some wonderful videos about the area which should help you begin to get a good feel for the area.  Please click here for the video tour.
  • Finding Your Dream Home - access to the most current information available to be able to search for listings that fit your specific criteria. Once we identify homes of interest, I will arrange showings and when appropriate, help you put together an offer.
  • Negotiations - I will assist you in negotiating the contract. I will gather the most current information available on the property along with current comparative sales in the area to help us obtain the best possible price and terms in your contract. I have been involved in and negotiated hundreds of transactions, and have superior negotiating skills to successfully reach an agreement.
  • Mortgage Lending - I have excellent local contacts in the Mortgage Lending profession that I will be happy to refer you to. Everyone's financial picture is different, some more complex than others.  The lender's with whom I work have proven exceptionally helpful in working with all kinds of situations.
  • Closing Services - Choosing the right closing agent is one of the last and important steps of the buying process. Because I have closed hundreds of properties, I have closing Title Companies and Attorneys available to assist and guide you through the closing process.

My job is to make take the mystery out of real estate. I will be with you every step of the way, beginning with finding your dream home through the closing.  I work by referral and my vision is to give you such excellent service that when someone you know has something come up in the world of real estate, you will share my name with them!
