Whether you’re buying a house for the first time or you’re an experienced buyer, buying real estate is a complex process. The ability to look at houses for sale online on sites like the MLS listing service or Zillow helps sellers to see what’s available – but to assure that you are most informed about the area and the process, a local broker can help make the process work to your best advantage – and can find houses for sale in areas that meet your specific criteria.
Do you need an agent to find a house for sale? No.
Does it make sense to hire someone who knows the communities, understands the pitfalls, has the right connections, and can find the best houses for sale and negotiate the best deal? Of course.
As a native San Francisco Bay Area resident who has lived in the East Bay for over three decades. I have the connections and know-how to direct you toward lenders that can help you find the best financing possible. I know the cities and the neighborhoods and can direct you to the areas that meet your specific criteria and help you find a home that fits your budget and meets your goals for features, quality, and value.
” Tom was always, always available, day or night, weekdays or weekends. I could always count on a quick reply if I phoned him, or more likely, an immediate pick up of the call.”
“He helped us figure out what was most important to us, and he was willing to spend whatever time it took for us to come to a decision. We appreciated his infinite patience, his responsiveness, his staying in nearly constant communication with us, and his knowledge of how things work.”
Once we’ve found the home that’s right for you, I will guide you through the process of making an offer; ascertaining current values, negotiating the terms of the sale, getting your potential purchase inspected, repaired and appraised, and closing the sale. I pride myself in upholding the industry’s highest standards.
