The following provides information about me…consider it a mini-résumé. Think of it this way: companies don’t hire new employees without first verifying references and checking on the work history of the candidate. You shouldn’t work with a REALTOR® and their team without first checking into their work history and verifying their references either.
It’s About You, Not Me
The first thing you need to know is that when you engage me to work for and with you as your REALTOR®, I am legally obligated to act in your best interests and to put your interests before the interests of all others; including my own.
I am your personal advisor and the only thing(s) that matter to me are those things that matter to you.
What You Can Expect
You can expect an initial meeting in which we will discuss your plans, needs, and wants, and we’ll review the Buyer package I will have prepared specifically for you in advance. We will spend approximately one-hour together during our first meeting and we will:
- discuss your plans, goals, timelines, and competing priorities you may have;
- address any questions or concerns you may have;
- discuss my approach to helping you find and purchase your new home; and
- begin building our relationship and ensure we start out on the right foot.
My time is yours and during our initial meeting you will have as much time as you need to ask questions about me, the market, and/ or the purchase of your new home. If after our initial meeting we decide to work together, you can expect to begin searching for homes until we find “the one”. It may take days or weeks – it all depends on you; and that’s the way it should be.
After all, this is about you!
As you can imagine, there are a great many details to be covered when buying your new home. I will handle everything for you; all the while guiding you through the process, keeping you informed, and at all times making myself available to you. Communication is key!
You will only have to:
- decide on your new home;
- pay for and attend the home inspection;
- sign the appropriate paperwork; and
- start packing.
Remember, you hired me to do the work…why would you settle for anything less?
Why Work With Me?
There are approximately 3,000 REALTORS® licensed with the REALTORS® Association of Edmonton. That’s a lot of choice – in fact, too much choice.
While buying a home is the fun part of real estate, by-and-large most people find it extremely stressful. My job (aside from finding your home) is to make it as stress-free as possible and bear as much of the burden for you as I can, thereby allowing you to focus on moving.
When it comes to purchasing your new home, I will personally handle as many of the tasks as you wish me to; all the while keeping you up-to-date and informed about our progress. I will make sure you are aware of the next steps before they happen and will ensure you understand each step along the way so there aren’t any surprises and you don’t feel as though you are being ‘swept along’ in the process.
