As a REALTOR® I have the special resources to make searching for a home easier and more efficient. Software provided by the Kootenay Association of REALTORSR and the Canadian Real Estate Board allow me to set-up customized filters based on your individual needs and wants. Each day, it scans the MLS® looking for your new home and sends a notice to me. You can receive a copy of these listings by subscribing to my New Listings program, which will allow you to see sold listings and private information like taxes and REALTOR® notes. Each week, our office tours new properties for sale in the area and I’m able to talk with the listing agent and see first hand what a property looks like. If there are a few that I think you would like, it’s an opportunity to see them right away.
When buying a home, my services are free of charge – the commission is paid by the seller to my brokerage. Having someone on your side when negotiating a price is very important. That’s because the seller’s agent is a trained professional in negotiating and will use their skills to get the highest price for their client. When I negotiate on your behalf, you’re able to step back from the process without being exposed to aggressive bargaining or words that might cause you to reflect on the process of the sale rather than looking forward enjoying your new home.
Buying a home can be an exciting but sometimes overwhelming experience. I help people buy Columbia Valley real estate almost every day so I’m the best one to coordinate the sales process while you concentrate on moving preparations. I’ll take care of the title and lien searches, arrange a home inspection, and work with the seller’s agent to handle all the details. You may want an introduction to a mortgage broker, which I can arrange. Our office has relationships with a select few professionals who we feel are trustworthy and do quality work. Note that by law I cannot accept referral fees or commissions from other professionals involved in the exchange process so you can be assured that my loyalty is exclusive to your well-being.
