Expect exclusive service and exceptional results from your personal Realtor

As your personal agent, under contract to work only on your behalf and advocate for your best interests (not the seller’s) you’ll get the very best honest, loyal and diligent care. This VIP service is at absolutely no charge to my buyers and offers value-added advantages to ensure you’re fully informed and protected.

I listen to your wants and needs and work with you — on your schedule

We begin with an initial consultation where I’ll get to really understand your lifestyle, what’s important to you, what you’re looking for in your new home and location, your price range, time frame etc. We will also discuss the home buying process so you know what to expect at each step of the process. This fact-finding, “discovery” meeting ensures an efficient and convenient home search – less stressful and more successful for you!

I make you a stronger buyer ready to compete

As a buyer, you need to know exactly what your parameters are. Getting prequalified upfront for a mortgage lets you know what you can afford and will keep your home search focused. Having an official preapproval letter from your lender ready, (and if you’re paying cash, showing proof of funds) gives you the ability to act quickly and compete smartly in aggressive markets. Additionally, having your down payment ready and cash available is crucial to covering closing costs and if necessary, the difference between your lender’s appraisal and your offer price. I can refer you with confidence to reputable lenders at banks and mortgage brokers. After gathering all the relevant information, I enter your profile in my database plus a variety of other advanced property search programs. This information is instantly shared with my colleagues at Royal LePage Team, agents from other brokerages, and potential sellers to begin the property match process.

Get new listings right to your inbox

Next, I set you up with your own personal portal site to receive immediate notifications of any new properties/updates ONLY on homes for sale in your price range and profile. I am respectful of your time and attention. Beyond brokerage-listed homes on the market, you’ll also receive information about ‘coming soon’ properties, private sales, price reduced properties and ‘hidden gems’ such as power-of-sale properties and transactions under contract that have fallen through, even expired listings that may reconsider selling. My proactive approach to prospecting has landed many exceptional deals for my clients.

When you find a home that might interest you, even one you spot on the Internet, a sign or the street, simply contact me and I will arrange a convenient time to view based on your schedule.

I evaluate the home, as if it was my own investment

By conducting a mini inspection, I’ll point out any deficiencies you may miss such as cracks in the foundation, mould in the shower or shingles that need replacing. This evaluation is vital in making an informed decision – and key in the negotiating process.

As a buyer, you’re involved in an intricate process requiring many specialists. I have access to, and trust in, a wide network of professionals such as mortgage specialists, real estate lawyers, home inspectors, contractors and more.

My buyers are informed and strategic. I will provide you with comprehensive market information to make an educated decision. Findings such as current market value for similar homes in the neighbourhood, neighbourhood trends, current market conditions, any disclosures about the property, zoning, upcoming developments in the area and more. My buyers know the current fair market value of homes so they don’t overpay.

I negotiate the best price and terms possible for you

You have a Certified Negotiation Expert on your team and as your personal realtor I’ve ‘got your back’ in all aspects of purchasing a home. From writing a good clean offer that protects your interests to diligent research and follow-up, I am determined to get you the home you want at the best possible price and terms within your budget.

I’m at your service long after the sold sign comes down

I value your business and continue to assist with your needs long after the ‘deal is sealed.’ To help you facilitate a stress-free move, I register you with a ‘concierge service’ to assist you with all the moving tasks and provide timely reminders for a seamless, stress-free move. My happy home buying gift to you!

Let’s get to work in finding the best home for you!
