Buying a Home

Make It Clean and Simple


Concentrating on the Buying Experience

As your agent, I go above and beyond to make sure buying your next home is a simple and pain-free process. Whether you're buying virtually or in person, I have you covered.

I've got several stops along the way such as Metro Brokers Financial, Metro Brokers Insurance and Metro Title Trust to help you secure the home of your dreams. Follow the steps below for more information.

1 | Pre-Approval

Find out how much home you can buy.

I will be able to connect you with a Metro Brokers Financial loan officer to get pre-approved. Most financial institutions offer pre-qualification for loans, but with Metro Brokers Financial, you can receive pre-approval.

Pre-approval shows that financing is already lined up before you make an offer on a home, where with pre-qualification, numerous problems could arise that put a kink in financing.

We can ensure you’re looking at the right properties that fit your budget so that there are no surprises once you make an offer.

Assess Your Needs

What's the driving force behind this move? What activities do you enjoy? How you live will help determine where you live.

Create a Wishlist

What are the "must have" features for your new home. Consider how much space you'll need, layout, lot size, kitchen, baths, etc.

Search With Me

I will send you a link where you can register and start your home search. This will keep you in the know about new and current listings, as well as the communities they are in.

Save Properties

Know exactly what you're looking for? You can save listings you're interested in and I can recommend some too, based on your preferences.

Phone or Web

Receive more personalized and targeted listings across all devices.

3 | Showings Your Way

I want your home buying experience to be as worry free as possible.

When you're ready to tour homes, I can conduct showings based on your comfort level. At the seller's discretion, virtual or in-person tours will be available.

I have a variety of technologies at my disposal to ensure we can find a home that fits your needs easily and conveniently.

4 | Make an Offer

I will guide you through every document required to make an offer using the digital Dotloop system.

So you’ve seen the house and you’re in love. Now it’s time to put in an offer! BHGRE Metro Brokers uses a paperless system called DotLoop to assist in this process. I will handle all the necessary documents in the cloud using DotLoop and you can e-sign them from any computer or wireless device. This allows you to submit your offer in record time as conveniently as possible.

5 | Loan Underwriting

Once the offer is accepted, the loan process begins.

If the offer was accepted, now Metro Brokers Financial will start putting together your loan. The process of securing the loan and gathering all of the necessary documents – known as underwriting – goes on behind the scenes. You’ll be asked to provide essential information such as bank statements and more, but this is a crucial step in the process.

6 | Get an Inspection

Find out if there are any problems with the house that need to be resolved before moving forward.

The home inspection is a crucial step so that you’re aware of any problems. The last thing you want in this process is a surprise. Any problems that arise here may change the deal, so be thorough and plan ahead.

7 | Importance of Insurance

Before closing, you need to protect your home.

At this point, you'll secure home insurance. You may also be able to get a discount by bundling your home and auto insurance together. Start getting quotes right now, so you can view your options and ensure you get the right coverage.

8 | Secure a Home Warranty

Protect your new investment.

Purchasing a home warranty is another protective measure that all owners need to consider. Home warranties cover the areas not included in insurance, such as repair and replacement of home appliances, A/C systems and much more.

9 | The Closing Table

You made it! Time to close and sign documents.

There’s just one last step, closing. This is where you review the final documents and sign them. Congratulations! You now have your dream home.
