How do I find the right sales professional to work with?

  • Call the agent to make sure you enjoy talking with them because you will be spending a lot of time together.

House Hunting Tips

  • While you are viewing a home, bring up things you wish were different, or you would like to
  • change. A good agent will have great ideas for you. Don’t feel like you are being critical...
  • this may be your next home.
  • Is an older home as good a value as a new home?
  • New homes generally have more space in the rooms where today's families do their living,
  • like a family room or activity area.
  • They're usually easier to maintain, too. However, many homes built years ago offer more
  • total space for the money, as well as larger yards.
  • Consider a home warranty to get the peace of mind you deserve, we strongly recommend it.
