Buying a home is undoubtedly an exciting time in one’s life, but it can come with its fair share of stress and challenges. My job as a real estate agent is to maximize the help you receive in purchasing your dream home while minimizing the stress and challenges that may come along the way.

Because of my yearning to provide superior quality care, my number one aim is to listen to the buyer’s needs and to do my very best to help meet those needs.

Buying a home is not merely about finding the right home at the right cost. The community in which the home resides is a very high priority, and I am extremely knowledgeable about the ins and outs of communities in Bluffton and beyond. I enjoy sharing this information with prospective buyers to ensure my clients get as much information as possible to make an informed choice both about prospective homes and communities.

I like to take a look at the whole picture, and this is in no way limited merely to what my clients desire in their new home and their new community. I also provide support to help my clients understand how to go through the home buying process on a financial level. What can you afford? How should you obtain financing? What is a wise way to proceed? When would it be advisable to step back and reevaluate before proceeding with your search?

You will more than likely have many questions, whether you already live locally or plan to relocate to the area. How is the local market? I offer Stats on my website, but also am happy to share via telephone or in person my take on the current market.

You may have questions about the local economy, the school system, the area’s extracurricular activities, distances between popular towns, and more. The opportunity for me to answer questions from clients is one of the most enjoyable aspects of my work.

In addition to your various questions, you will of course want to do a preliminary search to see where you might like to begin should you choose to contact me to see how I can meet your real estate needs.

In addition to the multiple home searches I provide on my website, I also can send listings by e-mail. You may want to use the more traditional search, but I also offer an advanced Map Based Real Estate Search that can help you pinpoint homes available in areas that may be of particular interest to you.

Remember when you begin your new home search to take into consideration the full gamut of buying a home. Not only will you want to check your credit rating and review your budget to see what you can comfortably afford as a down payment and monthly payment, but you will also want to take into account the closing costs involved once you find the right home.

Regarding the closing costs, you can expect

  • Lender fees (including charges for loan processing, underwriting, preparation, and establishing an escrow account)
  • Third-party fees (including charges for insurance, title search, title insurance, appraisals, attorney fees, regime or association transfers, and home inspections)
  • Government fees (including deed recording and state & local mortgage taxes)
  • Escrow and interest fees (including homeowner’s insurance, loan interest, real estate taxes, and occasionally private mortgage insurance)

From the very start of the home buying process to the very last step, I am here to help in whatever way I can. I so thoroughly enjoy taking clients through the entire journey of purchasing a home that it is not uncommon that clients call me after they purchase their home with questions about settling into their new home and community.

In addition to my passion to help people buy and sell homes, I love the Bluffton and surrounding area so much that I find contentment in helping people to find what they need once they have made their purchase.

Please call me on my cell phone at 843-338-2120 with any questions or to set up an appointment to begin your home buying journey.
