The truth is there are dozens and dozens of individuals tasks that I do, much of which is behind the scenes, to help you find a home, create and present a successful offer, get into escrow, and then navigate all the things that must be accomplished during the due diligence period in order to get to the closing table successfully.

  3. Education and guidance on the home purchase process from start to finish
  4. A Buyer’s Handbook (hard copy or online PDF)
