Moving to the Columbia area? I can help! If you're moving to the Columbia/Lexington/Chapin/Irmo/Lake Murray/Fort Jackson/Northeast Coumbia area, I can help you find the right home, building lot or builder. I can also assist in finding excellent contacts for mortgages, home inspections, closing attorney and more.
I am an Accredited Buyer Representative and offer FREE buyer representation. As a member of the Greater Columbia Multiple Listing Service, I have access to ALL homes for sale - resale homes AND new homes. Also, I am a life-long Columbia resident, so I know all of the Greater Columbia area - Lake Murray, Lexington, Irmo, Northeast Columbia, Fort Jackson, Chapin and more.
To find the right home or property, contact me (phone call, email or fill-out my online contact form and let me know your home search criteria (including price range or price maximum) and I will email listings to you right away. I pull directly from the MLS. This is the most up-to-date information. Information you may pull from various Internet real estate searches will probably not be as up-to-date.
HOW TO GET STARTED...
Be sure to contact me when you are ready to set an appointment.
A real estate buyer's representative represents the buyer who is purchasing property in a real estate transaction. Research by the National Association of REALTORS has shown that when a buyer's representative is used, the prospective buyer found a home one week faster and examined three more properties than consumers who did not use a buyer's representative.
The buyer's representative works for, and owes fiduciary responsibilities to, the real estate buyer and has buyer's best interests in mind throughout the entire real estate process. As your buyer's representative, I will:
Evaluate the specific needs and wants of the buyer and locate properties that fit those specifications.
Assist the buyer in determining the amount that they can afford (pre-qualify), and show properties in that price range and locale.
Assist in viewing properties -- accompany the buyer on the showings, or preview the properties on behalf of the buyer to insure that the identified specifications are met.
Research the selected properties to identify any problems or issues to help the buyer make an informed decision prior to making an offer to purchase the property.
Advise the buyer on structuring an appropriate offer to purchase the selected property.
Present the offer to the seller's agent and the seller on the buyer's behalf.
Negotiate on behalf of the buyer to help obtain the identified property -- keeping the buyer's best interests in mind.
Assist in securing appropriate financing for the selected property.
Provide a list of potential qualified vendors (e.g. movers, attorneys, carpenters, etc.) if these services are needed.
Most importantly, fully-represent the buyer throughout the real estate transaction, including the final home walk-thru and closing.
