Buying Information

You won't find your dream home yourself on the Internet! The 10% of the Realtors who do 90% of the business notify their own clients of their newest listings, many times even before they appear on the market or show up on Internet websites. Moreover, consumer real estate websites are notorious for displaying leftover, outdated listings - listings that are already under contract!

There is a solution to end this potential for frustration. Just as sellers hire the best agent to market their home, savvy buyers do the same to ensure the highest level of service and ready access to the newest listings. Typically, real estate services for buyers as paid for as a part of the fees provided to listing agencies in cooperation with buyer agents. As such, why wouldn't you also hire the best?

The answer is here. Click on "New Listing Notification" to receive daily updates of listings that have just come onto the market! If you select "Privileged Buyers Program", you will be asked to fill out a form that will be sent directly to me! I will set up a webpage just for you and provide you with the most up-to-date listings that meet your search criteria. This search profile can easily be modified as well if your criteria should change. If you simply prefer to look at all of the listings on the market, then select "MLS Access"" to look at all of the listings on the market.
