Buying

While looking around, doing your Austin home buying research these helpful buyer links might come in handy.
If you are curious about buying a home and using me as your Realtor, these are a few  things that differentiate me from others.
  • Selling Central Austin a has been my passion since 1994. I like the idea of keeping my buyers as central as possible because  it’s historically been the first area to appreciate in an up market and the last to go down in a down market.
  • You will never be sold to. Instead you’ll be told about potential resale issues. I tend to point out the reasons you wouldn’t want to buy a particular home instead of just telling you “this one is great, your should buy it”.  Sometimes, you won’t like hearing all the reasons not to buy that home but for me – that is a bog part of my job.
  • You won’t be tied up with a buyers representation agreement with me and as long as we feel like we are working well together -  I’ll consider it an honor to represent you as your buyers agent.

If you are buying and need some help, give me a call or send me an e-mail. I’m always happy to help.

Cheers,
