buying

If you want to discuss buying with me, it’s pretty easy to get started, just drop me a quick note here. My preference is to start off with a visit to make sure we are a good fit and that I’m able to help you. If you’re here in Austin maybe coffee, cookies or lunch? Can’t wait to meet you! What’s your schedule look like?

If are a fit, we will get you out in the field looking at homes pretty fast. We like to focus on educating you to the market first. We do that by showing lot’s of homes. We show homes a little differently than others – you might click here to learn about speed dating for homes
