Buying a home can be easy and fun. We handle the details, give you advice, recommendations and execute for you along the way. You just focus on making the decisions that are right for you.

Our 7 steps to becoming a homeowner.
  1. Find, negotiate and secure the right home for you
  2. Inspect the heck out of the home. (we will tell you what due diligence we would perform)
  3. Negotiate from those inspections
  4. Make final decisions on your loan and homeowners insurance
  5. Arrange utilities for the day of closing
  6. Sign closing documents
  7. SMILE – you own a home

Not only is buying easy, it’s never too early to talk with me about your thoughts. I’m happy to help you a year or more before you ever buy.

If you are just exploring and/ or want to do some deep diving on due diligence we appreciate you stopping by. To say thanks we want to share some helpful buyer links that might be useful to you.


Quick Guides to Austin Real Estate

Quick guides to Austin real estate series

I’m super excited to launch the first in a series of short and practical webinars to help explain the various parts of the home buying and selling process.  These “quick guides” are designed to get buyers, sellers, and investors up-to-speed on the different parts of a real estate transaction.  You can count on these sessions to be:

  • FREE,
  • Quick (15-30 minutes with time for questions),
  • Easy to sign up, and
  • Chock full of practical, common sense guidance from yours truly

To kick off the quick guide series, we will cover some of the initial steps of the real estate transaction for both buyers and sellers.  We’ve broken it into three sessions between now and the end of the year:

Summer is best tolerated in Austin, Texas under a nice front porch with shade. It also helps to be in a walkable neighborhood like Hyde Park where almost all your neighbors hang out on them and really get to know one another. We think these homes and porches are really cool. (no summer pun intended but…
