Her Clients Say It Best!

“We’ve worked with other realtors, and never really felt they provided much value for the commission – worse yet, sometimes it felt like we did all the work and they just somehow popped up at closing.Nicole, however was the complete opposite.She truly represented us in every way, and worked hard to answer questions we didn’t even think of. She was always accessible and dedicated to making sure we were comfortable with the process and the homes we were considering. We never felt any pressure to make a decision, and at no point did it seem like Nicole had an agenda of her own. She is very professional, and a great listener. ” – Charles

Commonly Asked Questions

How do I begin the process to buy?

The first step in buying real estate is to meet with a lender (or a few lenders) to find out what you can afford. The lender will want to know your debts, assets, credit score, income, and a few other tidbits to best determine your purchasing power.

How do I view the properties for which I am interested?

As we search for the property that best suits your needs we will likely view several properties in person – also called “showings”. Setting up showings requires coordination of your schedule, the seller’s schedule, and my availability. It is possible to schedule a showing on just one property, or we can set up a time block in order to see multiple properties in one session. All you need to do is tell me the addresses of interest and your availability and I will take care of the rest!

How will we communicate?

You can reach me through my office phone, cell phone, text, email, Facebook and LinkedIn. I am also a fan of the good old-fashioned face to face meeting. Just let me know what you prefer!

Besides the purchase price, what are the other costs I can expect when buying real estate?

One of the greatest aspects of buying real estate is that you pay no realtor commission fees – that is the responsibility of the seller. Outside of the purchase price of the property and your loan fees, a few other items that buyers are responsible for include (but are not limited to) loan closing fee, real estate closing fee, recording fees, and prorated items such as taxes and any Home Owner Association fees.

How long can I expect it to take for me to find the right property for me?

I work with clients for 30 days to over a year to find the property that best meets their needs. There are many variables when purchasing real estate, the timeframe really varies widely situation to situation. It can happen as fast or as slow as you and the market dictates.

Should I get a home inspection?

Home inspections are not required, but they are highly recommended. There is a lot of value in having an objective set of eyes examine the property from top to bottom. Buying real estate is a big investment and a big commitment. I feel it is better to spend less than $1000 on a home inspection to find out in advance about any underlying issues that may exist at the property you plan to purchase.

How quickly can I take ownership of my new property?

If you are paying cash for a property you may be able to take possession in as early as 3 weeks. If you are getting a loan the typical possession occurs 45 days after you sign a contract with the seller.
