When my husband and I decided to buy another home we met Melissa. We had an idea of what we wanted and Melissa listened as we looked at properties. Melissa found the perfect property, put our offer together and submitted it in a few hours. The offer was accepted and we had the keys in our hands in 18 days. If you want to work with a realtor who listens, knows the area, has proven skills in negotiation I would highly recommend calling Melissa Hudson.

What is a Real Estate Buyer’s Agent?

A buyer’s agent represents the buyer in a real estate transaction. Our agents start with a casual conversation about your wants and needs. We then craft a custom search for homes based on your criteria.

We also help you secure financing through a lender, show you homes, help you through the decision process, research properties for you, write and negotiate offers… and this is just the beginning!

Our buyer’s agents are full-service from start to finish. A lot of other agents “hand off” their buyers once they are under contract. Not us! We schedule your inspection and even attend it to make sure all your questions are answered. We also schedule and attend the appraisal to make sure there are no hiccups along the way.

And the best part of our job… handing over the keys!

How Much do I Pay a Buyer’s Agent?

Here is the best part… the seller pays the buyer’s agent out of their proceeds. You get all the benefits of our services and it doesn’t cost you anything!
