Colleen Linder (buyer's agent) really listened to our needs for a new home, and found us the perfect fit. I had been expecting a very long search, given our specific asks. But with Colleen's sharp eye and diligence, she was able to pinpoint a house that had everything we needed, despite its listing not mentioning features that would have naturally popped it up in our search criteria. I still don't know how she did it! In summary we were very happy with the results, and it's all thanks to Colleen.

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!
