  • Her clients know they are receiving the best possible attention and service

WHAT TO EXPECT

Initial Phone Consultation

Summer will schedule a complimentary 15 minute phone consultation with you. During this call, she will briefly discuss what you are looking for, your current situation, and any other questions or concerns you may have. She will explain her use of a buyers survey and why this exercise is beneficial to both the buyers and herself. If you are obtaining financing, she will also discuss your options so you will be prepared and feel confident in your lenders even prior to meeting with her in person. To schedule an initial phone call, please contact us.

 

First Meeting

Purchasing a home is an exciting life event and a very personal process, so your first meeting with Summer is designed to be as comprehensive and educational as possible. Together you will review the buyers survey. She will answer all of your questions and determine if she is the right fit for you. This initial meeting time can range from 60 minutes to up to 2 hours.

 

During the meeting, the following topics will be discussed:

  • What is most important to you
  • Neighborhoods/areas of interest
  • The home buying process
  • Strategies for successful negotiation
  • current market conditions and what your dollar will buy
  • How we work, and how a real estate professional is compensated

The expectations of both parties will also be discussed, as well as fiduciary responsibilities and how clients formalize their relationship with an agreement designating Summer as their Realtor. By the end of the meeting, it should be clear whether or not both parties are a good fit for each other.
