Not all home buyer agents are the same. Benefit from a higher level of service, at no cost to you.

  • Estimation of total closing costs.
  • Estimation of monthly home ownership costs.
  • Assistance with lender consultation, to obtain loan preapproval.
  • Review of eligibility for currently available down payment assistance programs.
  • Local market data research.
  • Direct access to the San Diego MLS via smartphone/tablet app, that instantly sends your “Favorite” listings for my review.
  • I recommend you start reviewing listings right away, even if you’re not ready to buy yet, so that you become familiar with the market.
