Love where you live

We know that buyers don’t fall in love with a home before they fall in love with the town, neighborhood, and community first. That's why we are 100% committed to sharing what it is really like to live here: to help you discover the right area for you. This includes local grocery stores, gyms, favorite restaurants, and weekly updates on family activities & seasonal events.

We’ve guided hundreds of clients just like you. We provide you with everything you need to know about what it’s really like to live here, giving you the ability to make the right decisions that work for YOU. Our goal from day one is simple - to help you fulfill your real estate dreams so you too can say, “I love where I live!”

Fall in Love with DC

We make buying a home easy. Simply follow our step-by-step buyer’s guide!

Step 1 - Meet in person or virtually and create a wishlist

It’s time to get to know each other! Let’s meet. Our Buyer Consultation not only allows us to determine what you want and need in a home but also to define the right neighborhoods for your personality. It also gives you the chance to take confidence in the fact that we are perfectly positioned to represent you throughout the entire home-buying journey.

Step 2 - Pre-approval

We’ll introduce you to our trusted mortgage partners, who can help you to determine your buying price range with confidence. There is a little paperwork involved in this process such as providing pay stubs, W2’s, and tax returns but we’ll make it clear what you need to bring to the table. The lender will do a full review and then tell you the amount you will be eligible to borrow in order to purchase a home.

Step 3 - Listing alerts sent to you based on your criteria

At this stage of the process, we’ll send you notifications about the listings that you’re most likely to be excited about based on our understanding of your wants and needs. If one (or more) jumps out at you, let us know! We can schedule a viewing as soon as possible...

Step 4 - Schedule viewings and attend open houses

There’s no dream like a real estate dream, and here’s where the buying process gets fun! We’ll go to local open houses together and schedule viewings of the homes that you’ve selected from our listing alerts. We’ll talk about how the budget will work and make sure no questions go unanswered as we navigate the road to your perfect home.

Step 5 - Find the perfect home and write an offer

When you’re ready to go for it, your agent will present a written offer to the seller. While everyone loves getting their offer accepted right away, there is often a period of negotiation before the final price is agreed upon. Don’t let this daunt you! We’re happy to walk you through each of these possibilities and exactly how to handle them. We’ve got your back! Once the offer is accepted, it’s time to get your financing in order and really get this moving forward...

Step 6 - Acceptance, appraisal, and inspection

Once the seller accepts your offer, the home must go through an appraisal and inspection process. The appraisal guarantees that the price of the property matches the condition of the property while the inspection makes sure that everything in the home is functioning properly and there are no major issues inside. This is the last step before the keys are placed in your hand... and the home is yours!

Step 7 - Time to close and get the keys

Oh yes, now is the time to get excited; you’re closing on your new home! This step includes going through all of the final paperwork and signing your name (a lot!). You’ll just need to bring all of the paperwork you’ve collected along the way and your down payment.

Step 8 - Celebrate!

Congratulations on the purchase of your new home! It’s time to celebrate. Don’t forget to invite us to your housewarming; we love a good party!
