Your Buyer’s Agent – Liz McCarthy
Purchasing a home is typically one of the largest, most complicated and most emotional financial transactions of one’s life. Not only will you be finding a new home, but also making an important investment and creating a significant asset. There is a lot at stake and we are committed to guiding you expertly through the process and representing your best interests at every step. That is the fiduciary duty we owe to all our clients and we take it very seriously.
Before even starting the search, we suggest you make a list of your 10 or 12 most important criteria for a new home. Then we will meet to discuss your timeline, price range, needs, preferences, special circumstances, and other purchase parameters for the property that will best suit you, your lifestyle and goals. And then plot a course forward.
You can rest assured that you will receive the utmost care, attention, hard work, and professionalism. We love what we do and our success is entirely dependent upon your satisfaction. We promise unparalleled service and the highest ethical standards and we’re confident that your home purchase will be the start of a long-term relationship.
