You book airfares and hotels online. You pump your own gas. You buy and bag a week’s worth of groceries in the self-checkout line.

Yet buying a home is NOT (nor should it be) a DIY activity. Sure, you can do lots of looking online. But when it comes to exploring neighborhoods, searching for qualified properties, evaluating choices, making offers, and moving from “in contract” to “sold,” you absolutely need a professional agent’s assistance.

The housing forecast for 2015 is rosy, and with interest rates likely to remain low for much of the year, NOW is the time to buy. (See this from CNN about the “return” of first-time homebuyers.)

I can help! If you know anyone who is considering a purchase in 2015, please introduce us. You can trust me to help them:

  • Decide if buying actually makes sense – or not
  • Clarify and refine their wish list
  • Find an ideal home
  • Gather resources
  • Focus on practical solutions while honoring emotional responses and reducing stress
  • Write a competitive, winning offer
  • Close successfully on the property of their choice

As my client N – who never thought she would be able to buy in San Francisco – writes,

“Cynthia’s knowledge and expertise of the…complex real estate market is fantastic. She understands how important owning a home is for her clients, and takes the time to educate them about the process. She really listens to what they’re looking for in a property so she can find the right fit and creative a positive experience. She is a joy to work with!”

You can trust me to care for your friends. Have them check out my website or for more information. Or call or email me so I can invite you and your friend to be my guests for an introductory tea or lunch!
