My Buying Process

Whether you’re in the market for your first home, second home, or a long-term investment property, I strive to provide a seamless client experience.

I know that buying a home can feel stressful and overwhelming. That’s why I’ve designed my home buying process to be as streamlined and straightforward as possible.

It Starts with a Conversation

Buying a home is a deeply personal experience. While determining your list of needs and wants is fundamental, truly understanding your unique lifestyle and personality is also essential. Having all of this information will assist me in guiding you to finding your perfect home.

During our in-person or online home buying consultation, it’s my goal to gain a comprehensive grasp of what your dream home feels like to you. Once I have that, I’ll provide you with a clear blueprint of what you can expect your home buying experience to look like.

Constant Communication

As a real estate agent, maintaining strong client relationships is central to everything I do. Following our buying consultation, I make sure to stay in constant contact, keeping you up to speed with every development of your home search.

From exciting new listings and insightful market trends to important neighbourhood updates, you’ll hear about anything and everything that’s relevant to your home search directly from me.

Taking the “set it and forget it” approach isn’t my style. I care about your home buying experience, and will never make you feel like you’re left in the dark.

I’ve got your answers. Starting a conversation with me is easy.

Talking Numbers

With my background in finance (I’m a designated CA|CPA and worked at KPMG for almost six years), it’s safe to say I’m pretty handy with numbers.

I have a detailed comprehension of real estate-related financial specifics like:

  • Capital Cost Allowances
  • Mortgage Maintenance Costs
  • Investment Property Information
  • Cash Flow Analysis
  • Budgeting Tools
  • Property Taxes and Valuations

Finding a home you want in a neighbourhood you love is great, but with me, it’s only half the job. An integral part of my process is ensuring you’re set up for success by finding a home financing plan that makes sense for you.

If you find yourself easily overwhelmed by the numbers side of things, you can always rely on my years of practical financial experience for guidance.

Although I’ll always be available to you whenever you have a question or need guidance during the home buying process, I’ll also ensure you have my in-depth home buying guide too.

You can rely on my step-by-step guide to walk you through every stage of your home buying process in an easy checklist format. Everything you need to consider ahead of your move is thoroughly detailed in one concise document.
