Our 9-Step Home Buyer Process

We'll Guide You Through Every Step


Getting To Know You

When you're ready, we'll meet with you in person for a preliminary buyer consultation. During this meeting, we’ll discuss exactly what you want and need in a new home and give you an overview of the home buying process. 


Pre-Qualify Before You Buy

This essential step will help you understand what you can afford and give us added leverage in negotiations. If you’d like, we can introduce you to our trusted mortgage partner, who will simplify the lending process and help you secure the loan you need.


Focus On Your Best Options

Now that we know more about you and what you're looking for, we'll send you notifications for listings that match your specific criteria. If you see something you like, just let us know, and we can proceed to the next step.


See Them For Yourself

This is where things get exciting. We'll schedule and take you on tours of the homes you select. We'll also discuss with you the benefits of each option and make sure the homes fit within your specific budget.


Make An Offer

When you find the perfect home, we'll present the seller with a formal written offer. We'll also advise you on how to best handle any of the seller's counteroffers, and negotiate on your behalf until your offer is accepted.


Check It Twice

We want to make sure the purchase you’re about to make is a smart one. We'll guide you though the appraisal and inspection process to verify the price matches to condition of the home and to ensure that everything in the home functions properly.


It's Closing Time

This part of the process involves reviewing all the paperwork and signing your name to all the documents. We'll be there with you at the closing table to answer any questions you might have. Once you complete this step the home is yours.


Get The Keys & Celebrate!

Now that you've signed all the paperwork, it’s time to move in! We'll make sure you get your keys so you can begin planning your move right away. But first, take a moment to celebrate - you deserve it!


Share With Friends & Family

Be sure to share your positive experience with friends and family. When they're ready to buy or sell a home, we'll be there for them, just like we were for you.

What Clients Are Saying About Us

"Sharon is absolutely outstanding in all aspects of residential real estate based on our experience.  And, she is a nice person.  We were new to Chicagoland and Sharon guided us expertly in every step from the initial house hunt to location to property selection to offer to close and  after support.   Incredible knowledge of everything.  Her calm, methodical demeanor is very helpful at a very stressful time. No surprises.  We consider her family.  Her character is beyond reproach."

"Sharon was recommended to us by my father, from another state.  We were very pleased with Sharon's willingness to work with us, as we were looking to move to the suburbs from Chicago.  She was very kind and flexible.  She accommodated us in her office with our new baby.  Sharon listened to our  requests and helped us to find the home that best suited our needs and growing family.  I would highly recommend Sharon.  She is very knowledgable of the real estate market and general information in regards to the areas we were seeking residency."
