Buyer Services


Buying a home is an exciting and complex adventure. It can also be a very time-consuming and costly one if you're not familiar with all aspects of the process, and don't have all the best information and resources at hand.

Getting to know your needs and goals, coupled with timely communication is the key to any healthy business relationship. My comprehensive local knowledge and high-quality services can save you time and money, as well as make the experience more enjoyable and less stressful.  In today's competitive market, I know what it takes to get the offer accepted and the deal closed. 

If you're like most people, buying a home is the biggest investment you will ever make. So whether you're buying a starter home, your dream home or an investment property, a downsize, or an upsize, take advantage of my experience as a local market expert for the West Kootenays to make the most informed decisions every step of the way.



There are a number of people involved in the buying process – it’s more than just the Seller, the Buyer, and their agents! You’ll also want to make sure you have trusted professionals that include a mortgage broker, inspector, and a lawyer/notary. (to start!) It’s my job to make sure that you have a solid support team and are in touch with the right professionals.


Finances, Exemptions, Closing

One of the most important steps to take first when buying a home is to get pre-approved so you know exactly how much you can afford and whether you’ll be comfortable with the mortgage payment.  There are many different factors that a lender looks at to determine your affordability – such as credit, salary vs. self-employed, and how long you’ve been at your current position.



I have systems in place to help you find properties easily & quickly. Realtor MLS search functions have more detailed and full information – which I provide for you through auto notifications straight to your email!

I always stay up to date and provide you with information on sales activity so that you have an idea of what is going on in the market that you’re interested in, and set an expectation on how much you may have to pay for a property.

Fiduciary Duty

Your Best Interests First

Having a realtor represent you on the buying side of a real estate transactions ensures that you have someone working for your best interest. The listing agent is working for the seller – not you – and in what is probably the largest purchase you’ve ever made, you’ll want to know that you’re best interests are put first. With my fiduciary duty as a Realtor®, I will keep you protected as I'm dedicated to you and no one else.
