Walking the Walk

If you’ve met me in person I’ve likely told you the story about my first sale ever in real estate. With my license freshly in hand I went out and bought a home for myself as my first transaction. I remember how excited and scared I was in making the offer, negotiating, and signing the papers to close the deal. I remember waking up a couple days after moving in and how elated I was to own my own home!

Last week I refi’d to take advantage of the low rates and was reminded of what it’s like to go through a transaction personally. I had questions about different charges, I was nervous about the appraisal, I wanted to know when the money would show up and when the credits for pre-paids would come back to me.

I think that buying my home first made me more aware of the excitement and fears all buyers have when they are buying a home. Recently, going through a refi I was able to experience first hand again all the excitement of making money by owning property but also the fear that something might go wrong.

So if you’re thinking of buying or selling you know that I’m aware of how you’re feeling and I’m here to make the process go as smoothly as possible.
