CONGRATULATIONS! You have a BUYER! But…. Now WHAT!?
Contract to close transaction management:
There are so many little pieces that go into making a transaction successful. Experience is
everything. Sometimes we don’t know what we don’t know and when we don’t know, we
don’t know how it could have been better for us or how we could have headed off a
catastrophe that makes a deal fall through. Not to mention the stress!
With over 800 transactions under my belt and 15 years of experience as a
REALTOR® I’m here to help you navigate the next 45 days and ensure you have a successful
transaction. I keep track of the timeline, contract dates, lender, underwriter, title search,
scheduling septic and home inspections, appraisals and walk throughs. I am your Transaction
Manager. In addition to transaction management, I use my expertise and experience to answer
the following questions, so you don’t have to worry about it. Selling a home and organizing
your next move can be so stressful, let me take the stress away and let you concentrate on
moving your family to your next destination.
