As our client, we advise you continuously as to current market conditions in order to help you to determine and maintain a competitive and informed negotiating position.
We perform a thorough search for suitable properties, both on and off the market. Our membership in the Santa Barbara Multiple Listing Service opens our clients to a wide variety of listed properties, while the personal relationships that we have cultivated with other agents over the years brings us many of the best offerings before they reach the open market.
We or a designated agent will accompany you on all property visits.
Where financing is needed, we shop for competitive rates and refer to the most reliable lending institutions in our area. We assist in obtaining pre-approvals so that your offer can be presented in the strongest possible terms.
We advise you in preparing offers and in the give-and-take merits of each negotiating point.
We oversee all inspections, escrow and title functions, and appraisals. We meet with and provide supporting data to appraisers.
We review all disclosures provided by the Seller, and investigate questionable items to the best of our professional ability.
We recommend any professional services that we do not provide. We do not accept compensation from any service providers we recommend.
We calculate accurate expenses and your net costs.
We are always available after escrow closes to assist with questions or problems should they arise.
At all times, we act only as your Single Agent, and never as Dual Agent. If the Seller of the property you purchase is not represented by a real estate broker, then the Seller will acknowledge those facts in writing.
