Definitive Guide to First Time Home Buying in Georgia

No matter the year, type of market, or current interest rates, people will always be in the market to buy and sell a home, and first-time home buyers make up a big chunk of those out looking for a new home. Whether it be in Gwinnett looking in Buford, Suwanee, Dacula, and Lawrenceville or Jackson County buying in Hoschton or Jefferson.  From Athens to Oconee buying in Watkinsville, Bogart, or Bishop, GA, first-time home buyers often don’t know where to begin or what to expect in the home buying process. 

Let me be a resource early in the process.  It’s a huge purchase and an emotionally and financially charged transaction. Let me offer you my knowledge, answer your questions, and provide as much information as possible. Even if you are early in the buying process, the information will be invaluable because it comes from an insider in the local real estate market who knows the market like nobody else. 

Let's have a first-time Buyer meeting!

Many first-time buyers “don’t know what they don’t know.” Let me start by offering to sit down and tell you what to expect and what you need to be aware of, and providing a comfortable setting to get your questions answered. Let's break down the home buying process in our local community. We can lay it out for in a one-hour, in-person meeting at one of my offices or have coffee somewhere convenient to you!


Let me be clear that I will do this as a service with no obligation and that I hope that if you decide to purchase a home, you will consider me to be your trusted advisor. It costs you nothing! The Seller pays all real estate commissions, but I represent you and seek to work in your best interests!

Let me be clear that simply because we both agree to meet, neither of us is committed to working together. I never like for anyone to feel obligated or 'captured' if the relationship didn't feel like a fit!

Things I want to know are questions such as, "How long have you been looking?” or “Are you just starting out in the process?” 

Please know that I serve as a resource, a guide through a potentially stressful process. My goal is to take the stress out of the process on finding the right home, obtaining financing, inspections, and getting to closing! 

Finally, if you feel the relationship isn’t working out for any reason, you can stop working with me at no cost to you. I will warn you though, I have always been so responsive to my clients needs that I haven't had anyone stop working with me on a purchase yet because of a lack of service and responsiveness on my part! 

Making the home-buying process easy is my goal. Nothing is worse for the buyer than having to do double the work because their agent is either not sending them comprehensive information, being responsive to their needs or their means of disseminating information is inefficient.

My goal is to know you as a Buyer and to deliver to you an experience you deserve!

A good agent who’s willing to be patient and step in early in the process to serve as a resource will be rewarded in the end. I want to help you achieve your goals in order to earn one more 5 Star review from you as I earn your business every day!
