There are several hundred homes on the market in southern New Hampshire, and finding the one that’s perfect for you might seem daunting. As an agent who knows the properties, the market and the communities – from the school districts to the businesses to the neighborhoods – I can make the search a lot easier, and help ensure that you find your dream home.

Before you begin, you must know your financing ability. This is crucial to avoid the heartbreak of settling on a home that ultimately is not affordable. I can advise you on the process and put you in touch with a trusted mortgage lender from the start, who will offer you the best finance options available.

Location, Location, Location
Location can be the single biggest factor in your happiness. Spending less time in your car and more time where you live and work is a key factor in quality of life. And not only should your home be convenient to work, school, shopping and activities, it should also be part of a community you’ll love, in a great neighborhood. Sometimes the intangible qualities that give a place its character are the most important, and I can answer your questions and help you get a sense of each community’s personality.

The Right Home
Making a choice isn’t just about falling in love with a beautiful home. You also need a home that meets the needs of your family, structurally and functionally. One of the first questions I ask my clients is, how has your current home served your needs? We’ll discuss how your family is changing and identify your immediate and future needs, to find a home that’s the perfect fit. And if new construction is your goal, my 20 years’ experience with my own construction company can help you anticipate the timing, options and overall coordination of the many aspects of building your own home.

As a winner of the MLS Million Dollar Sales Award for many years, I know negotiations inside and out. From the initial offer to the counter-offer to the final agreement, I know how to use the process to your best advantage. I can also spot many potential issues in a home, which we can factor into an offer – rather than overlook and have to address once you’re the owner.

Buyer Brokerage
Your best interest will be represented by entering into a contract with your Buyer Broker. This relationship between agent and client offers confidentiality, loyalty and the promotion of your interests. As a fully licensed realtor and broker, I welcome the opportunity to represent you throughout the process of finding and buying your new home.
