Buyers

Buying a home can be an overwhelming process. From financing to negotiating to closing, there are a lot of moving pieces that can leave homebuyers bewildered.

I will help guide you through each step of the buying process, offering sound advice along the way. By working with a professional agent who knows the ins and outs of the real estate industry, you’ll not only end up with a great home, but you’ll also walk away with a great experience.

Here are some of the key areas that I help you with:

Getting pre-approved by a lender

Before you begin to shop for a property, enhance your buying power by getting Pre-Approved or Pre-Qualified.  It’s probably the best advantage you can give yourself as a buyer. By providing me with some basic information about your income, savings, and debt, I can assist you in getting pre-approved by a reputable lender. The lender will then go over your financing options, what monthly payment amount you can afford, and what you can expect for down payment requirements and closing costs.

Choosing a home

For most buyers, choosing a home is an emotional process. I can assist you in this process by offering objective information about each property you look at. From local community information like schools and zoning to home-specific details like condition and amenities, will help you find exactly what you’re looking for.

Making an offer

Once you’ve found the home of your dreams, I will research recent comparable sales of similar homes in the area to help determine a fair selling price. Based on those comparable sales, as well as other factors like inspections and repairs, I will then help you structure an offer and negotiate to get the very best deal possible.

Closing

Closing, or settlement, can be a complicated process. In some areas, the escrow or title company handles the closing process, while in other areas an attorney handles it. Regardless of where you’re buying, I will help ensure that everything goes smoothly.

Testimonials

Not knowing much about Middle Tennessee area I was happy when my family first met Dionne. She was very helpful letting us know which area was best for us to live. She did a great job working with us and we are very happy with our home. – Ricky N.

Dionne was great at finding the home of my dreams. I’m a first time home buyer so I was very nervous about the process but Dionne explained everything very thoroughly. After not getting my offer accepted the first few times around I became very discouraged but Dionne kept me motivated. Dionne was great during the negotiation process and made sure that she advocated for me fully. I highly recommend Dionne, I have already told many of my friends who are thinking of buying a home to contact her! -Brittany J
