Thinking of buying a house or condo?
Let me help you every step of the way. When buying a house (or condo), you are faced with a multitude of decisions! The primary one is whether you are actually prepared to purchase a home. Locating the perfect home is not always an easy task, and obtaining a mortgage loan can be a complex and tiring process. Although, once you have determined that you are ready to move forward with the required effort towards your home-purchasing goal, the rewards are unquestionable.
While at your side each step of the way, I will make the process of buying a house or condo easier, more enjoyable, less time-consuming, and less expensive than if you undertook this challenge on your own. I will help you prepare so that sellers perceive you as a preferred buyer, help you locate and assess properties for sale that match your specifications, and help you through the myriad of details attending the actual purchase.
I am always familiar with the current homes on the market, and I know neighborhood values well, so I can help you determine which properties are fairly-priced and in good condition before you start your search.

Here are some of the most common questions Home-Buyers have:
Q: Whats the best way to FIND a house in Winnipeg? Go to Open Houses? Looking thru real estate magazines? Search individual agents websites?
A: Magazines are often published once a month, or perhaps once a week. By the time a listing makes it into print, it’s most often already sold or accepting offers. Open Houses can be very hectic, and you end up ‘rubbing elbows’ with lots of other visitors. The Best Way? When buying a house, work with one REALTOR® who can show you ALL the listings. Someone like, say, me for example. Watch this video.
Q: Why should I work with a REALTOR®. I can find the houses on my own!
A: FINDING them is just a small part of what real estate agents can do for you. Once you find a nice house, I can help you evaluate it, offer advice on how to structure your offer to make it more acceptable (thereby winning any possible bidding war), and I can even help you get pre-approved by a great lender. Please watch this video.
Q: My checking account is with a bank. Can’t I just go there to be pre-approved?
A: In this fast market, every buyer knows that pre-approval is required, so EVERY buyer already does that. It’s no longer sufficient just to be pre-approved, its actually more important to be pre-approved by the RIGHT lender. To find out HOW you do that, watch this video.
