Find Your Next Home


Purchasing a property is most often the biggest financial decision you will ever make. Whether this is your first purchase or you are an experienced buyer, this decision must be made carefully.

The Buying Process

Get Pre-Approved

The initial step starts by being Introduced to a qualified lender to help assess your financial capacity to comfortably buy a home.

Home Search

I will search for homes in the Kansas area on your behalf. When we find a home that interests you, I will happily schedule a showing tour for you to view the property in person.

Make an Offer

When you’re prepared to proceed with your purchase, I’ll collaborate with you to craft the most compelling offer. This includes negotiations on the purchase price, closing date, sale conditions, and any unique terms specific to your needs. I’ll also handle all the documents on your behalf. Following the offer submission, the seller may choose to accept, reject, or propose counteroffers. If a counteroffer is made, I will assist in all negotiations and work towards creating a deal that is best for you.

Under Contract

Upon acceptance of your offer, you’ll enter a binding contract. While the purchase is not finalized until closing, the property is reserved exclusively for you during this period and cannot be sold to anyone else.

Home Inspection

We would work with qualified home inspectors to examine the physical state of your prospective home, which is crucial when buying a house to avoid unexpected safety issues or hidden defects. You’ll receive a report on the condition of the home, such as pests, structural defects, mold, and more. If problems are uncovered, further negotiations might be needed to address them, based on the inspection results and purchase agreement.

Home Appraisal

Your lender will order a home appraisal by an impartial third-party company. This appraisal ensures you’re not overpaying for your home. If the appraisal values the home lower than expected, we can discuss amending the purchase agreement or canceling the contract.

Final Walkthrough

Before the closing, we’ll perform a last inspection of the home to verify that all agreed-upon repairs are finished and that the home remains in its original or improved condition from when the initial offer was made. This serves as your final chance to identify any issues with the property before the closing.


Let’s celebrate! Your lender will furnish a last closing disclosure that outlines the loan terms, monthly payments, taxes, and closing expenses for your review. After obtaining clearance for closing, all involved parties will sign the purchase documents and loan agreement. When all parties have signed the paperwork and your loan is funded, you’ll receive the keys to your new home, marking the official move-in date!
