I Will Never Buy Or Sell Another House Without You!
"Wina went above and beyond from the moment I met her until after our escrow closed. She could not have been more professional, courteous, knowledgeable, hard-working or pleasant. Before we started working with Wina, I didn't think we needed a real estate agent to look for a home. I know for a fact we wouldn't have closed the escrow for the home we purchased unless we had Wina on our side. She went the extra mile at every turn. Thank you Wina, I will never buy or sell another house without you!"
- Suzanne Abraham
I highly recommend this group!
“I worked with Wina and she was nothing short of absolutely amazing! She supported me in really thinking through exactly what I wanted in my home, took me to see many properties, and helped me work seamlessly with my mortgage broker. She was always so calm and so nice, but I also know how hard she worked for me -she’s never willing to settle and let you get less than what you really deserve! When I was straightforward and honest, I very much enjoyed working with her. The whole team in her office is also amazing. Several people supported me and I received several follow up phone calls to make sure everything was going well as I moved into my new home.”

How To Write An Offer
After we locate a property to purchase, we 1st determine market value by comparing similar homes that have sold and that are for sale.
After determining an offer price, we prepare the written offer and present it to the seller.
We negotiate the offer until an agreement is made between the buyer and seller.
Once the offer is accepted, we open escrow and send the good faith deposit to the title / escrow company.
When Do We Notify The Lender?
After an agreement is made, we will send a copy of the contract to the lender.
The lender enters the information i.e. purchase price, length of escrow and down payment into their system and calendars all deadlines.
The appraisal is ordered.
A cost break down is given to you by the lender. This will give you the approximate monthly payment and amount of money that is needed to be brought in at the closing.
When Do We Order Inspections?
Every offer to purchase has an inspection period.
This inspection period provides you with an opportunity to perform a whole house inspection, termite inspection and any other inspections that you deem appropriate.
We will order all of the desired inspections for you.
We will provide you with copies of all seller disclosures to review.
