A great home purchase is just around the corner. While every transaction is unique in its details, the process of going from building a strategy to closing the sale is optimized for exploring every channel available, bringing you the best value in your Silicon Valley home search.


Our knowledgeable team will be with you every step of the way. We’ll get you started off on the right foot with a winning strategy that carries you all the way through making an offer, entering escrow, and closing the sale–until the keys are placed in your hands.

We want to set you up for success in finding the perfect Silicon Valley home. Our strategy is driven by your satisfaction and our expertise. We’ll briefly talk about the steps that you need to take to be considered as a serious buyer, offering our expertise to answer all your home buying questions.

Buying a home begins with a pre-approval from a local lender. We’ll connect you with our network of brokers and loan agents, helping you find the best service and interest rate to finance your Silicon Valley home.

Using the details in your pre-approval letter, we’ll narrow down financial parameters to align with your new home wishlist. With full access to the MLS, we’ll put you in touch with a curated collection of listings that meet your criteria. We’ll be at your service throughout the home search process to show properties and answer your questions as they arise.

Once you’ve found the perfect place to call home, we really put our expertise to work as we negotiate a deal that brings the most value for both parties so that everyone walks away happy. There will be some back and forth and many time-sensitive decisions that need to be made. It’s our job to give you all the information that you need to act quickly, leveraging your strong positioning in the negotiation.

After your offer is accepted by the seller, there is plenty more to do before we get to closing. While you’ll have some more time to think during this stage, we’ll be taking a close look at home inspection reports, bank appraisals, and a variety of lender-specific requirements to ensure that everything is in good shape before your closing date.

Closing the sale is the final step of our journey together. You’ll sign all the paperwork to make your home purchase final, pay closing costs, and get the keys to your new home. We’ll celebrate your new milestone with you as you snap photos and do a little happy dance.
