A buyer's best friend! Working with first time homebuyers, investors, and relocations. Special downpayment assistance program loans for all. I help you buy REOS/Bank Owned, Short Sales & Regular prope
WHEN YOU'RE READY TO BUY-CALL SHY!
Why use Shy? I like helping buyers! I specialize in 1st time homebuyers! I'm an ex fixer/flipper...having bought many properties to buy and hold and rent out or buy, fix, and flip. I've been on both sides of the coin as a buyer and as a seller myself. I enjoy helping both sides. I help tons of buyers...BUY! I seem to help alot of buyers buy BANK OWNED HOMES otherwise known as REOS! There is a technique and a way to get your offers accepted, if you do not work with the right agent who knows these techniques, you could have your offer in jeopardy and lose out when it comes to multiple offers and bidding wars! I know about tons of loan programs available and what the criteria is to partipate in these programs when we make offers on homes. I won't waste your time on making offers that do not qualify for FHA or VA guidelines.I help many people in the military buy and sell homes with VA loans, and many buyers that do not have 20% down for a conventional loan..that need to buy using an FHA loan (3.5%) down. I have teacher's loans (CalStrs) that allow you to buy with 3% down and public employee loans. I have helped many buyers buy using the DOWN PAYMENT ASSISTANCE programs, if you do not have the money saved up to buy with 3.5% down. I find you a home usually within the first 10 showings 98% of the time...We rarely have to go over the 10 showing limit. When you communicate with me what you want, and we have already been pre approved..which I can get done for you in less than 24 hours with my lender, the home buying process becomes easy.
SHY'S AREAS OF EXPERTISE!
I like working with "PROPERTY VIRGINS" aka "FIRST TIME HOMEBUYERS"....I like finding a home that fits their needs and making them happy! I've also worked with alot of "INVESTORS"...this is much more challenging because they are on the quest for the "HOLY GRAIL" of properties- the PERFECT PROPERTY at a ROCK BOTTOM PRICE!...but, if you have patience, they can be loyal companions for years to come. I like working with singles, women, minorities and seniors...anyone whose seen as an underdog, I especially like making it happen for them...because society is constantly changing...no longer are we the culture with the happy husband and wife and the 2.5 kids, and white picket fence...our society in LA is changing.
Most of all I like selling properties...that's the fun time...I'm a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist...making sure pics are breathtaking and paying attention to every detail and blasting that property into oblivion with the most innovative promo and marketing plan available to sell, sell, sell! I'm also a Property Marketing Expert...knowing how and what to do to SELL that property! I belong to the Redondo Beach Chamber of Commerce, Hermosa Beach Kiwanis and many women's networking organizations. I work with the police departments in the "keeping our neighborhoods safe" program.
SHY'S " HAPPY CUSTOMERS" CLUB!
Shy, thank you soooooooooooooo much for taking the patience to work with me in my first investment property...many more to come! Lin Kuang
Shy...you helped me find that "Hot Property" I was looking for...you're a godsend!...Bless you! Michael Stevens
Shy...thank you for helping me in my search...you took the time to find the right home for me and never once complained...you explained things to me in detail and didn't make me feel stupid! You even took my frantic late nite calls..wow! I'm sold!..Veronica Diaz
Hi Shy!!! When I came to you...I didn't know if you could help me or not, since I am from Tanzania! You took me aside, got me to do my homework first and got me pre approved with your lender, and then we went shopping and found my dream home on the 6th house we looked at....you held my hand every step of the way and I am forever grateful...You did not treat me like I was stupid when I asked you a million questions...you answered every one of them.
