I Love Working with first -time home Buyer's

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Beachside

I found a niche of helping first-time home Buyers discover the joy of Home Ownership. Maybe it's because of my nurturing personality and my past careers as an educator. But, I gotta tell you working with buyers and closing deals has me singing happy tunes. When I first started my real estate career, I was told get listings, list to last, talk to sellers, blah, blah, blah. Only to discover that's a lot of work and was draining my checking book.

Then there was short sales......talk about discovering your inner potential......WOW, not to mention working with banks.  But I managed to get through the hype and work with a first-time buyer and his wife. Having patients was easy, holding their hand through the process no problem. Education and explaining the real estate process.....I'm your girl.

Now I see Buyer's are jumping off the fence this year and they are excited to purchase their first home. I share that enthusiasm and notice I'm a magnet for first-time buyers. I take pride in buyer's putting their trust in me and being loyal. It's a great business and worth the time and energy when the referrals come pouring in!

I have always had a lot of fun working with first time homebuyers. They are a pleasure to explain the process to.

It is so satisfying helping a first time home buyer achieve their goal of home ownership.  I truly think it's my favorite part of this profession.

I love handing first time home buyers the keys to their new home.  It is a wonderful feeling to see their eyes light up when they can physically feel they are home owners

Teachers rock! I'm a 17 year educator myself and love being a REALTOR today! First time buyers are always so much fun and full of optimism for thier first home. As with other educators turned agents, I'm sure you do an awesome job for your clients! :)

I like working with first time home buyers too...many of them are nervous Nellies, but they do their research. So it's best to guide through the maze and make a little more effort in reassuring them all the wya. This is where hand holding skills are paramount.
