Buyers Agent for Madison and Lake Oconee homes - the Jeanne difference

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Lake Country 284620

Congratulations - you've decided to buy a home in the Madison or Lake Oconee area. You've probably spent hours scouring properties online. You've researched neighborhoods, checked out county tax records, perhaps even made a call or two or three to listing agents.


Stop. Wait. Before you take the next step, consider what comes next.  The path from "thinking about" buying property to "choosing" a property to "negotiating a contract and buying" a home has a lot of moving parts - and smart buyers want a local market expert by their side as an exclusive buyer's agent to help them get the most of what matters to them in the process.


That's where I come in.  My value proposition is simple - I use my local market knowledge plus decades of experience negotiating deals all over the world to help you reach your goals. I treat your home search the way I treated my own personal property search - I'm a research wonk, you see, because I do believe that knowledge is the key to understanding.


My job is easy - use the considerable skills I have at my disposal to help you understand the Madison and Lake Oconee area, to help you understand the latest market trends as they apply to the type of property you are seeking, to listen deeply to your needs and wants, and open up your minds to the property choices that suit you best.


You have the tough job - choosing the right one!


Once you've chosen your Madison or Lake Oconee home, we get busy negotiating a contract that best meets your needs - there are many things to consider in addition to price. We also will navigate the due diligence period together, including the home inspection process, where once again my negotiating skills will help you work through an amendment to the contract to address repairs we'll ask the seller to take care of. One more step before closing is the walk-through prior to heading over to the attorney's office to complete the purchase - usually uneventful, but occasionally my experience and common sense will be required to resolve last minute surprises.


You have a choice when you set out to purchase a Madison or Lake Oconee home - rely on your own skills and roll the dice with a call to a listing agent. Or choose to hire an local market expert like me. Its a no-brainer really - with a big investment on the line, why shouldn't you have an expert buyer's agent by your side?

We have visited Madison a few times now and have decided to retire there. Jeanne has been exceptional in working with us on our visits and answering what seems like a never ending stream of questions.

Just to let you know Jeanne, the sale of the business is going very well and we are getting pretty excited.

Thanks, Don - long before I left my original career behind and chose a career in real estate, I was smart enough to seek out great agents in the Chicago and Atlanta areas to help me with my real estate needs. Just continuing the tradition!
