Dreaming and Start Owning!

When you contact Kathy, she will ask you several questions to get a good idea about where, what, when and how
you will get a house. This initial interview takes about 15 minutes. After that, she'll assist you with obtaining
financing (pre-qualification, determination of price range, product options), if needed; set you up to receive
automatic notices about homes becoming available that meet your criteria, schedule showings to fit your schedule,
research the market to negotiate the best deals for you, prepare and present all paperwork, ensure all deadlines
and requirements are complete, and even attend closing with you. She also keeps in contact with you to keep you
up to date. When you work with Kathy MacKenzie, you have your REALTOR for the entire transaction.   You won't be
bounced from one agent to the next as the transaction progresses. She's there for you from start to finish . . . and
Our Home Buyer Services are FREE to you!

As your Buyer's Agent, my services to you are FREE!  (The broker's fee is paid by the builder or listing broker.) Further,
you will never be charged a "transaction fee," a "finders fee," or any other type of fee that other firms are now charging
on top of their broker's commission!
How to Avoid 9 Common Buyer Traps BEFORE Buying a Home

Buying a home is a major investment no matter which way you look at it. But for many home buyers, it's an even
more expensive process than it needs to be because many fall prey to at least a few of many common and costly
mistakes which trap them into either paying too much for the home they want, or losing their dream home to
another buyer, or worse, buying the wrong home for their needs.

A systematized approach to the home buying process can help you steer clear of these common traps, allowing
you to not only cut costs, but also buy the home that's best
for you!

An industry report entitled, "Nine Buyer Traps and How to Avoid Them" discusses the 9 most common and costly
of these home buyer traps; how to identify them; and what you can do to avoid them.
