I work one-on one with my clients. You'll always interact with me.

I have a team of experts that I rely on for information, professional advice and guidance. 

My business proudly adheres to several ethics and industry guidelines.

I'm here FOR you. I will help you, and know I'm on your side the entire way. 

I do two primary things: Help people buy or sell a home. See how I do each below!

Buying a home


Buying a home


Here is a typical buyer's process my clients go through. Note that this is a generic outline and your situation may require some time or additional resources in between steps. That's when I'm at my best - when special concerns arise I LOVE working to find solutions for my clients.

  1. Talk about what you want to buy. A home, condo, chalet, cabin, or cave*, I'll help you prioritize and focus your search to the right homes for you. At this stage, you'll probably want a mortgage broker too - I'll can use my big referral network to find a resource that best fits your financial situation, or you may use whichever lender you would like.
  2. Home Search. I'll personally send you highly customized reports with homes available that meet your needs. I'll also show you the best ways to find homes in online searches. We'll schedule time to go look at those homes. If you like none, we keep looking. Once we find one, we move on to step three.
  3. Make the Offer. I'll craft your complete offer by writing your sales contract. I do this in conjunction with your financing source and your direction. I'll work to ensure that you understand your sales documents, and help you easily understand often confusing issues so you can make clear decisions.
  4. Manage your Transaction. I'll make sure you, your lender, your title company, and everyone else are kept abreast of the transaction from beginning to end. Your time and money and livelihood are at stake here - I do not take this responsibility lightly.
  5. Help you Move. Ok, I won't pick up boxes. I will make sure that you know your schools, utilities, neighborhood, parks, stores, and more. You'll have access to my referral network of movers, designers, rehabilitators, gardeners, and anyone else you need. 
  6. Hand You Keys. One of my favorite thing to do is hand over keys at the end of a transaction. You'll have worked hard for this home, and I'll celebrate with you!

* I help buy homes with potential rooms known as caves. I do not sell caves. :)

Selling a Home


Selling a Home


Selling a home is complicated and often overwhelming for a homeowner. I do it for a living though. My job is to make the process easier for you. This is how it usually works when I sell a home. 

  1. Market Planning your home includes price, product, promotion, and place. We will honestly discuss your home's total marketing strategy together. You know your home best, I know the market. I'll make sure you are completely informed about pricing and positioning strategy. You'll help me appreciate and value your home so I can highlight it's best features. I'll create a custom marketing plan for your home that will help your home sell strong.
  2. Home Prep - I'll consult with you on what steps your home needs to be market ready. Do you need to really install that smoke detector (yes) or repair that crack in the foundation (maybe)? I can help you figure out what to paint, move, discard, highlight, repair, or update - and connect you directly to people who specialize in those services if you need. 
  3. Hitting the Market - I swamp the market with all of my listings in the first 48 hours. In person, online, and through physical mail - your home will hit everyone who might be looking for your home. I have this down to a science and it's worked repeatedly for years. I'll coordinate showings with other Realtors, independent buyers, and open houses and insider brokers' tours if appropriate.
  4. Accepting your Offers - As offers arrive, I'll be your right-hand-man assisting your understanding of contracts, while you decide to accept or counter or reject the proposals. My clients make informed decisions and I carry them out on their behalf. 
  5. Managing your Transaction - I'll do everything to assist the transaction from arranging repair contractors on your behalf to ensuring your disclosures are completed appropriately. 
  6. Signing. I will come to your signing ceremony with your escrow officer. This is the last time we'll probably see each other in the transaction, but it's not the last you'll hear of me. I'll stay in contact as you move into your new home - and trust me I DO want to see your photos of updates and improvements to your home (including newborns and pets!)

I have a physical address I call my office. The truth is my office is everywhere. My laptop and phone are almost always on me and when not I'm rarely far away. And in those times my Principal Broker, Ernest Cooper, and I work in tandem together. As my client, you'll have the chance to work with him too - don't hesitate to contact him at 503-515-8426 or Ernest@CooperRealtyllc.net.
