Frequently Asked Questions

How will you tell me about the newest homes available?
The Multiple Listing Service Website provides up-to-date information for nearly every home on the market. I constantly check the New on Market list and will send you the latest listings via email at a frequency that’s most helpful for you, daily or in real time.

Will you inform me of homes from all San Francisco real estate companies or only Keller Williams Realty?
I will keep you informed of all homes that come available, including off-market deals, to help you find your ideal home.

Can you help me find new construction homes?
Yes, I have access to all the new construction opportunities in the city and can get you the information you need to make a decision. I will accompany you on your first visit with the builder. By using my services with a new construction home purchase, you will receive the services I offer, as well as those provided by the builder, at no additional cost.

How does For Sale By Owner (FSBO) work?
Homeowners trying to sell their home without agent representation are usually doing so in the hopes of saving the commission. If you see a FSBO and want the advantages of my services, let me contact the owner for you and make an appointment. Often, the homeowner will work with an agent, even though their home is not listed since the agent is introducing a potential buyer to their property. While you may get a deal buying directly from the seller, if they are not a licensed agent, it may be a challenging experience.

Can we go back through our property again once an offer is made but before possession?
You should complete all of your inspections and walk-throughs before removing any contingencies. If you need to see the property again for any reason, we can make a special request to the seller for access. They often allow it, but they are not required to do so. Just prior to closing, we will schedule a final walk-through and inspection of your new home.

What happens after close of escrow?
You can celebrate and shift your focus to moving into your new home. You will want to schedule your move, pack items and notify businesses of your address change. I can provide you with a moving checklist to help you remember all the details.
