The home buying journey can be personal and emotional. Ultimately, we’re here to guide you as you find the one that will bring you joy and contentment for years to come. You can count on us to tirelessly search for the property that’s right for your needs, while avoiding surprises and minimizing costs through smart negotiations.
From obtaining pre-approval to preparing for your closing day, this detailed guide lays out each step of the home buying process. Complete with worksheets, local lender referrals, insight on navigating negotiations, and detailed checklists, you’ll know exactly what to expect and when.
Even if you’re simply thinking about moving in the future, it’s wise to reach out early. We can discuss your needs on the phone, via Zoom, or get together for coffee.
After we chat, you’ll need to get squared away with financial pre-approval. We’ll start sending you potential properties to preview and schedule showings for the ones you’re interested in.
Find one you love? It’s time to put in an offer! We’ll walk you through terms and get a contract over to the seller. From there, we’ll engage in additional negotiations on your behalf, as needed.
At this point, you will have completed your loan application and received quotes for homeowners insurance.
We’ll also help you schedule the home inspection and prepare for closing.
With your offer accepted, final financing approval, and a completed inspection, it’s simply counting down the days until you close. There’s nothing we love more than giving you the keys to your new home.
Unless you plan to pay in cash, you need a lender team to approve you for a loan. We happen to know some great ones.

Hampton Roads is an incredible place to live whether you’re looking to buy in the luxury echelon or you’re in search of a home that’s simply your perfect match.
If you need the added vision, we can also help you understand how things work and what’s a deal-breaker versus what just needs a little TLC. We’re here to see our clients reach their goals and accomplish their dreams.
You are his priority and he shows it by answering any questions you might have at any time of day or night. We sent him houses we were interested in and he would be out that day to take pictures and check out the property. Karl is simply the best out there in every regard.
We appreciated their transparency, availability, and patience in the home buying process. As someone who works in client relations, I liked their service model and will gladly work with them again in our next purchase!
He communicated very well, and was always available to answer any questions that we had. My husband and I are very thankful that Karl was the one to guide us through this process! To anyone looking to buy in Hampton Roads, I would recommend Karl 100%!
Karl did an outstanding, professional [job]. He was able to successfully guide us in purchasing a new home in a well established neighborhood in Norfolk, Virginia. Karl’s real estate experience provided excellent negotiations between both purchaser and seller, which resulted in a successful purchase.
He was always available, quick to respond, and had the knowledge base we needed in order to make the best decision for our family. Highly recommend.
