Buyers

It’s a great time to buy a home in Houston – historically low interest rates make this a very attractive market for purchasing. Houston is the fourth largest city in the United States and is a city of unique and distinctive neighborhoods. There are many wonderful places to live in Houston (refer to my neighborhoods tab on my website)! As your buyer’s agent, I will guide you in your Houston home search from start to finish.

When I begin working with a new client who wants to buy a home in Houston, I like to set up a face-to-face meeting at my office at Compass. In this meeting, we will discuss your desired location, necessary ammenities (for example: number of bedrooms, baths, square footage, lot size) and budget/price range so I can become educated on your preferences.

Three generations of the Smith family. The Smiths just purchased this lovely home to be closer to their daughters, sons-in-law and grandchildren. It was a pleasure to be the Smith’s guide in their cross-country move. Thank you KBHS and KLHJ for this referral. It was a huge honor to help your parents. August 5, 2020

HAR 5-star review:

“This was our second home purchase with Mary Frances as our agent. Our needs were somewhat different as we were no longer first-time buyers and we were looking for a different type of home in a different neighborhood. However, Mary Frances’ expertise and care were top-notch just as before.”
-Adrian and Erin P., Happy New Homeowners, 3661 Ella Lee Lane

Our initial meeting will establish three important components to your home search:

1) Communication will be important in our relationship as buyer and agent. Together we will determine the best way to communicate – typically a combination of cell phone, email and text messages.

2) I will help you with the best way to search for new, reduced or established listings on a variety of websites and in printed materials. Also, I will notify you of many listings that are not yet on the market so you will have an inside track of which houses will be hitting the market in the upcoming days and weeks ahead.

3) A comprehensive plan for your purchase which includes educating you about various neighborhoods, identifying potential properties, viewing houses together, calculating an offer price and preparing an offer for your purchase, negotiating the offer to contract status, overseeing inspections, negotiating repairs, coordinate lender and title company details, guiding you to succesfully closing on your new home!

Purchasing a home is the largest investment you will make in your life. Let me be your guide when you make this significant purchase. I would love to help you find your home in Houston for many years or a lifetime!
