Getting Started

Finding your dream homeWelcome to my website! Congratulations on your decision to either buy or sell a home, or if you are still in the research phase then I hope you find this page very helpful. For most of us the purchase of a new home is the most expensive transaction we will ever make in our lifetime. Knowing that fact means it is very important to make sure that you feel fully confident and informed on the buying and selling process. Even if you have bought or sold a home before most likely the process has changed since the last time you made a purchase which is why it is so important to have a real estate professional help you through the transaction.

This page is your central hub to help you get started. Until you feel total comfortable with that decision please feel free to look through my site to help you learn about the process. Whether you are planning to buy or sell a home you should find useful information below to help you learn as much as you can about the process. Once you feel comfortable and confident that buying or selling a home is the correct decision for you please feel free to reach out to me by calling/texting me at 314-775-0453 or using my contact page to send me an email.

As you scroll down the page you will also see links for helpful services that you might need during your real estate transaction. To be upfront and honest (and to comply with rules and regulations), I am not being compensated in any way for linking to these service providers. I have experience using each and every one of these services. The one thing that I do want to point out though is that Regency Title does have an affiliate relationship with my brokerage (Keller Williams Southwest), but I do not benefit financially in any way due to this relationship.
