When it comes to real estate, experience matters. A real estate agent in Chevy Chase with less experience is more likely to miss deals, have difficulty meeting clients’ needs, and not achieve the pricing targets that clients have in mind. In short, the experience a real estate agent has can make the difference between a pleasant transaction and a bad one. Read more information.
Serving Montgomery, Frederick, Howard, and Carroll counties, Darin takes pride in knowing local laws, regulations, and rules to ensure that every deal closes without issues. As a former mortgage loan officer, Darin knows how to assist in obtaining financing for properties. This knowledge is invaluable as financing is frequently one of the most complex parts of buying a home. Having a realtor that you can trust explain what options you have is essential for getting the perfect financing.
As both a buyer’s agent and a seller’s agent, Darin provides different expertise to each set of clients.
Chevy Chase Buyer’s Agent Experience
If you are looking to purchase a home in Montgomery, Frederick, Howard, or Carroll county, you should obtain the services of a trustworthy, experienced buyer’s agent. Even before you start your home search, you should contact a real estate agent Chevy Chase to make sure that you have as smooth of a purchase process as possible.
As a buyer’s agent, I perform multiple services for clients. The first step of the home buying process is the “vision.” What type of home are you looking to buy? How many bedrooms does it have? Is it near a top-rated school? These types of questions are critical to answer before you start physically looking at properties. As someone with extensive experience in these four counties, I know where to find the best real properties that match your criteria.
Next, we take a look at various homes. As your agent, I have a fiduciary duty to get you the best deal. If you like a property, I can get you answers to your questions and negotiate an offer. I will also advise you on what price you should offer. Experience matters here. Newer agents might suggest offering too much money, or they might not let you know about the pitfalls of a fixer-upper. Since I’ve been doing this for many years, I’ll negotiate the best price for you and help you avoid issues that other agents might encounter.
Once you have an offer accepted, I can help ensure that the process continues to completion. Many first-time buyers are unaware that an accepted offer doesn’t always mean the purchase will go through. Problems with financing, home inspection reports that have issues, and low appraisals can all cause headaches for buyers. I can help you navigate all these issues. Since many buyers face difficulties with financing, my experience as a mortgage loan officer frequently comes in handy. I can work with you to secure the mortgage you need.
Of course, once you close on the property, I will hand you the keys so you can enjoy your new home! It’s always a great feeling to see the excitement on buyers’ faces when they walk through the door to their new home for the very first time!
Chevy Chase Seller’s Agent Experience
Sellers need to use the very best agents to ensure that they are getting top dollar for their homes. As a seller’s agent, I have a fiduciary duty to do everything I can to make you the most money from the sale.
I’ll market and list your home, represent you with buyers’ agents, and negotiate to ensure that you receive the best offer for your home. I will also give you an estimate of your home’s value to ensure it’s priced to move in this market.
You need someone who knows the Montgomery, Frederick, Howard, or Carroll county areas well and will be able to list your home in a way that entices buyers. The experience I have successfully selling homes for ten years has given me the leverage I need to close deals fast at the best price.
Once you have an offer that you like, I’ll work to make sure it closes. Frequently, I’ll have to keep in contact with the buyer’s agent to make sure the financing process is moving along smoothly. I’ll make sure they do appraisals and home inspections if they so desire. Once everything looks good, I can also attend the final walkthrough to make sure surprises don’t arise. Being a seller’s agent isn’t as simple as showing the house and being done – good seller’s agents work after the offer to ensure the deal closes.
