Whether you are a first time buyer or an experienced veteran of the home buying process, buying a house can be a daunting task. There are many things to consider and manage, and for the process to go smoothly, you’ll need the help of a few good real estate professionals.
My team and I will assist you through the entire process of buying a house – from our initial conversation all the way to settlement.
How Much Home Can You Afford? The first step when buying a house is to find out how much you’ll be able to qualify for. You do this by speaking with a good and reputable mortgage loan officer. This step is crucial, so it is important to find a lender that you can trust. We work with several excellent local area mortgage lenders. If you need a recommendation – I can help with that.
What Do You Want In A Home? There are many factors to consider here: location, size, style of home, price, etc.. Make a wish list of features that are important to you. Knowing what you want upfront makes the search for a home a lot easier.
Touring Homes. Once you have a mortgage pre-approval and know what you are looking for, we can set up a time to go out and look at homes. For most people, this is the fun part! I’ll help you search for properties and set up showings to view those homes.
Make An Offer. Once you have found the right house for you, the next step is to make an offer to the seller. Again, working with a professional Realtor will really pay off here. My team and I are experienced negotiators that have solid local market knowledge. We will guide you through the paperwork and offer process.
Contract Accepted. Getting your offer accepted by the seller is really just the beginning. The ratification of the contract kicks off several more steps/processes that must be skillfully managed through to settlement. We will watch over the entire process, ensuring that your transaction is handled properly.
Settlement. Closing your transaction is the culmination of a lot of hard work by you and your real estate team. We look forward to working with you and helping you through the home buying process!

We wanted a house in a specific area and with both of us working it wasn’t easy to find the time to look. Michael was more than happy to work around our schedule and help search for houses that fit our wants and finances. We couldn’t have been happier with our home and with Michael.” – A. Holland
“We highly recommend Michael Pearson! From the onset, Michael understood our priorities and “must haves” in a home. After months of searching prior to meeting Michael, he was able to find our dream house in a week and a half. He is attentive and words cannot describe how lucky we were to work with him. He kept us informed and continues to follow up with us. He stands for integrity and transparency.

“Mike was a pleasure to work with. From the very beginning of this process, Mike was communicative, patient (we were not actively looking and sporadically reached out to him for 5 months), and willing to assist/meet whenever we needed him. When we finally found a property we were interested in, of course it was a short sale property with lots of strings attached and a frustrating timeline. Mike was fantastic.

“Michael was amazing with finding my family a home. I called a couple real estate agents and asked to look at houses over the weekend and it was just a couple days away. I was brushed off by them and when we asked Michael, he jumped on our request and got us in three houses right away. We saw several homes within our price range and landed a perfect home for us. Michael’s eagerness to help out and his willingness to call agents right away got us in many homes, in many neighborhoods. We found the home we liked and he called the listing agent right away and wouldn’t allow her to show the house anymore and made sure it was ours. Michael is friendly and very professional. We are happy we found him!” – T. Gonce

I’m one to ask a lot of questions, he answered all of them. He’s very knowledgeable about the selling & buying end which was great for us. I would tell anyone who is looking for a great agent to give him a call.” – H. O’Conner
