Are you thinking about buying a home but don’t know where to start? Well first of all, you need an agent who is there to advise you, protect you and who has YOUR best interests at heart. We’ve worked with hundreds of buyers throughout the years, helping them to secure their dream home. There are so many aspects to purchasing a home: approvals, contingencies, deadlines - and if you’re not careful it can cost you thousands of dollars. Hi my name is Rebecca Brooks with Bay Area Local Real Estate. I've been selling - and living - in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 25 years. The decision to buy a home or investment property is an important life event and you need to be certain that you have a good advisor. Don’t forget - the seller has an agent who is representing them and their best interests – and you need to have one, too.

A good Buyer’s Agent is there to guide you through every phase of the transaction.... From the very first step of finding you that perfect home, all the way through the transaction,

and to a successful delivery of your keys. A Buyer’s Agent guides you through making an offer, and advises you on how to best position yourself and how to write a winning offer - even when there are competing buyers;

(which is typical for our hyper-active Bay Area real estate market). We make suggestions on what you should and shouldn’t be asking for, we talk about financing strategies, we evaluate the provided disclosures, counsel you on what inspections you should have, help negotiate if repairs are necessary, explain what costs are customary for the buyer to pay and what is customary for the seller to pay. We go over disclosures, contingencies, deadlines, and so much more. We share our local market knowledge, we recommend lenders and have a wide network of vendors, inspectors, and service providers. We are here to hold your hand and guide you through the entire process to ensure you make the right choice, and help you make wise decisions - so you don’t spend unnecessary money. We are here to be your support system and lifelong friend – even after we give you the keys to your new home.

It's a fast, complicated and competitive market out there,
