Get Pre-Qualified for Viewings

This is a vital first step in the home buying process. The majority of luxury homes in the area require proof of funds before viewings. This letter shows the seller you are a legitimate buyer entering their private property with the means to buy should you decide to move forward. 

Your financial institution or lender can easily provide you with this letter that will grant you access to all the amazing opportunities in your price range.

Let's Find Your Perfect Home

Here is the fun part!  We'll schedule private tours of the homes you've loved from your personalized property alerts, searches, and Raquel's off-market database. If time is a constraint or you live out of town, Raquel will screen your favorite homes on your behalf. She will provide you with comprehensive video footage and key insights on the overall area, noise levels, quality of finishes, architecture, and views. She will see the property as if through your eyes and point out the things she knows are important to you.

Offer & Acceptance

When you're ready, Raquel will work closely with you to present a competitive offer on your behalf and begin negotiations. This process is often stressful and uncertain for the buyer, but you can rest assured that Raquel is a seasoned negotiator and will do her best to bring the parties together. Once mutual acceptance is reached, you can open escrow, and the countdown to your new home begins!

Appraisal & Inspection

Once you open escrow, the home will go through an appraisal and inspection period. The appraisal guarantees the price matches the property's value, while the inspection focuses on the home's condition and makes sure everything is functioning properly with no major issues.
