Engage Your Bay Area Modern Agent

Engaging your Bay Area Modern real estate agent is the third step in the home buying process.

With Bay Area Modern, everything begins with listening to you. When you meet with us to discuss finding the perfect home, it is important to communicate your budget as well as your lifestyle, your hobbies, your likes and dislikes, your absolute "must haves" or "deal-breakers," and other important criteria such as schools and proximity to public transportation, shopping, businesses, or Bay Area healthcare providers. Using this information, we will use all of our resources to help you find a home and navigate the process from negotiations through closing.

Additionally, we also recognize that our client's needs and wants can change during the house-hunting process. For this reason, it is important to maintain open and honest communication so our efforts in locating properties for you are consistent with your current needs and objectives.

Finally, as you begin to preview homes with your Bay Area Modern real estate agent, be certain to point out the features that you like and dislike about particular homes. This timely and candid feedback will help us help you in your search for that perfect home in the Bay Area.

Once you've engaged your Bay Area Modern agent, its time for the next step in the home buying process: Previewing Homes & Neighborhoods in California's Bay Area.
