What I Expect of You  

My showing you homes that are too expensive will ultimately lead to frustration and it's a waste of your, my, and the sellers' time.

Contact a Lender or if you don't know one, call me for a list of local, reputable people who can tell you what you and I need to know before we start the home search/purchase process.

Tell me about it.

For example, if you have bad knees let me know so we can restrict our search to homes without a lot of stairs…or if you have 4 children under the age of 10, let me know so we can look at homes with lots of bedrooms and a big yard.

Is this a marathon search to be completed within 2 days? or do we have 2 months to explore what's available? Obviously, my approach to serving you will be greatly affected by your timing.

I will be doing a lot of legwork and providing you with a lot of information and advice.

Ultimately…whether it's 2 days, 2 months or 2 years after we meet…you must be prepared to make a offer.

Never has the saying "He who hesitates is lost" been more appropriate than in Real Estate, especially if the market is hot.

Tell me how you feel . Tell me if your situation has changed. Tell me!!! Although it does seem to be a big part of my job, I AM NOT A MIND READER. I AM good at helping you get what you need if you keep the communication channel open.

When I ask, please answer…When I call, call me back.


What You Can Expect From Me

My cell phone is on 7 days a week. When you call, I'll be there or if you leave a message I WILL call you back.

I will share what I know regarding the Local market, Available properties, Investment strategy, Negotiation tactics, Purchase and Sale Agreements, Real Estate Law, Financing, Inspections, Escrow, Moving…and staying sane throughout the process.

Your search parameters will be entered via my computer into the Multiple Listing Service and into my personal networking system so that new listings which fit your needs will be presented immediately.

You will find the best value in the price range and area that you are considering…hopefully BEFORE anyone else who is looking for the same thing. New listings can be Phoned, Emailed, faxed or mailed to you.

I am loyal and act only in your best interests, keeping all information confidential. I give advice but act only on your direction.

I practice the National Realtor Board's Code of Ethics and have earned the respect of my peers. Referrals are available at any time.

If you doubt my integrity at this point please DO NOT call or email Dawn Durand.

I will not quit until you find what you need…and even after you've found it, I'll still be there to answer questions and to service your future Real Estate needs.
