Why We Created Fearless Homebuyer
Before I bought my first home, I used to dream about it constantly. I’d walk through neighborhoods of nice, simple houses near our apartment and just imagine owning one of them. We could paint it and fix it up and know that it was really ours.
When we were finally ready to buy, we started by driving around looking at houses. We didn’t have a clue that what we really needed was a basic education first. We didn’t know what we didn’t know! We made a lot of mistakes buying that first home that could have been avoided with some simple lessons beforehand. So, when I became a Real Estate Agent, I made sure that none of my clients made the classic mistakes that I had.
Over the next twelve years as a Buyer’s Agent, I helped hundreds of home buyers through the process. I built my business by creating trust with my clients through educating them and focusing on finding the best solution for their needs. This is the foundation for building a business by referral, which I believe is the strongest and most effective method of advertising. I also taught first-time home buyer classes for many years at the local community college and still do. There, I discovered that my passion for teaching was just as strong as it was for real estate. Naturally, Fearless Homebuyer was born out of these 3 passions; real estate, business by referral, and education.
That is how this all began. I realized that there were a lot more people out there just like I was…. renting a place while dreaming of owning a home that was really their own. We hope you find the Fearless Homebuyer website extremely helpful.
