Why Buy with Jennifer Halm

Jennifer Knows the Market

As a buyer, you have access to more information today than ever before - and I'm glad you do. There are hundreds of thousands of Internet sites devoted to real estate, and I hope you'll find my website is the best resource for the Washington Metropolitan area. There's no shortage of commentary from national and local press, and family, friends and co-workers all have their perspective on the market. The amount of information at your disposal is healthy - and overwhelming.

In my decades as a Realtor, I have learned that information and knowledge are NOT the same thing. I know this market. It is my job - as your advocate - to assist you in sifting through the information, advise you on what's right, what may be misleading or inaccurate.  The reality is that there's a lot more to a successful transaction than finding a home on the net, and I am the best at what I do: transforming information into knowledge to help you make the right decision. 


Jennifer will:

Help You Clarify Your Wants and Needs
The clearer you are about goals, the more like you are to find the "right" house. I'll make sure you don't miss out on a great opportunity or find you've missed something important in the process. It's as much about "why" as it is "what."

Lead the Home Search
Keep an eye on my website, and I'll help you lay out a strategy designed to find your home in the least amount of time and effort from you. Homes that may look great online may be quite different upon inspection. I'll help you separate the great from the not-so-great.

Help with Financing
I know the best local and national lenders, ones with a proven track record of delivering on their promises. This is a time of significant change in the mortgage industry and picking the right lender with the right program for you is critically important.

Prepare and Negotiate Purchase Agreements
Where you begin a negotiation has a lot to do with where you finish. After preparing a thorough market analysis and evaluation of comparable properties, I will help prepare a well-structured offer to purchase that works for the best possible combination of price and contract terms for you.

Oversee the Process from Contract to Closing
It is almost impossible to overestimate the complexity of the purchase process. It is my job to oversee all of the deadlines and inspections which must take place based on the contract. It is my objective to see that everything is taken care of as early as possible, since your availability to comply with requests and requirements may be diminished as the settlement date approaches.

Help Solve and Avoid Problems
While it is an agent's role to work to solve any problems that arise during the transaction, it is my experience which allows me to anticipate and minimize the impact of "surprises."
