Our 8 Step Buying Process:

Purchasing a home is one the biggest financial investments you are ever likely to make. When you undertake this exciting and daunting process, you want to know that you are working with an honest, experienced agent who has a track record of successful real estate transactions. Dawn has been helping families find homes for more than twenty-five years. She will handle the complexities of a home purchase so that you can focus on what’s important.

This website has been designed with buyers in mind. Browse dozens of Cypress homes for sale on the MLS. Use our advanced search filters to narrow results down to the properties that are of greatest interest to you. Our Mortgage Calculator Tool will help you determine how much house you can afford.

Our community guides are a great resource for buyers who are coming from out of town. Each guide contains important information about the community, popular housing types, and local amenities. Learn more about specific master-planned neighborhoods like Fairfield, Cypress Creek Lakes or Bridgeland, or discover more about larger regions in the Greater Houston area such as Cypress or Hockley.

We pride ourselves on offering our buyers a great home buying process. We will help you:

Meet in person and create a wishlist

Let’s get to know each other! Once you’re ready to work with our team, we’ll meet together for a buyer consultation to focus your search and determine what you want and need in a home.

Pre-qualification

We’ll introduce you to our mortgage partner, who can help you determine your buying price range with confidence. Be prepared to dig into paperwork during this part of the process such as pay stubs, W2’s, and tax returns. The lender will do a full review and then tell you what you will be able to borrow in order to purchase a home. This is a vital step in the home buying process!

Listing alerts sent to you based on your criteria

Our agents get to know you — Need to move for a job? Want a shorter commute? Getting married? Having a baby? Need to upgrade or downsize? At this stage in the process, we’ll send you notifications about the listings that you’re most likely to be excited about. Be sure to let us know if one (or more) jumps out at you so that we can skip to the next step and schedule a viewing and tour promising properties. We'll be there for you every step of the way.

Schedule viewings and attend open houses

Here’s where the buying process gets really fun! We’ll go to local open houses together and schedule viewings of the homes that you’ve loved from our listing alerts. We’ll talk about how the budget will work and make sure that we find you the perfect home.

Find the perfect home and write an offer

When you’re ready to make an offer, your agent will present a written offer to the seller. And while everyone loves getting their offer accepted right away, the seller could come back to us with a counter offer, or reject your initial offer all together. We’re happy to walk you through each of these possibilities and exactly how to handle them. Once the offer is accepted, it’s time to get your financing in order and move forward to the next step!

Acceptance, appraisal and inspection

The sellers accepted your offer, and the home is going through appraisal and inspection. The appraisal guarantees that the price of the property matches the condition of the property while the inspection makes sure that everything in the home is functioning properly and there are no major issues inside. These are the last steps before the shiny keys to your home are placed in your hand... for good!

Time to close and get the keys

Get excited because it’s time to close on your home! This process includes going through all of the final paperwork and signing your name (a lot!). Don't forget to bring all of the paperwork you’ve collected along the way and your down payment.

Celebrate! 🥂
