Buying a Home

For some, it can feel very overwhelming. That’s where I come in.

Helping you buy the right home starts with understanding your needs and wants.

Having someone you trust to negotiate, support and get the best value for your hard-earned money will make your buying experience the best it can possibly be. 

Questions are encouraged! When it is all said and done, I want you to feel like you’re an expert with the home buying process. 

My goal is to thoroughly explain and guide you through the transaction so you are well aware of your options and then some.

“6 Stars if I could. Just when you thought customer service was dead and buried Elyse Gallagher… is the BEST realtor one could ever hope for. She worked tirelessly to find the perfect home for my family in this crazy seller’s market. My search was extensive but she remained enthusiastic, helpful and encouraging throughout what was a very tiresome process for me. Highest recommendations!”

Frequently Asked Home Buying Questions

Do I need a pre-approval before looking to buy a home?

While technically, you don’t need a pre-approval to go look at homes, it is certainly encouraged.  Why? Because we want to know that you’re not going to fall in love with a dream property you ultimately cannot own… yet! 

When you start your home buying journey with a pre-approval from a mortgage specialist, you know exactly how much you can afford and what payments will work with your budget. 

Don’t know where to start? Let me help you get in touch with some fantastic lenders.

Do I have to pay for your services?

The best part of using a professional real estate agent to purchase a property is, in many cases, you do not have to pay them out of your own pocket. When houses are listed on the MLS® the Sellers typically include compensation for your realtor’s time and efforts.

This means you’re hiring a professional to work for you at no additional expense.
