FREE - First-Time Home Buyer Workshop

First Time Home Buyer

Workshop - Date/Time TBD

 

             Registration starts TBD  -  Workshop starts 1/2 Hour later

 

                 Sleep Inn & Suites, Upper Glen Street, Queensbury

Description

Have you ever thought about buying your own home?  It isn’t nearly as difficult nor as expensive as you may think.  In less than forty minutes you can find out if you qualify to purchase and, within two months, you could be closing on your brand new home. Imagine that – in the next two months, you could go from renter to homeowner.  How great is that?

 Is It Complicated?

Yes, I’m not going to lie to you, buying a home can be a complicated process.  But that is actually the wrong question. The right question is “Is it hard?”  The answer to that is a definitive “no”. Why?  Because while the process can be complicated, you only have to handle a small part of the equation – your agent handles the rest.

 Learn More
You can find out more by coming out to one of my free seminars, “Buying Your First Home”.  In the workshops, I cover all of the details you need to know about who is involved in the transaction, what expenses you’ll have and how to avoid paying a commission by accident.  In two hours or less, you’ll learn all of the basics you need to know before you start house hunting. (By the way, if you think your parents can tell you how it works, you’re probably wrong. Unless they’ve bought in the last few years, the process is very different than when they purchased.)

 No Obligation
I like to give these workshops because it means that I end up working with highly educated buyers.  So what do you think? Are you tired of spending your hard-earned money and ending up with nothing except rent receipts?  Have you ever dreamed about owning your own home?  Don’t you owe it to yourself to see if you might turn that dream into reality?

Complimentary 7 Night Resort Vacation Stay!

Enjoy A Free 7 Night Resort Vacation Stay

 

I offer my successful buyer clients and my successful seller clients a Complimentary 7 Night Resort Vacation Stay after the purchase and/or sale is completed.

Sellers may offer this 7 Night Resort Vacation Stay as an incentive to the ultimate purchaser - or they may save it until after completion of the sale for their own, well-deserved, relaxing vacation - or they can give it away as a gift to family or friends!

My buyer clients will also be offered a Complimentary 7 Night Resort Vacation Stay as a closing gift, as they too, will be ready for a relaxing vacation get-away after completing the home buying process.

If one of my buyer clients buys one of my seller clients' homes - both buyer and seller will be offered a Complimentary 7 Night Resort Vcation Stay!

These 7 Night Resort Vacation Stays are mostly available during off-season or during the shoulder-seasons.  By searching the appropriate website, you can find numerous available locations, including several Florida cities, Las Vegas, Nevada, Cape Cod, Massachusetts, etc.  To select a nicer resort or more preferred vacation week, upgrades are available.

Why give-away vacations?  I may be the only local agent thanking my clients with a Complimentary (FREE) 7 Night Resort Vacation Stay. Here's why:  Having bought and sold several homes over the years, I know first-hand how strenuous and emotionally draining these real estate transactions may sometimes be.  By the time you have completed the buying or selling process, you DESERVE a break - a chance to unwind and re-energize.

I also have hopes that once you have utilized my services; experienced my exceptional efforts to save you both time and money; survived the closing process - and then enjoyed a relaxing Complimentary 7 Night Resort Stay - you will recommed me to all your family, friends and co-workers!  I wil offer them the same great service and a Complimentary 7 Night Resort Stay.

                Complimentary (FREE) 7 Night Resort Vacation Stay

Welcome to my Website

With my 25+ years of real estate sales comes solid real estate marketing and sales experience that can save my clients time, money and frustration.  I welcome the opportunity to explain the many advantages to working with me and with Coldwell Banker Prime Properties, the leader in real estate sales in Warren, Washington and Saratoga counties.

Our emphasis on using technology to increase the market opportunities for our clients is unsurpassed, including a personal agent website, a property website for each listing, virtual tours and so much more.  All of my properties boast plenty of high quality photos and in-depth descriptions proudly displayed on Coldwellbankerprime.com.

As a Certified Buyer Representative, I have repeatedly saved my buyer-clients time and money while helping them find the home that best fit their needs and their pocketbook.  I point out not just the home's positive features, but also any negative features that may impact the home's suitability or market value - now or in the future.

Specialties

First-Time & Move-Up Home Buyers

I especially enjoy working with First-Time Home Buyers.  Without first-time home buyers, current owners would almost never be able to sell and move up to a new home.  First-time home buyers, with little knowledge or experience in the home buying process, have a greater need for a Buyer Representative to safeguard their best interests. Quite often, it's just a few years later that my "First-Time Homebuyers" become move-up buyers and I help them both sell their current home and buy their new dream home.

Buyer Representation Advantage

As a Certified Buyer Representative, I have received buyer representation training, above and beyond that taught in the initial Real Estate Salesperson Pre-Licensing or Real Estate Associate Broker courses.  This can be a great, money-saving, advantage for my clients.  

7 Night Resort Vacation Stay

All of my successful clients receive, from me personally, a Compimentary 7 Night Resort Stay at a multitude of possible locations throughout the United States as my "Thank-you" gift for allowing me the opportunity and priviledge of representing them in what is one of the largest purchases or sales they may ever make.

Professional Background

I graduated from Adirondack Community College with an AAS in Business Management and Accounting, which has helped me greatly in managing my real estate business and assisting my clients as they analyse their sale or purchase.

I served in the United States Navy for over 20 years, often buying a home and then re-selling 3-4 years later upon my transfer to the next duty station.  I served mostly in administrative and personnel management capacities.  This tremendous career provided me with much helpful knowledge and experience as it relates to buying, selling, negotiating and communicating.

I earned my certification as a Certified Buyer Representative and a Licensed Real Estate Associate Broker to better support and represent my real estate clients.  I have also completed all continuing education requirements,yet still attend occasional presentations to stay abreast of changes in the market, new business practices and changes in real estate laws.

 

Personal Background

    My 20 years in the United States Navy included a tour during which I served on a heavy cruiser, the USS Newport News (CA-148), which spent 6 months in the Vietnam Combat Zone and visited several Southeast Asia countries.  After completing my first tour of duty, I finished my college degree.

    I married my wonderful wife, Darlene, in 1971 and we have raised one fabulous son, Joseph, who now lives on Treasure Island in St. Petersburg, Florida.  He is a self-taught, successful, Internet Marketer, with a young dog named Foxy Mama. 

    Darlene and I live in Queensbury, attend First Baptist Church of Glens Falls and have lots of family and friends in the local area.  Our thirteenth annual family reunion was held again this year at our home, with 42 relatives attending.

Community Involvement

Member First Baptist Church of Glens Falls; Vice Chairman of the Board of Trustees.

Contribute support to the "Open Door" food kitchen and "Community Action" food pantry.

Supervisor of Queensbury Men's "Over 30" Basketball League.

Member Glens Falls YMCA and the "Noon-time Basketball Association(NBA)"

 

 

Personal Interests

    I am a sports enthusiast, whether it's playing golf, softball or basketball; pitching horseshoes or shooting pool, playing darts or watching baseball, basketball, football and ocassionally golf on TV.  Although not a great athlete, I always play to win and love the spirit of honest competition. 

    I also work part-time with the Queensbury Department of Parks & Recreation, supervising the men's "Over 30" basketball league year-around at Queensbury High School.  We're always looking for a few more good men, so if you're a basketball fanatic and are "Over 30", contact the Queensbury Parks & Recreation Office at 761-8216 and I'll see you on the court!

    My wife and I also love to travel and have visited Las Vegas, New Orleans, Palm Springs, Atlantic City, Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head, Cape Cod, the Bahamas, Gatlinburg, Montreal and several resorts in Florida, incluidng The Villages - a huge "over-55" active retirement community.  Later this year we will be visiting Cypress Lakes in the "Lakeland, Florida area" and also visit our son during our vacation.
