  • We can help you buy a home by school boundary

Recently, we had a few subscribers tell us that they weren’t aware that we could help them buy a home.

They were delighted to have found this website “a rich, unique resource” (in their own words), and then go through the frustration and disappointment of buying a home with an agent who didn’t speak the Home by School language.

We were disappointed to have lost their business too.  So we asked them what we could have done better to make us both happy.

They suggested we make our services more obvious

See, our style has been “friendly and low pressure” communication, hoping to earn your trust before we ask for your business or for your referrals.

But these nice people said that there is too much going on in their busy lives, and that they needed clear, effective communication from the start.

Hence this post.  We’re going to be as clear as possible. I hope that you don’t find us “pushy” or “self touting”.

Yes, we are a team of Realtors®, and we can help you!

Have you seen the Home by School blog and the subscriber resources (i.e. The No-Tears Guide to Moving to Fairfax, VA) ?

They’re chock-full of info.  And that’s only the tip of the iceberg.

We have EVEN MORE info to share with you

Once you are past the stage of selecting a school boundary, and then finding a home you love, you’ll want to know all the ins-and-outs of:

  • making a winning offer,
  • negotiating an offer that protects you, and
  • navigating the contract process safely.

And you have seen all the valuable info that we give out for free to the public.  Imagine what we have saved for our clients.

We have a lot more info to give to our clients

We have information that may save you from buying a “lemon” house, or from unnecessarily losing your deposit.  This information may save you from losing thousands of dollars.

And how do we know it?  By learning, by experience, by being on top of what’s happening in the local real estate market.

None of this information is “secret”

Technically, everyone who works in real estate should know it.

But it takes a lot of effort to stay on top of all the nuances and the constant changes of the contracts and the law. And not everyone keeps up. Not everyone loves to pay attention to the little details.

We do.

We love paying attention to detail.

We stay on top of school boundary changes, we stay on top of school calendar changes, and we stay on top of important issues that might affect your home selection.

We also stay on top of real estate matters

We are constantly attending classes, participating in discussions, and we pride ourselves in representing our clients very well.

We want to make sure that our clients are as protected as possible. After all, this is the biggest purchase of their life. It’s important to be protected!

We like to stay on top of real estate matters because we like being thorough. But you already know that. You can see the tip of the iceberg of our dedication on our website.

So, now that you know that we are REALTORs®, how can we help you?

Drop us a note, or pick up the phone.

We’d love to hear from you and represent you on your next real estate transaction.

Thanks for your trust in advance,

Marina Brito




P.S. But… what if you already have an agent? Well, if you have a signed brokerage agreement, sadly, we won’t be able to help you until it expires (or is cancelled)*.

And if you don’t have a signed agreement, then you are free to talk to us, and we are free to help you.

Unless, of course, you feel that you are committed to your sister-in-law, or your boss’s spouse who have a real estate license… yeah, that can get tricky for you. Well, then, maybe they’d understand that you need specific home by school expertise and they can either agree to provide it for you or perhaps they would be happy to refer you to us. We’d be glad to pay them a referral fee.

*This is NOT a solicitation if you have a signed brokerage agreement that is still active. If so, you may want to ask your agent for the info that you need, after all, that’s why you hired them. 😉

P.P.S. Don’t be shy, drop us a note

Your turn, what do you think?
