Hi Anne, Trulia is a great place to begin your search - go to the "find a pro" section and look by community/zip/county/state. Agree with prior poster, interview several and be sure to read the testimonials (you'll find them on the agents' profiles) and ask to speak to past clients. Find an agent that is FULL TIME, knowledgeable - knows her market and inventory cold, has the analytic knowhow to tap and work with the substantial amount of data for your benefit, is responsive and works the way you do.
Once you find her - and assuming she delivers on her promises - reward her with your loyalty ;-)!

If you use your $40K as a down payment, with 6.5% rate (non-owner-occupied interest rate), 30 year fixed principal and interest payment would be roughly $2,591. I have a bank owned duplex in San Francisco on 48th Avenue 1 block from Golden Gate Park and the beach. Each unit is 1 bedroom/1bathroom â€“ great condition â€“ rent is $1,350 per unit a total of $2,700 per month. San Francisco is a terrific place to own property.
Because I never represent both sides of a transaction, you need to call my Buyerâ€™s agent Christine Barraco (650) 346-2517. This is an awesome opportunity â€“ we just lowered the price and it has been getting a lot of attention. If you would prefer to talk with me first, please feel free to call me directly.

Thanks Pam and Bruce! We thought the brokerages would be a good spot, but we wanted to think of who else might be out there who is looking to get into real estate but has not found the right idea.... more
