My approach is to always personally meet with my buyers and have a consultation BEFORE we get in a car and "shop". I also introduce you to my preferred lender of choice, who will also spend about an hour with you to get all the necessary documentation in order to get you pre-approved for a loan prior to anythng else and go through the loan process.
The one on one approach is so much more valuable than a 1 hour, slam, bam info session. I love it when I can build the repore and trust with my clients upfront and have a professional yet fun experience. I can be reached at 925-200-3585 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Wishing you the best!
