Once the mortgage specialist qualifies you, I will send you an email with all of the houses in that price range that meet your criteria.
Next, we would meet for a free no obligation consultation where I will go over the home buying process with you from A-Z. I will describe how all professionals fit into the process (attorneys, home inspectors, realtors, appraisers), your rights as a buyer under state law and my obligations to you as a realtor.
If you decide to work with me, we will start looking at houses.
BTW: below is a link to a home I'm listing which may work for a 1st time home buyer. What do you think?
Best of luck to your and your wife!

I am a Realtor with Wethersfield's #1 real estate company, Coldwell Banker, and I would love to talk more with you about the process!
Best first step is for you and your wife to call a mortgage professional and ask for a "mortgage pre-approval". This 15-20 minute phone call will give you an idea of how much house you're comfortable buying. We have a fantastic mortgage person here at the Wethersfield office, Justin Vicino with N.E. Moves Mortgage. Give him a call at #860-760-8015.
Looking forward to speaking with you next!

So, the short answer to your question is to hire a Realtor. You don't pay any fees for this service, because the commission is paid by the seller.
I live right in Rocky Hill, so I'm close by if you'd like some assistance or have further questions.
