Home Buying in Kansas City>Question Details

Mslll, Home Buyer in Kansas City, MO

After two horrible realtor experiences I am in need of a realtor to "assist me" in finding my first home.

Asked by Mslll, Kansas City, MO Tue Apr 7, 2009

I am trying to take advantage of the KC Dream Program and would like a realtor experienced in this loan. Can anyone refer a qualified professional?

*First, you need to talk to several Realtors; go to open houses, real estate offices & interview. You want an agent that gets "you" and you need an agent that you feel comfortable with; someone who understands your needs & wants in a home. Communication is everything. After all, you are looking for your first home which is the largest investment you will ever be making. The Realtor is not the lender, but agents normally work with Mortgage Brokers that they know will get the job done.

The KC Program has its guidelines for the first time home-buyers. Go to their site: http://www.kcmo.org/planning.nsf/web/kcdream

I am not from your area, however; communication is universal in home buying.
Best of luck and feel free to contact me if you have questions.

Warm Regards,

So what happened? Did you find a home? A realtor? Get your questions about the Dream Program answered? I'm already wondering what the horrible experiences were; please don't leave me hanging on the ending.

MsIII, why do you feel that you had a bad experience? Do you think you found two bad realtors, or is there something that you are looking for specifically that they are not meeting? There are 2 questions outside of this forum that I would like to offer up. I know you are probably bombarded here with more hungry realtors. Let me know if you need a friend in the business. I am available to chat at 11am or 4:00pm tomorrow at (913) 287-HOME

I take it you are talking about the grant program of 20% up to $20,000. We are familiar with that, and you will also need a lender who is familiar wiith and has access to that program. I was just talking to someone on that very subject about 10 minutes ago in our office. We also have a loan officer in our office who is familiar with the program. Just call me, Larry Leone, 816-453-9100, and we can start the process for you.

MsIII - I am curious about your horrible experiences. If you share what they are, we might be able to provide you with some insight. I mean, maybe it is something that is common and we can enlighten you... or maybe you've just found the worst of the worst.

Hi there,

Perhaps this might help? The second URL is for lenders - but they may also know or be able to recommend a realtor for you. Personally, I like Wells Fargo.

To be honest, I haven't personally worked with anyone ont he KC Dream Program. I have worked with first time buyers quite a bit in my 10 years of selling houses in KC, and other than North of the River, know all the areas fairly well.

I am willing to do research- and in the past, when someone has their mind set on one financing path(whatever it is) what I find out in my research, often is enlightening. My goal is to provide infornation(the good, bad, and ugly) and help my first time buyers make an INFORMED decision.

If I can help, Let me know!
