First time homebuyer ready to buy soon. Looking for a highly competent buyer's agent.

Asked by Timetobuy, Bloomington, MN Wed Jan 21, 2009

I am in the market to buy in the South Metro relatively soon.

My parameters are:
- first time homebuyer,
- excellent credit,
- verifyable income,
- $250K range.

I am looking for a buyer's agent that can best represent me in this transaction.

I'd like to meet and speak with a small number of well qualified realtors. Above all, what I would appreciate most is your ability to find homes that fit my preference, your ability and willingness to negotiate the best possible outcome for me, and your ability to navigate through all aspects of the transaction.

Your network of a very well qualified mortgage banker, a home inspector, and other professionals essential in the process of home buying-selling would be greatly appreciated.

Would you please respond to this thread with your willingness for consideration, and contact information. I would like to select my agent in the next few days, if possible.

Thank you.

i had a great experience with Tony Oliveri at Coldwell. here's his website. http://tonyoliveri.com/

He's a great guy and is all about the experience and also knows someone in almost every industry/business. I used his friend for my mortage and was very happy and her husband for my insurance. He's def a people person.

as a side note, i had actually found a place before contacting any agents so my search was def more narrowed.
