Mary I would like to followup if you have found the right agent to work with? If you are still interviewing, I would love to have the opportunity to meet you as well.

Hi Mary,

I also agree with Margaret, you should feel comfortable and trust that the agent has YOUR best interest in mind. What will help you to find that comfort and trust in an agent is to find one that represents your interests, listens, is forthcoming and understands that just because you didn't ask a question, doesn't mean you don't want & deserve information. As a lifelong Manassas resident, and teacher in the school system for 10 years, I would be happy to share all of the information that you need to make your informed decision.

Please contact me if you've not yet found what you're looking for in an agent.

Also, as a personal and side note, is there any chance that you are related to Mindi or Dara? I ask because we went to school together in Manassas and Nigreville isn't the most common last name. Obviously, no need to answer the personal question here, so feel free to contact me directly or find me on Facebook :)

It's important that you find an agent that you are comfortable with and trust. One that will walk you through the purchase process, and one that will give you the tools and information you need to be able to make informed decisions.

Hi Mary,
You are in a great position! Buying your first home is an exciting time and there really are Realtors out there who want to help you. All you have to do is pick up the phone and start calling them. See who answers the phone; who makes time to first LISTEN, then answer your questions; then find out who you can hear.
Sounds like you are looking for an agent to walk the path with you, not blaze a trail ahead of you. I am happy to look for properties for you, recommend a lender, and help you receive closing costs or other financial benefits that are meaningful to you and your husband.
You can learn more about me at Homes4SaleinVirginia.com. Please contact me if you haven't found the right match yet!

Dear Mary:

Buying your first home is an experience filled with excitement but it can be overwhelming when you don’t know where to find the right help, in order to get the best value: something which fits right into your budget and also gives you an opportunity to make those extra bucks when it comes to re-sale and an upgrade in future.
I have helped many First Time Home Buyers here in Northern Virginia with one recently closed with a VHDA loan and an incredibly low interest rate of 2.67. I would love to help you as well with your first home!!
With FTHB my biggest goal is to get you a house which is move-in ready and needs little to no repairs so you don't need to spend extra $$$ on fixing & can spend that time and money to something you enjoy doing.
I would love to sit with you to determine your goals and needs towards your first purchase which is going to be one of your most important investments. Let me know when would be a good time so we can meet and I can explain the process in detail to make the whole transaction stress and worry free for you. I can also provide testimonials from my past clients on request.

Hope this information is helpful to you and Good Luck for your home!!
