I used Jill Johnson from your company, she was great and I loved getting the emails with the new listings at the same time agents get them.

Probably the best was is to have a Realtor who is a buyer's agent, put together a search on the MLS. Search options there are better than you can get elsewhere and all the homes in the area are there. You can have the results emailed to you or just view them on a website made just for you. You just need to specify where you are looking, price range, how many bedrooms, baths and other amenities you want.

Hey Sonja, Jim isn't looking for a home and didn't ask the question, Trent did. And Trent's not looking for a home,either, he's just posing a question...

Most Real Estate companies have websites that offer homebuyers to search through the MLS system on their own time and convenience, you normally just have to provide your email address. But your best approach is to contact a local Realtor. You will provide them with details on what you are looking for in a home and what areas you are searching in. They will send you listings that fit the bill and if you have further interest in any of the homes they will set up a showing for you. It is very helpful to have a Realtor working on your behalf-they know the area, the market, and most likely have been inside many of the homes for sale.

Good luck to you!
