I didnt think I would get sarcastic answers or replies that had nothing to do with what I posted..All I wanted was a realtor or tow to answer with "yes, I am familiar with the northside, here is my email/number, etc, call me and let's talk" READ my post and READ the responses..Laugahable

Well, I certainly understand your frustration, which is why I got into the business myself. You will notice that I did provide my phone number and an invitation to talk. That invitation is still open. The only thing missing from my response is "I am familiar with the northside" but we work as a team and are collectively familiar with many areas of the city. It all depends on how you define "northside".

I am sure this will get at least 20 responses. Interview two or three agents, and go with the one you mesh best with. Do some research on them. This will make the process on you much easier.

Greetings North Sider,

If CASH, have your proof of funds ready, If FINANCING, have your preapproval ready. If you are READY to make a purchase, be prepared to make an offer quickly because well priced homes are selling fast. Should you need any help, feel free to contact me to discuss.
