Home Buying in Dallas>Question Details

Fmly1st, Home Buyer in Cedar Hills, UT

Relocating to Dallas area and are looking for buyer's agents to interview and suggestions for lenders who can expedite the closing process.

Asked by Fmly1st, Cedar Hills, UT Sat Jun 1, 2013

My family will be relocating to the Dallas area this Summer. Living out of state, we don't have any personal referrals of buyer's agents or lenders, so if you are interested or have any suggestions, please respond with why we should interview you and any other helpful information.
We have flexibility to live where we want, because my husband will work out of our home, but we have specific needs as well. We are not yet set on 1 area, so we would need an agent who can show us several areas, including Frisco, Garland, Rowlett, Fort Worth, and possibly even Midlothian. We are very particular about school districts and would like a 5 bdrm home in a safe, family-friendly suburb. We would need an agent to be very accessible the week of June 28-July 5, as we are flying in to find a home, make an offer, and hopefully have things settled by the time we leave that week. We would also like to know of lenders that can expedite the loan process because we would like to move the 1st week in Aug.

Just pick any 1 Realtor on this site and work with them only. It is better to try and meet them face to face.

HI there! Love your "handle" - "Fmly 1st"! Mine is "Your Home Is Where My Heart Is" - We moved here in 1997 and had a great real estate agent take us around for an entire weekend to help us get "acclimated". By the end of the weekend we were under contract. I recently assisted a family moving here from Florida and we had a great time checking out their options for an entire day and they were under contract by that evening! I gave them a notebook with maps, etc so they could understand where they were as we viewed, etc. You'll want someone who is organized in order to find something that quickly. ;)

Best thing is to ask an agent to set up a custom search for you this week so you and the agent can zero in on style of home you like, etc ahead of time to maximize your time when here the following week. I enjoy listening to my client's needs and then the actual "hunt" to find the closest fit possible. Once you find a house you like, we'll do a quick market analysis of that neighborhood to help determine a good offering price.

You're correct to talk to a lender before coming as well since sellers expect a "pre-approval" letter with any offer. I have a list of local lenders I'd be happy to provide to you.

Call me with questions. Would be happy to help! You're going to love Dallas! So much to do!

I am a mortgage broker in the Austin area and work with over 20 lenders. It is fairly easy to close in as little as 20 days now if the client is on board and gets me the necessary documentation right away. Brokering with many lenders also allows me to obtain the most competitive financing options as well because we are never tied down to one lender's offerings or timeline. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to discuss your financing options.

Hope this helps.

First of all I'd like to welcome you to Texas!

I'd be happy to assist you in finding a property in North Dallas (Frisco and it surrounding area) as I specialized in the area. I have helped so many clients relocate from out of state to the Dallas area, and I help educate them about the area as well. I can also connect you with lenders that I usually work with so you can start the lending process now.

As a mother, I know school is very important to us parents and I'd be happy to share school info if you call me or we can definitely discuss about this when you arrive.

Let me know if I can be of assistance. I'm available June 28 - July 5 and my references are available upon request.

Take care,
