Do I Need a Buyer’s Agent?
The availability of online home search platforms may have made you ask this question. After all, if you can view homes on the market in your chosen neighborhood, why work with a real estate professional? However, now more than ever, having a buyer's agent on your side during your real estate transaction is a great idea, saving you time, money, and headaches. Here’s why.
1. Targeted, custom searches
When you’re looking online for your next home, you may not always find exactly what you want. Judging solely from photos on a portal, you won’t get a sense of the neighborhood, building, or school district. By working with Tanya on your home purchase, you’ll receive search results that are customized to your needs and desires, backed by the expertise and experience of someone who truly know how to match buyers with the homes of their dreams.
2. Pre-market properties
Online portals are behind the curve when it comes to the market. Highly desirable properties may be snapped up before they ever hit a platform like Zillow. However, Tanya will know what’s currently on the market as well as new listings in the private broker network -- and can help get you in the door for a personal showing before anyone else even knew the property was available.

3. Market expertise
Where’s the next hot condo market in Chicago? Where are single family homes on the deepest lots? What is the most desirable elementary school in your target market? Which building has the best luxury amenities included in the HOA? Tanya will always be available to answer your questions, and provide information on important topics you never considered
4. Industry connections
Need to talk to a mortgage lender who specializes in working with business owners and entrepreneurs? Need a contractor with an expertise in historic properties? Whatever specialized professional you need, Tanya can make the introduction to an experienced and trusted vendor. Because she works with affiliated companies day-in and day-out, Tanya knows who can meet your timeline and can connect you with the most qualified and reliable experts in their field.

5. Expert negotiator
Buying a home can be a tense, emotional process -- and emotion is the enemy of strong negotiations. You need a buffer between you and the seller -- one who can keep your goals in mind and effectively represent your interests. Working on your behalf, Tanya will draft a strong offer then negotiate the contract, contingencies, home inspection items, and more until you reach the closing table.
What if you get back a low appraisal? What if you’re stuck in underwriting and your financing contingency is almost up? What happens if there’s a problem at the final walk-through? You won't have to worry if Tanya is your agent, offering the advice you need and advocating on your behalf with all parties in the transaction.. Tanya has seen it all, so she know how to keep the deal together and create solutions you can feel good about.
7. Professional advice
At some point during the home buying process, you’ll need some perspective. Tanya will be there with advice based on years of experience and scores of transactions -- advice that you can count on. While they won’t make the decision for you, they’ll offer you the insights you need to make better, more informed decisions for better short- and long-term outcomes.

8. Transaction management
Tracking contingencies, getting inspection reports in on time, and smoothing the path to the closing table -- this type of coordination and transaction management is second nature to Tanya. She'll make sure that every T is crossed and every i is dotted -- so you have more time to enjoy the process and plan your upcoming move.
9. Fiduciary-level service
Tanya is bound by professional ethics to provide fiduciary-level service to her clients. What does that mean? It means that your interests are the only ones that matter. Tanya is committed to achieving the best possible outcome for you. That means you can count on the advice and guidance you receive and trust the process.
10. Service after closing
After you're settled in your new home, questions will continue to come-up, and Tanya is just a call or text away.. You’ll need another copy of a closing document for your tax or insurance records. You’ll want to know how to add value to your home or what’s going on in your market. Consider Tanya your trusted real estate advisor long after the closing.
Thinking about upgrading to a larger home? Tanya can help you with both your listing and your purchase, creating a more seamless transaction.

Tanya was wonderful to work with. She was informative, communicative, professional, and knowledgeable. She was able to keep us informed and up-to-date in all the details since we had already moved across the country and everything was handled remotely. I would recommend her to anybody looking to sell their home!
