Navigate The Home Buying Process
with Confidence

From start to finish, our step-by-step guide, expert guidance, and local market knowledge
 will take you from feeling overwhelmed to feeling in control and confident in your home
buying journey.


Meet in person & create a 

Let’s get to know each other! Once you’re ready to
work with our team, we’ll meet together for a Buyer
Consultation to focus your search and determine what
you want and need in a home.



We’ll introduce you to one of our mortgage partners,
who can help you determine your buying price range
with confidence. Be prepared to dig into paperwork
during this part of the process such as pay stubs,
W2’s, and tax returns. The lender will do a full review
and then tell you what you will be able to borrow in
order to purchase a home. This is a vital step in the
home buying process!


Listing alerts sent to you 
based on your criteria

Our agents get to know you — Need to move for a job?
Want a shorter commute? Getting married? Having a baby?
Need to upgrade or downsize? At this stage in the process,
we’ll send you notifications about the listings that you’re
most likely to be excited about. Be sure to let us know
if one (or more) jumps out at you so that we can schedule
viewings and be there with you every step of the way.


Schedule viewings & attend open houses

Here’s where the buying process gets really fun! We’ll
go to local open houses together and schedule
viewings of the homes that you’ve loved from our
listing alerts. We’ll talk about how the budget will work
and make sure that we find you the perfect home.


Find the perfect home & write an offer

When you’re ready to make an offer, your agent will
present a written offer to the seller. And while everyone
loves getting their offer accepted right away, the seller
could come back to us with a counteroffer, or reject
your initial offer all together. We’re happy to walk you
through each of these possibilities and exactly how to
handle them. Once the offer is accepted, it’s time to
get your financing in order and move forward to the next step!


Acceptance, Inspection & 

The sellers accepted your offer, and the home is going
through inspection and appraisal. The appraisal
guarantees that the price of the property matches the
condition of the property while the inspection makes
sure that everything in the home is functioning
properly and there are no major issues inside. These
are the last steps before the shiny keys to your home
are placed in your hand... for good!


Time to close & get the keys

Get excited because it’s time to close on your home!
This process includes going through all of the final
paperwork and signing your name (a lot!). Don't forget
to bring all of the paperwork you’ve collected along the
way, your driver's license and your down payment.

Review from Rachel Bartels
Terri is an awesome realtor to work with. She went above and beyond finding a perfect home for us & answered our many, many questions! Made our first time home buying experience so much easier.
Review from Tammie
Gayle Reid went above and beyond selling my town house in one day. The buyer backed out because I couldn't find an apartment in time and the interest rate went up. She helped me find an apartment and looked at many mobile homes with me. She relisted my town house and sold it in 3 days and found a nice condo for me to rent.
Review from Betsy Rinaldi
I could not have asked for a better agent than Gayle Reid and the team behind her at Slocum. Buying a house is overwhelming; there are so many things to consider but Gayle guided me through the process with grace, poise, and the sometimes-firm hand I needed. She worked with my ever-fluctuating budget, spent her weekends with me at every open house, and made sure everything went smoothly from my offer being accepted to closing. Gayle was my rock through this experience. She answered my numerous (and sometimes odd) questions, was honest about the houses we saw, and always made me feel like she was on my side. I cannot recommend Gayle enough. I never want to move again but if I did, she would be my first call. Thank you, Gayle!
Review from Melissa Andrews
Jon was so awesome in our journey to buy our home! I am a first time buyer and my fiance has bought a few houses before, and he was awesome at meeting both of us at our levels of understanding to make the process seamless. He gave great advice, helped us work through making decisions, and made every step of the process really enjoyable. House hunting can be overwhelming and complicated, but I had a lot of fun learning about it and felt Jon prioritized our goals and vision!

Kelly is wonderful to work with!!
Review from Chinmay Patil
I had a wonderful experience working with Laurie and the team at Slocum Home Team. The process of buying our first home felt really easy thanks to them. Laurie provided with all the information when requested and helped thoroughly throughout the process until closing. Will likely refer them in future.
