Janet understands that a home represents many things – property, a financial asset, a shelter over one’s head, and ultimately, a refuge and the place where lifetime memories are created.  Since the decisions involved are inherently personal, the process of buying is much more about people than it is about property. Janet's mission to her buyer's is to deliver a uniquely personal and positive real estate experience.

 

In today’s competitive real estate market, home buyers are obtaining pre approval for mortgages prior to purchasing a home.  Mortgage consultants are readily available to assist you in the process of obtaining pre approval from a lending institution.   

 

 

Title insurance protects you.  If you wish to get the benefit of exclusive savings, let your attorney know that Thoroughbred Title Services is your title company of choice when you sign contracts with the seller.  Thoroughbred Title Services, a Houlihan Lawrence Affiliate, has introduced price competition and now provides title insurance to home purchasers at a 10% savings.
