It is incredibly tempting to go house-hunting now due to:
  • Dizzyingly low interest rates; and
  • The passage of Proposition 19, which allows those of us 55+ to transfer our existing property tax base to a replacement property (more on that here).
However, it is imperative to complete your pre-approval paperwork PRIOR to beginning your home search. In today's market, you will not be able to submit an offer without it.

In order to perform effectively on your behalf, I must know your purchasing power at the outset and provide this proof-of funds letter to the seller. 

I work with several trusted local lenders who can pre-approve/pre-underwrite you to instill confidence in any Seller that you do indeed possess the ability to close. Please reach out to me if you are in need of a lender recommendation. 

It is my pleasure to work with you and prepare you for a win.


I am here to help you navigate all things real estate. Whether you are selling your home, interested in a complex investment exchange, a first-time home purchase or charting a move across country, I will ensure your experience is an exceptional one. Through our vast Global Relocation Network, I can connect you with an excellent agent anywhere in the world.

Please reach out whenever I may be of service to you, a family member or friend.
