Home Buyer Guide

We are really looking forward to helping you find that perfect home!
As I’m sure you’re hoping and expecting, home shopping is exciting and a lot of fun! But it can also be stressful and aggravating at times.
Which is why WE are giving you this...
If you’re like most buyers, you probably want to just get out there and see homes, right!? (And, of course we will!)
But please give this a quick read and refer back to it throughout the process of buying your home.
While this guide won’t get into every little detail about the process (We will be taking care of a lot of things behind the scenes which you’ll never need to worry about)... ...it does get into some things you should know about, which will save you time, effort, money, and heartache.
Again, we are looking forward to working with you, and thanks for choosing to work with us.

"My partner & I are new home owners!! We are settled into our Condo and could not be any happier with the unit or location. We were looking to step away from renting for a long time and the timing for our search did happen to be during the pandemic & unprecedented times. Jessica Plamondon kept us on top of the housing market. Jessica is highly organized, professional and genuine, really an absolute delight to work with. She was always happy to answer our questions & there were many! Jessica went above and beyond to make sure that we did not settle for anything but exactly what we wanted!!"

"Sandra was a terrific agent. She listened closely to my family's needs and found us a home that wasn't even listed. She also connected us with key trades to do some cosmetic changes and make it our home. Finally, she helped us to manage effectively a challenging seller--grateful for her work!"

"Sandra is an incredible realtor. We were moving from Toronto to the HRM and it took something like 4 trips before we found the place for us. Sandra was so determined to find us the perfect home. We lost one place but found something even better suited to us. Sandra never seemed fed up and never lost patience with us which was amazing. We now wake up to this beautiful view of the Bedford Basin each day (and I can enjoy yoga on the balcony). Since moving in we updated the kitchen to truly make it into OUR home. Can't thank Sandra enough."

She is always in touch with updates and communication. She is up front, on your side and will close that deal for you with your priorities being her top concern. You will only have regrets if you don't pick Sandra!"
