One thing every homebuyer should keep in mind when searching for a home: Listen to your gut instinct about how a home makes you feel. Use your imagination to look beyond the current homeowner’s décor, envisioning the home with your personal belongings. Choose a Buyer’s Agent (Realtor) to personally represent your best interest in the biggest investment you will ever make. Keep in mind, a Listing Agent (Realtor) started their fiduciary duty initially with the Sellers and is representing their best interest. It should not cost you anything as a buyer to have separate representation. Expect your Realtor to listen to your needs and provide advice based on the current market conditions.
Your favorite charity in fargo moorhead is and why: The Junior League of Fargo-Moorhead is an organization of women committed to promoting volunteerism, improving the community through effective action and leadership of trained volunteers, and developing the potential of women. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable. This will be my tenth year in the league and I am currently serving on the board of directors. The Junior League of FM started the Children’s Museum of Yunker Farm, assisted with the remodeling of the Ronald McDonald Houses, is currently working with the Habitat for Humanity Women’s Build, is combating childhood obesity with “Kids In The Kitchen”, and continues to help the community in countless other ways.
