Our 9-Step Home Buyer Process

We'll Guide You Through Every Step


Getting To Know You

When you're ready, we'll meet with you in person for a preliminary buyer consultation. During this meeting, we’ll discuss exactly what you want and need in a new home and give you an overview of the home buying process. 


Pre-Qualify Before You Buy

This essential step will help you understand what you can afford and give us added leverage in negotiations. If you’d like, we can introduce you to our trusted mortgage partner, who will simplify the lending process and help you secure the loan you need.


Focus On Your Best Options

Now that we know more about you and what you're looking for, we'll send you notifications for listings that match your specific criteria. If you see something you like, just let us know, and we can proceed to the next step.


See Them For Yourself

This is where things get exciting. We'll schedule and take you on tours of the homes you select. We'll also discuss with you the benefits of each option and make sure the homes fit within your specific budget.


Make An Offer

When you find the perfect home, we'll present the seller with a formal written offer. We'll also advise you on how to best handle any of the seller's counteroffers, and negotiate on your behalf until your offer is accepted.


Check It Twice

We want to make sure the purchase you’re about to make is a smart one. We'll guide you though the appraisal and inspection process to verify the price matches to condition of the home and to ensure that everything in the home functions properly.


It's Closing Time

This part of the process involves reviewing all the paperwork and signing your name to all the documents. We'll be there with you at the closing table to answer any questions you might have. Once you complete this step the home is yours.


Get The Keys & Celebrate!

Now that you've signed all the paperwork, it’s time to move in! We'll make sure you get your keys so you can begin planning your move right away. But first, take a moment to celebrate - you deserve it!


Share With Friends & Family

Be sure to share your positive experience with friends and family. When they're ready to buy or sell a home, we'll be there for them, just like we were for you.

What Clients Are Saying About Us

"My wife and I were very fortunate the day we met Donna.We drove by a for sale house, swamped with people and realtors seeing the house. We didn't have a realtor, the owner called his, Donna. Although she was the seller's realtor she worked as hard for us. Each time we contacted her needing help (our home was being sold) she responded immediately, and always with the help we needed. We appreciate you Donna! I know of no one else that would have gone those extra miles to help us. Should we ever need a realtor, we would definitely call you. Thank you Donna."

~ Tilden and Annette Skeens

"Donna Lampkins is the best realtor I've worked with and I've owned 9 homes over the years. She is bright, very experienced, follows through and listens. She is easy and even fun to work with, making sometimes difficult negotiations and actions easier. She is ethical and is driven to help her clients make the best choices rather that profit personally. Best wishes and good luck to you Donna."

"I highly recommend Donna Lampkins without reservation. She took over after another agent "sat" on the property without doing any work. She immediately assessed the situation, made recommendations and followed through on every detail. She hired an excellent aerial photographer and worked with him and me. Once she repriced the property, based upon her accurate recommendations, we had several showings, resulting in a sale. She is bright, experienced and fun to work with. She takes her work seriously but doesn't take herself too seriously. Thanks Donna!"
