Additional Resources

OK, so you’ve finally found that perfect property, now what? There’s still plenty to do before the closing and probably some upgrading to be done after. Below is important contact information you’ll need during the escrow period. You’ll likely only make 3-5 real estate transactions in your lifetime but I’m involved in dozens every year, so please contact me if you need additional support, or contact information or just need to know when is the right time to reach out to some of the people on this list.
