Why I Became a Realtor...

Years ago, I was lucky enough to come across a real estate agent who showed me that owning a home was closer than I thought. From the time I held my very first keys to my own home, I’ve been moved to pay that forward and help guide others into THEIR first home.


What Makes Me Different?

For 20 years I've specialized in working with first time homebuyers & those concerned that their finances are not where they need to be right now. I have the resources needed to show you how to purchase a home now or at least create a plan. Finally, many agents don’t make time for renters. If you find yourself in the position where have to rent for a short time before buying, most other agents are not likely to help with a lease which means having to start all over again with someone new or searching around on your own. If a little extra time is needed before buying, I’ll be the one to help you find a place to live right now & continue to work with you to make sure you become a homeowner in the future.

You may be closer than you think!  -Becca

tax benefits of buying a home

"I believe everyone deserves to own a home. More importantly I know there are many who really want to, but don’t think they can either right now or ever. Years ago I was shown by an agent how I could own a home when I didn’t think I could. Now I pass along that motivation, with the expertise and resources I’ve gathered along the way, to my clients who want to become homeowners, too. " -Becca

In a traditional rental market you'll need to apply & pay out-of-pocket application fees up front to a management company to have a credit check performed which can become very costly. Providing your own application file including a letter & detailed credit report for review in advance of applying online will save you time & money if you are unsure you qualify as each specific management company has their own application process & minimum requirements for each property listed.

​​RENT A HOME

 

Simplify the process of finding a new rental home by viewing up-to-date rentals available online using FlexMLS.


Streamline your search by gathering the necessary application documents upfront to ensure you will qualify for a new lease.

In a competitive rental market you will benefit by doing a little work upfront to be one step ahead of other applicants.


Most property managers want to see the following information in order to approve you for a new lease:

  1. Application & ID (showing employment, past rental history and if ever filed BK, had conviction, eviction, etc)
  2. Gross Monthly Income = 3x amount of rent to be paid (combined gross income of all applicants)
  3. Proof of Income (copies of income statements for most recent 30 days, recent bank statement showing deposits or tax return)
  4. Good rental history (on-time rent payments over the past 12 months)
  5. Good credit history (above a 600 FICO score but requirements vary with each property manager)
  6. Start a lease within 15-30 days of approval


Simplify your search by using free resources (FlexMLS access & assistance with application essentials) to get a competitive edge.


Searching for a rental  in a high demand rental market can be frustrating if you are driving around calling from yard signs or endlessly searching online rental sites. Many times you just need a little more info from a property manager & never get a call back. If & when you finally get a call back the home may already be unavailable.  When you contact a property management company direct as a tenant (call from signs or online sites like zillow.com or homes.com), the managing agent you are working with most likely represents only the property owner or landlord not you as a tenant.  By having an agent on your side who represents you & your best interests as a tenant simplifies the rental process & will give peace of mind that you have an advocate working for you - increase your odds at getting approved for your new place!


If you have pets, bumpy credit (<600 FICO) or spotty job or rental history you may be required to write a personal letter of explanation.  Include any detail about your pet (age/breed/size) or hardship (eg: credit issues due to medical, student loan debt, job loss, BK, etc).  It is key to pull your own credit report in advance & provide a full report (score & detail) to show your credit history.  Providing a letter of explanation upfront plus your own detailed credit report will give a property manager or owner the opportunity to review the application file
as a whole (or allows them to compare your app to others they may already have in hand) to determine if you meet their specific minimum approval requirements.


Use ourFlexMLS search portal access to search rentals or contact us to set up a custom list of homes for you.  
Homes are listed on the MLS by individual agents/property managers who represent each owner.

Enjoy the benefits of having your own agent represent you as a renter!
