Many are conventional, but there are nuances to each, so you'll want a real estate expert in Texas to help guide you through the process.

Sellers: As we get through the details of your transaction, I'll not only work to get the very best sales price, but I'll also campaign for reduced closing costs. And once we've reached an agreement, I'll walk you through the closing costs so you know exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: If you're purchasing real estate in Tarrant County, you'll receive a "Loan Estimate" (LE) of closing costs within three days of submitting your loan application. The estimate is based on the loan officer's past experiences and is required to be within an appropriate range so you're not shocked when you arrive at closing time. I'll be willing to look over the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that are uncertain.
