See our 8 step process for buyers.
Beginning your home search can be an overwhelming and daunting task. Because of that, our team makes sure that you, and all other potential buyers, understand each of the 8 steps that we take to make the process as easy and painless as possible. By the end of your search, with our support and guidance, you will live happily ever after in your new, dream home.
Let’s get to know each other! Once you’re ready to work with our team, we’ll meet together for a Buyer Consultation to focus your search and determine what you want and need in a home.
We’ll introduce you to our mortgage partner, who can help you determine your buying price range with confidence. Be prepared to dig into paperwork during this part of the process such as pay stubs, W2’s, and tax returns. The lender will do a full review and then tell you what you will be able to borrow in order to purchase a home. This is a vital step in the home buying process!
Our agents get to know you — Need to move for a job? Want a shorter commute? Getting married? Having a baby? Need to upgrade or downsize? At this stage in the process, we’ll send you notifications about the listings that you’re most likely to be excited about. Be sure to let us know if one (or more) jumps out at you so that we can skip to the next step and schedule a viewing. be there for you every step of the way.
Here’s where the buying process gets really fun! We’ll go to local open houses together and schedule viewings of the homes that you’ve loved from our listing alerts. We’ll talk about how the budget will work and make sure that we find you the perfect home.
When you’re ready to make an offer, your agent will present a written offer to the seller. And while everyone loves getting their offer accepted right away, the seller could come back to us with a counter offer, or reject your initial offer all together. We’re happy to walk you through each of these possibilities and exactly how to handle them. Once the offer is accepted, it’s time to get your financing in order and move forward to the next step!
The sellers accepted your offer, and the home is going through appraisal and inspection. The appraisal guarantees that the price of the property matches the condition of the property while the inspection makes sure that everything in the home is functioning properly and there are no major issues inside. These are the last steps before the shiny keys to your home are placed in your hand... for good!
Get excited because it’s time to close on your home! This process includes going through all of the final paperwork and signing your name (a lot!). Don't forget to bring all of the paperwork you’ve collected along the way and your down payment.
Let us congratulate you on this milestone with a celebration toast, a keepsake photo of you with your new set of keys, or even a housewarming party! Seriously, we are excited for you and so grateful to be a part of this journey.

Geoff & Laura were true partners in the sales process, from marketing our home to staying on top of the normal escrow issues that arise. This is the 3rd home we've sold, and by-far this was the best sales experience yet! If you're serious about selling, be serious about talking to Geoff!
We were so happy with Geoff and all of his expertise! He made selling our home a quick and painless process. Thank you Laura for always taking all of my calls (sorry). You took excellent care of me. I could go on and on about this top notch team but the bottom line is that The Goolsby Group is truly the best!!!
We are "frequent flyers" with Geoff, and there's a reason we keep coming back: he's been just awesome for us! He knows what we want, and has helped us find homes to fit the bill. We had particularly challenging negotiations with buyers and sellers, and he handled all with grace and professionalism. Laura is wonderful as well, and extremely responsive - really liked her Tuesday updates. They know the market well, and we couldn't recommend them more highly. Thanks guys!!
