Look for a home on the San Antonio MLSVisit my blog

Search San Antonio listings to your heart's content. Here are some to get you started.

If you want listings from the Central Texas MLS (New Braunfels, Canyon Lake, Seguin, and San Marcos), just contact me with your requirements and I'll send them to you.

What you can expect from me as your agent
First, you get my commitment to your best interests. I'll help you find a home in the price range and neighborhood you're comfortable with. I'll help you with contract negotiations, arrange for inspections and any repairs, locate a mortgage lender, and arrange for the survey, home warranty, and title work. All the way up to closing, I'll be the point of contact among you and all the other parties involved.

I have worked with a lot of military folks and families. I’ve made many moves myself, including across both the Pacific and the Atlantic. I understand the stress and anxiety of moving to a new place and a new posting! Scroll down to read what my clients think about working with me.

Let's work together
Without a signed agreement, the buyer's agent technically works for the seller, since my commission typically comes from the seller at closing. Please be ready to work with me at the beginning of our home search so I can represent you fully. If you would like to review the simple one-page agreement I use, let me know, and I'll send it to you.

I can also show you homes for sale by owner (FSBOs) and new homes, representing you with the builder in the subdivision you choose. Home builders rely on agents to bring them buyers, and I will be working for you throughout the construction process to make sure they build your home right.

I represent investors, too
If you're a real estate investor, San Antonio should be on top of your list. With a brisk rental market, growing economy, and low cost of living, investment properties such as single-family homes, condos, and multi-family properties are very affordable. If you're considering a 1031 exchange, contact me to find out more about the market.

I'll help you find suitable properties for your portfolio. I can recommend strategies to help you achieve your goals, but the final decision on what to buy and how much to pay is always yours. As your buyer's agent, I represent you, not the seller. Let's get started!

What my clients say

Steve Kiel had some kind words about me on his blog, the Property Pundit.

Mere words cannot express our gratitude and appreciation for your help,advice, kindness, honesty and professionalism in conducting the purchase. Again, thank you from Malaysia and I know the boys will enjoy living in their own home and keeping it warm. God bless.
—Kok Kiong Lai
Thank you so much for all of the hard work and effort you put into finding my family the perfect house. You were the third or fourth agent I talked to when I was looking for someone to help me in my home purchase, and I knew immediately you were the one for us. You were honest, very responsive and extremely helpful from the beginning. You didn't try to sell us a house that was out of our budget like most agents do, and instead you found us the perfect house in our budget the very first day we went out. Not only did you get us the house for way less than the sales price, but also negotiated to get us the other things that we wanted as well.... On top of that you found us the perfect lender, that was ethical and extremely hard-working for us. You were there day and night when I called (and we both know I called a lot) to answer my questions and go that extra mile for us.

We couldn't be happier with our purchase and will tell anyone we know that is looking for a house to give you a call. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, and we couldn't have made it without you!
—Dale and Calli Owens

I suppose we were asleep when the settlement actually occurred in San Antonio and I imagine you don't have too many buyers who sleep through settlement! Then again, you probably don't have too many buyers who live on the other side of the world.

Anyway, it was a real pleasure working with you and we want to thank you for everything you did to make this transaction go so smoothly.
—Chris Baker
