Hey Cancer - My Message to You

You accompany me wherever I go,
whatever I do, every day.
You alter my schedule with
doctors appointments, tests,
infusions, injections supplements.

But here’s the truth.
I beat you every day, and have since June, 2009.
You can give up, because I will NOT!

I am free to think my thoughts,
to live my life, to be strong of mind and body
I will prevail.

I have so many incredible people in my life.
People that I can’t and won’t let down.

You see cancer, I got you, you don’t “got me”.
My spirit is stronger than you could ever be.

Home Owners Success Stories...

As a real estate professional and long time property owner and property investor, I have seen a vast array of real estate situations. People buying their first property, maybe a nice cozy condo. Then moving up to a single family home to raise a family and share with family and friends on those special occasions. Those who begin contemplating retirement and wanting to downsize or maybe to a different community or area to enjoy a slower pace of living.

Whatever direction you are going, I can help! In my 20 years of successful real estate endeavors and helping hundreds of others like you, I can offer great advice and effective selling of your home.

The process begins by you and I sitting down together and talking. Actually, you talk, I listen. You share your goals, your wants, your needs. Once I have a complete understanding, we will begin to strategize on how to achieve your wishes in the time frame that you desire.

Now, the EASY part . . . just call me at 619-686-5512 to schedule your FREE consultation.

Your Personal Real Estate Consultant,

5 Stress Relieving Tips for First-time Homebuyers

Moving into a new place is both exciting and challenging, and that is especially true if it’s you first time as a homeowner. Instead of allowing the process to overwhelm you, keep some tips in mind to help navigate through this exciting journey in your life.

Don’t Proceed Alone
You don’t need to take on the process of searching for and buying a home without assistance. Maintain contact with your realtor Tim Brodowski throughout the process. Tim can assist you in searching for the perfect property.

Open Your Mind
Right now, you may have a list of all the features that you want in a house. You may have decided that you will only live in the community with the lowest crime rate and the best schools. Keep in mind that all of these desires cost money and you probably do not have an unlimited budget. Instead of maintaining such a myopic view of your new home, open your mind to the possibility of making some concessions.

Define Your Financial Ability
Opting for a pre-approval is a good idea so you know how much of a loan you can receive approval for. Once you obtain that amount, you might decide to spend the maximum amount. Doing so will likely prove uncomfortable for your budget. If you or your partner lost your job, you might not have the ability to keep your house at all. Try to start small with your first house purchase and avoid spending money beyond your means.

Take Your Time
Once you decide that you are in the right place to buy a house, you might be so eager that you rush through the process. Weigh the pros and cons of each house you look at. If possible, plan an adequate amount of time around the buying process to ensure that you have considered all you best options.

Prepare for Other Expenses
You need to find out if you are expected to pay closing costs upfront or if you can roll them into your loan. Sometimes, the sellers may agree to pay for some of the closing costs. Not only do you need money for these expenses, but you’ll also need to cover other costs that are associated with moving into a new house.

Buying your first home can be both terrifying and wonderful all at once. Be prepared to invest in a financial investment like this by working with a professional like Tim Brodowski and making smart decisions. If home is where the heart is, allow yourself the time and care in finding the best possible place for you and your family.
