Hello! I’m Alicia, a licensed REALTOR with HomeSmart International Brokerage.
I have an amazing family that has been the most fulfilling part of my life! I’m honored to be apart of a family (immediate and extended) who has served in the United States Armed Forces. I moved to Arizona and fell in love with the sunshine and the mild winters in 2009. When I have me time, I love to travel, go to the movies, try new restaurants, and binge out on Netflix!
I have an extensive background in customer service and I pride myself on providing extraordinary customer service, and treating everyone I encounter the way I want to be treated. My approach is service with integrity, diligence, and disclosure. My personal strengths are attention to details, time management, and my organizational skills.
Finding a new home can be one of the most exciting and stressful times of one’s life. My goal is to provide my clients with everything they need to make the process as simple and easy as possible. If you choose me as your REALTOR, I’ll go above and beyond to sell or find your next home.
In general, buyers are entitled to conduct a series of inspections on the property they are about to purchase. After your offer has been accepted, your HomeSmart Agent will assist you in hiring a professional home inspector to conduct an inspection of the property. At HomeSmart, we recommend you choose a home inspector that is certified by a trade association.
Some of the items typically investigated during an inspection are: appliances, plumbing, A/C, heating, electrical, structure, foundation, roof and attic. If any of the following are areas of concern, you can ask your inspector to address concerns regarding indoor air quality, expansive soil conditions, previous fire or flood, pests and mold. If you are obtaining a loan, your Lender may require specific inspections, such as an inspection to certify that the home is free of wood-destroying organisms.
It is around this time you can expect to be provided with a Property Disclosure Statement from the Seller, which contains all information material to the sale of the property. Your HomeSmart Agent will ask you to read through it carefully and ask any questions you might have during your inspection period.
Additional inspections you may want to consider are: a survey to determine where property lines are located, and a claims report, which gives Buyers the past insurance claim history on the property (a factor which can effect the cost of your homeowner's insurance).
In addition to formal inspections, Buyers should consider other methods of obtaining information about the property. For example, talk to the neighbors and drive around the neighborhood during different times of day. In touring the neighborhood, consider things such as proximity to freeways, airports and schools.
Your HomeSmart Agent can also provide you with resources for obtaining information on crime statistics, city planning and zoning, school information and environmental concerns which may affect your decision to purchase.
