Whether you are a first-time home buyer, an experienced home buyer or a real estate investor, we at Bethany Real Estate and Investments always put your interest first. For the foreign real estate investor, we have created a special website that caters for their needs, www.BuyHomeInUS.com.

Buying a home can be one of the most important decisions in a persons life. We therefore take our role as a Real Estate Broker seriously and we represent your interest the best way we can, throughout the real estate buying/investment process.

We offer the highest quality of service to our clients. We pride ourselves on the way we do business. Our core values are:

  • Honesty and Integrity
  • Trust and Experience
  • Service

Whether it is in the Bay Area or the Greater Sacramento area, we will provide you with the latest comprehensive information that will help you to identify the properties that will best suit your needs.We will then help you negotiate with Sellers, Lenders, etc. to get you the best deal possible. We also link you with you with Banks, Mortgage Brokers, Termite Inspectors, Home Inspectors, Contractors, Termite Inspectors, and other service providers that will help you to close the deal efficiently and in the most cost effective fashion.

Here are some of the steps we will take to find your perfect home:


Determine Your Wants and Needs

This is the single most important step. By asking you a series of questions we will establish what you are looking for. My goal is to not waste your time by looking at properties that are not in your price range or homes that don't meet your needs. Throughout the buying process we will maintain your confidentiality and represent your best interests.

Help You Get Pre-Qualified

This step will show you how much you can afford.  This is accomplished by speaking with your financial institution and establishing what monthly payments you will be comfortable with. Many sellers will not proceed with an offer until they know they are dealing with someone who is pre-qualified. We'll help you get there quickly!

Finding the Right Home

We will use our powerful search programs and the latest real estate technology tools to find the properties that match your search parameters.  We can send them to you immediately via e-mail so that you can browse them at your leisure. We will disclose all known facts about the property that are likely to affect your decision. When we find the home that meets your criteria, I will assist you in writing an offer and act as a liaison between you and the seller.
