Sellers: As we negotiate your sale, I'll not only work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also push for limited closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll fully explain the closing costs so you are informed of exactly where your money is going. 


Buyers: When buying a house in Berrien County, you'll be given a "Good Faith Estimate" (GFE) of closing costs within three days of submitting your loan application. The estimate is based on the loan officer's past experiences and is required to be within an acceptable range so you're not startled when you show up at the closing table. I'll be willing to look through the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem unusual.
