Listing Description

Real Estate Agent

Fee Schedule

Completely negotiable.
The only time a realtor gets paid is when a house is sold and closed.
Even if you only have questions, that is free.

Payment Options

Typically, through your bank (e.g., mortgage), private funding, etc. However you got the finances. Karissa can refer and connect you with sources as well.

Eligibility Requirements

N/A. Karissa highly suggests that you do not need to be ready to buy a house to access services. It is better to meet with a realtor before you’re ready and ask the right questions beforehand to adequately prepare you for when you are ready to buy a home.

Documents To Provide

At point of purchase would need government ID.

Questions You May Be Asked

A lot of what they go into is what are your goals, where do you want to be living, budget, what are you looking for? This doesn’t have to be figured out necessarily; they can help you. All you have to know is that you want to buy a house in the future.

Questions To Ask

What area do you work in most frequently? (e.g., Kitchener-Waterloo vs. Toronto)

Things To Note

The area you’d like to move into, budget, types of details in the home you’d like (e.g., garage), personal details (e.g., do you have kids) to get to know you and cater their business to your lifestyle.

Expected Outcome

You have all of your questions answered, so you can see yourself buying a house in the future or now. Not everyone is near ready to be buying a house.

Privacy Policy

Available upon request.
