If you are thinking that you may want to buy a home, often the first step is to set up a time to talk with a Realtor who’s active in the areas you think may be a fit for your budget, commute, space needs, and more.
If you’d like to talk with me, please call or email me and we’ll set something up (don’t worry, I’m not pushy in the least, and there’s no obligation). Often that appointment can help potential home buyers to get a lot of questions answered and to get started on a good foot. Usually there’s a short (10 or 15 minute) conversation by phone, and then a meeting in person.
Want to research on your own first? Many do. On my blogs, especially SanJoseRealEstateLosGatosHomes.com, I have a tremendous number of articles about home buying, first time home buyer questions, multiple offer strategies, lending questions, neighborhood profiles, plus area specific real estate market reports. My LiveInLosGatosBlog has the best info on LG neighborhoods you can find anywhere, but it also includes events, market reports, etc.
Here are a couple of links to get you started:

Looking to buy a home in the Silicon Valley area? Silicon Valley is a huge region, encompassing all of Santa Clara County, most of San Mateo County, and a little each of Santa Cruz County and Alameda County. Narrowing where you want to purchase – at least to an area of a few square miles – should be an early priority.
Below, please browse actively listed properties for sale. You can move the map around to see all listed properties for sale. The starting point is in the San Jose area since that’s primarily where I work selling real estate.
My service area is primarily Santa Clara County (San Jose, Los Gatos, Saratoga, Campbell, Santa Clara, Cupertino, Sunnyvale, and nearby areas), but at times I will also sell in the adjacent counties. If I am unable to assist you to buy a home in an area for any reason, I will be happy to connect you with a partner agent who is knowledgeable and experienced also, and who shares my approach to real estate and client service.
