Home Buying Tips

In our experience, a house is not a dream home because of its size or color. It’s about how you feel when you walk through the front door – the way you can instantly see your life unfolding there. This is about more than real estate. It’s about your life and your dreams.



It’s important that the agent you choose to guide you through this journey is a trusted expert and advocate. At Kelly Pearson Realty Group, we have a team of experienced, qualified real estate professionals ready to help you find homes for sale that meet all of your criteria. Click here to meet our team!


After selecting the right agent for you, it’s important to ask yourself a series of questions relating to the kind of house you’re looking for. Here are a few questions our agents will ask you at the beginning of your home buying journey –
