Whether you’re a first-time buyer or on your sixth purchase, the process can be complex and it helps to have an idea of the steps you’ll go through to get to closing day.
I start by listening. As your buyer’s agent, I know the best way to help you is to take the time to understand you and your family’s goals, needs and wants. I also take seriously our discussions around the financial implications of a home purchase, and one of the first things I recommend you do is talk with a lender if you plan to finance some of your new home. Getting pre-qualified so you know what kind of home you can afford is critical to kicking off the process right.
As a buyer, you are in the unique position of having someone else (the seller) pay the commission for your agent (who represents you and your wishes exclusively). And, as your buyer’s agent, I can help you buy ANY house — one listed by another company, one you saw at an open house, or one listed as a FSBO.
“A PLEASURE TO WORK WITH!…”
“Stacey was a pleasure to work with. She came highly recommended from my close friend and I can see why. She was extremely professional, courteous, knowledgeable and took the time to listen to what I wanted. I look forward to using her services again if needed and I will definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a real estate agent.”
– Sandra Hicks
“SO EASY TO WORK WITH…!”
“It was such a pleasure to have Stacey as our realtor. All of her actions needed to complete the purchase of our home were professional, timely and thorough. She always did exactly what she said she would do for us. She responded to email messages, text messages and phone calls almost immediately no matter what time of the day it was. Plus she is so easy to work with and makes you feel like you are her only client.”
-Terry & Pam Cobb
“We sold our home “FSBO.” Stacey was working for the buyers of our home, not us. Clearly, Stacey had her clients best interest in mind but she was such a great listener, professional, knowledgeable and a great resource to us as well. She earned our respect very early on in the process.
Stacey is so very prompt with returning phone calls, texts and/or emails. She never keeps you waiting. She worked with the title company to expedite the closing in record time to satisfy her client as well as us. Her respect for both sides of the isle is why I would give her a 10+++. In fact, I wish I had met Stacey prior to our search for a home. She truly is the example of the PERFECT Realtor!!!
I thank Stacey for making the process an enjoyable one.”

“An absolute pleasure…”
“I started my house purchasing process with another agent and found myself hopelessly performing all of the searches in a vicious sellers’ market. None of the houses in her search lists matched my requirements and were in areas I didn’t want. Prospective houses I wanted were quickly under contract by others before I could even get a foot in the door. After three frustrating months, I dismissed that first agent and contacted Stacey after a coworker’s positive referral. I was immediately impressed by her standard procedure of interviewing you to determine exactly what kind of property you desire. Every search result from Stacey matched exactly what I was looking for and we found a home for me within the first week. During the contract process, I was kept informed every step along the way and was enthralled by her diligence. She keeps a full contact list of qualified home inspectors, contractors and engineers, and will organize and schedule everything in accordance with you. When I suggested during the negotiation that a cost estimate on a garage roof replacement would be helpful, Stacey contacted a roofer and received a quote within the next day. She oversaw all the requested repairs to verify that they were completed and provided me a detailed list showing everything that was performed and which were outstanding. She also kept in contact with bank in regards to my loan to ensure that everything was on schedule. For example, a hiccup arose with the title company that was threatening to extend the closing date, she took care of it immediately before I was even aware of the issue. I’m proud to say that my home purchase went extremely well and on schedule. Working with Stacey was an absolute pleasure and you will never find a more diligent and outgoing person.”
“THIS EXPERIENCE HAS BEEN TRULY DELIGHTFUL!”
“For anyone looking for a realtor I would highly recommend Stacey Saladin. I decided to move from California to Kansas and Stacey has made this purchase and move so very easy for my family. Stacey looked at the property since I was in California and told me her honest opinion about it. She proceeded to take my adult daughters to look at the house and I was able to purchase this house without even seeing based on her judgement and my daughters assessment of the house. Even after we started escrow Stacey kept in touch with me and guided me through every step. Stacey kept me informed as to the progress of the sellers’ repairs. Stacey also checked to see how I was doing in selling my house in California and offered suggestions when I had some issues with the realtor in California.
Stacey made the entire process of buying a house from out of state so simple, easy and pleasant and I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in buying a house. Stacey has looked out for my best interests in buying this house and I am very thankful that Stacey Saladin was the realtor that I used for the purchase of this house. This experience has been truly delightful and I can’t say enough about how wonderful Stacey has been during this process.
