Sellers: As we negotiate your transaction, I'll not only work to get the very best sales price, but I'll also campaign for limited closing costs. And once we've come to an agreement, I'll fully explain the closing costs so you know exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: If you're purchasing a house in Islamorada, you will 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 a suitable range so you're not stunned when you arrive at the closing appointment. I'll be happy to go over the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem off.
