Sellers: As we negotiate your sale, not only will I work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also advocate for lower closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll describe in detail the closing costs so you know exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: If you're purchasing real estate in Dallas County, you will be given a "Loan Estimate" (LE) of closing costs within three days of submitting your loan application. The estimate is based on the loan officer's prior experience and is required to be within an acceptable range so you're not shocked when you arrive at closing time. I'll be happy to look at the LE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates that seem off.
