Sellers: As we get through the details of your sale, not only will I work to get the highest sales price, but I'll also campaign for lower closing costs. And once we've arrived at an agreement, I'll fully explain the closing costs so you are informed of exactly what you're paying for.

Buyers: When purchasing real estate in Santa Fe County, 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 prior experience and is required to be within a tolerable range so you're not astonished when you arrive at the closing table. I'll be glad to review the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates in question.
