TEAM UP WITH A REALTOR® Your REALTOR® will assist with info on special assessments, taxes, lots available, plans to compare, and builder promotions. Going directly to the builder usually doesn’t save you money.
KNOW YOUR BUILDER Get references from those who have worked with the builder and make sure you see their unfinished & finished product.
COMPARISON SHOP If you are getting bids from more than one builder, remember to compare apples to apples. Just because two homes have similar amenities, doesn’t mean they are the same quality.
KNOW WHAT IS INCLUDED Get everything in writing that is included in your build. Some common items are appliances, washer/dryer, window coverings, sod/hydro seed, final grade vs rough grade yard, deck, and sidewalks.
KNOW YOUR ALLOWANCES An allowance is the amount of money the builder sets aside for things such as appliances, lighting, flooring and more. Your REALTOR® will explain what it means if you are over or under budget.
KNOW SQUARE FOOTAGE Check out some model homes and decide the size of rooms you need. Don’t forget about closets and storage too!
DOCUMENTATION Keep good notes and all of your receipts for lighting, appliances, etc.
BE PREPARED FOR DELAYS Weather, waiting for sub-contractors, or visiting the job site too often could cause delays in the construction of the home. Have a backup housing plan if your home is not completed on time.
THINK RESALE! Choose a good location and plan to make your home desirable for resale down the road.
BE PREPARED FOR OVERAGES All upgrades will be charged to you, which may change your mortgage payment. Get all changes in writing and know that it may cause a delay and/or up-charge from your builder. Be aware that too many upgrades can cause appraisal issues.
Jamie was wonderful to work with both in selling our home and buying our new one. She helped us to do both safely and quickly during the quarantine. She answered all of our questions and shared her knowledge to ease any concerns that popped up for us throughout the process. We highly recommend Jamie for anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

We had an extended and frustrating house hunting experience due to set backs selling our house in SD and to disagreements about what we wanted in the house we were purchasing. Jamie was phenomenal at finding us houses to look at, digging for any information we asked for, and sticking with us through the process! She was patient and encouraging from start to finish! I would definitely recommend Park Co Realtors and would use them again!

Thank you Jamie and Park Company for a job well done! ?

I previously worked with jamie through my employer so I was fortunate to see all sides she juggles from a realtor perspective. I referred her to two of our children who used her for their home purchases. She is the perfect mix of being professional, yet not pushy and very comfortable to tell your concerns and excitement too. She is the real deal and feel fortunate we have her as our realtor but also now as our friend. Park Co is lucky to have her.

Jamie was awesome!!! The house I sold was the first home I had ever owned and I had lived there for almost sixteen years so at times I had a hard time parting with the home. I met with Jamie in May or June 2019 and she gave me some suggestions on changes, when I got those all made we met in January of 2020 and signed the listing paperwork. The townhouse went on the MLS in the afternoon of February 17th and by the afternoon of the 20th I had two full price offers!!! I was shocked as my neighbors had been listed for a week or two before mine at the exact same price and is still for sale. The closing was scheduled for April 10th, it was 53 days from listing to closing! Plus with a pandemic going Jamie had things go smoothly!
When I buy my next home I will be using Jamie and I am referring her to all my friends!!!

Our realtor Jamie was great. She helped us navigate the difficult journey of buying a home out of state. We didn’t have a whole lot of time and distance was an issue, but Jamie was such a help and stayed in constant contact with us. She answered all of our questions and provided us with all the information we needed to find a home that was just right for us.

I cannot express enough gratitude for Jamie and Kelly during this whole process of selling our daycare! They went over and above their call of duty with this one! Unfortunately, the other party's side did not do much of anything the entire time of the sale process, so in order for things to happen, Jamie and Kelly had to do a lot of "over time" work to make this sale happen. They were patient with me and always had an ear or four to listen to our frustrations regarding the other party. During this entire time they remained professional and knew that in order for things to go ok, they needed to do extra work. They were incredibly knowledgeable and were able to answer any questions we had. They were punctual at getting paperwork done and sent to us in a timely fashion and made sure we always "dotted our i's and crossed our t's" to make sure we weren't missing something. I will forever be grateful for what Jamie and Kelly did for us! Thank you!

Jamie went up to bat for us, allowing my wife and i to continue focusing on our careers and packing for the move.
