Sellers: As we hammer out your transaction, not only will I work to get the optimal sales price, but I'll also advocate for limited closing costs. And once we've reached an agreement, I'll fully explain the closing costs so you are aware of exactly where your money is going.

Buyers: When buying real estate in Brunswick County, you'll receive 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 startled when you show up at the closing table. I'll be willing to look at the GFE with you, answering your questions and highlighting any estimates of concern.
