Contract to Closing

It’s both exciting and stressful negotiating a real estate purchase contract. Once it’s signed by the sellers, buyers can relax a bit, but I can’t. There are still more negotiations, document deliveries, inspections, title details and mortgage tasks to be accomplished to reach a successful closing and walk away with the keys to your new real estate property.

There are more than 50 specific due dates and tasks on our average transaction checklist, but an overview of a few includes:

  • Post contract delivery of documents to the title company and ordering of a title binder or commitment.
  • Deposit of earnest money and delivery of receipt to the buyer client.
  • Helping my buyers to order inspections and coordinating them and providing access to assure they’re completed on time.
  • Coordinating timely delivery of any documents objecting to disclosures, inspection results, or title binder issues discovered.
  • Coordinating appraisal and appraiser access.
  • Working with mortgage company and coordinating delivery of documents they require.
  • Assisting my buyers with any negotiations related to contingencies, inspections or documents.
  • Constant monitoring of status of all processes at the title company.

There are a number of companies and people involved in a real estate transaction, including attornies, surveyors, appraiser, title company, mortgage broker, lender, loan underwriter, both agents, and possibly others. Each has specific duties and requirements, and each is concentrating on doing a good job for you. However, their focus is narrow, targeted on their specific niche in the deal. As your buyer agent, I'm your “go-to” resource to bring it all together. I'm here to coordinate the activities of all of these companies and people for you.

I'm constantly monitoring those 50+ document delivery items and the work done by these people. Daily we check the progress against contractual deadlines and act on our project requirements. A lot of this activity goes on behind the scenes and you’re not even bothered. Some of it requires that we contact you and request documents or actions. Please understand that my overriding goal is a smooth transaction, and getting you through meeting all deadlines is one of our jobs. I’ll only bother you when necessary, telling you what I need and when, and moving you through to a successful closing.

There is a lot more, but those are the highlights, and many sub–tasks are related to each of them. I'm obsessed with proper follow–up and detailed coordination of every step of the closing process for my buyer clients. It’s critical that I make all deadlines and keep the transaction on track to avoid defaulting on any terms of the contract. I’ll keep your real estate transaction on track, and you’ll have the time and advice you need to assure you’ve covered all of the bases prior to closing.

  • Maggie Dokic is a fabulous agent and if you are buying a home, this is the woman to speak with! Not only is she ALWAYS on time (which for her is 10 minutes early) but she also is constantly in your corner and putting 100% into finding you your dream home. She is a great communicator and always responds to emails and phone calls immediately. Also, she will listen to what exactly it is that you are looking for and will work tirelessly to help you get it. Not only has she helped us buy and sell our last place, but she has worked with several of our family members as well, each one having the same great experience. We had very specific criteria that she helped us find along with the fact that we needed a place to accommodate our two 90 lb dogs. She was able to find places that fit our needs perfectly!

  • To the best Realtor, Maggie Dokic. Please dont mind this dirty envelope. It is my honest proof and good intentions of sending this long ago (the original envelope). I know you dont even believe what you are seeing. After one year and almost three months this crazy lady is sending a thank you. Maggie, there is no excuse that I can give for this late thank you because you did not deserve for this to be late at all. I dont believe that I could have gotten a better Realtor. With much thanks do I thank you for such a wonderful, QUICK and PROFITABLE sale of my home!!! Thank you so very much!!!
