Understand the process.

Buying real estate is a complex matter and can be especially confusing for the first-time homebuyer. Do yourself a favor and learn as much about the process as you can before you begin. There are plenty of resources on the Internet, and most real estate offices will have pamphlets to explain things in plain language. You may also be able to research the real estate process by attending community-sponsored classes, or you can take a look at books like Home Buying For Dummies by Eric Tyson and Ray Brown, (IDG Books Worldwide, Inc.)

Use a REALTOR(R).

As a buyer, it usually costs nothing to hire a real estate professional to help you find and purchase a home--your Realtor will likely get a portion of the commission the seller pays to his Realtor. When choosing an agent, get referrals from friends, relatives, and co-workers, and then interview as many agents as possible. Pick an agent that works in the neighborhoods you're interested in. Listen to your agent, but make your own decision.

Figure out your finances.

That means determining how much money you can raise for your down payment and how much you can afford to pay on a monthly basis. Go to a lender to find out the size of mortgage you qualify for and get pre-approved. Better yet, use a mortgage broker to find you the best mortgage rate possible. When calculating the costs of home ownership, remember to plan for homeowner's insurance, property taxes, private mortgage insurance (if required), utilities, repairs, and maintenance.

Helped me rent a home.

We worked with Claudia for two months trying to find a home in South Florida because we were abroad where we were working. Claudia helped us to rent a house we wanted and also helped getting things fixed in the house by the landlord and always replied to my emails/texts/phone calls ASAP. Great lady, good attitude and knows what she’s doing. Claudia is very easy to get in touch with and she's a very easy person to like.  More Less

Bought a home in 2014.

I have been an investor since long time ago, and have dealt with hundreds of real estate agents. I have never found one more knowledgeable, responsive, and hardworking than Claudia Rubio. We met her when she was the listing agent on a property we were thinking about buying, and were very impressed with her knowledge and demeanor. We told her we were looking for an investment property, and asked her to let us know if she had anything that might fit our needs. She responded with several places, went with us to look at them, and we chose one of them. I am tremendously impressed with her, she is a top-notch professional.

Claudia listed and rented my investment condo the first days on the market. Her attention to detail and expertise has made all the difference. I recommend Claudia to anyone who is in the market to list and rent, buy or sell real estate investment in South Florida. Her expertise is unsurpassed, and you will never be jerked around. She is very knowledgeable in all local markets, and current market trends, which will ensure you get a customer at the right price without losing out to other competing offers

Helped me rent a home.

Claudia was extremely helpful and patient as we searched for our perfect rent family home, we looked in about a dozen different neighborhoods. We found ourselves in a situation towards the end of our search considering multiple homes and bidding against other renters. Claudia made this process as easy as possible for us and we are thrilled with our new home and neighborhood. I highly recommend Claudia.  More Less
