"Johann was very sensitive to our specific needs: he's a real professional; personable and easy to work with. He helped us buy our home and two investment properties, and we recommend him wholeheartedly." Linda Goodhew, Boulder
Buying a Home You'll Love
"Johann knows the Boulder real estate market inside and out, and he has an invaluable network of professionals (inspectors, insurance agents, contractors, etc.). We purchased a Boulder condo long-distance from Alaska, and he made the process as easy as if we were there. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Johann and would choose him again in a heartbeat." Greg McDuffie, Anchorage
If you are considering buying a home or investment property in Boulder or Boulder County, let's talk. My services cost you nothing (the listing agent pays me), and my expertise will save you money, often tens of thousands of dollars.
I have lived in Boulder since 1976 and became a Realtor in 2001, and I know the Boulder real estate market. I work exclusively with buyers, offering a personal, full service alternative to large offices. With my low overhead, I may even be able to rebate part of my commission back to you, saving you even more money.
The benefits of working with me as a Buyer's Broker or Buyer's Agent (same thing) are far beyond rebates. The process of purchasing a home you love involves important steps that require experience and expertise.
Learning: Understanding what you need and want, what you like and don’t, what you can afford, and what is available in the Boulder real estate market, is a learning process. As your Buyer's Agent I will help guide you through this process of seeing, discussing, and evaluating needs, wants and properties (virtually and in person) until there is clarity and understanding. I have also been helping people invest in rental property for many years, totally understand the factors and numbers, and can set you up with effortless property management as well. Why accept less than 1% from the bank when owning a rental can yield a completely turnkey 8-9% annual tax advantaged profit.
Finding: Once we are clear on what you want, you will know it when you see it, and can then act with confidence. I will never try and sell you anything (I don't sell real estate, I help people buy it) but will keep searching until we find the home you really want to make an offer on.
Negotiating: This is where my abilities to uncover the seller’s motivations and negotiate the best possible price, concessions and terms can save you real money. Colorado law states that only a Buyer's Broker, not a Transaction Broker, can do this for you, and I will. (See next page.)
Getting to Closing: While most real estate contracts close, Murphy’s Law usually operates at some point. My expertise and experience will prevent or resolve issues quickly, so you can move into your new home on the date you planned.
Here you will find much important information to inform and empower you, the buyer. Real estate is the largest purchase most people ever make. To find out more about how you can save money and avoid pitfalls, give me a call or email.
"I used Johann Robbins as my buyer's broker. Johann performed invaluably throughout the negotiation process, and helped with my lender and appraiser when they made errors that could have killed the deal. Johann is very smart and diligent and gave us a lot of energy and time. He has a rare degree of real estate savvy, and I recommend him highly.”
