A Step-by-Step Guide to Buying a Home
After moving from San Jose to Morgan Hill in 2011, Christa and her husband quickly fell in love with the city’s amazing community. Being a first-time homebuyer in a new city drove Christa to capitalize on her human resources, sales, and marketing expertise to eventually become a real estate professional in 2017. Now, helping Bay Area homebuyers — newcomers, move-uppers, and downsizers — is her business.
Christa’s mastery of social media and cutting-edge technology has helped her deal with the challenges of buying and selling real estate. She encourages clients to take advantage of her high-tech resources in the form of virtual home tours, top-notch photography, and a real-time market presence. Her Instagram and YouTube channel feature informative and instructional videos that offer helpful tips for both buyers and sellers. Relationships are at the core of Christa’s business, so she’s continually looking for new and innovative ways to better serve her clients.

This is quite possibly the largest purchase you have made, and I am here to guide you with market data, confidence and maybe a few silly dance breaks along the way :) My dynamic team and I are always here to help, now let’s get started!

Our Team is committed to developing a path for everyone to benefit from homeownership no matter what life stage they are in. As Real Estate Experts, we at Onyx Wealth Realty know that the right real estate decisions are life-changing.
While all other real estate companies are largely composed of newer agents that have little experience and no training in negotiations, every agent on our team has extensive experience and is both a Neighborhood Expert and a Certified Negotiation Expert, certified in the same curriculum taught at Harvard Law. These skills, combined with our steadfast commitment to serving the needs of our clients as trusted advisors and true fiduciaries, create our award-winning formula for producing a best-in-class client experience and exceptional outcome.
Submit your loan application and supporting documents, run your credit report, get pre-approved, and learn your loan options.
Find and visit properties you’re interested in that fit within your budget. If you find a home you like, make an offer. Your loan submission gets sent to the lender and the underwriting process begins.
A third party will temporarily hold money until a particular condition has been met, such as the fulfillment of a purchase agreement. Once final approval is given and the loan documents are recorded, the purchase is complete.
Breathe, take it all in, grab your loved ones and your celebratory drink or treat of choice. It’s time to celebrate.
You’ll find me in my downtime running in local races, wine tasting or out at the park with my family. I believe in true client relationships, no matter the size of the transaction. Contact me today!
