HI, I'M FALYN dodd AND I WOULD LOVE TO HELP YOU BUY YOUR FIRST HOME.

What you get with me.

I am genuinely here to help YOU as a first time home buyer. There is no catch! When you close on your home you don't even have to worry about realtor fees, the seller is who pays!

I want to help because I was there too. I had all of your same questions and concerns. I didn't even know how to call to set up our electricity or gas. I had ALL of the "dumb questions," and have walked a mile in your shoes. So, there's nothing you can say or ask that will surprise me. I get it.

I will be here with you every step of the way, including the "after phase" because there are still questions that come up after you have purchased your first home. You will also receive my exclusive "How to Guide" that I made with all of the answers to the questions I had, and what you should do based on your new area.

Lastly, after you have purchased your first home with me, I have created a Loyalty Program to help you with the process of your second home. I will list to sell your first home for HALF of the price most realtors charge AND help you find your "new number two" for free! My goal is to be your long-time partner.

Why should i buy instead of rent?

Buying can be cheaper. 
I know it doesn't seem like it upfront, but here are 5 reasons why buying is a much better option. 
  1. Your mortgage can be cheaper than rent - mine was $300 less a month! That's $3,600 extra a year in savings!  
  2. Tax benefits - mortgage interest deduction is only the beginning! 
  3. Freedom to do whatever you want - get Pinterest creative! 
  4. First Time Home Buyers Program - you don't need 20% in down payment!
  5. You're putting your money towards an investment. Instead of throwing it away towards rent, you can get it back - ask me about my story!

my first time home buying experience

Hey friends! I am a realtor, dog mom, DIY enthusiast, and not only want to help you find your first home, but to get to know YOU and the lifestyle YOU dream of having. So, what is your dream? I mean shoot for the stars with this question, because it can be possible!  

Buying your first home is investing in something you can actually live in! This investment is the first stepping stone into that dream. Think of it like another form of a savings account except it's not as easy to just "switch" that money into your checking through your online banking app for that fancy memory foam dog bed your fur baby just HAD to have.

Purchasing your first home can be a confusing, stressful, and overwhelming process. You continue to ask yourself, "Am I ready for this?", "How can I afford it?", and all of the "What if's" that come in between. Well, that's what I am here for. I became a realtor to help you because I have been in your position, and want to share with you everything that I have learned.

I lived in Oklahoma my entire life except for the year and a half that I moved to Texas (where what seems as if almost everyone from OK moves to at some point in their life), and realized how much I wanted to be back with my family. So, I canceled my apartment lease, ended that nearly endless cycle of tossing my money away each month, just to move in with my parents....YAAAAY! Could you hear that sarcasm?

I was extremely happy and grateful to be able to move back while in between living situations, but after a few months, I decided it was finally time to find my own place. Luckily for me, my mom is also a realtor. She helped me find the perfect first home, and did you know you can receive money from a First Time Home Buyers Program to go towards your down payment? Well, I didn't until my incredible lender explained everything to me. 

I was so lucky to qualify to receive 3.5% to go towards the purchase of my first home, and with some amazing negotiating skills, $7,000 in closing costs, a new roof, AND new gutters!

So, that's why I am here. I want to help you experience everything and more that I was so lucky to see in my first time home buying process.
