Be Smart and Use BuySmart Realty To Purchase Your Next Home


Whether a first time homebuyer or your next home purchase, I would love the honor of assisting you with the search for and purchase of your perfect home anywhere in the Raleigh area!  As a licensed Realtor® since 1994, I have assisted hundreds of people find and purchase their dream home.  I have never charged a homebuyer for my services nor do I ever intend to.  PLUS.. I will even credit you with up to 35% of my commission (paid by the seller) towards your closing costs and/or purchase of a Home Warranty!  This could mean thousands of dollars to you towards the purchase! *

Considering  new construction? I started my real estate career as an “onsite” new home sales specialist and can assure you that the majority of builders do not lower their prices because you come to them without a Buyer’s agent.  In fact, most builders prefer you have an agent because of the experience we bring to assist  the buyer understanding the new home purchase process.

Worried about financing ?? 

There is zero charge to get pre-qualified for a mortgage loan and in the vast majority of cases no hit to your credit history for these type of inquiries. Many areas in the Triangle area also qualify for 100% USDA financing.  Couple that with the possibility of MCC credit , a tax free incentive from the Federal Government  providing assistance with lowering your mortgage payment, and you may be surprised how affordable owning a home may be. If active duty or a veteran, a VA loan may be perfect for you.  I can set you up with a local, well qualified mortgage lender who would be happy to confidentially discuss all mortgage options available to you at no charge and with no obligation. 

My Role as your Buyer’s Agent!

As your personal Buyer’s agent, I view my role as making your home purchase experience as enjoyable and stress free as possible! I’m even willing to help you with a portion of your closing costs and/or home Warranty !   Besides helping you search for and viewing homes, I can assist you with finding a great local mortgage lender; negotiating offers with sellers; working through home inspections and interacting with closing attorneys.  I represent you throughout the entire home purchase process and will be by your side at the closing table. I especially take great pride in and enjoy working with first time home buyers!  I believe in educating them throughout the entire process so they truly feel comfortable with their first home purchase. 

Begin Your Home Search Now

You can start your home purchase journey right now by using the home search tool below. If you have trouble finding homes that meet your criteria or have special requirements in a home, please contact me to do a personal search for you on the local Multiple Listing System.  I can also set you up with your own personal search that will automatically email you any new listing(s) matching your specific criteria the minute a matching home hits the market.  This is an absolutely FREE service that I provide to potential buyers!

Important Reading!

As a buyer or seller, you need to understand the three different classifications of  real estate agent agency ( Buyer Agency, Seller Agency and Dual Agency).  Upon first significant contact with a REALTOR®, you will be given the Working With Real Estate Agents pamphlet  to read and discuss. You will also be asked to sign an acknowledgment of receipt which is nothing more than a confirmation that you have been given this information in writing. This is NOT a contract NOR does it bind you to the agent/Realtor who gave it to you; which is clearly stated on the form.

Any fees paid at closing by BuySmart Realty MUST be approved by your lender and shown on the closing statement.  Example:  Purchase price of home = $250,000.  Historical commission amount paid to a Buyer’s agent for this area is 2.4% of sales price which equals $6,000.  35% equals up to $2100 credited to you at closing to be used towards your closing costs per your lender’s instructions. Paying all cash for a home simply requires amount be placed on the closing statement.  

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or for any assistance.  Ernie Behrle, BuySmart Realty,  Phone/Text: 919-795-5447,  email :   or use the contact form below.
