Home Buyer Seminars

Each Free First Time Home Buyer seminar is taught by a mortgage professional and one of our real estate agents. These are NOT sales presentations, they are true seminars. We guarantee the authenticity of the class. Topics include preapprovals, contracts, listing sheets, negotiations, attorneys, home inspections, real estate taxes, home owner’s associations as well as questions and answers.

What We Do

Since 2004, StartingPoint Realty has been focused on one thing: the first-time homebuyer. It’s unusual for a real estate agency to be dedicated to this market. We don’t make as much money per transaction as other agencies, we hold a lot of hands, we deal with client uncertainty. Are we crazy? Maybe, but that’s o.k.

From Our Clients

"Ryan was a breath of fresh air"

We contacted Ryan when a friend recommended him to us. We had had a bad experience with a previous transaction that ended up falling through and caused us to lose our earnest money, so we were naturally wary of the process and of agents and attorneys.

"Kelly was an absolute pleasure to work with"

She really made sure that we were happy and that we had all of our questions and concerns answered. She even showed up to a second showing the morning of her birthday (we ended up purchasing that home). We were scared going into this process as first time home buyers and she really helped ease all of our worries.

"Couldn’t have done it without StartingPoint Realty"

She was very good at helping me navigate multiple options and keeping my eye on the prize when I got nervous or confused. Kelly was very engaged and friendly, but frank, and it really made the whole thing less of a chore

"We are forever grateful to Ryan for staying the course"

From the get go, Ryan put us at ease. There was no BS, schmoozing or over-selling. He was caring, straight-forward and most importantly, knowledgeable. He came with strong recommendations from other close friends and we were excited to work with him.

"We can only hope that more people get to work with Ryan"

When my fiancé and I decided to buy a house, we were pretty clueless, but help was on the way! After attending one of StartingPoint Realty’s Home Buying Seminars, we started our home buying journey with the greatest guide we could have ever hoped for…Ryan Gable!!!! There aren’t enough good things that we can say about Ryan.

"We could not have picked a more perfect agent"

We didn’t know the first thing about buying a home and were terrified of the thought of the home buying process. We stumbled upon StartingPoint Realty through various internet searches and are so glad we did. Ryan took the time to meet with us to go over our options, answered all our questions and provided us with some very helpful information.

From the Founder

Our clients don’t want an appointment setter and door opener. Someone texting others when showing a house. They want to be educated, they want an advocate throughout the process.  They want the experience to be exciting, efficient, and focused on them.  Our culture is built around listening, being proactive, and ensuring our clients possess a framework as to how this works, before they even walk into their first showing.
