Dallas Physician Real Estate and Relocation Services
Welcome to One-of-a-kind Dallas Real Estate Experience For Physicians
I am a licensed REALTOR® and a certified DRS Agent™ in Dallas, Texas and work with physicians, dentists and other medical professionals in Dallas Texas area and offer them real estate services including physician relocation support. I take my responsibility as your REALTOR® very seriously and go above and beyond to offer unmatched service, attention to your individual needs and ultimately the delivery of a new home that best fits your requirements and life style.
My focus is to serve busy medical professionals that are relocating to Dallas Forth Worth metro area (DFW) or doing a local move-up. I know firsthand, being married to a physician, that the demands of your physician career can often get in the way of finding the time to devote to searching for the perfect home to purchase. We bought our first home while my wife was finishing her residency and we have bought a few homes after that. I get what you’re going through! My goal is to provide you guidance at every step - whether you are a resident finishing your residency or whether you are an established medical professional.
My guiding principle is to cater to my client’s every need and my personalized approach has been designed with the goal of making selling or purchasing of a new home in the Dallas metro area hassle-free.
To help simplify physician home buying and selling experience, I have created the Dallas Physician Real Estate Portal. Also, you will find resources like Best Suburbs Near Dallas Hospitals, Dallas Suburb and community Guide, Physician Home Buying Guide, Home Buyer's Guide, Home Seller's Guide, Dallas Real Estate Blog and Monthly Dallas Real Estate Newsletter. These resources will help minimize the time you will need to devote to identify the exact home that fits your needs and budget, or they will help you market and sell your existing home for top dollar. The ultimate purpose is to streamline the Dallas home Buying or Selling Process, which will help save our physician clients their most valuable asset of all - time.
To excel at catering to the medical community, I have achieved the designation of a Certified DRS Agent™ – The Certified DRS Agent™ designation and network are committed to serving the real estate needs of the medical professional community through education and marketing resources. The DRS Agent Network is the only nationwide agent network working with medical professionals and certified with a Certified DRS Agent™ designation. The designation is limited to fewer than 1,000 real estate professionals nationwide, and clearly differentiates the abilities of member agents from their peers in serving needs of medical professionals.
I have been awarded CRS - Certified Residential Specialist - designation by Residential Real Estate Council (RRC). A CRS REALTOR® is part of the top 3 percent of real estate agents in the U.S.
I also hold the Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (AHLS) designation - a prestigious appointment held nationally by only 3,000 real estate professionals dedicated to helping luxury home buyers and sellers (physicians and other medical professionals) fulfill their real estate dreams.
Our physician clients wanted to find a home in the reputed Highland Park ISD in the city of University Park in Dallas for their kids and for an easier commute to their hospitals. We were able to identify and buy a gorgeous home in the heart of University Park close to the schools.
Purchase a home
Purchasing a home is one of life's largest financial expenditures. And one that you definitely want to go off without a hitch. Your primary home in Texas is automatically considered a "homestead" and offers protection from lawsuits and creditors. Please contact me to learn more about this Texas privilege.
A typical home purchase transaction has literally 100's, if not 1000's of details to manage. If one detail is mismanaged-then the sale could be in serious jeopardy.
My mission as your REALTOR to make sure all these details are completely covered, and that you get the best possible home-for the best terms possible. Your 100% Satisfaction is my Success.
I will help you find a home close to the hospital where you work so that you can spend more time with family.
Doctors Only Loan Info
Most of my clients are financing a major portion of the purchase price of the home they are buying-which will require obtaining a mortgage. Having the right Lender on your team can make all the difference, as to whether your home purchase experience is a great one-or a nightmare.
Utilizing my network of of Lenders and Banks I can refer you to a select group of lenders that are capable of quickly handling the sometimes unique mortgage needs of a Physician buyer. Most of the Lenders I can refer you to have special 'Doctor loan or physician loan' Programs, that make your purchase of a home much more streamlined and hassle-free. This may include lower downpayment needs and good interest rates.
Whether you are joining a residency program in Dallas area or whether you are moving into your second house, I will help you get the right loan.
Relocating for your next job across the country is an exciting but a complicated process.

Sell a home
A number of my local clients have a home or condo to sell before they can purchase their new home. If that's your case, I will create a customized online and offline marketing plan for you, which will expose your property to the buyers most likely to be interested in your home. I will also make sure your home is priced correctly, in relation to the current real estate market. By proper positioning, your property will sell quickly and for the most money possible.
I also offer assistance to our clients who are looking to purchase an investment property to create income generating assets for your retirement. Whether you are thinking of investing in multi-family or retail strip malls, I will be happy to work with you.
I have spent a great deal of time in Texas for the past 15+ years; If you’d like to explore your investment property options further, please contact me, and I will contact you at my earliest convenience.
Having the right medical office is one of the most critical components to growing a successful practice, but as a doctor, you may not know how to find the ideal medical office real estate to provide care to patients and grow your practice in the future. I work with medical and healthcare professionals to find and secure office space that fits the needs of your practice.
After reviewing the goals for your practice, I will identify desirable properties based on your demographics, square footage, and location preferences, and take care of all the required landlord negotiations, including:
Lease rates and/or purchase price
Landlord concessions such as free rent and tenant finish
Additional business needs, including renewal terms, expansion needs, parking, and signage
Tenant exclusivity so you won’t have competitors set up practices nearby
Sometimes purchasing a home is just not feasible. You may be staying in the area for only a year or two, and are not ready to commit to owning a property. If that's the case, then leasing will be a logical option for you. We can assist you in securing a suitable apartment, home or condo.

The purchase or sale of a home is all about the negotiations that go on between all the involved parties (i.e. Sellers-Buyers-Realtors). Almost every facet of a purchase or sale, is based on negotiations - from the sale price of the home to option period to many other equally important deal points such as: Possession dates, Closing dates, Repair issues, et,. My primary job as your REALTOR is to negotiate with your best interests in mind at all times. When you hire me, you can rest assured that whether I am representing you as a Seller or a Buyer, your interestes will be well protected.

What makes a city appealing for medical practice?
It can vary greatly based on life stage, personal interests, career goals or even the level of education of a physician's spouse. However, most physicians are looking for some combination of positive features, from high rates of compensation to good schools for their kids to top cultural offerings.
Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the Association of American Medical Colleges, the Tax Foundation, Diederich Healthcare — a malpractice insurer — and the Missouri Economic Research and Information Center, in addition to its proprietary reports, Medscape compiled a list of the best and worst places for physicians to practice in 2016.
The best cities boast top schools, high compensation, low tax rates, low malpractice payouts, strong economies, low density of physicians, cultural amenities and beautiful landscapes. The worst cities have high costs of living, high rates of unemployment, low compensation or unhealthy populations. While no best or worst city has all positive or negative features, the top locations offer a greater overall environment for physician practice. Here are the best 25 cities and worst five cities in the U.S. for physician practice, as rated by Medscape.
