Buying Homes in Delaware

”Our goal here at Barbara Morales Associates is to find you the right property in Coastal Delaware. We will take the time to understand the individual needs and desires of each of our clients and determine whether the Rehoboth, Bethany, Dewey, Lewes and surrounding area real estate markets are right for you. We promise to tell you everything we know about a property, good or bad, to allow you to determine if that home is right for “YOU” today and tomorrow.”   Barbara Morales, REALTOR, Founder

All the agents at Barbara Morales Associates have a vast working knowledge of the real estate market, including price trends, neighborhood conditions and amenities, real estate law, zoning issues, financing, taxes, insurance and negotiating. We work hard to find a way to help our buyers attain as many of their needs as possible when dealing with marketplace realities and/or any financial constraints.

Our agents are responsible for obtaining all the appropriate disclosures, making sure home inspections and repairs are completed, and coordinating the activities of your lender, attorney, inspectors and other professionals engaged in your purchase. If negotiating the price is necessary, your agent will be your negotiator, and he or she will accompany you to settlement to make sure all the “I’s” are dotted and the “T’s” crossed.

With the internet and mobile devices taking the market by storm, Buyers’ agents are no longer the gatekeepers of property information, but the Internet is, in reality, a marketing tool. Real Estate Agents can clarify, evaluate, and confirm validity of the information found online and present that property information to home buyers with confidence. If done properly – everyone benefits, if ignored or done inadequately – everyone suffers.

You can rest assured that everyone here at Barbara Morales Associates will be your trusted adviser and advocate during the entire home buying process.

“Thank you for representing us on both deals!  You and your team are real professionals. Your experience in helping us navigate through the twists and turns was invaluable. Gina and I are looking forward to great times in Lewes with the kids and grand kids, while still in close proximity to our favorite RB attractions!  Hope to see you this summer.   A special thank you from me too! I know Ray handled most of everything but your team help to keep him somewhat calm 😜 which made my life much easier! After seeing how unprofessional a realtor can be, I feel blessed that all of you were representing us! ”    Ray and Gina, PA

“Joan Wallace was by far the best Realtor we’ve ever worked with , and this is our 6th home purchase in 40+ years. We had a lot of false starts as we took almost 3 years to sell our last house and Joan has the patience of a saint! Once we finally were able to buy she made the process flow smoothly and her attention to detail was fantastic. We’re so glad she stuck with us through it all, and we have friends interested in the area as well, we will surely refer them to Joan! Thanks for everything!”

“Several years ago, we first started looking for a home in the Rehoboth Beach area. Rick took us out the first time, and we were immediately impressed with his skill set and local knowledge of the RE market. After several bids on several homes, we successfully bid on the home we now love. Any ordinary real estate agent might have given up on us over the 3-year period. But not Rick. He stayed with us, and throughout, was a top-notch negotiator getting us an excellent price (As an attorney, who negotiates for a living, that really impressed me). Rick never let us down, and always kept us timely informed on events. I would highly recommend him to any prospective buyers/sellers in the area.”
