There are three words you hear often at Yolanda Lara’s house: “Come on in!” Around here, it’s not uncommon to find friends or family members drop by, and Yolanda loves opening her house to loved ones.
She thrives on cooking and entertaining for guests, inviting people over for a backyard barbecue or simply spending quality time with the people that mean the most to her. “My house is the gathering home,” Yolanda says with a smile. “It’s great to have a place where everyone feels so comfortable and welcome. I just want guests to feel ‘right at home.’”
Why use a REALTOR® for the purchase of your home?
Whether selling your home, buying a home, or building your dream home it is important to have proper representation. A Realtor does just that. A Realtor serves as a buffer between you and the other party to look out for your best interest. Many buyers believe that they are saving money when they choose not to use a Realtor. The problem is who will they turn to if they run into trouble with their purchase, have questions, etc.? And sellers think they can save money by not using a Realtor to put their home up for sale. But the truth is not using a Realtor not only limits a seller to the exposure his house can get, it may not be priced correctly and when a home sits on the market for too long it becomes stale.
Buyers and REALTORS® begin to wonder what is wrong with that home. When building a new construction home buyers think they can save by going straight to a builder without a Realtor. Remember the person working at the builder office works for the builder not you. Who will represent you if something goes wrong? Therefore, I recommend you have me in your corner to help guide you in every step of the way.
Resale Homes VS
If a resale home is what you want there are pros and cons to consider. Resale homes tend to come with extras that new construction homes do not. Extras may be sprinkler system, blinds, landscaping, pre-wire for home theater system, pre-wire for alarm system, water softener, etc. Some cons to consider, it is not new and may need upgrading.
Here are some cons with new construction homes, no sprinkler system, no blinds and some landscaping. Most builders include the front yard landscaping but not the backyard with the purchase of a new home. Pros are, you are moving into a brand new home, you can pick out your cabinets, colors for walls, flooring, exterior stone, etc.

"Yolanda was a wonderful REALTOR® and we were so lucky to buy our first home with her by our side. She was always ready with the right questions when talking to builders or sellers. Yolanda was great at exploring all the options we had and we are so thankful for all her help and advice. Yolanda was not just around until we closed on the house. She continued to follow up with us and our home builder to make sure we were satisfied and was always available when we had questions."
"Thank you so much for helping us sell our home in Austin. We can’t say enough about how easy and comfortable you made it for us. You were extremely flexible and accommodating with our schedule and went above and beyond all of our expectations. Every aspect of the selling process from start to finish was professional and comprehensive. The photos of our home were stunning. Most importantly you over delivered on your promise to sell our home quickly and at a price higher than we ever thought was possible."

"I recommend Yolanda because she gets the job done. She’s a real estate professional. If you’re looking to buy, she goes all the way with you. Communication is very important, this she does perfectly. I recently closed on my home, this was done because Yolanda handled it in a professional manner."
