Purchasing a Property?

Flowchart of the Process

As a Buyer’s Agent, it’s my responsibility to ensure your purchasing process goes as smooth as possible. If you haven’t purchased a home for a while or ever, the following is a little flowchart of the process.

Properties catered to you

I will send you properties that are specific to your needs. I can even specify if you are looking for properties with something specific like Outbuilding, Barn, Indoor Arena, etc.
Buyer's Agent 7


I can show you ANY property on the market…no matter who has the listing…even if it’s a FSBO.

Buyer's Agent 8


I am available to show you properties 7 days a week. Some sellers require 24 hour advanced notice, so as soon as you see a property you like, let me know so we can coordinate schedules between all parties and get you in to see the house!
Buyer's Agent 9


When you find your dream property, I will research comparable properties that have sold to advise you what the market prices are and how much you should offer.
Buyer's Agent 10


Negotiate offers…not only offer price, but inspection issues and/or appraisal issues.

Buyer's Agent 11


I will help coordinate inspection dates and times as well as be at the home with you during the inspection. View my recommend Real Estate Resources page.

Buyer's Agent 13

Closing & Follow-up

Closing day is exciting but sometimes a little nerve racking. I will be at the closing table with you along with your attorney and lender. My closing team is very pro-active in making sure everything is ready for closing. Occasionally, an unexpected issue may arise. If it does, my closing team is quick to get on the phone and resolve any issues. I will check in with you after closing to make sure all is well and that you are settling into your new home nicely.
  • "Amy was phenomenal throughout my entire home buying process. She is very knowledgeable about farm properties and everything that goes along with them. Thanks to Amy, I was able to find exactly what I was looking for, in the area I really wanted to live."

    Alex Scarpetta

  • "Amy Rogus was very knowledgeable of our horse needs and care to help find the best possible horse property for that purpose and kept good tabs on exactly what we was always looking for... ie. House, barn, & land alt together to get us the best possible package deal to get us our dream farm

    Amy was always available and ready to answer all our questions and concerns

    Amy was very professional at all times and always concerned that we were getting exactly what we wanted and if she thought there was something that not might work for us she gave her input to make sure it works for us

    We are Very delighted & thankful for the time and effort Amy Rogus put in for us finding our dream home & horse training facility"

  • "Amy was fantastic at hearing our needs and tailoring her searches based on those needs and the fine tuning we made as a family down to minor details. She was extremely prompt and flexible in setting up appointments and gathering information for us. We loved working with Amy and we knew she cared for our family and was invested in helping us find the right property.

    Our search was unique in that the property we were looking for had specific requirements. Amy’s specialty in farm properties is what drew us to her and ultimately her professionalism and personality made us more than confident in choosing her for such an important decision"

    Ryan Bourbonnais

  • "Amy Rogus recently represented us in buying our dream farm property and selling our previous home. We were able to quickly submit an offer, negotiate price, and gain a contract on the property of our dreams. She then facilitated the listing of our previous home, and we negotiated a contract within one week of listing. It was an extremely stressful time, and Amy made every step of the process as smooth as it could have been. She was patient, thorough, and great with communicating. We are grateful to have had Amy's services, and would recommend her for any broker needs in the future."

    Kathleen Jacobson

  • "My wife and I have been working with Amy for the past 2 years looking for a property we can live on and house our horses on. Amy is extremely knowledgeable about the appropriate properties that we needed. She stuck with us for the past couple of years looking at several properties until we could find the right one. We appreciate her patience and helping us see this through to finally buying a new home and barn! We couldn't be happier with our purchase and would recommend her to anyone looking for a new property."

    Jerry Horn

  • "Working with Amy was very easy and she was available for whatever we needed. Would recommend her to anyone. She is very well versed in her specialty of farms and went above and beyond our expectations

    One of the best in the business. Exceeded all expectations"

    John Filomeno

  • We met with Amy about selling our home and purchasing a new one. She was very kind and quickly available. She was great about working with my schedule which I really appreciated. She did a lot of research for how we should price our home my wife and I really thought that was great so we weren't just guessing at what we should list for; especially with the current market. She gave us some tips on how best to present the look of the house and she did a fantastic job with the listing and the pictures that she advertised with were fantastic. We had an offer within 24 hrs. She was very good with the contracts and the stuff you never think about. I always thought realtors were just middle men taking our money but she very much proved me wrong. She was excellent with dealing with the other realtors who asked for showings or had questions about our home. The sale went very smoothly and my wife and I couldn't be happier. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to buy or sell or any combination of the two. We definitely couldn't have done it without her!"

    Keith Muffler

  • I chose Amy because I was looking for a specific type of property (horse property) and Amy, being a horse owner herself, had insights into what I was wanting. Amy did a wonderful job selecting properties that would work for me. She saved me valuable time by knowing which properties were worth a look and which ones would not be a good fit for me. Amy was easily accessible and responded quickly to questions and concerns. I highly recommend her.

    MJ, Frankfort, IL

  • Amy was great. My wife is a horse person. Her an Amy just clicked. Horse people are a kind all their own and they get each other. Amy completely understood everything my wife said and had asked for.

    Zack Channahon

  • My husband and I were completely satisfied with our broker, Amy Rogus. She exceeded our expectations in every aspect of our home search. From our first conversation Amy was a wonderful listener. She took the time to really hear and understand what was important to us and what we were looking for. When we would get discouraged and consider settling for a home that did not meet our criteria she would ask the right questions that reminded us of what was important in our new home. She never tried to talk us out of a house but just brought the important points to the forefront that allowed us to make the right decisions. She always said that together we would find the perfect home and she was absolutely right. We could not be happier with the home that we have purchased! Thanks Amy
