Have you ever wanted to ask questions about buying or selling a home, but weren’t nearly ready to hire a Realtor? Get the information you need without a sales pitch, at Ruby K’s Community Hour.

At 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 15, James Chrobocinski, owner and qualifying broker of Zia Realty Group, will lead a first-time homebuyers information session and Q&A at Ruby K’s Bagel Café.

Realtors Karen Hawkins and Cindy Hollabaugh also will present information about the real estate process.

“We don’t want people to feel pressured at this event,” Chrobocinski said. “We’ll just be there to answer questions.”

People who attend this event will walk away with specific information on buying a house in Los Alamos.

Are you ready to buy a home? If not, what still needs to be done?

How to save time when applying for a mortgage.

  • How to prepare your home for sale.
  • For couples: how to agree on a style of house.
  • What needs to be done before you start the home buying process?
  • What questions to ask when choosing a Realtor.
  • How to navigate the Multiple Listings Service so that you can get the most out of this powerful tool.

The small group setting will make it possible to get specific answers to your questions. This information session will be geared toward first-time homebuyers who want to get information on the process of buying a home, without pressure or obligation. People who have other real estate questions are also welcome to stop by.

“I enjoy working with buyers because I love helping people find exactly what they want,” Chrobocinski said.

The talk will be at Ruby K’s Bagel Café, 1789 Central Ave. in Los Alamos. Call them at (505) 662-9866.
