is Scott Marvin with ColumbusNewBuild.com
an I am a licensed real estate agent with RE/MAX Champions
here in the Columbus area. I have helped 100's of home buyers
find the perfect home during my 20 year career. I have also

hidden costs and any other strategies the builder might use
to get more money from you or place you into an undesirable
home or undesirable location. To do this I must be with you
when you visit the builder especially at the time of entering
into a contract to purchase.

I work in your best interest.

current home if you are already a homeowner. With your mind
at ease you will be able to shop for new homes knowing I will
be there to back you up and make sure you have a pleasant
and successful transaction with the builder. It's just that
