Conduct a Needs Analysis

We know the home buying experience can be fraught with mystery. Our experienced agents will leverage expertise, local market knowledge, and key industry partnerships to ease you through the process of finding your dream home. We’ve been down this road before, so we’ll first ask the necessary questions and gather the important data we need to kick off journey to home ownership. Let’s get started!


Get Your Finances in Order

At this stage, our job is to maneuver all the financial pieces to ensure you’re on strong financial footing when that dream home becomes available. Our recommended network of lenders and financial experts will help tighten up your credit, determine exactly how much you can afford for both a home and a down payment, and make sure you’re formally pre-approved for a loan, all with the goal of solidifying your position as a serious market contender.


Shop for A Home

Now for the fun part! We’ll help you draw up a “wish list” of everything you’re looking for in not just your new home, but your new community as well. We’ll match your must-haves with your budget and then draw on our local expertise and network of industry colleagues to help you find a place that’s everything you wished for. Shopping for a home is exciting, so just have fun with it!


Make an Offer and Negotiate

You’ve found “the one” and you’re ready to make an offer! We’ll help you formulate a fair, data-driven purchase offer based on in-depth market analysis, and draw up the purchase agreements. Then, we’ll leverage smart negotiating skills to guide you through contingencies and ensure you don’t spend any more than you need to. And, should things not work out with one offer, we’ll be ready with a game plan for the next.


Conduct a Property Inspection

Once your offer is selected, you can elect to inspect the property. If you do this, we’ll send an independent licensed inspector to fully check a home’s condition. Because it detects issues that aren’t apparent on a walk-through, a home inspection is a powerful negotiating tool and the best insurance you can ever get on a property. If issues arise, we’ll work with you to develop strategies on how best to proceed. You’re getting close, and you don’t want to set yourself up for a houseful of headaches.


Get Final Financing Approval

This part can get complicated, but we know from experience how to keep the crucial final stages of loan approval from becoming overwhelming. We’ll regularly monitor the progress of your transaction and keep you fully aware of unexpected funds that might be expected from you. We’ll also work with your lender to make sure all the necessary paperwork is complete as we move closer to a smooth closing.


Congratulate Yourself on Your New Home!

Making it through escrow can seem like a mountain of details but the view from the top is worth it. Expect to sign a ton of paperwork before you get there, and we’ll hold your hand through every step of the process. A few days before closing, we’ll conduct a final walk-through, and then, once both parties sign closing statements, the keys are yours and we’ll celebrate your new home and your new life!

Thornton and Thornton was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful all throughout the process of selling my two properties and purchasing my dream home. Not only did they sell my properties for top dollar, but they saved me $800,000 on my purchase. Highly recommended, love these guys!

Oliver & RC Thornton were beyond exceptional in their performance selling our WeHo home and helping us move into 2302 Camden. Admittedly, were were many forces out of our control in both transactions due to COVID-19 delays that caused some turbulence in the transaction but Oliver and RC were there to help us navigate the storm to a successful outcome. Not only did we get our Camden home for $140,000 unde...

Working with Thornton and Thornton was such a seamless process. Everything from identifying the property to the escrow process and beyond was so smooth. They even helped with sourcing an insurance broker and a furniture designer to help streamline our on-boarding process with the new house. We are now in our dream home and could not be happier!

I had been looking for a project to renovate and sell in the Hollywood Hills area and was having so much trouble finding one that would generate a lucrative outcome for me. When working with Oliver & RC, they were able to find me an incredible project within one week of searching where I bought this property for roughly $400 a foot with views and a pool. I was thrilled to work with Oliver & RC and I look...

Not only did they help me secure an epic home, but they saved me almost $90,000 off the purchase price as well. In addition to that, they helped facilitate renovations to the house which made...

Within 2 weeks, Oliver found me an off market project well under market value in Mount Olympus tha...

To say the least, these guys kick ass. We had been searching for a home with our previous realtor for about 9 months with no luck. We had then met Thornton & Thornton at a party and decided to give them a shot. Within 3 months, they were able to find us our home. Better yet , they helped us win in a multiple offer against 5 other parties. Now we are doing some last minute touch -ups with some of Thornton...
