Amber has a natural love for real estate. As a creative mind, she instinctively sees what could be in each home and empowers her clients to discover their own vision of a property’s potential. “I’ve always loved creating and telling stories. What a better story to create than one of a new beginning that starts at the front door.”
Scotty, a meteorologist by trade and graduate of Texas A&M University, began investing in real estate as a side venture. The personal connections he made with families through his real estate experience and his desire to help others in real estate transactions led him to pursue real estate full-time.

We believe in be honest and upfront with every person every time! We want to help you make informed decisions in all real estate transactions.
The program empowers you to buy your new home prior to selling your old house on the market for maximum value. Here’s how it works:
Absolutely! As long as the home will be used as the primary residence, the Home Swap can be used to buy and sell condos, townhomes, and single-family homes.
Yes absolutely! As long as the builder is funding the cost of construction prior to the final closing (most large builders do this). There are some specific details unique to new construction deals depending on time to build (related to pre-approval requirements and rate locks) that you’ll want to review with the Loan Advisor once we’ve received your application.
For all of the convenience and certainty offered with the Home Swap, there is a 1.25% convenience fee on the purchase of your new home. You can either pay this at closing or roll this into your equity advance. This convenience fee is similar to an origination fee, which many lenders charge.
For clients who go under contract on or after March 1, 2022, there will be a $250 processing fee added to the Knock Equity Advance loan. This fee will be in addition to the current $1450 lender fee on the new mortgage, meaning total lender fees (other than the 1.25% convenience fee) for Knock Home Swap.
With the Home Swap, you only pay one mortgage at a time. You’ll pay the mortgage on your new home, immediately building equity, while the monthly mortgage payments on your old house are covered.
With the Home Swap, you’ll list your existing house on the market after you’ve purchased and moved into your new home. The goal is for you to sell your listing on the market for max value. That said, on the off chance your listing doesn’t sell on the market, you’ll have the option to take an offer that is provided upfront.
Closing Guarantee Knock guarantees that we’ll close in 30 days with the Knock Closing Guarantee. If not, you’ll get $5,000 back from Knock.
