Six Steps To Nest

JeanieHi! My name is Jeanie Douthitt, and I am the founder of Smart Women Buy Homes™

Single women are often afraid to purchase a home by themselves. First-time home buyers may think they can't afford their own home, or don't know where to start. I can relate. When I purchased my first home, I didn't have any idea where to start.

Women shouldn't feel fear and anxiety when buying a home, like I did. Instead, buying a home should be an exciting time, a high point in your single life, when you experience the empowerment and freedom of making one of the most important investments in yourself and your life.

Working with a Smart Women Buy Homes™ advisor assures you that you will be listened to, treated with respect, and receive trustworthy advice and information, while we expertly manage ALL the details for you. We make your home buying experience simple, easy and a joy using my Smart Women Buy Homes™ Six Steps to The Nest© process!

We look forward to serving you!

Warmest regards,


Jeanie Douthitt founded Smart Women Buy Homes™ after a successful 20-year career in information technology to pursue her passion to help single women achieve their dream of homeownership.

Many single women started out just like you. Not sure if buying was right for them. If they were too young to take the leap. Or if divorced or widowed, how they would manage to go through the home buying process alone. They've overcome the challenges, faced their fears, and have discovered the joy of buying and owning their own home with the help of a Smart Women Buy Homes™ advisor.
