Honest and no pressure
My husband and I met Patty at an open house about a year or so ago. Actually, we happen to be driving by a listing she was representing, phoned her and asked if she could show it to us. She dropped whatever she was doing to open up the house for us. And so began our working relationship. Throughout our experience working with Patty, she continuously demonstrated the same amount of responsiveness, availability and professionalism. My husband and I both felt she really listened to the style and feel of home we were looking for and not only showed us homes within that range, but also educated us on options we hadn’t even considered.
During the negotiation and offer stage, Patty never once gave us the old “well, write up an offer and see what they say”. Rather, she provided us with useful comp’s in the area, financial information, school information and so on to guide is in to make the right decision and a range we would be comfortable with. When we finally did find our “dream house” it was in a neighborhood Patty had recommended I had not even previously considered. When we entered the contract phase, Patty was diligent in protecting our interests making sure everything was so clear and documented.
My family and I have been in the house several weeks now and are so happy to have gone through the process with Patty. We speak now about how much value she added and how if we had settled in the area we had previously been focused on, we would not have been nearly as happy.
I hope to never have to be house hunting again because Patty did her job so well!! If I ever do, however, I have no doubt who I’ll turn too. Perhaps a vacation home. 🙂
