The current real estate market presents incredible challenges for buyers, especially if you have a home sale contingency. In our case, we found a specific home that we loved, and with Mary and her team’s help, we were able to get our offer accepted. We then turned around, and in a short period of time, put our existing home on the market.
With their expert guidance and sheer hustle, our home was beautifully staged and priced in a period of a week. Over the next two weeks, the home was marketed, drawing some 50 families to view the home. Several offers were tendered, one of which met our criteria. We were of course thrilled, but the process was not over yet!
As we moved towards closing on both properties, Mary and her team smoothed over communications between all parties, offered wise strategies, and provided moral support. They gave up nights and weekends, even spending both of their birthday evenings with us, to make sure every detail was covered and we had the most up-to-date communication. The icing on the cake was that Jeff was a perfectionist at getting photos of the house, and Mary even came over one night to help us clean when she heard we were behind schedule on getting moved out. Service like this is extraordinarily rare, but it serves to show how deeply Mary and her team care about what they do!
In the end, we moved into a new home that we love, in the time frame we were hoping for, while meeting our financial goals for the transaction. When asked why things worked out so well for us, when there are so many stories about homes that won’t sell or deals that fall apart, we respond with two answers: faith … and the best realtors around!
