SOLD! FIRST TIME HOME BUYERS, REFERRED TO ME BY A PAST CLIENT, WON THE BID IN A MULTIPLE OFFER SITUATION.

Good friends, and one of my first real estate clients, referred me to close friends of theirs who were ready to purchase their first home. What an honor! Knowledge about today’s market: Interest rates, home values, loan programs, etc. is KEY when buying a home in this client. It was so fun educating this SMART, sharp couple and I’m grateful for their trust in me to help them.

Originally looking in the Irvington area, they decided to purchase in Lawrence, in the same neighborhood in which the buyer grew up. It was meant to be!!

Multiple offers were received but I immediately established rapport with the list agent, communicated well and often and we were chosen! We DID have to offer above list but soon after multiple homes in the area sold prior to the appraisal and became wonderful comparables for us resulting in the home appraising at the offered purchase price. YAY!!!

The buyers didn’t pay one cent over appraised value and that’s a HUGE WIN right now with buyers bidding over ask price AND appraised value. It was so fun getting to know these wonderful, savvy clients and I’m going to miss talking with them so frequently.

SOLD! DOWNSIZING BUYERS CHOSE TO BUILD WITH MY HELP.

After looking at some existing home options, buyers chose to build in a wonderful developing neighborhood coincidently close to family. It wasn’t the initial plan but I’m so excited they were open to building because this is the PERFECT home for them.

Remember that when you’re looking at new build homes, the representitive in the model home works for the builder. You STILL need and SHOULD have Buyer’s representation. That’s where I come in!

As a buyer, you do not pay a realtor commission to have a licensed, experienced Agent like me represent you and negotiate on your behalf. The sales price of the new build does not go down if you opt not to have a realtor represent you so it’s in your best interest to be protected!

SOLD! SELLERS BUILT THIS HOME BUT HAVE FOUND THEIR NEXT DREAM HOME & BUYERS RELOCATING FROM OUT OF STATE COULDN’T BE HAPPIER.

Sellers needed a bit more room and I was honored to assist them in finding their next home. Once we located the next amazing home we strategized on when to list their existing home and all worked out perfectly!

It’s such a joy helping sellers through this process and becoming better friends along the way. Thank you to them for trusting me and partnering with me!

It’s a “Sellers Market” but this is one of the largest financial and business decisions you will make – don’t go at it alone! It’s important to have a licensed professional, like me :-), to guide you and take the stress of selling a home off your shoulders.

SOLD! SELLER SELLS FAMILY HOME OF 49 YEARS SMOOTHLY & FOR TOP DOLLAR.

Many memories were made in this home – 49 years worth for the homeowner! I also have a few memories in this home from my grade school years, hanging out with the seller’s daughter.

I was more then humbled and flattered when my long time friend asked me to help her mom sell her family home. Why choose me, out of all the realtors she knows in her community. It’s because she knew I would treat her mother like MY mother!

I treat everyone I help buy or sell a home the same as I would treat my Mother but it’s definitely special when I’m partnered with someone who really knows me and KNOWS I care and am invested in their best interest financially and emotionally.

THANK YOU, friends. It was an HONOR!

SOLD! FIRST TIME HOMEBUYERS SECURE AN AMAZING UPDATED BROAD RIPPLE CHARMER!

A wonderful couple I helped a couple years ago referred me to a lovely engaged couple ready to purchase their first home. They interviewed a couple realtors and chose me. YAY! We had a lot of fun looking around Broad Ripple. It’s a fabulously fun area with so many local businesses in walking distance BUT you need to have a critical eye when looking at homes of a certain age, wear & tear, etc.

This home was amazing! The seller had completely renovated and improved upon all the big ticket items and the basement was the biggest, nicest, cleanest, most user friendly basement I’d seen in a Broad Ripple home. I called the list agent, asked a lot of questions about what would make us a top contender in this competitive market and we got the house!

The buyers didn’t pay one cent over appraised value and that’s a HUGE WIN right now with buyers bidding over ask price AND appraised value. It was so fun hanging with these two smart, responsible clients and I’m going to miss talking with them so frequently.

SOLD! REVOLVING DOOR OF SHOWINGS ON THIS BEAUTIFUL GOLF COURSE HOME!

This home was a retreat for my seller for many years but after securing her a new home, with a pool that she desired for years, it was time to let another homebuyer enjoy it.

I’d known my client for many years but we became better friends throughout this process. I was honored and closing day was extremely rewarding as a result of the stronger bond we had formed.

This is what it’s all about!! Forming & growing amazing relationships and bonds I may not have had the pleasure of doing so if not being so instrumental in helping my friends, family, peers, and referrals reach their home buying and selling goals

Make sure YOU choose a realtor that will represent you well, work well with other agents, and provide a smooth experience for your buy or sell!

SOLD! SELLERS BUILT THIS HOME & RAISED THEIR FAMILY HERE. HAPPY BUYERS LOOK FORWARD TO DOING THE SAME.

The best part of this transaction is that good friends put their faith in me! My Sellers were ready to pass on the home they built over 15 years ago to another to enjoy.

It was a tough decision to sell their home this but with kids growing up and moving on, it was a great time for them to downsize and take advantage of a seller’s market! The house pended in 3 days of list date with a fantastic offer from a nice young family! We all hope they will be as happy as my sellers were the past 15 years,

Make sure YOU choose a realtor that will represent you well, work well with other agents, and provide a smooth experience for your buy or sell!

SOLD! AFTER 33 SHOWINGS IN 15 HOURS, SELLERS ACCEPTED ONE OF 14 OFFER OVER ASK PRICE

My Sellers were ready to pass on their “first home” to another to enjoy but were nervous about opening their home for showings during a time in which we were still concerned about the safety of everyone. We put all the protocols in place and allowed overlapping showings so many buyers could view over the course of a few days. We had 33 showings in 15 showing hours and received 14 offers!

The sellers made the decision based on the best offer for them but I was pleased to work with their extremely professional and thorough buyers agent. The climate is like nothing we’ve seen before but kindness, professionalism, and excellent communication among real estate professionals is STILL so important to getting to the closing table. More so now then ever, in my opinion.

What a lovely transaction from beginning to end and the buyers are extremely happy with the home my sellers passed on!
Make sure YOU choose a realtor that will represent you well, work well with other agents, and provide a smooth experience for your buy or sell!

SOLD! AFTER TWO YEARS, WE FOUND MY BUYERS DREAM HOME IN A MULTIPLE OFFER SITUATION

When your buyer says she wants a pool, you know you’re going to have to fight hard in this aggressive, competitive market buyers are facing.

This amazing home had what many buyers wanted in terms of location, lot size, layout and…POOL!

Showings were booked back to back and I had to call the list agent to ask if we could squeeze in ANYWHERE there was a teeny opening. A quick phone call turned into a wonderful back and forth banter with lots of laughs and immediate rapport with the list agent. We knew what we had to do to be considered a contender with this house but I KNOW establishing a wonderful relationship right from the start with the list agent aided in the agent and seller feeling comfortable with our ability to make this a smooth transaction for all – and ultimately winning us the deal!

The seller and buyer ended up becoming great friends with much in common and the closing was full of smiles, wit and gut laughs. One of the MOST fun closings I’ve had thus far. 🙂

Anyone can put a sign in the yard and any agent can show you the house. BUT, be sure you choose an agent that is kind, professional, knowledgeable and will establish good relationships with all parties involved.
