At the Closing Table

Sometimes there are tears of sadness at the closing table, but mostly joy. Just 3 days ago Deb, a very happy young woman, closed on a delightful 3 bedroom home in our area.

The story of how this came about is interesting. Deb has a friend who knows a Realtor friend of mine and this Realtor friend called me while I was recently on vacation. He said a young woman who worked at Eastern University really needed help. He told me Deb had been working with a Realtor for 8 months trying to buy a house! She felt everything had gone wrong in her relationship with the other Realtor and wanted to start fresh.

Immediately I called Deb and discovered she already knew which house she wanted to buy. She and her friend had even visited the owner one day long ago and had seen it and liked it. So with a call to Deb's lender, a call to my business partner Dennis, and a call to the listing agent, I set up a new showing, got a verbal agreement on an offer, emailed all the necessary paperwork to my partner Dennis, and we had this home under contract all in the same day! I love it when real estate deals come together like that!!!

It's times like this when the experience of 20 years in the business, makes a huge difference. I knew exactly who to talk to, how to make this come together, and got to a smooth closing, all done very efficiently. If you know someone who's struggling with any real estate needs, please do let me know and see if I can help. I can always be reached at 800-923-3245.
