Yesterday I received an unsolicited testimonial from Michael L. who bought a house this past year….and I am so happy he loves his house and the dish washer works.
Happy Holiday’s Miriam,
I want to thank you for the warm holiday wishes, and i am enjoying the house. I found out about three weeks ago that the dish washer works just fine. The switch that was on the wall that we were thinking might have been for a garbage disposal was in fact to turn power on for the dish washer. I am always finding out new things about the house each month, so it is like my first day each time. I love my home and i am completely happy that i purchased this house over all of the other houses that i saw. This is in part to having a great agent. If it was not for you, i really don’t know where i would be with the house buying. I am so thankful for all you did and you will never be forgotten.
So what did I do to earn this? Well Michael and I saw many houses, I never pressured him or inserted my view as to what he should buy, I suggested home inspectors, I suggested mortgage brokers, banks, suggested prices but it was always his decision. Issues in the inspection were discussed, recommendations as to resolutions made but never pressure – it was always his decision as to what was important to him. He changed his mind about a few houses and backed out of deals not a problem, always up to him and decisions were made as new information about houses was obtained.
He was respectful of me, the sellers and the process. He read and followed the contract. He understood that when you present an offer to a seller it matters to them.
As an agent I wanted my client to find the right property and be comfortable with the price, the terms, the condition…as he was.
