Our first home is everything we had asked and hoped for – complete with a white picket fence and located 8 blocks from the beach! All thanks to our buyer's agent, Agatha Bazzi.
While Agatha treated us like family and conducted herself in an extremely professional manner when dealing with the other agent and parties involved in our transaction, she was a tiger when needed!
With Agatha’s proactive attitude, we were able to put in the first offer on the three properties we were interested in, so we had our choice of properties that fit our needs and price range. In fact, the home we ended up purchasing was only listed on the MLS for - literally - minutes before Agatha contacted the listing agent and persuaded her to submit our offer to the bank for consideration (though there were at least two cash buyers interested in purchasing the property, as well).
Additionally, all the properties we liked were short sales, and Agatha did a terrific job of keeping an eye on the sellers, listing agents, and banks involved, so our ultimate offer was accepted by the bank in a very short time period (unlike the horror stories we’ve heard about other agents who let offers go unanswered by the bank for up to a year!).
Also, we’re secure in knowing that we made a smart investment, as Agatha negotiated an ample closing cost credit from the sellers, and our home appraised for more than we paid for it!
