My wife and I are/were first time home buyers who traveled from several states away and allotted ourselves one week to find - and buy - a home. Due to my work schedule and my wife being very pregnant this was a critical situation. We began working with Chris Malone and his wife, Terri, several weeks before arriving in Sacramento. Chris and Terri helped us get together all the necessary loan documentation and develop a list of potential homes. Given our compressed time frame I was hopeful, but doubtful, that we could find something that would fit our needs and budget. Before I go on I must say that Chris is phenomenal! For nearly a whole week we looked at houses non-stop. Chris' knowledge of the area and market was a tremendous asset. Chris and Terri truly went above and beyond to help us buy the home we wanted. They did a masterful job of walking us through all the intricacies of home buying and the negotiation process, which was only made more difficult by us having to complete the deal from several states away. I HIGHLY recommend the Malone Group to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Sacramento area - they are FANTASTIC!
