I am very pleased to recommend Nate Allen to anyone looking for a reliable real estate agent. In 2010, I, a professional and Denver resident, wanted to visit a few houses in Orange County where my daughters live. I found Nate’s name online and he was willing to show me and my wife houses in Orange County. In the process of viewing houses with him, we found him very pleasant and knowledgeable in all aspects of the real estate business. My wife and I took a long pause, however, and began searching again with Nate in December 2012 and we finally moved into a house in Fullerton, CA thanks to Nate’s help.
The following was our experience with Nate. Nate had endless energy in his effort to find the right house for us. First, he gave us a bigger picture of the housing market in terms of the economy, inventories, pricing, trends and things that we needed to know before we could go into the details. He also gave us a local perspective by taking us to a geographical high point from where we could locate each neighborhood in every direction. He then took us to individual houses he carefully selected in accordance with our preferences.
Nate never hesitated to say what he considered to be important about a house we were visiting. Nate was always quite transparent with his views especially when he thought we were not informed properly. He has great communication skills and communicates very clearly to make sure that we are on the same page with him all times. He is willing to do extra chores and confirmations in order to make sure that all steps are followed and to avoid mistakes because of carelessness. With his great communication skills, Nate often asks questions even to neighbors to make us better informed.
Nate has extensive knowledge in all parts of the real estate transactions. He is even equipped with views on the architectural and the engineering/structural aspect of the houses because of his civil engineering education. Most importantly, Nate thinks as though he were the buyer and shares his analytical views based on his finance education and experiences having seen hundreds of houses. He clearly informed us the trade-offs between the various decisions we should think through. He went over with us in detail every line in every document we needed to sign and approve. He kept track of every step of the investigations and documentation. He had built great networks with all necessary people and entities and he was able to use these networks to answer and help when we needed it.
Nate is much more than an ordinary real estate agent. After a few months of working together, somehow, Nate has become my agent “for life.”
