My husband had a job interview in Marion, which was several hours from where we lived at the time. While we were in town, we wanted to see a couple of houses, in case he got the job. We clicked the link to email the realtors for the two houses we wanted to look at, not realizing that a random realtor would be assigned. We are so thankful that the random realtor for one house was Ginger Errington! She and her husband, Tim, met us at the house and we enjoyed exploring it with them. We told them about ourselves and what we were looking for and hoping for in a house, and they did a great job at helping us evaluate that house based on our specific needs. They are an excellent team – Ginger helped me envision the flow of the house with children in it, and talked aesthetics with me (I’m a girly housewife if ever there was one) – while Tim enthusiastically checked for problems or pitfalls with the structure/wiring/plumbing/etc....
We felt an instant bond with them, and felt like they were really listening to us and truly wanted us to find a house that would suit every one of our needs. They told us that they could show any house in Ohio, and if we ever needed their services, they were willing to travel as far as Cleveland or Cincinnati, and my husband and I later agreed that we would keep their card and call them when we knew more definitely what our plans were going to be.
My husband did not end up getting that job, but a few months later, he did get a job a little bit north of Cincinnati. When we were ready to buy a house, we were so excited to call Ginger and Tim! They drove down from the Columbus area – almost 2 hours! – and showed us six houses in one long, fun day. The fourth house we saw, all four of us knew almost instantly, was ours. The Erringtons helped us write an offer right there on the kitchen counter, then prayed with us over it that God would direct and bless the negotiation process. (They already knew we were Christians who would appreciate this gesture.)
They supported, encouraged, and explained us through the processes of negotiating, inspections, and financing, then drove back down here again to be with us for closing. They made a nerve-wracking process much less difficult than I – a first-time homebuyer – anticipated! We are so glad to have had their help, and while we SWEAR we are never leaving this house that we love so much, we gladly recommend them to anybody we know who is considering buying or selling a house, and also gladly count them among our dear friends. :-)
