we went on a year long journey trying to find a house. After being disappointed with the first realtor we found Gerry. About 50 houses later we found a short sale...with two mortgages! I don't recommend short sales AT ALL by the way. Anyhow, this was a rough roller coaster ride. Gerry was always so patient with us and never showed any frustration, even when I wanted to throw my hands up and say forget it! When we found a house we made an offer ...found a lender online, again I don't recommend doing this to save a few thousand dollars it's just not worth it. The first lender was such a jerk to both Gerry and us that in the bottom of the 9th my husband fired him. Found another idiot online that promised he could do whatever we needed in order to close. Gerry specifically told him if you can't do this don't start. NO PROBLEM he said...Well he didn't. He was also rude to us and Gerry. Which is why I recommend going with a local lender. Oh also as closing started he went on vacation...couldn't get a peep out of this guy. After all the ups and downs she didn't deserve to be treated like a child by some out of state jerk who after promising he could close told her to "just file for an extension" That doesn't usually work with a short sale after all the time we'd spent doing this. So Gerry dug into her own pocket to by the grace of god get us our extension. While some people might say oh well realtors get commission ...if we added all the time/frusturation spent on this deal she probably got 5 cents an hour on this job so don't even go there with me! This woman is batman, there really is no other way to say it. Thanks Gerry for fighting as hard as you did for us.
