I have to say that working with Jedidiah has been a pleasure. In our first month of looking we had 3 different homes we were interested in that turned into bidding wars on their 1st day on the market. Jedidiah was great at giving us advice and keeping us realistic about the homes that fit our budget and had the features we wanted.
We looked at one home that we liked that was at the very top of our price range, and decided that we could make a full price offer if the seller paid closing costs. It would stretch our monthly payment to the top end but we liked the house. Jedidiah talked with the listing agent and found out that even though it was the first day on the market there were already 3 other offers on the home. After discussing with Jedidiah what we would need to offer and what it would cost monthly we decided not to pursue it. I appreciated that he kept us grounded so the "emotions" of the process didn't drive our decisions. He was right there were “other homes out there.”
I was impressed with Jedidiah's easy going nature during the shopping phase of our purchase, and when we found a home and it came time to negotiate he approached the negotiating stage like he was buying a home for himself. We were buying in a desirable area with a lot of competition in a “hot market”. He was able to get concessions on closing costs and inspection repairs. We ended up with a home in the neighborhood we wanted, with the features we wanted, and a payment lower than we had budgeted and are very happy.
I enthusiastically recommend Jedidiah. He took the time to listen to what was important to us and showed us homes that fit. Buying a home is quite an experience and is one that we don’t do very often. I cannot think of another realtor I would want to guide me through the process and to work on my behalf.
