Bought a home in 2014 in Plaistow, NH 03865.

When we decided we wanted to look at homes, we went online and found a house we were interested in. We didn’t have a realtor, and coming from Massachusetts, we didn’t know of anyone that had a New Hampshire license. We ended up sending a note to two agents that came up on the house listing. The person that responded first was a woman that said this house is no longer available. She didn’t say anything else like, please let me know if you are interested in looking at other houses. The second person to respond was Katie Brown. She also let us know the property was no longer available, but that she would be interested in helping us find our dream home! That was December 1st. For two months, Katie, myself, my husband, and sometimes our two year old trudged through snow looking for our new home! We looked at so many houses, and in all different locations. Katie knew what we wanted, and I trusted her. She would send me house after house! She told me we need to look at all kinds of houses, even though I was set on living in a colonial, with all bedrooms upstairs, a big living room, and a dining room. On Sunday, January 12th, after having had to move the date around because of several snow storms, we made our final trip to look at several houses! We looked at foreclosed splits, capes, houses that needs lots of work, houses that were a little over our budget, and a short sale colonial. We drove in many different directions, and through 5 towns! On Monday, January 13th, we put an offer on the short sale colonial! We went through all of the inspections, and working with the bank to make sure everything was good. During another snow storm, myself, Katie and my father met at the house to do the water test, septic inspection, and home inspection. After two hours, and several phone calls to the selling agent, we had to reschedule the septic inspection because the selling agent didn’t know where the leaching field was, and she was too lazy to call the sellers to find out. The following day, Katie went to the town hall to find out information on the septic, and called the septic company to get any information that would help us. We were finally able to do the inspection. When we got the water test back, we found out we had arsenic in the water. We decided to pass on the house. Two days later, Katie called up back and told us she worked with the selling team and they decided to put a filtration system in the house to remove the arsenic from the water! We put our offer back in on January 30th. The selling agent lacked communication, and most other human qualities, throughout the entire process of buying this home. The only thing Katie Brown lacks is a negative bone in her body! She was in contact with me almost every day! She went on vacation, and would get her in her car to drive 20 minutes just to give me an update because she didn’t have service! She bent over backwards to make this house our home! Finally, on August 20th, we closed on the house, and have been working on turning it into our home ever since! I tell EVERYONE I know; if you plan on moving to New Hampshire, use Katie Brown at Sue Padden Realty as your realtor! We knew from the beginning of this process, short sales take a long time, they could take 3 months, or they could take 3 years. Our short sale took 9 months. Had Katie been the seller’s agent, and our agent, our short sale could have taken 3 months! I could write ten more pages on the things Katie did for us, or how she was the backbone of this whole process. I could write twenty more pages about how terrible the selling agent was! Instead I will describe Katie Brown is three words. She is Optimistic, Compassionate, and Resilient.
