My husband and I began our search for our first home in February of 2011. Our first agent was unreliable, unresponsive and wasn't helpful in guiding us as first-time home buyers. We eventually stopped looking because we felt we didn't have enough guidance. We picked the search back up in the summer of 2012. After inquiring about property on Zillow, Moe (the listing agent) responded with a call to me the same day. He talked me through the intial in's and out's of buying your first home and what our options were - and he wasn't even our agent at this point! This type of personalized and honest service was what we were looking for and, from that day forward, we only worked with Moe.
We looked at several houses over the course of the next few months with Moe. He was attentive, honest and extremely flexible to our work schedules (usually needing to show a house in the evening or even meeting us at a restaurant to talk about the house). He helped us narrow down our "must-haves" without his own judgement or personal opinion. When we finally found the house for us, he was with us as we talked about "all the changes" we would make and offered his honest opinion through experience. He made us feel as though we were making the right decision and not getting in over our heads.
Our negotiations only took a few hours with Moe and the listing agent. Moe was able to get honest answers for what the sellers were looking for (their bottom line) and it cut out a lot of back and forth. Our contract, inspection and closing went flawlessly (and quickly!) and I have to think that with Moe's attentiveness and experience this was no accident.
We will absolutely only use Moe Archembault for any future real estate needs. We were pleased throughout the entire process and would highly recommend him for any buying/selling needs!
