My Love and I were referred to Lisa by some friends that had just bought a home and were singing her praises. I know a lot of people in real-estate so we had many options, but we decided to stay away from friends or family friends, just incase things would not go smoothly. Like I said, our friends LOVED Lisa and they said we would too. From the moment we met Lisa, we knew that they were right and we all clicked instantly. We were first time buyers too so our budget was not amazing being around the 250,000. Of course we had a long list of wants,(3 bedroom, 2 full baths, garage, finished kitchen, a yard, central air, etc...) more than we probably should, but we had done our research too so we knew what we could get for the amount that we could spend on the Eastside of Milwaukee or Shorewood. Lisa was is sooo patient and one of the most down to earth realtors I have ever met! She always had our best interest at heart, showing us so many homes, never minding that we were picky and wanted to see something else. We put in a couple offers that fell through (multiple offers that were cash, we weren't) but she kept us positive, always making us feel optimistic that our home is out there and if wasn't meant to be it wasn't meant to be. We can cannot control things that are out of our control. Well after working with Lisa since early April, we finally have our first home! A 3 bed room, 1.5 bath finished baths, finished kitchen, 2 car garage, a in fenced yard all on the Eastside of Milwaukee. We close November 14th and we could not be happier! The sellers excepted our first offer. We went in with our best offer for that home right away, Lisa said to do that because they had some other "interest" and we had been in a multiple offer situation before, so we did and that was great advice. The inventory were we were looking was not the best because of the market, but the homes that were great went quickly so we had to be aggressive but we also had a max that we were going to spend on what we thought the house was worth, and we didn't want to go over that. Lisa helped us with what she thought was a fair offer, and now we will be ready to celebrate thanksgiving in our new home and start another chapter is our lives! Lisa will be our realtor for life, we could not have ask for a more wonderful person to help with an important step in our lives! Thank you Lisa, you are more than realtor, you are friend and I hope everyone has the experience that we do in buying a home!
Love Her, Trevor and Shawna~
