As first-time home buyers we engaged Pat and Elinore to act as buyer's agents. Their advice about house / property conditions, and potential re-sale impact was invaluable, as was their advice about pre-approval and referral to an excellent mortgage-broker. They were fearless negotiators on our behalf and just as important, they were patient with our 'newbie' expectations, insecurities and lack of experience.
When we had to sell our parents' house there was no question about who to work with. Their advice about staging and pricing was right on the money. Their recommendations for people to assist with cleanout and minor repairs were solid. And again, they were empathetic to our feelings during a difficult time. We were more than happy with the price and we closed three months after the house was first listed.
If we need the services of a broker in the future we know who we'll use. Thank you, Pat and Elinore!
