After buying a number of homes during our lives, my wife and I are aware that selecting the right person to represent our interests is absolutely crucial to obtaining the desired result without unnecessary delay or cost. For our most recent acquisition we were referred to Tom Bashe of SCA Real Estate, and after working with him and getting settled into our new home we can without reservation recommend his services.
From our first contact with him, he restored our optimism for finding the home of our dreams after disappointment we experienced when working with another agent and firm. Tom was encouraging, courteous and professional. When we first met with him to explore the options available, we found him to be punctual, thoroughly prepared and ready to show properties which addressed the needs we had shared with him in our telephone calls.
Tom showed us six properties in the area we had specified on the day of our first meeting and we found two very appealing. After reviewing our options that night, we quickly agreed on our choice and arranged to meet with Tom the next day to discuss making an offer. When we saw him next, he had already negotiated the price down a figure which corresponded to the latest comps and had our offer prepared. After going over the details and clarifying a point or two, our offer was ready to submit!
Our first offer was accepted, with closing costs allowed, and we were on our way to owning the home of our dreams. But those of you who have purchased a home before know that having your offer accepted is just the beginning of a process. We had found a home that was exceptionally well-located, in the best neighborhood within our search area and were excited at the prospect, but realized that it would be some time before the process was completed.
Luckily we had found Tom, and throughout the entire process he was readily available, either answering our calls or responding promptly to messages. He would remind us in advance of items we needed to address to keep the process on track and on time. We found Tom to be very well-connected, thorough and committed to making the experience very comfortable for us.
We have now been in our Dream Home for a year now and are still amazed by the way the buying experience was changed for us, how our expectations were exceeded and how we were impressed by Tom’s professionalism. We are very grateful to him for all he did on our behalf, and recommend his services without hesitation.
