We recently completed the successful sale of our home in a very distressed Bakersfield, California housing market. More Less
I was extremely impressed by the two people who were absolutely critical in making this transaction successful; Tina Plath with GMAC and Shay Brandon Burke with Touchstone Realty.
Tina took over the relocation coordination literally at the last minute in Chevron's transfer from Sirva to GMAC. She did a remarkable job in keeping the momentum going and minimizing any re-work on our part. Obviously we were very concerned to be so far into the process and hear of the change in relocation companies. We were extremely pleased with the outcome -- Tina did not miss a beat.
Shay BrandonBurke was simply the best Realtor we have ever worked with !! (and this is our 11th relocation in 25 years). It was not luck that we were able to sell our house in this market or that we received much more than the appraisers or other experts ever thought possible. While we held firm on our minimum - He was working tirelessly with open houses spending many of his weekends over a three month period to find us a buyer. When the purchase nearly fell through because of the Buyers agent, Brandon was able to recover the deal through his relationship with the buyers. We would recommend that GMAC include Shay Brandon Burke, Touchstone Realty on your preferred list for future Chevron relocations to and from the Bakersfield area.
Thank you again -- we could not be more pleased with how this relocation was managed.
