In late 2013, we were finalizing our plans to relocate to Houston from NYC. After reading some online reviews, we contacted a few realtors including Connie in November 2013. We flew over and met up with different realtors around that Thanksgiving weekend. Our first impression of Connie was very good. She is very witty, quick, reactive and responsive. Those attributes are something we need in a realtor representing us. We need someone who knows the sense of urgency and getting things done. After our first meeting, we knew we will have a good time working together with Connie.
The following year (in 2014), after we both moved to Houston and getting situated, we started our actual house hunting around late April/early May. Being new to a city, we changed our minds about the location of the house. We looked at areas inside/near the loop: Heights, Champion Forest, Bellaire, Energy corridor. We looked at townhouses and single houses. We looked at suburbs: Katy, Cypress, Sugarland and even as north as Magnolia. Yet, Connie was very patient and not pushy. She understands our challenges as a first time home buyer and newbies to the H-town.
We put in total of 5 offers on different houses in different areas. Couple offers fell off due to the competitive market. We were in the option pending stage with the 4th offer before we cancel the deal. The house has severe framework and foundation issue. When we were on the verge of thinking we will not find the right house, we saw an ranch we both felt in love with. This was the 5th offer.
We closed on our house in late September. After the house closed, there were some incidents where she has to communicate with the previous owners and she took initiatives before we asked. We are very appreciated of Connie taking her weekends and time to help us finding the perfect house! We strongly recommend Connie for anyone who is a first time house buyer and/or relocated from else where. Connie is very considerate and will work with you and will guide you through the process. We are very pleased we have found her and would like to say a big "Thank You" during the holiday times.
