A year ago, Ellis helped me buy my first home. One year and one month later, he helped me sell that very same home! I was worried that I would lose sale on the short turnaround, but through some combination of luck, timing, and Ellis' network, there was a buyer before my house was even on the market. It seemed too good to be true and when Ellis dug into it further, he found that there were two downstream sale contingencies that had to close before my buyers would be able to buy my house. The transaction seemed risky, but Ellis mitigated the risk by keeping a close eye on contingency periods, following up with the other agents, and even negotiating more favorable terms for me as a result. Along the way, Ellis gave me sound advice and was always available for questions. He even helped make sure the house appraised at full value--no easy feat given the rising prices in Golden Hills. Ellis turned a complicated transaction into a contract that I was comfortable with and in the end, netted me a buyer that offered $40k over listing. If I could, I would bring Ellis to San Francisco with me to help me with the purchase of my next home. With so much information on the internet, I'm so glad that my research led me to the right one. Thanks again Ellis. Deals don't come readily in Golden Hills and you helped me buy a good one in 2014. Who would've guessed we would have been working together so soon afterwards--and with such great results!
