We were incredibly fortunate to have LouAnne Ludwig of Westcoe Realty as our Riverside agent for our purchase of two homes and the sale of one. As a long-time resident of the area, LouAnne gave us invaluable insight and information on the Riverside/Inland Empire areas, schools, businesses, and various communities to help us in selecting our homes. Over the years and with frequent moves, we have worked with many agents in the 8 homes we have purchased/built/sold across the U.S., and she is unquestionably our top agent. LouAnne listens to our needs, what we like and don’t like in properties and works tirelessly to find just the right homes to preview. She did not waste our time showing us properties that didn’t fit our criteria. She is insightful, extremely detailed and organized in her professional role as a real estate agent. We also appreciate that LouAnne has always been very accessible and responsive in all our communications with her.
Our first purchase with LouAnne was in 2001. Unfamiliar with Riverside, we relied on her to help us conduct a long-distance search as we prepared to move from Washington D.C. With tight time constraints, she was able to identify and arrange for homes to review in several areas of Riverside and helped us find our Highridge home. Our initial walk-thru revealed items that needed to be repaired, replaced and refinished—LouAnne took it upon herself to oversee this while we prepared for our relocation from D.C. We actually conducted the purchase of our home as we were traveling across the U.S. with LouAnne sending documents via FedEx to our next destination along our route. Needless to say, everything went smoothly and we were amazed to find the home ready and beautiful when we and the moving van arrived! In 2003, we were transferred back to the east coast, and again called on LouAnne to help us list/sell our home. She was able to find purchasers within one week who paid nearly double of our original purchase price! LouAnne also worked to screen and identify an agent in Atlanta to help us with our new home purchase in Georgia.
Our more recent home purchase with LouAnne was in 2009. We wanted to relocate back to Riverside from Spokane, WA and needed her help in finding a home. We flew in for a short weekend and visited several homes for sale, but the inventory for what we desired was limited. LouAnne continued to look for homes and while on her home computer one evening, she found the Victoria Grove property (in a gated community near Lake Mathews) she had taken us to see had fallen through at the closing table and had just been relisted. She called us immediately and recommended we put in an offer. We agreed and she faxed us documents to sign and guided us on our offer. LouAnne presented the documents to the selling agent first thing in the morning which they naturally countered, then with her assistance, our counter was accepted. We know this home sale would not have been successful were it not for her timely and tenacious actions on our behalf.
Anyone looking to buy or sell a home would be very fortunate to have LouAnne Ludwig represent their interests. She’s incredibly professional, works hard representing her clients, takes great pride in her work and is genuinely a good person to work with. We highly recommend her to any prospective buyers or sellers!… MoreLess
