Last spring, my wife received a job offer in Oklahoma City. We were moving to Oklahoma from another state, and we had about three weeks to find a place to live before her position started. Originally, we were planning to rent a house. However, just prior to flying out to find a rental, the Moore tornado tragedy took place. Understandably, the demand for rentals quickly reduced the inventory of rentals in the area and drove rental prices up. As a result, a couple days before flying out, we made the decision to buy a house. Since we didn't know the Oklahoma City area or the local market, we knew we needed a great agent to help guide us to listings that fit our preferences.
After seeing the reviews of The Allen Group online, I contacted Chris Allen to see if he might be available to show us some listings over the next few days. He agreed and within a couple hours of getting some info on our preferences, he was sending us listings to check out online. Over the next day, he was able to craft a solid list of options for us to check out based on our feedback. He and his team worked quickly over the weekend to schedule viewings at the homes, and he worked to rearrange his busy schedule to give us an introductory tour the OKC area. Understandably, he had a couple appointments he wasn't able to reschedule, but he arranged for Anya from The Allen Group to continue showing us properties during those times. Like Chris, we found Anya to be incredibly friendly, knowledgable, and eager to help with our last-minute search.
By the end of the second day, we had found a great house in a wonderful community near my wife's work. We placed the offer prior to flying out, and Chris continued to work hard to oversee the inspection, negotiations, and document needs in preparation for the quick closing. He did an excellent job negotiating the price and concessions with the seller, and we successfully closed on time.
Overall, we couldn't have asked for more from Chris and his team at The Allen Group! Even with the last minute notice of our trip out, the three day window to find a house, and our quick closing needs, he made it his goal to make sure we got the perfect place at a great price. We would recommend Chris and The Allen Group to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!
