As it happened, we were FHA buyers looking for a house in a very frenetic market, one in which inventory was very low and most of them were short sales. Most of the the good houses had multiple (higher ) offers and we were blown out on several we really liked by "all cash" buyers. Moreover, I think it's fair to say that we were rather finicky,"picky" buyers.
Our realtor, Jennifer Garibay, must have shown us about 60 or more houses, and made many offers on our behalf. Finally , after about 6 months we were able to consummate a purchase on a suitable house in our desired area.
Jennifer, God bless her, hung in there with us all the way. Jennifer is the best all worlds. She is a cordial, sweet-natured person, who is also very intelligent and highly knowledgeable regarding her chosen profession. You will not find a more diligent, easy-work-with realtor than Jennifer. We can have nothing but the highest praise for Jennifer,and without reservation we give her a "5-Star" rating.
