My wife and I recently purchased our retirement condominium. Our broker, Dan Swift expertly guided us through that arduous process of purchasing a short sale. At times we became frustrated and were tempted to walk away but Dan Swift was terrific at keeping us focused on the prize. That prize being the purchase of the condo we wanted at an amazingly low price. In the end, we were thrilled with the purchase and most gratefull to Dan for his persistance and his patience. Might I add.....the listing agent, who shall remain nameless here, was a DUD......please note....with all capital letters. How that guy makes a living selling real estate is beyond my comprehension. Had it not been for Dan Swift professionally performing his job while picking up the slack of the listing agent, I don't know where we'd be today. Thank you Dan!
