The following appeared in my inbox this morning. It was addressed to my office manager and relocation manager. And recounts an experience that one of my selling clients had while listing and closing on her higher-end condo. These clients were awesome to work with but the following was a complete surprise and a wonderful note that helps to remind me why I love this career:
- Right from the get-go, we started getting showings and feedback as Andy’s suggested list price was appropriate.
- Andy was supportive when the inspection showed that there was mold on some drywall which we had a professional remediate.
- One of our concerns when we saw how many listings Andy had (a lot!) when compared to other agents was that we’d be just another listing. We then decided that there must be a good reason for so many people to be listing with him. It turned out that the large number of listings is exactly why we got an offer on our condo — our buyer had seen a couple of Andy’s other listings, things had not worked out and Andy suggested our condo to the other agent. They saw our place and liked it enough to make an offer which we accepted.
- Being a condo meant extra paperwork by our property management company….a questionnaire was not filled out correctly by them and our buyer’s financing fell through in early January. Andy had a contact who helped our buyer get his financial commitment in less than 3 weeks.
- The closing was last week…we were competing with new construction and great views, and to have sold a condominium within about 3 months of listing is more than we could have ever hoped for (but exactly what we needed!)
