Sometimes finding the perfect place to call home takes longer than expected. Marisa and Michael were ready to upgrade their home, the couple decided it was time to sell their current house and find a bigger place that fit their needs and budget.
The couple began their hunt three years ago by visiting open houses. That’s where they met Susan, “she was very personable and very comfortable to speak to,” Marisa recalls. Susan stepped in with some much-needed real estate guidance and started engaging with the couple right away by sending them listings.
When it came to their new home, Marisa and Michael had very specific needs, they needed their new home to be bigger than their current home, it couldn’t be too old, the couple didn’t want a fixer-upper, it had to have a double garage and they wanted their new home to be located in a good neighbourhood. With Susan’s knack for finding the perfect properties for her clients, Susan knew she could find the ideal home that met the couple’s criteria.
Continuing their search, Marisa and Michael acted right away when the right home was found. It was the only offer they put in during their three year property hunt. The couple decided on a house that was on the market for a while. “Susan negotiated for us which was really good,” Marisa recalled about the purchase.
After purchasing their new home, it didn’t take long for the couple’s current home to sell. Marisa and Michael did all the right things when it was time to sell, they listened to Susan’s advice on packing and decluttering prior to the listing. They even allowed all showings even though it was inconvenient for them, especially having small children.
Having a real estate agent that understands your needs is an important part of the process. Trusting Susan and listening to her advice helped the couple find their new home and if Marisa could give one tip to buyers it would be, “don’t be so picky about the small things, look at the bigger picture.”
Working with Susan was like a dream come true for Marisa and Michael, “she made the whole process very easy,” Marisa said about their experience. “She’s like a friend and we would 100% recommend her.”
