I started working with Andy on my home/condo search almost two years ago…despite a never-ending changing of plans, he has provided me exemplary service every step along the way.
Early on, Andy connected me with appropriate lender resources to navigate my complicated personal finances. After doing so, it was clear I was not going to be able to get my purchase completed in a traditional manner.
As I retooled my strategy, Andy stayed in touch, helping me navigate the market and refine my focus. Sure enough, there was light at the end of the tunnel.
The day came when I was able to make a cash offer on a foreclosure I had been waiting to hit the market. Andy got me out there right away, wrote up an offer, and expertly navigated the process (it was a VA foreclosure AND a condo, making the whole situation even more complicated).
Despite his best efforts, I lost the deal to a higher bid from an investor. At this point, I was pretty despondent. However, Andy told me to keep my head up and stay ready – something else was sure to come along.
Just a few weeks afterwards, an even better property hit the market. Even though I was sure I had no chance – and didn’t want to get my hopes up – Andy explained the differences between the foreclosure process and a standard transaction. Namely, there were multiple things we/he could do to make my offer stronger – and take advantage of the human factor that was now more in-play (as opposed to the foreclosure where we couldn’t even talk to the agent).
We put the offer in immediately. Although there were multiple bids again – some higher than mine – my offer ended up being the winner. Andy literally “won” me my home with his professional knowledge and sales expertise.
After I had a ratified contract, he continued to consult with me and help me connect with the right resources to solve complicated tax/ownership issues. Everyone was phenomenally skilled and professional.
I will certainly look forward to working with Andy again – and referring him to other family/friends in the future.
