Efficient in a tight market

We worked with Simone to buy a home, which involved a lot of
schedule stretching and help as inventory was really tight and moving
FAST, and we were living and usually working several hours away. It
was not an easy market or situation. Simone took the time and our
feedback to learn what we wanted in a house — I have worked before
with agents who try to tell you why you should like something, rather
than listen to what you like, and the difference is huge. Simone focused
on our ideas and preferences, and even figured out ways to search
listings very efficiently in a way that turned up exactly the sort of
houses we wanted. In a tight market we didn’t have the luxury of time,
and Simone was wonderful about scheduling viewings on short notice
and at odd times, or even getting info for us when we couldn’t be there
to view a place. Simone is =very= knowledgeable of the OLT area, and
wasn’t afraid to give us the skinny — good and bad. It is tremendously
useful to hear positives AND negatives, instead of working with a
salesperson. She knows the local schools very well. She would also
freely volunteer when there was an aspect of a property or process that
she didn’t know, and would do the legwork to dig in and figure it out for
us. At the end of the day, we got a property we wanted, at a price we
were happy with, and we are very happy here. Success! – John K.
