So, Ron and Sandy, we’re sitting at the closing table. You just sold a house and bought a house. Congratulations!
Thanks! Thank you!
So, let me start out by asking you, why did you decide to sell?
We just really wanted to downsize. Our kids are all gone and it was time for us to have a more reasonably sized home. We felt like there was a lot of extra marketing that went into selling. I loved seeing my home from an aerial view. That was kind of neat. Something that is really unique. You kept in touch with us, letting us know what you were marketing, what you were doing to sell our home. And that’s nice. Sometimes you don’t hear from anybody. You don’t know what they’re doing.
Facebook, there was websites, there were different social media; instead of just the MLS. And there were statistics behind that; I’m more of a statistical kind of guy, so. We had it listed with somebody else previously and it was just on the MLS, and there was a few showings and then it just dropped off and we had nothing. So it was really nice to see that there was other marketing besides just the MLS because I think that just makes a difference.
I loved getting weekly emails so we knew exactly what was going on with the house. Any time you had an update you kept us informed. You know, good or bad news you were happy to get us involved so we knew exactly what to expect and what was happening all along and that made a big difference. We never had to call you and say, “What’s going on?”
Well, the nice thing too is even if we were looking online, it just seemed like there was a lot of houses there. It’s overwhelming, and trying to wade through all those! Whereas, when we set up our criteria and you were able to send us a list, I think that just saved us huge amounts of time. I mean, I don’t how we could even, before we were spending hours and hours in front of the computer going through all the different listings. It was kind of really stupid actually! A big waste of time, and we’re super busy so it saved us a ton of time and helped us really narrow down what we wanted. And sometimes I felt like you guys asked us questions that maybe we didn’t even realize we needed to consider that helped us kind of narrow our search and helped us to focus a little more. I thought I was going to have to look at 30 or 40 homes because, well, (She likes to look at homes!) I didn’t realize you guys would be as good at what you do! You just found exactly what we wanted and narrowed it down to a few homes and I think we only looked at 5 homes before we were able to find the home we wanted so, that really, again, saved us time. Time’s money!
I would definitely recommend you, definitely!

So Adrian and Jane, we’re here at the closing table. You just sold your house. How do you feel?
I’m excited!
Good! Why did you decide to sell your house?
We decided to sell our house to move into a bigger house and a different neighborhood.
Ok, great! And I think you were trying to sell it by yourself before.
Yes.
Joel contacted you. So why did you decide to use a Realtor?
Joel contacted us, and we interviewed a couple different Realtor’s but we liked his best. We needed to get it sold quickly.
What did you like about our Marketing plan?
He just seemed the most thorough and I liked his Marketing plan, I like his pictures, and I liked the Facebook ads.
Did he prove true to his word?
Yeah! Yeah, yeah, yeah!
Good!
Our first Open House had like 35 people through.
So what have you been telling your friends and family about the experience?
That it’s just been really easy! I keep telling, I have actually told everybody that you guys have been extremely easy to communicate with. Like, every time I have emailed or texted you, you really immediately get back to us really fast.
How did the process go? Was it as smooth and as hassle free as you wanted it to be?
Yeah, I mean, considering I was camping when we were getting the offers. Like, everything by phone, it was easy.
The electronic signatures?
Yeah!
My final question is why are you thrilled with the results?
We sold our house, quickly! I think in two weeks; it was just under two weeks from the time it went on the market to the time we had that offer. So really fast!
Well great! Well congratulations!
Thank you!
And we wish you all the best in your new home!
