I want to relay the great experience my wife Allison and I have had with Jamie as our realtor.
I have known Jamie through networking for over 2 years, and while I heard of his exceptional customer service, it was my recent sale of our current home and purchase of our new home that I truly understood.
Jamie is 100% on top of every detail and every step of the house buying/selling process. He sent us emails daily of listings that were specific to our location and budget needs. He not only sent us listings that were new to the MLS system, but also listings that didn’t have pictures, or were “coming” up for listing, but that he wanted us to have a first crack at. He was very flexible when it came to showing us houses, but first thing in the morning, and after work, as well as weekends. With a 2year old son, our schedule wasn’t the easiest to fit in house viewings, but Jamie made it happen.
After what felt like a hundred viewings, we did find a house we were very interested in, and we put an offer on. Jamie had paperwork ready that morning incase we wanted to make an offer, and was very assertive in trying the get the deal closed. As Jamie counselled to us, it’s a gamble with multiple offers, and this time didn’t pan out. Of course Jamie was very empathetic, but quickly reassured us that this wasn’t our home, and that these things happen for a reason.
In the weeks to follow, Jamie not only found our dream home, but also set us up for success with selling our current home, he came over and gave us constructive ideas on how to stage, tidy up and what to invest in for a quick sale….as well as referring us a very trustworthy and high quality painter for some touch-ups.
** The Transaction** Jamie pushed (positive encouragement) us to have our current home ready for sale 2nd week of September. We pushed hard, and had it ready for an MLS listing of Friday September 13th, with the hopes of an Open House on that Sunday. The very next day (Saturday) we had received over multiple messages from his team that there were over 7 interested parties wanting to view on the Saturday, so of course we left for the day, and by 4:30 Saturday the 14th we had multiple offers, of which we took an above list offer!
So within 24hours, we had bought our dream home and a below asking, reasonable purchase price, as well as sold our current home for above asking price.
In the days that followed, Jamie was very thorough with the process, paperwork, and went so far as to refer various other services (that he received no benefit from) such as a Home Inspector and Lock Smith.
With all the craziness that takes place during such a stressful life event, Jamie made things fun, less stressful, and organized that inevitably led to a very positive experience.
We are moving into our new home in the coming weeks, and can’t wait to show how Jamie helped us make this new house purchase our home.
Should anyone have any further questions about our transaction, or for a reference….I would be more than happy to discuss further.
