Let’s talk about a Win-Win!

By Tracey Henkels, March 22, 2019


Ashlee and Thomas were basically my perfect clients. Practical and pragmatic, they were level headed,  listened to my advice. Let me tell you, having clients with such a great attitude was an absolute delight for me!

Ashlee and Thomas were ready to move in together and needed a little more elbow room than she had in her previous 600 sq/ft bachelorette pad. They knew they wanted a quiet home in a sweet neighborhood in a great school district. We looked at a lot of gems but none of them spoke to Ashlee more than this delightful home on Lancaster. With plenty of green space surrounding and a view of the woods, they knew it was the one. Ashlee would have room for her kitties and Thomas had a great space to paint.

This transaction was a great example of both sides working together so that everything could come together seamlessly.
