Thanks for a Great Sale During a Tough Time

By Teri Toombs, April 21, 2020

I wish every sale could be as pretty in pink as a Dogwood in spring. But you know what’s even better than a pretty picture? A kind advocate on the other side who shares a common goal of doing the best for their client while playing fair.

It took months to close this sale.  M O N T H S.  With all the usual delays and a lot of extra twists and turns. My buyer was purchasing with a 1031 Exchange, adding a ticking clock to the whole scenario. Throw in an estate with unanticipated repairs needed. Right from the beginning it was a “I have my work cut out for me” type of sale. Plus the sellers are a family I know from growing up in the same neighborhood. Why is that important? It created inexplicable nuances and I’m sure another dimension for their agent to navigate. Knowing the sellers as the buyers rep, helped me put a human face on it for my buyer and I think helped close this deal. Anyways, rambling on here, but thank you to Jean and all the other hard-working agents out there who put in the extra time, attention and work to get our clients where they need to be.
