ADU No Longer A Potential

By Kate Smith, July 18, 2022

Congratulations to the Fox Family! Back in 2017, I had the ultimate pleasure of helping them purchase their very first home in St Johns. And to add more excitement to the occasion, we were on an episode of House Hunters. What an incredible and exciting experience. During the episode, we are seen saying, “ADU potential” an uncomfortable amount of times. Since 2017, their family doubled in size as they welcomed two beautiful babies! In May, we met at their small but mighty home and chatted over burritos about all their options for building out their home, selling their home, and buying a larger home. Then boom, the most perfect remodeled old craftsman in their ideal location came on the market. Long story short, they never added an ADU to their home, but we did find them an awesome home with an actual ADU! No more ADU potential. Actual ADU! I couldn’t be more excited for them to move out of their 792 square foot home and into their large beautiful home with space to entertain! This family is so incredible and deserve all the happiness this new home is bringing them. Cheers to this next chapter!

My philosophy about real estate is that I am here to help two parties (buyer and seller) find each other and complete a transaction as smoothly as possible. Buying and selling homes can be emotional experiences, and I am here to ensure you have a professional advocate to help you through the necessary steps. My job is to obtain the best price, terms and conditions for my client. I also believe real estate transactions are far more satisfying to both parties when closing is a pleasant experience for everyone, and my goal is to do everything I can to relieve the stress, and help problem solve through any issues that may arise. I pride myself on being a pleasant REALTOR® to work with. I stride to always communicate respectfully, professionally and in a timely manner with all parties involved. I also take a personal interest in every client I work with. The sale and/or purchase of your home is as important to me as it is to you. That is my commitment to you! I look forward to helping make your next real estate transaction a pleasant and painless experience, and hopefully even a little fun!
