Closed on Two Homes in Two Days!

By Mel Marzahl, July 31, 2020

Congrats to Marisa and Danny who just closed on two homes in two days! Marisa listed her home in Garden Home on a Friday, and the same day we all toured some homes together an found one they loved!

By the end of the weekend Marisa and Danny had their offer on the new home accepted for 10K under the asking price, and had two great offers over asking on their old place. They accepted one, put the other in back-up position, and celebrated a successful weekend of real estate negotiations!

Dealing with two transactions simultaneously is double the work, but Marisa and Danny handled it perfectly. I negotiated extra time in their old home after closing so they would have some time to spruce up their new place before moving in. We also negotiated closing credits for some repairs, a home warranty, and a professional cleaning on their new place.  Marisa’s old home closed yesterday (read the post about it here). Marisa and Danny are currently celebrating the closing of both places today on their new back porch while the dogs play in their beautiful new backyard.

Congrats Marisa and Danny!

She/Her

Raised in the Pacific Northwest, Mel became a passionate advocate for homeownership and investing in real estate after buying and selling her first home. What drew her to it was realizing the significant financial impact the right investment property can make and learning how much having a home to truly call your own can improve your quality of life. Her specialties are working with first-time home buyers and sellers yet she is fluent in all aspects of residential real estate. She is trained extensively in real estate negotiation, holding both the CNE (Certified Negotiation Expert) and RENE (Real Estate Negotiations Expert) designations. Mel knows that with all the technology available to buyers and sellers, one of the best skills a REALTOR® can have is knowing how to be a collaborative negotiator to get the best outcome for their clients. After a decade-long career working in operations and client service for creative companies, Mel earned her Broker’s license and made the move to real estate. She listens to her client’s needs and aims to treat everyone involved in a transaction with honesty and integrity. She loves getting to know her clients, their wants, and needs to ensure they get the highest level of service Mel is known for. Mel brings creativity and an eye for detail to the table with a background in art and events. She enjoys a remodel or renovation project, has a soft spot for old craftsman homes, loves helping first-time buyers, and educating her clients on the selling and purchasing process. She believes in staying up to date on market trends, technology, and tools available to real estate agents. This gives her an edge when it comes to marketing properties and communicating with her clients. When Mel is not working in real estate she is volunteering with the Red Cross, gardening, hosting dinner parties, or relaxing at home on Bull Mountain with her husband, son, two big dogs, and a handful of chickens.
