Fantastic urban NE home for fantastic clients!

By Esmé Harbour, October 1, 2019

I met Michaela and Dave at a open house for a listing of mine. They loved the style and location of that house, but not the layout or size. While that house wasn’t right for them, we quickly got to work looking for one that was. We searched in SE (though Dave knew he was a NE boy at heart). We searched away from the urban core (though Michaela knew she was a urban girl at heart). Ultimately we ended up finding the perfect house for them, and on the same street as the house where we originally met! This house has everything: fantastic inner NE location combined with fantastic size and layout! We went to work writing a competitive offer and got the sellers to accept before they held the first open houses that weekend. While I’d love to take credit for getting our offer accepted so quickly, I’m pretty sure it came down to Michaela’s stellar letter to the sellers (she’s a writer by trade and hobby, plus she just loves the house)! I’m so honored to have been a part of these fantastic folk’s journey to a fantastic house.
