Go time!

By Carly van Aart, March 22, 2018

It’s go time! When the amazing JJ Lee Kwai of Two Rivers Mortgage sent Nolan and Danielle my way in mid-December they were crazy eager to hit the road and get their first home nailed down come the first of the year. Why so quickly? Because they were expecting their second munchkin toward the end of January and wanted to bring him back from the hospital to their own home rather than someone else’s apartment. A baby and a house within weeks, who does that?! These guys do. Nolan and Danielle were rock solid and ready to make calculated decisions within minutes. One tour and a couple of offers later they were under contract on a perfectly located house large enough to hold the whole family as the kiddos grow. They took full advantage of the move-in ready condition and the fam of four was in like Flynn within weeks of baby’s grand entrance. Congrats to these decisive uber-parents on the realization of all the things!

Real estate has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. As a child I filled notebooks and whiteboards with plans of dream homes and tree fortresses and when asked what I wanted to do for my sixteenth birthday my one desire was to go house-hunting. In addition I have a strong affinity for helping and advocating for others. Nothing lights up my world like serving someone in a way that leaves them beyond satisfied! Needless to say, as a realtor I have the incredible opportunity to serve my clients with a decision that for many, is one of the largest that they will make in their lifetime. Whether buying for the first time, selling a cherished family home or relocating to this fantastic city, it is truly an honor to see my clients through their transition and make the process fun and painless. A native Alaskan, I grew up hauling firewood, working the garden and tending to the family rabbits. My childhood taught me the meaning of hard work and for that I am very grateful.  These days I am a lover of dog kisses and outdoor adventures. I dabble in triathlon and enjoy helping fundraise for local charities. I am extremely close to my incredible family even though they are spread out across the west coast. I look forward to the opportunity to foster a relationship with you and help you make your real estate dreams a reality!
