Happy Key Day!

By Kate Smith, April 19, 2021

Meet Jen and Nat! They were referred to me by past clients and had such a quick an easy time finding the right house. We looked a couple days, and they got their very first offer accepted. This is unheard of in this market! Inspections happened, things were smooth, everyone was happy, and then boom…curveballs with financing and a low appraisal in the final 1.5 week of the deal. IT WAS STRESSFUL! The good news is we collaborated beautifully with the lender, the listing agent and the seller and was able to get creative to get through the curveballs. It is never fun to have that kind of emotional rollercoaster, but it sure does make key day that much more exciting! We cheers, we celebrated, and we drank champagne in their lovely backyard to celebrate.

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!
