Lightning In A Bottle

By Drew Burchette, March 27, 2019

Whenever I mark a listing “live” it never fails to be exciting. For the sellers it is usually the culmination of weeks or months and sometimes years of preparation. For me it is exciting to see my work come to fruition and I’m always curious how it is all going to play out. Callie and Sean reached out to me earlier this year about listing their home on NE Lombard. I’ve done a ton of listings on busy streets and the metrics of pricing are significantly different than a house on a regular, neighborhood street. Typically, they take longer to sell even when you nail the price. I set the sellers expectations as such and we were all prepared to be flexible for what was to come.

When the listing went live, I almost immediately started to get tour requests. By the second morning, most of the weekend slots were taken. Offer one came in $20k over asking (what!!). Then offer 2. More tour requests. I hosted a Sunday open house: it was a revolving door and there were over 30 groups that came through. By Monday morning I was sorting through all of the offers that came in over the last 48 hours. There was a total of 13! The folks who won just wanted it the most. Their offer was almost $48,000 over asking price and they had some sweet terms that worked great for the sellers. It was happy ending for my clients who were moving to a more county setting on a street that is way quieter than Lombard.

I arrived in the real estate business over a decade ago and have since helped scores of people buy and sell their homes. The groundswell that I created in my practice is rooted in the relationships that I have nurtured over the years. My style is educational, and I see myself as the coach and leader of your real estate transaction. My coaching is geared towards empowering you to make informed decisions that will lead to your best possible outcome. I excel at asking the questions that get to the heart of the matter which in turn enables a smooth sale process. Away from the office I am passionate about so many things, but it all begins and ends with my family. My boys are both in elementary school and parenting is an ongoing challenge and joy for my wife and I. We love to travel around Oregon, the East Coast, Mexico and beyond. My passion for surfing, kiteboarding, and fishing help to keep me grounded in life. Read more reviews
