Blog Buyer Nightmare on Elm St.

Nightmare on Elm St.

By Jessica LeDoux, October 9, 2019

Okay, that may be a bit dramatic, but it is October, and this one definitely had surprises around every corner. That is not the story that needs to be told because the frustrations, the stressors, and the repairs are now complete, and they have the keys to their amazing new home. Buying a home can present a thousand possible bumps.  We successfully navigated through the ones that came our way. Heidi and Jeff maintained composure, relied on each other, and trusted me to get them there.  It is impossible to predict what handful of bumps will come your way when buying a home. With the right representation, these bumps can be calmly explained and navigated with clear choices instead of reactiveness.  I am proud of our journey from pending to closed because what could have been a real nightmare was instead stressful bumps on the way to homeownership.  Congratulations!
