What?!? Really?

By Drew Burchette, February 20, 2019

By the time I toured the condo in Beaverton with my clients Don & Michael, they had already been there two times at both open house events over the weekend. It was a winner: main level living, close to the deeded parking spot in a community with a stable HOA. We sat in the living room and talked through our offer strategy for half an hour. By the time I got our offer written up there was one offer on the table. By the time they were reviewing offers there were a total of 4 in. Yikes!! I didn’t get much out of the listing agent except that one of them was cash. Honestly, I didn’t think we had a chance in hell of getting accepted.

The next morning, I saw and email from the listing agent. My presumption was that it was a thank you note for writing an offer and a soft let down for the defeat. When I saw the first line that said “Congratulations”, I was totally shocked! Now we just had to keep our promise of an “as-is” purchase and a quick closing. Inspections got wrapped up in short order and the lender got loan dox to closing with plenty of room to spare. Nothing to it! I spoke to the listing agent the day before closing and it sounds like it was all about the bottom line for the seller. All 4 offers had good terms and ours just edged out the others by a hair on price. Sometimes it is just that simple.

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
