Off Market Mid-Century Magic

By Olivia Rush, July 20, 2021

Each and every client’s situation is unique. While all Sellers share the same goal – to get their house sold – there are multiple paths to this end result.

I recently had the privilege to work with good friends of mine whom are dealing with several huge life changes. Less than ideal circumstances surrounded the sale of their beloved home. Not only was it bound to be an emotionally challenging experience, but it was fairly abrupt and needed to happen quickly.

We had originally planned to take it live. The house is an absolute mid-century architectural dream – vaulted ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, stunning views – but it also needed some work. Because of the location and the style, we also knew of several potentially interested buyers.

My clients ultimately decided to sell it off market to a colleague who made them an almost-too-good-to-be-true offer. The relief of a quick, sure thing requiring little prep-work and accommodating their schedules and needs outweighed the potential for a slightly better unicorn offer if they took it to market.

During a challenging time of change in their lives, they were so grateful that the selling process was one less thing to worry about. I love to be able to counsel my clients to make the best choices for their specific needs. Congratulations to my Sellers!

As your trusted guide through the buying or selling process, you can expect me to customize my services to your specific goals and preferences, much like I did for my students during my ten years as an educator. My clients’ goals vary. A couple retiring to the Big City after 30 years on 22 acres. A woman purchasing her first home independently. A couple upsizing to support a growing family. Two friends pooling their resources to make their first investment possible. A couple navigating a divorce and the sale of their home. A refugee family with limited English setting down roots in this country. Deaf investors looking to maximize profit on their flip.  A couple selling the home of their daughter who has lost her battle to cancer. A family relocating from across the country and buying sight-unseen.  These situations all require unique, dynamic, and holistic approaches. Everyone has different needs, and it is my top priority to meet my clients where they are. For me, real estate is not transactional. It is deeply personal and inevitably life-changing. While each client requires a tailored strategy, my work ethic is unwavering. With me you can always expect organization, tenacity, responsiveness, dedication, and hustle. A gatherer of resources, a communicator of all options and possible outcomes. As your advocate, I will be brutally honest so you know what to expect. A skilled negotiator, I’ll consider every angle with your dreams and goals in mind. My clients often end up feeling like family. I am honored they trust me enough to return to me as their needs change and refer me to their friends, family, and communities. What are your real estate goals and dreams? Call or text me so we can meet to discuss your vision.
