This year I made a decision to move, after realizing that my aging house and big yard and gardens were beyond my aging body's ability to manage. Leaving my house and neighborhood of over 25 years was emotionally difficult, but I was fortunate to have Jennifer Martin and Mark VanLiew to guide me through the process.
Jennifer and Mark gave me referrals for the work that needed to be done on my old house, which had been neglected because of health issues. They helped me schedule and coordinate the renovations and were available whenever I had questions or concerns. I sold my house the weekend it was listed, for a price well above what I expected, thanks to their advice on improvements that would not only entice buyers, but added value.
I anticipated a long search for a new home. They arranged for me to get daily listings for houses that fit my criteria. Not seeing anything I liked, it was suggested that I spend a Sunday afternoon looking at a few that had some of the features I was looking for. After viewing half a dozen houses, it became obvious to me that I needed to change my criteria. As a result I found the home I wanted within the week. My new home is in a maintained community with major living area, master bedroom and laundry room all on the same floor. Since the house is only four years old, I don't anticipate any major repairs or renovations for quite some time. It is also close to shopping and restaurants with access to major highways. I enjoy the community activities and it didn't take long to make new friends. I couldn't be happier.
Jennifer and Mark prepared me for every step of the process, from renovations and inspections, to the daunting paperwork. They were always responsive to my needs, and were professional, knowledgeable, and my best friends through the entire process. I highly recommend them for your real estate needs. They will not disappoint.
