“I highly recommend Nancy for your real estate needs. As a single father of a young son, I wasn’t really sure about buying a home at that time. However, after speaking with Nancy she really helped me understand the value of a home in terms of raising my son in a safe and stable environment on a kid-friendly street. Once I decided to buy a home, Nancy helped me identify homes that matched my needs and wants all within my budget. We looked at numerous homes and she always kept me focused and informed on the pros and cons of each home we looked at. After finally finding the home I wanted, a foreclosure, that needed tons of work, she helped me out maneuver several contractors interested in the property and then guided me through the process of obtaining a complicated loan product that incorporated some of the renovation costs.
Once in escrow she really proved to me the value of her experience, knowledge and patience. During escrow, my lender on the East Coast was hit by a hurricane and shut down for several weeks. Nancy worked tirelessly to keep the deal alive even when the seller made unreasonable threats to kill the deal. Without Nancy there is no way I could have ever navigated the purchase process from start to finish.
Today I continue to rely on Nancy whenever I am thinking or doing any work on the house as she always gives me the market perception of what renovations make sense and those that don’t. She also knows so many contractors that she is a valuable resource well after you get the keys to the front door. She is truly the best!”
