My wife and I closed on our dream house yesterday, after a long but successful short sale! I’ve used Duffy Realty several times before to sell a house with great results. This past spring, my wife and I decided now was a great time to start looking for a larger and newer home, given the buyer’s market (in terms of price and interest rates). Looking through the internet, we stumbled across a house that we wanted to see….NOW! Lesa from Duffy met us the next day, we liked the house, so she put us in touch with Justin Trotter. Justin walked us through putting together the offer, which was somewhat more complicated than normal since the house was a potential short-sale. Justin took care to make sure we were well protected in the contract, and worked with the seller’s agent to make sure we all clearly understood the terms that we were agreeing to. Then the fun began….
Over the next several months, Justin was extremely diligent in following up with both the seller’s realtor and my wife and I EVERY week, so that we knew of any status changes. The purchase was dragging on and on, but Justin stuck with us. After many months (5) of waiting on the seller’s bank, we finally received an approval for the short-sale! We then went through a lot of hurdles with my lender, which made the race to the finish line very complicated and nerve racking. Throughout all it, though, Justin was very professional, and kept in communication with me and my wife, the seller’s agent, and even my mortgage broker, to help bring everything to a successful closing.
As of today, we’re the ecstatic new owner’s of a fantastic house, that we bought for a fantastic deal…and it wouldn’t have happened with Justin and Duffy Realty’s help.
