Short sale success in East Cobb

We had a wild ride on this one! Shunai wanted to sell her house in Tucker and buy a home in East Cobb in the Walton High School district.

I listed her home in Tucker and successfully got it under contract. We intensified our search for the perfect home in the Walton High School district. We found a home in the Easthampton neighborhood, a great swim/tennis neighborhood in East Cobb, close to The Avenues. It was a short sale. There were multiple offers…ours was the winning bid!  Then the waiting started…..month after month with no word from the bank or the agent!  Finally, after four months of waiting, we got the good news…the short sale was approved. Shunai was working with an excellent lender, Jack Levin with Regions Mortgage so we were ready to close immediately!

Congratulations on your new home Shunai!


This was an amazing experience

“For me this was an amazing experience if you consider how complicated it could have been with life as we know it. There isn’t a thing I would identify as something that should have happened differently.

A few of the things that were most impressive to me were:

  • Recommendations for service providers – lender, appraiser, inspector
  • Communication style – prompt/concise
  • Hugs – not sure this comes standard or if we got the deluxe package.

Thanks again for the terrific experience. You’ve taken what is normally an extremely stressful situation and turned into one that was actually quite enjoyable. Look forward to tossing back a few bottles of wine with you in our new place.”

Becky was a lifesaver

“Becky was a lifesaver! My husband and I began our house-hunt in September of 2009 with another realtor and, unfortunately, were disappointed with our realtor. After seeing many houses, it seemed that our realtor never narrowed down what we were looking for and thus, we went on a wild goose hunt for many months. We decided to end our search for our dream house until, we happened upon Becky’s website at the end of May 2010. It was very informative, professional, and we were impressed with what we saw. Subsequently, I contacted Becky to meet in person and the rest is history!

During our first meeting, Becky sat me down and went through a listing of homes in our target area and price to get an idea of what we were looking for. Then, she emailed me homes based on our specific wants and needs. She was the consummate professional and ALWAYS available when I contacted her. Because of this, we were able to find our dream home in a matter of weeks and closed on our house in exactly one month. It was definitely a wonderful experience working with her. She is very knowledgeable of the Atlanta area and always one step ahead of what needs to be done.

We just wanted to personally thank you, Becky, for all that you have done for us. We greatly appreciate it and will keep in touch. Thank you!!”
