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!
“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.”
