Anxiety slowly started to creep in as Rob and Annabelle realized that they had just firmed up on the purchase of the perfect home for their growing brood of three kids but have yet to sell their lovely home!!!
In a matter of days, they cheerfully complied with the 10-page " to do" list that Home Stager Cristina Consulta (www.idesign10.com) had given them during the consultation session that we arranged, putting all their energy into preparing their home before putting up the FOR SALE sign on their front lawn.
There's an inside joke among real estate agents that if you want to get really busy, plan a vacation . As Jon and Sylvia were happily driving along US Interstate Highway on their way to visit family in Missouri, an agent called to say that her client was ready to put in an offer. All along, Jon was in constant communication on his Blackberry with Annabelle and Rob, updating them with feedback from agents on showings and recent activities of the listing.
The offer came in as we reached our first stop, Chicago, sent to our toll free fax # , promptly e-mailed to Jon's Blackberry which all Jon had to do was forward to Annabelle & Rob's e-mail. To make a long story short, Jon & Sylvia sold their house while on the road, all communications either via Blackberry, fax and e-mail and without having to sit down with them face to face and yet getting them a good price that allowed them to get back to their normal lives and prepare for the very exciting move to their dream home.
Jon & Sylvia happily put up the SOLD sign on Rob & Annabelle's front lawn.
Here's what they have to say about their move... "Thank you so much for your patience and dedication to finding my family the perfect home. I was really nervous and had a lot of questions, but Jon walked me through it and made me feel confident that it would all work out. I can't get over how calm and attentive you were with all of my anxieties! I bought a home and sold mine all within a month's time! It was an easy and exciting experience! Thanks Jon and Sylvia!"
By the way, did we mention that Annabelle is the daughter of a client from many, many moons ago and we recently found her on Face Book ....
