I had the pleasure of working with this gentleman for quite some time as we looked and waited for the perfect home to come up on Tumwater Hill, WA. After a long search, we found the right home at the right time!
He recently closed on his new home, and he wrote this kind review for me on Google:
“Francine is everything you could ask for in a realtor, start to finish!”
Short and sweet. But this is how our working relationship was because I had to work with him through an interpreter. For me, I had to choose my words carefully and be as exact and precise as possible, not just for my client but also for the interpreter. Yes, we did have some miscommunications but fortunately, we both asked each other enough questions to hammer out those misunderstandings quickly.
I’d like to thank…
If you are not a Realtor or a recent home buyer or seller, you may forget that huge relief of getting to the closing table. At times, it really seems like you just won an Oscar! And therefore, you need to give a speech to thank those that helped you get to the finish line.
I’d like to thank…..my colleague and listing agent, Karen for her relentless follow-up!
I’d like to thank….the sellers for doing a stellar job in preparing their home for sale.
I’d like to thank….Theresa, the lender, for her persistence! Another lender basically gave up on my client when we hit an obstacle. This was no challenge for Theresa.
I’d like to thank….Annette at the escrow company who went over the settlement statement through the interpreter! Wow – awesome job as most people don’t understand that thing no matter what language it’s in!
And I’d like to thank my client who didn’t give up after a few disappointments in the home search process. It isn’t easy being a buyer in a seller’s market.
Thank you, everyone! We have a happy new homeowner!
