Buying a newly constructed home can be an intimidating process...especially if tasked with selling a home to make it possible! Justin was invaluable in making that happen.
When seemingly overnight, we went from not being in the market for a house at all to stumbling upon a newly constructed home that made us extremely interested in seeing what else the market had to offer, we looked for a realtor that only represented home buyers. It was important to us that we work with someone who was unconflicted and would have our interests at heart. We contacted the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents, who put us in contact with Justin; both in hindsight and throughout the buying process, we would say that working with Justin was one of the best decisions that we could have made. From start to finish, he was extremely honest, knowledgeable, and helpful.
From our first conversation, it was clear that Justin took his job seriously, and was personally invested in the buyers with whom he worked. By asking extremely thoughtful questions upfront to get an understanding of our real estate needs and past real estate buying experiences, he was able to fully meet - and even exceed - our expectations throughout the buying process. Armed with the knowledge of what we were looking for in a realtor and a home, Justin served as an incredible resource to us as he helped us identify homes that met our requirements, and put us in touch with a stellar loan officer who shared his depth of knowledge and meticulous attention to detail.
With potential buyers lining up around the corner for the home in Del Sur that ultimately caught our eye in early December, it felt like a race against time. We found that the holiday season hadn't deterred anyone from looking for a newly constructed home. In spite of high demand and the builder's preference for buyers without contingencies, Justin negotiated extremely reasonable offer terms on our behalf.
When selling a home and buying another at the same time, the stars rarely align on their own...with only six weeks to sell our home (to buyers who also had to sell theirs), our experience was no exception, and it was Justin's tireless efforts to coordinate all of the moving pieces that ensured that everything came together the way that it did. There was a lot to do and not much time in which to do it, so constant communication was crucial. Over the course of an intense six weeks, Justin remained closely in contact with our selling agent and the sales office for our new home, as well as our loan agent and escrow agent. Answering emails at all hours of the day and night, he truly worked tirelessly on our behalf, and we never felt that he was anything other than on top of our transaction every step of the way - even while he was on a family vacation for the holidays! With Justin checking in at least weekly, and multiple times a day in the home stretch, we never felt out of the loop. Ultimately, all of the pieces fell perfectly into place as scheduled, with our buyers completing the sale of their home, and our purchase closing the following day.
Now nearly two months "settled" into our beautiful new home, we are incredibly grateful to have worked with Justin. We still have a lot of boxes to unpack, but whenever we clear them all out, he'll be one of the first on the list for the housewarming party!
Exclusive Buyer Agentsdo not list homes for sale and never represent sellers. They have no "inventory" to try to sell you. They can represent you in purchasing any home. They are specialists at representing buyers only on the buyers' side of the transaction. Exclusive Buyer Agents work to get buyers the best price and terms when they buy a home.
