I recently helped a young couple with two children purchase their first home (in Santee, CA)! At one point, I helped them cancel one short sale transaction that was going nowhere (and get their deposit back). Soon afterwards I helped them negotiate the purchase of another short sale transaction. This one was a little crazy, as we were racing the foreclosure department to get the short sale approved and closed. Once the short sale lender actually approved the short sale, we only had about three weeks before the approval expired to complete the transaction. Luckily, the buyers had already completed their due diligence in investigating the property, etc. We actually closed escrow one day prior to the short sale approval expiration date. Everyone (agents, escrow, transaction coordinators, title rep, notary, buyers, and the loan officer had to work closely to coordinate the closing just in time). Also, to add insult to injury, the seller's agent decided to change the compensation to the buyer's broker two days prior to closing escrow (The short sale lender had approved a specific amount, and the seller's agent decided at the last minute he wanted to keep a higher percentage for himself than was previously agreed). This change would have cost my clients a couple thousand dollars more in closing costs, but after some discussion I was able to get escrow to reverse the change. What a week!
I asked Brianna if she would mind writing a testimonial for some of my potential clients to read, and here is what she sent me:
Justin provided excellent service to my husband and me while we purchased our first home. He tailored home-buying to suit our needs. He was available whenever we needed him (even while on vacation). He was extremely thorough on every step of the process, so we never felt like we were in over our heads. Most importantly, we always felt comfortable; never pressed to make a decision we weren't ready to make. Justin was an amazing buyer's agent and I would recommend him to anyone.
