Saturday evening, most people are relaxing after a satisfying work week. Some may even be popping the corks off wine bottles celebrating a moment or just enjoying life.
Tonight I was at a celebration of a different kind, a home inspection. This week I worked with a buyer who is relocating here from the Washington D.C. area. It was her second time out and the first time to seriously look at homes.
We spent two days touring all the homes that fit her specific criteria in the Highlands Ranch area. On Thursday night we wrote the offer which was accepted late Friday. With one full day left before she went home, we scheduled a home inspection!
Much to my surprise, John Braddock the inspector who I can always count on agreed to do it Saturday night, the first time he had available! We were delighted at the prospect of my buyer being able to return home with her mission accomplished! So we accepted the appointment.
My hat goes off to the family with young children who agreed to leave us in their home for 3 hours on a Saturday night! They were most gracious and accommodating, in fact they left us fresh, home-made chocolate chip cookies! Yum!
The inspection went quickly as John called in his partner, Ryan. At the end we celebrated by clinking our water bottles in a toast to us and all the people that pull together to make a real estate transaction happen.
Thank you to the buyers, sellers, inspectors, listing agent, relo manager (who accepted the offer at home after hours), assistants and the future helpers; appraiser, title reps, closer and the neighbors who will welcome the new comers to Colorado!
Oh I forgot the mention Frances Wehner, the loan officer who took time out of her Saturday to travel to Park Meadows Mall to meet with the buyer as a convenience as to not interrupt her shopping!
Tomorrow my buyer goes home satisfied. She visited all the schools, registered the pre-schooler, shopped in her future grocery store, got a pedicure, went to the mall and purchased a home! All in 5 days.
Now that is what I call a productive week!
Welcome to Denver!
