To whom it may concern:
When we purchased our first home in 2009, we were the proud parents of one child with another on the way. Little could we have imagined the deep well of memories we would build together upon closing escrow and receiving our keys to what we would affectionately refer to as Casa Merry Quartet. Well, our quartet soon became a quintet and we re-named our home Casa Merry Quintet. Space became an issue. We considered re-modeling but were not willing to endure the endless months of construction so upon the recommendation of our outstanding mortgage broker, Jason Thibodeau, we contacted Adam and Christine Rodell.
We started the process of searching for our new home in early 2015. Of course, before buying our next home, we had to sell our first home. Adam and Christine prepared a thorough marketing plan for Casa Merry Quintet including a spot on price analysis. Next, Christine walked us through the process of preparing our home for showing. As you might imagine, showing a home with three littles living under one roof can be…challenging. She worked magic in helping us transform our cluttered home into one ready to sell, remaining patient and accommodating yet firm with us throughout the process. After entertaining several competitive offers, we found the right buyer and opened escrow.
This is when things got interesting. Being fully contingent, we were not really able to begin looking for our next home until our first home entered into escrow. That being said, Adam worked with us well in advance to get a sense of which homes suited our needs and tastes. We saw many homes together virtually and in person. This lead preparation time allowed us to shrewdly evaluate the available inventory and determine which home best met our needs within our budget. We were able to move quickly to make an offer on a home that fortuitously came on the market as we were wrapping up negotiations with our home in-hand. And the rest, as they say, is history.
What stood out most about working with Adam and Christine is that we always felt that they were there for us. Whether it was working out how to de-clutter our home, writing an offer for the next home, or getting settled into our new home, Adam and Christine never failed to show us the individual attention and coaching we needed to take that next step. Selling and buying a home is fraught with stress. Having our friends, Adam and Christine, guide us along the way made it less stressful and kind of fun. As primary care physicians, this personal attention is something we value immensely. We are proud to offer our highest endorsement of Adam and Christine Rodell as your personal realtors for selling and/or buying a home.
During this Thanksgiving season, we are thankful for the opportunity to work with good people, like Adam and Christine, who are honest, hard working, and humanistic.
