If you are looking for someone with vast experience who is a consummate professional, someone who will stand by you, firmly in your corner, as you try to take that life-changing decision to buy a home, then I would strongly suggest you go straight to Ann. I'd heard from friends & family that buying a home was likely a long-drawn out, difficult process, and I'd have to be prepared for a long haul. But things happened in right earnest and in double quick time, once I started working with Ann. Being a first time buyer, it did take me a while to figure out exactly what I wanted, and Ann provided great guidance and direction, while allowing me to gradually zero-in on the type of home, location & other parameters. Ever attentive to detail, the home listings that she would send my way, were adjusted subtly to meet evolving criteria. The thing with Ann is that even though you are technically just a client, she takes you in and treats you like family. This was my first home buying experience, and I felt very much like family, as I took those steps towards my home purchase, with Ann. Right from giving me her instinct and gut feel for all the properties that we checked, while allowing me to form my own conclusions, down to helping me through every other step of the way - the Home Inspection, the Mortgage process, settling in and home maintenance, Ann goes way over & beyond, in everything that she does. I met Ann by chance when my Dad located her through Zip Realty: I feel blessed to have had her as my agent as I took this special next step. She adjusted to my schedule and pace efficiently and with ease : her response turn-around times are very short, and in today's market where moving fast means everything, having Ann on your side is definitely a big asset. I'd like to thank her on my entire family's behalf : I type this from the living room of my new home, and every time I wake up to blindingly bright sunshine that streams through its windows, I thank the fates that brought Ann along, to help me take that next step!
