Fred helped us find and buy a home in 2010. He was very good at matching our lifestyle to homes. There were some properties that we looked at that he discouraged us from buying because we are not the best at home improvement; His ability to assess our skills and time really helped us find the home that we love and are not out of our element maintaining.
His knowledge about the current markets was also very helpful. At that time, short sales and foreclosure sales were prevalent and he explained the process to us so we knew what to expect if we chose properties under these conditions. (We chose not to go through that because we did not want to spend more time in an apartment.)
We moved to the Denver area from northern Nevada. The ZIP Reality site was so helpful in choosing homes and neighborhoods to look at BEFORE we moved. We did not find our place until after we had moved here, but we were definitely better educated about neighborhoods, prices, and availability because of Fred and the ZIP web site.
We recommend Fred and/or ZIP to anyone we know that is planning a moved.
