Francine worked with my wife and I to find our perfect Condo. Firstly, we had many specific requirements that were deal breakers for us, all of which made Francine's job very tough. We wanted a Condo, top floor, corner unit, with a balcony, 2 bed/2 bath, very well appointed common areas, within a certain price range, etc….. Francine worked with us to ensure that we got EVERYTHING we wanted and under our target price. Francine never shirked at our requirements; as a matter of fact she was very encouraging and complimented us for knowing what we wanted. Francine has many strengths, her strongest is ensuring that her client is happy. She really takes a vested interested you and gives you her all. We appreciated the time that Francine spent researching and selecting places for us to view that were viable options. Every time we went out to view places we got closer to finding our dream condo. We were very efficient in our condo search process because of Francine's due diligence, excellent communication skills, flexibility and resourcefulness. Francine assured us that we would find a condo that met our requirements and we accomplished that objective with her at the helm. Francine exceeded our expectations throughout the process.
Francine is very knowledgeable about the key factors for first-time home buyers, such as: * the offer submission process * the counter-offer process * dealing with the seller/seller’s agent * the escrow process * the closing process * optimum ways to obtain and manage financing and financing requirements * requirements specific to the purchase of a condo * insurance requirements * to name a few. Francine is very professional, dedicated, knowledgeable, and an absolute pleasure to work with. She is an excellent negotiator and we believe that because of her positive approach she was able to negotiate several additional items for us, all adding value to our investment. Francine gained our trust with her approach, insights and her attention to detail. With such a large investment, Francine leveraged her strengths to break-down a huge process into manageable parts, and guided us step-by-step. This approach gave us a sense of comfort and really made what is supposed to be a painful process an absolute pleasure. Zip Realty has an asset in Francine and we have an asset with our relationship with her, thank you Francine for everything. We look forward to working with you again on our next real estate deal.
