It was simply a delight to work with Pam.
Her unbelievable patience and endurance over a more than 2.5-year search period must be some kind of mini-record! She helped us crystallize what we really needed in a home. Along the way, she patiently helped us explore different options, neighborhoods, price ranges, designs, features, etc. She even helped us explore the build-vs-buy route. When we found something that didn't meet our exact needs but we wanted to try to figure out whether we could modify it to meet our needs, I really appreciated the fact that she was able to help us think through the possibilities for modifications or upgrades. At the end she led us to the perfect purchase for us - different price range, neighborhood and design from where we started. But just what we were looking for all this time!
Pam's excellent knowledge of the local market and where prices were trending in the different neighborhoods was invaluable. She helped us navigate past a couple of options where we would have ended up over-investing (relative to price development in the neighborhood) if we purchased and upgraded to meet our needs.
The amazing thing is that Pam's legendary patience turned into incredible drive, focus and speed once we decided to make an offer. She marshalled us through the offer process, sales agreement and negotiation on final price with surprising swiftness. She offered great advice to help us negotiate final terms with the sellers. She then helped push the lending side to be speedier when that process dragged on a bit, and aligned us, the sellers and the lenders on an extension when that was needed.
All and all, Pam was an excellent adviser to us as buyers. Her knowledge, professionalism, relentlessness and negotiating skills helped us to a very successful outcome.
We recommend her without reservation.
