My husband and I were touring an open house in Irvine when we met Rebecca. We werent actively looking for an agent at the time, but we were immediately struck by her helpfulness, knowledge, and low pressure manner. We immediately decided to enlist her aid in our search to find a home in Irvine, and we are so glad we did! Rebecca helped us look for a home for about three months. During that time, she worked hard to help us refine our requirements and worked within the budget that we had set for ourselves. Since we had been out of the market for a while, she let us know when our expectations were unreasonable in a kind and gentle manner. Rebecca was extremely patient with us and very flexible with her time, something that my husband and I appreciated so much.
But where Rebecca really shines begins when the decision to offer is made. Her organization skills are amazing, and she does everything in her power to make certain that our offer stands out for having dotted all the is and crossed all the ts. She knows what makes a buyer stand out as being serious and properly funded.
Once the offer is accepted, Rebecca becomes a whirlwind of efficiency, handling interactions with the seller and the sellers agent, arranging appropriate inspections and repairs, getting information from the home owners association, keeping the lender on track, and coordinating with the escrow office. When there are hiccups, as there are bound to be, she keeps things moving forward. Above all else, she keeps you up to date on all the developments and reminds you of the deadlines that you yourself need to meet. This service was invaluable to my husband and I, as we have very busy lives and it was sometimes hard to keep track of who needed what when.
Finally, once things close, Rebecca does not stop. My husband and I wanted to make some improvements prior to move in, and Rebecca continues to be helpful and supportive. She has given us recommendations with contractors in the area, arranged cleaning and painting estimates, and is currently helping us get all this work done. We truly have never worked with an agent like this before (having had two other experiences), and can honestly say without reservation, that you would be hard pressed to find a better agent. Thank you Rebecca, for all you have done to make our home buying experience a pleasant one.
