As recent retirees who had lived in our last home for 20+ years, selling our home and finding a new home that would better meet our needs and wants for this life stage was a daunting task. Fran helped guide us through every step of the process, from updating our 110 year old home to maximize buyer appeal in the most cost effective way, to helping us find and purchase the home that would best meet our needs now and into the future. She paid attention to every detail, providing us with a list of things that needed to be done in order to best market the house and helping us get ready to go active on a timely basis, knowing that potential buyers would most likely be a family with school age children who would want to have their children enrolled in Grayslake's excellent schools at the beginning of the school year. We were not quite done with some of the painting when it was time for the photographer to shoot the home, but she worked with him to ensure the photos were top notch and the flyers would be ready for the target "go active" date. When we saw the photos, we were astounded at how beautiful our home looked. The listing was active and the yard sign was in place on Friday morning and by noon that same day, our first viewing was scheduled for the next day, Saturday. The offer came in on Sunday and Fran handled the negotiations like the pro she is. She hustled to get all the pieces in order quickly to enable us to proceed with purchasing our new home, sequencing closings so that we were able to close on both houses and move on the same day.
Fran worked tirelessly to make this transition as smooth as possible. She was sensitive to our desire to not waste money on needless renovations while spelling out the items that really needed to be updated. We highly recommend Fran Glatfelter for all your real estate needs. You will not find anyone who is more dedicated to helping you fulfill your housing needs. Thank you Fran!
