Our situation is unique because we are a military family and live halfway across the country. We were informed by our tenant at the end of December that he would be moving out and rather than seek another tenant or risk the house being unoccupied, we decided to try and sell it. We were very anxious. This would not be an easy task: we had a mortgage obligation, it’s winter, we do not live anywhere near our property, it’s winter, we had a tenant residing in the property, and it’s winter!
We called John Anderson and he patiently listened to us explain how we came about the property, what we did to it while we lived there, how we came to have a tenant living there, and our present situation. He immediately had a plan come to mind.
On January 2, 2019 John listed the house but had to wait to enter the property for pictures until our tenant returned from out of town. Once he obtained those picture and the listing was live on the internet, he received many inquiries and after 5 days he was scheduling showings. After 10 days, we had our first offer. With genuine care and precise information, he let us know all the details of the offer. We decided to be patient and he respected our wishes. That patience paid off as shortly there after, we received a second offer for what we were asking!
I believe John’s negotiation skills are unmatched. His expertise of the area he works, extensive knowledge of various loan types, and his detailed attention to us and our home made it possible for us to be under contract by the week following the offer.
His communications skills and ability to coordinate between us, the inspector, the buyer’s agent, our tenant, our contractor, and the title company made our lives so much more smooth and relaxed especially since we weren’t even there.
He masterfully completed this transaction and kept so much in mind while we were dealing with some hard deadlines.
I highly recommend John Anderson if you need your property sold or are in the market and want a realtor who will listen to you and work hard for you to get what you want and in a timely fashion. There’s no doubt we weren’t his only clients during these 55 days our home was on the market. But he sure made us feel like we were the only people on his mind every time we called or texted or emailed him.
