How can we possibly thank you for all you have done for us?
Our relationship started when I contacted you in 1998 when Bob's mother had passed away leaving her house to us. Because we weren't sure what we wanted to do, we decided to lease the house.
We decided to sell the house in the summer of 2005 hoping to get in on the hot sellers market. But we had signed a lease that wouldn't expire until mid March 2006. Because you had continued to send us housing updates and newsletters (and calendars) for 7 years, I decided to contact you via email. You were more than willing to help us construct a time line on when to notify the tenant and what would be involved.
Upon taking possession, we determined there was going to be a great deal of work to do before we could put the house on the market. From the first day when you had several sub contractors on our step at 11 AM until we closed escrow you have been there every step of the way.
Since we live 400 miles away and were only in the valley every other week, you were most helpful letting the subs into the house and making sure the work was done before we paid for the work. Your list of sub-contractors was immensely helpful. Because of your knowledge of what is needed to sell a house, you were able to guide us through a maze. Everything from the regulations for the gas meter to the retrofit of the toilets. Since we don't live in Los Angeles County, there wouldn't have been any way we would have known these regulations.
We really leaned on you for your opinions on just about everything. Not once did we ever feel we were not getting good advice. We felt you really knew the neighborhood and you wanted a quick sale without giving the property away at too low of a price.
We were lucky. You found us a buyer within two weeks and we had a three-week escrow. Having bought and sold a few houses, I know that this is not norm. But because we followed your expert advice, that buyer was at the right spot at the right time.
So a Thank You just doesn't seem adequate. It is so much more that that. You have our gratitude.
Keep up the good work. There is not secret to your success. It is called hard work, honest opinions and being totally trustworthy. And we feel that is very rare these days.
Our sincerest appreciation
