I had the pleasure to work with Carol & Lee to sell their home in Deer Park. Lee was an original owner that had her home built-in 1964. Before we put it on the market I advised their family to de-clutter. After 3 weeks we still didn't get any offers so the next step was working on the price but we also needed to have the rugs pulled up, stain the floors in the Entrance Stairs, L/R, D/R, and the Hallway. After that was completed the sale of her home came right after. Lee was 94 yrs old and she wanted to sell her home and move out of state where her older sister of 96 yrs lived. They both wanted to be together and live out their golden years together!
Their success stories started Jan 2021
In 2020 at the beginning of the Covid pandemic, I had the pleasure of working with Naomi and Dhan Paul. I will never forget the conversations we had when they explained to me their everyday nightmare working as Nurse Practitioners. After looking at several houses they finally saw this house and immediately knew that it was the house for them. Upon exiting this home they said, "Karen, this is the home we want." They got an accepted offer, moved in, and started making memories in their new home!
One of the very few good memories during Covid!
I met Shanique in 2014 when I represented her father and found their family a home in North Babylon. Fast forward to 2020, I received a call from Shanique who was now looking to purchase a home of her own as a single mom and wanted each of her children to have their own bedroom. This was a new beginning for Shanique. After several disappointments of not having her offers accepted, we finally found a perfect home. Unfortunately, Shanique put her trust in a Mortgage Broker that REALLY disappointed her and after 70-80 days now tells her that he could not get her a Mortgage. Believe it or not, it wasn't because of her credit; there was another individual that had the same name with bad credit and the Mortgage Broker didn't know what he was doing. From there I recommended Shanique to a Mortgage Broker who not only fast-tracked the loan but managed to close within 40-50 days!
The Smile On All Their Faces Tells The Story
Kathleen, Rob, and their children, Dylan and Lacey were neighbors of mine. They wanted to find a home in Commack. The current housing market has strong demand but a limited supply of homes, so I knew
that I had my work cut out for me! I noticed that a particular home recently came back on the market because the previous Buyer was denied a Mortgage Loan. Lucky for us! I called immediately. They
looked at this house the very next day. It was just what they were looking for. I was informed that this home was being sold by 3 siblings whose parents were the original owners from 1957. The siblings
were so happy to sell their house to a young couple like Kathleen and Rob, knowing that their home would be the start of many new memories.
Working with Ken & Amy was so stress-free from the beginning to the very end! The day we met, and we sat down together, I asked for them to declutter by getting a storage facility before I did an open house. I went to the Township right away, to make sure COs were in place. I was informed that the Garage conversion had no CO, but I wanted to make sure if the front deck and railing were on the survey, along with a copy of the Solar Panel Permits. Within a couple of weeks, it was ready to go on the market and we had our 1st Open House. At the Open House, I disclosed to everyone that there was no CO in place for the Garage Conversion. We received multiple offers, over the asking price and we all sat down and decided what Buyers would work for them? The major hiccup we had was NO communication with the Buyers Bank and it took a long time for the Buyers to get clearance. All that matters is in the end it all worked out.
Working with Ken and Amy in a “sellers’ market” was a complicated process because houses on the market had multiple offers. We had a few disappointments, and we were out-bide with higher offers but in the end, we got an accepted offer. I am a true believer when it comes to Real Estate, “If it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be.” We got an accepted offer on a house that had been totally renovated and the footprint of the house was idle for Ken and Amy’s family. At the closing, I took a picture so that I could print it out, frame it and give it to them. The day I decided to drop off the framed picture, I called Ken and Amy. They mentioned they were having a BBQ but much to my SURPRISE when I pulled up there were 4 of their new neighbors outside having a BBQ party! The picture speaks for itself!
