Happy Home Buyers
So many things about buying a home are stressful, overwhelming, and scary, especially if it’s the first time. Lucky for us, we had Stephen Mercer to guide us reassuringly through the chaos. Stephen is not only a great real estate agent, but he also understands that the decision to buy a home is an emotional one. He is thorough, smart, patient, and funny. He is discerning and critical while also being supportive and positive. Our search for our first home had a few bumps and snags, but Stephen never doubted that we would find what we were looking for.
This review is long overdue, but we wanted to take a minute to say that buying our home with Lisa Velenovsky Hayashi was a wonderful experience. We didn’t anticipate the hectic housing market that we would be entering starting in January 2021, and as first-time homebuyers, we were so grateful to have Lisa to explain everything step by step. It took us several offers (10+) to find our home, but Lisa was always so encouraging, and was genuinely excited with us when we were the winning bid!
"Cliff is an amazing, realtor and really listened to my needs and found me a home I am so happy with! He was very responsive in our communications and provided multiple listings for me to be able to make a sound decision. I will for sure recommend him to my friends and have him help me when I am ready to buy a property!"
They are exclusive buyer agents so there are no biases or conflicts of interest. That’s what really appealed to me.
Right away, Cliff said, “let’s have fun! let’s enjoy this process. He really took the stress off of us which we really loved!
First-time buyer? Or, were you turned off by your last experience with a Realtor? Feel safe and supported again by using an "exclusive buyer's agent" Thank goodness a friend referred me to them! We moved to Silver Spring, MD in late 2018 and were ready to buy a house for the first time...I had some trepidation because from afar, and for many years as a renter, the process of actually buying property had seemed intimidating and fraught with conflicts of interest. What I learned is that one CAN avoid those risks and fears (which are for real) - but only by working with an "exclusive buyer's agent" like Vic and Marshall. They truly represented us, with no hidden allegiances to the seller. They don't work with sellers, at all! They're all about the buyer and fighting for them...And I could feel that difference...
Victoria and Marshall are absolutely the best! My wife and I were first-time home buyers, and they held our hands every step of the way. They were always patient and literally made us feel comfortable to ask them anything. The market currently (2021), is insane. It takes experts to help and strategize on creating the right offer. Victoria and Marshall are skilled and experienced in making sure their clients have a fighting chance to compete in this market. We not only gained a great home, but we also met a great couple who we call friends.
Thank you, guys! If we had to buy another house tomorrow, I have no doubt who we would call!
