"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!
We spent a lot of time with her over the four months of our home search (nearly every weekend) and learned a lot about what to look for (or look out for) and actually got pretty good at being able to decide within minutes if a house was right for us or not. We appreciate all the late nights she spent putting together offers before a review deadline.
Lisa also recommended a few mortgage lenders, and we ended up going with one of her recommendations because he was available nearly 24/7 (which was crucial in the crazy housing race), and offered a much better interest rate than what we could get from our bank. After four months of searching, we ended up with the perfect house for us.
Even after closing, she helped us set up an inspection and stayed with us through that, and has still been available to answer questions/offer recommendations in our first few months of home ownership. She also gifted us a one-year home warranty, which has offered peace of mind (and has already paid for two repairs), since we purchased an older home. It’s clear that Lisa really cares about finding the right house for her clients and making sure they truly feel at home.
We don’t plan on moving any time soon, but if/when that comes around, we’ll be calling Lisa!"
