John and Eileen,
It had been a dream of mine for some time to own my own home. I had always thought about it but never took action to make it a reality, that is until I heard John speak about the first-time home buyer savings through the state and thought, well now is a good a time as any. So, I went and met with John, and from the very beginning he made me feel very comfortable and informed about how this entire process should go. I had also let John know, that I had a friend who was in the process of buying her first home in Orlando, and the nightmare that she was going through, and how I was very reluctant to move forward with a house, as hearing her stories and the hoops and hurdles she was going through made renting sound a lot more desirable.
John assured me that this would not happen to me. He could not have been more correct. Shortly after meeting with John and figuring out my budget, I met with Eileen. Eileen listened to the things that mattered most to me while looking for a house, and helped me see past some imperfections to the possibilities some homes had.
We went looking quite a few times, and never did I feel rushed or pressured to settle on a home that was not exactly what I had dreamed of. Luckily for me, I did find my dream home, and she was patient with practically all my family members coming to look, as well as me being the indecisive person I can be and needing to go back 2-3 more times to make sure. When we made the offer, she told me a closing date of February 10th, again in the back of my mind thinking this would all go up in flames due to the crazy experience my friend had. Long story short, throughout the entire process of getting the mortgage and finding the house, I feet beyond lucky that I had such an amazing team of John and Eileen to do so much on their ends to ensure things go smoothly, and they did.
I am beyond grateful for the 2 of them, not only for the amount of knowledge they both have and happily pasted on to me, but for all the behind the scenes work they both did on my behalf. I did close on February 10th, and am now a firm believer that buying a house should not be a nightmare, it was such an amazing experience for me thanks to them, and I have and will refer anyone and everyone I know to them. They truly are a dream team, and again, thank you for helping me find and get into my perfect home.Jamie Kirschner
Back in 2010, when my wife and I bought our first house we had a terrible real estate agent that left much of the research, negotiations, and work, to my wife. To make matters worse he was sexist and dismissive and overall it was a very bad experience to say the least. So this time around we wanted to make sure we had a real estate agent that would work for us, and not the other way around. Luckily, we found Eileen.
Over the last several months, Eileen has made herself available night and day, weekend or holiday, to answer phone calls, texts, emails, even come to our home after hours. Eileen made arrangements for us, called the other real estate agent, and even looked up prices for repairs we needed to make. She even offered to watch our baby for us!
On the purchase side of things, we now love our new home and our neighbors told us they’re made at us because we were able to get it for such a great price.
On the sale side of things, we received six offers within 12 hours and were under contract for above listing price within 24 hours. When the buyer’s original financing fell through, Eileen made several phone calls and another lender was quickly found. In the end we were still able to close ahead of schedule.
We love our new house, and we’re happy to have sold our old house so quickly. This experience was night and day compared to our prior experience, and we will be happy to refer Eileen to our friends and family as the look to buy or sell their home.Andrew Miller
Thank you for helping us find our first home. As first time homebuyers, we had ideas of what we wanted, but also felt we had no idea of what we were doing. Understandably, we were equally excited and nervous throughout the process – we could not have gotten through it without you. We greatly appreciate all the time and patience you gave us in shopping properties – a process that spanned over a year. You were very flexible in meeting with us to view properties at times that worked for us. You were supportive throughout the process and never pushy. In the end, we thought you perfectly balanced two things: (1) allowing us to form our own opinions about a property; and (2) providing your own thoughts and advice to make sure we didn’t miss an important detail. You will be an easy referral based on this experience and we look forward to helping others find the best realtor around.
Thank you again for all you did for us.Christopher D. Keever & Jessica Mounsey
Eileen helped us find the home of our dreams! She was always available when we called and took us to as many homes as we requested. She helped us with the negotiations and got us the best possible deal! She also was very knowledgeable in keeping us from buying the wrong home!
You will not find a better more experienced agent!Ken and Carol Kretschmer
Thank you for doing such a great job for my son, Bryce. He and Ashlee are thrilled with their first home.
Much continued success to you in the future.Jamie Everett, Vice President, ABR, SFR, Realtor, Action Pro Realty
