"Yesterday, from the window overlooking the woods, I saw two Baltimore orioles and many other birds. We are very happy with this new home."
These are the words from our client, Mary, who just purchased her dream condo. It's a nice condo with an open floor plan and a main level master suite. Most important to Mary, it's close to nature and located within a peaceful, wooded setting. It's exactly the type of condo she was looking for.
How we found Mary's dream condo
When we began our search, there weren't any properties listed for sale within Mary's favorite condo community (which is a pretty common scenario in our low inventory market). So we decided to send out a few letters. We sent out 22 letters to the owners in Mary's preferred association. Each letter was written from Mary to an owner. Every letter was placed in a stamped, hand-addressed envelope, to ensure each letter would be read.
A few days later we heard back from one of the owners who had received Mary's letter. The owner said she had been planning to put her condo up for sale, but she hadn't gotten around to it yet. We arranged for Mary to tour the condo and upon viewing it in person Mary knew she had found the right one. Soon after our tour we submitted Mary's offer to purchase. The seller accepted Mary's offer, and now Mary is settling into her new home.
Using creativity and experience to find your dream home
We knew from experience this low-tech approach to buying a home very often leads to positive results. And fortunately for Mary and her husband, our letter writing campaign worked. This story is just one example from one client, but it's a great representation of the resourcefulness and expertise we strive to deliver for every person we serve.
