Client Profile: Chris & Christine

Story: Chris & Christine are engaged and set to tie the knot this fall. They knew they wanted to be in a home prior to getting married so that they didn’t have to deal with the stress of home hunting and wedding planning at the same time. We casually began looking last fall and put offers on 2 other homes before finding their perfect home pictured above! This property was a short sale and we originally tried to steer clear of these because of the lengthy process; however, upon viewing this property & falling in love with it, Chris and Christine decided it was worth the wait. There was a higher offer on the table when we submitted ours; however, after negotiating, the seller and mortgage company proceeded with our offer (and we even lowered our sales price in the counter offer!). Chris & Christine's patience paid off! They purchased their first home in March at an unbelievable price, a fabulous interest rate and will also be getting $8,000 back from the First Time Home Buyer's Tax Credit!

Home Stats: 3 Bedroom & 2 Bath Ranch in McDonough with a huge, private backyard (perfect for their furry child, Midnight)

Chris & Christine's Advice for Buyers: "If it's meant to be, it will happen - there's a reason for everything. We looked at quite a few homes before we found the perfect one. Throughout the home hunting process we got our hopes up and hearts broken when we would find that our 'perfect house' was already under contract or we were out bid. Just when we were beginning to get discouraged and wondering if we would ever find a house, we found the perfect one! Thinking that the other houses were the 'perfect ones', we came to find that the one we purchased was far better in many ways than the previous. We didn't have to compromise anything that we wanted and still got the 'hottest house on the market' (those were the words of the listing agent!) at a great price! With all that being said, the best advice we can give to other buyers is to be patient and to never settle for something less than what you want. If you're patient, you will find a home better than you ever imagined you could own!"

Testimonial: "Rebekah is truly an angel sent from above! Even after 20 phone calls a day, frantic emails and constant questions, Rebekah remained patient and professional and was able to answer all of our questions. Being first time homebuyers, we were truly clueless but Rebekah walked us through each step and still kept the process fun and exciting! We will definitely use her to purchase or sell any property in the future!"
