Prior to my recent move I recognized that a new home purchase can be a stressful time and when I relocated to San Francisco I found myself in a market with few homes and many competing buyers. I quickly understood the need to work with agents who understood my preferences and priorities and who had the expertise to help me make quick, but informed, decisions about placing an offer to seal the deal. I found such strategic partners in Bernie Katzmann and Mike Shaw of Herth. From the first day we were introduced they sent tailor-made search results based on my criteria and never wasted my time with properties that would have been of no interest to me and they identified homes that were must-sees for me.
I recognized that buying a home is a stressful time but when it came to making offers, Bernie and Mike gave great advice on how to navigate that stressful environment and position myself to seal the deal. Finally, because of their extensive network of professional and personal relationships, I was fortunate to find a fantastic home just as it hit the market. This gave me the competitive edge at a time when there were multiple bids coming in on the limited inventory of homes and we were able to strategically bid with a carefully structured offer. If it wasn’t for Bernie and Mike I would not now be living in my new dream home.
