Raven is a great realtor for anyone who is looking to buy their first home.
My wife and I had been looking to buy a home for a long time. We experienced a lot of frustration, disappointment and heart ache along the way. We had not only been looking at the wrong houses at the wrong times but we had also been talking to the wrong realtors. We gave up looking after more than a couple attempts because the experience was so hard.
Then, on just a typical day walking around our neighborhood, where we were renting, we were curious about an open house. We weren't really looking to buy a home at that moment as we were still coming down off of our last bad experience from a few months back. Raven was showing the house. My wife started talking to her about our search. My wife instantly liked Raven. Raven said that she would be on the look out and keep in touch. I doubted it because that is just something people say.
Months went by. Our infant son became a toddler and learned to walk. We once again needed to resume the search for a house of our own. Admittedly I was less than enthusiastic about going back into it.
My wife contacted Raven and it was like they just picked up right where they left off. Raven knew what we were looking for, what we needed, what we didn't need and what we could afford. She kept in contact with relevant listings while neither wasting her time, nor ours, on homes that weren't a good fit. She didn't try to sell us on anything that was clearly the wrong home or the wrong area. If we looked at a house and it wasn't the right house for us, she didn't try to push or persuade us into buying it in the hopes that we could somehow make it work.
Raven listened. She engaged in conversations with us. Learned about us. Took our small family and our space requirements into consideration. Most of all she was patient and understanding. She wasn't looking to sell us a house, she was looking for our future home where we will raise our son. She knew where we were coming from and worked hard to help us get to where we wanted to be.
When we finally found the home we've been looking for all these years, Raven stayed with us every step of the way. Every concern that I was worried about was countered and calmed by Raven's ability to not only field every question and explain every process, but she had gotten to know me and where my anxiety was coming from. Again, patience and understanding. Her attention never faltered. She made sure everything happened the way that it was supposed to happen ultimately leading to us owning a home.
The experience of finding a home and working with Raven was actually a good experience. Which was a nice surprise because I had given up on the possibility that it could ever be that way.
I would highly recommend contacting Raven. She will find you a home that fits, not just sell you a house. She listens and she understands the experience of what it's like for the first time buyer.
