More than a decade ago I began looking for a home in the Central Valley. I just received a new employment position and I was eager to come to this area. I was living in Southern California, and to my surprise, many agents that I emailed ignored my request for more pictures or additional information, until I contacted Laura Fraser. She would send me as much information as I requested, and I did request A LOT! There were many properties I was interested in so there was a lot of communication back and forth. She was accurate with the information, and prompt. I was ready to buy at the brink of the collapse of the housing market. So when I was ready to receive the funds, the lender declared bankruptcy, and me and my family moved to the Central Valley looking for a new lender. We had four cars and two big u-haul trucks. We stayed at a hotel and had no place to park all the cars and trucks. Laura and her husband, Anthony, provided a solution for us which made it possible to patiently await the process of the new loan. All of it resolved in ten days, and we came into our new home excited to occupy it.
After a decade, I was ready to sell my home, and who better than Laura and Anthony to handle the dilemma! We met and put the house for sale, and had an immediate offer that did not go through, but ran the full escrow time frame. Laura has this attitude that takes charge and this gave me confidence in the way she looked forward to solutions, providing suggestions that would improve the possibilities of selling the house. I received an immediate second offer, which I accepted. Escrow ran its course to only dissolve the last day of the process. I cannot imagine going twice through the selling process with anybody else. I totally understood that the issues we were facing were completely out of their hands and mine. The initial buyers returned and I was relieved to see the home sale culminate a few weeks later. This process was always handled with priority. I felt as if my house was the only business they were attending to. That is not true, of course, but they made sure to give me their undivided attention on any issues I had to discuss with them. They really work as a team!
I am not ready to buy another property as of yet, but believe me, Laura and Anthony are the people I will contact to help me find it.
