First time buyer
Having read many stories about how hard it can be to buy a place in bay area, I prepared for a tough battle. However, I was lucky enough to meet Dorothy. She guided me hand by hand throughout my buying process. She is professional, knowledgeable, proactive, responsive and warm hearted. With her help, I won on the very first offer I ever put. As a first time buyer, this was way beyond my expectation.
A week after we started searching, I came across a place I really liked. At the early stage, Dorothy provided me a lot of data of near by sold places, helped me make sense of the listing price and evaluated the feasibility to bid on the place based on my conditions. She even reached out to the sellers / owners of those places to get more information. As we moved forward, she worked late hours to help me prepare all the documents, and again, shared a lot of valuable marketing trending data with me to help me make the right decision. At the time of offer, she even presented to the seller agent in person. In parallel, she proactively reached out to my bank officer to collect all the useful information to make my offer stronger.
After the offer was accepted, she prepared a buyer's timeline. This is super helpful for a first time buyer to understand the whole process and get prepared for all steps. The closing was very smooth because of her detailed arrangement.
Dorothy is very compassionate. She always thinks from my stand point. She's really concerned about what I'm concerned about. This makes me feel that she's not just an agent but someone who is part of my family. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
