Dear Metro Detroit Home Sellers & Home Buyers who are looking to make a move in the next 30 to 90 days….
With so many beautiful homes in Oakland County, Wayne County and Macomb County we’ve likely Sold a home or know of a possible “Dream Home” that is soon to become available” For Sale”.
The challenge is – and I see this – you may not know who to turn to that can truly deliver and find the right home for you. Whether buying or selling your home, you may be tired of being too far from your friends and family. Maybe you have a place that is just too small, or you have a change in your family situation.
Who can you work with that understands your needs, that you really trust, and frankly, will enjoy working with? The biggest pain in home buying or selling is not a lack of information, but too much conflicting information. Other challenges are not fully understanding the process, not having a clear plan and not having a capable team to help you get your real estate goals accomplished.
I’m not sure if you know this and it’s common, according to the National Association of REALTORS Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, 77% of recent sellers contacted only one agent before ﬁnding the agent they worked with to sell their home. Only 64% of recent buyers were very satisfied with their recent home buying process.
UNDERSTANDING – we consult with you to understand your personal home selling or home buying needs, wants and desires
OPTIONS – we roll out the options and let you decide what is best for you
GUIDANCE– through the process of making a strong offer, negotiating, inspections, showings, etc.
RESULTS – We have developed a system of skills for our team to produce your desired results
I actually feel like Shawn and Christina are part of my family. When when I met them it was as if I knew them all the time. They were very patient with me I ask them question and they would say “I’m working for you and whatever you want me to do just let me know” I appreciated that and Shawn’s beautiful, wonderful wife Christina, she’s like a daughter to me or granddaughter so I love them both. I definitely will recommend you to my friends and family to work with them to help sell their home because of your patience and how you explain things. You do what’s supposed to be done, the right thing.
Christina contacted me from a realtor.com form. It was probably one month looking for a home. I don’t really have any complaints. Something that you worked hard to make sure of was to accommodate anything I needed. The only big concern was that the property. I didn’t have a homestead exemption so there were some issues with the having to pay the higher property taxes for the summer with that and then trying to get the mortgage company to base the escrow on what it would be next year instead. We were able to negotiate with the seller to kick in and help cover some of those costs and we were able to get get everything actually a lot a lot better than that . I appreciate your courtesy. You would ask questions and then you would follow through.
I feel positive about the purchase. I really do think that my change of homes will help free up a lot of money for my sons college as well as me not having any house payments. I was so glad to work with Mr. Calhoun, he is so professional and so is Christina, they both are so professional. I have never encountered a realtor like you guys. You showed me the professionalism, the kindness, the generosity that I deserve. I do appreciate it.
Actually it wasn’t hard to find the home it was just a matter of actually getting the home, working with the mortgage company in everything. Get the house was actually no problem. We’d be like “hey we found a home. Okay we’ll meet you there at eleven”. So it was perfect the way we found this home. Christina suggested this home that I was seeing on the website and just kind of passed through and she said “hey this house is really nice it’s move-in ready” and I’m like” really?” and she says “yes!”. It is a beautiful home it’s got a brand-new kitchen. You guys were our trail blazers and you got us through this completely. Even when we had some negative thoughts, you always kept us positive and mentally strong.
It was truly a pleasure working with caring professionals who were dedicated to my goals. I would recommend them to anyone who wants a team to work with them and not against them!
I’m writing a positive review for Shawn Calhoun. He was courteous, diligent, and reassuring. He explained the process and kept me informed. He really facilitated a positive buying experience. The process was quite easy given Shawn’s professional expertise. He was willing to address questions and concerns. He even called after the purchase to see how everything was going. I’m very happy with my purchase and appreciate Shawn for making it a positive experience.
Our conversation was so pleasant. When we started looking there were some challenges. I remember we saw a couple places and I felt like trying to find exactly what you want is tough. The home may not have everything but if it does have most of what you want you’ve got to make a move. You guys were so awesome and sending those notifications for the places we wanted whether it was in Southfield or Farmington. You guys are always accessible; that was a good thing. I really appreciated that you never put any pressure on us. You said “listen we’re gonna get it right”. We got it right! Thank you so much!
I knew that I didn’t want to rent much longer, because I knew that I probably was spending way too much money renting and I was right. I did my research else in between. Everything was just right. I appreciate you guys, it really worked out for the best.
The reason we decided that we wanted to move is because we wanted to get a little closer to our children and we wanted a little more space so we thought lets get serious about getting this done. I think it took us a less than a week …people came in to look at it & wanted to buy. There were not problems with the selling of the property at all. We sold the place so quickly. So we looked at homes, but different issues kept coming out. But everything just kept coming together I guess it was an experience, but it was a good experience. We really appreciated that the Calhoun’s were they were on top of everything, getting the paperwork done even though we had just a short period of time to get that done.
Working with the Calhoun Team was fantastic! They were always on top of stuff even when weren’t. The whole process was a little confusing but every single question we asked (and there were a lot of them) they answered quickly and properly, and it was fabulous!
