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
Shawn and Christina helped out family find our home. They were able to get us into view the houses we wanted to see in a timely manner. The are professional, thorough and efficient realtors!
I decided to take on a more fiscally responsible role. 2020 was myself-imposed deadline, so one of the things that was looming in my mind were the taxes that I was paying on my lot every year. I didn’t want to get rid of the lot when I got your letter. That letter just made everything clear for me. It helped me make that tough decision. Working with you and everybody that that’s associated with you and your organization has been great. I have no regrets. Every question I had was answered to my satisfaction. When dealing with my money, whoever I’m dealing with has to have excellent customer service otherwise I don’t want to deal with them. Whether it’s a restaurant, selling my lot, finding some shoes, I demand excellent customer service for my money. You guys are great.
I knew that I wanted to sell quickly. I did not want my property just sitting in a mix of unsold properties, so I knew that Pretty home Realty was right for me. Christina Calhoun took the ball and ran with it. We talked about pricing and what my goal was, and she listened to me and priced it very well. As soon as it went on the market, the first day, my phone was just dinging dinging dinging for viewers who wanted to view the property mainly because of the pricing factor so we met my goal.
I got in touch through my cousin who’s husband’s actually a broker. This was my first home, I really didn’t know what to do. There is so much involved in the process so I was completely lost. You know How to handle these things and explained them while putting them into understandable terms for me because this housing is completely new to me. I appreciate your honesty.
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 told them my situation where I needed to do a short sale because of finances that got out of control and that I could no longer continue with this house. I had to get rid of it and through a short sale. The Calhoun’s are very professional and they helped us to accomplish our goals. I would recommend those with different situations that people find themselves in to Pretty home realty – because sometimes you’re in a situation and it’s a private situation and you might love where you’re living but you can’t stay there anymore and you need some assistance. Christina and Shawn, when we met them, right away we felt comfortable. We felt we could ask any question without being embarrassed or ashamed and also they directed us this situation and helped us along. Actually I loved it because they were there when I needed them. When I called, they answered the phone. I didn’t have to track them down so they took the stress out of the situation.
A friend of mine recommended you and we had been talking about you. I was looking for a nice home or condominium. It was kind of difficult at first but there were so many good choices so we saw them quickly. It was a lot of teamwork involved. They got my perfect home.
I was going through a lot of different agents and I just wasn’t getting the help that I needed. I told him don’t be discouraged because he got a little frustrated. I told him to just keep looking you will you will come across that one person that wants to do the right thing. Pretty home realty had that person, Shawn Calhoun. I want this to be an encouragement for young men especially young African-American men. I mean we came all the way from Africa and we’ve done it. So can you!
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.
