We were somewhat looking for a new home. We had a very large, very nice home, but we lived in a subdivision and we wanted to have a home on a large piece of land. We were just looking around on the internet when we found a lovely home on 7.8 Acres. We decided to ride out and look at it. After seeing it from the road, we wanted to see more, so we contacted the listing agent, Craig Summers of Atlanta Northwest Realty’s Paulding & Polk Team. He was very gracious and answered many of our questions and set up a time for us to look at the home. After we viewed the home in person and walked the property with the owner, we knew this was EXACTLY what we were looking for and we made an offer. Craig worked with the seller and got our offer accepted.
There was one problem, we hadn’t expected to find our dream home so quickly and we hadn’t really thought about selling our current home. Craig had a great attitude about overcoming this obstacle. He came out to our home to have a look at it and even though we had to reschedule twice, he was very gracious. Once at our home, Craig said he thought our home would sell, but we needed to address some minor issues and one major issue. We agreed and got to work on getting these issues addressed ASAP so Craig could get our home on the Market.
Once we got all the items addressed, Craig came out and listed our home. It took much longer than expected to sell our home. Craig kept us informed of what was going on with the market and what he felt we should do about our pricing. Craig even kept the seller of the home we were buying on board with waiting for us to get an offer on our home. We did several price reductions and we finally got an offer for our home. The only issue we were truly concerned with was the people buying our home had to sell their home in order to buy ours, just as we had to sell ours to buy the home of our dreams. Craig advised this would be complicated; but together, we could work through any and all issues that arose in the transaction.
We wanted to make sure we could move forward with our purchase, so we negotiated very strongly with the people buying our home. We did come to agreement and reduced slightly to allow the seller to make some repairs, but our home was finally getting sold and we could move forward with the purchase of our dream home.
This is one of the most complicated transactions in which Craig and I had ever been involved. Even though this transaction was extremely complicated and had many moving parts, Craig was great at keeping everything moving forward in order to sell my home. He kept me updated every step of the way and he kept on top of all the items that needed to be completed in order to keep the transactions moving forward.
Not only did Craig keep us informed, he worked with everyone to address all the items that needed to be completed in order to keep all three transactions moving forward. He helped us buy our Dream Home as well as listed and sold our home in a highly complicated transaction. We greatly appreciate all Craig did to assist us in both of these endeavors.
