For background, we had both the sale of our prior house and purchase of our current residence with Betsy after we had parted ways with our initial Realtor. Betsy worked with us at the end of May and provided value-add feedback on how to stage the house and drove a ton of traffic to the house through community open houses, had our house as “home of the month” in Belterra, and her Realtor network. We had a lot of “likes” or “on the short list,” but Betsy always remained positive and answered any questions we had. Having had excellent luck with our house sale, it was a great learning experience for my wife and I, and there is not a better teacher to have than Betsy. We found the right buyers in August and got our house under contract. Now we enter the period when Betsy was a rockstar! We found a house we knew was the one in River Place. We made multiple offers as there was another party interested in the house as well. Per Betsy’s guidance, we wrote a letter to the owner to influence their decision making our way versus the other interested party. Ultimately, they took a larger offer BUT that deal fell through, and I am positive due to the letter we wrote they seller’s agent came back to us to see if we were still interested. In three weeks time, Betsy quarterbacked an extensive list of repairs to the house with the seller’s agent which enabled us to close on the new home a day after we closed on the sale of our home. Timing is everything in real estate as I’m sure you all know but having a competent and driven realtor that is committed to your dreams as much as yours are, is just as important! I failed to mention all the house visits Betsy put up within Lakeway and River Place, and the flip-flopping my wife and I did on deciding where to live. This is the first house we bought that we had not built, so Betsy was a great agent in letting us know how to handle items that come up in a 25-year-old house.
