Wow Corinne, You have been amazing. Corinne has been with us throughout our 1.5 year (what we thought was going to be never-ending) house search. Before we could even recognize the type of house we needed, she was on top of the game. In fact she advised us to wait and not just purchase for the sake of purchasing. In my mind I was thinking, "What kind of Realtor does not want to earn money on the sale?" But later I realized that she wanted what was best for us.
After looking at many houses, finally there was one house that really caught our eye. Right away she recognized this and began to work on acquiring this house for us. She was perseverant but never pushy. Besides all of this she is a very down to earth and realistic person. She wanted us to be comfortable with our purchase from a financial standpoint as well. Given the recent troubles with the real estate market, this was very important to us. Corinne, Veerpal and I are grateful for the advice you gave to us. Every day we are enjoying our new home and we know that this was possible because of your hard work. You were very patient with us, and I thank you for that.
