Not so long ago the first offer you received on your home was going to be the best, or at least most of the time. Over the last year my experience shows that is no longer the case. Why have things changed and how does it affect a home sellers negotiation and offer consideration?
Lets first look at the basics of an offer so you understand all the components that you, as a home seller, need to … [Read More...]

I am often asked if Lake Barrington Shores is either a senior living community or an active adult community. By senior living I am assuming you mean assisted living where there are staff on hand to help the residents. By active adults I assume you mean a dedicated 55+ community where only residents of either 50 or 55+ can live. The answer to both questions is no, Lake Barrington Shores is neither … [Read More...]

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.
Corinne is a very down to earth and realistic person. She wanted us to be comfortable with our purchase from a financial standpoint as well. 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. Rashmi Kapur.
