Often when buyers are moving locally within Chicagoland it’s from one suburb to another. In this case the buyers found Corinne’s Barrington web site and after working with other buyer agents was looking for a more genuine Realtor. Their experience with three other agents had been all about the sales and nothing about the buyers goals for a very specific property. They did not have to move, they did not have to sell to be able to buy and so it was all about finding that perfect property, and a patient Realtor who cared was what these buyers really needed.
The buyers interviewed Corinne Guest, Managing Broker of Barrington Realty Company to see if working with the fourth Realtor was going to be any better. At that point that had already let the third Realtor know their relationship was finished. Corinne and the buyers interviewed for about an hour and an appointment was set to view a home they had seen at an open house. The buyers said after the showing that it was night and day the difference in the entire appointment.
The search for the buyers home continued for a while. A contract on one house was canceled due to a very troubling inspection report, the second home tried for is where the buyers live now. It’s a beautiful contemporary property on a double lot in Deer Park Illinois, which affords the buyers all the Mother nature they desire. With ponds, trees and landscaping, there is abundant wildlife in a quiet corner of this desired village in the zip code of 60010.
The time came for the buyers to become sellers, a different side of real estate for them, they had lived in the prior home for 32 years! The question of who to help them never even came up. Corinne Guest was going to be the Realtor to sell the Schaumburg home.
After following the advice from Corinne Guest about what to do to make the home appeal to buyers, which did involve a new bathroom, removing old carpet and show-casing the hardwood floors, a whole house re-paint, and some landscaping changes so the property had super curb appeal, the house was ready to place on the market for sale.
The property received an great offer and closed on December 23rd 2014 just 36 days later. The sellers were delighted, they had thought they would be carrying the property through winter.
Throughout the time taken to find the perfect house and conclusion of the sale, the buyers have become good friends with Corinne and found some common interests, not least of which are Sand Hill Cranes. As the sale concludes the sellers gifted Corinne with a Sand Hill Crane ornament for her Christmas Tree. Such a thoughtful gift and now it was Corinne’s turn to be delighted.
