Five weeks ago Darryl and Elisa flew to Jackson International Airport to buy a house, but because it was snowing heavily, the second leg of their flight (Chicago to Mississippi) was turned around. After a stressful day of travel, the plane eventually was cleared to land and we started their home search later that same day.
We found a home on that snowy December visit. After securing the contract, they returned to Wisconsin to pack for their move.
Yesterday while driving from Wisconsin, they encountered a blizzard in southern Illinois. Then their van broke down. They rented a truck to bring their furnishings the rest of the way. Their sense of adventure and positive attitude kept their spirits high. They didn't want me to worry, so I didn't know about the traveling debacle until after closing. Todays' snow proved to be a minor inconvenience in the grand scheme of things, and we closed on their home as scheduled.
Central Mississippi rarely sees snow, but to see it TWICE in one winter is rare.
I jokingly told them they could leave the snow behind, but they have been here TWICE and it snowed each time!
We are not accustomed to snow in the Deep South. School is canceled, businesses close early, and there is a rush at the store for milk and bread.
It was my extreme pleasure to represent Elisa and Darryl in their home purchase.
As with most relocation couples, our goal was to find a home that met all their needs in a limited time-frame, that fit their desired criteria and price range. We met that goal before their return flight to Wisconsin. As their buyer representative, I worked with my team of trusted professionals to ensure that the home buying process went smoothly from contract to closing.
