We decided that we would take a look at moving within the area and see if we were able to find a newer home. We loved the home we were in and would move only if we could find a good deal that allowed us to not spend the money required to update our 22 year old home. We had several constraints that would make the overall success of the move very difficult. Any offer we made would need to be contingent on the closing of our home, we needed to remain in the same school district, and we needed to be under contract within 5 weeks and the sale of our home and closing on a new home must be at the same time. We had many requirements of a new home including a certain kitchen style, four bedrooms, private backyard, 3 car garage, pool, etc. Basically we loved the home we were in and would move only if the stars aligned and we could find a great deal.
Jeff and Grace went to work and through their determination they aligned the stars. After diving deep into what we wanted, they took us to several homes to refine both our expectations and better understand what we considered important. We had two offers on our home within the first two weeks and this was after the housing bubble burst, where credit was tough and the number of buyer's limited. In addition, the move included several small children and Jeff and Grace structured the contracts and entire transaction (sale of our home and purchase of the new home) to minimize the risk to our family.
If you have a complex situation with a short timeline and need a first class team that is able to apply tremendous energy to push a deal through while helping you manage the risk to you and your family, then you need the husband & wife team of Jeff and Grace Safrin.
