Westridge Townhouse Just Sold for $338,000

12441 Manchester Way Sold for $338,000 on October 29th, 2019

What does a Top Producing Real Estate Agent do the day after one very scary, extended moment threatened to wreck two deals the day before?  She enjoys some quiet time relaxing in her dentist's chair while getting a cavity filled.  Dr. Olsen of Greenhill Family Dental is the best dentist I have ever had.  She is liberal with the novacaine and explains everything every step of the way.  She even has fuzzy throws on hand if you get cold and Netflix so you can watch a movie during your procedure.  Morgan, her hygenist suggested the movie Bounty Hunter with Jennifer Anniston.  It was cute.  And after yesterday's heart pounding excitement, I was ready to lie there and do nothing but chill and watch the movie.  

With a numb face, it was then off to remove a lockbox from 12441 Manchester Way in Woodbridge.  In addition to having the crap scared out of me and my morning clients the day before, I did help the seller of Manchester Way sign her home away yesterday.  It was the easiest thing I did yesterday, though it was not without it's own drama.  Turns out a FSBO (For Sale By Owner) seller was at the title company before us, an hour late for her own appointment to sign, and seemed to feel she was well versed in everything real estate and title.  That FSBO's signing turned into a three ring circus when the title agent flung open the door of the conference room and loudly asked her to leave the building.  Whoa!  

When that FSBO seller didn't leave, but continued to kick up discontent, anger and misinformation I asked the back office title agent to take my client to the Long & Foster office below and have her sign there.  I stayed behind with the title agent left with the rampaging FSBO.  I couldn't help but wonder how much easier the FSBO's transaction would have been had she hired an agent to help her understand the process.  Clearly, the crap she was finding online had little bearing on practices in Virginia, or what title insurance companies required be done with personal judgments to issue a policy on a home.

My seller reconnected with me before she left the title company, thrilled with the outcome of her sale.  We started talking in June, at which point we signed a listing agreement.  I was there to recommend contractors and finishes for her as she renovated her home.  We staged it together.  It was like putting the icing on a perfectly baked cake.  The townhouse went under contract in six days and sold for full list price.  Not an appraisal problem, or major home inspection issue experienced along the way.  

Since the buyer of Manchester signed today, the deal wasn't done until after my dentist appointment.  Now the third home of the week is sold, twenty-third home of the year for this Top Producing Real Estate Agent.  My seller is thrilled and still giggling about yesterday's drama.  Thankfully, her deal had none of it.  

Want an experienced, professional agent to guide you through the sale of your home?  Give me a call and let's get started.  Taking the process one step at a time, at the pace you need, we'll get it done.

Sad when something makes a trip to the dentist look enjoyable, right?

Hello Chris Ann - experience matters.  And to those who may think that real estate transactions are simple enough, anyone can do it....well...

Just relayed that to a seller I interviewed with today that thinks he will just get a bunch of advice from the agents he interviews and pay nnone of us.  It's all fine until someone doesn't do what they say they were going to do.
