Happy Buyers Closed on New Construction Home ~ Georgetown TX

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

My Geno and I have history with this wonderful family. When they first moved to Austin, relocating with IBM, Geno was their designated Realtor®. He sold them a home in Pflugerville and they loved working with him. They then moved to another part of Austin, as their family grew in Vista Oaks, and then again they moved to Twin Creeks.

They called me when they needed to move to Melissa, TX to list their home, because Geno retired. When it was time to relocate back to Austin five years later they called me to help them purchase a home. I referred them to a great Realtor in Melissa to sell their home. 

Last year we started looking and their real desire was to have a newer home and preferably new construction. In the five years since they left Austin the market changed drastically and it was a steep learning curve but they were savvy, adapted and had faith I could help them once again!

I introduced them to the newer communities farther out to keep them in their desired price range. They had a dear friend who is a sales counselor with the builder they liked. I reached out to him and we immediately tag teamed the Counselor at the community my clients favored. I made a reservation for my clients to be on the builder list! When the builder released more lots we immediately put a bid in and won! They moved to a rental to wait while their house was being built.


This closing was bittersweet and when they were signing we had to reminisce with some Geno stories!  They liked working with him because of course, it was a fun experience! Cheers Brian and Jeanne, I loved working with you once again! J

I’m thrilled to have partnered with my past clients and now friends on the purchase of their new home. Thinking of buying or selling? We can collaborate and you can be sure to receive honest, reliable and result proven advice. Let me put my passion, enthusiasm and experience to work for you.

They are special people and we are all breathing a sigh of relief their home was completed in a reasonable length of time. Not the case with many of the homes under construction. They are thrilled with their home and I don't think they will consider making any move any time soon!
