Buyer calls out “nice bulldog” on negotiating first family home

Wow. I don’t even know where to start. Buying a home with Claire was a very enjoyable and stress free experience. Claire took the time to understand both the wants and needs of my family. She worked with us for a few months before we were even ready to actually buy.

Then one day in
January she saw a home that she knew we would like come onto the market. We went and saw it and immediately fell in love with the home. (This was the first home we saw). However, after looking at the home inspection report, we knew this home had some issues. She wisely advised us NOT to purchase this particular home.

My wife was devastated at the time. However, Claire kept looking. Soon there after we found a HUD owned foreclosure. It was pretty beat up, but not beyond repair. But it was a home that met both our wants and our needs. Claire skillfully advised us on how to bid for this home. We won the bid and she was able to skillfully manage through all the paperwork that needed to get done to purchase this home.

Claire and her team are not only professional, but they really care about their client’s needs and wants. Claire would respond to me both late at night and early in the morning. She would text, email, and phone call. This woman has all the tools to get you into the house you want and has the team behind her to offer a truly delightful home buying experience. She’s also what I like to call a ‘nice bulldog’ when it comes to negotiating. She’s sweet as pie, but when its time to get serious, she has no problem being stern and straightforward with people to get her clients what they want.

I strongly recommend Claire and her team to help you navigate the home buying scene in the North Chicagoland area.

Thank you Claire for all your help. My wife and I are very happy with our purchase.
