"A First-Class Experience"
Meet the Wohlers - Andy and Nicole Wohler were needing a change of scenery and after doing extensive research on the best cities in America, their research pointed them to Idaho. After a visit to the Treasure Valley, they knew Meridian would be the best fit for them based on their values, political ideologies, the cleanliness, and safety.
Their problem - Their biggest challenge was leaving what they knew behind and taking a giant leap of faith into the unknown! They had a home to sell and needed to find their new home in one of the most competitive and fast-paced markets in the country.
Meeting Realtor John West - They first met John West through Dave Ramsey's ELP (Endorsed Local Provider) network and after speaking with a few different ELPs, they decided that he was the right fit for them. John asked great questions and listened to their feedback. They discussed the goals, timeline, and concerns that the Wohlers had with their move and could tell that John truly cared and was not just trying to sell them a house.
A plan that worked - Originally planning on buying a newly-constructed home, the Wohlers discovered that the building process would take much longer than they planned, so they changed their focus and had John seek out an existing home that would meet their wants and needs better. They had specific neighborhoods that were top of their list so John crafted daily listing alerts that matched their criteria and jumped on any new listings that could be a potential match. When the right home did appear on the market, they were prepared and ready to make their move. John was able to get their offer accepted having them officially in contract on a home!
Getting the job done - During the buying process, the Wohlers lived out of state. John stayed on top of all the details and helped them navigate the home inspection and contract-to-close process. He provided constant communication and worked hard to negotiate on their behalf and ensured they were on track for their closing. When the closing date finally arrived, they were able to close on time and without any issues.
Advice from the Wohlers - If you are considering buying or selling a home, which will more than likely be one of the biggest financial transactions in your lifetime, do your due diligence when selecting a Realtor and trust your gut instinct. If your agent seems like they are just trying to make a sale then that's a huge red flag. The agent you choose will play a vital role in your purchase being a success or a process you never want to repeat.
