Frankly, I don’t even know where to begin. Simply put- Derek & Natalie knocked it out of the park as far as we are concerned.
Any Realtor can show you property, present an offer and, to differing degrees, negotiate on your behalf. Our time with Derek & Natalie, although fairly short and efficient, was complicated. First, the market is tight in the neighborhoods that appealed to us. Second, we made an offer, had it accepted, and went to contract, all within 24 hours…..THEN the complications (self-inflicted!) started. We had buyers’ remorse. Derek talked us off the ledge, spoke with the listing agent on our behalf, and had them return our contract deposit. FURTHER, he negotiated on our preferred choice (which was previously under contract with someone else) for substantially less $ than we would have had to pay a week prior.
What’s also important to note is that Derek knew each and every listing agent for the properties that we toured. There is no doubt that these relationships, and the quality of his reputation, allowed for productive, fair and efficient negotiations at each step along the way.
It is perhaps worth noting that we have completed more than 20 residential sales and purchases in California and elsewhere. We have seen the value that a great broker brings to the table—and Derek and Natalie rose to this challenge. We ABSOLUTELY recommend them.
