Details Count

I was recently reminded in my last closing that the details go a long way. I was representing the buyer and was pleasantly surprised not only by the generosity of the seller but also by the professionalism of the listing agent. The seller went above and beyond preparing the home for the walkthrough. The house was immaculate and she even went as far as attaching fresh orchids to the trees at the entrance and throughout the yard. This was clearly a special home where she had made many happy memories and was pleased with the family that would soon make their own memories in the house.

The listing agent was also very organized. She had separated each key in labeled zip-lock bags and provided a folder with all of the important contact information for companies that service the house. This is something that all of the agents at LIR do along with many other rituals and recommendations to make the transaction go as smoothly as possible. I have unfortunately been involved in a few closings where I have represented the buyer and the walkthrough is mortifying – ie furniture remaining, deep holes in the wall, wires poking out of everywhere. It is a pleasant experience for everyone when we work with responsible and professional parties all around. I am proud to work for a company that sets itself apart by providing boutique and white-glove service for our clients.
