When we began looking for homes we did not have a real estate agent, not because we didn’t want one, we just had not looked into anyone at that time. We stumbled across Calvin because of a property he was selling that we were interested in. Although that property was pending with an offer, Calvin did not stop there. He called, introduced himself and offered to set up houses in the same area that we would be interested in viewing. At this point, we had yet to meet Calvin in person, however we knew from his professionalism on the phone, we were in good hands.
Calvin is extremely knowledgeable in the real estate department. Upon entering houses, he will first discuss the outside of the premise, pointing out areas such as the roof, eavesdrops, windows and driveway. He identifies any areas of concern right away but will also point out ways the seller has upgraded or improved the home. Calvin was able to “see” many different aspects of houses, that we as first time home buyers did not. For example, in one home, the freezer door was not able to fully open due to the wall and location of the fridge. There is no way we would've discovered that flaw within minutes but he did.
When we finally decided on the home, Calvin made the process feel exciting not stressful. He kept us in the loop the entire time through texts, emails and phone calls. This being a whole new process for us, we were nervous, buying a house is a huge purchase. Calvin eased all our fears and concerns and answered all our questions. We had a best and final price we were not willing to go over and we respected Calvin and his expertise when he said we can try but there is no guarantee. We appreciated the fact he was willing to try, and he was an excellent negotiator because in the end we got the house we wanted for the price we wanted to pay.
Calvin has been a great guy to work with. He’s punctual, professional and knowledgeable. Calvin is someone we would definitely use again whether we were selling or buying. We will be passing along his name to any of our friends or family interested in purchasing or selling their home.
