Home is a place where you build memories, enjoy family and find out what truly matters. It’s a place of comfort and a place of safety where you always feel warm and accepted.
The search for our first family home started much like many others. My wife Chelsea and I had never owned a home or even really considered it, but with a 2 year old son and dreams of a larger family we both agreed it was time to lay some roots. Our search began with us trying hard to agree on a style, price point and area of the city that we both liked. After much discussion we settled on the idea of an experienced home in a developed neighborhood that we could make our own. We began looking through the many listings on MLS & writing down property numbers as we drove past the many independent listings. As we continued our slow search we soon realized how much benefit we would see from a little assistance from the professionals, we found homes less accessible for viewing independently and as we all have learned in the past, photos don’t always reflect the actual product.
Now for the hard work, as I mentioned my wife and I were new to the process, how do you find a real estate agent who is right for you? In this case word of mouth proved to be the perfect resource for us. Cindy Gannon of The Gannon Team and Remax Real Estate were recommended to us through a colleague of mine. This proved to be the best decision we made in the purchase of our first home. I quickly found out that a few words I heard in the past rang true, most buyers don’t know what they are looking for. Now don’t let yourself get confused, we all think we know exactly what we want, but once you encounter a real estate agent who is passionate in their craft and genuinely interested in finding you the home of your dreams you quickly find out that you didn’t truly have all the information to make an informed decision.
Cindy is extremely relatable and listens intently as you describe the wants, needs and price point of your dream home and has a knack for picking out just the right properties. She is professional in every way, we were so impressed that Cindy always offered us, as the potential buyer, the first steps into the home once the door was unlocked. This really gave us the opportunity to feel that first impression of our new potential home. She offered an ear for an inexperienced buyer and was a reliable sounding board for us as questions arose. This proved to be very beneficial to us as we looked through properties because Cindy was able to point out many potential things for us to consider. As my wife and I were guided through the fun and exciting process of searching for a home, we soon realized that what we thought we wanted wasn’t what we wanted at all. We shifted our search and began looking at newer properties in newly developed neighborhoods. One day we met Cindy to look at a newly built townhome, we were very excited after viewing, but couldn’t quite get over the fact that there wasn’t a backyard. This is when Cindy really turned things around for us, she knew just the property for us. Right up the road in a new community called Chappelle Gardens, Cindy showed us a duplex that was just about to be built. She read our body language and the look of “home” on our faces as we viewed the showhome. It was never more clear that we had found our dream home.
We never would have even considered the home that was the best fit for our family if not for the expertise of Cindy Gannon. In all aspects of realty, new build or experienced home, Cindy Gannon is the right choice to guide you through the process and help you find the home of your dreams.
The Extra Mile
In a world with so many choices, it’s the small touches, comforts and ease of process that keep people coming back. Cindy was a friend in real estate when we needed her most. She is congenial and truly has the best interest of the buyer at heart. Our experience didn’t simply end with the closing of the sale, Cindy was so excited for us as clients that she even checked in a few weeks after we took position to see how we were settling in and to offer a few housewarming tokens to help us customize our home. Our family will be forever grateful to Cindy and the Gannon Team for helping us get settled and building great family memories that will last a lifetime.
