We worked with John Herreid for several months looking for a new house. John set us up with an automatic e-mail each time a house that met our specifications came on the market. In September, he sent us a listing for a house in Wallingford that was originally listed for $645,000 and was recently reduced to $579,900. With John´s direction and guidance, we negotiated $24,900 off the final asking price. While referring us to a number of helpful resources to find a mortgage and inspection services, he also negotiated a long settlement of 60 days because we had a house to sell.
John also listed our house and provided a market analysis that indicated it should sell somewhere between $350,000 and $360,000. Our house went on the market on October 4 for $374,900. After two weeks, we agreed to reduce the price to $359,900, which was John´s first recommendation. Within 28 days of the reduction, we had an agreement of sale for 97% of the final asking price, with a settlement date only 2 weeks after the purchase of our new house. This was at a time when the average days-on-market was 128 days and 40% of the houses listed were not getting sold. John´s quality marketing program and knowledge of the housing market made this possible.
In addition to the impressive technology that John used to buy and sell our houses, we were impressed with John´s quantitative analysis to support the decisions that he recommended we make during this challenging time. We respected his professionalism, timely response and friendly demeanor each and every time we dealt with him. We would certainly recommend him to anyone who is thinking of selling or buying a house.
