It was a big decision and a scary one as well. Before I decided to put my house on the market I sat down with Shawn Skinner, a broker at RE/MAX Equity Group. His knowledge and confidence in the housing market put my worries to ease. Shawn "held" my hand throughout the process. He first met with me and inquired about my goals, such as time frame and sale price expectations. After he walked through my house, Shawn gave me great feed back on what I needed to do to make my house market-ready. He offered many cost-saving recommendations as well. When my house was ready, Shawn formulated the marketing plan for my house including: scheduling a open house for realtors, scheduling professional photograhs to be taken, creating a tri-fold color brochure, and producing a website featuring a virtual tour of my home. The same day the website went "live", I received two phone calls requesting a showing the following day (Saturday). By Saturday afternoon I had an offer. The open house was on that Sunday. Shawn recommended that I wait until after the open house before considering the offer. Alas, I had another offer after the open house and another strong inquiry. I sold my house within 24 hours, and I absolutely could not have done it without Shawn and his knowledge and patience. He was attentive to my questions and concerns throughout the entire process. He made sure I understood, and most importantly agreed with, all the terms and conditions that go along with selling a house. He was reassuring and honest throughout the entire process. I give him many kudos and much appreciation! I would hands-down refer Shawn to anybody who is thinking about selling or buying a home. Thanks so much!
He showed us dozens of homes over a couple months' time. Without fail, Shawn was always prompt, well versed in whatever repairs might be needed on a given home, great with advice about how much a home was actually worth, etc. As a first time homebuyer, I didn't know what to expect from a realtor but he exceeded all possible expectations. I came to trust his judgment because he earned my trust. He never tried to rush me into anything. In fact, he often suggested that I think about this or that angle before making a decision. I ended up with a lovely home at a great price. If you're in the market to purchase a home, do yourself a favor: call Shawn Skinner.
Shawn is very knowledgeable, well organized, and prompt. He went above and beyond in helping us find our dream home and worked tirelessly to make sure the deal went through as scheduled. He was very patient in answering any and all questions we had during the process. Most of all, he was very approachable, professional and a strong advocate on our behalf when necessary. Shawn made the stressfull process of buying a home a pleasant one. We love our new home and highly recommend Shawn Skinner as a broker!!!
His calm and personable manner, along with his invaluable guidance and his constant focus on my goals, made my home purchase a positive experience. Shawn smoothly coordinated all aspects of the buying process, always kept me informed immediately of houses coming on the market, and responded to my questions and requests within minutes. He promptly handled every detail in the final stages of the purchase, and his outstanding negotiating skills with the seller brought results which exceeded my expectations. I would heartily recommend Shawn to anyone.
