After chatting about houses and looking on the Internet, we left a voice mail for Lizette. Since June, Daniel had been sending me her weekly e-mail newsletters. I felt like I had gotten to know her through these e-mails. We went on-line to our bank to be pre-certified for our mortgage. We now just needed to find a house.
Lizette called back and we decided to meet to look at two houses in Richmond. While they were not right, they were a good place to start. Later, we looked at a few more houses while Daniel was at work. We found it! It was so cute and just right.
We wanted to make an offer and Lizette walked us through the process. We crossed our fingers, waited… then the offer was accepted!
Next were calls to the bank, home insurance, inspections, a final walk-through, packing and scheduling movers. Through it all, there was Lizette. She stayed in touch with the seller, coordinated the inspections, monitored the completion of the repair list, provided us a list of contacts and ensured the closing went smoothly.
And the next thing we knew, we were closing on the house. The smooth, painless process would not have been possible without Lizette. She made our first time purchasing a house, easy. While we hope to stay here for a while, there is no doubt in our mind that when it comes time to sell our house, we will be contacting Lizette. She stayed on top of the whole process while also ensuring all of the details were completed.
In the mean time, several things have happened: we bought our first house (and LOVE it) and I made my first friend in KY.
