We are beyond excited and so glad you could be a part of it and then continue being a part since we'll basically be neighbors! =)
I can't say I did it all by myself; it was definitely a team effort. Carmen & Sherri Hansen, and Ada Antoci at The Red Door Team embraced me from the moment I decided, why rent? Knowing my circumstances were going to take a little more effort, it was suggested a free home buyers class which qualified me for down payment assistance! At first, I fell into the trance that I could buy a fixer upper. It looks so easy on Pinterest and HGTV. Carmen never passed judgment, but did suggest she was afraid I was in store for a money pit. Exactly the reality check I needed! We refocused my search and I found the perfect home! This 1901 beauty lacks a bit of curb appeal, which put it right in my price range, but has modern upgrades, charming additions, and the bones in tact! I am able to move in right away, enjoying the finishes inside, and still add my personal touch and hard work to the outside to increase enjoyment and value. I just dug up a fantastic tile patio that had been buried by years of ivy and blackberry growth. What a treasure! Ada and Carmen stayed by my side even after the paperwork was signed, making sure I was comfortable and I had all that I needed, like the mailbox key! I am so pleased with the house I bought, and the support I was given. My mortgage is less than what I was paying in rent. I feel like yelling, "if I can do it anyone can!" but you can't do it alone. Its a team effort. I never had to worry about a thing and would recommend The Red Door Team to those both new to home buying, or not.
I was privileged to work for them with the Red Door Team and will continue to recommend their services whenever possible. They truly work with individual's specific needs and care deeply about reaching a mutually satisfying result for all parties involved. Compassion and professionalism truly define who they are and what they represent.
