Andy originally started helping me look for the perfect first home 2 years ago, but at the time, I wasn't making enough to buy what I had in mind. I decided to keep renting until I could afford what I was envisioning.
This past summer, we started looking again, and I bought an amazing house in October. I was pretty particular about what I wanted, and Andy was sensitive to my wants and needs. I work full-time, so Andy would go preview houses while I was working. He knew what I was looking for, so he was able to rule out a lot of houses that would have been a waste of time to visit myself.
I was using Zillow to find houses, but the house I fell in love with wasn't on Zillow. That's why it's important to have a great real estate agent who has an eye for your style, location, and price range.
