I called Heidi because I noticed that she was the listing agent of the most beautiful houses in my price range. Her office was kind of messy when I first met her in person. But besides that she was basically the perfect realtor.
1. Local Knowledge: She has been in real estate for a couple decades or so so she really could give us a lot of history and background.
2. Trustworthiness: during house shopping she was like a auntie to our baby. Also she recommended some contractors that turned out to be good.
3. Communication Skills: Its a little thing but I can't stand when realtors write the little blurb about the house and it is full of typos, and bad grammar. She could be a professional writer if she wanted to. Her blurbs are literally the best in town.
4. Responsiveness: Even during a death in her family she let us know what was going on and that she would be unavailable for a time.
We ended up buying a beautiful cottage-y ranch that we absolutely love. We recommend Heidi to anyone especially if you are moving here from out of town.
