I have had the privilege of working with Sandy Broker as both a buyer and seller of property. Sandy has an excellent understanding of the tri-city market and listens to her clients about their needs. As an example, I was looking for an investment property in the tri-city area and I identified my general thoughts about the property that I wanted to invest in and how much I was willing to invest. Within a month Sandy contacted me and informed me that she had four or five properties to look at. She asked me if I was willing to think outside of the box and when she heard that I was she added another property to the list. When I looked at the properties I originally liked a piece of property that had unreasonable sellers. Sandy tried to work with the sellers but they couldn’t come to a decision about anything. After trying numerous times to work with the sellers Sandy recommended that we look at a different piece of property. She pointed out the views and the location and suggested that if I was looking for investment property this would be a parcel that a spec builder would soon be interested in. Sandy recommended, and arranged for, the building envelope and property boundaries to be marked and for someone to come out and clear a path to the building envelope. Within six weeks of listing the property I had an offer that was more than 50% above what I had paid for the property six months prior. Not a bad return on my investment!
In another instance I asked her to list a property that I wanted to sell quickly. I suggested a price and she believed that based on the location and market that I could increase my asking price by 20% and I would still get a quick offer. Sandy was right. I had a full cash offer within two days of listing the property.
I have listed numerous properties with Sandy and she always manages to identify something about the properties that I was unaware of. I purchased a piece of property about five years ago; the agent wasn’t sure where the property was and couldn’t tell me anything about the property. I couldn’t identify all of the property lines and I couldn’t figure out the dimensions of the property. I listed the property with two previous agents and they did almost nothing once they had the listing. When I listed the property with Sandy she started researching the history of the property and quickly found out that the reason that I couldn’t figure out the dimensions and boundaries was because the property had a shared driveway with the neighbor. The neighbor tried to claim the property was his through squatter’s rights but Sandy quickly set him straight. I would not have known about the shared driveway if it hadn’t been for Sandy’s determination to understand as much as she can about the properties that she lists or the properties that she researches for buyers.
And on top of her unparalleled professionalism she is very friendly and easy to talk to. I would recommend that anyone looking to list or buy property or a home give Sandy a call and talk to her. You will not be sorry, and if nothing else you will make a new friend.
