 Recently, we received this email from past clients who we represented in the sale of their Northwest Indiana property this summer, subject to Bank approval of a short sale. We were referred to these clients via their attorney, after their listing expired from another brokerage. It was not short amount of time = It took over 1 year to sell and had an offer that expired with buyers not willing to wait and then another offer not accepted - buyer not understanding that a short sale is not a fire sale, even banks have a bottom line. Finally, the 3rd offer (above list price) closed! Here was the email from our sellers:  Things happen, medical conditions change and banks don’t always want to assist. We had to do a Short Sale. Jeff treated us as “real people” which was a welcome change. Jeff a...

 We received a call from a Portage Indiana home owner that had heard a recommendation from his neighbor (which happened to be our past client), that we sell homes fairly quickly. Next, we scheduled an appointment and met him at his property and went over the sold com-parables and listed his home with the disclaimer  and understanding that there are circumstances beyond our control (economy, financial markets, interest rates, weather, etc) that may impact the time on market. Implementing an aggressive marketing plan, the results were many showings  and an accepted offer within 20 days on the market! If we can be of service to you in selling your Northwest Indiana property here are a few of our past clients recommendations and reviews: Website Testimonials Past Client Endorsements on our ...
