Luis was essential to our success in this insane market for home buyers. We heard the horror stories of dozens of bids, prices going $100k and more above asking price, buyers being rejected repeatedly bid after bid. We prepared to settle in for the long haul. Preparing for our first time out with Luis, we had not seen any homes online that really met our criteria, but we thought it would be a good opportunity to get Luis up to speed on our thinking. At the last minute, we saw a listing for a house that seemed to be perfect and Luis was able to line it up. It was indeed perfect. Given the intensity of the market, our first question to Luis: did he think we would have a competitive offer. It was a good offer, but not a spectacular one. Luis had already spoken with the seller's agent and had a strategy on the approach. The next day, we put in the offer and the day after that they accepted. After all the stories we heard, we were shocked. We fell in love with the first house on our first outing and our first offer was accepted. We give full credit to Luis for our fantastic success in this crazy market. Not only that, he was there every day until we closed to answer questions, give advice and sometimes simply provide moral support when things were tense. As a side note, we later found out that the sellers had subsequently received a couple of fallback offers significantly higher than ours. As we have watched prices continue to rise in the area, we are immensely grateful to Luis for his deft handling of our purchase. We cannot recommend him highly enough.
