Home Owners & Buyers
The choice of a realtor typically is fraught with uncertainty and the feeling of doubt as to whether the professional chosen understands what truly is motivating you to buy or sell something you view as more than merely a piece of property. These transactions, at virtually any place on the economic spectrum, are far more personal and meaningful than the average business deal. I am writing this testimonial to provide the public with more detailed knowledge as to why Caroline Wagner and her team are the perfect choices as your realtor if you are buying or selling a home, as the main residence, vacation home, or rental property. My wife and I were fortunate to have found Caroline in our search for that special house we were looking to acquire for our new lifestyle in Colorado anticipating a move from New Jersey within the next 2-3 years. During the search, Caroline was wonderfully inquisitive in trying to learn who we were and what our lifestyles and life goals were so that she could present us with options that were calculated to meet our "asks" in a new home. Her communication skills are superb and her responsiveness throughout the process was well beyond any of the realtors we have used previously. Caroline's candid and detailed approach to our transaction saved us an enormous amount of time and provided us with the confidence to know we were making completely informed decisions. We learned in the process that Caroline's talent for understanding ethical negotiations is without peer. In this particular buy, the sellers were moving into a house directly across the road and would become our neighbors. It was important for us that we maintain a good relationship with them while ensuring that our economic interests were protected. This was when Caroline absolutely shined. Making a smooth transition into a close-knit, rural community, where neighbors depend and can depend on each other, was an important goal that Caroline helped attain with flying colors. When our personal situation changed several years later, and we were deciding whether to sell our now renovated mountain cabin, I turned to Caroline yet again to help us with our decision, timing, and marketing of our new home. Caroline's guidance and responsiveness were absolutely amazing. She has an intuition as to what buyers are seeking in any market. With her guidance and expertise, which included advising us in making tough decisions over final major renovations, determining our initial asking price, and more importantly, the timing of putting our cabin on the market, we became "the only game in town" resulting in our selling our cabin at nearly 25% over our asking price and at more than 46% over our purchase price less than 3 years earlier, which of course Caroline had helped us negotiate. Throughout the closing process in both our buy and our sell, Caroline was there with solid advice and ensured that each closing went off without a hitch. Colorado is a difficult real estate market and the ability to maximize the value of your resources is more important than ever. If you are buying a new home or selling your current one in Colorado, you should know that Caroline Wagner and her team would be the perfect choice as your realtor. It is my pleasure to be able to recommend Caroline, without reservation, as highly as any professional in any field with whom I have ever worked.
