Our Knight in Shining Armor
My fiance signed up to receive e-mails with houses in our price range in our area on a local real estate website. Here and there he saw things he liked and would e-mail them off to our realtor. Then our knight in shining armor came to our rescue. She was a realtor working for the company that was e-mailing my fiance. She asked him if what he was getting were things he was interested in or if she should tweek things as all and told him to let her know if she could help in any way. Well, we immediatly jumped and said "yes, please!" Our first meeting with her was amazing. She suggested we meet on Saturday morning at a local coffee place for drinks and a chat about what we wanted. From there she brought us, in her own car, to see some places we had sent her. Before with the old realtor we had always met her places and she had never met with us to see what our thoughts and needs were. This new way of thinking was a breath of fresh air. It was also a breath of fresh air that first day when her gps sent us a bit off track and she didn't seem fazed at all, she was more concerned with us and our finding a home than anything else. Though in hindsight part of this was also the fact that her husband and son were away for the summer, and so she had no one to worry about but herself. We were so glad we finally found someone we enjoyed working with and really worked for us.
