As a first time home buyer I admit that I was nervous and hesitant to tackle the daunting task of purchasing my first house. After finding a few homes that was interested in, I scheduled a meeting with a buying agent to assist me. As I prepared for the initial meeting I had my guard up, much like I would for the purist of buying a new car and the nonsense that comes with it. I entered Berkshire Hathaway’s local office and there was Rachel Berlin. Only after a few short moments chatting with her, my mind was at ease, the stress levels were at minimum, and I was ready for the journey. Rachel took me as not only as a client, but also a teammate, through this process. I remember bombarding her with questions / requests and I was astounded at the quick and comprehensive responses that I received. Rachel by no means made me feel under pressure at any time. She was there to assist on what was best for me and my situation. She offered advice in an easy to follow step-by-step format to get started.
Once I was ready to look at houses, Rachel was on point. We looked at a mixture of homes that both of us had found within the requirements agreed upon. She was fully prepared, offering insightful information and guidance on each and every one. Once an offer was made / accepted she provided me a detailed list that included everyone’s action items and respected due dates. This allowed me to keep constant track of where we were at in the process and mitigated the risk of any confusion as there are many players involved in the process. I highly recommend Rachel as a buying agent. Her knowledge, direction, and ability to execute without error is superb.
