Testimonial from another satisfied customer who just bought a new home
When we decided that we wanted to buy a condo near to our daughter's family, our choices were extremely limited. We were specifically hoping for a "short sale" or "foreclosure" unit in University Towers. Our daughter suggested that we call Adam Bashein, because (in her words), "He's the kind of agent who will really take care of you." How true that proved to be! Adam had endless patience with us. We had so many questions, which he answered clearly, thoroughly, and responded quickly to us, whether we were reaching out to him via email or phone.
"We had spotted a "short sale" unit on an internet listing. Adam immediately informed us that that unit was already under contract -- but from that moment on, he was on the lookout for something for us. Several days after our initial inquiry, Adam was back in touch with us: The condominium we were interested in was back on the market! He arranged his schedule so that we could see it as soon as possible, and then we gathered in his home office to fill out a contract. Unfortunately, at the same time someone else filled out a contract for more than the asking price, and thus they got the contract.
Adam started using his experience and detective skills, checking into units that he thought might be coming onto the market soon. However, before anything came of that, he again called us with exciting news: "Our" unit was back on the market! The people who had outbid us for the contract had not been able to secure financing.
Adam than helped to steer us through the minefield of rules, regulations, and necessities prior to settlement, helping us to understand the language of the settlement documents and to make changes where he or we thought it was necessary. There was great pressure on us, because the sellers wanted to settle before the end of November and we did not feel we could settle until we had had a chance to go through the condominium documents (as required by law). Adam was able to negotiate a delay of settlement into the first week of December, giving us time to receive the condominium documents and go over them.
In summary, we are extremely grateful to our daughter for having recommended that we call Adam. He is a delightful person to work with, who helped to turn what could have been a tense and miserable situation into a pleasurable experience -- and (most important of all!) made it possible for us to purchase our condominium."
