If at all possible, don’t attempt
to sell one house while buying its replacement. That’s a recipe for
insanity and many potential problems. That’s what we did when we moved
from Los Angeles to Santa Maria. We’d been shopping the listings on
line for months and Cliff contacted us, without being pushy, to inquire
when we might be ready to actively begin shopping for a home. He kept
in touch for many weeks, never pushing, patiently answering any and all
questions as they arose.
When the time came to physically
shop the available properties, Cliff made himself available when
requested and showed us every possible home to fit our needs and
desires. He was with us through the entire process, even when the
escrow company handling the sale of our previous home experienced
severe breakdowns and the one handling our local purchase experienced
similar issues, he was there to make sure things were taken care of and
requests for and repairs to the home were accomplished.
Cliff was always positive, patient, accommodating every request cheerfully, handling our purchase from start to finish.
