Earlier this month, I represented buyer clients from out of state, in their search for a historic waterfront home that met their needs as a private home they could eventually retire to, while using it as a Vacation Rental By Owner in the meantime. It was my pleasure and honor to assist them in listening to their needs, wants and previewing properties on their behalf. The opportunity to not only meet the needs of my clients but also make new friends is one of the very best parts of my profession. The listing agent also was a joy to work with and offered great cooperation. I am hoping we will have another one coming down the road in the near future.
Last Year I worked with a wonderful couple who purchased this home in Marshall, Virginia. My clients have become lifelong friends – which is a treasure.
We searched the state of Virginia for two years using many brokers and the internet, looking for our perfect retirement home. We saw many homes in that period, but none met enough of our criterion. We met Karin from one of our internet finds and though the home we saw did not fit us perfectly she asked the right questions about why that was, and asked if she might be able to call us should she come across property more in keeping with our needs; character, tall ceilings, property and water. Little did we know that “should she come across” meant she would scour the state for us for many months, showing us many promising properties and finally finding exactly what we had been looking for to make Virginia our home state. We were very fortunate to find someone as diligent as Karin, never once taking us to a property she had not previewed before, and helping us with her personal resources as well as doing substantial investigations to find other local ones to help us through the critical vetting period so essential in a property of this kind. We highly recommend Karin for anyone looking for a unique Virginia property.
