Implementing an aggressive strategy to market the property, the C/K Team hosted several Open Houses at 180 Mar Len.  The buyers came to us as Open House attendees and the couple retiring to Florida from New York state fell in love with the modern updates, the ample space for houseguests, the open air pool, and the S Mel Beach location that the property offered. After thinking it over for a few days from initially viewing the home, the buyers contacted the team ready to roll.

Buyer’s agent Ashley Gardner took the couple from financing options to making an offer to under contract and finally to the finish line.   Ashley introduced them to Brian Spencer, Dale Sorensen Real Estate’s  in-house lender, who was able to facilitate their VA financing with ease. This transaction was truly a pleasure for all in this double-sided sale resulting in a friendship between buyer and seller, trusted, easy going clients on both sides of the transaction and the team working together as we do best to get the deal done. Another example of WHO YOU WORK WITH MATTERS.
