I recommend Linda Vorrath as a highly skilled real estate professional. She not only sold our son his first home a couple of years ago that was a foreclosure with many problems that she helped him through but also helped this past year in 2013 to list our home as a "Short Sale." She put us in touch with a very good Short Sale lawyer who kept us apprised of what was going on. She listed our home September 3, 2013 and by September 10, 2013 we had chosen the Buyer out of five different bids. Now came the Bank dealings which the lawyer and our realtor, Linda, kept us informed.
Linda kept papers moving that needed to be signed by us and delivered to the lawyer for our Bank. During all of this my husband, who was terminal, passed away in November 2013 but Linda and our lawyer made sure all of the papers were signed by us before his passing except the closing papers. Now I just needed to wait for the Bank to give the final approval/acceptance for closing. Did I mention Linda was present for all inspections, appraisals and was at both closings. They allowed me my own private closing and then the Buyer closed on a different day. I am happy to say the Short Sale was completed by January 31, 2014. Do you believe it? A Short Sale done in less than 5 months. I was thinking this could take 6 months to 9 months.
I couldn't have done it without Linda and her expertise. She can recommend a lawyer as she did in our case for a Short Sale or she can give you a list of handymen, lawn mowing services, painters, etc.after you move in to your new home. She has a wealth of information which she is always willing to share with you. Linda Vorrath is "Our Realtor for Life" but also a very good friend of our family.
Thank you, Linda!
