- Rating 5.0June 11, 2022Buying my first home in San Francisco by myself during the peak of the housing crisis was a daunting process where writing offers required preparation, fast turn arounds, aggressive timelines, and a home lending team that knew what they were doing.
Buying the condo of my dreams took me TWO years of open houses, over 15 written offers, and many stressful bidding wars. I was lucky to have Barbara and her team with me through it all. Despite taking a long time to find my home, she never complained and always treated me with great respect and patience! Barbara enabled me to put a competitive offer that had contingencies removed AND a 21 day closing period. The thought of removing contingencies is daunting, but Barbara had done her market research and understood my finances well enough to guide me in minimizing my risks. Additionally, my situation was a little abnormal because I had to source my closing cost funds from so many accounts. This meant that Barbara had to go the extra mile, jump on many calls, send many texts (even on the weekends) to help me provide the underwriter the right information. I cannot emphasize enough how difficult it is to close in 21 days, but Barbara and her team are truly the best in field and have such a professional, kind and respectful attitude! If you work with Barbara, you can rest assured you are working with the best home lending team in the Bay Area.Response from Barbara McDonoughJune 11, 2022Bryan, your review made us smile.
