Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Fort Lauderdale Beach

We agreed to an answer last Wednesday at 2pm...just executed the contract today...

Well, sometimes you just have to go with the flow, I guess...(I love those.....lol).

I wrote an offer last Tuesday.  The time for acceptance was Wednesday at 2 pm.  We heard back a counter within the time frame, countered back, they countered, we countered, we received new information, they countered, we countered, more info, and we finally accepted...a week later - VERBALLY!!! I don't necessarily normally do verbal counters, however, I trusted the other agent on the seller's side. We worked this deal out PERFECTLY, WHY, because, we both trusted each other and were both professionals. We do not work for the same brokerage, however, from day 1, we knew we were trust worthy and we worked a very fair deal.

B/c this deal is not finalized, however, we do have an executed contract, I cannot give the kudo's to the wonderful seller's agent that I had the pleasure of working with - YET!

This doesn't happen often, but I sure would love to work with the seller's agent again.  What a wonderful deal, and some wonderful agents on the other end.  Very understanding as am I.

How often does a plan come together and there are two nice agents working a fair deal for the buyer and the seller?

I just love it when a deal comes together!

It's great when you are working with a pro... however, until all is signed, one cannot be sure all is in place.

i have to agree! Nothing can replace the satisfaction of knowing that you've not only helped sold (or bought) a house, but had gained friendship (and possibly partnership) in the process!

Congratulations to you! KUDOS!

Joan,

It took a week.  I told them from the get go that it would sell at $265,000. They still got a deal b/c the two comps averaged out to $270K, so they got a bargain.  Esp. since the condo association dues of over $6K were paid up front and not due until July, and another $1K for upgrades to their impact proof windows...

James,

It was a pleasure to work with the other agent and her husband/partner in this deal.  I couldn't have asked for a nicer couple to work with.  It is wonderful!

Karen, Congratulations on a LONG negotiation coming together for you.  I'm with you...I'd much rather work with another great agent and know in my heart that I can trust them.  Congrats girl!

Elizabeth,

I'm trilled.  These other agents are a godsend!  You couldn't ask for nicer seller's agents to work with.  After this is said and done.  I will write a nice post about them.

Hi Karen ----- it's always good when there is a good working relationship between the agents.   As Joan in comment 1 stated --- I wish you the best of luck in the transaction but until the signatures are all in place there isn't a deal....hopefully you can get over this hurdle and onto closing.

Patricia,

Thank you, however, until the HUD1's are signed and my check clears, I'm a little superstitious to "celebrate"...yet!  :-)
