High end sales are sluggish right now, right? Maybe, if you pay attention to the statistics. But Jennifer dug into the marketing of 11875 E 500S in Zionsville and found the one ready, willing and able buyer that this unique property needed (in just 37 days, by the way). The whole deal was tough from day 1. The negotiations were challenging. The inspection was over-the-top, and the subsequent irrational expectations from the buyer were deal-killing. On a Tuesday night, the deal was dead. And on Wednesday morning, Jennifer resuscitated it, got both parties to a “meeting of the minds.” And by Friday night, it was closed. The sellers packed up and moved to Florida, the buyers dove into their new pool right away. Sometimes, when the deals get tough, it helps to have an agent who knows when to be tough and how to get over hurdles.
Deb and Jeff had been in an apartment for too long. They were newlyweds, and life had finally fallen into place for their first home purchase together. They were not novices to the buying process, but it had a been a while for each of them, and many things in the industry had changed since their last purchases. They had a lot of questions and had been given bad information from too many friends. Jennifer straightened all of that out and connected them with an excellent loan officer who worked out a great loan for them, so that Deb and Jeff were ready when they found their perfect house. Custom shelving is going up in their new library now, and Jeff is on a wild planting spree in the back yard. Sounds like apartment living had cramped their style!

One evening while they were together looking at homes, Juan pointed to 703 W Baronne and said to Jennifer: “That could be my forever house, but it’s too expensive.” Jennifer pulled over, called in a showing request and took Juan and Melinda inside to see this magical, historic home. They loved it! As it turned out, the current owner was financially strained, her bank was in control, and all bets were off as to how low the bank would go to facilitate a sale rather than own it. And when Juan and Melinda’s offer was accepted, they were elated! And Jennifer was once-again reminded that it never hurts to ask.
Spring had to be different for the Tielkers! They’d moved to Zionsville nearly a year earlier, and their house in Washington Township had languished all winter under the efforts of a broker who had not got the job done. And then a friend suggested they call Jennifer, who tromped around in the February snow installing signs, taking pictures from all angles, and helping the Tielkers stage and prep their house more effectively. And it worked. The house closed in May, and the Tielkers no longer need to mow a house in which they do not live.
