JUST SOLD! 3812 Limelight Lane, Whitestown

3812 LimelightDustin and Stephanie had been trying to sell their house with a friend for months. The request for price reductions just kept coming, and they were frustrated by the lack of activity and advertising that was being done on their behalf. They felt effort should be exhausted before they were asked to reduce their price again, and Jennifer agreed when she was called in to take over the job.  She made a few recommendations on staging kept the list price where it was, and rolled Carpenter’s exclusive Home Marketing System on their behalf. The comprehensive marketing plan starts with stellar photography and online representation and rolls out to every form of print, web & video advertising available in the local market. FIVE DAYS LATER, they had an offer in hand that closed the first week of December. Proof again that it takes the right price, the right staging and the right marketing to sell a house… if any leg on that stool is missing, the results will be dismal.  When you want to SELL your house, call Jennifer. She’ll give you the right guidance and the right marketing and help you price your house to capture the most equity; and she will get it DONE.

JUST SOLD! 9044 Dewberry Court, Indianapolis

9044 DewberryDarryl and Becky were on the house hunt when they called Jennifer about one of her listings in Pike Township.  She met them there, they hit it off, though that particular house wasn’t quite the right fit.  For a little over a year, the three viewed properties from time to time that just didn’t end up fitting their needs.  Nothing really rang their bells in all that time, until they walked into 9044 Dewberry and knew it was “THE ONE.”  A little vision for fresh paint and some swift negotiations is all it took for Darryl and Becky to secure their dream home.  The inspections went smoothly, the appraisal sailed through, and the lender Jennifer had connected them with was ready a week early.  It was a dream transaction for all parties involved!  Today, the new paint is really improving the feel of that home, Darryl and Becky are moving in and spreading out in a nice, big home in the perfect location.  Twas the Friday before Christmas when they closed, and all three knew their chance encounter was a gift that would made the New Year sparkle!

SOLD! 7968 Eagle Valley Pass, Indianapolis

7968 Eagle Valley PassBruce had sold his home with Jennifer a few years prior. After a “breather” from home ownership while he launched a new career, the thrill of living with his sister had worn off. He’d been out of the house hunt for over 15 years, and a lot had changed!  Jennifer told him about an incredible loan offered by National Bank of Indianapolis, and with the approval letter in hand, they were on the hunt for the perfect house. Bruce had a list of possibilities that was near endless, but it was the last one they walked into that captured his heart. And, what a deal it was!  A free-standing condo, tucked against a tree line, in a conveniently-located neighborhood with a pool and tennis courts.  He HAD to have it!  The place had been on the market for a while, Jennifer was feeling confident that she could snag him the deal of the century.  They wrote the offer right there on the living room floor, and it was submitted before the sun set.  And it was ACCEPTED by noon the next day.  You just never really know what a seller can or will do, and it never hurts to push the envelope as long as expectations are realistic from the get-go.  Sometimes Jennifer gets the joy of saying “I can’t believe they accepted your offer!”  Bruce moved in a couple of months ago, and has been hurriedly making it his own, which Jennifer knows from past experience, will be AMAZING!

SOLD! 1544 Cherrywood Ct, Westfield

1544 Cherrywood CtDanyelle & Brian were getting married in October!  They’d been working hard to get their credit established and hoped that their time had come to buy their first home, but they didn’t know where to start until their lender referred them to Jennifer.  What a great idea that was!  Jennifer came up with a list of 10 really good possibilities within their budget, in an area close to their jobs and scheduled a morning out with them.  The last one they saw was THE one, and the negotiations commenced almost immediately.  A very good deal was struck that enabled Dany and Brian to buy a home with as little cash out of pocket as possible, and the couple got to close on the purchase of their first home just a few days before they flew out to Las Vegas for the big day.  When they got back to Indiana, wedding gifts were piled in the family room, waiting to be opened and enjoyed.  Jennifer loves the hunt with all her clients, but that joy is compounded when her clients trust her to help them start their life together on the right foot.

SOLD! 4614 Summersong Road, Zionsville

Summersong RoadJack and Marnie were spending more and more time at their lake house in Michigan.  Their home in Zionsville was easy-enough to maintain, but an unnecessary anchor and expense, so they called Jennifer to get it sold.  What a delight their beautiful home in Ravinia was!  The marketing rolled out strategically, the house was priced appropriately, and within 4 days the first offer was received.  It wasn’t a bad offer, not quite acceptable, but workable.  Before responding to that offer, Jennifer called some folks who’d also seen the house that week and let them know that they needed to make their intentions known – and fast – if they were interested!  The very next morning, a second offer was received, and this one was ABOVE the list price.  Well, you can imagine how that turned out.  The appraisal and the inspections commenced, Jennifer had to do some fast work collecting bids for minor, unknown defects, but they were able to find a compromise on the repairs that suited all the parties.  It closed earlier this month.  While Jennifer is sad to see Jack and Marnie leave Zionsville, she is quite proud of her success on their behalf, and she knows that if they ever return, she’s earned their business in the future, and hopefully that of their local friends.

SOLD – 9764 Lakewood Drive, Zionsville

9764 Lakewood DriveRoger and Beth were just about finished raising their children.  It was time to downsize from their six bedrooms home to something a little more manageable and less costly.  One would think that a large, family home like that would be a rare commodity and a quick sale… but sometimes Jennifer gets surprised by the market and it took a bit longer than expected to find that one ready, willing and able buyer.  Eleven months, in fact.  Apparently, there aren’t many buyers out there who need a home this big!  But Jennifer did not give up!  And neither did Roger and Beth.  She kept up the advertising, hosted innumerable open houses, showed the house umpteen times, and chased every lead.  In the end, it worked, and an acceptable offer was received.  When the sale closed in the fall, Roger and Beth were elated.  The timing worked out pretty well for them, in the end, as the longer time on market allowed one of their children the opportunity to reside there until a job was secured on the west coast.  Jennifer was once again reminded that persistence pays off, though patience is is a trait she is still learning!

JUST SOLD – 4185 E Main St, Carmel

4185 E Main St, CarmelIn 2009, Malcom and Janet downsized from their palatial, contemporary home in Carmel for an easier lifestyle in a maintained community in Fishers.  But for three years, they’d tried in vain to sell the vacant property through various high-profile real estate agents.  Though Jennifer did not know them personally, when the listing expired yet again, she sent them a note and asked for an interview.  And when they did call, she knew their prospects for getting that house sold would improve.  The house was unique.  It would need a special buyer to love the 50’s styling, the indoor pool and the 7000+ square feet of living space it offered.  It would also need a buyer willing to take on the care and maintenance of 2+ acres.  But the condition was excellent, and the location superb.  Jennifer was certain she could get the job done, so she took it on, tweaked the price, rolled the advertising and started scheduling showings.  Three offers later, a deal was struck which ultimately closed just before Christmas.  With properties such as this, Jennifer always takes a different approach from that of her peers.  She lists it with the goal of selling it, and she works it…hard…until the job is done.  If you have a tough one, call Jennifer.  She’ll be the last agent you need.
