Jake and Carrie had been living in a rental for long enough! They needed a yard for their dogs to play, and they wanted a place to call their own. They’d been stabilizing their credit and income for a few years, and they knew their time had come, so they walked into their bank for a loan and walked out with an approval letter and a phone number for Jennifer. Their tale is a bit of a novel, but ultimately Jennifer found them the PERFECT place…a great ranch, close to work, with a superb outbuilding that came with an air compressor (“pretty nifty,” Jake the auto-mechanic thought!) Their inspections went smoothly. Their appraisal came in strong. And their closing went off without a hitch. Now, Jake and Carrie and the dogs are settling in, nicely, and Jennifer is happy to hear of their progress on making their new house a home.
