SOLD – 6827 Winding Bend Drive, McCordsville

6827 Winding Bend DrB.J. is Jennifer’s favorite car guy.  He helps her find the best deals on the best cars in his role as a sales rep for the Tom Wood Group.  When it came time for he and his wife Kalyn to buy a home, their roles reversed and Jennifer’s accepted the challenge to find them a house that was close for both their commutes, in excellent condition, and offered the potential to be a showplace!  The right house was available in McCordsville, but two other offers were received at the time the Knapke’s submitted their offer!  The irony was frustrating, as the house had been on the market for 1000+ days before their interest materialized.  It is never fun for Jennifer to be in a multiple offer situation, but she helped them write a strong offer to beat out the competition and secure the house.  It worked!  And despite a few hiccups in the inspection, the Knapke’s got to take possession of their dream house in short order!

SOLD – 6815 Woodhaven Place, Zionsville

6815 Woodhaven PlTom and Connie were moving to Tennessee!  Grandbabies were calling, and there simply was no reason to remain in Zionsville.  They wanted to be a Story of Sold, so they called Jennifer to help them sell their lovely, lovely home in the Enclave.  The actual sale of the house was comical, but successful.  Jennifer guided her anxious sellers through about 8 rounds of counters from a very challenging buyer, but it eventually pended and headed to inspections.  That’s where it got tricky.  The inspector picked apart the well-maintained, 9-year-old house, which resulted in a fairly inflammatory list of repair requests that could have been the death of that transaction.  Jennifer helped Tom and Connie remain calm, called on the expertise of her trusted contractors and got through it, finding a fair compromise between buyer and seller.  The transaction was air tight, and it DID close – on time, on good terms, and on a perfect schedule for Tom and Connie to move right into their brand new house in Tennessee.  Over the years, Jennifer has learned to STAY CALM, work through it, and never let them see you sweat!

What Polar Vortex?? I hadn’t noticed!

house in snowPeople keep asking me, “How’s this weather affecting the real estate market?”  I suppose you’ll get different answers depending on who you ask, but I’ve actually sold three houses in the past week!  Our office had a stellar January, surpassing our sales volume from 2013, despite the arctic blast (if you’ll remember, last January was unseasonably warm!).  I suspect this is because so many would-be buyers and sellers are trapped at home, shopping and researching online.  And while I may be snowed-in from time to time, I’m on the phone, banging out emails and doing my job.  Carpenter helps me post my listings EVERYWHERE, so they are getting maximum attention right now.  We post on dozens and dozens of international websites.  Our homes are in print, on tv, in your mailbox, and, yes, if you can get to the house, there is always a flyer box out front with lots of juicy little details on the beauty before your eyes.  Buyers are finding our listings, and buying them.  So it looks like this is going to be a smashing year.  If we can sell this much in this weather at this time of year, well…bring on the spring!  We’ll need more inventory by then, for sure.  Who’s thinking about a move this year?
