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.
“You can’t always get what you want…” is what Stephanie told Dustin when they were looking for a new home with Jennifer. He wanted lots of acreage. She wanted a great house in a country environment in a good school district, that wasn’t too far from Dustin’s office in Zionsville. He wanted a motocross track and somewhere to hunt. She wanted low maintenance, a big yard for the boys to play in, and an outbuilding to store their dirt bikes so she could finally park her car in the garage. In the end, what they found was an awesome, custom ranch on four acres in Thornton with a big barn and enough land for some motocross practice ramps. When Dustin later posted on Facebook a picture of the giant buck that stumbled through his new back yard, Jennifer felt the urge to hum…”but if you try sometimes, you might find, you get what you need.”
Karen called Jennifer to inquire about a property in Fishers that she had listed. It was, unfortunately, already sold, but the two got to talking. It turned out that Karen had been looking for a while. She and Ed were having a hard time finding something to buy, their lease was about to expire and they did not want to renew it. The agent they had previously been looking with had abandoned them and they were real estate orphans. They were not ignorant to the buying process, nor were their expectations out of line at all. It just seemed like whoever that prior agent was had not made them a priority, and now they were just overwhelmed and running out of time. In an hour, Jennifer had a short list in their email of properties she thought might be interesting. They picked 5 and scheduled a time to see them. It took a couple trips out to find “it,” but a few weeks later they were under contract on the MOST AMAZING house that was a perfect fit for the size, floor plan, condition and budget they needed. And it was located on a park with a big front porch where Ed and Karen will be able to watch their grandchildren play when the weather accommodates. One can actually imagine the rocking chairs on that porch now and the fun they will have. That was an exciting closing for Jennifer, because Ed and Karen were SO delighted with their find and she had grown to love them like her own grandparents.
