SOLD – 11489 Governors Lane, Fishers

11489 Governors LaneSeveral years ago, Jared & Emily called Jennifer to inquire about a short sale listing she had in Pike Township. That was a big, once-beautiful house with a pool, in a terrible state of disrepair; and while it didn’t work for Jared & Emily, the couple decided Jennifer should work for them, so the search commenced. They were “selective” buyers, who weren’t yet decided on what they wanted…or where they wanted it…so this was a challenge!  They visited homes on the west side on Indy, in Carmel and Zionsville and Westfield.  But, while on the hunt, Jared got a new job, Emily got pregnant, and it became clear that the couple might need to house a parent or two in the near future.  ‘Twas kind of a roller-coaster for a house hunt, actually!  Would you believe that THE PERFECT HOME for these two materialized in Fishers, sitting atop a slight hill, on a bold corner lot?!  It was a fabulous, custom home that had originally been built by adult-children to co-habitate with their elderly parents.  The house was essentially a duplex, but you’d never know it from the street. It was built as two, fully-functioning residences in one.  It was an amazing find. Beautiful and totally unique. They bought it nearly immediately! Jennifer can rarely say the ride to the closing table is easy anymore, and this one had its own unique challenges, but it closed. And Jared and Emily just sent Jennifer a postcard of their beautiful new baby shortly afterwards.  When/if they ever need to move a parent in with them, they are ready!

SOLD – 13679 Mallorn Circle, Fishers

13679 Mallorn CircleD and M needed to sell their home in Fishers.  Their financial situation had changed, due to the recession, and they were upside down on their mortgage after the developer of their neighborhood filed bankruptcy and abandoned the yet-unfinished neighborhood.  This sale would take a special agent with a lot of patience and a keen knowledge of the short sale process.  Jennifer was the right fit, and was able to accomplish what most would have declined.  A sale was procured, the bank approval of the short sale was secured, and the transaction moved toward a closing.  Jennifer helped the family find an excellent rental, so they could start the new job without the burden of an oppressive mortgage, and they didn’t even have to leave the school system they loved!

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 – 13851 Naples Court, Fishers

NaplesKaren 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.

SOLD!! 11064 Schoolhouse Road, Fishers

SchoolhouseWendi’d had a run of bad luck and needed to relocate for work.  What could she do with the house in Fishers?  The neighborhood had been hit hard during the
recession, and there was no way to sell it high enough to pay off two mortgages.
One brisk October morning, Jennifer laid out Wendi’s options:  1)
find the cash to pay off the mortgage balance, 2) let it go to foreclosure, or
3) compromise and apply for a short sale with both mortgage lenders.
Jennifer knew it wouldn’t be easy when she chose the latter, but they
dove into it. By January, the ladies were looking at three offers.
The highest was chosen and the ride began. The first lender
approved the offer in short order, but the second was not as cooperative.
Jennifer sparred with that lender while the buyers hung in there for
EIGHT months! The bank’s delay tactics frustrated everyone to the point
that the buyers chose to move on in August. So, Jennifer put it back on the
market – still fighting with the second lender – and found a couple more
offers!  The highest was submitted in September.  BOTH loans now had
to be re-approved because the first approval had expired.  It was
maddening!  At times, there was a desire by all to just give up. but
patience prevailed, the approvals moved more quickly in the second round, and
they closed in late October – 366 days after the process began.  Jennifer
was reminded that persistence pays off, even after patience runs out, and that
there is a solution to hardship.  It’s not always easy, but it’s always
the lesser of three evils.
