I CAN ONLY SAY: THANK YOU RON FOR HELPING US
My wife and I worked with Ron off and on for about 2 years as we looked for our ideal home in Noe. When one finally came up (a rare foreclosure near 24th Street), Ron was able to get us in to look at the place that same day, and we submitted our bid that evening since we understood that time would be of the essence. With Ron’s help and guidance, and after only one small bump in price, our bid was accepted and we hurdled down the complex and complicated path of buying a foreclosed property on an accelerated timeline with limited disclosures. Since we had specified a very short contingency period before going firm, Ron was able to get all the necessary inspectors/consultants lined up and through the house within 2 days. They were all very thorough and professional and gave us the confidence to push ahead knowing we were not getting a lemon. Once we were in formal escrow, Ron deftly navigated the twists and turns of the contract process and more than once helped us stay in front of potential issues before they got far enough along to run the risk of derailing our dream purchase. His experience was indispensable for helping our bank get comfort with the asset they were financing and that all the necessary work had been done to check and verify the house was in good shape. In short, I’m not sure we would ever have succeeded without a guy as experienced and capable as Ron holding our hand all the way through. We closed in late November 2011 and have been renovating since then. I’m happy to say that Ron has been incredibly responsive as we have run across questions and concerns post-closing–unlike other agents, Ron did not disappear once the deal was closed and the checks cleared. If anything, Ron has gone out of his way to make sure our house becomes a home and that he does everything in his power to make our whole experience as enjoyable and painless as possible. As we look at how crazy the Noe market has become today (May 2012) versus when we closed in Nov 2011, I can only say: thank you Ron for helping us realize our dream of homeownership when you did! Were it not for your talent and capabilities, we may never have had the chance!
