“This spring I had the absolute joy of working with Karen Cheong and Chris Sprague in an extremely complex and difficult real estate transaction.
From our first meeting, Karen and Chris thoroughly impressed me, not only with their marketing and legal knowledge, but with their ability to provide a vast network of support people to aid in the preparation of the unit for sale.
They were both extremely generous with their time, suggestions, and talents to do whatever was necessary to make this process the least stressful: from letting in work people, to being there in my absence for inspections, picking up materials, keeping all of us to our demanding time schedule and arranging for the staging of the unit.
This was an incredibly complex transaction involving a three unit condo conversion in the making, and the coincidence of six loans (three first loans and three second loans) all needing to close on the same day – with owners out of the US during the process!
The transaction went through without a hitch, though there were several last-minute glitches I was never even aware of until the escrow closed in my absence.
We were concerned about the market timing of the unit since the market was in a flukey period and were in contact on a daily basis from the first day of signing the contract to the closing day. Despite the sketchy market, Karen and Chris aggressively marketed the property through all media and after the very first Open House produced seven offers for the condo – all significantly above the asking price.
I equate this outcome with their skill in marketing, ability to see potential in a unit, and their absolute and total commitment to the client – all carried out with impeccable honesty and integrity.
In the past six years, I have been involved in seven real estate transactions and have never experienced the level of diligence, expertise and commitment that Karen and Chris provided for this transaction. They are, without a doubt, not only the most effective professional realtors, but wonderful people …..the best!”
