My wife and I had been living in an apartment for approximately three years, waiting for the “right” time to buy. When the timing was right our informal attempts to find the “right” house were disorganized, frustrating and ultimately fruitless. We then allowed Adolphus Hawkes, our trusted sales agent to take over. He was very patient with us — but proceeded methodically to locate the “right” house in the desired location and for the desired price. The initial transactions were completed the same evening we first viewed the house! Financing had been preapproved, however, the c losing and settlement as well as all events leading up to it, were extremely well orchestrated. I felt particularly proud to have been as well informed as our mortgage counselor, due to excellent briefings provided by Adolphus. This also allowed us to go to settlement feeling knowledgeable and confident, as well as comfortable during the proceedings.
