At one of those open houses late last year, I met realtor, Lisa Ellard, of Group Watson. In early 2017, I finally made up my mind I would not sign another lease, and this was the time to buy my first home. I still hadn't decided on a realtor, but not a day later Lisa called to check in and see if I was still in the search for a home. I knew I found my realtor after that first conversation with her! She set up some home searches for me to review until I was ready to actively start looking in June. When finally ready, we met over a cup of coffee, and I expressed to her my excitement and anxiety over the home buying process. She reassured me she would be available to guide me every step of the way. Lisa made the whole process easier for me and less overwhelming. I just closed on my new home, and I couldn't be more excited to begin the next stage in my journey in my new home. Many thanks to Lisa for her help in making this happen!
She was very welcoming, gave us our space, was easy to talk to, and just came off as a genuine person, who I felt would put our best interest first. She also quickly assisted us in seeing a few more houses that day. So when it came time to choose out of the stack of Real Estate agents cards we had collected while visiting open houses Lisa, easily, was our choice. Once we selected Lisa she was on the ball! She started sorting through houses base on what we wanted, which wasn't easy as my wife had some non standard request. Lisa was available to us anytime and had really great recommendations while looking at homes that we hadn't even considered. I knew we made a good choice when she started pointing out things that made a seemingly attractive home void from our list, as we would've been upset later on if we would have selected this home and it didn't fit our long term goals. Once we found the house that was right for us Lisa's negotiating skills also showed evident. She did better than expected in this area and we got a great deal! She attended our inspection, helped get last minute things taken care of and it then it was done, that easy! From start to finish once we found our home it was about 3 and a half weeks. Thanks to Lisa Ellard, Group Watson. Torrey Pinkerton and Supreme Lending we found our home and had a great time doing it.
As first-time home buyers, she let us look at houses she probably knew we'd never buy, then found us the perfect house, and answered our every question along the way. She gave us her honest opinion, even when we didn't always want to hear it, and had solid references for home inspection, etc. She even came to our housewarming party (and didn't hand out business cards)! If you're looking for a realtor, you'd be hard-pressed to find one better than her. If we ever sell this house, she'll be the one selling it. Highly recommend
Lisa Ellard was more than helpful. She was our rock and we could not have done this without her magic wand!! She made sure we had the best experience possible and when there were any issues, she went above and beyond to take care of us!
