Having lived in San Francisco for many years, my wife and I did not think it would be possible to buy our first house in this crazy market. Dale helped us in our search, and guided us through the processes of understanding what we were looking for, of getting secondary inspections and estimates, and of placing bids.
Just as we were beginning to get discouraged, Dale was able to locate a house before it officially came on the market. Because of his agility, patience, contacts, and deep knowledge of the area, he was able to guide us to put together an offer that was accepted.
Dale also connected us with a mortgage broker, and the two of them formed a highly effective team working towards the goals of my family.
As rookies in this game, we brought a lot of anxiety to the process, and over a period of several months Dale carefully moved us towards being in the emotional position necessary for taking the final step. The result: escrow closed about 8 hours ago as I write this.
