"To say that Claudette went above and beyond in helping us find a home would quite frankly be a gross understatement. You see we currently live in Chicago and have been thinking of moving south for a while. Planning has never been our strong suite and in March we decided to jump on our motorcycles and check out some coastal homes in Bay St Louis and Biloxi MS. On arriving in Bay St Louis Saturday, March 23rd, 2019 around 11am we realized that we would need the help of a realtor if we wanted to actually look at a few homes that we liked and could afford. We googled and called a few local realtors and somewhat understandably get a very lackluster response UNTIL we connected with Claudette @ Gardner Realtors.
We explained to Claudette that we are out of towners, traveling on Motorcycles, and only have a few days to look at some properties and decide. We gave her our list of requirements and within an hour had a nice stack of listings emailed to us. Keep in mind this was all last min and on a beautiful Saturday. We looked through the portfolio and Claudette spent the rest of the day showing us some listing.
Unfortunately, we did not decide that weekend what house we wanted and had to go home. Fortunately, Claudette kept emailing us new listing as they became available and even did a few walkthroughs on our behalf. She would connect with us via FaceTime and in real time give us her take on a listing. This saved us thousands of dollars in having to come down and look for ourselves.
Eventually we settled on a home we loved (ironically enough located directly behind the house we looked at first pictured below) and made an offer. Claudette was instrumental in helping us negotiate and I feel we got a very fair deal. In parallel with submitting, the offer Claudette also put is in touch with an excellent broker, Bill, who helped us secure a mortgage.
Everything has gone incredibly smooth and we are signing the closing papers later today. I think it is pretty amazing that we were able to pick up out a home, get financing, and close on the home remotely all in just over 30 days and it’s all thanks to Claudette!
Claudette thank you for your excellent service and I look forward to meeting you again when we are back in
