My client was schooled in England and is now in charge of strategic planning for a technology firm, so he is comfortable setting a course and following through. While we were in contract to buy his Noe Valley home, it became apparent that the Seller was not keen on selling. Her agent said that she had lived in the house for over 30 years and she dreaded the task of moving. Moreover, the Seller received a back up offer that was higher than my client’s offer. My client really liked the house and I told him that he had the first mover advantage. As long as he did everything that he promised in the contract, the house would be his. He stayed on track and the backup buyers are still looking. Thinking of making a move? Call me.
