“Words cannot describe how reassuring it is to know that not only do you have an agent who is willing to go the extra mile, but someone who will make your life as stress-free as possible throughout the home-searching and buying process.”
As first time buyers, we were apprehensive and overwhelmed by the prospect of entering the real estate market and decided to seek Britta’s assistance; she was highly recommended by another Sotheby’s agent a family member had used on the East Coast.
From the first day that we worked with Britta we were struck by her incredible enthusiasm and heartfelt sincerity. As we learned quickly, having an agent that is both an advocate and a confidant is imperative when buying a home, and we were pleased to find that Britta was quick to fill both roles. She was unflinchingly honest in her appraisals of the properties that we were viewing but steadfast in her belief that, first and foremost, the buyers must be happy with the property that they are purchasing.
Despite entering the market at a time when demand outpaced supply and there were a historically high number of buyers, with Britta’s guidance we were able to find our dream property in a short amount of time, and negotiate to a price that was both well within our price range and reflected the value of the property.
In addition to being a talented real estate agent, Britta is unfailingly punctual and organized. She always called or e-mailed when she said she would and made sure to arrive early to appointments to view properties. Britta went out of her way to ensure that house hunting did not interfere with our busy work schedules, which only permitted us to look at properties on some weekends or in the late evenings. Despite this constraint, Britta always made time to go to properties with us or answer our questions, even if it cut into her own personal time. On one evening, she took time in the middle of a personal obligation to speak on the phone with us for over an hour about a specific property (which was the property that we ended up buying).
We were also very impressed with Britta’s ability to both handle specific details, like scheduling all of our property inspections in a very short period of time, while also understanding big picture concepts and negotiating on our behalf for the best possible purchase terms. As we were first time buyers in a new city we had no idea where to start in terms of hiring home improvement specialists like painters. Britta was always willing to offer multiple suggestions, and although she encouraged us to vet the contractors on her own, all of her recommendations were with reliable and reputable organizations who did a fantastic job.
Essentially, we did not feel like we just had a real estate agent, we felt like we had someone in our corner, with endless enthusiasm, who was negotiating on our behalf every step of the way. In particular, I recall one instance where the seller’s real estate agent told us we could not view a property during a specific time period, the only time period we were available. Britta told us she would handle it, and the next day we received confirmation that we could view the property at the date and time we requested.
Words cannot describe how reassuring it is to know that not only do you have an agent who is willing to go the extra mile, but someone who will make your life as stress-free as possible throughout the home-searching and buying process. Not only is Britta a fabulous negotiator and real estate agent, she also became a friend to both of us throughout our home buying process. We are happy to recommend her to anyone looking to purchase real estate.Don and Helena
“We highly recommend Britta, whose astounding industry knowledge, client advocacy, dedication and personal attention made us feel like royalty.”
It is with pleasure and gratitude that we share comments about our experience with Britta Diaz of Sotheby’s during the recent purchase of our new home. While it was not our first time buying a home, we had never before encountered such exceptional service.
Throughout the four months that Britta spent with us during our search, offer and closing, she not only imparted a wealth of knowledge about neighborhoods, house construction and the local real estate market—she acted as our unwavering advocate at every step. The market conditions were at a historical low during our tight time frame, and there were multiple offers on almost every listing. It was in great part thanks to Britta’s dedication, sage direction and deft communication that we found the right home and that our offer was accepted.
Finding the house itself was just the beginning of the journey, however. Our closing was fraught with complications, and Britta devoted herself tirelessly to seeking all of the relevant information so we could make the right decisions along the way. At one point, she called 19 different service vendors to get the right one scheduled for us. That one example could easily be considered above and beyond—what sets Britta’s level of service apart is the cumulative effort she made when dozens of similar issues arose.
In addition, Britta was available to us virtually around the clock and maintained a noticeable degree of professionalism, optimism, integrity and grace throughout our communications. We also connected with Britta’s warm personality and sense of humor from the start and now consider her not just our realtor but our lifelong friend.
We highly recommend Britta, whose astounding industry knowledge, client advocacy, dedication and personal attention made us feel like royalty.Jessica and Jonathan
It was a such a pleasure being guided by you.
You have spared no time in marketing the property, getting many qualified applicants and providing us quickly with their information, checking them, recommending in our best interest the tenant we selected, and closing the transaction.
I was also impressed that you recommended a tenant who came through another broker, implying a 50% cut in your commission, when you had been able to get an offer above listing price and without another broker.
Thank you, Thank you!Pierre
