“Before I acquired Elizabeth Velasco and Velasco Team as my realtor, I was dealing with two previous realtor; one of those realtor brought me into a home that needed a lot of TLCs and she was trying to convince me that it was a good buy and the TLCs are just minor issues like dark and stain carpet flooring and some portion of the carpet has holes, interior walls that desperately needed painting, broken electrical outlets and switches, outdated kitchen countertop, bedrooms that have different paint colors and damaged front yard lawn. She even told me that I should put up additional $10K on top of the asking price just to have a chance to be accepted for the offer. Hmmmm…
The other realtor I was dealing with often times can’t show up to property that I was interested to look at because he has to commute from the bay area and when it is time to submit an offer, it would take him few days before he can submit the offer.
Since I was pressed for time to look for a new home, I was frustrated and tired working with those two realtors. I needed someone that can help me find my home.
Elizabeth Velasco was the answer to all the issues that I was going through hunting for home. Before we started hunting for home, Elizabeth educated me in the process of getting a house such as different types of loans and lenders ( and her own lender ) and what to look for in the property that may affect asking price and home fixing cost. She gave me access to listing website in that way, information on current listings is up to date. Everytime that I see new listings, Elizabeth would be at the property that I am interested to look at within an hour or two even though she had to drive almost an hour to get to the site. Elizabeth was quick to point out (potential) issues on the property before we make an offer.
Elizabeth is very good on negotiating the asking price and she based it on the cost that I may come across in fixing the home taking into account the comp price of the neighborhood. During the process and negotiation, Elizabeth was constantly in communication with me for updates. Elizabeth Velasco is very reliable, knowledgable and skillful, confident, very easy to work with and most of all she puts her client first when it comes to my home buying. She’s got great people skills and always always give you the confident smiles! That is why I recommended her to help out one of my friend to buy her new home right after I bought mine. I am happy with my home! Excellent work Elizabeth Velasco and Velasco Team!!!”
