I could not be happier with my second experience with Heather Lange, from beginning to end she is the consummate professional. I originally met Heather many years ago at an open house in downtown SJ and when it became time to purchase my first home in 2010 I called on Heather to assist me. I was quite impressed with her ability to get me the starter home of my dreams that was also a short sale and required great knowledge on her part. There was no question that Heather would be my agent when I recently decided to sell in downtown SJ and purchase in Willow Glen.
Heather is ALWAYS available to consult and offer her expert opinion and this is something I have greatly appreciated over the years. She understands that buying and selling a home is a huge life experience and she handles that with great care and sensitivity. I joke that over the years she has been not just my realtor but therapist and life coach as well. This is because I have called on her to consult about selling over the years and also discuss other real estate ventures I have considered. Heather is the best at what she does and gets it done with precision, attention to detail and professionalism. Heather worked alongside me to bring my house to market FAST and make the most possible money for my sale, affording me the opportunity to move into my targeted neighborhood. Prior to coming to market she came by the house and gave me a check-list, gave me referrals for minor work that she recommended, provided us with a detailed timeline so as to know what comes next at each step of the way and was there to offer feedback as questions arose. We got 5 offers, all well over asking, after just 5 days on the market and one weekend of open house. Once the offers were received, Heather organized them all on a spread sheet and presented them to us in a way that was user friendly and detailed. She advised us on what offer to accept given our position as already in contract on another property and ensured that the process of selling was smooth, painless and profitable. We were very pleased to accept an all cash offer 50K over asking that allowed us to move quickly forward with the next step for us.
Simultaneously to bringing my house to market and selling it in 5 days she also represented us in getting our CONTINGENT offer accepted in Willow Glen. In this seller’s market, this part of the transaction required great expertise and negotiation skills. Heather presented a full package to the sellers that instilled confidence in us as buyers and we are thrilled to be almost closed on our new beautiful home in Willow Glen. We have talked to many people who have made offer after offer in this market with no success and those same people are always impressed to learn that the home we bought was our second offer and that it was accepted contingent on the selling of our house in downtown. It seems that Heather has a way of making the stars align and things fall in to place when you do business with her. I highly recommend her and cannot say enough about her. She is intelligent, knows her stuff, will work hard for you and will ensure that you are well represented. I am so happy to have found my real estate professional for this life time. Once you have worked with the best, all others pale in comparison.
