Meet The Burns Family

When it came to finding a new home, Robert & Jamie Burns were worried about finding the best fit for their family. They were also nervous about leaving the city (after 12 years!) and moving to the suburbs, which they recognized would be a total adjustment.

 

"We were looking for an agent that was familiar with the market in the area, would give us honest opinions about that market and the homes we were considering in general and also that would help us get the best value for our money."

How Did You Find The JDT Team?

Jamie's sister Julie and her husband Josh Dean used JD when purchasing their condo, and he came highly recommended from them. Their recommendation turned out to be spot on!

What was the home buying process like?

Nerve-racking! When we first started with our search It seemed like every house we saw did not meet our expectations and differed from the online listings. Also, they all seemed to go contingent very quickly. However, the day “our house” was listed online and we got a notification from the Jonathan Darin Team that it had been listed (which was extremely helpful) we knew it was the house for us.  Jonathan got us back-to-back weekend showings right away and from there he and his team helped us navigate the inspection process, a somewhat difficult seller and everything else right up to and through the closing.

Were there any difficult parts or surprises? 

At one point, after we were under contract, the seller was being particularly difficult about letting us in to take measurements for a planned remodel. JD handled the situation with stride, smoothed things over with the seller and his realtor and got us in that weekend to take the measurements.

 

"From the beginning, when we made the decision to go with the JD Team we knew it was the right one. They really made us feel like they wanted to help and they definitely were not just going through the motions or in for the “quick-sell” like some other realtors we talked to. We could tell they cared about finding the right fit for us rather than just selling us a house. Even after the sale, the JD team still make us feel appreciated and continues to check in on us to say hi and see how things are going."

Tell us about your house

The house is great! We've done a lot of work so far and still have a lot of work that we plan to do. So far we've done 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, laundry room, patio door, kitchen cabinets, kitchen backsplash, all interior doors, all the baseboard and trim, and the garage. We plan to focus on the outside next year with the pool deck and pavers. In the 5 year plan we will do the staircase, windows and siding, hardwood flooring, kitchen remodel, and a complete gut of the basement.

 

What advice would you have for future clients of the Jonathan Darin Team?

Put your trust in them! They know what they are doing and will be your honest and trusted advisor through the whole process.

 

"The JD Team was definitely a bright spot during a stressful time. They also contributed to reducing the stress of the home buying process through their professionalism, courtesy, attention to detail, know-how, efficiency…the list goes on!"
