First Timer in Milly
Being a wholly female operation we love when we get to work with independent boss babes building their own empires. Hollie is all of that and a longtime friend of Alliance. When her living situation changed and it was time to decide if she was going to rent or buy, we’re happy she decided to invest in herself and we are even happier we were the ones to help her through this transition.
“I was in the market for a place to live, and I originally started looking for a place to rent just for the sake of ease. But, the prices for rentals here are out of this world, unless I wanted to have a roommate. I realized I could live alone in a good sized place for less money than to rent an apartment, while investing in a home rather than essentially throwing money away every month.”
Hollie landed in the coolest little Millcreek condo for well under 200k. With 2 large bedrooms, a balcony, covered parking, and the most amazing retro wood burning fireplace. It’s close to her work and is the perfect fit for her busy lifestyle as a young professional.
“I like relaxing and watching movies in my living room and reading in a cozy chair near the fireplace. I love that my community has a pool and that I don’t have to deal with yard work or snow removal.”
“I tried let the process evolve without getting too stressed. I wasn’t in a place where I was desperate to move, so I wasn’t rushed. I basically told my agent, Ashley, what my budget was and the areas that I wanted to look in, and she sent me listings on a regular basis. Anything and everything I was interested in, we looked at.”
“When I got excited about something and then was maybe let down or disappointed because a property didn’t meet all my needs, Ashley reminded me that there are plenty of condos out there, and the right one will come along. If this purchase didn’t work out, it just meant that this one wasn’t the right one. It was nice to be reminded that I could take my time and what I was looking for was out there somewhere. I loved that Ashley didn’t waste time and was always on top of asking questions, lining up viewings, and getting information. I never felt like she put anything off or forgot any detail.”
“I am a first time buyer, and I knew absolutely NOTHING about buying. I knew no terms, nothing about financing, and nothing about the process at all. Ashley explained everything to me and answered all of my questions, making sure I understood all the steps, without making me feel like I was in the dark at any point or that I was foolish for not understanding some of this stuff!”
