I have used the service of Gary Swittel and his team three times in the last eight years. First to buy my previous condo in Fox Point in 2011, then to sell the condo and buy our new house in Glendale in 2018. It was pure chance that I found Gary when I needed help with the first purchase eight years ago. I was so impressed with his knowledge and professionalism that we went straight to him when it was time to upgrade. You might have noticed the change in pronouns from “I” to “we” in the previous sentences. You see, between buying the condo in 2011, and then the house in 2018, I have gotten married and my wife and I were expecting our first child.
The first time I worked with Gary it was all man-to-man, straight up, no nonsense business. The second time though, a little more diplomacy and sensitivity was called for. My wife and I had somewhat different levels of understanding of the market and the process of buying and selling. We also had slightly different requirements and expectations. Gary was very patient with both of us, both when we were touring houses, and when we sat down to formulate and evaluate offers, and spent extra time with us to make sure everyone was on the same page.
While buying the house, Gary was very good with helping us figure out what repairs we must insist the sellers make. When selling the condo, Gary was very honest about the type of upgrades we might need to perform to facilitate a quicker sale; and how much our asking price might need to drop if we were unwilling to perform those upgrades. In both cases, offer and counteroffer documents were drafted accurately and delivered quickly, with plenty of expert advice added.
We have now lived in our Glendale house for almost a year and we couldn’t be happier with our purchase.
