Client Spotlight: Debra Francis

Client Spotlight: Debra Francis

Since just about all of our business is referral-based, it’s very rare for us to have a client that knows nothing about our team. But one quiet Friday afternoon in the office, a call came to the main Benchmark  line and our team was the only one here to take it. Debra Francis was calling to say that she no longer had any need for the condo they owned in the Rock Harbor complex and wanted to find a Realtor to sell it for her. She lives in Lake Tahoe, so we warned her that there may be some extra hurdles to cross. Looking back on it now, though, Debra says “With this team… Piece of cake! From the moment I called and spoke with Kat concerning a sale of property 2000 miles from my residence, I knew I was in the best of hands!” After gathering preliminary information, Michelle met with Debra on Monday, listing paperwork in hand. The condo went on the market on Tuesday. We thought it would be great for one of our investors, who put in an offer Tuesday afternoon. By Wednesday, we had a binding contract. The condo closed less than 2 weeks later. What a whirlwind! “I still can’t believe how quickly and easily the condo sold,” said Debra. “These ladies know how to sell property and make sure everything is taken care of to the Seller’s and Buyer’s satisfaction. I cannot overstate how pleased I am with their service. You cannot go wrong choosing this team!” Thanks, Debra! We certainly love when a sale works out this...

Client Spotlight: Lauren Fedders

Client Spotlight: Lauren Fedders

Lauren was looking to purchase her first home in Franklin. She had looked at plenty of existing homes, but eventually decided to purchase a brand new townhouse in a new subdivision called Berry Farms. The biggest lesson she learned? “Always expect the time frame to be longer than expected when building. Definitely have a plan B.” She was supposed to close in December, but delay after delay meant that her home was not ready for her to move in until the middle of March! Every time it seemed like we were getting close, a “final” walkthrough would reveal a new issue that needed to be taken care of. We had to adjust to many different scenarios, even including Lauren living on a friend’s couch for a period of time, but our team worked with her to make it all turn out okay. “Kat was always very responsive and available if I could not get Michelle. There is a good dynamic there.” Finally, after months of delays and re-negotiating concessions with the builder for taking so much longer than promised, Lauren moved in to the home she always wanted. “My favorite part of the house is definitely the balcony. I love sitting out there with a glass of wine watching the storms roll in and/or enjoying a cup of coffee in the weekend.” We’re so happy that it finally all fell into place for...

Client Spotlight: Skylar Laine Harden

Heard of that name before? If you watch American Idol, you might have! Skylar was one of the top five performers on season 11 of the show. After so much success, she decided to take her dream of being an artist one step further and move with her dogs and boyfriend to Music City to purchase her first home. Skylar said, “I always loved Nashville and wanted to move here. My music career is taking off and the timing just seemed right!” At 19 years old, Skylar is the youngest home buyer the Michelle Froedge Team has ever worked with. She was referred to us through a family friend who had used Michelle as an agent in the past. The logistics of Skylar’s home search were a little bit difficult with a six hour drive between Nashville and her hometown of Brandon, Mississippi, but she says it was worth the extra effort to get to work with our team. “I had a great experience with the team. Michelle understood what I was looking for. We saw a great variety of properties and she helped me figure out what would be best for me.” In the end, Skylar chose a beautiful townhouse just a few miles from downtown Nashville. She loves the location of being on the hills, yet five minutes from the interstate and Kroger or Walmart. She got the granite countertops and hardwood floors she was looking for, and it seems like her dogs have settled in quite nicely! We were so happy to be able to help Skylar find the right...
