I've been a homeowner now for about 3 weeks. Got a nice place here in Beaverton on a cul de sac.
Have to say that buying a house, particularly my first house has been a big deal.
But I wouldn't have gotten very far or found the perfect place without the help of my Realtor, Marty Weil.
What can I say about Marty, other than he rocks? And those who know me know that I don't give praise lightly or very often.
For one thing you won't find another Realtor out there that works as hard as Marty. He really busts his buns to find you what you are looking for.
He also really understands this real estate market in this area. He's been doing this stuff for over 20 years now.
Marty walked me through the whole process and helped me find a house that I loved for a price I could handle. He really understood what it was that I was looking for and made it happen.
Plus he has a lot of contacts for various contractors from painters to cleaners to roofers. He doesn't stop working for you after the sale. He has continued to help me out by finding me a good exterior painter for instance.
Lastly, he's just a real pleasure to work with.
Basically, if you don't have Marty Weil as your Realtor in the Portland metro area (Beaverton, Hillsboro, Aloha, Lake Oswego, Portland, etc.) you are losing out, big time.
Oh and his customer appreciation outings are real fun too. I hadn't even bought my house yet and I got invited to his most recent one at a mini golf course and driving range in Tigard.
I almost forgot to mention the helpful book he gives you after the close that details all the utilities for your area as well as has a listing of local business. Like I said, Marty and his staff go the extra mile for you. I couldn't recommend him more.
