Notes from the Agent~ Major Success Story

I don’t even know where to start with this one… but I’ll try. The very condensed version: In 2016 my son needed some extra…..“something.” We immediately knew Master D at Aliso Hills taekwondo was it. He helped us with H in so many ways. Parenting takes a village. As I was growing my team and business I had an incredible team member Peter Barretta Come to me with a wonderful family (Barry K) that may need my help someday. Well, Peter unfortunately passed away, way too young. Wayyyy too young.

In 2017 I met Barry with whom I was introduced to by Peter. I had continued to call Barry and grow a friendship with Barry. We talked about his plans, real estate, his family and so much more. We met several times at his home on Via Larga to discuss “someday” selling his home.

Sam, his son was still in college so he really wasn’t ready. He’d occasionally call me and ask me about paint or carpet or if he should do this or that. We spoke of market conditions and so much about pricing and what his home could or would sell for.

Well, as I continued to check in….and he’d check in with me too. He always asked me if anyone wants a one story home in this neighborhood to call him. He said that for 4 years. He never wanted to put his home on the market for many many reasons. (Not my story to tell).

Well fast forward to June 2021……Paul D’Ambrosio and Kim D’Ambrosio needed to sell both of their condos, do a purchase as “contingent” buyers with 2 homes on the down leg. OMG it’s near impossible to do that in this market with one home, let alone 2. I had just spoken with Barry again a week prior to meeting with the D’Ambrosios. Boom it was time! Master D was describing Barry’s home and didn’t even know it. I knew it. Needless to say this is an obvious outcome that I could go on and on about, but this would be 30 pages, and “ain’t no one got time for that!”

I love all these people here and thrilled that everyone GENUINELY got what they wanted. Happy closing day friends!!!! And thank you Peter for your constant presence.
