As the executor of my parents' estate, we attempted to sell the house For Sale by Owner using Zillow. Although we received numerous inquiries 'rent to own' or 'rental' inquiries, there were no legitimate buyers. Eventually, we decided we needed to hire a real estate agent. We interviewed 3, and chose Aaron Bircher because at our first meeting he came prepared, showed us his marketing strategy, and based on local stats, he was hands-down the guy selling the most properties in the area. We signed the listing agreement on March 11, 2020, and three days later, the world went into COVID 19 quarantine.
Despite the challenges of selling our house in a time when holding a traditional OPEN HOUSE was unthinkable, Aaron utilized social media marketing to generate interest. After several showings indicated that the price required adjustment, he counseled us but also listened to our desire to maximize the greatest return possible given the proceeds were to be divided between 3 siblings. Most of all, he heard me say that I wanted to sell the home to someone who 'would love it the way my parents did for 40 years.'
When we received an offer from one of Aaron's buyers, he had to help us navigate a very complicated sale which included 2 home inspections that uncovered some issues that neither of us expected. In the end, repairs were made, re-inspections passed, and the buyer was elated that she was able to buy her dream home. His buyer was SO happy that she even WROTE A THANK-YOU NOTE TO ME for selling her this house!!! We couldn't be more pleased with Aaron Bircher, who brought us a buyer who will, indeed, love and care for the home that my parents loved and lived in for 40 years. Thanks, Aaron!!!
