Lou and Alena Buy Their First Home Together

Todd Pearl is a great agent, as many other reviewers have commented.  He came recommended from two sets of friends, and he helped my wife and I buy our first home. When Todd took us to open houses, I realized he also has a good relationship with most of the agents in the area too. I’d like to share three examples of what makes him stand above other agents.
1) Todd is incredibly responsive. The first weekend, we found a house we liked online, and with Todd’s encouragement visited it on our own (Todd was on vacation that weekend). We really loved the house, and Todd was able to help us put in an offer, on a Sunday, with about 24 hours notice, while he was out of town.
2) Todd has integrity. After we were in escrow on one house, during the inspection, we discovered multiple issues, including a cracked foundation and unpermitted structural modifications. Todd didn’t pressure us, and in fact said he would understand if we pulled out of the sale. Another agent may have just tried to make the sale (and commission). Todd’s integrity saved us years of headaches.
3) Todd makes an incredible complex process manageable. We used a shortened escrow, and Todd managed a detailed schedule and kept everything running smoothly. He was always reachable via phone, text, or email. He had a good personal relationship with the seller’s agent, and was able to help us tailor a bid and negotiations around his understanding of the sellers. We actually closed 36 hours before we left the country on a planned vacation, and the closure date never slipped.

Todd is a great agent. He helped us buy a home at our own pace. He never pressured us to move faster or slower than we wanted. He was the perfect partner for us.
