I have worked with a number of different realtors over the last 30+ years and have discovered, like in every profession, there are effective realtors and ineffective realtors. Sadly, some realtors’ greatest contribution to the home-buying process is to meet you at the property and open the door. Many times I would walk into the house knowing more about the property than the realtor who was “showing” me the property. I engaged Sandra Newman because of her reputation as a “go-getter,” a knowledgeable and responsive realtor. And I was very pleased that her reputation proved reliable. Sandra worked with me for several months, through many different real estate possibilities. She was inexhaustible, unflagging and patient. She proved repeatedly that her ultimate objective was not to “clinch the sale,” but rather to find the house best suited for us. Beyond her expert- level knowledge of the ins-and-outs of complicated real estate transactions, Sandra was able to advise us on more than the superficial aspects of a potential property. She is knowledgeable about the systems and structures of (sound and not so sound) houses and didn’t hesitate to point out advantages, disadvantages, and potential problems. Because of Sandra’s commitment to find that elusive house (in a very low inventory market), we were more than successful. She alerted us about a house that had just become available and arranged for an immediate showing. We the first buyers in the door. It was exactly what we were looking for! We made an immediate offer, it was accepted, and we closed without a single hitch shortly thereafter. What a glorious day! We are absolutely delighted with our house, and with the exceptional services Sandra provided. If it wasn’t for her diligence, her skill and her commitment, our story would have had a different ending. I recommend Sandra wholeheartedly and without reservation. She is “THE BEST OF THE BEST” in Southwest Michigan!
