While buying her current home in Center Valley, agent and broker Rebecca Francis shares how trusting her agent and letting her lead helped her find her family’s dream home.
“After moving to the Valley from Hong Kong, I had a set idea of what I wanted in my home. A good layout, including a finished kitchen and open living areas, a trusty location that would hold its value, and a second-floor primary are a few aspects I looked for. For a large portion of my search, I was strongly against the idea of having a first-floor primary bedroom and would barely consider homes that had this feature. My family had been searching for months but to no avail. Nothing was fitting our vision, and I believed that I would have to settle for a house that didn't quite feel like home until our realtor came to me with a proposition.
She had found a home with all the other aspects we were looking for, but it had a first-floor primary. Somewhat begrudgingly, we made our way to the house, unsure of what the outcome would be. But with the beginning of the school year rapidly approaching and not many other options, I decided to push away my former prerequisites and hope for the best. After spending many months conversing and building a relationship with my realtor, I decided to pull back. I recognized that after all this time looking at these homes, she must have a relatively good idea of what I specifically look for in a home and that my best bet in finding a perfect match was simply to trust her. When she opened the front door and I stepped into the foyer, I was suddenly frozen in place. Slowly looking up at the ceiling, then the stairs, the office, and the dining room, I knew that this was the home I wanted to spend my life in. From the other room, my husband mentioned that regardless the house still had a first-floor primary which I was strongly against. Rather than turning back around and walking out the door like many houses before, I simply said, “This is it; this is the house.” If I hadn't put my full undivided trust in my realtor that day, I never would have found the house that my family made into a home. Ten years later, I love my home more than ever, and my number one goal when working with my clients is to give them that exact feeling that I experienced all those years ago.”
