"Eventually all things fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moments, and know EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON.”?—?Albert Schweitzer Wow … this quote is ABSOLUTELY SPOT ON as it epitomizes my recent experience in purchasing a Second Home in Santa Cruz. Here is how my experience unfolded…
My middle daughter happened to see a home listing in Scotts Valley that from all appearances seemed to be The Home that could be The One. She asked if I would look into the listing on her behalf and find out if it possible to visit the property. I contacted the Listing Agent, TROY HINDS, and informed him of my daughter’s interest in the property. He was gracious, knowledgeable and more importantly, extremely honest in giving me all the pertinent aspects of the home … both positive, as well as potential negative areas that might be a concern for my daughter. My daughter visited the listing and surmised this beautiful home would not in fact be The One as the areas of concern happened to be the areas that Troy had shared with me (I had not shared as I wanted her to see for herself).
I found Troy’s honesty, integrity, as well as knowledge in the Real Estate arena to be a valuable commodity for me in a realtor to assist me in finding a potential investment property. To add wealth to his experience, I found out Troy comes from a family that have been lifetime members in the construction business, which in itself is an invaluable asset when looking at all the aspects of a potential property!! Troy worked tirelessly to assist me in finding the right property. There were many times I’d send him a few listings to visit and he would research the ++ and -- , and similar to what he did on my daughter’s behalf … He would take me out to see it for myself and let me make the final decision. I valued his opinion and his advice AND loved the fact it ALWAYS felt he had my best interest at heart and not primarily The Sale.
When Troy and I finally found The One … there were many glitches along the way that Troy was able to trouble shoot and problem solve. I have to admit I was at my wits end and was ready to throw in the towel, but his calming demeanor and fierce determination would always convey ‘it would all work out’ helped to quieten my frustrations. Troy Hinds … I am grateful for your time and patience and will definitely use your services again … You Rock!!!"
