By the time I was referred to Hoda, I had been through 2 agents and had the house listed for almost a year. Several hurdles came up in that time and I finally had an offer on it to close by the end of June. I flew from overseas to close but only a couple of hours before landing, the buyer pulled out outside of contingencies. I called Hoda from the airport on June 30th and a few days later, I signed the listing agreement with her. Within days, she had the house staged and ready to sell. Within hours of that and barely a day into listing it, she had an offer ready, a backup, and had everything setup and ready for me to decide on. She made up for all the time I lost with the other agents within a couple of days of me signing. After that the house went into escrow, during which she was on top of all the steps we had to go through, from inspections to contingency removals to qualifying buyer funding. Everything went like clockwork and the entire process was seamless to me. Compared to what I dealt with before, this was a major upgrade in performance. I was impressed with the fact that she estimated the sale price exactly as much as the appraisal came in, suggested the perfect starting price point, suggested the right cosmetic changes and delivered on all her commitments. Going through this process as a first time home seller, I never gave too much thought to how much the agent matters, and always assumed the house would sell itself based on its own merit. I was dead wrong. You want an individual like this on your side. I would definitely recommend her to anyone, and will use her again in the future for my real estate transactions. Good luck!
