I recently had the pleasure of working together with some buyers relocating to South Pasadena. They fell in love with our “small town” community and recognized that the schools would be ideal for their children. Although the marketplace can be difficult for buyers at the moment, my client’s diligence in searching for a home paid off. We were able to identify an “off-market” property that they liked. An “off-market” property is one which is not listed in the MLS (that’s the realtor’s database of homes currently for sale). Their offer was accepted, and their dream of home ownership in South Pasadena became a reality.
The property at 424 Fremont Avenue in South Pasadena is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home measuring around 1,500 square feet. It was built in the 1920’s and has been updated with modern electrical and plumbing – as well as central heat and air.
Here’s what my clients had to say about working together with me on their South Pasadena home search and purchase: “We couldn’t be more grateful that Derek worked with us to buy a home in South Pasadena. His knowledge of the market is unparalleled and his patience and guidance throughout the process was invaluable to us. Derek’s goal was to make sure we found a great home for our family, definitely not to simply make a quick commission. He helped us locate inspectors and contractors so that we could get comfortable that the home we were buying was structurally sound and a good investment. His advice and process management in getting the deal closed were spot on. During the process of buying our home, we couldn’t have imagined anyone better to work with and now, as home owners, appreciate his friendship, neighborliness and continued perspective on homeownership in South Pasadena.”
If you are interested in selling or buying a home in an off-market transaction, give me a call anytime to discuss how we can work together on your real estate needs.
