My experience with Christy Rodgers in the purchase of my town house was a wonderful! I literally had my first and only offer submitted and accepted with no counter within 24 hours. Christy was an extremely knowledgeable, personable, and very friendly real estate agent who cared about my experience throughout the whole process. Her consistent professionalism and constant communication made me feel at ease and confident. I used Christy to purchase land in Spearfish ten years previous to this current home purchase, so I was very familiar with her skill level and knowledge of the Spearfish area. When we we sat down to discuss pricing strategies for my offer, we were definitely on the same page on how to approach it in a way that met my needs, desires, and budget.
When we initially scheduled a day to see two properties of interest, I instantly fell in love with the 2nd town home. Christy knew me so well that she was able to validate my feeling and instinct that the property was a perfect fit for me. I wanted to wait 6 months to purchase in the Spearfish area, but Christy's experience of the fast moving housing market indicated I should make an immediate offer. My perception during my home search was that the availability of this type of home, its location, and the timing of the sale were rare. Therefore, Christy was also able to validate this through her current and thorough familiarity of Spearfish town home inventory. All of her feedback and advice gave me the assurance to jump at the opportunity within hours of seeing the place.
Christy also possesses a tenacity that was quite surprising and wonderful. This was exemplified when I left the country for vacation while the financing was going through my military bank. I had completed all the paperwork and called the bank several times before my departure, but there was still a delay with the processor getting started on my loan approval. My communications were limited and time was passing quickly when there was still no progress. On my behalf, Christy called the bank to get them moving so we could close by the end of the year. She was firm and unrelenting until they gave her a proper answer of timelines to get the loan application processed. From that day forward, the loan processor was assigned, communicative, and very customer service oriented. I was very appreciative of her efforts and joked that that the bank had no idea how powerful and independent a South Dakota woman can be when pushed.
Throughout the whole process Christy continually kept me informed on the progress of each stage of the home purchase and immediately provided all documents to the bank and the titling company. She did this by phone calls, texts, emails, and she always answered the phone and my questions. To this day, she continues to offer her support of good contractors and service people in the area to support the maintenance and future remodeling of my town house. If you are looking for a professional real estate agent that will take care of you from start to finish, Christy is the person with whom you need to list your house or purchase one. Thanks for everything Christy!
