I had the benefit of working with Sunday and Kim as a dynamic Castles Realty duo in securing my place in San Diego! Sunday was recommended to me by a good friend and from our first in-depth conversation over the phone regarding housing market trends in San Diego, Sunday and Kim were both a wealth of information that I could trust. Being a first time home buyer in today’s SoCal market was like drinking from a fire hose. Lots of new information and processes to work through; the kind of stuff that causes stress. The team that was assembled by Sunday to help me through this process was top notch and on more than a few occasions, I know people were taking extra time and steps to answer the million questions I had. This put me at ease. Over the course of looking on-lne and in-person at property after property my feeling about what I wanted and needed evolved. Kim and Sunday are good listeners and asked a lot of question about how I was feeling along the way. Seeing how quickly properties came and went off the market adds a great deal of stress to the buyer, bordering on desperation at times. Kim and Sunday were steady and professional through the search looking at numerous places and even putting in a few offers that ultimately were not accepted, all for the best. When the gem that I ended buying hit the market, Sunday called me right away and dropped everything to make sure we got over to look at it same day. We had an offer going that afternoon and Sunday worked with the seller over and around a number of issues to arrive at a great deal that I was very happy with. Even in a seller’s market, the buyer does have some leverage points and Sunday and Kim were able to tap in to all of them. Through escrow I was kept up to speed at every step and things went smoothly in spite of some hang ups with the complex lending process. I’ve gotten continued help in answering some questions from the whole team after the deal was done which I greatly appreciate. I can say that on the day the closing was official, Kim and Sunday were the main people celebrating with me (in person) and that was a real nice thing. In the future I wouldn’t think twice about working with the same team for buying or selling. Sunday and Kim rock!
