Happy Homeowners – The Egees!

Congratulations to The Egees!  This amazing couple got the keys to their brand new home last week.  The Egees had a particularly long and hard road to finding the perfect house, but in the end it worked out better than any of us could have hoped for.

The Egees (Drew and Kalee) are the modern day version of Ward and June Cleaver.  They are the couple that all other couples aspire to be like.  They love each other, enjoy nothing more than spending time together, and never say a bad word about anyone.  They have two kitties, Tom Spencer and RhinoBat, that make even this cat skeptic fall in love with them.  All in all, Drew and Kalee are two of the most wonderful people I have ever met.

We started our house hunt in the middle of cold and dark January.  After seeing only five condos, the Egees found the perfect condo in Eastlake and promptly wrote an offer.  The offer was just as quickly accepted as it was offered, and we were thrilled to be on the way to getting them into their first home.  Except for one small fact — the condo the Egees fell in love with was a short sale.  I could write a novel on the heartache and headache that this short sale caused us.  Long story short, after waiting eight months to get lender consent and never hearing a single word from the banks, the Egees decided to start looking again for a home to call their own.

We must have seen twenty homes and gone out looking four or five different days.  Just as we were starting to lose faith, we decided to look one more time.  And then we found it.  The perfect house!  A big house in Greenwood with designer upgrades and an amazing floor plan.  This house has everything the Egees ever wanted and more.  From the dining room that is perfect for their antique table, to the oversized master suite with a reading nook, to the fireplaces (one gas, one wood burning) to the double shower heads in the master bath, we knew this was the place that the Egees would call home.  We submitted an offer, that offer was accepted the same day, and thirty-one days later, The Egees moved into their new home.   A perfect home for the perfect couple.  To make the experience even more amazing, the sellers left a handwritten note for the Egees sharing with them the best local spots to eat, drink and enjoy.  The sellers even left two beers in the fridge so the Egees could celebrate their first night in the home.  It just doesn’t get any better than that!
