Women’s Prison & a Short Sale:
My First Deal in Real Estate

"Get into Real Estate", Jerry said. "You’ll be great." Jerry said.  Jerry was my sales manager and a wonderful boss that saw something in me that implied I would be great for this wild ride.
My very first deal in the business I represented buyers. 
We searched, we toured, and we searched some more.  We found the one, except it was a Short Sale.  Luckily, neither they nor I really grasped the ramifications of that.  I didn’t realize what a short sale really meant.  It was 3 months of waiting, emailing, calling, waiting, investigating, and.… waiting.  They were as patient as could be, I think my patience ran out before theirs. Three of my first five deals in the business were Short Sales so I quickly learned the hard way; my lack of patience was gaining me nothing but sleepless nights. My patience has grown exponentially in the last 8 years.
Chowchilla is just north of Fresno and every nickel of 4hrs away, oh and a Women’s State Correctional Facility (i.e. prison).  I found out a week before we were to sign, record, and close this glorious Short Sale that the seller had to spend a little time in Chowchilla and would not be available for signatures!   Ummmm…..I feel like this isn’t normal, is it???  My new sales manager took it in stride, and assured me between bites of his sandwich, ‘Sure, crazier things have happened. Sounds like you need to take a drive!!!’  Huh?   What?  A drive???    What the hell am I going to do, knock on the door and ask for a meeting with her????    This is insane.  Jerry, this was your idea!

What folks are saying about us!
We sold our home in Chico a couple months ago before moving out of state; it was very unique property and there were not a lot of comps available. After several hours of research, Shane priced our home competitively, and within one week we had four offers and eventually closed our house at $5k above asking price. This was about $20k above the limited market info available, but she said she had a gut feeling about our home's value and she was spot on. More important than Shane's keen understanding of the market is her absolute professionalism and caring nature. Shane understands the stress and emotions that can come with selling a family home. She truly wants what is best for you, beyond the sale. You will feel taken care of through the entire process. Thank you Shane for being amazing at what you do! We will continue to recommend you to our friends in Chico!

We have had the pleasure of working with Carolyn twice!
The first time was when we purchased our home; we had such a great experience that when we were going to be selling our home, we called her again! Carolyn makes you immediately feel at ease & confident that things will go smoothly! She was always available to answer our questions and very helpful
in guiding us through the different processes of buying & selling our home.
