Ed Eyerman with Trusted Realty Group is like the Superman of the real estate world! I recently purchased my first home and from start to finish, Ed has been there to help me through the entire process.
My journey began in May 2012 when I received a pre-approval from a loan broker. I have several friends who are realtors but decided on working with Ed based on his knowledge and experience in the Orange County market. At our first meeting, Ed went over the entire process with me and what to expect from start to finish. The next morning he began sending me MLS listings that he thought I'd be interested in. My original plan wasn't to buy right away but I quickly became obsessed with looking at places online so we began seeing them in person. I started using Redfin on my iPhone and iPad and would constantly send him places to look up in MLS and he'd respond to me promptly. The first place we looked at I wanted to write an offer on, Ed know me, my personality, and what I'd like about this place making it the perfect fit. Although I didn't write an offer on that home, we quickly visited and wrote offers on most of the Orange County inventory (in my price range). Ed's knowledge of short sales (and the entire process) really helped me in my decisions on what offer to write.
On a Saturday morning in August, we looked at two places, one I would end up in escrow on, and the second would eventually be my new home. We wrote offers on both and my offer on the first place was accepted. I won't forget being at my office that Friday evening when I got the call from Ed "Congratulations, you're going to be a homeowner!" He totally shared in my excitement! But that excitement turned into disappointment when the next week my lender called me to tell me I had to terminate escrow as they had screwed up in a major way and wouldn't be able to fund my loan. Ed tried doing all he could to ensure I didn't have to terminate and he was disappointed and upset about the news as I was. After this, Ed worked with my lender to ensure this wouldn't happen again and that the next place we were in escrow on wouldn't have any lender issues.
Two weeks later I was at dinner and I got a call from Ed that the second place we had seen that August morning and wrote an offer on wanted to know if I was still interested as the short sale has been accepted but the first buyer picked backed out. We wrote an offer first thing the next morning and within 5 minutes the offer was accepted.
The rest of the process was as smooth sailing as it could be. During escrow, Ed was a champion in my corner with any issues that came up he made sure they were taken care of by the seller. I don't think this man ever sleeps because day and night, he's working! I was in Chicago for the first week of escrow but Ed was at my house with the inspector and getting things taken care of in my absence.
After 27 days, I was a new homeowner! I'd say Ed and the agents at Trusted Realty Group truly care about you and your experience. They're compassionate and understanding how stressful and exciting the process is and are more like a companion through the process rather than someone who is just there to collect a paycheck. I'd recommend Trusted Realty Group to all my friends and family for all their SoCal real estate needs!
