Connie is a Rain Maker!
We just sold our house for full price in the midst of a pandemic with the stock market in free fall, down over 10,000 points. Why did we sell? Connie De Groot is the primary reason.
Our house was in good condition in a great area – North of Montana, Santa Monica. We listed our home with a previous broker who had several great ideas, but after seven months, they were unable to get the price we knew the house was worth.
We considered Connie because she had a recent track record of selling properties North of Montana that were difficult to sell. We brought her in and asked her how she was able to sell these other homes when ours hadn’t sold. She explained that we needed to make some changes, and have faith in her process. But first, we needed to move out! She would take over as the Captain of the ship, and we would get in her boat.
Connie made the difference. She exudes confidence, backs it up with performance, and makes things happen quickly. Connie’s key is the group of professionals who work on her team.
Improvements were accomplished on a tight schedule in less than a month. Connie also identified improvements that weren’t necessary, saving us about $125,000. Connie didn’t stop working, and like the Energizer Bunny, continued fine-tuning the details long past the start of escrow.
Connie is a Rain Maker. The results were four offers in less than a week on the market. Hallelujah!
Connie is the consummate professional, always available and hard working. She knows the marketplace better than most, is always ready with expert advise and takes the pain and stress out of selling your home.
“Here she comes to save the day…” is the best way that I can describe my experience with Connie. With Connie’s expertise, diligence and personal understanding of your needs, she stands above the rest. I was not able to fully use her on my recent real estate transaction although, as a friend, she helped me monitor it. As it goes, everybody knows closing the deal is an art. Offers came in and I was not impressed with the way my agent handled things. When I thought it was going to be a long, contentious back-and-forth with the buyer, Connie called me 45 minutes later and made me an additional hundred thousand dollars. Done deal! As time passed, from beginning to end, I noticed Connie always kept up with the latest buying and selling trends that my original agent had no concept of. Thank you Connie for taking away the pain and anguish of selling my home! I highly recommend her to anybody that’s in need of a truly professional real estate agent.
In summary, we highly recommend Connie, and will miss working with her. If we ever had a move back to LA, she’d be the first person we’d call.
Recently, our daughter, Alexandra, purchased a condominium in Sherman Oaks, CA. She was very fortunate in having Ms. Connie De Groot as her real estate agent. We connected with Connie, by chance, from an internet search on a LA real estate website. Although she typically worked with clients who engage in significantly greater purchases in the Los Angeles area, Connie offered to work with us and was one of the most professional and helpful agents we could have ever asked for. Given the fact we both reside in Michigan where Alex originally resided, you could imagine the magnitude of the challenge of coordinating a purchase remotely from Michigan. It should be understood that Connie turned this challenge into an achievable and fun task, always available to assist us at any hour of the day with multiple email exchanges and/or phone calls to address our questions and concerns. Would we recommend Connie to others? Absolutely!!! Would our daughter seek her out if ever to purchase another property? You bet!! There are not many realtors that would have been as diligent, patient, and kind towards us, and that was greatly appreciated. On behalf of both of us, and our daughter Alex, we would like to extend a special thanks to a special person and new friend. Thank you, Connie.
