An old friend referred us to Ginge, and after 6-7 months of casual chit chat, a gut feeling told me to begin looking for our first home in earnest, in February 2020. We met with Ginge that week, and she walked us through the pre-approval process and market stats, and helped us devise a plan. We had about 2 or 3 weekends of open houses under our belts before murmurs of a statewide shutdown came about in mid-March. That same weekend, we went to see our perfect little house! We called Ginge immediately, crossed our fingers and toes and dove headfirst into an offer, with not a clue how things would play out. Even while the world was in utter chaos, Ginge and the AZ team helped us move through each step of the process calmly and smoothly, and their professionalism, and helpful and caring nature made a scary time far less so. We were SO relieved to finally move into our house in early July, and cannot thank Ginge and the AZ team enough for not only staying the course, but also keeping us sane throughout!
