I started my home search around March 2021, casually browsing when I met Jaime Richter and the A to Z Real Estate Group at an open house. My fiancé and I had a lot of basic questions and Jaime was great about answering all of them (and we felt comfortable asking her – what we thought were – silly questions without any judgement!). We decided to work with her as our buyers agent and it was the best decision we made in our first house-buying experience.
With the market as crazy hot as it was (and still is), Jaime curated house options and advised us on how to have the best possible offer without any pressure to commit until we were ready. She knows Essex county. Her network of professional local contacts helped us form the dream team (agent, lender, and attorney). I want to emphasize how important it is to work with locally known professionals — I believe it made all the difference in making our offer stand out.
Throughout the process, I frequently browsed Reddit forums for first-time homebuyers, most of whom had dreadful stories about the process. For us, it was the smoothest thing ever from start to finish. For something that is technically a business transaction, Jaime infused the human element. She kept a pulse check on how we were feeling and constantly stayed in contact (which I think is important for a purchase as big as buying a house).
We highly recommend Jaime to represent you as a buyers agent!!
