“Hi Debbie,

We want to take an opportunity during the holiday season to thank you for your efforts in find a buyer for our waterfront lot in Denver. You were able to find us a buyer and close the transaction in less than 90 days, whereas a previous top rated real estate agent was unable to sell the lot for us in eight months.

You held the discussions together between the buyers and ourselves while the price for the lot was negotiated successfully. We are very happy with the price you negotiated for us. You made sure that the buyer secured financing within two weeks of the parties signing the contract.

You established the closing date with the buyers lawyer and held everyone to that closing date.

You worked with the buyer, ourselves and the Company building the pier and boat dock to make sure that the pier and dock were completed before the closing date. When the buyer made some changes to the boat dock plan, you did what was necessary to make sure that the changes did not delay the completion of the pier and dock.

Access to the lot is via an easement across a neighbors property. The easement will contain the utilities and driveway. You made sure that we had all the documentation in place for the easement, the location of the driveway on the easement, (a critical issue for the neighbor) and written documentation from Lincoln County confirming that they will provide water and sewer to the future home on the lot. It took a month to successfully resolve the easement issues and you stayed on top of the issues the whole time.

Finally, at the eleven hour, when it was discovered that the sellers that we originally purchased the lot from had not signed their paperwork correctly, you drove 200 miles to have them resign the documents, have them notarized and to the lawyer to close the transaction on time.

Debbie, you went beyond the call of duty, time after time after time. When the buyers said in and email, “Debbie you are awesome,” they were telling the truth. Debbie you truly are awesome. Nobody could have done what you did and ensure that we closed on time. You did it and you did it nicely while maintaining great relationships with all of the parties involved.

If at anytime in the future, any of our family or friends are in need of a real estate agent, you will be the only agent we can honestly recommend.

Many thanks for everything you did for us.
