I was recently faced with a rental situation that required me to relocate my residence here in the Treasure Valley. After a couple weeks of searching, I became a bit frustrated that I couldn’t find what I wanted for the price I was willing to pay …. enter Melodie Ostman! I was convinced that I wouldn’t qualify to purchase a home at the time due to my recovering financial predicament. Melodie urged me to meet with a specific lender that she works with often (Phil Bergeson of Fairway Mortgage) to see if he could make it work. It was a bit dicey, but Phil had a few tricks up his sleeve and said it was definitely possible.
Melodie went to work and found a home that wasn’t actually listed in the MLS just yet. She showed me the home (which had no offers on it yet) and I felt it would meet my needs …. I couldn’t believe it! We wrote up the offer and she presented it to the seller’s agent. After a reasonable amount of negotiation, the sellers accepted our offer and it was game on! That was back in May, now already six months later I’m still pinching myself.
I know that not just any agent could have made this happen. There were indeed some challenges along the way, but with Mel and Phil’s “can do” approach, knowledge and professionalism …. here I am, a very happy homeowner. I highly recommend Melodie Ostman will definitely work with her again when the time comes. She’s dedicated to her craft and I’m grateful that I found her.
