“When my wife and I made the decision to relocate to North Carolina, due to a job opportunity we were concerned about buying a house in a new city that we know nothing about. As most home buyers do these days, we jumped on line to start familiarizing ourselves with the area and housing market. Initially, so many different sites came up that we did not know where to begin so we sent a few e-mails to a couple different realtors and Charlotte-based real estate websites to gain some perspective. We heard back from every site we contacted, but the site that featured Mary K Hudome and Wilkinson and Associates sparked our attention more than the others and we immediately felt comfortable. Mary K took the initiative to give us a call to start a personal relationship beyond e-mail and asked specific questions about our housing search, family, needs, neighborhood preferences, and other questions that would equip her with the information she needs to find us a home where we can live for many years. She educated us on the area, the market, and created our own listing site where she pulled available houses that met our criteria for us to peruse online, since we had never stepped foot in Charlotte.
As my wife and I reviewed the available listings, we gained perspective on the neighborhoods and began dreaming about a life in Charlotte. We narrowed our search to a specific neighborhood and Mary K rolled up her sleeves and produced a specific video of some houses so we could get a sense of the neighborhood, street, yards etc . . . Since we have a young family, it was imperative we lived among families in a house not on a busy street. After my wife and I decided on a move date, we communicated with Mary K and she started touring us around and within days of our arrival. One thing we learned from her tour is that the internet does not tell the whole story so immediately our perspective changed. Mary K guided us through this mental transition and recommended other areas where we thought would best fit our needs. One house she shared with us appeared to be a pinch out of our price range, but encouraged us to take a look anyhow. We fell in love with it immediately and she described how we could negotiate due to the current market conditions and it very well could fall within our comfort level. We decided to move forward and make an offer, and to our surprise the buyer responded quickly with a small counter offer and we accepted. Mary K then worked on our behalf through the home inspection process to ensure when we moved in everything that was found to be repaired or replaced was completed. Additionally, Mary K served as a liaison among all the parties in a house purchase including my lender, the seller’s agent, the inspector, repair people, the title company, and closing attorney. In the end, the sale was completed on schedule and my family moved into a beautiful house near downtown Charlotte we will call home for many years to come, even as our family grows.
I recommend Mary K to any prospective home buyer in Charlotte and I am confident you will find working with her as positive an experience as we encountered. Mary K is professional, knowledgeable, thorough, detailed, patient, personable, and enjoyable. If you decide to contract Mary K as your agent, my bet is that you will find the home you hope and have confidence no stone was left unturned throughout the whole process. We are so happy we worked with Mary K and consider ourselves very lucky to have found her on line among the thousands of other agents we could have come across.”
