Taunya, We recently had a major move out of the Bozeman area to north western Washington State. My husband took a position with a company there and had to leave immediately. I was a bit concerned about being left with a 2yr old and trying to get my house sold quickly so that we could all be together. I interviewed several agents that seemed relatively competent but they all had to get back with me, check on prices and think about how best to market the house. There also seemed to be the gloomy warning of slowing house sales at this time of the year (late September).
When Taunya showed up I knew immediately that she would be the agent for us. She came with comparable market value comps in hand, she had her camera ready to take pictures and list that day, she had a marketing plan that included internet, newspaper, and television ads, at no additional charge to her standard commission. I was so impressed I agreed to sign with her on the spot. She was very helpful in coming up with a fair price that would have our house sold quickly but still assure us a great profit. Taunya began work immediately and kept her word and all her promises for her advertising package. She then wasted no time in setting up an open house only days after the listing was posted and did not one, but two full days in a row, on the first weekend of the listing.
Both days went very well, but at the end of the second day as she was packing up to leave a single man drove up on his motorcycle and asked if she would show him around. Even though she was ready to go, Taunya cheerfully agreed. He seemed like an unlikely buyer for such a large family home, and she had been told by many a naysayer that ”no one ever sells houses to buyers at open houses”. It turned out that though he did not have an agent, he was a serious buyer and was also so impressed with Taunya that he not only made an offer, but used her as his agent as well! Taunya handled being a dual agent with professionalism and fairness to both parties, making sure she took care of every detail with expediency and enthusiasm.
She even helped move up the closing date so all parties could move forward as quickly as possible. She made the experience fair, smooth and easy! But Taunya did not stop at the signing. She continued to follow up after the sale. Taunya spent her time making sure that we were set up with an agent in our new home and even followed up with finding a fantastic lender who worked extremely hard to make our experience buying our new home here as easy as possible. We cannot say enough about the integrity and professionalism that Taunya displayed in a world where you don’t often see that kind of work ethic anymore. We truly felt blessed! We would urge anyone in the Bozeman area to use Taunya as their agent if they truly want the best. And we wish her continued success and prosperity in the future. Sincerely, Jeff & Terri Stanley
