Twenty nine years ago, Lee Ann sold us our home in Lewes. She represented the seller and we first met her at the settlement table. She was very professional and thorough, making our purchase a pleasure.
About a year ago, I decided to sell a piece of land in Milton, DE. Owing to my first experience with her, Lee Ann was my obvious choice of agent. I chose well: she made everything very smooth. I got an offer within a month and after some negotiation, we settled without a hitch. Impeccable professionalism from Lee Ann and her team, again.
This past December:
Tragically, my wife had recently died. I was feeling anxious to make some big changes, including leaving the house and town we’d shared for so long. I contacted Lee Ann. We worked out a selling price and I decided to move forward using her as the exclusive agent.
She was receptive to my needs, offering insightful suggestions without pushing me to make any changes or concessions that I wasn’t comfortable with. She cared about me and my home, representing it in its best, honest light. Her commission options felt quite fair to me as the seller.
To their impressive credit, Lee Ann & her team found a buyer much faster than I had anticipated.
It was at that point that my stomach dropped, realizing I’d sadly made the mistake of selling too quickly. It used to be my wife and I making these large life decisions together, and it struck me that I’m not yet ready to leave this beautiful home and town of ours behind.
Not knowing what to do, I called Lee Ann. She showed incredible empathy then jumped directly into doing all she could to help me correct my error and keep my home (with neither a single moment of pressure nor frustration about losing her sale). Despite all I’ve already written, I simply haven’t words to express my appreciation for her monumental integrity and compassion.
I’m happily writing this review from my home, thanks to her. She found another property for the buyers and while I can’t speak for them, I watched her expertly balance meeting both their needs and mine. All while treating me, not like the source of what must have been a difficult challenge, but like a friend.
So, to whoever has read this far, I offer two pieces of advice…
1) If you’re considering living in Lewes (or Sussex County), do it. The same magic that captivated my wife & I so many years ago just kept me from the regret of leaving this place.
2) Choose Lee Ann, whether buying or selling. Finding someone this caring and ethical in any business is a rarity; she goes above and beyond to make a sale as fair and easy as possible for all parties involved.
