Your Home Buying Experience
Q: Please introduce your family?
A: Brian & Rachel Yost (and girls)
Q: Where is your new home located?
A: Ballwin, MO / Parkway West School District
Q: Describe your situation when you decided to purchase your home
A: Our goal was to move closer to the Christian school where our girls were going to attend. We originally found a house we liked and were moving forward without an agent. However, that deal fell through and we were racing against the clock to find another house. We wanted to be moved in before the girls started school. One of Grant's team members, Cary Knobbe, spent numerous hours helping us locate another house. We wouldn't have gotten through it without him. He was patient, insightful and kept us laughing (which we needed from time to time).
Q: What concerns/fears did you have about buying a home?
A: Our major concern was finding the right house, especially after the deal fell through with a house that we thought was the one. We didn't want choose a house because we had to. We wanted to make sure it was the right one. In the end, we found the perfect house.
Q: How did The Grant Hickman Team help you work through those fears/concerns?
A: Grant's team helped us stay focused by reminding us what our top priorities were in a house.
Q: What was the best part of your home buying experience?
A: The best part of our home buying experience was the ability to call them anytime with questions/concerns. I wanted an agent who I could call anytime. The Grant Hickman Team was very receptive and responsive to all of our needs/wants. Also, Grant and his team have a great process in place and are very detailed oriented. They kept track of things so we didn't have to.
Q: Would you use The Grant Hickman Team to buy or sell a home in the future?
A: Yes. We would consider using the Grant Hickman Team again. We felt extremely comfortable with them. Toward the end, we felt like family.
