Dear Friends,


Just a quick note to let you know how we might be able to help you or anyone you feel comfortable introducing to us.


In 2001, we met Elgin & Dorothy Taylor and helped them buy a townhome in a 55+ retirement complex in Abbotsford.  Elgin and Dorothy were people with big hearts and were anything but retired!  One of the many thing Elgin and Dorothy were involved with was drilling water wells in Ghana Africa.  As Marlene and I got to know them better, their excitement rubbed off on us and we sponsored a number of wells & even went to Africa with them.


Recently we got a call from Elgin.  It was time to sell their townhome here in Abbotsford and move closer to their kids.  As Elgin put it, they were getting on in years – it was time.


Together, we reviewed all the current sales, as well as the townhomes that were for sale.  Then Elgin and Dorothy selected an asking price.


Through our marketing efforts we had 7 showings, but no offers.  I knew we were close to market value and the feedback from these showings confirmed that.  So to stop the buyers from just looking at it and get them making offers, we refined the test price by $5,000.


And that is all it took.  Two more showings, and Elgin and Dorothy’s townhome was sold.


Congratulations!!  Wishing you the very best in your new home!


Your friends in the business,


Larry & Marlene
