Sold February 2019
Co-op – Brighton: $70,000
Robert Hoeft, Seller
I first contacted Kathy Young in late November of 2018 when I decided to sell a property I owned with my sister in Brighton Michigan. My sister had passed away in August of 2017. I had been working contract jobs in Florida off and on for several years then a job in Florida turned into permanent position. The property my sister and I owned was a co-op unit – like a condo but with a different ownership structure. There were several unique requirements related to the sale of a co-op unit that I was completely ignorant of. Fortunately for me Kathy was well versed in the sale of this type of property. Working in Florida made it a challenge for prepping the unit for sale as I was not there in person to coordinate the work of the contractors I used to get the unit in top condition. Kathy located qualified reputable contractors for me and worked as my local point of contact in coordinating/supervising the work. All the work performed was very professionally done with one exception. The company that was hired to deep-clean the kitchen and bath areas of the home did substandard work. Kathy stopped in to look at the work that was done and immediately contacted me to let me know she was unsatisfied with the job done. At that time I was coming home to Michigan for the Christmas holiday and to finalize the efforts to get the property on the market. I was shocked when I arrived home to have Kathy stop in at my unit with her own cleaning supplies to redo the kitchen and bath areas. When she had finished scrubbing everything looked great – talk about above and beyond the call of duty. Kathy was a pleasure to work with during the entire process of prepping and selling my co-op unit and I will gladly check back with her when I return to Michigan to look for a summer home when I retire in a couple of years. Thanks Kathy – you really stand by your motto of loving HOMEwork!”
Response from Kathy Young
Bob, what a lovely review! Thank you for taking the time and for such a generous evaluation. I enjoyed the partnership we shared as we prepared the unit for the home sales market, especially under such circumstances. It was a real honor to work with a client that exercised such a commitment for ensuring a good outcome, and a good outcome it was! Looking forward to serving you and yours in the future.
