Just Sold: 729 Katydid Ct.

I recently sold a beautiful home at 729 Katydid Ct.! I’m so happy for my Coast Guard clients. One was stationed in Alameda and the other out towards Bodega Bay, so in 2014, they decided to buy in Martinez. A year ago, they were transfered to Virginia, rented the house out, but after one year decided to sell.

Virginia was much cheaper and they got a huge house with acreage. Serendipitously, I was able to connect with them on a recent trip to visit my son who lives in Norfolk, VA. We had a wonderful lunch at a rooftop restaurant and they have jokingly told their colleagues that their real estate agent came all the way from CA to meet with them!

All in all, we had five offers. It was listed at $620,000 and sold for $645,000. They were ecstatic with the results and as you tell by the pictures, staging helps tremendously especially with showing restrictions because of COVID-19. Video also helps buyers get a full perspective before deciding to book an appointment.

Just Sold! 707 Chives, Walnut Creek!

A big congratulations to Jamie, Ross, and family for closing on 707 Chives in Walnut Creek. We had spoken at the beginning of 2019 and they entertained moving out of state. Well, another baby came and they finally decided they wanted to move to Walnut Creek; they literally went to two homes and fell in love with Chives. Their timing was impeccable. Our market slowed down the last quarter and this beautiful home had been sitting on the market for 69 days, so they bought it for what the original owner paid two years ago!

The sellers had only lived in the house for 18 months and were transferred to New York. They had done many upgrades, finished the patio with stamped concrete and installed an electric car charging outlet in the garage. They are loving their home with tons of storage and living space with a two-car garage. The kids love the playground and being able to walk over to Tice Valley Park and even Rosie (the dog!) is enjoying her new digs!
