Ready to move on
Recently, John and Ali Albertson welcomed their first child, a boy, to their family. With the new addition and all his toys and gear, their home began to feel crowded, even though they loved the house and its convenient Clintonville location. The new parents began to browse through listings online and dream of more space. When they wanted to see a few properties in person, they knew who to call – Realtor Matthew Long of The Trinity Real Estate Group. “We chose to work with Matt to buy our first house because my sister recommended him,” says Ali. “We had such a great experience. He was patient with all our questions and he made us feel at ease through the whole process. There was no question about who we’d call when we started looking for our next house.”
Choosing a new home
Once they started looking, things moved quickly. Ali fell in love with a house in The Woods at Josephinum, and Matthew set up a second showing the very same day so John could see it, too. Shortly after, they went into contract – before their other house was even on the market! “It was really nerve-wracking to be in contract on a new house before we even put a for sale sign in our yard, but Matt was great,” Ali says. They worked with Matthew to ensure the home was ready to list, and accepted an offer shortly thereafter.
Timing is everything
Matthew worked hard to align the closings of the two homes to ensure the smoothest possible transition for the young family. They were able to close on both homes on the same day, and had possession of both houses for a full week. Ali was glad Matthew “made sure we had that extra time. It’s hard enough to move with a baby!” Now that the family has settled in to their new home, Ali and John are really enjoying all the extra space and they are having fun as they get to know the neighborhood.
