Sharing an unusual real estate experience:
Over the past 5 months I have had the fortunate opportunity to work with Sandy Pastoor.
I say fortunate because over this period she exhibited a sense of caring and friendship I never expected to receive
from a personal realtor.
My situation was absolutely unordinary in every sense.
I purchased a home in the Fort Myers area in May. During the home search process Sandy always made herself
available to suit my busy schedule. she made me feel like she had no other clients and that I was her sole priority.
She guided me through the entire process with a sense of calmness and clarity. I have bought a few properties
over the years and this was by far my best buying experience. The difference between this purchase experience
and the others was absolutely Sandy.
While I had never experienced a home purchase process as pleasant as the one I had with Sandy, the true measure
of my appreciation and her personal attention came 3 months later in August.
put everything together and had the home on the market within 24 hours. She even made the deadline to get the
home advertised in the paper (next day) by tracking down the home's prior realtor who was in Canada to get a
picture for the ad. WOW!!!!
Over the next few weeks she kept me very informed and promoted the home as I believe the best any realtor
could. She did such a good job. She found me a buyer for the home within a month during the slow off season.
When buying a home and selling it 3 months later you expect to lose the equity. Not the case for me though and I
again owe the thanks and gratitude to Sandy for this as well. I got an offer on the home for $27K more than I
purchased it. We were concerned about the comps impacting the appraisal causing me to lose the largest offer.
Sandy put together a case to support the increased value of the house. She did such a great job on this the home
actually appraised for $3K more than my officer. Again WOW!!!!
This has been a very rough and challenging time for me in my life. I never expected my personal realtor to play
such a large part in my road back to recovery. I will always think of Sandy and what she did for me. I know I will
never again get the experience I did with her as she is one of a kind. She is a true friend and now a close member
of my family.
Thank you Sandy.
I appreciate you in so many ways,
