We had the honor of helping Sammi and Alex sell their home last year and since then they had been patiently searching for their replacement home. Upon exploring different areas of Torrance and touring a number of great candidates, they found a beautiful place that perfectly fits their family. Their home search was thorough and we evaluated different avenues such as major fixers, investment opportunities, new construction, but they ultimately ended up with a newer built, move in ready home.
Going into the process we knew Sammi and Alex were smart, business-minded people with strong core family values. However, we soon realized that helping them sell their home was only giving us a glimpse into those admirable traits. It was through this second phase of their real estate journey that we gained a deeper understanding of how strategic they are when it comes to planning, as well as looking at all the numbers from an investment perspective. They had a clear understanding of the importance of calculating their home value with the potential upgrades they had planned, while keeping in mind their future plans for resale. They took everything into consideration – even including the opinions of their personal Feng Shui master!
Working together and helping them look at the different angles of real estate purchasing was a lot of fun. It is obvious that their business skills are due to their successes in running their own family business. We are left inspired by their hard work and dedication to not only their work, but also to their family. Their home search was never about just the two of them; they always took great consideration into their children’s future, as well as the rest of their extended family of siblings and parents. Hosting family parties is a high priority and they had a clear vision for the importance of being able to provide a home for everyone to enjoy.
Thank you Sammi and Alex for the opportunity to work together again and for showing us how hard work can transcend into a bigger contribution to the ones you love.
