Al and Judy Bishop

In June 2013, my husband and I decided to put the house we have lived in for thirty-five years on the market. We contacted Alexandra and Fran Christman, Realtors with Keller Williams. Under their guidance and following their professional suggestions, we began a remodel. We never dreamed that Realtors would spend so much time with us to determine the type of changes we should make, nor did we think they would actually pitch in and help with renovation. Alexandra guided us through the selection of materials, and Fran acquired samples for us to consider. They were so knowledgeable about people that could achieve the results we desired. Part of our huge chore was to finish the remodel by July 27, the date of our 50th anniversary and our huge celebration party! With their help, we did it! Alexandra and Fran came to help us celebrate, even though Fran had to customize some switch plates as guests were arriving! With Alexandra’s attention to market trends and comparable houses in our area, we agreed on an appropriate price. Alexandra was invaluable in helping us stage the house for optimal showing. She looked at what we had, helped us eliminate clutter, and tastefully staged each room so that even a quick glance revealed the purpose of each room. She even accepted the fact that our resident potbellied pig would remain onsite during showings. We believe the pig was actually an enhancement!

From such thoughtful suggestions as closet rod covers, to placement of art work, both Alexandra and Fran were indispensable to us. They met regularly with my husband and me to walk us through comparable properties, produce appropriate flyers, and prepare for showings. Because of their professionalism and our total trust in them; we actually had a contract in sixteen days! Their support didn’t end there. Fran and Alexandra guided us through the closing, the move, and culmination of thirty five years of living in one house. What a wonderful experience the entire transaction has been under their direction! We are truly grateful to both Fran and Alexandra, and we want to be sure their efforts are recognized.
