I was thinking about moving to the Tampa Bay area from the Florida Keys last summer. I had many reasons but the main one was the area was affordable. I started a search on the internet and found a couple of properties that interested me. I emailed the realtors for these properties and Ruth Lorenzen was quick to reply. Through emails she got a feel of what we were looking for and set up a property page for me with properties as they came on the market. This page was a wonderful tool where I could rate them according to my interest. I chose quite a few to look at and made my reservations to fly up to the area.
Ruth picked me up at the airport on a Thursday morning and we set out on my home search. We visited over 30 properties in 3 days, driving over 350 miles all through Pinellas County. Ruth picked me up at my hotel each morning and brought me home too. She also found a mortgage broker for me. When I flew home on Sunday I had found a new home and been pre-qualified for mortgage. It was a fun and exciting process thanks to Ruth. She has extensive knowledge of the area and her market and helped me find a place that fills all our needs.
We closed last week and are now settling into our new home. We are both very pleased with our home, the area and the personal service that Ruth gave us. I feel fortunate that I found Ruth on the web and that she was such a professional and friendly person. I would recommend her to anyone is contemplating a move to the Tampa Bay area.
