Joaquin Gonzalez and Dawn Winters

We had been casually looking at homes for quite a while, browsing open houses from time to time but not working with a realtor. We wanted to get a sense of what we were looking for in a home and price without feeling the pressure to buy as we were first time home buyers and very nervous. Being in our late 20’s we were frequently ignored by realtors at the open houses we went to as they always seemed to assist the other couples rather than us. It became frustrating as we began to feel judged despite our successes and felt we would never find someone trusting enough to work with. In December 2012, we went to yet another open house expecting to be ignored however, it was quite the opposite! It was Kerrilynn’s open house and we were graciously greeted by her and her husband, Chris. They were super friendly and very interested in what we were looking for in a home. Kerrilynn knew that we weren’t interested in purchasing a home at that time but were just browsing to get a sense of what we were looking for in the near future. This never deferred Kerrilynn from wanting to help us. She guided us through the entire open house that day and really listened to what we were looking for in a home. I never got that superficial or auto-piloted vibe from her as we had gotten with other realtors. She was very genuine and we could tell that she truly cared. Gradually, Kerrilynn began showing us different properties and making us feel more and more comfortable with the process of buying while never pressuring us. She understood we were in a difficult family situation and were just biding our time for the exact perfect house to strike on while in no hurry. Kerrilynn was always accessible to us morning, noon, or night with our constant questions and uncertainties. I really enjoyed the fact that Kerrilynn was into text messages and emails as that was the easiest way for us to communicate. Kerrilynn truly got to know us and what we were looking for in a home. She never tried to just show us properties just to sell us a home. Kerrilynn is a professional and a mother who understands the true meaning of a home and doesn’t treat it as just a sale. We always felt like she had our best interest at heart. Now it is November 2013, and we are nearing the closing of our 1st home! Kerrilynn has been assisting us for nearly a year and has been so patient with us and an absolute pleasure to work  with. Not only do we feel like we had an outstanding realtor, but gained a trusting friend in this whole experience! I would highly recommend Kerrilynn as she is honest and truly has your best interest at heart.
