I would not now own a house without Shannon Harrington.

First of all, I would not now own a house without Shannon Harrington. I had become discouraged with housing prices, and being an artist, thought my income would never suffice to get a loan. My requirements in a house were rather unique too, as I was looking for a home with space for a workshop/art studio, livable but in need of fixing up, where I could apply my contracting skills to add value to it. So it was only after Shannon assured me that there were such properties in my income range that I began to take a serious look at purchasing a house.

Shannon really understood my unique requirements for a house. She found me the perfect one and helped me put it under contract, though there were others who put in bids on it. Because of her persistence, that property is the house I now own. Honestly, I never thought I’d own a house in Charlottesville, and in addition to closing with over $50K in equity on the property, I am now paying less in mortgage payments than I was in rent for an apartment half the size.

I cannot emphasize enough that I wouldn’t have even begun seriously looking without her gentle motivation, and couldn’t have scored the incredible deal I did without her negotiating skills, persistence and instincts.
