"This is an unsolicited, but incredibly deserved, letter for Fran Sevegney, acting as our Realtor over the past 10 months. We first called Fran last October about a listing he had in Negaunee Township and met him shortly thereafter at the showing. He was pleasant, unassuming, and able to show the house knowledgeably and efficiently. We put things in motion to purchase Fran's listing and knew we would also list our home with Fran when the time was right.
As it turned out, that particular house sold before we could get in a position to make our offer. Throughout the waiting and disappointment Fran acted as our council and continued to work with us and help us think about the sale of our current home, while providing us countless e-mails about new listings and properties that met our requirements.
We toured a total of 4 houses with Fran before finding another home we felt strongly enough about to pursue. This time we acted quickly, listing our home, and putting an offer on the new listing the same day. Fran worked very late into the evening with us, well past what we would have expected him too, and by the end of the day, our house was listed. We had multiple showings and then an offer in less than 48 hours. Throughout these two crazy days and the following week, Fran handled a heavy work load of questions and commitments as both our Seller's agent and Buyer's agent. He repeatedly gave helpful information and input.
Throughout the negotiations and inspections, Fran was confident and always seemed in control. As we struggled with worries, Fran stayed calm and made it seem as if he had all the time in the world to stay and help us. Although we knew Fran had a hundred other tasks for other clients, he never let on that he was working for anyone but us. This dedication to his clients and insight is a rare and wonderful quality which helped us feel a sense of control, even if none truly existed. Fran is a very skilled Realtor in all regards and we will highly recommend his services to any and all people looking to buy or sell a home.
In the end, we have moved to the home of our dream, while a younger couple is starting their dream of home ownership with the property we sold. Fran has given us both a great gift and should be recognized as a great asset to Re/Max 1st Realty."
