First Time Homebuyers

“I was a single young woman buying my first home.  Carol and Adam found me exactly what I asked for on the perfect block of the perfect location.  I instantly started picturing how I would decorate and looked forward to entertaining my friends.  Unfortunately, we encountered a significant termite issues upon inspection.  Carol and Adam told me they couldn’t advise me to buy the house.  It was really hard for me emotionally to walk away from that house and their empathy, support and guidance allowed me to refocus on what I really needed.  They ultimately found a better property to call home which I loved even more.”



“As a recently divorced father, I was under time pressure to find a new house for myself and my children.  I was convinced I wanted to be in a certain area because I grew up there.  Carol really listened to my requirements and perhaps understood my real needs better than I did.  She went a few blocks beyond where I was looking and found me the perfect house with an eat-in-chef’s kitchen, first floor master and three other bedrooms.  I ended up loving my new location even more than where I was originally looking and the house has been perfect for us.”



“Purchasing your first home can be a very scary experience – with limitations of both time and budget. From beginning to closing, this was a great experience. With their knowledge of the market, enthusiasm for the process, and genuine concern that we find just the right home, Connections Realty’s representation  as our Buyer’s Agent was critical to our success. We always worked directly with Carol and Adam (were never shifted off to “assistants”). They were always available to assist us with any questions and walked us through each step of the way.  Everything went smoothly as they had promised and we would be proud to endorse and recommend them to anyone who is thinking of buying a home, especially first time home buyers.”

“We feel fortunate to have been put in touch with Connections Realty to serve as our Realtors. Their service to us met and exceeded our every expectation.  They made our house-hunting expeditions time- efficient and fun instead of stressful, they kept us aware of our options without pushing us beyond our limitations, and their negotiating skills were unparalleled and effective so that we were able to buy the perfect house at a great price. We felt like we had someone in our corner all the time. Their attention, consideration, and professional assistance made what could have been a harrowing experience a pleasant and enjoyable one. We deeply appreciate Connections Realty’s professionalism, friendliness, and ability and highly recommend to one and all.”

“As first time homebuyers, we relied heavily on the expertise of Carol and Adam. They made us feel like we were their top priority at all times. Responsive and thorough, we never had to question what was going on. I met Carol four years before I was in a position to buy a home and let me tell you, what a class act! She always kept me in the know about what was happening in the industry through the years and when the time was right for my husband and I to buy, I knew that I was dealing with a professional. There is no question that she is one of the best in her field and has the accolades to prove it. Not only did we have the pleasure of working with Carol, but we were also fortunate enough to haver Adam on our team. He spotted things that we needed to see that may have slipped by us without his keen eye. We trusted his opinion and we are so glad that we had a real expert by our side. He looks beyond the surface to what is really important. Thank you Carol and Adam for making our dream of owning a home come true. You treated us like family through the whole experience and we couldn’t have asked for more.”
