Father signed the contract with Michaelee Jenkins to sell his house in early May 2017. The house was prepared to list in early July. An offer was made in late August and closing set for October 27th which pushed to the 30th and sold for $6500 more than the original asking price. That’s a very impressive timeline and speaks highly of all the effort and expertise Michaelee put into making this sale happen. Even more impressive is how Michaelee handled all the changes that took place during the sale. Father passed away in June which brought probate and a lawyer into the mix. During the time of house preparation, one of the heirs thought to buy the house so Michaelee wrote that option into the contract and explained the differences of dong that. Given time, this was decided not to do and reversed. There was a City Sewer upgrade needed and an inspection request for a heating contractor to sign off on the furnace. Michaelee was familiar with the upgrade which is happening throughout Glencoe and recommended a contractor she has a history with. We accepted the recommendation and Michaelee handled the logistics of getting this done before the closing. There was 1 minor detail that resulted in the City not signing off on the upgrade and Michaelee orchestrated the completion with the contractor, the City inspector and the Closing Company, which bumped the closing to the 30th. The contractor gave a generous discount in his billing for this delay which speaks highly of him and his reputation. Michaelee also recommended a heating contractor for the furnace, who would not sign off on it due to a leaking valve and its age. I checked with my contractor who recently replaced my furnace and he also would not stand behind the safety of a furnace of that age. Between conversations with the contractor and Michaelee the furnace was installed the following week well before the closing. She also prepared us for closing so that when we got there, there were no surprises. This whole process had many bumps in the road which I did not mention and Michaelee just smoothed them out and took care of them. Our experience with the Jenkins team leaves us with a high level of confidence that their every effort is in our best interest. THANK YOU!!!!! So much Michaelee and Jenkins Team for your outstanding, exceptional work!
