My wife and I wanted to retire to the NC Piedmont region from NJ. We spent a couple summer vacations here and then in August 2017 committed to finding a property. Alia was our agent. We had a pretty good idea of what we wanted and we identified around 20 properties online throughout the Piedmont Triad area. Alia lined up tours and worked with us all month. We were able to look at every property we identified. When we found a property, she handled inspections and all the paperwork. When it came time to make a bid, she advised us to make an offer lower than I expected. She know the market much better than us. It saved us several thousand dollars alone just for that advice. We were able to go from scratch to scheduling the final closing in a month’s time, which was critical for us since we could not stay in the area much longer. It’s now been 18 months since we moved in. The house and property are lovely, just what we were looking for. We’re very pleased with the whole transaction and we credit Alia for making it possible.
