“Betz Tyler guided us through a wild, unpredictable real estate market. We could afford a place in the most active segment, around $250,000, and we all knew that getting a place would require patience and perseverance, and it did take us several months to get into contract. However, getting into contract was the easy part. The seller’s representatives did several things that threatened to quash the deal. Betz kept the conversations on track. The result: we are delighted with our new home in Temelec. I expect a realtor to offer market experience, competency with the sales process, and excellent organizational skills. Betz has all these. She returned calls promptly and worked with us as if we were buying a five-million-dollar McMansion. But I consider us fortunate that we worked with Betz for these reasons:
–She has excellent negotiation skills and knows how to communicate in a friendly, yet impartial way. She listened to our goals, ideas, and concerns, and did her best to accommodate them, but did not hesitate to offer her perspective when she believed it could help us come to better decisions. But most importantly, she went out of her way to transcend the upsets and miscommunications to “herd the cats” and bring the deal to a successful close.
–She gathered a team that works the same way she does: with integrity and follow through. Betz does not “micromanage” the team, but acts as a central hub to facilitate communications among everyone so we were all on the same page. This team stabilized the process, allowing Betz to focus on dealing with the seller issues that turned the deal sideways. Eric Taggesell at Princeton Capital, and Alice Noel and Kristiina Weiss at Fidelity Title, all did an outstanding job and never gave us any cause for concern. Betz also recommended a roof inspection by Leticia at ARS Roofing and a home inspection by Saul Fuentes at AmeriSpec, and they both did a thorough job. These inspections made a huge difference in our negotiations with the seller.
Would I recommend Betz? You bet! A friend referred us to Betz, and we’ll do the same wholeheartedly.” ~ G. Ottenson
“Betz Tyler is a treasure! She gets to know her clients’ tastes and preferences extremely quickly and well, and searches out homes that respond to those preferences. When she first saw the house that we would buy, her enthusiasm had us on a plane immediately, the seller’s agent cancelled an open house based on the likelihood that this would be THE house for us, and we immediately fell in love with the house. During a 3-day whirlwind visit, we signed a contract, had our inspection, selected new flooring, and applied for a mortgage, all done with providers recommended (and scheduled) by Betz. She really sticks with her clients. We live in Virginia, and much has to be done by phone or e-mail. Betz is out following up with contractors, recommending specific repairs/improvements to make and finding us contractors to do the work. We know she is always there for us. What a wonderful lady!!” ~ L.Wallace
