Hello, Ms. Mitchener,
I don't think we've had the pleasure of meeting, but my name is Ryan Duane. My wife, Anna, and I recently purchased a home in Myers Park and had the good fortune of working with Anne Sauvain. As the owner and broker-in-charge of HM Properties, I wanted to share a brief note of recognition for Anne.
First, I am a very demanding client. I expect a lot, especially in a transaction with long-term financial implications. Anne vastly exceeded our high expectations. Here are just a few examples of how Anne made our search successful:
We live in Chicago and were not able to see properties in person. Anne setup FaceTime calls, Google Hangouts, and/or met with our in-town relatives to preview properties, often multiple times. She would answer our questions honestly, without being overly dismissive of our concerns or disparaging towards the property.
In several instances, I shared unconventional ideas on how we could reach an agreement with the sellers. Anne always listened to my ideas, was not afraid to share alternative points-of-view on the ramifications of my approach, and most importantly, was willing to ask difficult questions to help us achieve our goal.
We signed a contract on May 14th and had a firm closing date of June 11th. Anne's knowledge of the closing process and deep relationships with the requisite experts provided us with more than sufficient time to negotiate with the sellers and achieve our desired closing date. Further, we will not be relocating until next week, which has made coordinating repairs difficult. In my experience, it is rare for an agent to continue helping clients after a closing date; however, Anne has checked-in with us regularly and offered to check-in with contractors if/when we need some help.
This is not an exhaustive list, but in short, our relocation has been infinitely easier because of Anne's efforts. My parents are considering relocating to the Charlotte area in the next 12-18 months and have already contacted Anne to lead their search. Anna and I also look forward to continuing our relationship with Anne and HM Properties for years to come.Ryan & Anna D
Anne helped two of our daughters find homes. She was very professional and knowledgeable about the Charlotte market. She was also very detailed on scheduling inspections, etc... and an absolute delight to work with!Lisa & Crockett D
My best friend intriduced me to Anne several years ago and we became friends through her. We knew we could trust Anne throughout this major life event - buying a home - and she more than exceeded our expectations. My husband and I moved from Chicago to Charlotte and Anne made buying a home from afar so easy. She was so responsive, always available, knowledgeable, and really got to know us and what we valued. I can't imagine buying a home without her.Elizabeth & Brian U
Anne went above and beyond everything we could have wanted. She made our first home buying experience a complete joy!Patrick S
Anne was so knowledgeable and helpful. We were first time home buyers and has little idea on the process. She is a very hard worker and I knew she would be very dedicated in helping us find the perfect home.Chandler C
