yup. that’s me old bean!
i’m a happy puppy.
my real estate lady just left. and this post is going to be an unabashed love letter to HER! i bought the lot and built wee blink bonnie with her dad’s realty 15 years ago. she has stayed in touch with me ever since. so she was the first person i wanted to call if i ever decided to sell. and i’m so glad i called HER! . . . SHARI MONTELONGO
i like saying her name. lol. it’s musical.
i have never dealt with a nicer ~ more efficient ~ more savvy ~ more professional yet accommodating person ~ in my entire life!
she made this process absolutely painless.
i called her on december 22. that’s 2 days before christmas eve for pete’s sake! that’s the day i called her to put wee blink bonnie for sale.
sorry for all the exclamation points. but this is an exclamation point story!
she called on me the next day after she had done a comparison study of houses in this neighborhood and presented me with three selling amounts. i chose the middle one. just like goldilocks.
mind you ~ this all took place when most people are simply taking care of their own christmas plans. she worked for me. i told her to put it on hold til after christmas. she multi-listed it and lo and behold ~ in 6 days the potential buyer came to see it. my realtor SHARI was going to schedule an open house shortly after the holiday.
we didn’t even have time nor the need to do that! it sold.
you pretty much know the rest of the story. an unscrupulous roofer man had totally botched my roof job so badly after the little tornado and hail storm we had a year ago that i had to put on a new roof or FHA would not accept it.
SHARI brought me a reputable accredited man who is taking care of not only the roof on this friday ~ but many other things that the very picky inspector wanted done. no earthshaking things but enough to be a nuisance. the windows that i loved will all be fixed.
i’m taking the ‘bouquet of sticks’ with me! my marine made them.
mind you i have NOT ONCE had to go to her. she has brought everything i need to sign to me. i have copies of everything. i have asked question after question and she has explained every last little detail. this has been utterly painless. and i have to tell you…
i was dreading it! but SHARI MONTELONGO with VAWTER REAL ESTATE INC. is a pure blessing. she made it easy. and quick!
i am shouting SHARI’s name from the rooftops. LOL! i am!
if you’re in my city of norman oklahoma ~ home of the famous sooner football team ~ or if you’re thinking of moving here ~ or if you know anyone who is ~ i am here to tell you ~ this lady is the one you want to call.
SHARI MONTELONGO AT VAWTER REAL ESTATE 405 360 5635.
you won’t be sorry. and i will be delighted that you do. you’ll be in good hands. she worked her little head off at a time that most people would have simply coasted ~ because of it being wintertime and ~ good grief! ~ even over the christmas holidays. she went above and beyond in every respect handling this sale. i am very happy. i’m a happy puppy.
well . . . my lovingly ranting letter is at an end.
i don’t know if rant is the best word here. i hope a rant can be positive too! anyway . . . mine is.
the closing is on the 25th.
i’m moving out totally on the 21st. but moving a few things myself on the 18th. well . . . “i shot a bear” as they say . . . no bragging here . . .
because the marine will be doing most of the lifting. LOL.
little wren house . . . here i come!
thanks again SHARI !!!

you are ALL just the dearest friends! you’ve made it not so scary and lots more FUN. xoxo.
