Jenn Wilder and Neal Weichel are the best agents in Santa Clarita and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough. My wife and I were first time home buyers and didn’t really know anything about the home buying process. We met with several agents before a friend recommended Jenn and Neal. As soon as we spoke with Jenn and Neal, our worries were put at ease. They are extremely professional and truly care about serving their clients and providing the best possible experience. They are also no pressure agents and understand that doing right by their clients builds relationships and ultimately grows their business.
This being our first home buying experience, we needed a ton of guidance on all sorts of things (lender, inspector, homeowners insurance, gardener, pool cleaners, plumber, etc.). Jenn was able to help on all fronts. Before we started searching for our dream house, we listed out our must-haves and our nice-to-haves. We were not in a rush to buy, but hoped to get into a house in time for our kids to start the new school year in the new school district.
After hearing everything we wanted, Jenn assured us that she would be able to find something that checked all of our boxes. She initially sent us about 5 listings and then we started doing walk-throughs at different houses. In each house, she was quick to point out certain things that I would not have noticed or expected, such as added homeowners insurance costs for having a hill back up to the property. Through the different showings, Jenn was able to dial in exactly what we were looking for.
Although we weren’t in a rush to purchase, Jenn found us the perfect house within a month of looking. That is when her true expertise kicked in. We discussed where we needed to be price-wise to secure the purchase and after a few rounds of negotiation were able to get a fantastic deal. Jenn negotiated a rent back agreement with the sellers that allowed us to lock in the purchase immediately and give the sellers the freedom to buy their future property on a non-contingent basis. The seller used a discount brokerage firm that was very unresponsive and Jenn and Neil stayed on top of them from start to finish. Had we hired a less experienced agent, this deal would have probably fallen through.
We have now been in our home for a few months and love everything about this house. Even after the sale, Jenn and Neil continue to stay in touch. I could not have been more impressed with Jenn and Neil and recommend them to anyone I know looking for a realtor in Santa Clarita.
