John & Anita Gilliland

Purchasing a home is a traumatic experience, since it usually involves a change of lifestyle. Recently, Steve of the Homes by Homer Team had the opportunity to assist John and Anita Gilliland in the search for a new home. Tired of renting, the Gilliland¿s were looking for the perfect home, the last they ever planned to purchase. It had to be right for them in every sense of the word: the right size, with the right features and at the right price! ¿After purchasing 6 homes over my lifetime, this was the best experience of all!¿ said John. ¿Steve did a fantastic job for us and kept us informed at each stage of the purchase. He led us through every step and had everything planned smoothly, from start to finish.¿ Steve set about a rigorous search process to find just what the Gilliland¿s were looking for and after two weeks, the perfect home was found for them in the Block House Creek area of Leander. John is a school Science teacher at Round Rock Christian Academy and Anita offers home care to clients in the Round Rock area. The Leander area offered a good alternative for commute distances and connections with their family. Block House Creek area also has great amenities and common areas which they look forward to enjoying together and with other family members and friends. ¿We were able to find over 1700 square feet of home for John and Anita, and it had been completely refurbished with new paint and flooring,¿ said Steve. ¿They loved the home from the moment they saw it and the price was very affordable for them. In fact, we negotiated almost 15% off of the original list price for them. These are the kind of happy clients that we strive for in our home searches at Homes by Homer!¿ Anita loves the floor plan of their new home. ¿It has the perfect flow for the way we live ¿ and the kitchen is just perfect for the way we cook. I also love the large covered patio ¿ This summer it will be a real treat for barbecues and outings in the yard¿ says Anita. Steve worked every phase of the purchase process to ensure that everything lead to a smooth closing for the client. ¿We connected the Gilliland¿s with our team mortgage broker, Stevan Shipp. He was able to get them qualified in a very short time and made the whole mortgage process very rapid and smooth,¿ said Steve. Steve also coordinated with the seller¿s agent and the title company to ensure that all necessary tasks were completed in order and on time to facilitate a rapid closing and move-in for the client. The entire deal was completed in just over 4 weeks from the first showing. ¿The team concept is very important to us in this business ¿ we work with professionals on our team who can get the job done ¿ and on time, every time,¿ said Steve.
