To whom it may concern,
Jeff Houtkooper is a gem! I can’t imagine working with a more dedicated and knowledgeable person, I do not confine this to his role as realtor. I would imagine that Jeff would be successful at any position that he might take on.
In his role as a realtor he is dedicated to his clients and makes sure that his listings get well covered. He keeps clients informed using the phone, internet and email. His reports are timely and informative. He makes sure that properties that he is listing are presentable and will, in fact, take on the responsibility of arranging for repairs when needed. He visits his listing with regularity to make sure they are presentable. He has even been known to do cleaning and vacuuming on his own!
But let’s talk about my listing. As a result of a family illness the house I owned in Elgin needed to be sold. I live in the Atlanta area due to business reasons. I moved my listing to Jeff when there was little activity by the original listing agent. Jeff went in and basically told me the place was a disaster! He quickly alerted me and suggested a cleaning crew that he had previous dealings with. He kept in touch with me during the “straightening out” process. After the place was cleaned up he distributed several hundred fliers to the surrounding area. He held multiple open houses, all this in a really down market.
An offer finally materialized and this is when his ability to “pull things together” really shined. His interface with me and the perspective buyers was outstanding. When it was discovered that several items in the property needed fixing before the closing he personally arranged for workmen to inspect and repair the items. At the same time he was a calming influence to me because I was 700 miles away and concerned that something might go wrong with the closing.
And while I have never met Jeff I feel that he is more than my real estate agent, he has become a friend!
