A big congrats and many thanks to Janice Chua and Ian Chan on selling their Rivermark home.
This was the cleanest original Rivermark home we have ever seen. It showed like a new build inside and was evident that both of them lived very light. In the property preparation phase of this property all we had to do was thoroughly clean, stage, and replace the cooktop as the ignitors ceased working.
Then we went on market Mother's Day weekend which was a week earlier than originally scheduled. While we experienced excited buyers and a flood of visitors we opted to hold the property on the market for an additional week and a second weekend of open homes as many buyers expressed frustration of them needing to choose their mothers or their potential new house. We felt allowing all potential buyers the opportunity to tour the home was in everyone's best interest.
As the second open house weekend wrapped up we set an offer date that following Wednesday. After reviewing all offers we selected a very clean, above asking offer and our clients were able to transition to the next chapter of their lives in Singapore.
This sale meant a lot to our team. For one, Janice was one of METIS' earliest supporters and one of the very few who knew about METIS before we publicly launched. Where as start ups of yesteryear (HP, Intel, Apple, Google, etc.) were often associated with garages, many of today's start ups got their start in coffee shops. Janice and Ian owned Bitter+Sweet Cafe in Cupertino where we often met and worked on METIS, it was practically a second office for us.
Thus, when Janice inquired about the sale of her property, we were honored.
Many Thanks Janice & Ian! We hope to see you in Singapore!
