Dave was our agent when we bought our house. We were looking for a unique property that we could fix up to be our forever home. This was not an easy task and we were in no rush. After a couple months of no properties that matched our criteria and around 7 months in, Dave called to tell us he found the perfect property. He was right but it was also perfect for 4 other buyers. We were nervous of losing the house after so much effort and told him that we wanted to offer above the asking price. Dave advised against this and laid out a plan of attack (he asked that I don’t share his strategies here). Long story short, we beat out the other 4 offers.
