One of the joys of being a realtor is getting to work with wonderful clients! Assisting our former neighbor Amy Baird with sale of her beautiful home in Carisbrooke was one of those great partnerships. At each step of the process, from pre-listing preparations to the closing, she was always willing to consider our suggestions. While it's critical to list your home with an experienced, knowledgeable agent who has your best interests at heart, you can't have a successful transaction without the support and cooperation of the seller. Kudos to Amy for being great to work with! Her efforts helped us generate multiple offers and sell ($605,000) for more than asking price! 

Be prepared to fall in love with this spectacular custom built home in the popular…
