During my recent home purchase, I really enjoyed worked with Chris. He is knowledgeable of the area and the tricky market were exactly what I needed. He educated me up front about the kinds of decisions and strategies we could make to create a great offer in a competitive market while staying within my budget. He explained the ins and outs of the differing methods and a series of steps we could take so that I could understand how to best move forward and get what I wanted with the least amount of stress (emotional and financial) possible. To start, he interviewed me to prioritize my needs/desires and set me up with a personalized app for my searches, so I wouldn’t miss anything coming on the market (vs the slower, less reliable Zillow). With each property I was interested in- he was available and able to get us in within 24-48 hours of the listing to be sure we had priority... some times the same day. While looking at properties, given his extensive experience in design & renovation, he was quick to point out the difference between things that would be an easy update vs things that would be costly investments without much return in the long run. He helped me keep a keen eye on surroundings of a home, privacy (or not) from neighbors, traffic patterns, etc. Also, informed me of how I would be able/not able to adapt certain things of any given home to meet my needs based on HOA’s/ codes for any given property. Once we found the ideal property- he had me scheduled for the first available day of showing and we were able to get the first offer in line of 4. Due to that, the sellers worked with us to find an offer that would work for all of us over the other competitive bids. Because I had an extended timeline for possession, there were at least 3 occasions after our accepted offer in which I wanted to see the property- each time Chris graciously coordinated, showed me the property again, and helped me measure/gather information as I was planning/shopping prior to moving date... so home could feel like home more quickly. I highly Recommend working with Chris for your next selling/purchasing experience. If I had a property to sell this time around, I would have done so through him as well. Not only did I find the home of my dreams in the neighborhood I’ve been dreaming of for years... but I had fun along the way.
I was in a position of buying a home from across the country during COVID and working with Chris couldn’t have been easier. Chris was recommended by a new colleague, so I knew I’d be in good hands. Chris was flexible in working with my schedule and (virtually) getting me into homes. He was always willing to do video/Zoom walkthroughs and made sure to keep my time zone in mind, even if it was late on the east coast. I asked him to point out everything he could see that could be an issue with the house, and he was super thorough and knowledgeable. In this competitive market, Chris went above and beyond and was able to get me under contract for my favorite house that I had seen. We were able to get a showing the first day my home was listed and were under contract by the evening. He was a wonderful advisor during the whole process, making sure I understood the differences between my (former) state and Indiana and repairs/maintenance I’d have to consider that I didn’t have to before. He was able to help me go through the inspection report and recommend what should be addressed right away and what could wait, and recommended contractors in the area. As essentially a first-time home buyer, this was incredibly valuable advice. Closing was smooth, even as I was in another state, and Chris was also willing to help me out between closing and when I moved to Bloomington. I’d highly recommend working with Chris!
Rebekah was incredibly helpful, professional, communicative, and personable when I found myself needing to sell my home swiftly when an opportunity presented itself that I couldn't pass up. She spent over an hour talking with me about my home and responded perfectly to the sentiments I had about it (I'd spent a year renovating to get it just how I wanted it). The photos and description she listed were perfect and in less than 24 hours we had a wonderful offer on the table. The whole process felt seamless from the initial listing to the closing. Thank you Rebekah and Flying Fish!
For the past few months, my wife and I have really enjoyed working with Chris and Rebekah from the Flying Fish. They were so quick to respond anytime we contacted them and answered any and all questions we had during the home buying process. They were also very patient with us as we searched for just the right home. We just closed on a property we're flipping 5 days ago, all thanks to the Flying Fish! Thanks guys!
We enjoyed excellent service related to the discovery and purchase of our home in Bloomington. Flying Fish provided top quality professional service every step of the way. I would not hesitate to use them again.
