We are soooo excited to announce that our house has gone under contract! In fact, it went under contract in less than a week, before the open house. We pray that everything will continue to go smoothly through the closing in mid- June, and want to thank so many people for helping us prepare the house to be sold.
In particular, I’d like to thank (and review/endorse, I suppose), in no special order:
Matthew Maury, of Stuart and Maury realty, who I am quite certain didn’t believe for a second I would have the house ready by early April like I said I would, but gave me the benefit of the doubt (as well as the names of a number of the people below). Incredibly easy to reach (once answered my text message at almost midnight), and a fountain of information about the Wood Acres real estate market in particular. http://www.matthewmaury.com
Dan Millen Handyman Services, especially Steve, the project supervisor, and A.J., who was actually out here doing all the work, everything from touching up paint, switching out light switches, etc to a major overhaul of the upstairs hall bath earlier in the year. http://www.danmillenhandyman.com/
Arthur Haris, High Rise Building, for coming out at the last minute (on a Saturday morning!) to clean the windows — excellent job both cleaning and also leaving the worksite clean when he left. cell (301) 943-3620
Healthy Home Cleaning Systems, Dale. Carpet cleaning in the Bethesda, MD / Washington, DC metropolitan area. This guy can get out anything that can be gotten out of a carpet, and is easy to work with, even around young kids. He’s been cleaning our carpets for a few years now. (301) 980-9668
Rod Wilson, H&W Contracting/Painting. Rod has had his crews out to our house and my in-laws’ house on several occasions, including painting almost every room of our home about a year after we moved in. He came back to do some touch-up where we had messed up paint, and actually charged us less than his original estimate when he realized the job wouldn’t take as long as he thought. Oh yeah, and they do great work, too! Will be painting our entire new house as well. cell (703) 868-6763
George Baldwin, Baldwin Landscaping. Fabulously easy to work with, helped us get our yard cleaned up after the long winter…. http://www.baldwinlandscaping.com
Lissy Bower, Persimmon Tree Designs. For helping us, among other things, finally come up with an arrangement of our furniture in the fireplace room that we love so much it might be my current favorite room in my wonderful house! firstname.lastname@example.org
Butch Rall, Pride n Painting. Powerwashed and repainted the exterior of our house. Great crew! 301-565-5334.
Last, but certainly not least, my family and friends, for dealing with all the ups and downs of the process, and (more or less) patiently listeningand helping out where possible. My little children were the two best kids ever!
