As a buyer, my Husband and I worked with Joey earlier this year. I must say, his work ethic is amazing. He met with us on New Years eve day- a Saturday nonetheless – for coffee. The whole process from coffee at Kawha to closing literally took 18 days. We were amazed and utterly grateful for the attentiveness he showed us and how he wasted zero time getting the ball rolling. A few hours after our meeting, in which he really listened and got to know what we needed and wanted in a home – he had us signed up for the MLS listings and we all went to work! 2 days later, we gave Joey a list of almost 15 houses we wanted to view and the next day he had all of the viewings scheduled over the course of 2 days. After that, we narrowed it down to 4 and again, our 2nd viewings were scheduled almost immediately. That same evening, we put an offer in on a house with Joey’s counsel and the negotiating began. He kept us informed at every corner and even when they hadn’t responded, he was following up and letting us know what the status was before I could even follow up with him and to be honest, patience is not my strongest asset! We always felt that he was on our side throughout the whole process – looking out for our best interests – whether that be the neighborhood, the price or the condition of the house.
Once the price was negotiated and accepted, the contract came to us within minutes and the home inspection was scheduled for days later. After the house inspection was done, we asked Joey if there was any reason we couldn’t move the closing date sooner. By that afternoon, he had contacted the agent and the closing was then scheduled for less than a week later. Even when we had a delay in transferring our money from overseas – his knowledge about the closing procedures kept me calm and everything went according to plan. We signed the final papers the following Wednesday in Brandon and he gave us the keys as soon as the money cleared (about an hour after we signed!!) We moved into our house in January and couldn’t be happier.
Joey Romanik is a true asset to your selling or buying experience. He is professional, knowledgeable and personable. He really listens and understands the needs of his clients – a true rarity. His expertise in the whole process and houses generally was impressive and appreciated. He made this experience – although a whirlwind – really fun and enjoyable!! A true 5 STAR REALTOR!
