Feedback from Valparaiso Indiana Home Buyer

Feedback from Valparaiso Indiana Home Buyer who chose F.C.Tucker 1st Team Real Estate to represent them


Since 1999, we have been blessed to represent thousands of wonderful home buyers and sellers throughout Northwest Indiana.

Recently, we followed up after the sale of a Valparaiso, Indiana Home in which we represented the buyers as their REALTOR in the transaction.

We received this email yesterday with permission to share with potential clients who may be looking to interview a Real Estate Broker to represent them in the purchase or sale of property:


 We have a friend in the real estate business that we were planning on using.  We made a few phone calls to her over a few days that went unanswered.  

We knew Grace and Jeff through our associations in the community with the work that we do.  

I decided to reach out to Grace and Jeff for their help in viewing a property.  They were quick responding and very accommodating. 

Through our discussions, it was clear that through their frank comments, they were not looking to move just ANY property, but one that was suitable for us. 

I really felt like they were working for us.  Jeff and Grace were great about communicating and informed us of likely time tables and any changes throughout the course. 

I will undoubtedly use them again in the future.
