" She was constantly urging us to do the house inspection as soon as possible, however when the house inspector came, there were four people and a lot of furniture still in the house. When we go to see a house, especially when we do the house inspection, nobody wants the owner still live inside, because the buyer could not easily see the details which he needs to know. As a real estate agent, she certainly knew that those would largely affect the accuracy of house inspection. We couldn't say that she did this on purpose, but she should inform of this risk in advance or she should not hiding the risk, right? If we know that every time the warranty company comes, they would charge $100 and couldn't completely fix the issues, we would strongly demand to replace any issue and carefully check every corner,. However we have singed the contract and paid the money, it doesn't help __this is the lesson we bought. "

"In a word EXELLENT! My friends and family told me that my first home purchase was going to be a bumpy ride, so I was told to "get ready." From my first phone call to the final signature I have to say that I have NO idea why my parent's closing was so troublesome. The staff at the Virginia Beach office did such an amazing job! All our questions were answered and I knew exactly what to expect for my closing. Patricia, Jarett and Joe took such wonderful care of my wife and I and I am so happy we closed with the team at Shaffer Title, Virginia Beach! When we decide to move up to a bigger house, we are going back to them! Thank you for being so wonderful!!! Phil Virginia Beach, VA"
