 Sheltering In Place

     The McCullion's were concerned about selling during the initial outbreak of COVID-19 & the state of Georgia's order to shelter in place.     

     They interviewed four agents before selecting The Mary Ellen Vanaken Team. 

     The property was listed on March 1st and was presented with multiple offers that same day. The McCullion's home went under contract March 3rd and closed on April 2nd.

Couple Ready To Downsize

     The McCullion’s were referred by a neighbor and previous client of Mary Ellen Vanaken’s. They had built their home 20 years ago and put in place many upgrades including an inground pool. After having raised their children and seeing them off to college, the couple decided it was time to sell and downsize. 

     One of the challenges with downsizing was finding a donation center that would accept the offering of their large furniture pieces. With Georgia having a “shelter in place” order, many of the local Good Will stores were closed. Mary Ellen was able to locate the one store still open that would accept their donations. The next challenge was how to close during the COVID outbreak. With the assistance of Mary Ellen and the closing attorney, they were able to do so, but in a creative way. The attorney, the buyers, and the McCullion’s met in the parking garage of the attorney’s office. All stayed in their own cars and the attorney marked his car with a big bow so everyone could easily find him. The clients pulled up next to the attorney's car as he was then able to pass the closing documents between the cars. 

     The McCullion’s were thrilled with how the complete home selling process was conducted. Not only had their home gone under contract within hours of listing,  but their home had the highest sold price in the neighborhood thanks to Mary Ellen with The Mary Ellen Vanaken Team. 

Why The Mary Ellen Vanaken Team?
