We first reached out to Nate in the Fall of 2011 and indicated that we were thinking of making a move to Champaign County from out-of-state sometime in the next year or so. Nate immediately set us up to receive automated emails about the housing market in this area and for several months we just educated ourselves on the market and waited for “the right time”. In late spring we decided the time had come for this move and so we made two trips to the area to look at homes. Nate devoted entire days on weekends to help us with our search and he patiently answered our numerous questions and concerns about different areas. We were very impressed with his level of professionalism and his knowledge of the different areas. Once we made the decision on the home we wanted, Nate assisted us with a complicated negotiation process involving multiple sellers. Once the contract was finalized, he updated us regularly on the process and steps required to close on a property in this county. In addition, Nate also provided local contacts for various services we may want to use after we moved to the area and he started to help us to connect with our new community and neighbors. Nate was very responsive to us during the entire process. He really helped to make a long-distance move much easier, and we will definitely recommend his services to anyone looking to make a move to, or within, the central Illinois area.
