Gretchen had been renting the same place for 10 years and decided it was time for her to buy a home. We went out a few times and saw all the houses on the market and after seeing this one, she knew. It had all the things she wanted, hardwoods, a yard for her doggies and a kitchen she could cook in. Crazily enough, in this market, we were competing with 2 other offers but we had the winning bid. I love independent woman who take life by the horns and Gretchen is this person.
