I wanted to take the opportunity to highlight the AMAZING job done by Sheila Crew, Broker at Bend Premier Real Estate. Sheila was the listing agent for the purchase of a property here in Bend. An amazing property that had quite a few “hurdles” – both for selling it, as well as financing it. The property is a 40 acre manufactured home that included an unpermitted ADU, was completely off-grid powered entirely by solar panels, and access to the property included a BLM Access Permit that was no longer in the name of the seller – as the owners had passed away. To make it even more complicated, title to the property was held in an LLC that was held in trust as part of the estate!
Sheila worked exhaustingly for her clients, and ultimately for the eventual buyers of the property, as well. We would not have been able to finance this property without Sheila tackling every issue that came up – even down to the last day, when she went above and beyond to track down original copies of the death certificates for the previous owners who had passed away, as escrow had trouble obtaining them.
I have been a Loan Originator for over seven years, and I have never had the experience of working with a listing agent that has put so much effort, dedication, and hard work into her listing! I have been privileged to work with her on this transaction, and grateful for her resiliency and overcoming personality.
At Northwestern Home Loans, our motto is “You’re Worth It”. Our clients are worth it, our industry partners are worth it, and we are worth it. Sheila is a shining example of an agent that resonates with our core values – she showed all parties involved that she believed they are worth it.
I truly look forward to working with Sheila again – she sets the bar at a level that is unparalleled!
