This week I had the opportunity to work with a great couple from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. We viewed a large number of resale properties and many builder communities (both single family and condos) in Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, and Gold Canyon. By Thursday morning my clients had narrowed down the search to either a resale in Gold Canyon, or a new build at Seville in Gilbert. We revisited Gold Canyon first then headed off to Gilbert. After almost five full days in the car my clients were physically and mentally exhausted. Enter Megan Smith – a community rep for Shea Homes at La Quintana at Seville in Gilbert.
Megan was excellent! She listened to my clients. She openly answered their questions without pushing for a sale. She took the time to work up a cost sheet including determining upgrade costs. There was no sales pitch. There was no push to upgrade. It made it so much easier for my clients to think about what they really wanted.
We returned to work with Megan at La Quintana on Friday. She patiently answered questions from my clients as well as from me. If she didn’t have the answer she told us she didn’t know but would be able to get the information by email within a few minutes ”“ and she did! My clients are happy and I am happy for them. Megan Smith gets it and I have to believe that Shea Homes gets it too.
Megan was great, and was extremely helpful ”“ by far the best builder’s rep I’ve worked with. If you are looking for a home in La Quintana, you should ask for her. But, as always, you really should ALSO have your own agent representing you if you are purchasing a new-build home!
