Via friend-of-a-friend, we connected with, and quickly came to enjoy working with Jason Kangal (Kangal Real Estate) as our agent. He’d lived all over the city, and been involved in real estate for some ridiculous length of time. He could be counted on to like or ridicule houses without reservation. He kept the stupid at bay, and made the process as fun, educational, and productive as possible.
We found a house. It had potential, a huge yard, plenty of parking, and a tree-lined neighborhood. Despite potential paperwork drama, it all moved through the bureaucracy very quickly. Last Friday, we closed on the house. Tomorrow comes the (hopefully) final move-in. I’m excited. I’m nervous. I’m ready.
