This house sold new in 2005 for $4.050 million. The new owner put a ton of money into it and in 2007 put it back up for sale at $5.450. He fell upon hard times and today, thanks to Fudrucker’s incredible perseverance and negotiating skills and my clients’ patience (I myself try to find these deals and then get the hell out of the way), we closed at $2.4 million. That’s a good deal.
Next up? I’m planning on spending a portion of the holiday weekend drafting a grievance against Burt Hoffman, Esq., a Stamford lawyer who claimed to be negotiating on behalf of the sellers? The bank? Himself, really, and who extracted a fee that, so far as I can read and understand applicable law, is entirely illegal. I guess we’ll see, but it will keep Burt busy over the summer, and that’s satisfaction enough. Well, almost enough.
