When Ryan and Taylor decided it was time to buy their first home, the two knew exactly what they were looking for - a single family home, with a yard fit for their furry friend, in South Austin.
“I had my heart was set on a traditional, family-style home with a big enough yard for our dog, Kayda. We wanted a house that needed just enough TLC to make it our own, located in South Austin. We spend a ton of time exploring the city and South Austin has the best vibe, activities and most importantly... the best food. We’re still trying to figure out why anyone would want to live North of the river,” says Taylor. Ryan and Taylor were more familiar with the market than your average first-time homebuyers. Ryan spent years watching the housing market and Taylor worked in marketing in Real Estate, where she met Gray and Air. And although she worked with and knew tons of real estate agents, she chose to work with Gray.
“We knew it was meant for us. Sure enough, we finally landed it. There was something magical about the turn of events that led us to this home.”
“There are 13,000+ real estate agents to choose from in Austin, Texas… that is a ton of options. There is only one Gray Adkins.” Working with Gray was pretty much the perfect client experience. We learned the importance of having an informed, dedicated real estate agent that is willing and experienced enough to guide you in the right direction each step of the process. Not to mention, he and Air are simply fun people to be around so there was never a dull moment. And we made lifelong friends with them in the end,” says Taylor.
For Ryan and Taylor, the home they fell in love with took them on an emotional rollercoaster, but in the end it was meant to be.
“When we walked into the first “home of our dreams,” we knew it was the one. We made an offer and lost out. The buyers backed out so we made another offer and lost again. Just when we decided to stop spinning our wheels, it came back on the market for the third time. We knew it was meant for us. Sure enough, we finally landed it. There was something magical about the turn of events that led us to this home.” Ryan and Taylor’s home buying experience is a perfect example of what Gray always tells his clients – it will all work out for the best. If you lose out on an offer, then something better will come along. Or in this case, the same house will come along again.
Taylor’s advice to first-time homebuyers, “Do you homework and follow your instincts. Neither will ever lead you astray.”
