A Realtor like no other...

   I had a dream.  Other real estate agents turned up their eyes at me and dismissed my dream.  My dream was a passion I had held from age 12.  Now at 57, I had the thought that I could combine my lifelong passion with the cold hard pragmatism of real estate investing.  My dream made financial sense to me, but not to most real estate agents I talked to.  I guess that they thought it was too much hassle to deal with a guy like me- an idealist with an impractical dream that would be a lot of work for them.  Christine Hannah made my dream come true.  She did what other agents said was Impossible- to find an investment property close to my home in San Francisco that would let me do what I had been dreaming  about for a long time.  I am forever in her debt for this service, but more importantly, I thank her for believing in me and taking the time to hear what I was saying and finding the right property for me- the quitesssential problem client.  The guy who wants what is impossible.  Well, Christine found me the impossible and made my dream come true. 
    I teach public school music in San Francisco and was able to buy one of the 3 houses there in 2003 under 300K.  My initial purchase, plus the 10+ years of sweat equity that I accumulated resulted in a large equity position.  In the mean time, I lived like a church mouse and didn't buy anything that wasn't necessary.  In 2015, I was in a position to buy an investment property.  I secured a HELOC on my more than doubled equity in SF and went shopping.  
    I should tell you that my passion is Greyhound buses.  I own 2 buses, one a seated restoration and the other one a motorhome conversion. These vehicles are normally a "go away" in any neighborhood. Christine  found me a a property 32 miles from my home. An acre of land with a 4 bedroom house for 245K. The property had been on the market for 104 days and fallen through on previous offers.  Christine was able to negotiate a difficult transaction and close the deal. 
    I am now in a positive equity position with the property that meets my unique needs.  The facts bear out that Christine Hannah will go the distance and get you what you want to have in California real estate.
Sincerely, Peter Govorchin
