I wanted to take a moment to say THANK YOU to Robyn Wallace for her fantastic work on the RATM Team! Robyn received a glowing review today and I am thankful for Robyn's dedicated work.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, Robyn!

We so appreciate your kind recognition, Kim!

"I wanted to let you know about Robyn’s above-and-beyond attention last night.

I had a radon addendum due at 9pm yesterday and didn’t get the radon reading until very late in the day. It was again some time until I reached Mr. Buyer to discuss the results. He needed to contact Mrs. Buyer and that took even more time since they are living in separate parts of the country for now. I had an evening appointment that I didn’t want to have to reschedule so Robyn said she would handle creating the addendum, getting it signed by the Buyers, and getting it delivered by 9pm.

My people took a while to locate and to sign and so by the time it came back into Authentisign with Buyer initials, it was 8:59. Robyn emailed it immediately and the time stamp on the email shows it was delivered at 9:00pm exactly.

Hat’s off to Robyn for a great effort and for getting the job done on time with excellence. Thank you once again to RATM for helping me so well in the job of serving my clients.

#Pending #UnderContract #BrowningHomesGroup #epRealtyProud

Have you heard about the local Fairfax County case where an incomplete HOA Resale Package was delivered and the buyer was unable to claim their EMD after voiding the contract based on receiving the incomplete package? Even if documents are missing, the 3 day right to void will expire unless an addendum is written up to extend and signed/agreed upon by all parties. The HOA Statute says that the only right a buyer enjoys upon receipt of this incomplete package is to do one of two things: (1) Cancel the Contract; or (2) Ask the HOA for an update on the materials BUT the 3 day review period STILL applies.

Be sure to keep your buyer clients protected by staying up to date with these laws/rulings and know that RATM is tracking the deadlines for you!

The weekend is just about here! But first, CLOSINGS!

CONGRATS on another great week!

Who else is THRILLED that spring is finally here?!


Just like that...we've made it to FRIYAY!

Our whole team has been busy all week with new contracts, listings, and closings -- the spring market is HERE!
