Feedback from our previous clients
We still came out on top! Woohoo! – The circumstances surrounding my home's sale were pretty unique. Although my situation wouldn't be the case with everyone; this story is just proof of Walter's and his team's professionalism, perseverance, experience, and wonderful attitude... My uncle had retired early due to health reasons and moved back to his home country. Before he moved, he gave me Power of Attorney and left me in charge of the sale of his property. We had anticipated – although we were doing a 'Short Sale' – that the closing would take place within 90 days as we already had a buyer. Man, were we wrong. Personal Note: Banks can be evil. But I digress… As it was, the Banks involved threw a wrench in our program. Not only did they reject the buyer's offers – which were all within the home's valuation – but they repeatedly demanded the same paperwork over and over again. Paperwork, mind you, that Walter had submitted multiple times again and again – even though we knew we had just submitted them weeks earlier. To make matters worse, the Banks dragged the process on for more than a year! I had come to think the banks were purposely trying to sabotage the sale. By the way, did I mention Banks can be evil? Anyway, this is where Walter's experience and professionalism really shined. My uncle and I had become greatly discouraged… thinking the sale would never happen; but Walter reassured us that all would turn out fine. But having Walter's negotiating skills on our side proved to be our greatest asset when a series of mishaps happened to the house. One of them was that it flooded when a pipe burst because of the cold. When I saw the damage, I was convinced there was no way the buyer would close on the sale. Again, Walter rose to the occasion and wouldn't let the sale fall through by continuing to persistently negotiate on our behalf. In the end, this story indeed has a happy ending. The banks acquiesced, the deal finally closed; and everyone was happy. My uncle, most of all, was very relieved. There were many times the whole thing could have gone straight to heck – but it didn't – thanks to Walter. I'm confident that if Walter could sell my uncle's house – even after everything we went through – then he most certainly can sell yours.

Walter was extremely helpful in getting my mom's home sold. We were referred to Walter from a friend who worked with him to sell her house. Walter stayed in touch with us until we were ready to put our house on the market which was right before Covid happened. Walter stayed in touch the entire time working through with a buyer that finally closed on the sale. He was very persistent to make sure that we would actually close on the sale. I would totally recommend working with Walter if you need to sell your house!
The Sarmiento Team is by far the best real estate group in the metro area. They are honest, sincere and an absolute pleasure to deal with. They sold my home when everyone else gave me the wrong advice. Walter put his mind to solving my unique problem and came up with a winning plan. I was surprised and appreciative how their stratargy fell into place. Wow! Sign with them, then sit back and relax. They will guide you to success! Thanks again, Walter and the entire Team.
