My husband and I began our house hunt with a different realtor and saw a lot of houses but we were feeling pressured by this other guy to hurry up and purchase! We were first time home buyers and didn’t want to be rushed. My husband’s co-worker recommended Pike and from the first day that we met him (at Scrumptious in the old north end) we knew he was the realtor for us. Pike showed us houses that matched the criteria we gave him and knew what our financial limitation were and didn’t try to push us to purchase more than we could handle. What I really loved about working with Pike is that he had so much information to share but did so in a way that was not overwhelming. He prompted us to evalutate what we were looking for in a home and was patient with us when we changed our minds 1,000 times! When we found a home and were ready to make an offer, Pike stayed with us throughout the whole process holding our hands so to say and explained each step so we were comfortable with the process. Buying a home is a big step for any person and Pike went above and beyone to ensure we understood the process and were happy with the outcome. We have lived in our house for a year now and we love it! We don’t plan on moving any time soon but will definitely contact Castle Porter Real Estate when we are ready!! Carolyn Desrochers
