Although our budget was limited, Danni and Curt always made us feel like a top priority. They were helpful from the moment we contacted them about our interest in purchasing a home. Both of us were first time home buyers and really appreciated their informative and patient demeanor. A friend and co-worker suggest we contact Danni about finding a home in Ann Arbor. She had already helped him purchase a home, and he was confident we would be able to find one of our own in no time. The first time we went to see some houses, Danni made us feel comfortable and spoke honestly about the homes. It was clear that she wanted to find the right house for us, not just a house with the right price. We went out to see more homes with Danni, and she introduced us to her husband Curt. He was able to further educate us about purchasing a home. Multiple times, he drove us around in the pouring rain; rather than complaining about the weather, he explained the benefit of seeing where a house might take on water. We put in several offers on homes we saw with Curt, and never felt rushed or coaxed. At the end of the fall, we put one last offer in even though it was drastically under asking price. The offer was declined, but Danni and Curt helped us stay positive. After a couple of months, the house was still on the market and had lowered its listing price. Danni encouraged us to resubmit our offer and hope for the best. Low and behold, the seller was now willing to accept our offer. Closing came and went swiftly and smoothly. The Smail Team was with us every step of the way, and they continued to help us whenever asked. We highly recommend Danny and Curt…and Partners Real Estate, pinnacles of professionalism and care.
