San Francisco Real Estate: Escrow Out Loud
#36: Meet Micki (part 2 of 2)
This week on Escrow Out Loud, our San Francisco Real Estate podcast, we pick up where we left of last week for part 2 of Matt’s interview with Britton’s Mum Micki.
[00:20] Micki has had a lot of great real estate experiences over the years, but she does recall one occasion that was just awful. While trying to sell their house in Austin, Micki and her husband came across a snake oil salesman masquerading as a real estate agent. Having already singed a contract with a particular brokerage, the manager refused to let them out of their contract, but luckily, after voicing their complaints, they had a new agent assigned to them and she was brilliant – she managed to rebuild trust and humanized the whole experience. Is it a coincidence that she was previously a nurse?
[04:40] There are many different parts to a real estate process. Different agents can excel at different parts but the stand outs, they are good at most or all of it. It is also what makes Matt and Britton such a great team - they complement each other bringing their particular strength to the table.
[06:51] How has the real estate experience changed over the decades? We have come a long way in some ways. Did you know that not so long ago, the income of a female of a child-bearing age wasn’t taken into account for a mortgage application?
[08:37] Collecting rubber bands and porcelain animals! Britton had some interesting hobbies growing up, but what discouraged her from her childhood dream of becoming a veterinarian? To wrap it all up, Micki shares some personal stories about Britton.
Thank you for joining us for this week’s episode. We hope you enjoyed this interview and join us again next week for more San Francisco real estate stories!
