Extremely Pleased with The Poltrock Team

We decided to work with The Poltrock Team after a positive interaction with John. Throughout our real estate transaction, we were extremely pleased at how easy it was to communicate with the team members. Looking back, we enjoyed a “professional, fun, and overall awesome” real estate experience – and we would absolutely work with The Poltrock Team again.

Advantages of Choosing a Realtor with a Closing Coordinator

Simply put, real estate is a demanding business. No matter if you’re in Murphy, North Carolina or any other corner of the United States, having a Realtor who is effective in getting everything done for you, and done well, is virtually impossible for a single real estate agent. That is why The Poltrock Team at RE/MAX embraced the Team Model as opposed to inefficiently trying to do everything individually.

When you’re selling real estate, hiring a Team with a Closing Coordinator is a huge advantage. From contract to closing, our Closing Coordinator ensures you have the most seamless closing possible. There is an incredible amount of moving parts behind the scenes you may never even realize must happen to ensure your property closes. 

What can you expect from our Closing Coordinator?

  • Sandy Payne is our amazing Closing Coordinator.

    Personal Point of Contact to answer the many questions that arise.

  • Coordinates any and all inspections with all appropriate parties.
  • Helps execute any necessary repairs.
  • Ensures all necessary documents are executed and delivered to the closing attorney’s office for closing preparation.
  • Coordinates & Schedules closing appointments with the attorney’s office. Continually follows up and reminds all parties to ensure your closing is as timely as possible.
  • Coordinating, Managing, and responding to the constant communication between parties to ensure a smooth transaction
  • Assists in timing to change, order, and/or cancel utilities and insurance.
  • And many more unseen duties and tasks.

With a single agent, do you think your closing would be smooth and happy if they’re out showing, at an open house, on vacation, or simply not answering the phone? If you read many of the feedback responses, our closing coordinator is constantly referenced as one of the best parts of the buying and selling experience.

Having a closing Coordinator is invaluable as we move your property from For Sale, to Under Contract, and ultimately to CLOSED. While you may read this article and have an idea, you won’t understand how much of a strategic advantage it is for you until you experience it for yourself! The best part? It costs you nothing extra to have our whole Team working for you. Our fee structure is identical to that of a single real estate agent.

The experience was great!

The experience was great! John truly understood my goals and needs and helped me sell my cabin quick and for what I needed to sell it for. I was always informed and always felt like I was in control! Super experience!

My Experience with the team was Outstanding

John Poltrock is a Prince! This has been my best Home buying experience ever! I live a solid 13 hour drive away from Murphy and have lost several homes because I could not make it up there fast enough! When this house came on the market, I called John the first day on the market. I told him my story, knowing that people had setup appointments already, I panicked because “This Was My House” John assured me he would not accept any offers until I got up there, I gathered my dog. Filled up the car and headed out for Murphy within the hour. The rest is history, I now own my lovely mountain top home in Murphy. Team Poltrock, did step up to the plate and my experience with them was outstanding.

Odor Hog Stops Septic Gas Smell From Around My Home

My wife, Jessica, and I recently completed building a new home. It’s not the first we’ve built, but the first for us personally. Septic systems reign supreme in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Truth be told, they are excellent at disposing wastewater. While most professionals recommend annual to semi-annual maintenance and pump out, many homeowners choose not touch them until there is a problem. I know of endless scenarios where owners haven’t touched their system in a decade plus.

When we finished construction, we had a unique scenario I’ve never come across in over ten years of being a real estate agent. Brand new system, brand new home, septic system stench in the driveway. It was awful. There were days you could walk outside and it smelled as though the septic tank lid was open in front of you.

I researched to learn this is a fairly common issue. New septic systems vent, or breathe, from the vent stack in your home that normally vents through your roof. Essentially, it is a straight line to the septic tank itself. During low pressure systems in the atmosphere, it can push septic gasses down to where you live and play. Also, our home is built against the bank of a mountain. That, too, can cause downward air flow and cause those gasses to linger against your home.

We found a solution. After much research, we realized this is not uncommon at all. I’d never come across it in selling hundreds of homes. We found a company, Odor Hog, that produces a product that slips over your pipe vent on your roof and filters it using a replaceable carbon bag. It can provide 10 years of service, which was impressive. The reviews were spectacular, yet I skeptically ordered one. 

It works. Through a compression fitting requiring no tools, it slips on and immediately starts working. We’ve not smelled it again, not once, since we installed it. I highly recommend if you find yourself with this apparently common, but still unique, problem, you should buy one. Visit their website below and watch a miracle happen!

Ten Commandments of Buying a Home with A Loan in the NC Mountains

When you’re buying a home in the mountains of Western North Carolina, you may be purchasing it using a home loan. 60-70% of buyers here use a loan as a way to secure their home.

Need an amazing lender to buy your home? Check out our Gotta Guy List of Recommended Mortgage Brokers

I came across 10 Commandments to guide you from the time you secure your loan all the way to closing day. I wanted to share these because they’re true and we see these mistakes often. Here they are:

  1. Thou Shalt NOT make CASH deposits without first talking to your loan officer. If your payroll is not direct deposit, deposit entire check, then make a withdrawal. Any deposits not documented will be deleted from your available cash to close.
  2. Thou Shalt NOT change employment, become self-employed, or quit your existing job.
  3. Thou Shalt NOT buy a car, truck or van. If you do, you might have to live in it!
  4. Thou Shalt NOT use charge cards excessively or let your account fall behind on payments.
  5. Thou Shalt NOT spend money you have saved or allocated to closing.
  6. Thou Shalt NOT omit debts or liabilities on your mortgage loan application.
  7. Thou Shalt NOT buy furniture on credit.
  8. Thou Shalt NOT originate any new inquiries on your credit.
  9. Thou Shalt NOT change bank accounts.
  10. Thou Shalt NOT co-sign a loan for ANYONE.

Use these as a guide and your opportunity to buy your home greatly increases! We’ve literally seen people not be able to buy their house because they violated one of the above commandments during closing.
