A big help buying my first house! Anastasia always had time to answer questions and remind me when important events/documents needed review or action.
This was my first time buying a home, and if it wasn't for Anastasia's expertise and support I don't know if I would have finished the process. If it's your first rodeo, it can be extremely overwhelming learning about the process of buying a home. Anastasia was by my side every step of the way. ANY time I had a question about the process or what the next step was after the offer was accepted, Anastasia took time from her life to help me feel at ease. Some of the major things that step out to me along the way are as follows: FHA loans- As I mentioned, I was a first time home buying and I am a school teacher. Being a school teacher, funds are very limited. #America I wasn't even sure if I would be able to get a house. Anastasia helped me understand the FHA process and helped me focus on home I could get with FHA loans. When Anastasia didn't know an answer, she thoroughly researched until we both understood. Septic- Several great houses are on septic tanks and I was very skeptical to purchase a house with a septic tank. After working with Anastasia and Burney Septic Inspections (Shout out), I felt completely fine with the idea of being on septic and now have a better understanding about transitioning a house off of septic. Thank you Anastasia! Smoke in home/HVAC- The house I bought had previous tenants who smoked inside. Anastasia reached out to her peoples and I reached out to my peoples to find the right solution. She contacted HVAC companies for me to find out if it was doable to get the smell out. Two weeks later, my home smells smoke free. I am so grateful to have had a realtor who didn't see me and my first home as a simple transaction. Anastasia genuinely cares about her clients. Negotiating and Closing Cost- This was crazy to me. When you decide to purchase your first home, you feel all the things. Anastasia was adamant about offering the right price because of the stench of the house and the minor work that needed to be done. I won't get in to details, however she got me a ton towards closing which helped buy down my interest rate even more. Can we say Anastasia is pretty equivalent to the bomb dot com. Follow up- As I mentioned. I wasn't a transaction. Anastasia cared for my new home and myself like family. Even after closing and weeks after, she checked in on me to make sure everything was perfect for me. Thanks for being awesome Anastasia, I wholeheartedly recommend her as your realtor.
I contacted Anastasia Forrest because I needed to find a home for my inlaws that were moving to be close to us in St. Augustine. Mrs. Forrest listened to all of the housing preferences and was very responsive through the entire process. The end result was that she identified a home within minutes of the listing going live and we were the first and only showing of the home which was exactly what we were looking for! I highly recommend Anastasia Forrest.
Anastasia reached out to me the first day I began my journey of house hunting. I was not sure what I wanted and was very new to the home buying experience. Anastasia stuck with me through my poor communication at some points, and she guided me through the real estate process with patience and kindness. I ended up with a home I absolutely love and a new friend!
We recently used Anastasia to purchases a 2nd home in St. Augustine. Anastasia was wonderful to work with. She was extremely responsive and spent many hours previewing homes for us. She worked diligently to find homes that met our expectations and helped narrow down the choices. During the buying negotiations, Anastasia worked hard to get us the best price. What impressed us even more was her work after the offer was accepted. She helped with the inspections, follow-up from the inspections and made sure we got the important items covered by the seller. Anastasia was great in providing documentation for us as well. She also spent time with us outside of the sale, making us feel more like St. Augustine residents. She has been a wonderful and instrumental part of our new home purchase! We now consider her a friend. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area and resources. We highly recommend her and would definitely use her in the future.
A true superstar. Anastasia is great at attention to detail, organized, and communicating back with the customers. She was able to get a mutual client's townhouse under contract in 3 days!!!..... like I said... superstar!!!
Being from out of state and having chosen Ms. Forrest was a great plus for us. She was easy to talk to which made it easy for her to understand exactly what we were looking for in a home. Our time was valuable and she respected that making sure we saw the best of the best our money could purchase. She is very knowledgeable about the area and returned our phone calls and emails promptly. If you are looking for a great realtor I suggest you go straight to the top. Go with Anastasia Forrest!
Anastasia is the dream realtor everyone wants to have: knowledgeable, hard worker, always available, extremely responsive. My experience of working with her for a house search in the Saint Augustine area could not have been better. Anastasia came to extremes like making herself available to visit and inspect the houses I was interested to see in advance of my visit to the area, optimizing my time and making my life so much easier. I wished I had someone like her for all the other houses I bought. Strongly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a property, and I'm sure the experience would be the same with anyone looking to sell a property. Anastasia is just an amazing professional. And a wonderful person. Happy I found her.
Anastasia was a great fit for our first time home buying experience - she understood what we were looking for in a way that only someone of our age bracket could. She listened attentively to the feedback we gave on places in our "just looking" phase, and was willing to spring into action when we suddenly found the perfect place for us! She was in constant contact with us throughout the process and was extremely available for all kinds of inquiries. In the even I had a question she didn't have an immediate answer to, she took the time to research and give a thoughtful and in-depth response rather than a curt reply. I loved working with her, and she was such a joy to share the experience with!
Anastasia listed my townhome for sale we had an offer on the first day of it being listed. She took the time to write the listing and also pictures of my home were beautiful. Also, she is my agent in the home I am purchasing. Very responsive and goes the extra mile to research areas for prospective homes. She is awesome and I will refer to everyone I know.
