My name is Jean Connell and I’m a 79-year-old widow of 25 years with no family nearby, but I have great neighbors and friends who help me out considerably. And for health reasons, and I think I was ready, it was time to move 23 kilometers from the country, into town so I could be near the hospital. I found my own apartment, and moved what I wanted and what I needed, and I called some local real estate, and they’ll sell the property, but what was I supposed to do with the rest of the stuff? I had a three bedroom, two bathroom, full basement, I think 1400 square foot house and I came to this little place. So I called Barry and he came up and he explained everything explicitly, and I said – you can have the whole thing. And that’s what we did.

And then when I was settled in here and ready to move down there, I had 3 girls come in and I went down there and said – I’ll leave it up to you, I might not be agreeable with that they were going to do but I just walked out and left them to do what they had to do because they’re more experienced than I am. I couldn’t have been happier. Somebody said – How do you manage it? And I said I’m sitting in my swivel rocker, with my feet up on my ottoman, knitting and watching TV, and they’re doing all the work. I would never in a million years have done that myself, in no way shape or form.

And then I met with Manson, we listed the house and it was sold in 17 days, closed two weeks later. And the day Manson came, there were 5 offers.Two were too low, one was mediocre and the other two were over my asking price. They didn’t even offer the asking price; they jumped right over which was quite nice. I’m quite happy with what I did, and my kids are happy as well. I’m happy they’re happy.
