Thanks to Roy’s diligence, I bought the first house I looked at and won with my first bid!
I was pre approved for a home loan from a lender and was trying to get in the Sacramento market while living in the Bay Area. This last winter we had the worst rains in 10 years and commuting from The Bay to Sacramento was a chore! I had “hired” a realtor from Rocklin, based on a recommendation from a friend. I didn’t know the area and soon realized the realtor was “too good” to come help me look in south Sacramento. Well, I went on Craigslist and looked at some homes listed there and found one within my price range that was represented by Roy Machado. I put my info in and hit the “submit” button and kept looking. I found another home a few blocks away that was represented by a different agent. Well, 10 minutes later my phone rang and Roy was speaking to me about the home I had originally inquired about – it had already been sold and was pending so that home was out of the question. I explained to him my frustration at my other realtor and that there was a very nice house in the neighborhood that I wanted to look at – the open house was an hour or so away. Roy offered to meet me at the house – hoping, of course, to become my buying agent.
