“Lisa and I began looking for a gulf coast beach property three years ago. We always had a few factors that prevented us from finding the perfect property at the perfect price. First, as out-of-state buyers our search was often limited to holidays, long weekends, and business trips. Second, although we were familiar w/ the gulf coast, we certainly were not experts when it came to waterfront versus water view; seasonal rental versus long term rental; and the associated tax and insurance benefits and consequences of each. Just as we were going to postpone our search, we came across Zach’s blog and decided to reach out. Zach immediately erased all of the factors that previously prevented us from purchasing. He met us on Memorial Day weekend and took the time to show us the community street by street. Over the next month we met several of the small business owners, attended a birthday party for a city councilman, and even experienced a local BBQ contest. Zach has a strong commitment to the community along with a dynamic understanding of the area, the economic climate and a wonderful ability to communicate whether face-to-face or digitally–through Facetime, Skype, text, or e-mail. Six weeks from our initial handshake w/ Zach our family was swimming, fishing and enjoying the sun at our beautiful summer home. Without reservation, we recommend Zach Childs and his 98 Real Estate Group. Said more simply, Zach has the only other key to our house (Here’s hoping my mother in-law doesn’t read this).”
