We contacted Alan thru our Agent in Kansas City who was helping us sell our home there. Our KC agent said that he had gotten Alan's name thru a previous client he had who had moved to Lawrence and was very satisfied by Alan's expertise and service.
We first met with Alan face to face and then, he knowing our home buying needs, set out to take us out to visit prospective homes.We went out about two times a week, and because of the Lawrence market could not find a home in our price range. Finally, on the last week (because our home was selling) we looked at townhomes. Alan found us one that fit our needs as being near retirement age, and one that the price had just been reduced. We purchased last spring (2012) and have been so happy in our new home and also in Lawrence, KS.
