I have been telling this story for the past twenty-five years. If it weren’t for Johnine, my sister and I would never have owned this house on Capitol Hill. A full price offer got in ahead of us and was accepted by the seller, but Johnine urged us to put in a back-up offer, which we did. She then stayed in touch with the selling agent letting her/him know how much we loved the house and the neighborhood, and that we were pre-approved for a loan. Because of that, when the first buyers needed a last minute extension to arrange their financing, the seller declined to grant it and sold the house to us instead. I am ever grateful.
