The Cook Family

“The Cross-Country Move”

Kendra was about to start making dinner for her family when her phone buzzed. She felt her pulse quicken. Was this the phone call she’d been waiting for all week? A glance at the screen showed that it was! She answered the call and heard the news that would completely change the direction of her life, and her family’s too. She got the job! Her dream job at JPL in Pasadena! And they needed her to start in one week!

The only problem was she lived 1,000 miles away in Montana. Fortunately, the Cook family doesn’t let anything slow them down on their passionate, adventurous journey through life. Kendra and her husband, Justin, packed up their whole life, including 2 young daughters, their nanny, 3 dogs, and 2 cats. A few days later the Cooks were on a road trip all the way from Montana to Los Angeles.

Once they arrived, their home search began in earnest. Kendra contacted our team to help her learn about the different neighborhoods around town so her family could find the right home ASAP. Although the Cooks are extremely tough and resilient (Kendra and Justin were both officers in the U.S. Air Force), with five people and five pets in the family they didn’t want to live in an extended stay hotel for one second longer than necessary!

As always, our team dove into this project with gusto and a strong sense of urgency. Within a month we had the Cooks in escrow on a home they absolutely adored. Here’s what they had to say about their experience:

“The team at Lin Realty Group is absolutely incredible! We probably looked at 100 houses in Pasadena and the surrounding area over a one-month period. They met with us evenings, over lunch hours, and on weekends to accommodate our work schedule. Eva was extremely knowledgeable and professional and her team helped make sure that we were always taken care of. When we fell in love with a beautiful, character-filled Craftsman home in Pasadena’s Bungalow Heaven, Eva fought incredibly hard to help us win it. Her negotiation skills would impress even the most seasoned home buyer! We didn’t know this level of service and care even existed in real estate.”
