For those who will purchase or sell a home in the next few years or who have friends in the same situation, I want to share a personal experience. Goska Baker represented me as the Buyer’s agent in a purchase of a home and met or exceeded every expectation. My search started early in 2014 while I watched the “investors bubble” begin to deflate and then began in earnest early in 2015. She was patient and responsive to my many questions and even willing to look at and not laugh too much at amateur spreadsheets I used to put some perspective to a truly weird Valley market. She was clearly superior to any Seller’s agent we encountered and even found and corrected numerous mistakes made in the MLS listings by these agents on the two homes (of many visited in our “road trips”) that I seriously considered. Beyond doing a major part (and correctly) of the Seller’s agents work, she also found and corrected errors on the part of the transaction lender especially in the area of HOA disclosure and transfer fees and reserve funds. She even organized a 5:30am call to the Pennsylvania location of the underwriter for one HOA insurance policy so the Title company would have correct documents for closing. Then she landed on the lender w/ both feet to ensure the wire transfer was completed on a Friday before a holiday and working w/ the Title company the same day predicted w/in ten minutes when the county would be able to record the sale so I could begin the dreaded move of my stuff!! Just an outstanding effort, and I recommend her services highly.
I would recommend Goska to anyone that is looking for a new home. The process of home buying can be intimidating and can go wrong fast but with Goska it was a good experience. She is, as well as the people she works with are very good at communication. I was able to talk to Goska and the people she recommended anytime that I needed to. We were able to close in just over 3 weeks time so that was amazingly fast. She knew the area well and she is very aware of her own limits which I think sets her apart from other realtors. Negotiation can be difficult and in the end, the final deal was extremely close to what we had initially offered so it was very well negotiated. That was impressive and that speaks volumes to both her negotiation skills as well as her local knowledge of the market.
We had the pleasure of working with Malgorzata to sell our home in Ahwatukee. Malgorzata is very devoted to her job, highly professional and punctual. We particularly enjoyed her quick response and attention to our requests. We would highly recommend Malgorzata because of all the positive experience we had with her while selling our home.
Purchasing my 1st home seemed daunting, but Goska made it a great experience. She was very professional, responsive, knowledgeable, patient, and fun to interact with. When I had finally settled on a home I wanted, the process took a few months due circumstances beyond our control; despite this, she was always on top of things, 100% committed to doing everything she can to close on the home as fast as possible. I would recommend her to anyone, and I myself would not hesitate to contact her for my future home selling/buying needs.
We purchased our first home 2014 and Goska Baker was amazing to work with! Being that it was our first experience purchasing a home we didn't know what to expect. She is very knowledgeable and was helpful through out the whole process. She explained things every step of the way. Hope to work together again in the future
Goska was a huge help in getting me transitioned to Phoenix after a cross country move. She was not only knowledgeable but a joy to work with. I highly recommend her!
Goska is amazing and moved really fast. We shopped around for a couple of weeks, we found the house we fell in love on a Saturday and we're signing contracts by Monday. She's extremely knowledgeable, we will definitely be using her services if we're ever in the market for a new home.
Goska helped me with the short sale of a rental property a few years ago. She clearly knew the ins and outs of the process, explained what to expect so there were no surprises, managed the multiple offers we received, and handled the mountain of paperwork associated with these kinds of transactions. She simplified what otherwise would have been a very stressful experience. I've already told her I plan to use her whenever I sell my house!
