Case Study - The Duplex in Paso Robles

There are three things that every real estate agent needs to be successful – patience, persistence, and friendships.

After six years of contact, Lauri Strain is proud to share the details about this impressive, off-market sale in Paso Robles.

The History

In the life of a real estate agent, business relationships often transform into lifelong friendships. That’s one of the many reasons why Strain loves selling real estate.

When asked about this deal, Strain reflected, “I first contacted the original owner in 2016. After many conversations together, we became friends, and I was deeply saddened to learn of his passing in 2017.”

After the owner’s death, Lauri reached out to his brother, Paul, who inherited the property. She knew he would need help during this difficult time. Understandably, the decision to sell his late brother’s home weighed heavy on him. There was also the additional challenge of him living out of state.

Finally, in October of 2021, Paul called Lauri, ready to move forward with the sale.

The Challenge

The new owner had one requirement before selling. Strain could not list his property on the open market.

She rose to the challenge and quickly found a first-round buyer that offered over asking. However, after the property inspections, that buyer got cold feet and backed out.

Once again, Paul hesitated to move forward with the sale, but Lauri asked for one more chance to find the perfect buyer.

The Success

One of the benefits of being a Side partner is the incredible network of agents.

Through this community, Strain became friends with another Side partner, Susan. She had been looking for an investment opportunity in Paso Robles for quite some time.

After showing her the property, there was no doubt. This duplex was the investment opportunity Susan had been searching for.

Now Lauri is celebrating with a satisfied seller and a happy buyer! You can read Susan’s glowing testimonial here.

Soon enough, Susan will transform this duplex into a stunning vacation home with gorgeous eastward views of Paso Robles.

After six years, three friendships, and two buyers, Lauri and her team are proud to announce the off-market sale of 34 Hillcrest Dr, Paso Robles for $509,000.
