“Tammy Donnelly is not only an exceptional real estate professional but a new friend and neighbor! I hope this testimonial is one way to express our extreme gratitude…
Our family decided in July 2017 to move to St. John. Of course we had no idea what mother nature had in store that would significantly test these plans. Not only did our younger daughter endure hurricanes Irma & Maria with many of our island friends, but we survived hurricane Harvey in Houston as we attempted to sell our family home of 20 years. When I finally arrived on island, late September as commercial flights were once again allowed to land in St. Thomas, I was fortunate to have a place to stay. Our daughter’s apartment in Pastory was no longer livable so a dear friend offered us her cottage in Fish Bay for a few weeks. Post hurricanes the island looked so very different so we decided to just take it all in and not to be deterred. We volunteered to help friends clean homes and businesses and take it one day at a time. By early October (within a few weeks) on our morning walks we happened upon a house that met all our lot/house criteria… “we would like to see the ocean, hear the waves and feel the breeze”.
Working with Tammy Donnelly and Jennifer Doran, of 340 Real Estate, next steps were to make an offer and ultimately arrive at the final price. The seller’s agent was not very cooperative so we relied heavily on these two power women to help us through the process (very different from the stateside process). Tammy also has great connections to lenders if a mortgage is required. We were lender approved and in contract by end of October.
The story does not end here. We still did not have electricity in Estate Fish Bay and yet we closed on the house December 5th!
Finally and most appreciated, Tammy and Jenny made sure we had a place to stay on island for 7 weeks until we could move in… Ladies my family and I are forever in your debt. So delighted to call you friend, neighbor and agent/broker.”
