Nathan and Michelle Pera: Anderson Township
What are your occupations, where do you work?
Nathan is a civil engineer and works in Blue Ash.
Michelle is a stay-at-home mother.
Where did you live before you purchased your current home with our team?
Michelle: We owned a home in Overland Park, KS. However, Michelle grew up in Cincinnati and wanted to return to be closer to her family. Overland Park is a city located close to Kansas City, MO, so Nathan, Elias and Isaac miss the Royals and Chiefs. Michelle and her extended family are helping them to develop a love for the Reds and Bengals though.
What was your home BUYING journey like?
Michelle: Our home buying journey was a little different because we were located out of town. We had a tight time-line because we needed to sell our house in Overland Park, KS and move to Cincinnati in order for Nathan to start his new position. We looked at over 15 houses during one three-day weekend in town. Jenny did a great job educating us about the Cincinnati housing market and trying to match our desires to neighborhoods she thought met them. We found our house during that trip and did not see it again until closing day!
What was your experience like working with The Amy B Sells Team, and Jenny to BUY?
Michelle: We were referred to the Amy B Sells Team through Michelle’s friend. After talking to Amy, she got us in touch with Jenny, her buyers agent. Jenny was great! She knew we were on a tight timeline and were located out of town. She took calls from us late at night when it worked in our schedule. She showed us almost every available house in our target locations in Cincinnati over a three-day period when we were in town. She helped us learn about the Cincinnati housing market and helped us get a great deal on our house. She was great to work with and made a stressful situation a little easier.
What do you love about the community where you recently purchased your home?
Michelle: Anderson Twp.has many conveniences such as close shopping and some good family restaurants. It is also located fairly close to highways and downtown Cincinnati. We have nice neighbors, good schools and great parks for our children.
What is your favorite thing about your new home?
Michelle: We back to a wooded area with a creek. We have a very peaceful view from the back of our house over-looking the wooded area, and it is a great place to explore with our boys.
What is your favorite thing to do in Cincinnati or your neighborhood?
Michelle: Michelle grew up in Cincinnati but had not lived here in over sixteen years. Nathan and the boys had never lived here. Thus, we like to spend time getting acquainted with different areas of the city. We especially love exploring new parks and the hiking and outdoor activities Cincinnati has to offer.
Where is your kids favorite place to eat near your new home?
Michelle: Our children love to eat at Mio’s. The restaurant is a nice neighborhood place close to our house.
What is your favorite Vacation Destination?
Michelle: We love to visit new places and explore. However, one favorite place for us to go as a family is to the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. By moving to Cincinnati, we are much further from them than we used to be. We were able to go there this summer for our family vacation though. It is a great place to spend some time when the hot, humid summer weather hits Cincinnati!
