Messy cleanup was a surprise

On Aug. 24, I bought a smaller home — possession date was Nov. 21.

Come moving day, and my real estate agent, Grant Wildeman from Royal Lepage, was as shocked as I was to find the place left in a mess by the previous owner.

Grant went way beyond the call of duty to help me.

His wife, Shelly came over to help clean the place — it was filthy dirty. I could never have moved in there without the help of Grant, Shelly, and my friends, Pat, Nesta and Casey. My heartfelt thanks to you all.

My question is — how can this kind of thing be avoided? I was very fortunate that Grant was so helpful, and his wife, and my friends were available to help.

What happens to those who move here, and don’t know anyone? How do you know when you purchase a home, that it will be left in a clean condition, and no garbage left behind?
