Thank you for the opportunity to make an offer on your lovely property.
I’m a first time home buyer, looking for a 1+ bedroom and 1+ bathroom property in Brooklyn / Long Island City area to settle down into with my wonderful girlfriend, Caroline. You and your agent have kindly given me the chance to get to know your home, and I’m grateful for that. Also, it was wonderful to meet your family on Saturday.
Along with the offer, I wanted to provide this short bio, so that you can get to know me a little bit better. Also, I hope my quick and decisive actions since first seeing the property on Thursday give you the confidence that the rest of our processes will be efficient.
As for my bio, I grew up in many places but am excited to live in New York. Originally born in Japan, I was raised in Los Angeles, CA, before moving to Pittsburgh for Carnegie Mellon University. During the college years, I got to spend a few months in Manhattan, loved it, and hoped to come live here after graduation. However, my career took me to Seattle, where I worked 5 years as an engineer at Amazon and a product manager at Starbucks. Luck would have it, I moved back to East Coast, actually Boston, for graduate school at Harvard. After that, I’ve been working as a travelling business consultant for Palantir, headquartered out of Midtown, and fell in love with Caroline who’s currently living in Williamsburg. So, that’s how I ended up back in New York, now looking to buy my first home and settle down here for the long run.
Outside of work, I enjoy cooking and outdoor adventures. I love how you’ve improved the kitchen and can’t wait to start cooking there (although it won’t be anything like your work). Also, I’m looking forward to exploring all the hiking trails around New York.
Aside from those hobbies, Caroline and I are clean, respectful, and financially conservative. In fact, outside of my fully paid off used car, I don’t own anything much and definitely don’t owe anyone. But I’m very excited for this new adventure of home ownership.
And I hope that adventure will start with this property. Thank you so much for considering my offer. Please do not hesitate to contact me and my broker for any questions.
