​ We have been living in our home for 5 years but what we face right after buying this house is unforgettable experience. My husband (John) and I was putting all our efforts to find a spacious home within our budget. Everyday John had a routine to come home, take me to visit professional real estate agent in University Park TX. Agent further used to take us at various locations to show homes. For all the day and night we had just one thing in mind ‘get a perfect home'. 

We spent about 5 months to inspect number of homes still failed to find a home that could fulfil our insatiable demands. May be it took time because we did not need affordable custom home sales services rather we required a fully constructed home. This long trail gave us tiredness and these visits of many homes become monotonous for us. We even decided to change our real estate agent. However, one day he showed a home which gave me a feel of “home sweet home.” I told my husband to finalize this one. We were standing in living room when my son (Harry) was gazing at the roof and he said, “Mom, the place is a bit spooky”. All of us laughed and I picked him up to kiss his cheek. I couldn't think that I neglected my son's opinion about home. We used to think that he is kid, how would he know anything about homes? We are the ones to take the decision. 

We trusted our wits and abilities of top real estate agent whom we hired. It took about another month to finalize the matters with Real Estate Company and purchase of home. It was start of March when we shifted in our new home and my son was still unhappy in this place. He used to stare the ceilings and we continuously ignored it. At the end of March there was thunder storm and it finally revealed that the roofing of our new home was damaged at many places. It needed quick roof repairing. It was time when we observed the large cracks in our ceiling. Nothing could help but pro roof repair services. After real estate agent, we were in search of roofing service provider. We needed expert roof repairer because it was start of rainy season in Texas and we did not want more damage to our newly bought property. 

If only I had listened to my son's concern we could avoid that unpleasant situation. Thenceforth, I never ignored his words. I take into account his opinion and make him part of our decisions. We have spent many happy moments in this home but that experience is still fresh in my memory.Sometimes Harry's words reverberate in my mind, “place is a bit spooky.” We thought that we have been deceived and we spent our money at wrong place. However, pro roofing services saved our home from further damage.
