Testimonials

When Every Agent we contacted had given up on the market and almost lost hope, we found you, what a blessing!

"The fact that you and your team sold our listing in less than 2 weeks - in what is currently being reported as the toughest real estate market ever - is just unbelievable.  Then, you assisted us in what could have been a very challenging proposition - purchasing a foreclosure with multiple offers and we won.  In both cases the process was simply smooth and as professional as anything we've every seen.  You are such as real estate expert, we can't believe we almost went with another agent who was so negative and down on the market.  Who knows what would have happened with that.  You are a true blessing to us.


Jennifer & Jeremy Schamber

 

As a Financial Planner I take referrals very seriously - You have exceeded my every expectation!

"As a long-time professional financial planner I'm often solicited for referrals of my clients and family by realtors.  I have had mixed results in the past.  I can tell you that the last two listing referrals have solidified my belief that you are the best agent in the market - bar none.  In fact this is exactly what I tell clients - I even keep a set of your cards on my table in the lobby of my office.  To sell each listing referral in two weeks or less - with extremely happy clients that I referred to you - it absolutely stunning, especially in this challenging market"


Joe High, 4th Quarter Financial

 

After interviewing other top agents as well…We definitely Made the Right Choice!

"Vern and I wanted to thank you for your awesome service in the sale of our home. As you know, we interviewed quite a few agents including every 'top agent' in the local market.

Although it was a very competitive and tough decision choosing between you and Anne from the Keller Williams office, we feel like we definitely made the right choice! Your team and marketing plan are right on target for us.

As active rehabbers and members of the local community, we have had the opportunity to work and interact with many agents over the years. We have never had the pleasure of dealing with a more professional, responsive and talented team. We can't thank you enough for your assistance in selling our home. While many agents doubted the value, your analysis and market expertise allowed us to sell the home much quicker than the market average and for a record value per square foot for our area.

Please free to have any potential customers who want to check references talk with us. We will definitely sing your praises – you guys are awesome and we couldn't recommend you highly enough."


Vern & Marie Koehlinger

 

Out of all the homes we've bought or sold…We've never met agents like you!

"WOW! How can we thank you enough for your awesome assistance with our recent transaction in relocating from Atlanta. We have never met a more consummate and professional real estate agent. Everyone on your team has been just as professional as you and absolutely a pleasure to deal with.

Thank you again for your fiduciary advice and counsel in handling our recent difficult negotiations. You never gave up and handled things like a true fiduciary. We couldn't ask for a better outcome.

We will definitely recommend you to any and all of our friends who need your services."

Ed & Carla Timm

 

We're so glad you guys are market experts!

"We are so excited to have been referred to you and your team. You accurately provided excellent data and assisted us in pricing our home for sale. The best part was receiving two offers in the first couple of weeks one of which we ended up negotiating with your assistance at the exact price you advised us that we'd receive. Many agents we interviewed provided little or no market expertise and further had very limited marketing plans. We choose you and your team to market our home based on your market expertise and our confidence (well deserved) in your abilities.

Well, your team adeptly assisted us in negotiating a complicated inspection which could have been a nightmare but was a breeze.

We're all closed now and packed for our move to North Carolina thanks to your awesome job!

We couldn't be happier. We'll definitely send you any business from our friends and family in the area.

Roger Meyer

 

You Guys Rock!

"What a difference! As a professional investor and rehabber who has completed many many projects and worked with numerous agents over the years. You have now sold my two most recent projects when agents (including the #1 agent/team at Coldwell Banker) had previously failed.

Your professionalism and market expertise are second to none. I couldn't be happier with my decision to change agents and go with your team. I'm sure we'll be working on lots of future projects. You rock!"

John Kroner

 

Your top notch service and marketing plan was simply amazing

"Thank you for your excellent service and professional handling of the sale of our home in The Legends and Claudia's condo. In this market, we realize that both of these listings were slam dunks to get marketed and sold. You and your team never gave up and handled all of our questions and concerns in a very responsive manner. We had a great feeling when we chose your team, but now that we've experienced your marketing and service plans in action, we wouldn't try anything else! Best of luck to you and your team!"

Virgil and Claudia Thomas

 

"As a small business owner and entrepreneur, I often see how poorly service is offered by many companies and people that work for them. When it comes to your team and the service that you offer to buyers or sellers, your team was second to none and unlike anything I've seen before from any realtor I've ever worked for. You took such great care in ensuring that I found exactly the home I wanted and assisted me with not only the tense negotiations but every step of the building inspection all the way to closing.

You and your team were simply phenomenal

What an experience! In addition, your handling of the sale of my home was such an awesome experience. Not only did you nail the pricing of my home in a challenging market but your handling of the offer negotiations and inspection resolution was so professional. You and your team made it a completely unstressful experience. I've already recommended you to several people."
