TestimonialsWe appreciate all you did to get our home sold. We had it listed for with another agent for 153 days and it didnt sell.We had already moved into another home and this one was costing us money. After meeting 5 other agents, wechoose you to sell our home. You got a contract on our home on only the 3rd showing. We sold our home in just 19days. And, your commission was less than the agent who didnt sell our home. We plan to recommend you to ournext door neighbor whose home isnt selling either. Lee Annie VannWe appreciate you getting our home sold so fast since we were making two mortgage payments and had alreadymoved out of state. It had been listed with another agent for 6 months and didnt sell. We were recommended toyou by our neighbors who had the same problem as us. Since you got their home sold fast at a great price, wethought wed take their recommendation. Since we couldnt make it back to Atlanta it was so easy just to handle thewhole process over the phone. 7 days later, we were under contract. I cannot tell you enough what a relief it is.Thank you so much. Joe ChastineI want to thank you for all your hard work in selling my home as it had been listed with 2 other agents for theprevious 9 months and had not sold. I was skeptical that another agent was going to make a difference as I wentthrough the process of interviewing more agents before I made a decision to list my home with you. Luckily, I madethe right decision. It is due to your persistence that you got me multiple offers and sold my home in only 17 days. Iwould highly recommend you to anyone who wants to move. Paul WarnerKirk and I just want to say thank you so much for selling our home for us. As you know, wed already tried to sell ourhome with another agent who never returned our calls and never showed the property. It was a nightmare. Withyou, it was a different approach. You wanted to sell our house, had a plan and worked hard for the result wewanted. You kept in touch with us each week and gave us market updates and candid feedback from the buyers whosaw our home. That did the trick. Soon after we listed with you we got a contract on our home and our worries werebehind us. Thanks again. Claudia Kirk Stephens
Thank you for being the perfect agent for selling my home. I had tried to sell it myself and I kept getting offers thatwere well below market value. From our first meeting when you gave me a thorough analysis of the market to theclosing when you were willing to be my Power of Attorney in my absence to sign all the documents, youve been afantastic ally. I know that my home wouldnt have sold so fast and for the true value without your constant attention,analysis and helpful advice. I would tell anybody who needs an agent to pick you and they will be in good hands. Laura MarshallJust a quick note to say thanks for getting my home sold. I would not hesitate recommending you for yourprofessionalism throughout the process. The most impressive parts of your effort is your knowledge of the market,how your system works and then actually doing it. Thanks again and I hope well do it again in the future. Pete JohanssonWe want to thank you again for all your help in getting our home sold. It had been listed with another agent for 6months with very little interest. After seeing the marketing plan from a few agents, we knew we could feel confidentin choosing you. You found a buyer for our home very quickly and were persistent in following up with them andconvinced them to make an offer on our home. It is due to your persistence that our home sold in just 45 days. Weappreciate everything. Christy BalsamI appreciate the job you did in getting my home sold. I had it listed with another agent before you for 5 months andhardly got any showings. You called me and I decided to list with you after you showed me why it didnt sell. I didthe things you recommended and I couldnt believe it when it sold to the very first buyer who saw it. Yoursuggestions worked. I will tell all my family and friends that they have to use you for all their real estate needs. Noreen FeeleyThanks again for selling our home. We had it listed with another agent for 5 months and it didnt sell. After talking toa few agents, we decided to list with you. Your suggestions worked and we sold in 17 days. We are very happy nowand can move forward in our lives. We will tell everybody we know about you. Ron GebhardThanks for selling our home. It was listed with another agent for 3 months and we got a ton of interest but no offers.After speaking with a number of agents, we picked you. Fortunately, we made the right decision. You solved ourproblem and handled every detail quickly. After only 21 days working with you weve moved to Los Angeles and arepursuing our dream. We are grateful for your help and wish you the very best in the future. Dan Terri LapwingI want to thank you for all your guidance in helping me purchase my home. You were a strong negotiator and gotme the best deal I could get. And, I appreciate your knowledge of mortgages and the best way to save me money.You looked out for me and made sure that I was doing the right thing. Thanks for being my advocate. I wonthesitate recommending you for your knowledge, experience and commitment to my home purchase. Larry Scott
I appreciate all your efforts in selling my home. I tried to sell it on my own and got nowhere. I decided to go withyou because I knew youd be as persistent selling my home as you were with listing it. You were the most persistentof all the other agents that contacted me. Your persistence paid off and my home sold in only 20 days at full price.Im happy with the results and am excited that I can move to the beach. Yeah! Debbie DavisThanks for getting my home sold. I had it listed with another agent for 6 months and got nowhere. And, I barelyever heard from them. I was frustrated to say the least. You called me when my listing expired and I listed with youbecause you were confident and showed you cared. My house started getting shown immediately and we got acontract in just 19 days. I wish I wouldve listed with you in the beginning. Now I can move to my home in themountains and fulfill my dream. I would be happy for you to use me as a reference. Paula FlemingThank you for getting my home sold. I had tried to sell it on my own and didnt get any offers. You came out and Idecided to let you take it over. I had already bought another home at the lake and was losing money making twomortgage payments. I appreciate you getting it sold fast and saving me money. I would suggest you to anyone whowants to buy or sell a home. Chad HodgeI appreciate all your patience and help in getting my home sold. I had it listed with another agent for over 6 monthsand the marketing failed. Then, I listed with another agent and knew I made the wrong decision, again. You cameout to see me, were candid and gave me the truth. I trusted that you could solve my problem and in 19 days you got3 offers on the home, the same day. To say the least, Im ecstatic that you were able to sell my home and help mefind the perfect the perfect new home for my family. Lashawn MaxwellIm so happy you got my home sold. I had it listed with another agent for 4 months and it didnt sell. You called andcalled and I decided to give you a chance. Sure enough, we shortly got a contract on the home in 78 days. Iappreciate you discovering through the feedback why I wasnt getting offers and what my options were to resolve it.I would highly recommend you to everyone who is planning to sell or buy a home. Winston PeakI wanted to tell you what a great job you did in getting my home sold. Our home was listed over 6 months and wasfailing the marketing process. We liked your knowledge of the market and your strategy so we listed with you. Yougave us the truth on all the feedback from the showings and instead of doing the same thing over and over again,you gave us options on what to do to sell our home. It worked. We were able to get our home sold quickly in just 45days. Now we can retire and play more golf. Best of luck to you in the future. Dick Tempest
Thank you for selling my home. It was frustrating watching other homes sell in my neighborhood while mine satthere for over 3 months. Im glad I listed with you after meeting the other agents. You stayed in touch with me eachweek, kept me informed about the market and gave me all the feedback from the showings. In just 25 days, theproblem was solved. Ive had a great experience working with you and will tell all my family and friends about you.Thanks again. Geneva WhiteWe can never thank you enough for getting our home sold. As you know, we had it listed with an agent for 326 dayswho did a lot of radio and television advertising guaranteeing our home would sell or they would buy it. Obviously, itwas a gimmick that we fell for. And, they didnt buy it after their marketing failed. We got no attention and rarelyspoke to them again after the home was listed. We wanted an agent that would focus on us and not treat us like anumber. Shortly after listing with you our home sold. We are so grateful that you took such good care of us. Luis NeiraYou did a great job selling my house. It had been on the market with 2 other agents for almost an entire year and Igot no offers. You kept in touch with me each week, gave me great feedback from the showings and I was able tosell my home in only 35 days. Amazing! I wish I couldve had you from the start and I wouldnt have had to strugglewith all the uncertainty of knowing if and when my house would ever sell. I appreciate all your hard work. Youre thebest! Monika TeagueWe are sending you card to say thank you for getting our home sold so we can be close to our family. Were prettymuch settled in now and appreciate everything being so easy. Let Ruth know that we appreciate all her guidancebehind the scenes to facilitate a smooth closing, too. We will highly recommend you to anyone who wants to move.Talk to you soon. Honey Bill Reese
