Customer Testimonial

David Herr

Buyer Rating:

I was a first time buyer and Mr. Herr helped and guided me through the whole process. With me being a new buyer, there were times when I suggested making choices that weren't in my best interest and he would advise me on a decision that would work more in my favor. Mr. Herr went above and beyond to make sure that I received what I needed for and from this purchase. I thank him so much for helping me reach my goal of homeownership. This has been a blessed journey for me and I would definitely use Mr. Herr with any home purchases in the future to come. - Bridgett Goodwin January 2017

Seller Rating:

Diane Lynch went above and beyond when selling my house!

I would recommend Diane Lynch to others as she was thorough, a professional through the whole process. She also watched over my property in my absence and returned calls promptly. She also communicated with me what was going on about the potential buyers process of purchase which was very helpful. - Kathy Sovnski, Redford M October 2016

Russell Batts

Buyer Rating:

Russell Batts had worked with relatives on numerous occasions and they had the highest praise for him. My experience with him validates the praise our relatives had for him. We have worked with many other Agents in my career. None were as high as Russell in terms of being proactive, informed, concerned about us, and finally going way above the "call of duty" to make sure our needs were met in a timely and accurate way.

Top Marks from us. Many Thanks Russell.

Deborah Richter

Buyer Rating:

My agent, Deborah Richter is a real estate super hero! Being a first time homebuyer she saved me in so many ways! Right from the start she had our best interest at heart. She held my hand and guided me through this whole process, one I was extremely nervous about. Thanks to Deborah, she really took away all anxiety and made buying our first home fun! All I can say is that I could not be more pleased with my overall experience thanks to her! She deserves not only recognition for all of her hard work but maybe a superhero cape as well! Looking forward to sending all of my friends and family her way!!! Deborah Richter an all around amazing agent! - Amy Sutton, Charlotte August 2016

John Sterrett

Buyer Rating:

From beginning to end John was knowledgeable and kept us informed. We felt we were a priority and not just one of many. - Susan F., Indian Land, S July 2016

Elizabeth Bowden

Buyer Rating:

Beth was strongly recommended by a colleague and we absolutely agree with the assessment. Beth was a pleasure to work with. She was very patient with us even as the showings took longer because of the kids. At one point, she stayed outside to watch our kids sleeping in the car so that we could go look at a couple of houses. And she took the time to listen and understand our needs. That became very apparent when we got to one house that we instantly knew that we didn't like. Before we had a chance to tell her, she got out of her car and came to ours to let us know that she was going to cancel the showing because she could tell based on our needs that the house wouldn't work. Beth was truly our advocate throughout the process. We'd gladly work with her again and would definitely recommend her. - Yomi Oke, Huntersville, July 2016

Alan Brodman

Buyer Rating:

Alan is a very professional and very patient put as much as time to explain and answer any question and he do not have the answer right away he will find it and provide it latter. bottom line I will hire him again and again. thank you Alan for the great experience I had with you. - Yakoub Gorgi, Matthews May 2016

Lorraine Wilkinson

Buyer Rating:

Lorraine handled our purchase as if it were her own. Here attention to detail was amazing. Thank you for making the whole experience painless! - Michael Michalski November 2015

Robert Mays

Seller Rating:

Bob is A-MAYS-ING!!

He helped us to sell the same house we purchased through him in 2008. Both experiences were wonderful as Bob was so patient with us since we were first-time buyers and then first-time sellers. I'm not sure anyone else would have been so thorough in ensuring that we understood every step of the process. He was especially helpful in getting everything done and communicating with us since we live 9 hours away from the house we were selling.

Bob really does go above and beyond for his clients and I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat. Now...if only he were closer so he could help us buy a new house here in Maryland! - L. Jurca, Washington, D. October 2015

Suzanne Phythian

Buyer Rating:

Previously Suzanne Phythian helped us to rent a house in Charlotte. We were new in the area, coming from another state, and she was instrumental in her knowledge of the area and very effective on sharing her resources to help us find a property in Ballentyne, for a reasonable monthly rent. When we decided to buy a house, we contacted Suzanne and explained our specific needs. She again put her knowledge, resources, and professional skills to our services, in a timely manner, with a caring attitude. Suzanne went far and beyond to support us in the very stressful process of the closing.

It is fair to say that we just reach our goal due to Suzanne's support and availability. We already recommended Suzanne Phythian to family and friends.

Thank you so much. - The Marques, Charlotte, August 2015

Richard Bowden

Seller Rating:

I used Dick and the team based on the excellent relationship I had with the property management team. The process happened exactly how i had hoped, flawlessly. As an out of town owner, it was critical to work with a group that could take ownership of tasks associated with the property, and the team executed on all of those things. Communication was clear, and professionalism top notch. I wish all my working relationships in my profession worked as well. - Jay Flowe, Raleigh, Nc October 2016
