She keeps good communication throughout the entire process and I am happy I chose her to be my broker. I will recommend her to many people.

Deborah Richter

Buyer Rating:

I chose Deborah because she is an experienced realtor who would be able to help us through this entire journey. I wanted a realtor that would have had a been there, done that platform. It has been a long time since we bought/sold a house. It comforted my that whatever would arise Deborah would have most likely dealt with that situation before and would be able to help. I felt we bombarded her with lots of questions. And she was able to answer each one. It was also an added bonus that she lived in my neighborhood.

Whenever I had a question. Deborah was quick to answer. I never had to wait longer than a few minutes for a response. - Kelly Pierson, Waxhaw, N May 2016

David Herr

Buyer Rating:

Initially, we were a little daunted at the thought of buying our first home. Working with Dave Herr made the process very smooth and actually enjoyable. He was very professional, quick in planning and following through. He made us feel very comfortable and explained all our options, taking into account our personal preferences. The whole home buying process has been extremely positive for us, and Dave Herr's involvement was a big part of this. - Caleb And Danielle Wilco December 2015

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

Richard Bowden

Seller Rating:

We chose Richard Bowden/Bowden Realty based on the outstanding service he had previously provided as our rental property manager.

Richard professionally navigated both sides of a complex transaction, ensuring our interests were continually represented in an honest and trustworthy manner. - Jon Strittmater, Charlot September 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

Heather Mento

Seller Rating:

Heather Mento is a TRUSTWORTHY, CONFIDENT , and PROFESSIONAL agent that puts you first. Heather Mento EXCEEDS expectations and delivers as promised. I would and will recommend Heather Mento for any and all real-estate transactions in the future. If you are looking for an agent that wants you to be satisfied with her performance then hire Heather Mento to be your agent. I have bought and sold three houses in 15 years. My previous experience was met with severe dissatisfaction with the entire process, due to the lies that most real estate agents will tell to get you to sign on the dotted line. Heather Mento is not a bait and switch agent you will not be disapointed. - Jason Snyder charlotte, September 2015
