Thank you Elliot!
Linda was committed to getting our property sold and told us to. Be patient that the right person would come. She kept telling us we had a special home to just g one and she was right.
She advised me several things that I can do to show my house's appealing.
This is our third time buying a house and we have never had as great a realtor as Barry. His attention to details, constant communication, and answering every minute question we had was second to none. He was always professional, upfront and honest with us, and never 'pulled any punches'. That is to say, he would not sugarcoat anything, he told us the truth and helped us make the right decision. If you need a realtor in Fayetteville, Barry is the man to select!
We originally contacted Amy about a listing through Century 21 but, we were outbid on the house which put us back searching the market again. Mrs. Amy was very helpful and offered us help in finding something else in our price range but, still something we wanted and we would like. We contacted her about a HUD owned home in the area that Century 21 was ring and set up an appointment. After viewing the house we liked it but, were unsure on it. So Mrs. Amy showed us plenty more options in the area and within our budget. After talking it over we decided to call Mrs. Amy back because any other listing agent we had called/dealt with (Coldwell Banker, ReMax, etc) didn't seem helpful, outgoing, or even happy to talk/deal with us. Mrs. Amy was very knowledgeable about everything being we were first time homebuyers. She always responded quickly to texts or if she was on the phone, she responded shortly thereafter. I would highly recommend using Century 21 again just because of Amy Smith.
Mrs. Amy was very knowledgeable of our area and find us multiple homes that were in good areas we liked and in our budget. Also, she found plenty of homes that were around the size we wanted room and square footage wise. When it came to negotiating the price of the house she was a tremendous help being as we were eager first time home buyers and also we put in a few offers before HUD accepted it and never once did she seem aggravated/bothered by us with all of our phone calls, texts, emails. When it came time to close on the house she was very prompt, helpful in what we needed to bring, and even wished us the best of luck with our life. She is definitely a great agent that I'd do business with again.
The following traits above don't do justice in describing Mrs. Amy. She was always helpful, kind, prompt, understanding of our busy schedules and also very knowledgeable as we journeyed thru our home buying process.
Mrs. Amy was always helpful and flexible in her schedule throughout the entire purchase of our home. I would definitely use Mrs. Amy again in purchasing a home, shop, or property due to her customer service skills/interactions.
Enjoy working with Leroy Rising. Very patient, and nice man. No complaints on his character. Very knowledgeable about real estate housing and property and how to it sold for a decent price.
Elliott did a great job! He was patient informative and understanding
Linda did excellent work throughtout the entire process of selling our house. This is the second property she has sold for us in four months. Through both sales she made excellent suggestions in situations we weren't sure how to handle, never telling what to do. She dealt with each situation with the buyers agents in a very professional manner with positive results. We would recommend Linda Little to anyone buying or selling real estate.
Lisa was very helpful and always got back to me in a timely manner. I would definitely recommend her to anyone who is interested in selling/buying a house.
Barry was great! He made our home buying experience wonderful and we are so thankful we were able to work with him! We highly recommend Barry to anyone looking to buy or sell!!
Amy, was very easy to work with and she listened to me. I have worked with other agents and other offices, but my experience with Amy Smith was always easy. In the past I had looked at homes with Amy and could not find the home for me. Although, I did not purchase at the time she treated me with kindness and was very patient. It appeared that my home buying experience was not just about her commission but also about my happiness with the purchase decision. I am very glad that Amy was my realtor and that she was so well connected with the people in the community that providing related services. I lived out of the state at the time and her knowledge and references made it so easy for me to get the things I needed done and quickly. I will definitely refer Amy to anyone I know and I would surely use her again.
See previous comment. That was my testimonial.
Great experience with this office when relocating to Lumberton in 2003.
Professional in every aspect. We felt that Elliott extended his expertise in all aspects of the sale.
Although, it took over a year to sale this home, with each agent came the professional abilities that we felt comfortable with. We always felt we were in the best hands as far as the agency is concerned. We appreciated the continued diligence in trying to sale this home.
Linda is beyond wonderful at her job. She is patient and willing to go the extra mile to help the home buying process go smooth. What a wonderful first home buying experience!
Mrs. Lisa was amazing! She was there for my husband and I whenever we had a question or concern! She was very knowledgeable and she loves her job! It really shows when someone enjoys their job. I would recommend her to anyone in the market for a house. I appreciate her so much for helping us with our dream home!
Amy Smith is an outstanding Agent and I would highly recommend her, to help you sale your home.
Pros: Professional, polite, readily available by text, knowledgeable about the market, easy to work with, conscience of your time and she made the experience painless and effortless i.e down to signing the paperwork I did not have to do anything; she worked for me...
Con: None really but, I would have like to have had more suggestions, from a professional, on home improvement (no monetary improvements) to help sale my home... I.E. maybe move this chair to open the room up or put your Kitchen Aid mixer in cabinets to open up your counter space... Lets rearrange this room to make the fireplace a focal point of this room... (instead of my wife in my ear with her "non professional" suggestions).
Leroy helped us sell a previous house. He is a hard worker and a go-getter. He has had good results in selling other houses. Leroy is a good communicator and kept us informed throughout the entire process. We were grateful for the virtual tour using a drone that we understand he paid for himself.
He was even willing to make a financial sacrifice to help us over some rough spots in the negotiations.
Over the years we have sold many houses. Leroy Rising is among the best real estate agents we have ever had. We expected this when we selected him to represent us and he lived up to our expectations.
I would recommend Leroy Rising for anyone looking for a real estate agent.
Century 21 was recommended to us in our relocation package. I was very thankful to have had Lisa Little as my agent during this time. I had a short window to work in to purchase a home and Lisa worked very hard to have the houses set each day for us to visit. I appreciated all of Lisa's hard work and time.
Amy was excellent at educating me through the unexpected challenges of this sell.
