From start to finish, Mercedes is the ultimate professional. She understood our preferences, researched homes in advance to optimize our time viewing homes together, advised us which properties were likely to disappoint and which homes were on target. Purchasing a home from out of state has its challenges, and Mercedes was patient as she guided us through the processes and laws of North Carolina (very different from the state in which we live now), and negotiated fiercely on our behalf in reducing the sales price and inducing the owner to fix issues that surfaced in the Home Inspection Report. I cannot recommend her enough for all the "extras" she did for us, and only wished she were licensed in our current state so that she could handle the sale of our present home when we are ready to retire. Bottom-line: Mercedes made a stressful process (who wants to part with hundreds of thousands of dollars these days?) streamlined, and always with a sense of humor, pragmatism, and keen business acumen.

When I was ready to sell an investment property, I contacted Mercedes Vickers who was recommended my financial advisor. We arranged an appointment and she met with me in my home. She was very prepared for this visit and listened intently to me as I explained what I wanted to do. After asking some specific questions she explained thoroughly the process of listing and selling a house. She explained her responsibilities, the buyer’s responsibilities, and mine, as the seller. She was very organized and quite informed. After carefully taking all of my concerns into consideration and doing the things she needed to do, she listed the house. She was honest about what I needed to do to make the house more attractive to investors. The day after listing, I received an offer to buy the house. I believe one of the reasons that this property sold so quickly was because she marketed it to investors. I found her to be highly attentive throughout the process keeping me informed until the closing. What impressed me was the way Ms. Vickers treated me. She treated me as if I was her only client. She put a lot of energy into selling the house even though it was rental property and the selling price was low. She is highly personable with an engaging personality. I would list with her again and recommend her to anyone who is trying to sell or buy a house.
