Valita Holmes recommends Felix Lee

Computer Network Administrator

I contacted Mr. Felix Lee after he had rendered service for a relative of mine. I was most pleased with his knowledge, his professionalism, and his patience as we had to deal with several parties in order to complete the sales transaction of a property I owned.

He was thoughtful, explained terms to me that I didn't understand, and would follow through without hesitation, therefore, resulting in a seamless sale of property.

I would definitely recommend his services to others. I appreciate his work ethic.

Joyita K. Wiley recommends Germany McNeal

Social Worker

Germany is heaven sent... I met her about 2 years ago through a mutal friend that had just purchased a house and used her as a realtor. When I met her she pulled my credit score and she explained to me what I needed to do to get my score higher. I followed her advised and my scored increased. Germany wasn't not a annoying realtor. She would check in just to see if I was on track which I liked. Right before my
closing in December I had two unexpected death in my family right at Christmas. I called Germany upset and crying and she was so calm and cool. At that moment I realize that I wasn't just a "client" to her but we had formed a genuine bond. Germany was there for me during that time. I was a nervous wreck about my closing but everything went smooth. Germany is truly a angel. She cares about her "clients" she isn't trying to make a quick sale. Keep up the good work Germany I'm so thankful that I was able to work with you

Marie Cope recommends Johnathan Howard

John was amazing to work with, he made the stressful process of buying and selling a home fun. He helped us sell and purchase our new house and even with a few bumps in the process he was on top of it and made sure it was corrected. He was always quick to respond to any questions we had and if he didn't know the answer he’d find out and get right back to us. Definitely would use John again in the future.

Christopher Cope recommends Johnathan Howard

Seller / Buyer

John was a pleasure to work with for both the sale of our current home and the purchase of the new one. He worked with us every step of the way to make sure we understood the process and how to market the house to get the best price we could. When we first met John, he was well prepared for our meeting and did not pressure us into signing with him. Since working with John, I have personally recommended him to friends looking for a realtor.
