Henry Hayden Hill recommends Kristin Stokes

Onsite Supervisor

Moving to a new city, in a new state, is a daunting almost overwhelming experience especially when it is your first time buying a home. Kristin was not only helpful is walking me through the process but unwaivering in finding me a home. She was uncompromising and did not accept homes that were not to standard. I have no doubt she will do the same for you. In short, she truly cares about your experience before and after buying a home.

Emily Mann recommends Kristin Stokes

Truck Driver

Kristin was very easy to talk to, very relatable, knew her market, and listened to what we needed. She found us a house right away. She last minute took us, after having a long day already, to show us houses and went above and beyond to make sure we found a place to call home.

Senior Vice President

I have had the privilege of working with Rick and interacting with him in real estate networking sessions. Rick is honest, straight forward, hard working, creative, and fun to be around. All the traits you look for in a business partner and a friend. He is always willing to go the extra mile for you. I recommend Rick as someone you can trust and count on. If you get a chance to work with Rick . . . . Do It!

Sarah S recommends Rick Stroud

Rick is very patient with his clients. Some realtors may have given up on me, but Rick understood my specific tastes and stuck with me for over two+ years of searching for the perfect place. He helped me lock down a contract the same day my property went on the market and assisted in a quick close.

We have used Rick several times to locate houses for us. We can't say enough about his ability to put us in the right house at the right price. He listens to what you say and finds exactly what you are looking for. He can find houses to buy and sell them! He is professional, and always gets back to you when he says he will. If you want the best, hire Rick!

Mr. Rick Stroud was professional, courteous, and most importantly of all: he under-promised and over-delivered.

Yvonne W recommends Rick Stroud

Rick Stroud was always available and would respond every time I needed to speak to him. After having my house for sale going on 2 years with another realtor, Rick had more views of the property in a shorter time. He was never discouraging and always gave valuable suggestions which I liked since this was my first time for selling a home. I will always remember the great service he provided and will refer him to others. Thanks Rick for a pleasant experience.

Rick was very easy to work with and not at all pushy. We couldn't have asked for a better agent! We would recommend him to any home buyer! If we buy another home in Greenville, Rick will be our agent again!

Jennifer and Andy recommends Rick Stroud

I was originally nervous trusting someone else to man the whole process of buying our new home, but now that all is said and done, I can honestly say I am SO glad we decided to let Rick Stroud take the reins on this! From searching out the perfect house in the perfect location for our family to negotiating a truly incredible deal with the sellers Of the house we chose, I was pleasantly surprised over and over with Rick's commitment to us as his clients. He truly went above and beyond to be flexible in meeting with us to see houses (even though our schedule made it difficult). He even showed several houses to me via FaceTime on my phone when my chronic illness kept me from being able to go out to see them in person! He was courteous, professional, efficient, and thorough throughout each part of the home buying process, and I'm confident that he will give the same service to anyone that reads this review and chooses to use him when buying their home. Thank you Rick for making a stressful process go so smoothly for us!

Sherri and Ralph recommends Rick Stroud

Rick was excellent to work with. He was very patient with our changing needs. We looked at a lot of different types of homes and he was always willing to show us as many as we wanted. I felt that he was working for us making sure he pointed out even small things wrong with homes. I really knew he was when it came time to purchase and negotiate fair deal he asked that seller do many things that even I overlooked. It was like we had a team of people working for us as Rick had many connections. He is also a very nice person to talk to and I consider him a friend. I would recommend anyone who is looking to purchase a home use his professional skills It really matters as home buying can be stressful but not with rick and his team.

Lynn and Jeff recommends Rick Stroud

Rick went up and beyond for us. We had a number of issues come up between buyer and seller and he went to bat for us each time. We totally trusted his instinct and recommendations and it paid off every time. Rick has surrounded himself with a great team of experts each of whom were great communicators and hit or preceded each of our deadlines. I strongly recommend Rick and his team.
