We used Pat Carpenter at Realty USA to search for a house when we moved here 9 years ago.
She took us on a painstaking search of too numerous an amount of houses to mention. She zoned in on what we were looking for and helped us narrow down in our confusion and excitement at the idea of moving so far away from the nyc area.
She not only found us a great house in a great neighborhood but helped us in our challenging transition and move. She set us up with lawn, garbage, snow removal and other services until we were comfortably set in our move. She helped us find restaurants, drs and other services in the area. She gave us tours of the neighborhood and shortcuts to take driving and made it so personable. She was not just our realtor but became a friend.
This friendliness extended across the whole of Realty USA. They have invited us yearly to different functions and activities they have as a family. They have had barbacues and picnics, a play, baseball game tickets, and now yearly a trip to the movie theatre just for their family and friends and customers with popcorn and soda. We look forward to these events yearly.
They help you along the way, before , during and after your move. If you are looking to sell a house they are just as personable and fast. Houses in our neighborhood have been known to sell in as little as just one day - to not much more than a couple of months - the houses do not stay on the market long around here. I am sure it is partly do to their great exhuberance and friendliness and courtesy in the whole process.
If you use them to buy or sell you can not go wrong.
