Kind Words

Seeing this on YELP just made my week – Thanks Adam!!! 

“I’m the proud owner of a condo since 2012 that I purchased with the indispensable help of Brad Reed. Brad was not only indefatigable in his efforts, but also pursued everything with humor and a relaxed manner that put me, a first-time home buyer, completely at ease.
Brad was extremely conscientious. In fact, I actually had put a deposit down on a place that I really liked and during the inspection process it was discovered that the outdoor patio (one of the major selling points of the property) was to require major repair. Brad phoned me and said “I can’t in good conscience recommend you buy this property…”
Apparently, Brad informed me, I would be dealing with thousands of dollars in repairs not factored into the asking price, and who knows what kind of red-tape with the HOA (all patio units needing to be uniform with the other units). I reluctantly passed on the property under Brad’s guidance. I trusted Brad that didn’t just want to make commission off a sale.  Brad wanted me to have the best possible home and home buying experience. I couldn’t have been more right.
A week later Brad helped me find a place that was even BETTER than the one I had originally put a deposit on! He shepherded me through dealing with whacky sellers, the craziness of other realtors, and through all the paperwork the whole way through. Anyone looking to have a great home buying/selling experience, I would highly  recommend Brad Reed and Ron Roth.”

Thank You!

Hello Everyone,

I was so touched by a recent testimonial that one of our buyers wrote for us on Yelp, that I really wanted to share it with you:

4/9/2014

“Brad Reed was of invaluable help to me in purchasing a home in 2009.  I was not only a first-time home buyer, I had just suffered a personal loss. Brad was extremely knowledgeable, unfailingly courteous and good-humored while I looked at over 100 houses (!!), patient, kind and supportive. He went out of his way to explore neighborhoods I suggested (which were off the beaten path then), as well as expanding my knowledge of possible locations. He listened while I made decisions and then revised them, and then revised our strategies accordingly. He took my queries and concerns seriously. He never pressured me to think above my budget and he taught me many things to watch for and consider, not only in home buying but home owning. Things I still keep in mind. And he made the paperwork seem easy -probably because he took care of most of it! And he was genuinely happy for me, and helped me celebrate, when I finally found my house – which I still love. On top of all this, Brad is clever and fun and and helps you remember that even along the sometimes rocky road of house hunting and buying, there are always laughs to be had, and searching for a home is interesting and exciting.”
