We can’t even begin to thank Robert S. in Raleigh for this tremendous review! Having a team as dedicated as ours is to client success is just one of the many things that make our jobs the best in town. But don’t take it from us, read how Robert says we went the extra mile to ensure his unique listing in Raleigh was under contract and sold quickly…
“My house sold today! I was very happy to have Renee Hillman, plus her team, as my agent. I recommend them without reservation. Here are a few reasons why:
Renee does her research. This happened even before we met in person, so that during our first discussion she could give me a range of asking prices I could think about for the house. She took my situation and preferences into account (I wasn’t living in the house, I wasn’t in a hurry to sell, etc.) and made a recommendation. The number we settled on was higher than I’d expected, but fine–no hurry. The majority of online comments that came in judged that the house was over-priced. But in the end? We had two offers, within a couple of weeks, the higher one for almost 4% more than our asking price. The right people found our house and liked it. Renee had great judgment.
Selling a house turns out to be a lot more complicated than I’d expected. There were lawyers to talk with, electricians, window repair people, a junk removal service, cleaners… people doing stuff that needed to be fixed. There’s the process as well: staging the house, taking photographs, putting the information online (Zillow and other places), managing walk-throughs and an open house, and probably other things I’ve forgotten. The bottom line is that Renee took care of all of this. I could have been more involved–she’s transparent about everything going on–but I trusted her to make it all work. She did. The Zillow house listing was getting between 100 and 700 views every day, and there were a couple of dozen visits.
I was in a complicated situation, living 300 miles away and visiting Raleigh once every few weeks. And the house was still half-full! How could I get everything out in time for the closing? Rebecca, Renee’s assistant, stepped up and supervised donations to charity (including disassembling an entire floor loom!), cleaning, junk removal, and so forth. (I’ll also mention Mary, another person on the team, who saved the day when it came to legal paperwork, because she’s a notary public.)
That’s my story, with a happy ending. For context, I’m a college professor, and in my roles as teacher and advisor I have to judge people’s competence (for better or worse). You should do well with Renee.”
Thanks again, Robert! If you’re reading this and ready to have our team get to work for you, please contact us today.
