I would highly recommend Carol to anyone looking to list a house in the Athens area. Like most sellers, I was looking for several important characteristics in a listing agent: to secure a strong offer on the house in a prompt manner, to be responsive and available whenever I had questions, and to offer professional advice in maximizing our sales price. Carol exceeded my expectations on all fronts.
In terms of securing an offer, Carol was able to generate multiple offers on my property and helped by negotiating these offers in a fair and honest manner. The end result was an offer that matched my asking price with a closing date that was exactly when I wanted it to be. I have no doubt that this was a result of Carol’s professional presentation of my house through pictures, videos, and working her personal networks of agents to advertise this property.
From an availability perspective, I felt that Carol was always available whenever I needed her. I don’t think I ever waited more than a few hours for her to return a phone call or respond to an email. In the event that she was ever unavailable for a period of time, she proactively notified me and referred me to her associates should I need anything. In those cases, they were knowledgeable about my property and the status of the listing so I really felt as though I had two agents at my disposal instead of just one.
Finally, it is clear that Carol knows the Athens area, especially the east side and knows what it takes to get a property sold. During our initial visit, she offered some advice on how to present the property in its best light and she made sure the photographs adequately captured all the selling points of the home. From the time I accepted an offer until closing date, there were times were I started to feel uneasy about how things were progressing (in terms of inspections, appraisal, etc.) and Carol was always just a phone call away to assure me that things were progressing normally and that we would ultimately get to closing – which of course, we did.
All in all, I am extremely pleased with my choice of hiring Carol as my listing agent and would recommend her to anyone looking for a personalized experience with positive results. Carol’s approach is to build a personal relationship with her clients, not to simply treat them as a business opportunity. Her attentiveness and ability to generate results is commendable and if I was not moving out of the Athens area, I would certainly use her again in any home search or sale.
