Here's a Peek at What the Herdman's Clients Have to Say...
"Their personal touch made us feel as if we were their only clients. Beverly has the go-getter personality and Jim balances the team out with his cool and calm personality. They worked with us, which at times caused what could only be a strain on anyone's patience, but they did it with true professional grace. Both, JIm and Beverly, listened to what my husband and I wanted in a new home and worked long hours helping us find just the right place. Their personal touch made us feel as if we were there only clients, when I know that we weren't. It was a journey that I look forward to continuing on the deck of ScanCabin!" Kirsten Scannon, Jeffersonton, VA
“Proving they had our best interest in mind made them stand out from out from other Realtors. Beverly and James, with their friendly and helpful nature, were there every step of the way. Their ability to work together and answer questions, made us feel comfortable with our home buying experience. Their specific skills and customer service focus helped us with details we would have missed. I can’t thank them enough for the help and care they took to make this dream come true. I recommend them for a multitude of reasons but the most prominent is trust. The level of comfort and trust that was displayed was very helpful in the ultimate decision we made.” Brian Scannon, Jeffersonton, VA
” I didn’t feel alone and they helped to ensure that I was getting the perfect house for my money.With purchasing my first home they were able to cater to my needs in a very friendly way. All the parts of the crazy puzzle of home buying were in place at settlement. You all helped me through the entire process and were there for all the elements of the home buying experience. Including being present in person to walk me through the home inspection, addendums, etc. you gave me advice and support the whole way. I definitely recommend Wine Trail Homes, LLC. Thanks again guys! We are very happy to be able to sit back and enjoy our own home!!” Monica Walton, Front Royal, VA
“They go above and beyond what most Realtors do. Beverly and Jim are knowledgeable about the local market and are always quick to respond to any questions or concerns we have. They have called us personally after they have previewed homes that met our criteria. Their great advice and depth of knowledge is evident. Coming from an investor, they are continuously giving us good leads on homes we may not have known about and advise us on the properties to make offers on. Based on local market knowledge, quick response, and overall comprehensive knowledge about the entire process of buying or selling a home we highly recommend Wine Trail Homes, LLC.” Laura Finks, Warrenton, VA
“We were treated so personably that we truly felt like we were Beverly's only clients! Beverly has the ability to be professional, personable, reassuring and extremely determined and hardworking all at the same time. When writing an offer knowing we were up against another, her strong contract writing skills prevailed. We could never find the words to truly express our gratitude to Wine Trail Homes, LLC for making our dream of homeownership possible. We are convinced they are the best in the business and went above and beyond. Making sure that we didn't simply buy a house but, instead, we invested in a home. We recommend Wine Trail Homes, LLC to anyone looking to buy or sell, (Beverly) because we know they'll be well taken care of! Thank you so very much.” Georgette and Tim Mosley, Culpeper, VA
"I am so blessed to have had your help... I can not thank you enough for all that you have done for me and my family! You are one of a kind! I am so blessed to have had your help and for your truly looking out for what was best for me and the kids. So, thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping me!" Katie Madeley, Culpeper, VA
"Beverly was professional, patient and committed. "When my husband and I began the process of looking for homes, we had no idea what we wanted or even if we were ready. Beverly was professional, patient and committed to helping us find exactly what we wanted, even if we didn't know quite what that was. Our home buying experience would not have been the same with any other realtor. Beverly Herdman is now our realtor AND friend for life!" Courtney Simpson, Culpeper, VA
"I needed an agent with a more aggressive approach. During a slow market, selling a house is tough. My house was on the market for over a year with other agents. I finally decided to go with Beverly because I needed an agent with a more aggressive approach. My house was sold with Beverly in less than a month. What I found most impressive with Beverly was her involvement in every step of the sale, including showing up at the inspection the buyers had arranged. It's just as important for the seller's interests to be protected as it is for the buyers. I was also pleased with the level of communication we had with Beverly and Jim. They kept us up-to-date on a regular basis, never leaving us to wonder about the status of our listing.
I highly recommend Beverly and Jim Herdman. They are a friendly and reliable team, and I definitely plan to go with them on any future real estate endeavors." Christine Daley, Rixeyville, VA
"She went above and beyond our expectations. Beverly was constantly in contact with us and was always finding new listings that fit our criteria. She was such a motivated, knowledgeable, and friendly person to work with during our first homebuying experience. She went above and beyond our expectations. We would recommend Beverly Herdman to anyone!" Kelly Conrad and Billy Litten, Culpeper, VA
"It was a whole other experience... "My wife and I were very dissatisfied and upset over the real estate industry in Virginia until we met Beverly. We had been dealing with another agent who was set on doing as little as possible to assist us. By chance, we ran across one of Beverly's listings that we were interested in and gave her a call. Although our Realtor was unwilling to show us the house for over two weeks, Beverly worked her hardest to come up with a solution. I spoke with her more times during that two days than I had with my Realtor the entire month! Although we didn't purchase the home, her name and number stuck with me.
"We eventually had enough and gave Beverly a call. It was a whole other experience dealing with her, and we were very surprised to see how buying a home should be. We were amazed that listings showed up to us, that we were getting calls to look at houses, and that she made sure our concerns were taken care of no matter what! We almost lost hope in getting a home, and were on the very thread of moving out of state until Beverly saved the day! I thank god we met her, and I owe her my family's well-being." Scott Withall, Unionville, VA
"We had four contracts on our home in five days! "We highly recommend Beverly Herdman as a realtor! She was honest, professional, and answered all of our questions. Because of her recommendations, we had four contracts on our home in five days, which in today's market is unheard of. If you are planning to buy or sell a home, you won't find a nicer person who truly has your best interest at heart." Mike and Jennie Fogle, Altoona, PA
