Testimonials for Nancy Braun
“Thanks so much to you and your staff for making this transaction such a wonderful experience for Chris and myself. I will certainly use your firm again for my real estate needs in your area.”
“In June 2014 I hired Nancy Braun to sell my home in Matthews and everything from signing the listing agreement to the closing went exceptionally well. While not Nancy’s fault, a couple buyers pulled out of their offers and Nancy called me immediately to explain why they cancelled – and she reassured me to hang in there because my house would sell…and it did for full asking price! Nancy and her team are very knowledgeable, responded to my calls quickly, and were very professional. In addition to that, their system allowed me to know when the house was shown and provided prospective buyer’s feedback about my house. I’ve never seen a system like it. It kept me informed…which came in handy as I live in San Diego. Based upon my experience, I highly recommend Nancy Braun and her team!”
“We relocated down from the Northeast to embrace a new life in Charlotte. We have 2 children, one of whom has a disability. Nancy listened and understood our safety concerns regarding my daughter and the lifestyle we hoped for. We also had pets that added other considerations to the mix. Nancy definitely kept our interests in mind and protected us throughout the process. Our children have labeled Nancy as our ‘first friend from Charlotte’. We feel the same. She has given us an image of this city and of our company as one that is friendly and helpful.”
“Your feedback provided additional insight into your local marketplace and helps us better market the properties in conjunction with your sales efforts.We appreciate your willingness to review processes and sales data in order to provide a quality BPO for each property. Your diligence to improve the overall salesprocess helps homeowners in the communities you serve and HUD. You are a valued provider to the HomeTelos team.”
I wrote an offer Saturday on a property that came on market late Friday night – we were the first ones to view, and submitted within the hour. It came down to my buyer and similar offer; my buyer really wanted the home, so we wrote a letter to seller stating our case per your suggestion [in the weekly agent video update].
We are now under contract! The listing agent said the letter was the deciding factor.
Thanks for tip!
