Tommy Mcgee helped me find a great home, in a great neighborhood, with limited allowance from the bank. He listened to my budget and went to work for me. Very patient. You cannot go wrong with Tommy!- E.N.
Gayle Haddock is the best Realtor I’ve ever done business with. She was very professional and always replied in a timely manner. Her knowledge of the area and real estate was outstanding. She went above and beyond what she needed to do to get the job done and our house sold. I highly recommend her!- H.D.
My family and I have worked with Home Advantage Realty in the purchase of three homes and the sale of one. Home Advantage Realty is the Gold Standard for real estate services. We have repeatedly turned to Jill and Lyndsey for our family’s real estate needs because we value and trust their opinion and judgment of the real estate market. They have your best interest at heart. They are not after a quick sale; it is important to them that your needs and desires are met. Most importantly, they have the qualities that are important to me—-responsiveness, attention-to-detail, and follow up. It is refreshing to work with people who anticipate your needs.- C.V.
If you need a great realtor in Columbia, SC area, I highly recommend Jen Kemp with Home Advantage Realty. We appreciate Jen's help in selling our two SC homes. Jen's marketing strategies, negotiation and networking skills, attention to detail made the process easy and efficient for us. We couldn't be happier we chose Jen to list our properties.- S. A.
Our rockstar realtor, Sarah Evans, stopped by our new house bearing gifts, including this adorable Boston Red Sox hat for Jack! Sarah worked her tail end off for us! We had an offer on our home after the first showing! She worked hard to find us just the right home in our price range and worked expeditiously with all involved parties -the appraiser, the buyer's lender, the buyer's agent, our lender, closing attorneys, etc..., to make sure our closings went smoothly. She's also great at holding babies while you explore homes! If you're in the market for a house or even considering selling your home, you need to contact this woman--shes incredible. Thank you Sarah!- V.S.
Lisa Despres of Home Advantage Realty has been a complete angel in my home buying experience. Like I literally think my angels sent her. I am a first-time homebuyer and we all know how nerve-wrecking that experience can be. The moment I met Lisa, I was comfortable. I didn’t have one unanswered question. It was almost like she was looking for a home for herself, that’s how much care she showed. She told me when she thought certain homes wouldn’t live up to the experience I was looking for and I appreciated that more than anything. It showed her wonderful and selfless character. Lisa found me a beautiful home that fit my criteria and was within my budget in a limited time period. I am now living in an amazing neighborhood in a home that looks like it came out of a fairytale. And my daughter and I couldn’t be happier! Home Advantage Realty is literally the only agency I’ll be using. Their patience, focus and client care is absolutely exceptional. I highly recommend it. 5 stars!- L.V.
Jimmy was very professional throughout our entire experience. He advocated very strongly on our behalf whenever negotiations were taking place. I can't imagine going through the selling experience with anyone other than Jimmy now that we know the quality of his work and the level of his commitment.- K.P.
We highly recommend Carolyn Green as a realtor! From beginning to end, she was helpful, considerate, transparent, a great listener and takes great care of you. We were impressed with her expertise and she shared her recommendation whenever there was a concern/question. We were happy with the end result from her recommendations. We could not ask for a better realtor, she went above and beyond our expectations. If we ever need a realtor again, we will definitely contact her again!- P.M.
Laura is a conscientious, honest, and knowledgeable agent. We are so glad she was recommended to us when we moved to SC from another state! She showed us properties across three counties and found homes matching our criteria and within our budget to consider. She guided us through buying a short-sale with patience and professionalism. She helped us navigate many inspections, provided recommendations for contractors, and made sure our closing took place on time. She always maintained a pleasant attitude and was always available for our questions and concerns. We could not have asked for a better agent, and we highly recommend her!- T.S.
Martha is/was wonderful! Martha took a lot of time with us. She promptly answered all of our questions. She made our buying experience smooth, organized and as stress free as possible. Martha is not only kind, but she is a hometown agent. She knows the area and has a lot of reputable contacts with regards to inspectors, painters and flooring representatives. Everytime we asked if she knew someone who could help us she always had a contact. As buyers not from the area, we found this very helpful. We have nothing but praise for Martha McCoy!- A.S.
