Joan, just wanted to tell you how much I appreciate you going over to our house while the appraiser was there today! I was tied up this morning and couldn’t tell you myself, but I really really appreciate it. I’m sure it will make a difference and now I will feel really good whatever the appraisal comes back at because I just know that you going the extra mile will help as much as it can in view of the comps. Thanks again from the bottom of my heart. You really do go the extra mile for your customers!!
Joan is a top notch professional in all aspects of our dealings with her in the sale of our home. From her wealth of knowledge, to her can do attitude, she is a pleasure to work with. Always available, responsive, and follows through on all commitments . We would recommend Joan without hesitation and look forward with her on the purchase of our new home.
There aren't enough good things I can say about working with Joan Culwell. Our relationship began when she helped us sell our home very quickly in a tough market. She was proactive, professional, and kept us comfortable with the entire process. Normally the "sold sign" is when a relationship with a Realtor ends, but Joan always goes above and beyond. After moving to another state, she assisted us with finding a local Realtor and has given us savvy advice along the way. Joan's warm personality and genuineness makes you feel like you are more than just another client to her, that you are her friend as well. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
I read that when selling a house you should talk to a minimum of 3 realtors. I didn't know Joan but noticed that she recently sold a house in my neighborhood for $135K OVER asking price. So in addition to calling two realtors I knew, I contacted Joan. I had both of the other realtors come to my home, but neither of them seemed particularly interested in all of the upgrades I had done. Both of them explained how bad the market had gotten lately and were very discouraging (probably to lower my expectations). They then both gave me market estimates. When Joan showed up, she spent nearly two hours with me and took 3 pages of notes on all of the upgrades and features of my home. Since she had already done her research she was able to provide her market estimate on the spot, which was $100K higher than the other two realtors. I signed on the spot. Prior to listing, she put 20+ notecards all over the house pointing out features and upgrades. She also sent mailers to everyone in the area and had wonderful pictures taken. I am happy to say that we had multiple showings on the first 3 days and were under contract within 5 days! We closed in 30 days for a price well above asking. Needless to say I couldn't be more pleased. Trust me, there is a huge difference between realtors and Joan is the best one I have ever worked with.
I have to say up front how wonderful you are to put SO much time and energy into trying to find a home that will meet our stringent criteria. It just touches my heart. Yes, I know you are also attending to us as clients, but you really do put so much into what you do! Well, I´m really feeling gushy this morning! Thanks!
