RE/MAX was just named #1 in consumer satisfaction for both buyers and sellers by J.D. Power and Associates

Spartanburg and Greenville SC Real Estate - Spartanburg & Greenville Real Estate Specialist

Home Buyers and Sellers Prefer RE/MAX RE/MAX Ranks Highest in Customer Satisfaction in
2011 J.D. Power and Associates Study
"It all comes down to professionalism and a commitment to a premier level of customer service," said RE/MAX Chairman and Co-Founder

This is the fourth annual study of home buyer and seller satisfaction with the largest national real estate companies, conducted by J.D. Power and Associates. For the home buying experience, three factors were considered: agent/salesperson, office and a variety of additional services. Four factors were examined for the home-selling experience: agent/salesperson, marketing, office and a variety of additional services.

Details from the study indicate that on a scale of 1,000, homebuyer respondents ranked RE/MAX with a score of 805 and home sellers put RE/MAX on top at 791. The 2011 study includes more than 4,200 evaluations from 3,680 respondents who bought or sold a home in the U.S. between March 2010 and April 2011.
– Results from the J.D. Power and Associates 2011 Home Buyer/Seller StudySM, recognize RE/MAX for providing the highest overall consumer satisfaction for both home buyers and home sellers. In last year’s study, two different companies ranked the highest in each category, but this year home buyers and sellers both rated RE/MAX the highest. Dave Liniger. "Because RE/MAX agents average more experience and training than other agents, they are better prepared to deal with home buyers and sellers in any kind of market. And, consumer preferences tell the story . . . nobody sells more real estate than RE/MAX."
In two other 2011 industry surveys of the country’s top real estate brokerages, RE/MAX agents averaged more transaction sides than agents at the other national franchises. The RIS Media Power Broker Survey and the REAL Trends 500 both showed that RE/MAX agents averaged over 14 transactions sides, more than double the average of many competitors.

The success of RE/MAX agents is the result of its comprehensive educational platform, RE/MAX University, which offers over 1,100 educational programs on-demand, and available online, on television, on smart phones and in classrooms around the world.

One Person Reaching One Life....We Can Make A Difference!

Do you ever wonder if you are making a difference?  I ask myself that all the time.  I truly want to make a difference in the lives of each and every person I meet and I want that difference to be good and not bad. How about you?

Each day I am bombarded with bad news. I hear of disasters all around us including a political system gone completely out of control with seemingly no solutions.  Who is willing to make the sacrifices that must be made?  Suicides are on the rise in all aspects of society but maybe more noticeably with celebrities and sports figures. One would think with all the privileges and opportunities given them they would be on top of the world but they are hurting. Who cared? I hear of mothers aborting their babies because it was not convenient for them to raise a child instead of giving that child up for adoption allowing that poor child the right to live but just as those babies deserved to live those mothers were at a place in their lives where they maybe had no where to turn. Who was there to help them?  I hear about the beatings and humiliations of dear folks by racists who think it is their right to judge a person by the color of their skin. Where were those who would take a stand and stop the violence from happening? I hear of families being torn apart because a parent will not give up their selfish lifestyles long enough to notice their children are in desperate need of love and attention who look elsewhere for it when it is not given at home. Who took the time to see a hurting family?  I see politicians evading taxes and finding ways to pad their own pockets while the rest of us suffer the consequences. Which of us will vote them out of office permanently?  Over and over again we hear of deceit, lies, hypocrisies, atrocities and more until we become numb and almost desensitized by the horror of it all.

GOD HELP US ALL TO WAKE UP! What have we become as a nation? Do we acknowledge that in some ways we must take responsiblity? Do we even care? Our very existence depends on it.

ONE person reaching ONE life .....WHAT A DIFFERENCE we all can make if we develop this philosophy.

Today I am going to make a difference in the life of at least ONE person. How about you?

Did You Know? The RE/MAX Edition 3.1

I appreciate my clients and want to share some of their testimonials!

I wanted to say a great big thank you to all who have taken the time to just say THANK YOU to me for the services I have provided to you.  I appreciate each and every opportunity given to me and do not take any blessing for granted. 

To anyone looking to buy or sell a home please take a few moments to read this. My name is Chris Pilcher and my wife and I had been looking for a home for about a year and a half. During that time we worked with a number of Real Estate Agents in the upstate area and received the same representation that we had received in the past. My wife was referred to Lisa by a co-worker. I gave Lisa a call and she immediately went to work trying to find us a home. This was no easy task because we have had some significant setbacks like many others in this economy. Lisa emailed me some listings and we saw a house we wanted to look at. We met Lisa at the house and about 30 minutes later we were sitting in a restaurant writing a contract.

This was the point where Lisa distanced herself from every other Real Estate Agent we had ever worked with. She worked above and beyond what we had come to expect and trust me when I say above and beyond I mean exponentially above and beyond. My wife and I could not believe the amount of effort she put into clearing the obstacles that were preventing us from closing on time. Now I know that many of you reading this have been through this process but please understand that aside from the mortgage lender we chose, Lisa recommended the Legal firm, the home inspector/WDO inspection as well as several contractors who completed some required repairs so that the process was not delayed. Lisa managed the process as well as any corporate executive orchestrating a complex business deal. My wife and I can not emphasize just how wonderful the experience was and how she bore the burden of dealing with everything that was going on while, I might add, she was dealing with her other clients. We are proud to call Lisa our friend now and would never even consider using anyone else for our Real Estate needs.  Sincerely,  Chris Pilcher

Working with Lisa was a great experience. She was very patient with me being a first time home buyer and not knowing exactly what I wanted. She is very knowledgeable and provided me with much needed information about comparable sales and potential pitfalls that might arise helping me to make the best decision for my needs. She didn’t hesitate to offer her advice in an encouraging and friendly manner. Lisa is very energetic and works hard to find your perfect home at the best price! Two thumbs up and highly recommend!    Andy Hewitt  2011
Lisa, We can't believe we got this house! You are wonderful. If we had any of the last 4 real estate agents, trying to fight for this house, we wouldn't have had a chance. No one else would've stayed on top of HUD, the bank, and even the lawyers like you had to. You are the best agent we have ever met. Thank you so very much, Raymond & Joanna

Lisa,  We are so grateful to you for all the prayers (first and foremost), incredible work ethic and passion that was demonstrated as you helped us to find and purchase our new home. We know that this was and still is a God relationship and greater things are to come. We are blessed to know you and your team and count it as destiny to have linked up with you. Be blessed and keep Expecting God...Ps 62:5 We love you.  The Durrah family 

I must say we really enjoyed you guys as well and you really made our purchasing experience good because you made sure you got us what we wanted I will definitely invite you over as soon as we get straightened out we are very happy with the house and you can look forward to some references once more of our friends start to purchase and I will keep you updated on number changes THANKS A MILLION   !  Brittany Lockhart-Louden  
Dear Lisa, It has been a pleasure working with you and we consider you a friend. You were highly recommended by our neighbors. Thank you for selling two properties for us in 2009 in such a difficult market.  You not only sold our properties but we received our asking price on both properties.  We would recommend you to anyone selling or purchasing a home.
With Sincere Appreciation, Robert and Sheila Taylor   

 Lisa, thank you so much for all your hard work in helping us purchase our land. You went over and above expectations. We really appreciate the extra time you took in contacting people we couldn't reach. You did an excellent job and we would recommend you to anybody. Thanks again! Trey and Emily  

Hi Lisa, Thank you for all of the work that you did, showing us numerous houses and usually on the spur of the moment. You were always upbeat and wearing a sunshiny smile. You always made us feel special. Thank you for all of your referrals and helping us to know where to go and who to call to get what we needed to make the purchasing of our new home in Wellford have little stress and an easy transaction. You became not only our realtor, but we feel a friend. God Bless.       Georgia & Wendall Barton  

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Lisa and her team. Anytime we had problems or questions, they took care of it in a very timely manner. We only have high praises for this team of professionals. Lisa Ebersole was the first one I called. She was always available to me. If I called or emailed she was always there. She never acted as if my calls or emails inconvenienced her and she always got an answer for me. She took her time with us. She was a joy to be around. Fred & Gail Goudey

"Lisa, Thanks for all the help in getting us here !!! It's great and we love it already!  I've been so busy settling all the animals, haven't done much unpacking yet.  Stop by anytime!!!  Take care and thanks again!!!                              Jill & Alan Rodomsky"

"Dear Lisa,  You give a new meaning to service after the sale.  Sorry it took so long to send this note of thanks, but we are finally getting settled.  We love the house.  Thanks for the candle.  That was so thoughtful of you!  With Sincere Thanks, Shirley Long & Family"

"Lisa, A simple "Thank You" just doesn't seem to be enough for all you have done for my family. We are very blessed to have met such a special person and friend! Take Care”, Robert D."

"Lisa, We know that our home was difficult to sell because of location, but I must say you did an outstanding job in a very reasonable time frame.  Sincerely,Rick B.

"Lisa, A note of appreciation for the outstanding job you did in marketing our home for us. At a difficult time of the year during Thanksgiving & Christmas holidays. Your ability to network the real estate market in Spartanburg & Greenville is above what we expected. Wallace P."
