Customer Testimonial | Sharon Bodiker

Sharon did everything possible to expedite the closing process and worked diligently to get all inspection items addressed in a timely manner. I can honestly say that Sharon is the reason we continued with the acquisition of the property. Sharon made the process easy and almost enjoyable.

Customer Testimonial | Scott Lindenberg

Buyer Rating:

We were new to the area but had done a lot of research beforehand about the general area that we wanted to be in. Scott created an easy-to-use website for us that helped us navigate all of our selections and kept us well informed when new property went on the market. He used his knowledge about the market to help us make an educated and smart offer on our new property. We were extremely satisfied to come well under the original purchase price. Scott made his entire process fun and stress-free for us. Even my kids loved visiting houses with him. We are thrilled to be living in our new dream home!

We had a great time every home we went to see. Mike is professional and just has an overall great personality. Definitely will recommend his services to all friends and family in need of a realtor.

Customer Testimonial | Nick Lynn

Seller Rating:

Nick handled the difficulties around this sale with patience. I suffer from PTSD and related issues and he answered each of my panicky messages concisely and calmly. In addition we had to go through a period of time restoring the home to have it sell faster and Nick provided advice and referrals as needed.

Customer Testimonial | Mark Smith

Buyer Rating:

Mark Smith had been looking at homes for and with me for a good while. He knew my "wish list" and found me exactly what I had been looking for. He brilliantly handled all negotiations for the property with a realtor who was representing an owner that had a tremendous sentimental attachment to the home. Once the contracts were signed, the process went as smooth as one could dream, even though there were several items that the inspectors required before closing. Mark took care of it all and kept me "stress free" which meant the world to me. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a home whether it be their first or their retirement home.

Customer Testimonial | John Bolos

Seller Rating:

I hired John (Johnny) Bolos as a seller's agent to help me sell my home at Arcadia Lakes, Columbia, SC. Initially, I was trying to sell the house by myself but it did not work out as realtors are very reluctant to deal with FSBO. Then John came fully prepared with price market analysis and convincing Power Point presentation. He was before everybody else, and although I interviewed another 10 realtors or so after him, I went back to hire John. He was very knowledgeable and ahead of everybody else. John is young, very energetic, and passionate about real estate. He is born for that; it is in his blood. Another major attraction was that John's company Century21 works at 5% commission whereas everybody else charges 6%. That was a big saving just to start. John and his assistant Maribel turned to be very professional, very responsive to phone calls and emails, and helped me through the process. John was available on evenings and weekends and if I would send him an email late at night, he would respond at around 6 am or so. John has good negotiation skills too. Once the home inspector came with some issues on the home inspection report, John also helped with hiring contractors. Sold the house after only 2 and a half months. We put it on the market for Memorial Day and closed on August 17, 2017. Overall, I am highly satisfied with John and Maribel and would strongly recommend Century 21. Thank you John and Maribel!!!

Customer Testimonial | Sharon Bodiker

Buyer Rating:

I can not stress enough the importance of how easy it was to communicate with Sharon, have her provide useful information, and her time to support the various inspections that were required for our home purchase. Sharon is simply a one of a kind Agent that absolutely cared about our interests during the purchasing process.

Sharon Bodiker is the reason why I took the time to complete this survey. Sharon has set the bar very high for any future Agents that we may work with. Of course, if Sharon is available and in the area, no one else will do. Sharon is second to NONE!

Customer Testimonial | JoAnn Gibson

Buyer Rating:

Joann Gibson was very polite and understanding of my needs and budget, and she was consistent and timely with lists of possible homes. She was always willing to accommodate me with regard tto checking out homes.

She kept me up to date on everything tthat went on during the offer and sales processes, and made the whole transaction very smooth and easy.

I would highly recommend Joann Gibson to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
