Customer Testimonial | Mike Steed

Seller Rating:

Mike Steed is a true professional who sold our house before we could even put up a "for sale" sign! It sold much faster than the rest of the houses in the neighborhood. He knows how to price and advertise, and he was a huge help in obtaining contractors who accomplished all critical repairs!!! He remained in contact, providing professional advice all the way through closing! I highly recommend Mike!!!

Customer Testimonial | Scott Lindenberg

Buyer Rating:

Scott is a fantastic realtor. He knows all the neighborhoods, houses, and markets. He has incredible knowledge about what to look for in a house and points out details and important facts that go unnoticed to most but are critical in buying or selling a home.

I was a first time home buyer, Scott not only helped me find my dream house, but helped me every step of the way through the process. He took what seemed like a daunting and intense experience and made it easy and was always there to answer any questions I may have had.

He has relationships all over the city and can connect you to anyone who can help guide you through the process, whether buying or selling. He answered calls day or night, and was always willing to meet and look at however many houses were necessary to make you feel comfortable.

I can't have a high enough recommendation.

Customer Testimonial | Sami Hashash

Seller Rating:

Sami Hashash was recommended to us by a business associate. Sami sold the home of this business associate and he recommended Sami to us.

The first time we met Sami, he was extremely polite, listened to our concerns and acted right away to sell the house. Living in PA, I was apprehensive about selling a home in South Carolina realizing we would not be talking face to face. Sami made it very simple. The sale took place after a a few phone calls, texts and emails. He sold the house in 3 days.

Highly recommend Sami if your planning on selling your home.

Over all sean always made me feel as if I was his only client. Very communicative, on time and efficient. Never did I have to question myself as if I was with the right realtor.

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!!!
