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 | Scott Lindenberg

Buyer Rating:

As a first time homebuyer I was incredibly nervous and I had no idea what I was getting into. I had so many questions and Scott Lindenburg really took the time to answer all of them. He was communicative and even answered my frantic texts well after "business hours". He was a delight and helped us negotiate an awesome deal on our home. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy, but especially to first time buyers. He never made me feel like I was asking "silly" questions and he talked us through the entire process step by step so I could be confident when it came to closing.

Customer Testimonial | Sami Hashash

Seller Rating:

Sami Hashash worked diligently to get my house sold. This was paramount from me as an overseas investor. One of the best agents I've ever worked with. He has an unwavering positive attitude towards all hurdles he faced. Would recommend him to anyone wanting to buy or sale their home.

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!!!
