Rod has gone above and beyond helping us find a new home here in North Carolina. We were looking at homes over a huge area between Raleigh and Fayetteville and he would drive all over the place to let us view the houses, even at the last minute.
We would say the biggest help was when we decided on a house, Rod gave us so many great recommendations on contractors and places in the area. Being from out of town it was hard to not have a network, but Rod stepped in and gave us great contacts.
When my husband and I were ready to start the process of finding and purchasing our first home, a family member recommended Rod.
Right from the beginning, we were extremely impressed with how quickly he responded and took the time to find out what we wanted (and helped us figure it out, since we've never done this before!). We had a general idea of areas we wanted to look but Rod helped us narrow it down after giving area info. He was amazing at working with our crazy schedules to show us houses and sign paperwork.
We ended up actively looking for about 3 months until we found our perfect house. He helped us negotiate and kept us abreast of what was going on every step of the way.
I can't say enough good things about Rod and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home!
My wife and I were in the process of purchasing our first home and we knew absolutely nothing about buying a house. Rod made everything easy and went above and beyond for us. First, when we were looking for homes we had a small puppy that was still too young to board and he allowed our little guy to come along with us in his car while we looked at houses. A huge help!
Second, I have to say that Rod was a guide. He told us the ins and outs of the process and never tilted his advice toward a house that cost more or was larger just to inflate his own commission. He gave us his objective opinions when we asked for them and even helped my wife pick out cabinets, carpets, and fixtures for the house.
Third, my wife and I lived about an hour away from the city where we were making our purchase. Rod arranged convenient meeting times with anyone that we needed to meet with so that we could make less trips and work around our schedules. He helped us find independent inspectors and other service companies that we needed. He also went by our new house while it was being built so that we could get updates and he even sent us pictures through email so we could see how things were progressing.
Fourth, during the process my wife and I went through a lot of hiccups concerning our mortgage company. Rod was our rock. He kept us focused and was the one stable person that we could look to for help. I honestly do not believe that we would be living in our dream home if Rod was not our Realtor. He always answers his phone and emails or responds very promptly. We worked with him for a total of three months and I can honestly say that we have nothing negative to say about his performance.
He is a true professional and brings great credit upon himself and his profession.
