Ivan shares a contagious level of energy and optimism, loves the outdoors and can be found cycling our greenways, dining out with his family and kayaking the beautiful Neuse River.
Ivan was an outstanding agent who worked hard throughout the entire process, and it paid off! He got my home sold above the price I was hoping for, and on schedule. He spent significant time to help stage, have professional photos taken, and then worked with the agents representing the multiple offers that came in. Ivan ensured that each step of the way I was taken care of, and I would absolutely recommend him!
This is my 4th real estate venture with Ivan Hovis-Gobern and his colleague Tina Hilker. They give 110% all the time and make it happen within 29 hrs of seeing s townhouse, we agreed on an offer, submitted it abd had the contract and closed in less than 5 weeks. They are perfection and a team to work with . If I didn't trust them I wouldn't have used them for the 4th time. You wont be disappointed.
Ivan and Tina make a great team. Their responsiveness to questions and skills in negotiating are great. They do a great job at answering all of your questions in a timely manner and make mole hills out of any mountains should they arise. Would recommend them to any one looking to buy or sell a house.
