APPRECIATED TESTIMONIALS FROM VERY NICE CLIENTS:
“Best Realtor I’ve had. Period. Lance went way above & beyond the call of duty throughout the relocation process. I would recommend him to anyone moving to the area.” --Mark & Darci M.
"Thank you for all your hard work. Your willingness to go "above and beyond" has been very impressive. Your promptness in responding to me has been GREAT! I so appreciate your communications. With other agency/agents, my price range would probably not get the attention and care you have given." -- Pam H.
“During holiday in South Carolina, U.S.A., we saw a property which we foresaw could be the ideal retirement home for my wife Madeline and I. On contacting the real estate company, we were introduced to Mr Lance Brown who agreed to act for us in our negotiations with the property’s owners. Mr Brown proved a real asset and through his expertise we were able to close on the deal within the three week period of my holiday there. As you might appreciate, we were completely in the dark over how to proceed with purchase of a property in the United States and Mr Brown lead us through the procedures, explaining every aspect of what had to be done and ensuring that all the necessary checks were completed. As a result we were able to complete the deal on our way to the airport at Charlotte on our scheduled return home to the United Kingdom. We?are hopeful of eventually being able to settle permanently in the United States and we would use Mr Brown in any property dealings that we might care to undertake. For the record, I am 59 years of age, a retired Chief Inspector of Police with the Norfolk Constabulary in the United Kingdom. I would be happy for anyone wanting additional information to contact me.” --Barrie & Madeline C. M.
"We had been looking for 2 years and Lance found us the house of our dreams at a below market price. He returned phone calls, kept us informed and stayed in contact. We recommend him to anyone."--Floyd & Liz H.
“I am impressed with the feeling that I am dealing with someone that really seems to care. That is hard to find these days. I couldn't have searched the world over and had found anyone that did a better job than you did in helping me find my property. Thank you very very much for your contribution. It's been a delightful experience. I will try to use you in the future. I hope you have success in your real estate adventures." -- David D.
“Dear Lance, I wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I appreciate all the work you did for me in the purchase of my home. It was quite a trying and emotional experience for me but you remained calm throughout the process and persevered on my behalf. Thank you for seeing the big picture and keeping all the parties involved on task. I’ve been in the house for three months now and am loving every day. Thanks so much for all your hard work.” -- Leslie M.
“Lance, I just wanted to take time to thank you and everyone there. As you know buying a home can be a stressful time with many headaches and worries. But you and the rest of the team helped so much and made this buying experience very enjoyable. Thanks for all your help and we will be looking forward to any future dealings we might have. Adele just loves the place and is making it a home instead of just a house. Thanks again Lance for all the help and God Bless.” -- Brian & Adele J.
"Mr. Brown went above and beyond in dealing with us as a purchaser. We came in on an open house and did not have other representation. He was very helpful to put this deal together for us. We would definitely use him again and recommend him!" -- Sue & Mark M.
"I have felt very comfortable with you and appreciate your diligent efforts to sell the property. Your strong attributes are that you are very personable, give the impression that you are "up front" with people, honest and have good follow through. You have a very earnest approach with clients as well. I would speak very highly of your representation. I will seek out the same realty company in Florida since my dealings with you have been so positive."-- Carole R.
“To Broker: We have been so pleased with Lance’s service that we wanted to make you aware of all he has done to make our experience with your agency a good one. Lance went the "extra mile" on numerous occasions to ensure that we got the right and best house for our needs. He attended to so many details for us from inspections to offers to the closing. This was especially important since we were living over 6 hours away. We have bought a number of homes over the years. We can honestly say that Lance is the best, most attentive realtor that we have ever engaged. We would highly recommend him to anyone seeking to buy or sell property.” -- J. Calvin W.
“Dear Lance, Just a note to thank you both for the special touches you added to the experience of the purchase of our new home. Things finally took a pleasant path when we were introduced to you. Not only were you both very professional, but you had that extra special way of making us feel you were only taking care of us?and our needs and no question was too dumb or any request too big. You were so down to earth with us and we consider the experience a pleasant and memorable one. We hope to pass on the good experience that we had with you to anyone in need of a Realtor. Much success to you.” -- Jerry & Deborah S.
“This was our first time buying a house and Lance made it easy. We had no idea of what to do or expect and Lance handled and talked us through everything. Thanks so much and we will definitely refer you to friends and family.”-- Neil & Amber H.
"Back in October, my wife and I decided to look for some investment property and a place for our daughter to move into. Residing in Hawaii we surfed the web and contacted various listing agents. This is when we had the fortune of contacting Lance. Lance had that reassuring, trusting way about him that made us comfortable. He contacted the kids and took them to see various listings that covered miles and hours. This was beyond what we were expecting, given the price range we were looking at. Once we finally found the property, we were pleasantly surprised that all the steps were handed to us and mostly handled by Lance. Their concierge list was a blessing and their followup was impressive. Given the distance and the challenges given to us by the bank (seller) for time, we were able to get it done. This is a testament to Lance. I want to take this opportunity to thank and recommend his services. Aloha from Hawaii.” -- Kevin and Letitia R.
“We had been working with another Realtor for over a year and found that we were doing all the work. Every weekend we wasted hours driving around searching for the perfect house in the perfect neighborhood. Then we met with Lance. Within the week he had found us exactly what we were looking for! One month later we moved in to our new home and we love it!" --Derek & Colleen D.
“Dear Lance, I don't know how I can thank you for all you've done for me, but I'm going to try. From our very first contact via email I knew I could trust you. You didn't let me down. Buying a house, literally over the internet, was very scary, but you made it so easy and accommodated me in every way possible. You sent pictures and advice, forms to fill out with instructions and even Skyped a tour of the house with me. You spent hours of time explaining everything until I understood it and answered all of my questions to my complete satisfaction. I would never have been able to find and buy my house in South Carolina from New York without all of your tireless effort and support. I was especially impressed with your honesty and forthrightness. It is a rare commodity in this day and age and I want you to know how much I appreciated it. I recommended you to my daughter who is also buying a house in South Carolina from New York and she is delighted with your work. She is currently in contract with a house she and her family fell in love with, thanks to your skillfulness. Soon our family will be together with many thanks to you and your team. I feel I've made a friend. Thank you from the bottom of my heart." -- Elaine F.
