" I had been out of the real estate
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
for many years. From what I'm seeing on this form that I am filling out for Angie's List, this will appear to be a comment about "
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
".. What I learned is that there are a number of fairly independent "teams" who are
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
agents, but who do not work so much as a single agency team as I had experienced some years ago. I do not know whether this is now common among all agencies, but I would suggest for anyone thinking of selling, that they actually spend some time with several individual agents, at the home they are hoping to sell, before they commit.
All's well that ends well. I said to many friends that I was anxious to get the house sold, and I knew that my agent was anxious to make a sale, in a very difficult
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
, and there were times it felt like a "bad echo chamber". My house had what many saw as a good location (walk to elementary, middle and high schools; close to but not on a bus line; easy walk to the community pool; in an established well cared for neighborhood) and a number of unique features (it had been built as a "Parade of Homes" home in the mid sixties, and we had added a number of upgrades: hardwood floors, modern kitchen; a bay window in what had been a
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
wall in the master bedroom, as well as a number of windows across the back of the house that opened up the family and informal dining area, a large, quality, finished rec room in the basement.)
Additionally we had invested thousands of dollars in landscaping, creating both a woodland garden under large old established trees along one side of the house, and a well planned perennial garden in the back. Through the six months, I never felt that my agent had any appreciation for any of the plantings. In a falling
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
, he continued to point out what he saw as little flaws inside the house as he urged me to lower the asking price. Had I talked with several agents, I might have found one who recognized value in the landscaping which could have been more of a selling point, but I cannot say that he or she would have had any greater success finding a buyer. So again, all's well that ends well.

"We started going to a few open houses in June. We were first time home buyers, so we didn't really understand the process. After a few weeks, I found
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
on First
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
's website and called her because she had excellent testimonials on the website. I also chose
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
because the
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
location of her office was convenient to our home and work. After a few trips out to look at houses, she asked us to sign a buyer's agency agreement with her. We had some reservations, just because we were still a little unsure about the process and didn't know her all that well yet. Our main concern was if we were unhappy with the arrangement, could we get out of it. She said that we could, but that she had never had anyone want to terminate the agreement early. The agreement did not increase our costs since the buyer's agent commission is paid by the seller.
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
did a lot of database searching for us, set up all the appointments, and drove us to almost all of them. She was always very professional. She helped us put together offers on four houses and a counter offer on the house we bought. She also gave us sound advice on the other offers (for example: seller may not be very motivated = will want their asking price; short sale without an inspection carries a lot of risk, get your own inspection even if the seller has already had their own inspection [don't know the objectivity of the seller's inspection or if repairs were completed properly]). After our offer was accepted,
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
worked with our lender to make sure that they had all the documents they needed, set up the inspection, final walk-through and closing, and helped us arrange the purchase of furniture from the sellers. She also sent out change of address postcards to our family and friends for us.
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
far exceeded our expectations. She was very easy to work with and was responsive to our attitude toward the process (easy going and willing to wait for the house that is right for us). Importantly, I never felt any pressure from her to do anything. She gave advice when we asked for it, but never pressured us to take her advice or rushed us into any decisions. She was patient with us even after about 40 houses. I would highly recommend
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
as a buyer's agent. She was great!

"We can't say enough about
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
. She went above and beyond any job description of a Realtor - she truly became a friend! We moved to Wisconsin from California in September 2007. We knew literally nothing about the area, including things like where safer neighborhoods were. On a weekend trip here to research this information, I met
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
at an Open House. I was specifically interviewing each of the Realtors I met at different Open Houses because I knew we would ultimately purchase a home here. Since we had a house for sale at the time in California, we needed to rent a place before we could buy.
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
immediately struck me as experienced, knowledgeable, and professional. She took me to see 10 homes that week, just to show me what to expect in the area.
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
kept track of us the whole time we were still in California. She sent us listings of rentals, and even went as far as to visit one of the places for us! Once we got here, she patiently waited as we experienced ups and
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
in the sale of our home. We visited numerous houses (more than I can count), and put an offer on three. Because of various external reasons, none of these offers went through. It was a pain, but
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
was professional with both us and the selling agents the whole time. Even though we thought we knew where we wanted to live,
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
had grown to know us on a personal level, and could anticipate some of our desires before even WE knew of them! She ultimately showed us a fabulous house with qualities we didn't know we wanted, in a fantastic neighborhood that we had never heard of, with great neighbors - it was perfect for us!
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
worked diligently with us for over a year, was never once rude or impatient with us, always anticipated our needs, and ultimately got us a great house. We can't recommend this fantastic woman enough.

"We heard about
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
Company
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
from a friend, and it turns out that most of their business comes to them from word-of-mouth rather than advertising. We decided to try them out, and after the initial visit we were immediately impressed with
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
's low-key and friendly attitude which matched ours quite well. She seemed like someone who doesn't have to have a lot of flash, because she knows her profession very well and is comfortable with people. After agreeing to use her services, she began sending us house offerings which fit within our parameters around town. When we saw one we wanted to examine, we just emailed or called her and set up a visit. She was available most of the time we were, evenings and weekends. Occasionally she brought her young daughter with her because of the lack of babysitting, but this did not happen often and wasn't a problem when it did. (This was in 2007.) We searched many houses over perhaps 2 months before we found the one we really liked. Then she worked with us and the other agent to get a good offer on the house and jump through the hoops of inspection, obtaining a mortgage, and checking the legalese. This took another month or so. Then we jumped to the closing date a couple months later and moved in a month after that. I suppose the process was pretty quick for us, but she mentions having some clients who searched for years for the right home, and she was fine with that. The company website explains the "anatomy of a purchase" clearly, which was also helpful for techie-type new house buyers."

I was able to visit for several days in April (during a late Spring snowstorm) and she had lots of appointments set up for me and was tireless in the face of poor weather. I had to make offers on 3 different properties before I settled on the right one, and she and her husband

"If you want a second mother and want to be treated like a child, she's the landlord for you!
My husband and I recently rented a house from
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
over the past year. We needed to rent a house during our relocation to
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
. We had previously owned our own home for 5 years, are in our thirties and are working professionals.
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
knew all of this when we signed the contract. Instead of being treated like the responsible adults that we are,
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
proceeded to treat us like a couple of undergraduates who might trash the rental property. We were bombarded with email after email about how to properly care for the rental and as well as other motherly advice such as "http sites are not secure, only https sites should be used to send credit card information." We didn't belong on her email list. To make it worse, the emails were sent in a format that resembled texting a close friend. She requested to begin showing the house to prospective renters for the next year earlier than we had agreed to. We were kind enough to let her show the house early. Because we have dogs, we had to be home to take the dogs out every time there was a showing. She often canceled at the last minute and showed up over 30 minutes after the agreed upon time, leaving us and the prospective renters waiting. We made several improvements to the house while we were there such as attending to severely neglected flower beds and replacing a shower head when it began to spray to prevent damage to the drywall. When it came time to move out, we had the carpet professionally cleaned, and left the house cleaner than it was when we moved in. Apparently, this did not meet
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
's standards. Instead of sending a report, she began to send us blurry pictures, one by one, of unidentified areas that
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
didn't think were clean enough. For instance, the small amount of lint that stays on the
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
of the dryer lint trap after you've cleaned the lint trap, was an area of concern for
Madison Real Estate Agents Provider Name Locked
. Over 1300 square feet of house and this is what she had to complain about. We did address her concerns so that we could receive our security deposit. Even though she asked for our new address twice, she still sent it to the rental address, where we were no longer living. She was completely unprofessional throughout the entire process and we are relieved to be done with her "services."
