I met Garth Williams completely by chance one afternoon. I mentioned to him that I was planning to put my house on the market, and he offered me one of his business cards. Knowing that Long and Foster was a reputable company, I felt comfortable as we started talking about the wonderful features of my home and neighborhood. After a brief tour, he said he thought my house would surely sell quickly and offered to be my listing agent. I accepted, and am so very glad I did!
Throughout the whole process Garth was a pleasure to work with. He was always very positive and encouraging, and I was confident that he was working for me at all times. He made sure I read through everything and understood what I was reading. When I had questions, he patiently explained things until he was sure I understood. As we looked at the market together, he gave me intelligent advice about setting a price, which I thought to be very fair for my neighborhood.
Garth enthusiastically went straight to work getting my house on the market. He hired a professional photographer to help give prospective buyers get a true sense of the house by being able to see the floor plan and show the house to its best advantage. He canvassed the surrounding neighborhoods to invite people to open houses, which attracted a lot of attention. He reached out to other agents who were selling homes in my neighborhood and worked with them to keep the market fair.
Circumstances required me to relocate before there was an offer on the house. I had faith that Garth would continue to work just as hard for me, and he did. Shortly after I left, an offer was made on the house, and I accepted. As the closing date neared, he was in constant contact with me. At my request he found a roofer, a handyman and painters to help with the buyers’ concerns about a few minor issues before closing. I was so very thankful that I had chosen Garth to be my realtor as he went above and beyond on so many occasions. I highly recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling a home. Whether you hire Garth Williams as you’re selling or buying agent, you will be working with a true professional.
