Do You Have This Much Confidence In Your REALTOR®?
"If you are reading this, you're likely looking for a REALTOR® in Lubbock as I was in February 2010. I wanted to purchase a home for my son, who was starting law school at Texas Tech. I had never been to Lubbock before, and didn't know anyone in town.
The testimonials about Gary were great, and I was very pleased with my decision to go with Gary. When I arrived in Lubbock, there was nothing on the market that met my needs and budget. I spent two days with Gary looking at several properties and nothing was quite right.
During the two days with Gary, I was very impressed with his integrity and knowledge of the Lubbock market as well as his feel for what I wanted. My confidence in Gary was so strong, I told him that when the right house came on the market to let me know. About 3 weeks later, Gary called with the perfect house in a great neighborhood; and I bought it sight unseen based on Gary's recommendation.
Gary was not trying to tell me something; he was working to find what I wanted. Trudi is Gary's wife and partner. She's great, and gave me her thumbs up on the house as well.
I didin't see the house until a few weeks after closing, and it turned out even better than I pictured. I couldn't have been more pleased. Gary & Trudi happily helped out with much of the leg work before and after closing as I was nine hours away.
After graduation when selling time comes, I already have my listing agent along with new friends."
