Client Testimonial

SOLDphotoRealty World Neighbors–May and Jones Group Client Testimonial
(2014)   Ten years ago when my father passed away, my sisters and I decided to sell his home.  Anna May was referred to us by a trusted friend.  We engaged her services and she turned a difficult process into a seemingly simple manner.  It went quickly and without problems.

Recently my mother passed away and when we decided to sell her condominium, we immediately thought of Anna.  As in the past, Anna brought her professionalism, kindness, experience and good humor to guide us through the process.  Anna was able to look at the Condo and help us make decisions on how to prepare the unit either by ourselves or through her vast array of contacts.

Anna was able to explain all the paperwork and legalities in a clear, simple manner.  When deciding on a price to set for the condominium, she was able to show us all of the local comparable properties and explain how our unit compared and why she recommended a target price.  Very straight forward and logical.  She has been selling homes in the area for at least the 10 years that we have known her and given her performance, I anticipate she will be around a lot longer.

Aside from her work as a REALTOR, she has been an extremely active community member supporting local causes (including dogs in need) and participating in local politics to ensure that her neighborhood is well taken care of. I am deeply grateful to Anna for all that she has done for us in selling our homes and I wholeheartedly recommend her to you.
Sincerely,
Bob White
“We certainly appreciate the kind words in your client testimonial and getting return business from happy clients!  Thanks, Bob, for hiring us again to assist you!  It was our pleasure to help you”.

REALTORS®, acting as listing brokers, have an affirmative obligation to
disclose the existence of dual or variable rate commission
arrangements (i.e., listings where one amount of commission is
payable if the listing brokerʼs firm is the procuring cause of sale/lease
and a different amount of commission is payable if the sale/lease
results through the efforts of the seller/landlord or a cooperating
broker). The listing broker shall, as soon as practical, disclose the
existence of such arrangements to potential cooperating brokers and
shall, in response to inquiries from cooperating brokers, disclose the
differential that would result in a cooperative transaction or in a
sale/lease that results through the efforts of the seller/landlord. If the
cooperating broker is a buyer/tenant representative, the buyer/tenant
representative must disclose such information to their client before the
client makes an offer to purchase or lease.
