What do Clients Say?

Charles Mortimer; I would like to recommend the above-mentioned Realtor® to anyone who is looking to sell his/her home. Charles was honest and patient with us, in advertising and negotiating with the buyer's agent. Charles was looking out for ourselves from the beginning. He is trustworthy and honest and very patient with us. Yours faithfully, Mele T.

You and your staff should be proud of the fast sale and how painless it was for us. Better late than never, I’ve been told. So both my wife Barbara, and I, want to thank you and your staff, for helping us sell our home in Hayward, CA. You made the process so simple for us. You and your staff should be proud of the fast sale and how painless it was for us. We have told our friends that live in Hayward to contact you if they want to sell their home. We do have some friends that will be selling in a couple of years and will be in the process of selling their home. Feel free to use this letter for any prospective clients you may have. Once again let me thank you for your excellent work on our behalf. Don & Barb

The best Real Estate Team in the business! Please enjoy this small token of our appreciation for all the hard work everyone did in selling our home. I told Charles at the beginning that I thought I was fully capable of handling everything on my own, but I now see how wrong I was. This sale would have never have closed without all of your extraordinary efforts. Tim & Nancy

From a Realtor®; Your professionalism, experience, and integrity I have all good things to say about my first closed transaction. I haven’t been licensed for long and our transaction was officially my first official close of escrow as a licensed agent. I am an investor myself so although I am familiar with the process this was the first for another. For this particular client, this was the 5th property that we offered. What I really want to say is that the more agents I came in contact with time the more I was shocked by poor practices and unprofessional behavior. I was very pleasantly suppressed and very grateful that our transaction ended up stopping at your door. You made my first escrow experience a very positive one and I can’t thank you enough. I was sure with the way things were going with other agents that my first transaction was going to be a “doozy” but because of your professionalism, experience, and integrity, I have all good things to say about my first closed transaction.

I want to thank you so much for all you did to sell my house and so quickly. I know you worked hard for me. You did the work of both Realtors®, again I thank you. I talked to my neighbor in the apartments next door and she said that they have not moved in yet and that they are doing a lot of things to the house, they tore out the whole kitchen. They removed all the brick in the back yard. She said they are extending the house 8 ft. outward and putting on a pitched roof. I do miss living there; I wish I was still there. Well thank you again and I wish you and your family well. Linda.
