Buyer Rating:

My agent, Deborah Richter is a real estate super hero! Being a first time homebuyer she saved me in so many ways! Right from the start she had our best interest at heart. She held my hand and guided me through this whole process, one I was extremely nervous about. Thanks to Deborah, she really took away all anxiety and made buying our first home fun! All I can say is that I could not be more pleased with my overall experience thanks to her! She deserves not only recognition for all of her hard work but maybe a superhero cape as well! Looking forward to sending all of my friends and family her way!!! Deborah Richter an all around amazing agent! - Amy Sutton, Charlotte August 2016

Elizabeth Bowden

Buyer Rating:

Beth was strongly recommended by a colleague and we absolutely agree with the assessment. Beth was a pleasure to work with. She was very patient with us even as the showings took longer because of the kids. At one point, she stayed outside to watch our kids sleeping in the car so that we could go look at a couple of houses. And she took the time to listen and understand our needs. That became very apparent when we got to one house that we instantly knew that we didn't like. Before we had a chance to tell her, she got out of her car and came to ours to let us know that she was going to cancel the showing because she could tell based on our needs that the house wouldn't work. Beth was truly our advocate throughout the process. We'd gladly work with her again and would definitely recommend her. - Yomi Oke, Huntersville, July 2016

Jay Buinicky

Robert Mays

Seller Rating:

Bob is A-MAYS-ING!!

He helped us to sell the same house we purchased through him in 2008. Both experiences were wonderful as Bob was so patient with us since we were first-time buyers and then first-time sellers. I'm not sure anyone else would have been so thorough in ensuring that we understood every step of the process. He was especially helpful in getting everything done and communicating with us since we live 9 hours away from the house we were selling.

Bob really does go above and beyond for his clients and I would recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat. Now...if only he were closer so he could help us buy a new house here in Maryland! - L. Jurca, Washington, D. October 2015

Richard Bowden

Seller Rating:

We chose Richard Bowden/Bowden Realty based on the outstanding service he had previously provided as our rental property manager.

Richard professionally navigated both sides of a complex transaction, ensuring our interests were continually represented in an honest and trustworthy manner. - Jon Strittmater, Charlot September 2015

Suzanne Phythian

Buyer Rating:

Previously Suzanne Phythian helped us to rent a house in Charlotte. We were new in the area, coming from another state, and she was instrumental in her knowledge of the area and very effective on sharing her resources to help us find a property in Ballentyne, for a reasonable monthly rent. When we decided to buy a house, we contacted Suzanne and explained our specific needs. She again put her knowledge, resources, and professional skills to our services, in a timely manner, with a caring attitude. Suzanne went far and beyond to support us in the very stressful process of the closing.

It is fair to say that we just reach our goal due to Suzanne's support and availability. We already recommended Suzanne Phythian to family and friends.

Thank you so much. - The Marques, Charlotte, August 2015

Deborah Richter

Buyer Rating:

I chose Deborah because she is an experienced realtor who would be able to help us through this entire journey. I wanted a realtor that would have had a been there, done that platform. It has been a long time since we bought/sold a house. It comforted my that whatever would arise Deborah would have most likely dealt with that situation before and would be able to help. I felt we bombarded her with lots of questions. And she was able to answer each one. It was also an added bonus that she lived in my neighborhood.

Whenever I had a question. Deborah was quick to answer. I never had to wait longer than a few minutes for a response. - Kelly Pierson, Waxhaw, N May 2016
