Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $225K in Winston Salem, NC.
Despite having several friends in the real estate business, my wife and I decided to go with Blake after meeting him at an open house, and that was probably the best decision we made during the entire process. Blake did not pressure us to sign an exclusive agreement and allowed us to go at our own pace, even knowing that we didn't need to move and that we might just decide to stay put after looking around.

After we found a bank-owned property that we were interested in, Blake helped us craft an offer and understand the hurdles we were going to have to jump through with a foreclosure. With his help, we were able to put together an offer that the bank accepted without a counter (no, we didn't overpay - he just figured out the sweet spot where it wasn't worth their time to say anything but yes), which left us scrambling to get our home on the market. Despite listing a home in a neighborhood with larger homes at similar price points, Blake was able to find us a buyer within a week of putting the home on the market, and we were under contract in three weeks for 97% of asking price.

When things went crazy with our purchase just three days before closing (through no fault of his), Blake helped guide us through a highly stressful and chaotic week, and managed to get us to to the closing table with our sanity in check. The last few weeks of our journey were some of the worst of our lives (seriously, buying a foreclosure is hard!), but Blake was the voice of reason in the storm, giving us someone to turn to who we knew was giving us honest, good advice, and helping us understand exactly what needed to be done to move forward each day.

With the home buying and selling process in the rear view mirror, my wife and I couldn't imagine going through it with anyone else. We are certain that we made the right decision to use Blake as our realtor, and we know who we will be calling if we ever decide to sell the home that we just fought hard to purchase.

Blake's local knowledge and his deep understanding of the negotiation/due diligence process made us, as buyers, feel incredibly comfortable. We will certainly use him again, and highly recommend him.

As first time home buyers, Blake did a great job of educating and preparing us for the process. He allowed his schedule to be flexible and made us feel like a priority. In showings he pointed out things we may not have noticed but very much let us discover our own likes/dislikes in building the profile of our perfect home. His service did not, at all, diminish after we went under contract, as we still needed a fair amount of guidance. The relationships he and his firm have built with professionals in the home buying process were very valuable, and offered upon request, not at all pushed. As a sales professional, I will no doubt try and implement some of Blake's practices and skills into my own career.

Blake was wonderful from day one! He worked with us and showed us a ton of houses all over winston! Once we found our dream home he went above and beyond to help us put an offer in as soon as possible! He continues to be available all the time as we are moving through the closing process! As first time home buyers we were clueless but he helped us through the entire thing!

Blake guided us through our first home sale and was very helpful throughout the whole process. He directed traffic to our house and delivered on his promise to find the right buyer. I would definitely recommend Blake to anyone buying or selling property in the Triad.

We relied on Blake from start to finish to help us make certain decisions and to provide direction. When it came down to final negotiations, he was very responsive and his experience was invaluable. Thanks Blake

Bought a home in 2013.
As a first time home buyer, having Blake as our realtor was very helpful. No matter the hour Blake was responsive and willing to provide us with answers and his expertise. I would recommended Blake to anyone looking to buy a house as he is very knowledgeable and he always seems to know the right people to contact. I am very thankful to have had Blake helping me through out the process of buying my first home.

My husband and I decided to use Blake as our realtor after hearing wonderful reviews from some of our friends who had also used him. Honestly, I can say that we have never been happier with a realtor and we have bought and sold three different houses in three different cities over the past 12 years. Blake told us what needed to be done in order to sell our house quickly and he was spot-on…our house was under contract in a little over a week. Blake was always available to answer any questions or concerns, whether they were about the house we were selling or the one we were buying in South Carolina. He never seemed too busy to give us his full attention and dedication, which I truly appreciated. Even though selling a house can be extremely overwhelming and stressful, Blake made sure everything ran smoothly and the whole process was about as painless as it could be. I give him all the credit for that…he knows what he is doing and is a true professional. He is also a genuinely nice person and very easy to work with…definitely a top realtor in Winston-Salem!

Sold a home in 2013.
I had spoken with a few realtors and after talking with Blake, I decided he should be the one to sell my house. I had never been through this process before and the thought of it was a bit overwhelming to me. I had a LOT of questions but Blake patiently listened and provided the best, honest answers. If he was ever unsure about any detail, he would get back to me. He offered helpful advice and suggestions with no pressure. Blake remained very responsive and proactive the entire time the house was on the market. I was impressed with his knowledge of the area, honesty and expertise and would contact him again for any real estate needs.

We used Blake to do the purchasing of our home based on many, many glowing reviews on several realty sites that we have been using. I must say that we have been extremely satisfied and that the reviews don't quite do Blake justice.

He has been incredibly helpful in every aspect of our home purchase and in a very short time we actually have gone from being complete strangers to considering Blake a friend. My fiancé and I have even put him on our intimate wedding invite list and would consider it an honour if he could attend.

We would like to thank Blake and his staff for everything they have done and for helping our house hunting, decision and purchase easy and exciting, as it should be.
