The "Coate Connection" did a great job in helping us to find the right Condo that fit our needs. Being out of town we really relied on them to understand and choose the right Properties to preview while on our vacation. Sure enough in 2 days we were able to make our decision in where we wanted to purchase our Condo with no vacation interruption. They were right on with fitting our needs. Some realtors you only find in themselves Salesmen but we were able to go beyond that and find as our Friends. We look forward to being able to use the "Coate Connection" for future Real Estate needs. Anyone would be lucky to land such Great Realtors as David and Virginia. We again Thank you for helping us and making us so happy.
Virginia and David Coate are good with identifying people's real estate needs plus assisting with property selection and analysis.
We first came to Gulf Shores to look for property in 2011. I did internet research using this site. For the properties we decided to visit, the Coate Connection was our choice. We liked their online footprint; plus, it's wonderful to see a wife and husband working happily together.
On our first visit, David showed several properties. So many that we privately wondered if he would stop and let us look on our own again. But no, he stuck with us, even when we changed our minds at least four times over the four-day searching.
During the next year, David kept us informed of houses that fit our needs. When the final time came, he helped us make the best choice. We could not be happier with his coaching and advice. He is patient, kind, understanding, and knowledgeable. David and Virginia's communication skills are great. Trust is always the big deal and we found that their best trait of all.
In the end, David's advice was right on the money. Since we were not moving for at least a year or two, he suggested we consider beachfront property - something furthest from our mind and budget. This worked out beautifully as we can offset ownership costs and also have a place to stay during visits.
We're on board with them for our future plans and recommend this team for your real estate needs.
Was a wonderful experience. Extremely helpful. Answered any and all questions. As we live quite a distance from the property, Mr Coate, went to a number of properties and took pictures and emailed them to me. When I was able to travel to the location, he took time and showed me multiple units, organized the viewings to fit with my tight schedule.
