Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Pineville, NC.
I would highly recommend Don Anthony Realty for anyone thinking of selling their home. Don and his staff were very professional and responded to calls and emails almost immediately. Once our house was under contract, Don and his team worked with me on a daily basis to make sure all of my questions were answered. I am so glad we chose Don Anthony Realty to sell our home!

Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2013 in Pittsboro, NC.
Whew... where to begin?

1. DAR should mention in their marketing that they don't actually do anything to attract buyers other than waiting for people who see the marketing to contact them. Very disappointed to learn than DAR does not network with local Realtors (Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill) and it is this one reason that our home did not receive even one offer while listed with DAR.

2. The time it takes to get a response from DAR drops exponentially once the initial fee has been paid and the listing is 'live'. I sometimes waited over a week to hear back from DAR when I sent very important questions/information to DAR.

3. DAR does nothing to help the seller if the seller disagrees with DAR and the approach to take selling the home. DAR is not interested in working with the seller to find a 'better way' but instead dictates exactly what they will do without possible deviation from their plan.

4. DAR talks a big game about their marketing coverage and how it is superior to the competition but when asked for a specific list of all marketing efforts to sell our home, such a list was not provided and in fact DAR discouraged us from asking about the details of the marketing. We felt they were saying 'trust us, we know best' when in fact they couldn't even attract one buyer to submit an offer for our home.

5. We never received updates about why our home was not showing, suggestions to modify our selling strategy or any in-depth analysis of the current marketing plan in an effort to attract more potential buyers.

6. I could go on but you get the idea... buyer beware, DAR is no better than any other Realtor out there. They want to make money without working hard and they believe they have a superior plan to market homes when the fact is their marketing is no better than any other realty company.

I'm sorry this client did not have a positive experience with us, as that is unusual. It seems this client feels that real estate has not changed since the Internet became widely available. You can look on this site and see the homes we've sold in just the last 12 months, so it is clear that what we do works very well. If our clients want to add marketing to get their home sold, they can. We are happy to provide our clients a list of our marketing efforts and all the details. Due to the number of clients we serve, sometimes our clients leave a message for us, and our response generally happens within hours, not days. I wish that we could make all of our clients happy, but sometimes it is not possible. Our advertising is superior to most other agents, our fee is much lower, and we sell many more homes. The evidence shows that Don Anthony Realty is, in fact, better than most Realtors out there. Thank you for the opportunity to respond. - Don, Owner / Broker, Don Anthony Realty

Sold a Townhouse home in 2013 for approximately $225K in Cary, NC.
Our daughter and son-in-law sold their house using a Listing-only service and the financial advantage was obvious, but it did leave them with a lot of the follow up work to do for themselves. When subsequently we decided to move, we decided we would need a little more guidance than they did . We first of all approached a local realtor who offered a low fee / full service but were put off by their initial tardiness. After a week we had not made contact with a real person, and we felt that if that was the standard of their service before we signed up, what could we expect subsequently. We therefore searched the web and came across Don Anthony Realty’s site which offered the same service but at a still lower fee. Somewhat skeptically we telephoned and spoke to Don Anthony himself who quickly summarized the scheme and apologized because he was only able to get an agent to meet with us in two days’ time. Dan arrived on the appointed day and talked us through the contract and sorted out the photos and details for the listing. Our listing went live and that same day we received our first offer, albeit a lowball one. Showings occurred very frequently after that, and within two weeks we had accepted one of two further offers that had been made. Andrew from the support team talked us through the negotiation process and answered all our questions either by phone or email often late into the evening. There was also a very good Question and Answer database online which took us step by step through all the procedures related to the sale. The contract was checked by the team before we received it, and we were constantly updated about the buyer’s appraisal, home inspection, etc and given positive advice about our options. Our HUD settlement statement arrived via Email two days before closing, again with comments from Don Anthony’s team, and this gave us plenty of time to check the figures before we went to the attorney. We arrived in the certain knowledge that had there been anything untoward, Don Anthony’s team would have made us aware of it. Closing went without a hitch, and before we knew it we were on the road to our new destination just two months after listing. So if like us initially you are skeptical about the service, put those fears aside because we can report that we received a 110% service from this fine team and trust their presence in the area will be significantly increased.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $250K in Charlotte, NC.
When we decided to sell our home we knew we would be counting every penny to be able to get in to our new home. I researched online and looked for discounted realtors and found Don Anthony. The listing process was very simple and everything we needed. Very quick and to the point. We listed on Tuesday morning and were negotiating between 4 offers over the weekend. Don Anthony was on the phone with us Friday, Saturday and Sunday night talking us through the process. Could not be more pleased with the outcome. We also decided to buy our new home through them and saved an additional $500.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $175K in Harmony, NC.
I recently sold my home using Don Anthony Realty. I was extremely happy with their service and saved close to $4,000 in commissions by using Don Anthony Realty rather than a typical "full service" broker. From the time I listed until the time I closed on the sale Don Anthony Realty provided excellent and professional service. They were right on top of everything when an offer was made on my house and ensured that all legal forms were completed properly. The offer and subsequent counter offers were submitted to me and the buyer promptly without undue delays. I preferred to contact Don Anthony via e-mail and any question that I submitted was responded to within an hour and most times even sooner. This was the seventh home that I have bought or sold during my lifetime and Don Anthony Realty's service exceeded all other typical full commission brokers that I have used in the past. During this difficult housing market when profit margins are slim or non-existent, it does not make sense to use a typical full commission broker when there is a company like Don Anthony Realty that will provide equal or better service while at the same time saving a seller thousands of dollars in reduced commissions. I could not be more pleased with my experience using Don Anthony Realty to sell my home and would highly recommend them to anyone thinking of selling their homes.

We would like to thank Don Anthony for saving us over $6300.00 on the sale of our house. This was the second time we have used their services for selling our house. Don's agents were always available for questions and this last one we had to go under contract while living in a different state.

They helped us negotiate verbally before signing the final contract. It was very helpful and made the process go very smooth.

Any one that needs a house sold, should call Don Anthony.

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Hillsborough, NC.
We had a great experience with Don Anthony Realty. An agent met with us and got the ball rolling very quickly. We had lots of activity within the first couple of weeks and an offer just after 3 weeks. Don's office did a great job of helping us through the negotiating process and we were able to close within 2 months of when we listed! We really appreciated the service and saved over $5,000. We would definitely list with Don Anthony again!

Sold a Condo home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Provincetowne, Charlotte, NC.
This is the second real estate transaction that I have sold through Don Anthony Realty and it could not have been easier. He has an excellent system that is so efficient. Both transactions were very positive experiences. There was so much communication from Don Anthony Realty. I was selling a house from the West Coast and I always knew what was going on. Don gave me so much personal attention and I saved a lot of money in commission. I don't know how he does it for so little cost. I think this guy is a real estate genius!
