I have worked with Fred on four residential projects in the past four y the am impressed with his interest the amount of support he brought to the projects to bring them to completion. Having gone through the entire purchase process on four properties, and then renovation of two of the historic properties, Fred has always gone out of his way to give me excellent advice, to share his knowledge, and to help me navigate some complex building permitting and inspection issues. His workmanship as a builder is careful, thoughtful and first class. Never argumentative, he is always thoughtful in all of his dealing with me, subcontractors and others he comes in contact with. He is a good communicator and follows ups, keeps his commitments and is on time with projects. If the opportunity presents itself, I would certainly work with him on another project and I recommend him to others.More Less
Fred was extremely helpful when my husband and I were searching for a lot in the SouthPort area. He is knowledgeable, patient and detail oriented. He went out of his way to uncover details that we would have overlooked and in addition to expediting the purchase process he made it easy for us so that we did not have to do any additional traveling. Thank you again Fred, we are very pleased with our purchase.More Less
Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $250K in Southport, NC.
When my wife and I traveled to Southport to investigate the area for a possible retirement place to live, we were fortunate enough to walk into Southport realty and be introduced to Fred Fiss.
From the minute we sat down to discuss our needs, I knew that Fred was the real estate person that I wanted to deal with. He was very supportive of our needs and knowledgable of the area and what it will offer us in the future.
We were not ready to make the move immediately and were on a fishing expedition
to see what was available and if we could afford living in Southport.
We have worked with other agents previously and soon realized the loss of interest on their part when we said we were not ready at this time.
To make a long story short, Fred Fiss stuck with us enthusiasticly for a year and a half before we closed on a property.
Fred made a some what difficult move for us a wonderful experience and continues to do so with his friendship.
Fred Fiss tends to his building business in the same manner which translates into outstanding, quality work in everything he oversees.
We recommend Fred to anyone looking to be treated to an experience in both a real estate purchase or looking for a quality builder.More Less
