Ratings & Reviews

I wish there was only one word to describe my experience with Juanita, as it would make this review not so long. But since there isn't, I guess I best get at it.<br/><br/>Juanita worked with me for over four months, most of which was not devoted to closing on this particular property. In addition, the property in question does not reside in the counties in which Juanita specializes. Nonetheless, Juanita worked with me, and did so in a way that should be the dictionary definition of "customer service," "professionalism" and "realtor." Look up "Realtor" in the encyclopedia, and Juanita's picture should be there.<br/><br/>This particular deal was a foreclosure. While Juanita had a much better sense of the time and energy involved in closing on it, I was a bit less informed, especially as the process went on...and on...andddddd on. But Juanita was constantly updating me, requesting the necessary paperwork (and BOY was there paperwork!) and reminding me that all of that would be worth it in the end.<br/><br/>She was a huge encouragement to me as I was taking on an ambitious plan, especially in light of my wife's recent death from cancer. Also, Juanita was so communicative and informative, all the while making me feel as if I was her only client. She was patient, kind and professional.<br/><br/>Honestly, I don't know how she does it, but I will tell you in no uncertain terms that I really do not think I would be where I am with regards to this property if it wasn't for Juanita.<br/><br/>Further, I don't believe my experience with Juanita was an aberration. I believe that's how all of her customers get treated. So my advice to you is: trust Juanita, and I am confident that you will find her to be everything for you that she has been for me. I am so glad I hired her, and I believe you will feel the same.<br/><br/>If you have any specific questions or comments you'd like to make to me regarding this review and/or Juanita, feel free to e-mail me at RealEstate@isonews2.com.<br/><br/>Thanks, and Juanita for President! ;-)

Sold a Single Family home in 2012 in Stuart, VA.

I would highly recommend Juanita Morris as a realtor. She is reliable, honest, hardworking, and smart. She took a very complicated realty situation for me involving partition and made a good outcome of it at a good price. She had never been involved in something like this before, yet, she worked very hard to get us a buyer at a fair price. Juanita has vast knowledge of the realty business having been in business for nearly 30 years and that experience pays off for her clients. She can handle whatever your needs are from farm, home, land, rentals, whatever---Juanita is the realtor you want on your side. And you will not be disappointed. You can put your trust and faith in her. Juanita is a wonderful realtor. Hats off to Juanita Morris for the sale they handled for me---you are just fantastic!

Helped me rent a home in Peters Creek, Spencer, VA 24171.

Juanita Morris is a AWESOME realtor in our point of view. She was immediately responsive and has kept in constant contact with us when other realtors have not contacted us once they became aware of our situation. We had been looking for owner financing, renting, or leasing with the option to buy. Other realtors either did not get back with us because of our request or were quick to respond that the owners were not interested. This has not been the case with Juanita Morris, she has adopted us in our situation of needing to relocate. She has placed multiple feelers in the field and within 2 weeks has been able to assist us with finding a nice home. My wife and I have adopted her as our guardian angel, knowing that God has put her in our path when the situation began to look hopeless. We would gladly recommend her to anyone in any situation, especially as well as she has handled ours. She is wonderful, understanding and considerate in all circumstances. She has not once let us down. We have been in contact with her at least once a week since we first made connection. She has called us and emailed us and returned our calls, keeping us informed of what she was working on in our behalf. We told her that we were about to lose our home and she was very understanding. We told here we simply wanted to start over again and once again she was very understanding when other realtors have snubbed us and turned away and sense of hope or help. Juanita deserves an A+ in our book. She is superior and knows what it is and how to help anyone, we believe. God Bless Morris Realty, and we pray for increase in her assistance to others like unto ourselves. Kathy & Ben Baum

Thanks Kathy & Ben! I'm so glad that I and Morris Realty could help you in your efforts to relocate to the Blue Ridge mountains. Just because someone is experiencing a tough time right now doesn't mean that there aren't options for them. Everyone goes through stressful events at some point in their lives, but the key is to not give up and find good advice from knowledgeable people. Which is exactly what the two of you did. You were determined not to give up, so give yourself a lot of credit. We really enjoyed working with you guys. Thanks, Juanita (P.S. Don't you just love that old barn and the pasture view?)

Bought a home in 2012 in Mabry Mill, Meadows of Dan, VA 24120.

We found Juanita after many years of searching for mountain property in Virginia. The properties we considered in working with Juanita all had some unique or somewhat complicated issues and she was invaluable in navigating us through all of them. Unlike many agents, Juanita is "hands-on" all the time. She insists on complete and accurate research on any property, especially in reviewing the titles, easements, etc in the appropriate court house. She (like the attorney she recommended) does not tolerate surprises coming up at the last minute- which can many times kill a very good deal. She is thoroughly informed about all state real estate laws and makes a dedicated effort to stay current on those changing regulations. A very important quality to us was Juanita's knowledge of the area, her ability to advise and suggest negotiation tactics and her total responsiveness- always keeping us up to date on the status. We don't hesitate to recommend Juanita because she always treats you as if you are the only and most important client she is working with- an unusual quality in the business. Thanks, Juanita.

Thanks Jim & Ruth Ann! And yes, over the years I have spent some very long days and hours in the courthouse following back several complicated cases. Who knew that would hold me in such good stead in the future? I think I used everything I learned on your selected properties! In fact, your survey and easement records brought a whole new meaning to the Chinese proverb "may you live in interesting times". :) Really enjoyed working with you. Thanks, guys... P. S. Did the wild geese finally decide to build their nest on the rock island in your pond? That would be so cool to see!

Sold a home in 2012 in Mabry Mill, Meadows of Dan, VA 24120.

Juanita Morris has kept me informed about my property in Meadows of Dan, Virginia, for several years. Juanita was always respectful and helpful of any information that I wanted to know. When I did decide to sell my property, she was always timely with the paper work and worked in a manner which made me feel very much at ease. I knew she would do everything she could to get the best price she could and also to work with both parties in a very professional manner. I would definately call Juanita Morris for any future realty purchases.

Thank you so much, Karen! Working with you and Jim has been a pleasure. We were more than happy to help oversee your property in Floyd County for you. In fact, checking up on your farm was a fun break for us because we always got to have a nice ride on the Blue Ridge Parkway to get there. I have fond memories of having a couple of little picnics overlooking the creek there! Many thanks for the kind words, Juanita.
