Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $150K in Blairsville, GA.
While Mr. Chesser's friendliness and eagerness to help us find a home seemed reassuring when we first approached him, the process ended up feeling as if tasks were haphazardly completed and leaving us feeling that we had an agent who didn't care to do the job. We were not advised to negotiate, nor shown any list of comparable sales to reassure us that this was a fair price. Mr. Chesser was unfamiliar with Rural Development loan process.

I strongly disagree with this review. First, I have NEVER failed to advise my Buyer Clients to negotiate on any property. That is simply ridiculous! Negotiation skills are vastly important and I take that part of my job seriously! Second, if I was asked to provide comps, I would have provided them. In a rural area, such as this, finding comps can be difficult, but I do provide them when asked! Furthermore, as this must have been a USDA Loan, I ALWAYS make sure to include an Appraisal Contingency in EVERY offer, whether there is a loan involved or not, just to be certain that my Client is not paying too much for the home, and is protected! Third, I am not a Mortgage Officer but I have closed many USDA loans in my 24 year career and am as familiar as any Realtor can be with them. If there is something I do not know, I have no problem calling the Mortgage Officer to get any question answered.

Bought a home in 2011.
My wife and I were interested in buying a home in the Blairsville area and met Lester through a listing he had on the internet. From the moment we met Lester, we both had an immediate feeling of relief and confidence and knew he was the right fit for us. His knowledge of Blairsville and the surrounding areas was amazing. After looking at over 20 homes we ended up purchasing the very first one he showed us. It was a bank owned property that needed some repairs which made the deal a little complicated. Lester demonstrated impressive hard nosed negotiating skills putting our interests first instead of pressing for a sale. He was also able to pair us with a contractor that was perfect for the job. The repairs were completed timely and of the highest quality. We would highly reccommend Lester and consider him a friend.

Bought a home in 2011.
My family and I had the privilege of working with Lester to purchase an absolutely beautiful piece of property in a very desirable area. During the period when we were shopping around for the best real estate to fit our needs and budget, Lester was able to search properties for us and send us information on properties that would best suit our needs. When it was time to make an offer, Lester was able to negotiate and obtain a fair price for the property we purchased. Lester’s knowledge of the real estate market and experience is evident in his professional conduct. I would highly recommend Lester to anyone who is buying or selling real estate. He is an honest hard work agent who is trustworthy and genuinely cares about his clients.

Bought a Single Family home in 2012 for approximately $175K in Blairsville, GA.
I visited Blairsville GA with the intention of buying a vacation house I met Lester at Blairsville Realty. I was interested in a foreclosure, looked at it and decided it was not for me. Lester was a professional and accepted my denial with professional impressiveness. The next day I looked at about 6 houses and found one that I was interested in. Lester is a one of a kind real estate agent that goes over and above what you expect. I would recommend him to anyone interested in selling or buying a house. He is not only my real estate agent , he has become my friend.

Bought a home in 2011.
Lester patiently showed my husband and me many properties in the Blairsville and Blue Ridge, GA area. We were impressed with his local knowledge and his low pressure approach. He never pushed us to make a purchase. Ultimately, we purchased a foreclosurer. Even though the foreclosurer was a relatively complicated transaction and carried a low commission, Lester continued to offer an exceptional level of service and was always immediately responsive. Lester made us feel that our purchasing a property we would be happy with was more important to him that his making a high dollar sale. If we ever decide to sell the property or to purchase a different property in the area, we will call Lester. Both my husband and I felt that Lester provided exceptional service and we highly recommend him.

Sold a home in 2009.
By far the best agent I have ever used in this area. I bought my current home through him. He helped me negotiate a fair deal with this bank owned house. I later listed my first cabin with him which he was able to sell in very short order considering it was in the middle of the downturned economy. I would not use anyone else except Lester Chesser for any kind of real estate dealings because of his knowledge of the area, honesty and hard work.
