Listed, but didn't sell my home in 2014.

I worked with Ryan directly. He was very nice and polite and very prompt. He did not push us to do any changes to the home like some others had tried making us do. Ryan really understood our unique situation and did everything in his power to help quickly. Highly recommend them to anyone. In the end we decided for personal reasons not to sell.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Pleasant Gap, PA.
Primary point of contact: Mariam Lowe

As a first time buyer I wasn't quite sure what I was getting into. Mariam Lowe guided me through the process from start to finish. She helped me find the perfect house for me, kept me in the loop regarding the process, and made sure I had everything I was required to do submitted correctly and on time. Every question I had was promptly answered and every concern was looked into and resolved.

I highly recommend Mariam as a buyer's agent!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Pleasant Gap, PA.
Primary point of contact: Miriam lowe

Miriam helped me purchase a home and she was awesome in helping me with the offer,negotiating the terms of repair from the house inspection and having the home owner fix all the main issues before we agreed to buy the home. She was very professional in helping us out no matter what the time if day. We would talk at 12am 6am 8am 3pm 8pm or 11pm. If needed, she was there for any questions or concerns. Very satisfied and will refer to future home buyers.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Bellefonte, PA.

We were very disappointed with Ryan Lowe as our realtor. We would not recommend him. Which surprised us bc of the reviews we read prior to listing with him. In the beginning, we thought he would have our best interest; but we soon learned we did not choose the right realtor. His arrogance and condescending attitude made it difficult to work with him. Also, when we questioned his "settlement fee" (which we thought was a litigate and necessary charge for the new deed and notary) which was a $450 charge in addition to his 5% broker's fee. But after doing some research only $100 of the $450 actually goes to the deed/notary! This was a "junk" fee and was in addition to his 5% broker compensation. Most people selling a home don't even question this fee bc, like us, they assume it is a standard charge. This charge was not clearly broken down and not understood to be for the new deed and notary AND additional compensation to REMAX. After making a price change to our house, we refused to resign the seller agreement form bc of we didn't agree with the settlement fee; however, he said if we were going to be like that then he would raise his compensation from 5% to 6%. He said this along with another inappropriate comment. We repeatedly asked him to remove the charge but he refused to do so. $450 may sound like a little bit of money in the grand scheme but it's the principal of the matter which reflects poorly on Ryan & Remax. I was more disappointed in Ryan and his unwillingness to compromise than in losing $350. So just BEWARE! Handling the paperwork or transaction is the agent's responsibility for which they are compensated in their commission. Adding fees on top of that to increase a bottom line is unethical. He said he disclosed it but we said he didn't...regardless, it is an excessive fee that we reluctantly HAD to pay so it would not impede the closing. Hopefully this helps educate other sellers to look closely at all the fees and know you are not required to pay a settlement fee or transaction fee in addition to a realtor's commission.

I apologize that you feel this way about your experience but I must say that your review is misleading. First of all I did explain the basis of our settlement fee when we met at your home and furthermore, our paperwork is labeled to clearly show that our settlement fee is just that.... a settlement fee which includes the deed Prep fee plus notary fees. Furthermore in the 2 months we had your home on the market we brought you 2 contracts, 1 of which fell apart as a result of the buyer's concerns with the inspections and the other buyer who within 30 days closed on the property (which we escalated so you were able to close on the short sale property in Louisiana at the request of the seller/lienholder) To say the things you said in your review are unfair because we worked extremely hard to bring you the best price in the time-frame that you needed and also I disclosed the basis of our settlement fee and it was clearly labeled on the listing paperwork when we met at your home.

Sold a home in 2014.

We worked with Ryan after having 2 so-so real estate transactions with other brokers in the past. This was by far the most positive experience. Ryan was very upfront with us about how to aggressively sell our house (we were under contract in less than a week!) and we always felt like he "had our back" when the buyers' agent was trying to pull some bizarre stuff. We will definitely be using him in the future.

Bought a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $350K in Bellefonte, PA.

My husband and I were in the process of relocating to the State College area and came across Ryan's sister hosting an open house. She gave us Ryan's card and we never looked back! Ryan has the patience of a saint and has a way of being so supportive especially during a stressful time with moving. Ryan always made time to show us homes when we were up for the weekend, without hesitation. Ryan even took the time after we made an offer to let my mom see the house when she came down to visit us. Ryan, being from the area, knew where to take us from our laundry list of wants and needs. He is very knowledgeable not only with the area, but also gave us many recommendations on who to call for little upgrades that we wanted to do. I would recommend Ryan and Linda to anyone and I consider them our friends!

Sold a home in 2014.

Ryan handled everything for us. Selling a home was made so easy through him. We had nothing to worry about, Ryan handled everything. Ryan answered all of our questions when we met with him. Ryan always returned our phone calls and kept us posted about the home we were selling. This guy is very knowledgeable.
