Ratings & Reviews

Louise helped me with both the selling and purchasing process. <br/><br/>From her first visit to the home, when she gave me suggestions for repairs and staging advice, to the closing, she was completely engaged. Without prodding from me, she pulled out all the stops when my house seemed to linger too long on the market, increasing her research of the local market (in eastern Wake Co.) and working with realtors for other homes in the area to combine marketing efforts. She held 3 open houses, sent emails, flyers, featured the home on Zillow and other social media outlets. She was well informed in all aspects of the marketing required to sell my home. <br/><br/>When my buyer encountered problems that delayed the sale of my home for 11 days after the scheduled closing, Louise stayed on top of the problem and worked consistently for my best interest. She held the other agent's feet to the fire, all the while focusing on the fact that a completed sale was in everyone's best interest. Everything was handled professionally, despite great frustration on our part.<br/><br/>The fun part of house selling can be the house buying that follows. Louise sent me notices of homes matching my criteria. She was quick to set up appointments for us to visit homes on the market and helped me evaluate the homes we saw. She maintained tight schedules to be sure that my time was spent wisely. <br/><br/>Thanks to Louise, purchasing process and the closing on the home I chose to buy went extremely smoothly. Again, she understood the process, was quick to identify issues and her expertise and vigilance helped me to feel like everything was under control. <br/><br/>Louise truly demonstrated the difference between an ok agent and an excellent agent. She knows the local market and she knows all the ins and outs of buying and selling a home. She consulted with me routinely so that I always knew what was going on and nothing was a surprise. <br/><br/>I highly recommend her!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Big Bear Lake, CA.

Not only does Louise have extensive knowlege of San Diego and Southern Cali Real Estate but she is supremely pleasant, supportive and communicative as you proceed through the various stages of the real estate transaction. She's a straight shooter too--I was constantly impressed with her high ethical standards in dealing with everyone from the contractors to the appraisers, finance people and the seller. Her character shows through in her dealing such that everyone involved comes out feeling good about the transaction. I know a number of other friends who have used Louise as their agent and I've never heard such positive comments about a realtor before.

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 in Upper Dimond, Oakland, CA.

When I inherited my late father's home upon his death in January 2013, I was faced with a bunch of tough decisions--including whether it would be worth the trouble to fix up and sell the house. I called Louise and got a lot of great advice about my options, including some research she did about trends in the semi-rural mountain area where my father had lived. She also helped me make an informed decision about which local Realtor to hire, what to look for in a contractor, and how best to update the look of the house without breaking the bank. She checked in with me often, as several months went by without an offer, encouraging me to ask my Realtor for updated photos and changing certain decorative items in the staged house to fit the changing season. When an offer finally did come in, she helped me decipher the fine print and realize that a contingency placed on the offer could lead to the offer falling through (which it did). I felt informed in a different way from what my own Realtor was telling me, as Louise did not have anything to gain by keeping information from me or painting a rosier picture. It helped so much to have her sage advice throughout the year-long process of selling my dad's home. I would wholeheartedly recommend Louise Griffin as a Realtor, an advisor, and a friend.
