Listed, but didn't sell my Single Family home in 2010 in Deatsville, AL.
Nancy is very helpful and responsive. I get monthly activity reports and realty newletters that help with buying and selling a home. She let's you know ahead of time when you property is being shown and responds back if she has feedback. She is very knowledgable of the area and the people in the area. I chose Nancy based on positive recommendations from friends and co-workers.
Nancy did what we asked, responded to our questions accurately and promptly, is very knowledgable about the local market and what the lenders have to offer. She was extremely professional at all times. She was open to unconventional ways of thinking that were relevant to the situation. She evaluated the ideas and looked at their probable effect on the outcome of the goal of selling the property. At no time did she say "we've never done it that way" or "we always do it this way". She was not afraid to frankly state her opinion of the investment value of some properties that were for lack of a better word "run down". We have recommended her to others and will continue to do so in the future.

Even though lake front property was greatly affected by the down turn in home prices, Ms. Oates showed our home many times and several offers were made, none of which were taken. However, Ms. Oates kept us in mind and found a buyer six months after the house was removed from the market. She offered suggestions on what we needed to do to improve the property and kept us informed of any changes in surrounding property prices.

Nancy helped sell a less than ideal home in the most difficult market environment in years. She was spot on at determining the ideal prospective buyer. To make things more difficult, I was in another state, so I depended on Nancy to meet with and assist inspectors and repair people as we approached closing. She was also very helpful and patient during a difficult negotiating period.

We were very pleased with our work with Nancy. We felt our home had good exposure and sold quickly even though the economy was somewhat slow! We appreciated her knowledge of our county and what was going on in the housing market!
