Bought a home in 2014.

Don is a true professional. He does not try and pressure a client into buying anything. He listens well and asks the right questions, to make sure the buyer will get a property that fits their needs and budget. All of the properties that Don showed were right on target, he never wasted time showing properties that didn't fit the bill. I would highly recommend Don as an Exclusive Buyer's Agent.

Bought a home in 2014.

Don was key in finding the perfect home for us in the Greenville area. We knew we wanted a buyer's agent and Don was the perfect fit for us. He worked with us for over a year, from the time we first contacted him until we were ready to buy. He listened carefully to our needs and showed us homes that matched our requirements. When one home that we loved proved to be unavailable to purchase, Don remained cheerful and focused and kept us on track. He's low-key, friendly, and easy to talk to. He was instrumental in taking care of several issues for us after the purchase but before we could be here full-time and we are so appreciative that we had a true professional guiding us. You can't go wrong with Don!

Sold a home in 2014.

We were purchasing a second home in Greenville, SC that we found on realator.com. I wanted an exclusive buying agent to keep us focused, our best interest in mind on what we wanted and not what they had to sell. After an extensive online search we found Don Wessel. Don's reviews on the internet were all positive and came highly recommended. Don's website was informative and was update. We were not disappointed in hiring Don.

We sent Don an introduction email to start the process and his response was quick. We forwarded Don the house we wanted to purchase and our thoughts on the negotiation process how we wanted to proceed. Don did some research and sent us documentation regarding the said house. Don went and looked at the house and called with his professional opinion. Don was very responsive to our numerous calls and emails. Don started the negotiating process which took a turn for the worse, however, Don kept us focused and our best interest in mind. Don's contacts were excellent, especially the inspection, termite people and the closing attorney, which was essential as we were living far away.

Don is a very pleasurable person and we were very comfortable with him even when things were going bad. Don was professional at all times and not at all pushy. We would definitely use him, but that's not happening, we love our new home!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Simpsonville, SC.

My wife and I recently were given the opportunity to relocate from Maine to South Carolina. We were referred by our listing Agent to Don, and could not have been happier! Don was able to help faciliate the 1200 mile move with ease. Don was a trusted advisor and made many recommendations that were spot on with our expectations. Don was extremely responsive and was able to give us peace of mind that our transaction was in good hands so many miles away. Don had excellent insight into the Greenville area that we were able to rely on. If we have the opportunity, we'd love to work with Don again. Thanks Don!

Bought a Townhouse home in 2014 for approximately $200K in Sterling, Greenville, SC.

I recently moved to Greenville and wanted to find a home near the downtown area. I gave Don a seemingly impossible task: find me a condo or townhouse within walking distance of downtown and within my limited retired teacher's budget. Within a couple of hours, Don sent me a list of properties he thought might interest me, and a few days later we toured properties. When my first offer on a house fell through because the seller was unwilling to reduce his price, Don was very patient and supportive and suggested we look at another property. Throughout the process Don was knowledgeable, supportive, patient, and willing to provide any help I needed - and all with a smile and a good sense of humor. In the end, with Don's help I purchased a townhouse well below its appraised value and am in the process of renovating it to make it just the home I had hoped to find. I truly believe that I never would have found and purchased my dream home if it had not been for Don. If you are looking for a Greenville realtor, I strongly suggest that you contact Don Wessel, a buyer's agent who will look after YOUR interests.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $150K in Mauldin, SC.

Being first time home buyers, the entire process of buying a home was new to my wife and I. We had learned first hand that buying a house can be somewhat painful when we tried buying our first home a few years ago. Don was a great help with filling me in on what to expect, what to take into account when making decisions, and getting everything lined up to make our deadlines. Me and my wife had tough schedules to cope with at times and Don was able to be flexible and show us houses even with very short notice. I definitely wouldn't go through this process again without Don's help. AAA+++

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $175K in Greenville, SC.

I am a first time home buyer and still fairly new to the Greenville area. Understandably the thought of buying my first home was both exciting and nerve racking, but Don was there every step of the way. He made sure to understand what was important to me in a home and really knew the Greenville and surrounding areas well. Don worked around my schedule and always returned my calls and emails promptly. He gave excellent advice for negotiating the contract and on every other step of the home buying process. His recommendations for inspectors and closing attorney were great also. As an exclusive buyers agent he is there for you. I would highly recommend Don and will definitely be contacting him for any future purchases in the Upstate.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $350K in Greer, SC.

As a former realtor, I can appreciate the sometimes frustration that comes with the job. Don Wessel, is hands down, the best realtor I have ever used. We moved to the area and had initial, but naive intentions of living in Downtown Greenville and Don was very accommodating in showing us everything in that market in our price range. We then decided maybe the Roper Mtn Rd area was better suited and while we found a house on our own, Don was very gracious in the negotiations on our behalf, but it did not come to be as we decided the seller was just too difficult. Don had told us about the neighborhoods in Greer and we had discounted them initially, but after seeing several, we landed upon the perfect house for us and priced lower than our price range! He touched base with us almost daily before, during and after our purchase. He is easy going, but smart and strong when he needs to be to get things done...I hope we don't have to move again, but if we do, we will most definitely call Don. We'll call him anyway, because he has also become a friend, not just our realtor!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $125K in Greenville, SC.

I am a recent widow who had to purchase my first home by myself. With Don's expertise, I found the perfect home! From my first contact with Don, I was impressed by how accessible, knowledgeable and friendly Don was. He helped me through all the phases of being a homeowner, from looking at properties all the way to checking on my satisfaction after I moved into my new home. I would not hesitate to recommend Don to anyone looking for their new home. Thank you, Don!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $400K in Simpsonville, SC.

Having been a real estate agent in the past, I understood the conflicts that can arise between seller and buyer. Consequently, I knew I wanted a buyers agent and happened upon Don's website during my search for one. I found his videos as he drove around the area narrating information to be more helpful than any other research I had done to acquaint myself with a city unfamiliar to me. Don was prompt in contacting me, and moved quickly on my behalf to locate the "perfect" house as I had a brief window of time and very specific and challenging guidelines as to my needs. He was very knowledgable of such a large area and was flexible and accomodating as I changed my mind continuously over my preferences in neighborhoods. He was always available and prompt in solving any problem that came up. He listened to my concerns and responded appropriately. Had he not used good discernment and negotiating skills, we would have lost the house my family loves today. He moved the process along very quickly once we had a contract which is not always easy to do. In addition to his competency in real estate matters, he was great at alleviating anxieties I had over stressful issues that arose even involving the difficult closing of my own home in another city in which he had no involvement. He was completey reliable and trustworthy in handing the closing without me, and went the extra mile to say the least to get us into our new home on schedule when we experienced some glitches at the last minute on the closing of our previous home. I found him not only to be a true professional, but a good friend who was more interested in what was appropriate for my situation than what would have been more profitable for himself. He was the best agent with which I have ever worked, and I have moved many times. Yes, I would not hesitate to recommend Don!
