Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $75K in Auburn, NY.
Lee helped me purchase my first home. I worked with a couple different agents before Lee, but he seemed to be the only one on par with what I was looking for. Lee was very helpful with setting up walk-throughs and finding aspects of each home that might deserve attention whether good or bad.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 in Weedsport, NY.
Lee was very helpful and patient with helping us find a home. He was quick to get answers for our many questions. He also looked for homes that we might be interested in. I would highly recommend him if I was looking to buy another home. We also are in the process of selling another property and he has been most helpful with that process as well.
Sold a Single Family home in 2011 for approximately $175K in Penn Yan, NY.
Lee assisted us in selling my grandparent's home, which was a very personal and
somewhat emotional experience. It was a difficult decision to "let it go", but Lee's
expertise and knowledge gave us confidence in our decison, and that made it easier for us to sell the home and move on.
He then helped us find the property of our dreams. This was no easy feat, as we lived
over 3 hours away from the area we were looking in. Lee made all the arrangements to view homes, sometimes 3 homes in 1 day so we could maximize our time. He
gave us his insight and helped us find the right place. Lee was kind and patient with our requests and needs. We came to care about him like a friend.
Bought a Multiple Occupancy home in 2012 in Seneca Falls, NY.
Everyone always gives me horror stories about how difficult it is to buy a home and the amount of work it takes and I always just respond with you should get Lee Holmes as your agent! I have bought one house with Lee and am working on a second and have nothing but extremely positive things to say about him. A clear profesional with a great understanding of the business Lee takes care of everything possible leaving you to enjoy the experience of buying a home. Some qualities I particularly like when dealing with Lee is that he is a non pressure agent who will point out negatives in a house even if that makes you less likely to buy. He also has driven to my house for me to sign paperwork when I was very busy and he also took care of the radon test at no charge to take one more thing off my plate. I highly reccommend Lee for anyone looking for a Buyer's/Seller's agent.
We met Lee Homes while looking for homes in early 2012. We have bought quite a few homes in the area in the past 30 years and dealt with dozens of agents, and I can honesty say that Lee was the best by far. The most inportant quality was his communication with all facts and answers to questions and his knowledge of the market. We were so impressed that we hired him to sell our summer home and have complete confidence in him. I would, and have recommended him to everyone I know
