I met Starla
at an open house two or three years ago when my wife and I were thinking of
down sizing.She helped us with our
search and was very patient with us even though we finally realized we couldn’t
bring ourselves to make the move from the house we loved.In the meantime my wife passed away
suddenly.It soon became clear it was
time for me to consider making that move.I called Starla.
Starla spent time bringing me up to date on the current market conditions in my area, the seasonality of real estate sales here for optimum listing time, listened to my specific tentative options going forward, advised on what current buyers were looking for and expecting, and promised to advise or even help with the staging.
We listed the house at the beginning of the spring season this year and it sold in just 33 days, close to the asking price.This was great, but so far my search for a place to rent in the area had been futile because of the seasonality of that market.Starla assured me that she’d help me find exactly what I wanted in time for the closing.She did, and she helped me through that paperwork process.
Starla is a seasoned professional with a proven record who knows the market.She has the personality to get her client through what can be a stressful experience .I heartily recommend her.
John Clark – McCormick Ranch, Scottsdale, AZ
is with great pleasure and gratitude that I share comments on my experience
with Starla R. Williams, Home Smart in the listing and sale of my home in
Carefree, AZ and the purchase on a home in Scottsdale, AZ. I initially contacted
Starla based on a very positive sell-and-purchase engagement 14 years ago.
After getting an offer the day after she hosted an open house I would have
never expected a repeat performance but she exceeded my expectation.
Her recommendations for staging and preparing the home for market worked as did her advice on pricing. The afternoon of the day the sign was placed in front of the home, prior to the actual MLS listing, she called to say a prospective buyer wanted to see it that evening. The following day, I had an offer for full price.
Starla’s expertise at each phase of the sales effort was superior providing useful insights on pre-listing renovations/staging, an effective showing and proactive facilitation during the sale negotiations/due diligence. She was as helpful on the purchase with price negotiation and keeping me fully aware of the status of various integral purchase related activities.
Through the entire process all tasks, whether business-related or interpersonal, were accomplished with the utmost professionalism, competence, humility, integrity and grace.
I highly recommend Starla R. Williams for your residential real estate needs.
Williams has been our Realtor since we moved to Arizona and has represented us
in 7 real estate transactions.Our most
recent was a short sale property that we purchased earlier this year.Starla’s expertise in the area of short sales
and foreclosures proved very beneficial in making the process run smooth from
start to finish.Her exceptional follow
through kept the process moving and the other realtor “motivated”.
I would highly recommend Starla whether you are buying or selling a home.She has extensive (30+) years in the marketplace and has an expertise in the area of new home construction that few Realtors have in the market.She did such an excellent job of marketing our previous home, that it sold in just a few weeks at 96% of list price.In such a challenging market, it was nothing short of miraculous.
Starla will work tirelessly to help her clients to find the right home or to market their current home.It is because of this commitment that we continue to retain her as our Realtor time and time again.
Sincerely, Betty S. Werick
