Client Feedback

From beginning to end the whole process was smooth with no issues! Clint kept us informed and was always available for any questions. He was very helpful in explaining and discussing our concerns regarding the pre-inspection. Clint was highly recommended and we are glad we used him to help sell our house!  Clint's level of service was excellent! Sam & Paula Caster -- Ridgecrest, CA
I met Clint through a lady I met in California.  I had a death in my family and had to take over the care of my 97-year-old grandma... and I live in Tennessee.  I felt hopeless.  But, Clint took care of all the details and he introduced me to a great handyman Tom Graham. Tom took care of so much that I couldn't.  I'm proud to say that Clint was a God send.  He made a very difficult time easier for me and my grandma. I give Clint a five-star rating!!  If I could give more I would.  Thank you Clint for making this transition easy for our family!! 
Tresa and Janet Foster -- Charlotte, TN
Above and beyond! If there were any questions or issues with the property or the sales deal we got an answer or resolution within less than 24 hours. As first-time home buyers we had no idea what we were walking into but the entire process from start to finish was smooth and seamless! Upon our final walk through before closing when it was discovered that someone had broken into our new home, everything was taken care of within two days to make sure we closed on time, which was early! Honestly, we cannot think of anything to improve. We are pleased with our overall experience and highly recommend Clint!! Zach & Brenn Shively -- Ridgecrest CA
I liked that you provided a calm optimism during the entire process. Your regular communication and fast responses to texting or calling was highly valued. I was a bit concerned when we started to have regular open houses but that is how we ended up with a buyer, so I can't complain. I was very happy with your extra services, especially the home stager. It wasn't fun to live in a staged house but I do believe it led to excellent photos and positive impressions during showings. Thank you for providing upfront advice when it came to making decisions about offers and counter offers. Everything was my decision but your advice was important. I was also happy about your opinion towards my cat (that I didn't "need to get rid of her" if I wanted the house to sell). Keeping a house "show-ready" is a bit tougher with pets but you provided ample warning for showings and my cat got to go on lots of field trips with me. With a break-in the week before closing, and me in another state, I was very happy that you were able to take care of scheduling people to fixing things and keep closing on time. I was a nervous wreck but once again your calm demeanor and good communication kept me as calm as possible during the process. Over-and-beyond, Clint! Thank you! Lee Cambrea, now in Bloomington, IN
Excellent service! We appreciate all the time you spent with us before listing and frequently keeping us up-to-date. You answered all text and phone calls promptly. You prepared us well as we were getting the house ready to sell. Thank you for the staging of our home! It was beautiful!! Hal & Melissa Lenderman -- now in Santa Maria, CA
Thank you for all the help and professional manner in which you worked with us to sell our home in Ridgecrest. You were willing to go over-and-above. We appreciate you! Jack & Billie Wisecarver -- Nashville, Tenn.
Over-and-above! You helped get a good price for our sale, helped negotiate a couple of tricky quirks, and closed on the exact date as scheduled. And, you were sensitive to our unique needs. Sherry Lanza -- Lake Isabella, CA
Excellent service! Clint was very communicative and kept us informed throughout. He followed up emails with a phone call. Recommending to us a pre-listing home inspection was a great idea. It helped us address issues early and made escrow a smooth process. Selling a house in one day, including a bidding war, is about as good as it gets!! Dave & Heather Kenny -- Ridgecrest CA
Clint helped us through selling and buying homes. One was a smooth process, the other was challenging at best. He worked through all the issues known and unknown, and both homes closed only missing the closing date by one day. The whole time Clint remained calm and professional which helped us remain calm during the challenging process. We always remember when things don't go right! Late night phone calls, answering the same questions, and helping us every step of the way, Clint got us to closing! Clint, you're on top of your game, knowing your market and other agents. Great job! Now we can relax!! Joe & Chris Rodriguez -- Ridgecrest, CA
Clint, I have really enjoyed our working relationship. You not only have a very professional manner, but also a great personality that makes a person feel that you are personally involved in the success of the sale. I felt I was well informed at all times throughout the entire process. Once the properties were posted, I was sent a copy of the presentations, a virtual tour video, and the written postings. This allowed me to see what type of advertising was being used to promote the properties. Also, receiving updates and newsletters was very helpful since I no longer live in the area. Your commitment to your client and heavy involvement of your attention to detail promotes confidence in your ability to be successful. There was never a time that I doubted that I was with the right company or realtor. Your experience gives your clients peace of mind that everything possible is being done to complete the sale. You have the ability to make me feel as if I was your only customer, even though my properties were not of high value. You are truly a real professional who cares very much for the people you serve, and you always delivered on everything you committed to. The effort, energy, and commitment that you provided for my two properties went far beyond my expectations and I would recommend you to anyone I know that is looking for a realtor in your area. Thank you so much for all of your attention!! Jo Thacker -- San Diego, CA
I really appreciated the communication and the thoroughness of the pre-sale inspections and requests. I pushed back quite a bit on getting my renters out of the home before putting the house on the market. In retrospect though, that was definitely the right move and gave me the opportunity to make repairs and fix up the place. There’s no doubt in my mind that we ended up with a full asking price sale because of this. Clint, I just want to say that I really appreciate you. The process went well and really as smooth as I could have expected. Many thanks to you!!! Jimmy Southworth -- Maryville, MO
Clint was polite and thoughful. He answered a lot of questions and responded back to me in a timely manner. You've been at it for a long time and know what's going on. Thanks again!! Jeanne Tipler -- Ridgecrest, CA
Clint, you have truly helped me accomplish a goal, which was purchasing a house. Now we are living a dream, and moving towards our next goals. I am truly grateful! David & Melanie DeMello -- Ridgecrest, CA
Clint is very professional and organized. His texts about emails to look out for really helped. He kept us well informed, even when there were three of us involved, and kept everything on track! Over and above service! Tera Moorehead -- Ridgecrest, CA
Clint's level of service was over-and-above! A good example of this is taking the time and initiative to coordinate schedules between myself and the buyer to go on the cistern hunt. I know our schedules were a pain, but it was clear to me that you cared about everyone having all their concerns addressed, and it felt very genuine. You kept communications high and were usually passing me information before I even had a chance to ask. In an activity filled with processes and steps that are somewhat foreign to me, this meant a lot and was very appreciated. The whole experience was professional, considerate, and incredibly painless. As we move forward in other investments, we'll call you first. This was an ideal experience. Thanks again! Jason & Megan Zehendner -- Inyokern, CA
Clint,, you exceeded my expectations in prioritizing the sale of our home, being incredibly responsive and proactive at each stage, and maintaining an energetic and cooperative attitude throughout the process. I appreciated that you took into account the difficulties in our situation and exercised discretion and respect. Claudeliah Roze -- now in Garland, TX
Clint, you gave me great advice regarding the counter offer, thus you helped me make the right call. I really appreciate your hard work. Your ad for my property was descriptive and highlighted all the things that made it unique. I'm sure this is why it sold so quickly. You were thorough and accommodating. Your level of service is over-and-beyond! Cyndi Cavenaugh -- now in Denver, CO
You absolutely met our expectations during the entire process! Being a first time home buyers we didn't know anything. You answered all our questions and explained everything. If we needed anything you were just a text away! You welcomed us to our new home with a card, candy, and wine that was completely unexpected and kind. We are glad it's over! It took a while to do all of this but we really appreciate all that you did. Your service is over & above!! Andy & Athena Mrozik -- Ridgecrest, CA
Clint's overall level of service is over-and-above! Selling a home is very stressful. You made it less stressful by your patience and attention to all the details. You kept us informed every step of the way through the entire process, which made it somewhat easier, considering we did part of this process long distance! We couldn't imagine doing this with anyone but you. We cannot thank you enough, Clint! Karl & Megan Howard -- now in Bentonville, AR
Clint, you are the consummate professional! You are the master of negotiation. When we needed someone to make us see the big picture you were the one guiding us. Thank you for your people skills and your ability to see the big picture when we your clients couldn't. You kept us informed and you returned every call quickly. Whenever a question arose you were there for us. When we needed assistance you were there to help us and make sure we understood the complete process. Clint was able to sell our home in one day. We had one family walk through and we were only displaced during the process for about two hours. We received more than our asking price and it was a smooth process. Over-and-above service! Greg & Rachel Nielson, now in Bakersfield, CA
You are always upbeat, professional, and ready to tackle any situation. When you first came out to look at the property I asked what we needed to do to get the home sold. You looked it over and gave me your opinion and set things in motion. You gave me the names of contacts. In fact, you made the calls and they got in contact with me! Repairs were made and the house was put on the market. You were such a calming voice for me through this very difficult time in my life. Selling a house and the illness of my husband were very tough. When things needed to be done you were there not only as my realtor, but as a friend. It has been a pleasure working with you and I will definately be working with you in the future when that time comes again to sell or buy. You always got back to me in a timely manner when a question came up. You always kept me updated as things progressed. Cheryl Polley, Inyokern, CA
I did not know a real estate broker could help his clients in so many different ways to sell a home. Clint gave a lot of good suggestions and recommendations to modify the kitchen, bathrooms, and yard. It helped a lot to sell the house in a very short amount fo time. Thank you for taking pictures after the completion of the contractor work such as paint and carpet installation. You saved me travel time to Ridgecrest. And, you always responded to my phone calls and emails in a very timely manner. You have done oustanding work in selling my house!! Ramesh & Roppa Ajmera, formerly in Ridgecrest, now in San Diego, CA
Your marketing and advertising worked well. We had an offer quickly and your negotiation advice was always right because the buyer never had any major objections to your recommendations.I'd say the thing that stands out most was your responsiveness with the last minute crisis of title company paperwork. You were working answers and questions on both sides, and providiing help in getting through all that paperwork so we could close on time. That effort was greatly appreciated! The service was over-and-above especially with arranging services, repairs, and inspections while we are stationed overseas. It has been a pleasure working with you, and we would enthusiastically use your services again in the future. We're very happy to tell our friends and family about you and your work! Ray & Heather Marshall, presently stationed in Atsugi, Japan
You got my house sold quickly and helped me get things done that I was unable to do since I moved out of state. Clint was patient and helpful beyond what any other agent is. I am so glad I used you! You were amazing and answered all questions and did whatever was needed. I would recommend you without hesitation. If I was in Ridgecrest I would use you again. Anyone selling a house would be sadly mistaken not to use you. Over-and-above service! Just keep doing what you do! Ivy Koziel -- Paw Paw, MI, formerly in Ridgecrest, CA
You were on top of this sale from the start. You did everything you needed to do to get my house sold without delay. The sale of my old house was fraught with difficulties from the beginning and you were able to surmount every obstacle with ease. You also performed many sundry tasks that I was not able to do since I live almost 200 miles away from Ridgecrest. When the process entered stages in which progress was slow due to the short sale mortgage company, or the buyer's lender staff taking their time, you made sure that I was kept abrest of what was going on. You were a calming voice for me. There were a number of examples of your great performance. These were instances in which you procured the services of a handyman to help when due to my living far away I was not able to get repairs made to my house. This also included when I needed to get a pool cover installed, twice, and when branches of a tree needed trimming on the advice of the appraiser. Also just before closing you noticed that two trees were blown down by the wind and they needed to be removed. If you have Clint Freeman on your side, you've got a hard-working tireless friend doing the difficult job of selling your home in the very challenging real estate market.
