Client Feedback

Clint, you are #1 in our books! You far exceeded our expectations! You made us feel like we were a priority and your knowledge and expertise helped put our minds at ease. We appreciate how you were always there for us, no matter the time or day. We feel lucky that our lender hooked us up with you. Thanks again for your time and dedication which led us to buying the home we'd been looking for! Ryan & Erica Mitchell
Clint was available to answer questions and provide sage advice at any time during business hours or not. Always helpful, and quick to respond to any inquiry! There was an issue with the home inspector that Clint was quick to remedy. Really put my mind at ease to have him on my side during the whole selling process. He provided fantastic service. I honestly cannot think of a single thing Clint could have done to improve. I will highly recommend him to anyone buying or selling a home! Mathias John Litzinger -- Ridgecrest, CA
Over and above! Great communication, knowledge of processes, and handling our difficult situation, I knew I was in the right hands and I am grateful for your guidance.  During the earthquakes, I didn't even have to ask you about my property - you went and checked on it automatically, knowing I would be concerned. Sheena and I knew that having you represent us in the sale of our home we would be dealing with a professional. We knew would receive the proper information we needed to make informed decisions. Thank you, for an unforgettable experience - even though we had a few bumps that were out of our control, having you there was invaluable. Your email list is what kept you as our number one guy - keep that thing going. I was sure you were still doing business because I kept getting your email every month. And it's got good info in it!
 
Albert & Sheena Krabbe -- now in Shingle Springs, CA
All we needed to do was focus on getting our possessions taken care of. You handled all inspection scheduling and setting us up with the repair people, cleaning people and title company. We were allowed to stay focused on our task while you handled everything else. Clint was always in communication with us, whether it was for information, administrative task, or just providing status. VERY REASSURING! He was on top of every aspect of our home sale from start to finish!! Easy peeszy! Bill & Susie Frank - now RVing in the USA
Clint far exceeded our expectations with his excellent communication skills, his attentiveness to detail, timeliness in communication, and interactions with the buyer. I have never known a realtor to provide the extensive facilitation of home repairs and helping us to obtain the best and most expedient contractors to get the jobs done. Down to the wire, he even helped us facilitate the home emptying process by arranging for handymen helpers to assist moving out furnishings, and helped us donate music to the local music programs. What truly stands out is his availability and expediency every step of the way. The orchestration of the stovetop replacement was a real challenge, but in less than two weeks the negotiations and replacement were complete. If there is anything bad to say, it is that he spoiled us! We give Clint the highest recommendation possible. It was our extreme pleasure working with him. Clint is a seasoned realtor and extraordinary friend!! Terri Miller -- Las Vegas, NV. Sold parents' home in Ridgecrest.
Your service was excellent again! You covered every detail like always. I feel like you went above and beyond to get the house sold! Mike Lanza -- now in San Antonio, TX
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
