ATLANTA HOMES FOR SALE
I decided to list my home Spring, 2007, and rehired Jim and Ellen to be my listing agent, as I had first employed them 4 years ago (as my buyer agent) when I bought the Roswell home I am now selling. As was my experience the first time I dealt with this husband-wife realtor team, they were competent, no-nonsense, professional and insightful.
When Jim arrived at my home, Jim came prepared with comps to talk market price and selling strategy, then diligently walked through and around my home and sized it up for me. He gave me a very specific list of "fix-it/improve-it" recommendations if I wanted to improve the attractiveness and sellability of my home.
I heeded his advice and listed my home a month following completion of the improvement items. Even in this very soft (Buyers) market, I got lots of traffic right away, and to my amazement I received a viable contract within a month of listing it.
The Buyer's agent was a nice lady, but extremely inexperienced (this was her first home sale to date), and Jim and Ellen were superb on working with her to ensure all i's were properly dotted and t's crossed, and thankfully, the accelerated closing went through without a hitch.
I have hired nearly a dozen realtors thus far in my life, and I can honestly say, after one purchase experience and one selling experience with Jim and Ellen, they are simply beyond compare. The overall support, responsiveness, insights and advice I received from them in both transactions was simply beyond compare. If you want a great realtor then look no further, whether you are buying or selling.
Jim and Ellen, thanks for everything...you guys are top of the heap!! Sincerely, Dennis - Roswell Homeowner 2007
"I cannot begin to adequately express my deep appreciation and gratitude for all that you both did to help me through this grueling house-selling process. Your very high level of expertise, knowledge and professionalism were why I wanted to work with you, but I was also continually grateful for your warmth and heartfelt friendliness during those moments when I got discouraged. I am firmly convinced that I got the best representation from initial listing to final closing because I was working as a team with you two. Thank you both so very, very much for all the guidance and many little extras that you provided. Now that I'm almost settled in my new home, I want to invite you both to a relaxed social call when scheduling permits. Thanks again, a hundredfold.Best Wishes,
Donna Harlow" Alpharetta Homeowner Camden Pond - 2007
"I wanted to thank you both for all your hard work towards selling our home. We all know it was a difficult sell, and us being out of town did help the situation. You both went above and beyond my expectations, and I feel that if it wasn't for you I would still own a house in Atlanta. Thank God, that is not the case. Keep up the hard work and best of luck in the future."
"Jim and Ellen represented the selling of our home in Sugar Hill, GA. in Spring of 2005. We were very impressed with the knowledge both of these agents possessed regarding the home selling / buying market. My husband and I were in a relocation 0 which required us to leave our home vacant after moving to Tennessee.
With the "pressure on" to sell our home in ample time so that we would not be in the financial situation of paying two mortgages, Jim and Ellen showed their true home selling colors.
Despite the challenges of the current Atlanta home selling market, our home was sold in ample time and for the price we were striving for. Jim and Ellen demonstrated an aggressive edge, and genuine concern for the selling situation.
If our future ever holds a relocation situation back to the Atlanta area, we will undoubtedly use them again as buying agents. We would highly recommend them to anyone, and feel good about having had such a positive experience."

"I liked the way Ellen did the initial administrative tasks thoroughly and accurately within 24 hours of receiving my call, even though the weather was poor, and you did the follow up until closing. You both met my
expectations!" Ed Fernandez, Roswell Home Seller
"I would like to commend you both on the outstanding job that you did to find me a home and get me relocated and moved in.
Our family has had the benefit of your experience, knowledge, skill and expertise in Real Estate on numerous occasions over the past 8 years. You have helped my 2 sons and myself move here from Maryland, and the family of my daughter-in-law move here from Florida.
Last April I had just retired and was recovering from a difficult surgery and I faced the daunting task of relocating to the Alpharetta area to be near my children. My sons and their wives highly recommended you and sang your praises. From my very first contact with you I was very impressed.
Initially I logged on to your Web site from Maryland and was very pleased to be able to get a good deal of information from there. I was very impressed that you were blazing the computer age trail with all the Real Estate information you made available.
You arranged your schedule so that you could meet with me for the short period I would be visiting in order to find a home. You assessed my needs and desires and showed me many suitable properties. You were very knowledgeable about the demographics of the area, investment suitability, convenience of locations, property values, available resources and many other items that a person needs to know before purchasing a home, which is big commitment and a sizable expenditure for most.
When I decided what property I wanted to buy you were right there helping me with the decision and telling me all the pro's and con's. Your advice was absolutely essential and was extremely helpful. You were always available for questions and always responded quickly to my calls.
You were present at the inspection and your advice was very helpful. Before closing, you helped me make certain that I had all the necessary paperwork completed and all the tasks done, that was so very reassuring. I really appreciate the address labels that you gave me at closing, that was so thoughtful and very useful.
You figuratively held my hand throughout the entire process and I am very grateful. I just love my new home and it suits me perfectly, all the homes in this subdivision have now been sold and Pulte is building others, clearly
this was a good purchase.
Your years of experience in Real Estate gives you a high level of professionalism and the knowledge and expertise necessary for any transaction. You have a high level of integrity and strong Christian values making you very honorable and trustworthy. Add to that your charming, gracious and charitable personalities and that is a winning combination. I would highly recommend you to anyone!!
Barbara" Alpharetta Homebuyer
We were very pleased with the service we received from the Crawford team. They laid out a very thorough plan to market and sell our home. They secured a qualified buyer immediately and continued to walk us all through the rest of the process. Their attention to detail was priceless. Our only regret is that we were unable to take them with us to our new home state for the purchase of our next house!
Nikki & Mike Kilbane Roswell Home Sellers
Thank you so much for finding our "Dream Home" for us. You made the process go as smooth as silk. We anticipated so many problems that other homeowners warned us about, but you made the entire time unbelievable easy and quick. You have so many outstanding resources and have an excellent knowledge of the current market. You helped us buy our new home and helped us sell our old one and we trusted you 100%. We are now happily settling in and are so glad we found you on the internet. You were patient with our many special requirements and kept the communication going strong the whole way. We will be sure to recommend you to any future home buyers we know.
Thank you from the bottom or our hearts...
Gary and Summer --Roswell GA Homebuyers & Sellers
"We expected that selling our home would be a stressful experience, but with Jim & Ellen Crawford as our REALTOR, that was not the case. When we first met with the Crawfords, we were impressed both with their savvy regarding the local home market and with his good humor. They heard our needs and concerns, devised an effective marketing plan for our home, listed it, and within two weeks, it was under contract to a buyer to whom we felt very comfortable selling. Jim and Ellen continued to assist us throughout the inspection process and were a sound advisors at closing. We recommend them unreservedly."

"As a Doc' and an ARMY Officer I get asked to endorse a lot of things and often I will not do it because I either do not feel comfortable or confident in the product or the service. Your company and your service are "TOP NOTCH" and I would recommend your service to anyone!
Once again..."THANK YOU"...you guys deserve a Medal or something for dealing with all the multiple complex issues involved in our home sale! The repairs, recommending the workers, the marketing strategies, the issues with sales and finances, personalities, worried relocated owners...you did it all! Even more,...you did it all and made the sale during the 9-11 timeframe...when the market hit its lowest level in years! We made a profit and did it in a very bad market! If we ever move back to Atlanta we will call you first and only!"
Dane and Sherry Harden, Homesellers Lilburn GA
"Lisa and I appreciate your dedication to selling our home in Roswell as well as assisting in the purchase of our new home in Woodstock. The professionalism that you both exhibit is beyond reproach. Your personal commitment on both the selling and purchasing sides of the transactions was
Again, thank you both and please know that our most heartfelt recommendations go out to any of our friends and associates who are looking for that perfect agent. You two not only "top" the list. You are the list."

"Jim and Ellen made the process of buying and selling our home seem effortless. With their vast experience in the real estate industry, they educated and consulted us into what always turned out to be the best
decision for us."
Willie and LaTonya Lee Alpharetta, GA Silver Ridge
"If it wasn't for the hard work done by Jim and Ellen Crawford, our home may still be for sale.
This task was extremely difficult since my wife and I have moved from Atlanta to Boston, and the house was sitting empty. Also, the summer of 2002 has been a time when the market in Atlanta is very soft.
Nevertheless, Jim and Ellen worked day and night to make sure our house was seen often by possible buyers. Once an offer was made and accepted, Jim and Ellen made sure they stayed on top of the lawyers and the bank to insure a prompt close.
Jim and Ellen are very professional, thorough, and have great attention to detail. We had total confidence in putting the sale of our home in their hands.
Thank you, Jim and Ellen, for all you did for us. God bless !!"
Dan & Marie Sinkiewicz Bedford, New Hampshire --Gwinnett Home Sellers
"We cannot express our thanks enough to Ellen and Jim Crawford for their expertise and efficiency in selling our home. Their professionalism and marketing strategy are incredible! Our home sold in just 16 days! No hidden secrets or broken promises...Just RESULTS!! I am happy to say I have had a stress free experience with friendly professionals. The web advertisements were the BEST we have ever seen. Thank you Ellen and Jim for a job well done and the heart to care..."
Sincerely, Terry and Lucy Home Seller's Duluth GA
What can we say....you did it. When Larry needed to list this
property, I told him he only had 1 choice. With my 33 years in the Escrow and Title industry, experience has taught me many things. Always list with a professional who makes real estate their business. I searched the internet, with a few companies in mind, and picked you two because of the professional web site and information, and the strength of the company you represent.
You kept us so informed, we never had any questions, that went unanswered. You have gone above and beyond our expectations, and if you were in Arizona, we would use you on our next home purchase.
God Bless you both...Have a great summer.

It was a pleasure working with you as well. I can now see why Willie Lee referred you to me. We at no point felt pressured into making a decision. Without your
guidance it would not have been possible for us to make an informed decision. We appreciated you being honest about your opinions. I would recommend you to any friend of mine who is looking for a house. If the need should arise in the future, I
will definitely work with you.

"Jim made the entire home buying process not only stress-free but also enjoyable. His wealth of experience and knowledge of real estate paid off for us in a big way -- We love our new home!! Definitely Atlanta's Best!"
Mr. & Mrs. Matt Gallaher -- Alpharetta Homebuyer Windward
"Just wanted to let you know that it was a real pleasure to have you folks sell our home. You let us know what we needed to do to get the house ready for sale and then did everything possible to get the house in front of people.
I am a believer in your company because our house sold in less than forty days. In today's market that is very impressive.
Thanks again for all your hard work."
Fred & Sue Gehrisch --Alpharetta Home Sellers! Andover North
"I just wanted to thank you again for all of your help selling our house. I've never dealt with a real estate agent that worked harder, or that was as knowledgeable about market conditions and real estate practices. Tim and I appreciate all the effort you took to market the house in multiple ways, via Internet, print, and through the use of realtor's luncheons. We believe that you were the reason our house in a short timeframe at a very fair price. I would also like to thank you for being so generally helpful, supportive and a non-anxious presence in a really difficult time.
Tim and Beth Howe --Alpharetta Home Sellers! Wellington Subdivision
"First of all, I want to thank you for all of your hard work and willingness to handle listing the property following a long term rental situation. After a few weeks in a very saturated Southeast US market, it sold with a very good profit.
For any of your future clients, this could not have been an easier sale. Your web site is the main reason we chose to list with "Jim and Ellen". We searched the internet and their web site came up on many different search engines time and time again and when out of town buyers are looking at homes this is often how they find one.
Ellen was my main contact and I must say she was always accessible. I always had an easy time reaching her by phone or e-mail. She also helped me get carpenters and professionals to work on my list required for the sale of the home and allowed them access to the home and was always available when they were ready to install something or finish the job.
I have owned five houses and this was by far the easiest listing and sale process I have ever experienced. I would refer friends and relatives to Jim and Ellen and I would use their services again."
Belinda -- Alpharetta Homeseller Avensong
"...just a brief note to thank you for your help in finding, negotiating and closing on my new home. From the moment I first spoke with your wife, Ellen, and then met you, I was impressed by both of you for your candor, competence and professionalism. I had a most abbreviated timeframe with my relo and had stringent constraints on my home requirements. In response, you quickly scoped out the products available in the market, picked out the homes that fit my needs, and helped me settle quickly to successful closure. Your insights and advice on the home market, Roswell area, lenders, and negotiating tips were fantastic and most useful. It has truly been a pleasure working with you, I hope you are still in the Atlanta area and the real estate business the next time I need a home, and I would gladly refer you to my family and best friends. Best of luck in your future and also give my best to Ellen."
Best regards, Dennis --Roswell GA Hombuyer Crabapple Creek
