Testimonials for Lisa Southern
If I haven’t said this yet this week. YOU GUYS ARE MY ROCK STARS! I am so grateful for a great team.
I just wanted to thank you guys again for all of your help in getting this house sold and leasing it for the last couple of years. I know that it has been a huge source of stress for me over these last few years, while trying to sell/lease it (especially since I was living several hours away). However, the effort from your team exceeded my expectations. From Jim making numerous trips out there to check on things in person, to Kendall being so helpful with the paperwork, to Lisa dealing with the buyers’ difficult realtor. Thank you so much! I will have no hesitation to provide a recommendation for your team to any of my connections in the area.
I had the pleasure of working with the Southern Team in 2013. Based on their knowledge of the market, they were able to give me many helpful recommendations that allowed me to find the perfect house. As a first time home buyer I appreciated their willingness to always keep me up to speed throughout all of the steps in the buying process. I never felt that I couldn't reach out to them if I had any questions, because they would always answer them in a timely manner. It was also satisfying knowing that if I was interested in viewing a home they would work around my schedule to get it set up. Their astute real estate knowledge combined with their professionalism makes me confident in saying they will have a very successful future in real estate, and I wouldn't hesitate to give my recommendation."
Lisa Southern and her entire Team are amazing. What really impressed me about them is that they are a true family owned business. Jim, Reid, Kendall and Spencer are all involved in every aspect of the business, giving their clients the confidence that there is always someone looking out for their best interest. They truly care about their clients and treat everyone like part of the family. It has been a pleasure to work with them and I highly recommend them to anyone needing expert advice and guidance in any aspect of real estate - buying, selling, investing and property management.
I have worked with Lisa two times now to purchase a home and I would work with her again in a heart beat. She was always on my side and always willing to go above and beyond to make sure we got the best service. She has an outstanding personality and a go getter approach to her work. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an agent that is going to listen to what you are looking for and who will be on your side looking out for your best interest.
Lisa showed me houses all through 2011 ultimately leading to the purchase of my first home. She did a fantastic job and I will certainly use her for future property purchases in the Raleigh-Cary area! Lisa has excellent attention to detail and gives creative insight to help buyers visualize spaces. I would highly recommend Lisa to help you find your next home!
