What Clients Are Saying

After twelve strenuous months of searching for a new place to call home, Connie Landes helped us find the right property for our needs. Chris and I were attempting to find a home by way of iPad apps, but it took the personal touch of an excellent realtor to find the right property. After working with multiple realtors, we found Connie to be polite, engaging, and extremely helpful.

Our journey together began by meeting Connie at an open house event. Although the property did not fit our needs, Connie kept in touch and started searching the area for a property based on our provided list of wants and must-haves. With the area’s short supply of listings, Connie recommended properties quickly and set aside time to show the homes. She was even able to get us into some homes before open house events.

As soon as we found the right property, Connie immediately began a dialogue with the listing agent and the purchase process began. She talked with our financing company and arranged a very clean and calculated offer. A short closing time period, along with Connie’s personal delivery, allowed our offer to beat seven other interested parties.

Even after our purchase, Connie has stayed in touch and helped us find reliable renovation contractors. We now find Connie to be an extremely friendly and knowledgeable friend in the community. She even brought us some nice gifts to celebrate our new place!

We wholeheartedly recommend Connie Landes for any real estate need. We also offer up communication with anyone interested in hearing about the details of our journey. Feel free to contact us by way of the information below.

Connie is a very friendly, honest, capable, open minded, positive thinking, "upbeat," "go-getter" type of an agent. She brought enthusiasm, good energy and clear thinking to the sales effort. She did a very complete and accurate market study, and she helped to price the property appropriately. Her marketing strategy was perfect for the location. She spent a great deal of time on site to discuss property improvements to make the property "sale ready." She was "available" when I had questions and needed her assistance. She put on a wonderful "broker's open house" and the house sold in the first week that it was on the market. She is completely honest, reliable, and accurate. She pays close attention to every detail. She is very knowledgeable about the sales process, and she was very patient in explaining every step and procedure to me, as I was a "first time seller." She is a good negotiator. She worked willingly and efficiently with my real estate attorney. She is becoming an expert on the sale of houses in trusts. She chose a very efficient title company and representative. Connie made the sales process pleasant and efficient. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for an honest, pleasant, and capable agent. I would recruit her efforts again, if I needed to sell or buy a property.

Connie was a joy to work with! She organized our viewings perfectly, knew the properties and was quick to point out issues of interest that I might have overlooked. She was also very well versed with short sales and bank owned properties, which helped speed our purchase! She quickly understood our needs as far as features, locations and price point, which made our process very focused. Connie also introduced us to a great Mortgage Broker who pulled out all the stops to close in 30 days as the seller/bank wanted. I would absolutely use Connie again and would recommend her to friends and family.
