I first listed my home in 2015 with a realtor within Westminster, MD who led me to believe that they would be able to sell my house very fast. When we met, they did not give any suggestions in terms of staging, they took the pictures and my house was online within in hours. As a result of skipping out on this step, my house sat on the market and did not sell. My house was priced extremely below value. In fact, if it sold, I would have to bring funds to closing to pay off my loan. There were no open houses scheduled, etc… as a last resort, the realtor finally recommended that I just rent my property. I finally ended the contract and decided that the time was not right.
I received numerous flyers in the mail from other realtors, countless phone calls, but a visit by Eric Horne would change everything. He is extremely pleasant and his demeanor is inviting. He did not make wild promises, he simply stated facts. His approach (and Nancy’s) was simply, give us a chance. We know we can sell this. I decided I had nothing to loose.
A meeting was scheduled with Nancy who came in and made an extensive list of what needed to be changed in order to get the most value for my home. I would encourage any seller that once you receive the list, just make the changes. Ask no questions.
Upon listing my home, I instantly had several showings, she scheduled several open houses. I always felt like selling my home was her priority, (even though I’m sure she has other clients). Throughout the process, she answered any questions that I had. I personally like the fact that she and Eric work as a team. I felt like I had two realtors for the price of one. ? Eric and Nancy are a great team. Eric showed me several homes that I was considering purchasing, while Nancy would be busy in the “grind” making sure that overall, I was getting the best deal ever. Nancy was always with me. She came and sat with me while various steps in the process were being conducted. For example, the day is my appraisal, I needed to be home for another reason, and she came over and we talked about restaurants and where we would celebrate. She knows how to ease your mind and she takes all the worrying from her clients.
Why do I say she sells the impossible? I personally thought my house had a lot of flaws, but Nancy quickly turned what I thought were flaws into opportunities for curb appeal and selling nuggets. In fact, I feel like she sold my house for more than what I ever imagined I would.
Overall, Eric and Nancy are a great team. I’m happy that Eric initially left me the flyer and followed up with a visit. I’m now in my dream home that Nancy went above and beyond to make sure I settle into. She actually knocked on doors (with approval) in he neighborhood I wanted to live in. Because of her persistence, close attention to detail, “shark-like” zeal to always fight for her clients, I sold my home, am in the BEST house, and made enough profit for a great down payment.
I would use Nancy again if I ever plan to sell again, but seeing how this is my “forever home”, all I can offer at this point is my review and referrals. The Horne’s are an asset to your company.” Lindsay A.
