When in the market to buy or sell a home, a huge key in a successful transaction is who you choose for a real estate agent.  Knowing whether or not the person you choose to represent you is knowledgeable in both the market and area, is a strong negotiator, or makes you feel comfortable and confident in all your decisions can really make the difference in a pleasant or unpleasant experience.  A few of the top things to keep in mind when choosing an agent include:

1. Experience- How long have they been in the business? 

2. How They Communicate- Will they email, call or text me? How often? 

3. Marketing (if selling a home)- How will they market and and get the most exposure on my home? 

4. References- Have their past clients had a positive experience using them? 


These, along with many more, are just a few things one should think about when making the decision of who to use as a real estate professional. If you are in the market to buy or sell, we would love to visit and discuss how we can help you!  See what a few of our past clients have said..


"The Jeff Merrill team was great to work with. They referred us to a mortgage person and then showed use the houses that we were interested in. Everything was done in a timely manner. The house inspection, the appraisal, the closing date, everything was done perfectly. Amy Hendrix was so attentive to  our wants and needs. Thank you so much for helping us find our home"


"Jeff did an awesome job of helping us sell our home and purchase our new home that we just love. It was a great pleasure dealing with a realtor with such knowledge of buying a new home. We were extremely happy with everything through the whole process. I would highly recommend Jeff and his Team to  anyone looking to buy a new home or selling what you have now."


"I recommend for anyone who is looking at buying or selling their home to call Jeff Merrill's office. I worked with Melissa and she responded to every text, email and/or call within seconds. She worked around my schedule, day or night. I always had my questions answered and she thought of every  option possible to make my dream come true. We were able to look at every home without someone hanging over our shoulder. She truly is a wonderful person. I also had an issue with my Bank when we were 2 weeks from closing and Melissa referred me over another Banker over at CU Mortgage and they worked hard and made everything fall into place at the last minute. The Jeff Merrill Team are great people and have huge Hearts. I thank them for putting all of their efforts into making sure we had a home. If I ever sell my home, they will be the first ones I call. Couldn't be happier with Jeff Merrill and his Team!!"


"Jeff was very helpful as we walked through both the home selling and the home buying process. He was understanding when we were feeling overwhelmed by things and allowed us to do things at our own pace. We appreciated the high quality customer service and would happily work with him again."


"Jeff was great to work with ! We were a first time home buyer and we couldn't be more pleased with how easy Jeff made this process with us. He pointed out good things and bad in the homes we looked at, that my husband and I would have never noticed. Jeff was very flexible with our work schedules.  We even signed for our offer on our house around mid night ! Jeff wouldn't let us buy a house that had problems or if he new we didn't love it . He makes sure it's the right one ! We trusted him, and we are now in our dream home ! Thanks to Jeff and his team ! You are the best ! We highly recommend Jeff to anyone!"
