Client Review

As with any new adventure such as purchasing or renting a home it is always a daunting and sometimes frightening task for anyone, more so for a foreigner with no experience of how the USA property market functions. My husband and I first met Sheila Dowell in 2007, when after renting for a year and deciding to stay in the USA, we faced the difficult choice of how to choose the right Realtor. Through recommendations, we took the plunge and what could have been a nightmare of a process became a dream. Sheila’s dedication and knowledge to clients was always very clear and nothing was ever a problem.  This was particularly proven when even 8000 miles away and a time difference, Sheila was constantly sending mail with our prospective retirement home and finding tenants for our other homes. It is very rare to find anyone in any business who will actually take the time to listen to what you are looking for and follow through. There is no doubt that not only does she love her job, but also a genuine motivation to find the perfect home for the client. 
 
Sheila Dowell is a name on my favorite cell number list, and I have absolutely no hesitation to recommend her and her team to everyone.

Client Review

Another review from one of Sheila’s pleased clients….

Sheila Dowell is not only a skilled and extremely savvy realtor, she also takes the time really listen to her clients and understand their visions, hopes, and needs. Her warm and professional presence is reassuring to both first-time client and seasoned ones alike. One really gets the sense that Sheila understands that while she does do an excellent job of helping people to buy and sell real estate…it’s really the people she cares about the most. I wouldn’t trust my home – whether finding or letting one go – to anyone else.

Re:  Sale of 86 Racing Cloud Court

 To Whom It May Concern:

 From pre-listing through closing, Sheila demonstrated her professionalism, experience and education.  She helped us decide the best time to list and how to prepare our home to show its best.  The listing photos and Sheila’s description of our home and its features were key to enticing buyers to come take a look – even from overseas!  Her industry knowledge and professionalism overcame a difficult appraisal and inspection process, ultimately finding us the perfect buyer at our list price.  Thank you so much, Sheila.  You are the best!!

Sincerely,

Michael & Pam Forde
