Helped to make the often stressful process of buying a new home a breeze.
During our search for a new home, we found Joe’s knowledge of the Athens real estate market to be great. He listened to our goals and wants, then helped us refine our search to find a great home in a wonderful neighborhood. His insight into areas such as location, market trends, and home design allowed us to look past the marketing hype to find the “needle in the haystack” that best fit our needs and wants.

Mar was the consummate professional in all aspects of the process
Other than a home I built 31 years ago, this was my first experience purchasing a home. Mar was the consummate professional in all aspects of the process. In addition, she is also an extremely nice person. She made the entire process smooth and painless. It was a pleasure to be associated with her in this transaction.
Very Likely to Recommend
Mar was fantastic throughout our entire home buying experience. We relocated from Maryland during the worst of the Pandemic. We were limited in time to find a house as well as resources available because of sweeping closures. We have very specific, difficult taste in houses- we wanted an old, historic home. Mar went to locations and took video tours for us before we came down. Then Mar set aside a whole weekend and drove for miles in the areas surrounding Athens so we could see homes that were spread out everywhere. She was incredibly gracious in leading us though the process of finding exactly what we were looking for. When we found our dream home, she was amazing at representing our interests through renegotiations due to appraisal issues and difficult sellers all while we were states away. Before we found Mar, we spoke to other realtors who continually tried to convince us to buy something more in line with the average home buyer- new and modern. We were blessed to find someone who was willing to go the distance and take a lot of tours of old fixer-uppers and to advise us through the difficult process of inspecting and appraising an old, one-of-a-kind home that was the right fit for us. We wholeheartedly recommend Mar. She is down-to-earth, easy to talk to, professional, prompt, and is invested in doing what's right for her client. We could not have asked for a better Realtor.
