My husband and I moved out of our previous twin home into a new twin home at the end of March 2009. The twin home was listed with another realtor at that time. Not only did that realtor not work to sell our home, he never even bothered to send our copy of the contract we signed with him.

In mid October on a Monday, we received a call from Rob Monson, of ReMax Results, where he informed us that our twin home had been off the market for two weeks. The previous realtor had not contacted us at all for over two months, so we were unaware that it was off the market. 

We set up a meeting with Rob Monson for the next day & at that time signed w ReMax Results. On Wed he sent his professional photographer to take pictures of the home for the web virtual tour. On Thursday a For Sale sign had been placed on the lawn and the house pictures were on the web. The pictures were awesome. On Friday they have a first showing followed by a couple more showings that first weekend. By the following Monday, one week after that introductory call, we already had an offer & the person buying wanted to close on Nov 20th, which would have been 30 days after ReMax Results had put the house on the market.

Needless to say, we were very pleased that Rob had taken the initiative to contact us. We will definitely refer others to ReMax Results, the service & communication with them was excellent.
