Selecting a realtor team can be a daunting task…that is, until you meet Gloria Shepard and Kathy Lysaught. They will make your search an easy one. If we could describe them in a word it would be “professional.” Their combined knowledge and years of experience make for a dynamic team. Selling and purchasing a home is more than a sale transaction. It requires an agent to bea good listener, counselor, hand-holder, cheerleader, knowing or finding the answers to myriad questions, and ensuring there aren’t any surprises.
We worked with Gloria and Kathy in both the sale of our house and the purchase of a new one. The house sold very quickly andwas negotiated by Gloria while she was attending a Realtor Convention in France. Time zone differences! Sleep? She was amazing as she worked all night to get the best deal from multiple offers. Her attention to detail was spectacular and everything went perfectly. We were really glad that they were on our side of the negotiations!
Then onto finding a house to move into. Kathy has the patience of Job. She took us to view multiple homes and gave us a very honest assessment of each house so that we could make the right decision for us. I loved that she kept telling us that “downsizing is a verb.” She is very knowledgeable about the real estate trends in our area and networked and respected by other agents. We had a narrow timeframe, and she masterfully guided us in this process.
We have worked with many realtors through our lives, but none were as skilled and knowledgeable about the market, laws, and regulations as these two are. They were a joy to work with, and we have recommended them to everyone we know. We plan to move again in a few years and know that they will be there for us once again.
