“This was an excellent experience for me being a first time home buyer, Elma made the process so much easier with her knowledge and dedication. Thanks guys for a wonderful experience.”
“Peter was such a pleasure to work with! He was tremendously patient and accommodating as we searched. We had so many questions to which he was able to answer. Additionally, when we contacted him with a few questions a few months after we bought our home, he still responded promptly! He made our experience of buying our first home a great one!”
“The BEST! Definitely would recommend Elma and Peter anytime. So helpful and responsive. Couldn’t be happier.” -Jim and Sylvia Willis
“Peter Easling listened to precisely what we were looking for in a home, and he really delivered. I highly recommend Peter. He is professional, courteous and intelligent. He doesn’t waste time showing homes just to show homes. He either answers the phone or he will call you back in a matter of minutes, a lost art these days.”
“Elma was my realtor last summer and was very helpful in assisting me with buying my dream home. As a first time home buyer, I was very inexperienced in the whole real estate area and Elma helped us through every step of the way in a clear and timely manner. She is very knowledgable and personable, you will not regret working with her. We are loving our new home! Thanks Elma.”
“My wife and I bought a house with Peter Easling as our agent in 2011. The experience was great. Peter was completely prepared and well studied when we met with him. Everything we asked him to do was not only done, but done in a timely and efficient manner. He’s the only person I would consider to list my house for sale or help us find a new home. Not only was he a great agent, but eventually he and his wife Elma became great friends with my family. They were even there and helped with my son l…
This is a “shout out” for Elma! She definitely receives a 5 STAR rating from us. Thank you, Elma, for walking us through the process, which was made more difficult since we were acting on behalf of parents living across the state. You were professional, yet so congenial, so extremely helpful … always going the extra mile. We hope we have many, many opportunities to refer others to you!
“This was one of the best home buying experiences I have had. Our agent Elma Easling was quick to respond to all of our concerns and provided any information we requested. I would recommend Elma to anyone I meet looking to either buy or sell their home.”
“Elma is a great listener, and really helped guide us through our first home purchase by explaining things along the way and answering any questions we had. She was easy to work with, and worked very hard to make sure we were satisfied. She was prompt with returning calls, tracking down information, and was always available when we had questions. We would recommend Elma to anyone we know looking to buy a house, and we look forward to working with her again in the future.”
“Elma Easling with VERY PROFESSIONAL with me and my wife during our home buying experience. She ALWAYS communicated with us as to the status of what was going on. I’d recommend her to any home buyer. Elma, you were the BEST !!!!!!!!!!”
