Customer Testimonial

The Linda Frierdich Real Estate Group

Seller Rating:

We were referred to Kim by a friend. I called her immediately and when she called back, she cared about our home and what are feelings were due to being under pressure right away. When she came to see our home, we feel in love with her. Once she left, we didn't look anywhere else. She was just a phone call away. - Robert Lelly Millstadt I November 2016

The Veliz-Vice Team

Buyer Rating:

Raquel was extremely accessible and answered my questions and concerns in a timely manner. She helped me with some lighting tips for my walk in closet and laundry room. She also arranged for me to see a neighbor's finished basement so that I could get an idea of what mine would look like.

Raquel is smart and helpful and I don't think you could find anyone better. - Kendra Schillinger, Nort November 2016

Mandy McGuire

Buyer Rating:

Mandy was extremely helpful in helping my wife and I find our new house! She had 3 locations picked for us to view but we only need to see the one in person to decide that is what we wanted.

She was always a phone call away and the moving check list she gave us worked wonders as well.

If we ever move again Mandy would be our first and only choice! - Adam Reinhold, Columbia November 2016

Tammy Wampler

Seller Rating:

Tammy was very responsive and available any time I needed her. She is a shrewd negotiator and always had my best interests in mind. - Leslie Sullivan October 2016

The Linda Frierdich Real Estate Group

Buyer Rating:

My personal situation was stressful and when I met Whitney I explained this to her. She was never judgmental, she was always very, very kind and helpful. She encouraged me to hang in there but never pressured me. I needed to get my other home in order and she was very patient with that and when I was ready she was right there to help me in my next step. I feel truly blessed to have met Whitney. The process of buying a home can be so stressful but Whitney and her entire team made it so smooth for me. If I had any questions, Whitney was right there to answer them, to reassure me that everything was fine and to let her worry about it and not me. Century 21 Advantage should feel very, very honored to have such a wonderful person working for them. She represents this company as well as all the other amazing people I met and this is an absolutely unbelievable team of people to work with. Thank you Whitney and everyone else that touched my life during this process. I highly recommend Whitney and Century 21 Advantage to everyone. - Judy F., Waterloo, Il October 2016

I would strongly recommend her to others. - Ray Pour, Swansea, Il August 2016

Gail Lyerla

Seller Rating:

Gail Lyerla was a perfect fit for my situation. I had a unique house in a small rural town. A tough sell for anyone. She was patient and yet took advantage of all opportunities to drum up interest in my home. She was friendly, professional, considerate, and even compassionate and empathetic to my situation. It was very comforting having her along on this journey. I would call upon Gail again if the opportunity presented itself and also recommend her to anyone. - Jay Lipinski, St. Louis July 2016

Jessica was fantastic! She was a true professional and we felt like she really listened to what we needed and wanted in a new home.

Buyer Rating:

We had quite a few ups and downs in our buying experience but Brad did an excellent job and was very helpful. He remained professional when our sellers did not and I would absolutely recommend Brad to anyone buying or selling a home! - Rachel Troy, Il October 2016

Mandy McGuire

Seller Rating:

Mandy, was great and we had a great time working with her. Selling the condo was easy and when we decided to buy in Columbia, Mandy did a great job with us on that as well. I think we were the first people to put an offer in on a house after looking at it for only 20 minutes on the first visit!

My wife and I have and will continue to recommend Mandy to anyone looking to buy or sell in Columbia and surrounding areas. She was friendly, personable and very easy to talk with about all concerns we had on both selling and buying. - Adam Reinhold, Columbia October 2016
