Customer Testimonial

The Linda Frierdich Real Estate Group

Buyer Rating:

My real estate agent was Sam Row. I had been referred to him by family and friends, which had spoke highly of Sam. My overall experience working with Sam Row exceeded my expectation. I would not hesitate to refer a friend or family member to Sam. He did an amazing job searching for the home I hope to live in for many years to come. Sam explain the process thoroughly. Sam was always available or would return my phone calls as soon as possible. To summarize my experience working with Sam into word would be excellent! - Ryan Harris, Columbia January 2017

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
