Start to finish, C. Ray was there for me. He promptly answered countless questions I had about buying my first home in the 463 emails, countless text messages and phone calls I sent him about every imaginable question I had about home buying in the two months we intensely worked together to purchase the house and transform it from a building to a place I am now happy to call my home. He is intelligent, has a wonderful sense of humor, and is committed to going above and beyond the call of duty morning, noon and night to address any and all questions and concerns involved in buying a house. I was consistently impressed by him, his patience with my infinite list of questions, and his knowledge about every imaginable house buying topic. He is also an outstanding listener and fantastic negotiator. This is so handy especially when it comes to negotiating a price on the house and anything that goes wrong before, during and afterward. When there was an unexpected flood in the house right after I bought it, he got the previous owner to pay for it by using a licensed plumber. He even drove out of his way as many times as it took to supervise the plumber to make sure he fixed it correctly. When the water softener broke after I moved in, he walked me through that process too, so I would get it fixed and covered by the home warranty. No matter what the issue is, he addressed and handled it satisfactorily start to finish. Now, I finally understand what it means when someone says, "he has got my back." Choosing him as my real estate agent is one of the best decisions I ever made.
