What my clients say…

Dear Norm,

We want you to know that we appreciated all of the support and attention to detail that you gave to our recent home sale.

We never expected to see a buyer and a closing all taking place in just three weeks but that time table helped us to achieve our goals.  Rosemary and I appreciated the personal service you provided and the integrity you displayed.

Sincerely,

Greg L. Soltis and Rosemary Russo

Dear Norm,
You probably know that finding a home is one of the three most stressful events in one’s life.  Well, that wasn’t the case for us with you as our realtor.  Your calm demeanor and talent for listening to what we actually wanted, (not just showing what was out there) made the whole experience fun.

Thank you so much for everything.  It was a pleasure working with you.

Dear Norm,
During our transition from Tampa, FL to northern Virginia, your assistance helping us understand the market, its neighborhoods, and services was invaluable to us when faced with the task of narrowing our choices.  You took time to understand our requirements and presented us with a variety of options

from which to make our final choice.  Throughout our search process you made yourself accessible either in person, or via telephone to show us properties and answer any questions.

Once we made our choice, your help during the price negotiations, with a detailed market assessment and your knowledge of the area, allowed us to purchase our house at a price that was $20,000 under the list price.  Without your knowledge of market conditions, we’re not sure if we would have been able to reach an agreement so quickly and effortlessly.

Again, thanks for all your help and for making the move so easy for the whole family.

Norm did an excellent job representing my wife and I on the sale of our home. Norm not only sold the home quickly during a downturn in the Real Estate market but he sold it for a higher price than we expected to sell it for! He is very detailed, hard-working, and patient with the explanation of procedures, forms, market analysis, etc.

Norm Odeneal, realtor for the Johnson Family residing in Billings, Montana, has been efficient in selling my condo in Falls Church, Virginia. I met Norm once while I was in Virginia. He came prepared with comparable condos in the vicinity so that we could list the condo at a “selling price”. After that meeting I returned to Billings and we corresponded via phone and email.  He handled the entire sale while I was 2000 miles away. Norm is responsible, reliable, honest, and sensible. I trusted his judgment and his advice.  I highly recommend Norm to be “your real estate agent”.  You may call me at 406 248 8332 if you have questions.

My husband and I had quite an assignment on our hands.  At the time we were engaged to be married and looking to sell my husband’s old house and purchase a new one in the N Arlington area, all while facilitating my move from NJ.  Knowing how complicated the market had become, and having had a bad experience with a previous realtor, my husband decided to interview a few realtors before committing to one.  Norm Odeneal was one of them.  Almost immediately, he was the choice. His professional and compassionate demeanor put us at ease and we were confident that we made the right decision.

 

Norm put a “coming soon” sign in front of the house – and almost immediately after the “for sale” sign replaced it, there were realtors knocking at the door.  The house was sold in one day to a buyer with cash, he was only the second potential buyer in the house.  The closing went smoothly and we rented back for 1 month.

 

Ok, so the house was sold, now what?  We were diligently searching for just the right house for us.  I was not always available to be in town when Norm had a house to show us, and he was so patient when my husband had to walk through houses and describe each room to me.  Norm was tremendous.  His attention to our needs and our aggressive schedule was such a welcome change.  When we didn’t like a house, he wanted to know why – was it the location?  The garage?  The street? He took every comment we gave him and registered it – and it wasn’t long before we found the perfect home for us.  The closing went smoothly again – and we’ve been in our home since May 2010.

 

I would recommend Norm Odeneal to anyone looking to sell and/or buy a home in the area. He was so attentive to our needs and although we knew he was busy with other clients, we felt like the only ones.  There are so many realtors out there, I wonder how we got so lucky.

Dear Norm,

Just a note to thank you for your help and guidance in buying our new townhouse! We enjoyed working with you every step of the way.

Since we were new to the Arlington market, we really appreciated your guidance on selecting the right property for us and for negotiating with the seller to get us a price that allows us to do the necessary remodeling and updating of our unit. We couldn’t have anticipated all of the back-and-forth with the seller over inspection items, and we were glad to have your guidance throughout that process.

You took the time to listen to and understand the special requirements we had as a Foreign Service family that moves overseas frequently. We’re confident you found us not only a great home, but a great rental property. You really understand our unique needs and would be a great asset to any diplomatic or military family in the area!

We especially appreciate your excellent referrals – the mortgage company was fantastic in dealing with our unusual financial situation, got us a great rate, AND was able to bump us down a quarter-point right before closing! The contractor you recommended for our remodeling projects has also been a gem. He’s kept us on time and on budget and has been a complete pleasure to work with.

We can’t wait to invite you and your family to the pool. Thanks again for all of your help!

Sincerely,

George and Melissa Mathews
