Setting the Price

Testimonials

Richard and Mary Ann went above and beyond in selling our home. We had been trying to sell our house since 2004 when we moved to Florida because of a job relocation. We had listed the house with multiple realtors during the five years since 2004 but were unable to sell it. While facing foreclosure in 2009, we decided one last time to list it with DFWRealty. Richard and Mary Ann successfully worked with us long distance. It is always difficult trying to sell a home in one state while living in another. The reason Richard and Mary Ann were successful in selling our home while others weren't was because they were able to communicate with us and stay on top of the details that we were unable to because we lived out of the state. Instead of our credit getting dinged for 10 years because of foreclosure, we were able to save our credit by selling our home to another family who will be able to enjoy it. Ron and Debbie M.
