Comments on our service from past clients:

"My agent, Ken Gaertner, did a terrific job & I really appreciate all his help! I also liked the fact that everyone was willing to help out when Ken was on vacation. I LOVE my new house!"
Lisa C.

"This is just a quick note to thank you for all your effort in helping us buy our new home. As you know, we've moved many times over the last twenty years and we've used a number of real estate companies. Nobody else has come close to the service you and your company provided. We would never use the "traditional" methods again. It is kind of funny because when we first read about your service we really thought it was too good to be true. We are believers now."
Larry Grisham.

"We are very happy with our house. Please feel free to use us as references."
Deano Smith & Ella Atkins

"They were extremely helpful, friendly, and nice people. I was treated with respect, something which I, being a single woman, appreciated very much. Four month later, I'm still very happy with my house and do continue referring friends to the Buyer's Agent."
C. Lamb.

"To the prospective home buyer:

The biggest obstacle I faced as a first-time home buyer was choosing a real estate agent. I knew I wanted a house, I knew I could afford it, and I knew it was the right time, but how would I find an agent that wouldn't try to talk me into buying a home that a colleague needed to unload? The prospect was like buying a car, only 10 times the price, and potentially, 10 times the strees. I read about the Buyer's Agent of Ann Arbor and attended two home-buying seminars--I made my decision to use their services about halfway through the first seminar. I realized they weren't going to sell me anything - that was the key - they were going to help me buy a house. And they were going to help me find the right house for my needs, not theirs.

I highly recommend the services of the Buyer's Agent--Tim Janssen in particular, though everyone in the Ann Arbor office was very helpful. Tim was open and friendly and understood my concerns at our first meeting. He immediately provided e-mail listings that suited my preferences and directed me to a local lender that I could trust. With my work schedule, I did not have the time or patience to wade through unnecessary details. As we looked at various homes, Tim worked with my schedule, was always dependable, and always provided his honest opinion. He never showed me homes that were out of my price range or tried to "sell" me on a property that didn't suit my needs. After the inspection, he followed through on more particulars than I can remember, and went above and beyond my expectations at every turn. The entire process - from my initial consltation with Tim to the closing - was about as stress-free as a home purchase can be. There is true value in choosing a real estate agent who is on the buyer's side, and I highly recommend Tim Janssen's services."

Dana Randall

"I want to thank the Buyer's Agent for all the great work that was done on our behalf. There was no comparison between the Buyer's Agent and our previous experience with a seller's realtor. After showing us several houses, our seller's realtor pressured us to start making offers. We ended up finding our house on our own, during a period where she wasn't returning our phone calls. She then gave us incorrect information about obtaining a mortgage, steering us to a company with a noncompetitive rate with the explanation that we could only qualify for that company.

Being gun shy from my previous house buying experience made me want only the very best. Over time I realized what a great agent Ralph is. He thoroughly inspected every prospective house, even with our two young children running about. Ralph would conduct the inspection, educate me, and interact with our kids at the same time! He had a great rapport with our entire family. He never showed any disappointment when we rejected a prospective house, instead emphasizing the importance of finding the house that was best for us. Kim and I were going from starter house to "dream" house, and we had very different criteria. We looked at many houses over a 4 month period, making 4 offers on two other houses. Through it all, Ralph operated in a highly professional manner. In addition, he got us a great mortgage rate from the Money Source.

Jon Boyd was also a tremendous help. He stayed informed of our progress and co-inspected several houses. When Ralph was unavailable, Jon always quickly responded to our calls and helped in many ways. He played a crucial role in negotiating the purchase agreements and the special assessment costs at the closing.

Overall, I can't say enough of the fabulous treatment the Buyer's Agent has given us. It is rare these days to get great service, and it usually come at a high price. The buyer's agent not only saved us thousands, they provided great service. I only wish more people knew of you."

P. Keller & Dr. K Keller.

"Our Agent saved us over $7,000 on our home purchase. As a first-time home buyer, our Buyer's Agent (Jon Boyd) helped us in so many ways. Without his help, I doubt we would be as satisfied as we are with our decision. We've already recommended the Buyer's Agent to two friends who are looking for a house to buy!"
Paul M. & JoAnn P.

"I really felt Jon from The Home Buyer's Agent was working in our interest and as a result I felt much more confident about the whole thing. I can't imagine doing it any other way. He actually did the calculations to show the house we wanted to buy was not within our target budget; he talked us out of buying a house! I never felt he was pushing any house on us. Now that it is done we are ecstatic about the house we purchased with The Buyer's Agent."
Judy Barlas & Bruce Sagan (Note: This was their third home purchase.)

"Wonderful! I think it is terrific that you do all you do for home buyers!"

Dr. Ashoka Jinka

"We love our new house! We have recommended you to a lot of people."
