BEST home buying experience!! Having Emo as our buying agent was an incredible! Not only does he have extensive knowledge in the area, he genuinely works with his client's best interests in mind. He's honest, frank, and "keeps it real"... always looking for potential pitfalls and issues. Emo keeps the emotion out of it and maintains the voice of reason with his clients. When a issue or problem arises, he's honest and comes to the table with solutions. Emo is a true professional!
Emo did just about everything you could ask of an agent when purchasing your first place. He walked me through the steps I would need to take, all my available options and advised me when needed. When it came time to make an offer, Emo was responsive and able to handle the transaction immediately. The entire process I felt at ease knowing he was on top of the situation.
We have both bought and sold with Emo. He is extremely professional, attentive, and never leaves any doubt that his clients come first. He knows the area, and the local market inside and out. He took the time to thouroughly explain what to expect and the pros and cons of various neighborhoods. His extensive contacts help ensure all inspections, tasks, and work needed are completed efficiently, thouroughly and quickly throughout the process. He gives constant updates and never leaves you wondering where things stand. I was never in doubt that we got the best deal possible for both buying and selling through his negotiation skills. It is obvious that Emo enjoys what he does and that ensuring his clients have a good experience during what can be a stressful time is his top priority. Bottom line is that he's the best realtor I've had and would not hesitate to recommend him.
I wasn't even sure we could do what we wanted to do. Emo looked at the numbers and was very honest about what we could afford in a house and what we could expect to get for my house. He then found a house that we loved. He was able to negotiate a contingency offer for $15,000 less than the asking price! Then he sold my home the first day it was listed, for an amazing cash offer. Both homes were to close on the same day. However, the inspection on the new home turned up some unsafe, expensive needed repairs. Neither the seller nor I had the money. Emo got bids and negotiated with the seller and a contractor to do the work in escrow! (kind of unheard of ) He then negotiated for me to stay in my home after the sale while the construction was going on in the new place! also kind of unheard of). Emo also has such a great and personable personality, you feel almost like a good friend or family member. Even though he had many other clients, he makes you feel like you're the only one!
Emo Rowe was spectacular from start to finish. We set a plan, marketing, staging, appraisal, and timing. It couldn't have gone better. SOLD FOR $165,000 OVER ASKING. Emo then changed gears to purchase our next house. BOUGHT IT FOR 23K BELOW ASKING PRICE AND 5K BELOW APPRAISAL. Emo's biggest asset, besides a tireless work ethic, is his superior negotiation skills. I would not hesitate to recommend Emo to anyone wanting to sell or buy a home.
