Testimonials for Judy Goodman

This is a letter of recommendation from us for Ms. Judy Goodman, a licensed realtor in Madison, AL and Clarksville, TN. We began searching for homes in Huntsville AL in January of 2013 and found Judy’s name connected with an MLS listing that we wanted more information about. We made contact via email and set up our first meeting when we planned on visiting the
Huntsville area. We requested that she send other MLS listings that met the criteria we specified via email, so we could evaluate available homes prior to our visit. We met on four occasions in Huntsville between January and April of 2013 and corresponded frequently via email about many homes, after returning to our present home in Knoxville. During this time, we also received frequent updates of new listings on the market from her.
Since this was going to be our retirement home and I (Jim) planned on retiring in May of this year, we wanted the ‘perfect’ home in our price range and did not want to move too fast in making a decision. Judy has been very understanding of our needs and of our indecisiveness with selecting a home. All of our previous long distance moves were due to job changes or transfers and this time we planned on ‘taking our time.’ Over the years, we purchased many homes and have worked with many realtors, with Judy being the most understanding and patient realtor we have ever worked with. She not only took us around to look at homes while in the Huntsville area but acted on our behalf with 3 different builders, when we instead considered building a custom home. She is knowledgeable of the building industry, having
worked previously in construction and she negotiated with the builders on our behalf.
Being a military veteran and a professional mental health therapist should have made me (Jim) more knowledgeable about the stress of selecting a home that would not be considered temporary, as most prior homes that we purchased in the past were. Based on her personal and professional experiences (military, construction, real estate), Judy appears to be much
more knowledgeable about retirement planning than I am. That knowledge and her patience has helped us narrow the selection of homes and identify what is most important, since we can always find imperfection in the process of choosing a home because of the enormous financial commitment involved.
We recommend Judy as your realtor without any reservation and expect that she will continue to be extremely helpful to others facing relocation and retirement decisions such as ours. She significantly exceeded our expectations!
