Testimonials for Cal Yoder
Cal Yoder was fantastic! His integrity is beyond reproach. You can trust his instincts and his advice. He is great to work with. We also bought a home through him and his negotiation skills helped immensely.
We could hardly believe all the activity once we put our home on the market to sell. Some days we had several showings and we had a solid offer just three days after it listed! Cal, however, told us another offer was being prepared and advised us to ask for an extension on the first, which we did. We accepted the second offer and our home was sold just five days after it was listed!
We couldn't have asked for a smoother process and Cal was great from start to finish. He is a wonderful listener and very easy to work with. He may not appear as aggressive as other agents or brokers, but don't let that fool you. He is amazing.
