Your enthusiasm, suggestions and marketing plan worked...I had a contract on my house in less than 10 days!I interviewed three real estate agents before hiring you.

Z Newell was an excellent knowledgeable pro active agent. He (gave us the necessary advise) and ...had the pictures on the web within 6 hours of taking them. The house had a showing within the first 24 hrs. The third people to look at the house made an offer that was too good to refuse....The overall experience was great...At the same time we were working with another realtor in another state selling a second home. The difference between the Realtors is like night and day. We had a terrible experience and ended up taking the house off of the market...never to do business with that Realtor again. Thanks Z for an awesome experience at a very emotional time in our lives!~Connie & Fred Kyes-Myland (Sellers)         * * * * * * *  * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *    Out-of-Town Buyer: Our experience with Z was very unique. We bought a house before we actually met him personally, or even saw the house! Z took my info over the phone about specific qualities we wanted for our new home. We were relocating from Texas  to KY. He then emailed us all homes matching our credentials. When the right home showed up in our location, school district and price range, it was a rare find and he knew it would move quickly. Z went to work for us and quickly VIDEOED AND EMAILED US THE PROPERTY. We made an offer contingent on seeing the property a few days later, and were able to beat out two other offers on the property!  Z went the extra mile in a day that was like a marathon race. He secured our offer and we have been extremely happy in our new home!~Ron and Lisa W.

(Buyers)         * * * * * * *  * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *   First-time Buyer experience... This is the first time we purchased a home and Z took the time to walk us through the whole process. He provided helpful information and allowed us to make our own decisions. He was always willing to return our phone calls, no matter what time of the day it was. He was very friendly and made purchasing our first home relaxing and enjoyable.~Michelle F. and Clark L.(Buyers)         * * * * * * *  * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *    Knows the business very well... Ivan was very helpful. He knows the business very well and helped us through the looking and buying sequence.

We feel that 'Z' went "beyond the call of duty" to be of service. He was professional, gracious, and patient -- never did we feel pressure to move more quickly than we were ready to. We grew to trust Z and depended upon his knowledge and expertise.

"Z truly was an advocate when we sold our home. He educated us on all the ins and outs of the process. We closed on our home in less than a month. From inspector to incompetent realtors to militant appraisers, Z took care of every detail timely and efficiently. I can honestly say I am glad Z was on our side and not theirs." ~Kimbie & Paul Alexander (Sellers)         * * * * * * *  * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *    Knowledgeable, persistent and fastidious... "If you or your friends are looking for a knowledgeable, persistent and fastidious agent to represent your real estate interests, you could not do better than Z Newell." ~Robert Trombley (Seller)         * * * * * * *  * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *    Never too busy to talk to us... "We just wanted to take a moment to tell you how much we appreciated ALL your hard work. You never were too busy to talk to us, always kept us informed and gave words of encouragement when we were down. I am SO GLAD we listed the house with you and will never hesitate to refer customers!" ~Trish & TJ Tomlin (Buyers AND Sellers!)         * * * * * * *  * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *   Lexington, KY homes for sale For Sale By Owner..."We had been trying to sell our home using the "for Sale By Owner" method for 5 weeks....Many Realtors approached us, but frequently it seemed with a barely disguised irritated attitude that we weren't using a Realtor. After meeting with...Z,...we found that [he] greatly eased the process, smoothly coordinating everything....He charged us a very reasonable commission; in retrospect, my wife and I felt that he had more than earned his money. He is a great, personable Realtor, with a wealth of knowledge about the Lexington real estate market. His abilities and experience definitely helped us sell our home, with minimal hassles...I would strongly recommend him without hesitation to anyone considering the For Sale by Owner method, as his talents optimize the chances of, and minimize the time wasted in, selling one's home." ~John Finnie (Seller)         * * * * * * *  * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *   More than patient... "Z was more than patient with us.  We looked at vastly different price ranges and areas; probably 50 properties and he never really lost his patience with us.  I can't complain."~Brandi Whitman (out of area Buyer)         * * * * * * *  * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *
