In addition to the fact that Dwayne is a genuinely nice person, it is worth observing two important things: (1) Dwayne is a consummate professional. We moved from another state and had no local acquaintances. Not only was he able to make introductions to value-added vendors for everything we needed (general contractors, painters, etc.), but also to move with alacrity, regardless of the need. He offered general market overview, price view of our target market, availability, locations and gave us an understanding of what we should have been aiming for. Dwayne offered a tireless diplomacy as between our sellers and us, including calm, objective, and ultimately prudent advice at various stages along the way. It was a smoother buying process than either of us ever could have anticipated.
(2) Dwayne went well above and far beyond any reasonable expectation of a realtor. We moved to North Carolina in April and had to wait until our house in CT was sold. Dwayne was super helpful recommending apartment complexes where we could rent while we were selling our house and getting familiar with the area, all before we ever made it to NC. In addition to general market information, he also started narrowing down neighborhoods, housing recommendations, and the like – all before we even formally engaged with him.
And I specifically mention, especially because nowadays it’s a rare treat, Dwayne was always super responsive. Whatever question we had, he responded within minutes, if not with the solution right away, then with an acknowledgement and time estimates. Even a couple of months after we closed the purchase, we continued to ask Dwayne for referrals and always got responses right away from him and/or his team. Should you be contemplating the sale of your home or the purchase of a new home, we would recommend Dwayne Leatherwood fully and without reservation.
