Working with The Bates Group was an absolute pleasure overall. We spoke about my interest in purchasing my first home. They then had me answer a short questionnaire so they could begin the search for the home that would fit my wants and needs the best. Phone calls and emails were very frequent between us to ensure I wouldn't miss any new listing that may have popped up. With this being my first home, I was very eager to jump at the first thing that I saw. They gave me the advice to make sure it is really what I want and that I wasn't impulse buying. Thankfully I took the advice. After looking at a few homes, we finally came across the one that would not only fit my needs but also the needs of my children. The contract was submitted and the negotiating began. After everything was agreed upon, everything was smooth sailing from there. They also helped me find my home inspection and radon test company. It was like having your own personal cheerleader squad in your corner when it came time to close. They made sure you were excited about the moment and weren't having any doubts. You can't go wrong when choosing this company to buy or sell property. When the time comes to move to a bigger home, I definitely will be using them again!
