Recently Annette helped my wife and I, my sister and her husband purchase a home near Beaufort, SC. We live in Missouri, my sister lives in Colorado and her husband commutes to Philadelphia. We contacted Annette to help us located property as a buyers agent. She responded quickly to every request we had, she lined up ten properties based upon our criteria, showed the homes all on a single Saturday, directed us to the best property available, assisted in the offer and purchase process. She was always forthright, helpful, insightful and by far the best agent we have ever worked with.
Annette rates 5 Stars PLUS! We wanted a waterfront home in the Beaufort area and she helped us find the perfect house, far better than our hopes and vision and less than our budget. Her knowledge of the market, area, and process can only be described as astounding. She took care of the smallest of details to make the purchase process smooth and calming. She referred us to other local companies for the legal, title, home inspection, survey work and they ALL proved to be ultimately professional, thorough reasonably priced, caring, and easy to work with.
She has a caring personality and charm you seldom find. She listens to what you want and more importantly translates and adds to it in the reality of the area. She simply IS the agent you want to work with and represent you in the Beaufort area. Everybody seems to be a realtor these days, but she sets the standard and the bar is high. True review - she worked her fanny off for us!
To all military members - Annette Bryant is absolutely the best agent you can have.
My story: the property located in SC was a rental home that we hadn't seen in 10 years but had used a property manager to mange. We were currently retiring from Japan (13 hours time difference) and wanted to sell this rental before we built a new home in FL. We knew there'd be some challenges but I asked Annette if she could sell it with a small profit but fast so it wouldn't drag muddy our financing for our new home.
She took the project on despite knowing the complete picture. She stated she was intimately familiar with the community and contractors as well as property management.
She immediately got a great offer from another military family. But the home inspection showed that our home needed:
1. A new roof
2. A new HVAC
3. Replace the plumbing in entire house
4. Repair leaks
5. Rip out and replace the subfloor in bathroom due to toilet leak over years
6. Get termite report clear
7. And the list goes on and on and on...
If I were, I would have politely told me that it was beyond the scope of her work. But for whatever reason, a glutton for punishment or just a professional looking out for overseas military families she played General Contractor for the next two months getting multiple bids on each project, sending them to me, explaining them to me, reviewing the contractors work each day (even so much as counting their materials), had to fire one contractor that kept "finding more stuff to do" etc. She did this and kept me abreast each and every time there was a change despite me being in Japan the entire time.
21K in repairs later, I realize that I could NOT HAVE SOLD THIS HOUSE WITHOUT ANNETTE BRYANT. The lack of upkeep on my property manager's part turned our rental into a money pit that Annette managed to repair, fix, and sell in 60 days all the while with me half a world away.
If you are military or just want the best agent in town, I cannot stress enough Annette will ensure you get a good deal, explain all the reasons behind any recommendation she makes, and sell that house.
Her 6% commission was earned twice over this time.
I's great to work with someone who knows the area between Hilton head and Savannaha. She knew the market and understood what we were looing for. She did not try to sell us a house, but us a house we would enjoy.
I have recommended her to friends and they are currently in the process of purchasing a house from her as well. She was great a helping with a last minute sell of our home due to a government shut down.
Annette, provided very excellent support in all aspects of the process of selling our home. She is very professional, a very hard worker, offers great advice, and communicates very well.
I'd highly recommend her for residential real estate engagements.
Annette made our first time buying experience a what would seem a nightmare a breeze. Her local knowledge and experience with the system helped to help us make decisions we wouldn't have been able to. From day one we felt like a family member not just another client. Being in the service its hard to find time to get to all the processes that come with buying, Annette not only made her schedule flexible to help us but also went above and beyond helping to ensure we had everything we needed done. I would and have recommended her to people buying a house in this area. We still live in and are happy to call our house home and we couldn't of done it without her. Thank you Annette!
Annette is the greatest real estate agent that I have come across in quite some time. We told her what we would like to have and she found it. I am so glad I fired the other real estate agent who never evens bowed the house we live in. Our house is a perfect match for our life style. Thank you Annette you are the best!!!!!
Annette was extremely knowledgeable and helpful through every step of our home buying process. She explained everything in simple terms, something that was extremely helpful for us as this is the first home we have purchased. Annette made herself available to us 24/7 through the home buying process. She is also very professional and kind. We highly recommend Annette to anyone looking to buy a home!
