RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement
As first time sellers in this hot market Wayne and the Schilstra team exceeded our expectations. Immediately after contacting Wayne we received prompt professional service and his knowledgeable hard-working team got the job done. We never expected over 70 viewings and 17 offers in 7 days and our home sold for 125% of the asking price. We highly recommend Wayne and his Team for any of your real estate needs.
We listed our house in Smithville with Wayne Schilstra based on a recommendation from a friend. He and his team were professional, upfront, thorough, and well in tune with the market. He went over and above to market our house to clients well outside the West Lincoln area, knowing the type of clients that would be interested in our house, and because of the higher price range it was in. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Wayne to any of our friends and family.
My experience with The Wayne Schilstra Team absolutely exceeded my expectations! I was undecided about selling my property for a very long time. Even once I made the decision to sell, I wasn't sure if there would be buyers and expected it to be a difficult sale. However, Wayne assured me that my property would sell and he was right. Within two weeks Wayne had two competing offers and I accepted an offer for $10,100 above the asking price. This was more than I expected. What I thought was going to be a difficult process was fast and worry-free.
Wayne & his team were excellent to deal with in the purchase of my property. They simplified the whole purchase process and made it easy to understand. Wayne & his team are valuable partners and I would highly recommend their services in any property transaction.
We made an excellent choice when we selected Wayne Schilstra of Remax Escarpment to represent us for the sale of our home. From the start he was professional, knowledgeable and helpful. His advice and knowledge of the area were invaluable. My wife and I are delighted with the sale price he negotiated for us from 5 offers and $40,000 over the listing price. All within a week of listing! We highly recommend him to anyone considering selling their home.
Our home sold for $31,100 over the asking price. Wayne guided us every step of the way - he negotiated, he brought in his stager to help us prepare the home, he brought in his professional photographer so when our home went on the market it looked amazing. Thanks Wayne for helping us achieve more than we expected.
