Success Stories From A Few Of My Clients
I submitted the following letter to the Fluor Corporation Relocation Department.
You recently handled my relocation to Greenville, SC, from Charlotte, NC, on behalf of Fluor Power resulting from the dissolution of Duke / Fluor Daniel. The Realtor that handled my relocation was Eddy Kicker. I strongly recommend that employees being relocated by Fluor in the future be advised of Eddy Kicker as a Realtor. He has a website that allows custom searches of all MLS listings including details of the property and photos, automated e-mail notification of new properties that fit the desired search criteria, and the ability to maintain a personal listing within the database of desired properties. This is really the tip of the iceberg. Mr. Kicker specializes in relocations and has a thorough knowledge of Greenville and the surrounding areas. He was exceptionally flexible, accessible, and knowledgeable without the pushy salesmanship often associated with Realtors. The properties he presented were in line with my wife and my desires and did not deviate for the sake of a quick commission. I am a notoriously hard person to please and do not give recommendations easily; however, the service provided by Eddy Kicker exemplifies the highest standards of client focus, service, and professionalism. I doubt there is a more capable Realtor in the area. Additionally, Mr. Kicker was very helpful in facilitating other areas of the relocation such as the selection of an extremely qualified home inspector and lawyer. He was available for the walk through and represented our interests as if they were his own. I welcome the opportunity to further discuss my experiences with yourself or future Fluor relocations. I hope that this recommendation will be a platform to better serve the employees of Fluor Corp. Sincerely, Justin Newton Sr. Project Controls Manager Seward Repowering Project
This is to let you know that we have moved into our new home and are enjoying the happiest moments of our lives. We could only accomplish this home purchase because of your sincere and timely advice in each step of the home buying process. It was a great pleasure working with you and I do not have words to express my gratitude for all your help and guidance. Please accept our sincere thanks and appreciation. We wish you all the best in your business for this year and years to come. Once again thanks for all your help. Sethu Nair
It is my distinct pleasure to be writing this letter of recommendation for the fantastic work, expertise and level of service provided by Mr. Kicker. My wife and I were in the process of moving from Chicago to the Greenville area and found Eddy through the South Carolina board of Realtors web-site. He came highly recommended and proved to be a valuable asset to the transition of our family to this area. Since my wife and I are both out going and sometimes very demanding, Eddy handled our needs and requirements with a great deal of honesty and integrity, which is hard to find in today’s business dealings. Eddy’s web site offered us the opportunity to evaluate homes and select ideal locations in the Greenville vicinity. Since we were going to be new to the area we relied upon Eddy to help guide us and inform us of the changes in culture, what to expect in the housing market and what would be a fair market value for any of the many homes we had looked at. Eddy never let us down and was always accommodating to the extent of giving up weekends to preview potential homes. After several months of looking and finally settling on a home, Eddy once again showed his true nature and gave us his expertise and help in making sure we were taken care of. From the initial contract to the inspections, walk through and event the final inspection and closing Eddy was always there. As I stated several times to Eddy, if I could have brought him to Chicago to sell my home, I would have. My wife and I had all the confidence and security in dealing with the professionalism that he displayed and never once questioned what he told us or the directions and suggestions he gave us. As I mentioned previously, it is my distinct pleasure and a honor to have been associated with Eddy Kicker. He is truly unique in an industry that has many questionable ethics. You could do no better than to have Eddy represent you in any real estate transaction. Dennis & Karen Moore
I've sold and purchased several homes and I want you to know this was my best experience by far. You made it easy for me-you handled or arranged and led me through the entire process. I have a very busy work schedule, but the people in my office were little aware that I was even looking let alone purchasing a home. Thanks again for everything you did for me. Judi Nichols
Many thanks for the time you spent with us last week. Greenville appears to be the perfect place for retirement. We really appreciated the "Chamber Of Commerce" tour you gave us so we could get a much better feel for Greenville. Now that we have the contract worked out on our new home, we can't wait to move. Thanks Again, Hal and Sue D.
You demonstrated professionalism and at the same time were relaxed and friendly. I was very impressed with the way you treated me when you sold my home then helped me in buying my new home. I now consider you a friend as well as my agent. Thanks so much for guiding me through the process. Tom Oliver
You were fantastic. We really felt you went out of your way to help us through the whole process. We will be delighted to recommend you to anyone we know who needs a Realtor. Julie and Chris Gooding
This letter is in regard to the excellent job Eddy Kicker did as our Realtor. We moved here from Orlando, Florida in February of this year. My husband was already here working for Nuvox. I found Eddy's website and started looking at the available homes. I had my husband contact Eddy and he asked questions about our likes, dislikes and needs. Eddy is extremely knowledgeable about the real estate market in Greenville and the surrounding cities. He suggested some homes, printed the materials and took my husband to looking on the weekends prior to my arrival. We found a home but the inspection report did not come back favorably. Eddy reminded us that this was a big investment and we should be satisfied with our purchase. We didn't buy that home but found one in Taylors that we love. Eddy was always available to talk to us or show us around. Once we found our home he walked through everything. We relied on his expertise. He kept in touch with us by phone and e-mail and event sent a list of things I needed to dow with telephone numbers to call, such as power company, cable, trash etc. We couldn't have done this without Eddy. In the past six years, we've made several moves but never dealt with a Realtor that inspired us to write a letter of recommendation. Anyone looking to buy a home will be very pleased with Eddy Kicker as their Realtor. Sincerely, Clyde and Alene King
You were the Greatest! You found us the perfect home in no time at all and only showed us homes that were in our price range and met our specifications. We never got discouraged during our search and your web site was so easy to use. We could get all the information about a home immediately and not waste time looking at homes that did not meet our needs.
Eddy is definetly the reason why we were so satisfied with the home buying process. Sincerely, Richard and Pamela Green
We wanted to thank you and tell you we appreicated all your help in finding our first home. You helped make the process as seamless as possible and we will definitely recommend you to our friends and family in search of a home in the future.
Again, we thank you. Laronda Farland and Michael Williams
EddyKicker.com is the most informative Realty web site for searching properties in the Greenville area. (I have surfed so many!) The convenience of this site and the fact that it is "user friendly" was a big plus for me. You made our home buying experience a happy event and we will always be grateful for the chance to work with the BEST Realtor in Greenville. Thanks for your kindness and expertise. The Best To You Always. Ken and Karen Stern
Choosing Eddy Kicker for your Realtor is a very wise decision. We found him using his impressive web site while relocating to SC from another state. Trying to find a house, let alone building one from over 1200 miles away, which we ended up doing, can be quite stressful. Eddy not only offered his extensive experience and unlimited time, but made us feel as though we were his only clients, which we knew not to be the case. He goes above and beyond what anyone can expect and is always available.
In today's high tech world, someone as personable and available as Eddy Kicker is rare to find. If you are looking for someone to make sure you get the result you are looking for, then choose Eddy Kicker as your Realtor. We can promise you that you will be pleased! Jeff & Susan Goetz
I would like to take a few minutes and thank you for the great job you did helping us get relocated to Greenville. As you know it was a big change for us moving from Florida to Greenville, especially during the winter. Your effort and dedication through the entire process reduced our stress significantly. Knowing that we could rely on you to represent our best interests in Greenville, we were able to focus on getting out of Florida. It was very helpful for you to be the focal point for all the transmissions of information. That way we were assured that nothing fell through the cracks. I was very grateful that you were able to be present during the home inspection which I was unable to attend. During the entire process you insured I had all the documents in a time frame that allowed me to review and sign prior to it causing a delay. As you were aware, we had a very tight time line between closing our home in Florida and the closing and moving into our Greenville home. I believe, if it was not for you we would not have made these dates and that the move would have costs us thousands of dollars more. Thank you so much for your help; you are a credit to the real estate industry. Everybody relocating to Greenville should be using you for their real estate transactions. You are the "King of Relo" in Greenville. Many Thanks, David and Fran Tinker
It has been almost a year since our initial house hunting trip to South Carolina and we wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all you did. We highly recommend you to any people who are looking for a home in the Greenville area. You were very responsive to our initial inquires (even before meeting us) and extremely knowledgeable about the area. You listened to what our needs were and based on what we said you found us the perfect home. The home that we purchased was not on our initial list of homes to view, but based on our first few hours together you brought us to our home. We really liked the neighborhood and found our home. Over the past few years we have had some "not real pleasant" experiences with Realtors and it was refreshing to work with you. If we or any of our friends need a Realtor we will be calling on you again. Sincerely, Jeff and Kim Dunlop
Kelly and I want to thank you sincerely for all of your help during the recent purchase of our new home. We absolutley love it. This home fits us perfectly and we are not sure if we will ever move again.
You were completely professional throughout the entire process and were always making sure our best interests were considered-even when that meant asking the builder difficult questions. Your candor representing us as clients was both reassuring and appreciated.
We also loved your sense of humor and working with you felt easy.
Considering that we were not overly familiar with the area, we felt completely informed regarding each listing and "neighborhood" that we explored. As a result, we have found exactly what we hoped we would find after setting out on this seemingly impossible transition.
Thank you again, Eric and Kelly McGregor
As you know, this is our 28th home we've recently moved into, and we can absolutely say that the help and assistance that you provided was by far the best we have ever received from a Realtor. You were present during every step of the process, from home selection to negotiations, to closing and it was greatly appreciated. Probably the one thing that impressed me most was your active participation during the walk through inspections. You spotted many more issues than we did, and the calm, professional manner in which you negotiated the issues with the builder, actually yielded us a far better package than we would have been able to pull together on our own. Thanks and again and keep up the great work! David, Marilyn and Kendra Meekings
I have been meaning to send you an e-mail for the last couple of months..We are finally settled here in Greenville. I would like to thank you for helping us find our new home. It was great working with you and you were able to help us find a home that met our needs in a short period of time. We are very happy in our new home and neighborhood. Kind Regards, Myrna D.
Vanessa and I consider our recent visit to Greenville to explore the possibility of relocating to that area very informative and productive. We attribute the success of our visit to the generous time you spent with us over the weekend showing us the properties and providing us with so much great information about the area. Further contributing to the success of our visit was your help in preparing us in advance of our arrival through your research of properties that met our house-shopping criteria. The information on the properties that you sent us by e-mail was consistent with the desires we identified to you. These listings with the photographs helped us better understand the properties available in our price range and thus helped us save time during our visit by concentrating on those listings of special interest to us. Your knowledge of the Greenville area was evident in your efficient showing of the various areas we visited to examine the properties as well as the insights you provided about the communities. We took a lot of notes. Your efficiency was further exemplified by your use of electronic information retrieval off the computer database that allowed you to provide quick answers to specific questions we had on the various properties. With your help, our recognizance trip to Greenville was a most positive experience and we are looking forward to working with you when we return. Boris and Vanessa Gan
Thanks for all your assistance. With your help and great web site, we were able to find our dream home the first day out. Thanks again and please keep in touch. Roger and Tara K.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your professional, yet friendly service in the purchase of my new home in Greenville! I am finally getting settled in...as well as my new puppy, Sam. I would and will recommend your realty services to anybody, firstly, because of your most accessible, updated, easy-to-use, and "nonrealtor threatening" website-which happened to be the primary reason I chose you as an out-of-state Greenville hopeful. Not only was I impressed with your website, but your prompt, yet friendly service in reply to my property and community inquires. Through your website, you offered the client the ability to browse the Greenville area MLS on his/her own time and speed without hassling I've experienced with other Realtors. Additionally, you always made yourself very available and accessible via phone, work or e-mail and really catered to my schedule (including looking at a high number of homes in just 2 days!) Furthermore, it is obvious you possess a wide array of knowledge in the community, values of properties, as well as the business of buying and selling homes that made me feel very secure in having you "on my side". Thank you again for everything. I would definitely work with you or recommend you to others in the future. Sincerely, Jennifer Campbell
You provided excellent service from the moment of our initial contact through closin which was about 4 months of elapsed time. Your web site was easy to use and your were very responsive to any questions. We appreciated the fact that you well completely prepared when we arrived for our actual house hunting trip. Thank you for spending 4 days with us during our house hunting trip and staying with us through the offer process and right through the closing. This is our 11th move and you certainly set the standard for service. Sincerely, Kenn and Pat Farrell
Thank you for all of your help in our home search. You were great to work with and the entire process went so smoothly it was easier than we imagined. We have loved living here so far and are looking forward to many more years here. We will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a great Realtor. Erin and David Busch
Thank you so much for your help with buying our new home. You were an excellent Realtor, we never had a problem reaching you and you were very flexible in meeting us at odd hours. We also appreciated how patient you were and not pushy and that you took as seriously even though we are young and first time home buyers. Your professionalism and knowledge of the area shows in everything you do. Sincerely, Daniel R.
My wife and I are recent clients of Eddy Kicker and I would like to take a moment to let you know what a great experience it was working with him. From our very first appointment with Eddy, my wife and I were extremely impressed. Being first time home buyers, we were very comforted by the fact that he took the time to thoroughly explain the home buying process. He also was very interested in both of our new careers and took the time to listen diligently to what mattered the most to us in a new home. He very clearly explained the difference between working with him as a customer versus a client, and made sure that both of us were very comfortable with what was going on. He patiently showed us any home that we requested and never pushed us to view homes that did not meet our initial expectations. Once we found the right home, things with the homebuilder/builder's agent got a little rocky, but Eddy helped us navigate the few problems that arose. Also, rarely did I ever have to leave him a voicemail. He always was very quick to answer his phone/email and I never had to worry about playing "voicemail tag" with him. To sum it up, we could not have dreamed of any better service from anyone--from our initial meeting all the way to closing.
The most impressive point throughout the entire process was that our home was an entry level home at an entry level price. Throughout our entire experience, Eddy gave us superb service (just as if we were buying a much more expensive home). We were extremely blessed to have worked with Mr. Kicker and will freely recommend him to friends in the future. Sincerely, Seth and Elizabeth Brown
I don't think we can say enough good things about having you as our Realtor. You went above and beyond for us in our real estate transaction, especially since we are in Massachusetts. We had to rely on you to help us with everything connected with the closing of our new home in Simpsonville. We all know how stressful buying a home can be but because of you, this was not the case. We will not hesitate to refer our friends to you as an agent "who REALLY works with you". You Are The Best. Keith and Diane Fallon
You were wonderful to work with. Buying a home with you was a pleasure, which is a new experience for us. Relocation can be so difficult but you made it so easy. Many Thanks, Peggy and Gary Liotta
