I cannot thank you enough for helping me with the sale of my property.   This was my first experience and you were so patient and kind and always answered my questions.I wasn’t sure about staging the house but after I saw the beautiful job you did making the house look like a warm and comfortable place to live, I was convinced you knew best. I trusted your advice from then on and it paid off.  You not only have a real talent for decorating but you were very knowledgeable about everything and when there were repair issues, painting that should be done, etc. you knew contractors I could call.  And you even checked the work for me.  I appreciated that you kept me informed about showings and any changes from the beginning until the closing.  You were always professional and I could tell you love what you are doing.  I think you are the best and I am delighted I chose you as my realtor.  I highly recommend you and Berkshire Hathaway to anyone.

Mr. Forsman:

I am taking the opportunity to provide you with feedback on your agent, Betty Cheek, who has been working with us since our initial search for a home in the Toccoa, Georgia area began almost a year ago.

The search was not a year long, rather just a couple of months. In that time, we made a couple of visits to the area and spent several days with Betty viewing available properties and communities in the area. We were fixed on waterfront property and Betty obviously has a great deal of experience with such homes.

Betty's professionalism, friendly attitude and extremely helpful nature were and continue to be a tremendous resource to us. i want to emphasize "continues", because she is still always available to us. We have bought and sold over 10 properties during our marriage and must unequivocally say, Betty is the best agent we have ever dealt with. Your company should be proud and grateful that she is one of your finest assets.

This purchase was unique for us as Betty was also the seller's representative on the transaction. She carefully explained all the requirements and ramifications of the situation to us prior to us visiting and considering the home we purchased. Betty maintained the highest level of professionalism throughout the transaction from our perspective and we believe the seller would say the same. It was a 'tight wire" she had to walk, but she handled every step with clarity, poise, balance and a professional demeanor that I am not sure many people can exhibit.

There were negotiations between us and the seller. There were inspection points that had to be negotiated and resolved. Betty has many extremely capable resources for doing inspections, completing checklist items and handling legal and administrative issues, which was very, very helpful to both the seller and us. Those individuals/companies really like her and reacted immediately to assist in any way. This clearly expedited the closing process

Her contacts with the Corps of Engineers, insurance providers, attorneysj etc. were all instrumentai in insuring this transaction was completed in a rapid and easy manner. In addition, her personal understanding of the hurdles we had to get over in getting our financing in place was invaluable- We were the first customer of Key Bank's mortgage business in Georgia and the bank's learning curve created several obstacles, including the issue of flood insurance. With Bety's assistance, we were able to get all these issues resolved. Key Bank should actually be thanking Betty, as well.

The most impressive part of Betty's service/involvement has been the fact that her assistance never stops. She is always available to help us find someone to do repairs and improvements, negotiate the "red tape" of the local governments, and find sources for personal items. She has made the transition to new home and community, so much easier than we ever deemed possible.

There is no question, that we were extremely fortunate to find Betty to assist and represent us in the search for a new home. I am certain the sellers are very happy as their sale was pretty quick for a house in this price range. They were lucky that Betty has customers who are capable and anxious to buy and sell in this price range.

We would be thrilled to have Betty represent us if we ever decide to sell this home.

Betty represents the epitome of "customer service and satisfaction". This has been a valued trait for a long time in business worldwide, but it is a characteristic that is not always easy to find. We are so thankful for her assistance!

Please reach out to Betty and acknowledge that we recognized her for her outstanding performance for and dedication to us in our purchase process. We have a very high degree of confidence in your organization, because of her.

Thank you very much!"

"Highly recommend Betty for your buying or selling real estate needs. She is extremely knowledgeable and makes sure every step of the process is done correctly and with ease. Betty was actually the real estate agent for the sellers of the home we purchased, but we had such a high level of confidence in her that we maintained her as our agent as well; knowing that her priority was to the sellers. However, with the way we were treated and the ease of our purchase, we never knew any difference. Betty's clients are not just a sell or purchase, they become an extended family in which she invests in. We have since recommended Betty several times and will not hesitate to use her again."

"In September of 2018 we listed our farm with Betty Cheek through Berkshire Hathaway.  We were previously listed with another agency that provided a handful of showings and a failed contract.  After speaking with Betty, we knew our listing experience with her would be different.

The day after we made initial contact with Betty she scheduled a walk through of our home and property, had all the necessary paperwork drafted and scheduled a photographer.  The level of professionalism and service we received from Betty was unmatched.  She promptly returned phone calls and emails within the day.  She answered all of our questions thoughtfully and honestly.

Betty held open houses and provided extensive marketing to ensure our property was advertised nationwide.  As a result, our property was under contract within six months and subsequently closed.

Not only did Betty sell our unique property, she went above and beyond to help us find a new home.  She showed us numerous houses and provided sound advice every step of the way.

We would highly recommend Betty to anyone selling or purchasing a home.  Working with Betty was by far the best real estate experience we have ever had.

"Betty is the reason we were able to sell our house after having no luck with other agents. Willing to pitch in and help make our home look the best it could for prospective buyers. Even got her son to bring his drone for the best photos possible. I can not imagine finding another agent that would be more helpful in the stressful process of negotiating and closing the deal. Best agent ever!!"
