Top notch! We couldn't be happier!

Novella has excellent knowledge of the local market. She geared the search for our home to the specific needs of our family. She showed us all the options that were available so we could make an informed decision that benefit our needs/wants. When we decided to build instead of buying a previously owned home she was there to navigate us through these uncharted waters. If we were ever to buy another home, Novella would definitely be our realtor.

Second hone with her...there is a reason we use Novella!

Novella is very knowledgeable with the greater Columbia, SC area and could spot issues with homes we visited. She was accommodating to our needs and patient as we viewed numerous homes for over a month. I would highly recommend her and look forward to working with her again when we have a need to buy or sell a property in the Columbia area.

After flying out to view house prior to moving we bought our house based off pictures and Novellas description. Novella relayed that our house would need no work. When we arrived there was no grass in the back yard, a building covered in black mold that wasn't on the survey or in any of the pictures, and every wooden cabinet was damaged by what seem to be knife engravings. Response time was poor and after moving into our home we found out that new homes were being built in our neighborhood for the same price per square foot, but the new homes had upgrades like granite and hardwood. Before buying the house, we made one trip to SC to view homes. She took me to two dumps. Very disappointed.

Dan, the two dumps I showed you were homes you sent to me. Not the other way around. Once you arrived in South Carolina and didn't like the home we didn't need to close, but you never said anything. I am disappointed you couldn't communicate to me that you were unhappy with the house. These were homes you requested to see. You came out one time without your wife and picked the house that had mold in it, I told your wife it was not a good idea to purchase this home. And, you agreed. So, we began looking for other bargains.

A realtor that knows the market and was genuinely invested in our home buying process. She provided advice when needed and followed our wishes to the letter. Her descriptive imagery helped us to quickly decide on the area and home that would mostly suit our wishes. We were very comfortable in her actions which originated from her knowledge and organization. The tenacity in her approach to assist in resolving our issues resulted in the best results possible for us.

It has been two years since we bought our house with Novellas aid. She worked so hard to help us find the right house. We are happy and remember the whole house buying experience fondly thanks to her!

She is funny, identifies with her clients, and keeps trying to find that perfect house the clients needs.
