As a first time seller, I was unsure of what to expect and, honestly, quite anxious about the process of selling my home. From our first meeting, I knew I was in capable hands as Carolyn very clearly explained everything that needed to be done and how the process would work. With her advice, I ended up listing my property for $20k more than I had originally planned and it sold for asking price. Even better, we were under contract within 2 days of listing and her excellent negotiating made it as simple and stress-free as possible for me. It could not have been a better experience and I know without a doubt that it was thanks to Carolyn. I highly recommend her if you're planning to buy or sell. Kelsey H, Canton GA
Carolyn has helped me sold 3 houses since 2011. All the 3 houses sold within a month. She responds email and phone call without delay. She came to look at the house before listing and gave me some good suggestions. I still have one home listed with Carolyn West. Mark K, Loganville GA
Started getting calls this afternoon! Thank you for all your assistance. You are invaluable. Thanks.
Bruce B. Brookhaven, GA
I can't thank you enough for being so prompt. I've heard horror stories about other flat flee listing companies, and my husband and I debated on whether it was worth the hassle. I read a review about Total Choice Realty on a private Facebook group, did a little more research and decided to try you out. So far, you're making this a great experience. THANK YOU! If this continues to go great...I'll be sure to post lots of positive reviews about this experience. Lynn G., Marietta GA
We were thoroughly satisfied with Carolyn and Total Choice Realty. I found her website when looking to list my home for sale by owner. I loved how I could choose which services I needed and the convenience of having everything I needed at my fingertips. I didn't want to have to figure out where to get the MLS and FMLS forms and disclosures and appreciated that she provides those. I was also interested in professional photography as my home is an inside townhome with no windows on the sides and I wanted my home to show light and bright. The photos were excellent. I had a contract with multiple offers in 3 weeks! We also used Carolyn for closing and negotiations as we were so busy planning a move we just didn't have the time! We will use Total Choice Realty the next time we have a home to sell. Tracey L., Roswell, GA
Carolyn does a fantastic job and was always available for any questions I had.
Working with Carolyn has been a great experience and the sale of my home went
very smoothly. If you have a property to sell I would highly recommend Carolyn
and her services. Robert, Kennesaw, GA
Carolyn, I am impressed with all the good tools you have and the knowledge you have in your profession. I will be making baklava for the holidays and And I will make a plate for you. Thank you for your professional service -. Mark R. Duluth GA
Thanks Carolyn for all your help through the process!!! You are wonderful and I have given several people your card. You have been the one bright spot in this stressful process. Lisa P. Garden Hills, Atlanta, GA
I just wanted to say thanks for the excellent job helping us sell our home. Total Choice Realty was the correct choice listing our property. I want to thank you for being so consistent with your help. I was impressed with the immediate return of my e-mails , phone calls and text messages. Your were always there to answers the many questions I had.
Thanks again and God Bless. Doug M. E. Woodstock, GA
We are happy to give you a GREAT reference. We are thrilled with the help and hints you gave us ... even though we mostly knew what we are doing. And you are always so responsive. MUCH better than other realtors! We ARE telling our friends! Denise and Steve - Dunwoody, GA
Thanks for your time on the phone! Your website is detailed and informative, but speaking with you was very reassuring and gave me confidence in your company! I will review the e-book and get back to you as soon as possible. Thanks - Robert and Kathy R, Peachtree City, GA
Thank you so much for your help!
Right from the beginning I knew we had made a good choice to go with you to list our property. We had tried for over a year to list with a full service agency and saw little results. The minute we listed with you we got valuable ideas on marketing, setting the proper price and good tools to prepare sales brochures.
What we found especially rewarding was your availability when we needed advice with counters and review of offers and amendments. Even when you were out of town, we were able to reach you and respond to our buyers and get a great price. Use us a references anytime. Thank you - Sharon and Todd B., Decatur, GA
Hi Carolyn -
Hi Carolyn -
Congratulation! You made the top ten in unit sales on our last printout... it shows the top agents during the last four quarters (QTR 2 07 to Q1 08) you were #10. Despite a slowed market you are still producing and making clients happy. Well done - Jose Anziano, Managing Broker Re/Max
Thanks Carolyn - I always like to provide feedback and especially when it is good. Dealing with you all and your team has been a very good experience. Even though our home did not sell and we have decided to take it off of the market for now, the communication to and from you and your team has been great. Your follow up and feedback you all provided is very much appreciated. We have another house in Smyrna that we are going to list later this year and we will be giving you all a call or email to list it at the right time. Thanks again to you and your team! Wes & Shelly Tiner, Marietta, GA
Hey, I’ve been quite impressed thus far with your website, the options you provide us sellers, the ability to edit online, the auto generated flyers, and of course the customer service. Well done. Keep up the good work. Lou S., Marietta, GA
You have been such a pleasure to deal with. I constantly refer you to anyone who is interested in homes sales. I have been so happy with your services! Our home had been for sale for 3 months, when we placed it with your company, it was under contract within 45 days with multiple showings. Thanks again for such a great experience. Carrie D., Roswell, GA
I wanted you to know how much we appreciate your service. We always felt like you were there with us, guiding us as we dealt with contract language, etc. Thx for everything. We will definitely recommend you to others! Debora W. - Marietta, GA
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to let you know that everything looks great for my listing. I saw it up on Realtor.com and I've been getting a few calls already. Thanks for offering such an affordable MLS service! Brian G., Gainesville, GA
Thank you for saving us money and making our home selling experience so much more enjoyable. We had an offer 3 days after we put our home on the market and a contract 4 days later. While saving over $10,500 in commissions we had a experience "marketing" our house that was as stress free as possible.
Carolyn and Staff -
I would like to thank you for being so helpful throughout the process of the sale of my home. Previously, I had listed my home with a so called “Buy Owner” and had very few leads. After listing my home with Total Choice Realty, my home was shown weekly and we had an offer in 2 months. Carolyn and Lorene were always helpful and professional throughout the process. They offer the best value and service to sell your home, period!!! Highly recommended!!! T.Collins, Fayetteville, GA
"I originally heard about flat fee listing agents through a friend of mine who's a real estate agent herself. She suggested that this might be a good option for me, as I had very little equity in my property. Carolyn and the entire staff at Total Choice were a pleasure to work with and guided me through the entire process from start to finish. They were always courteous, helpful and professional, and delivered on everything they promised. They were also incredibly responsive to any questions or needs that I had. I recommend them enthusiastically to anyone planning to sell a home." Doug H. Atlanta, GA
"I am so glad I found Total Choice Realty. They made the whole selling process go very smoothly and Carolyn was always very helpful with her advice and suggestions. I listed my home on May 26, 2005 and had 5 buyers walk through within a few days. My house went under contract less then one week later. I saved over $7000 in Listing agent's commission.
The website is very user friendly and the free Flyer Creator is a great added feature. Customer service is top notch and selling couldn't have been easier. I highly recommend Total Choice Realty to any one who is planning on selling their home. Thanks Total Choice Realty!!! Diana N. - Lawrenceville, GA
I am writing this letter to let you know what a pleasant experience our dealings with Total Choice Realty's Flat Fee MLS Listing Service have been. I called on several multiple local companies offering similar services in the Atlanta area, but was frustrated with some of the vague responses about their practices. Fortunately, I was able to speak with you in detail and are thankful for your time and patience to answer all my question. Setting up my listing on your website was a snap including the uploading of the pictures of my house. Your staff was very diligent in representing our property on MLS/FMLS and I found the free Flyer Creator most helpful and effective. We had six or seven appointments set up within 72 hours of our listing going live and received an offer from a qualified buyer that same weekend. The transaction closed on June 2nd, 2005 and we saved over 6,000 in commission with the help of your company. I have already recommended your services to friends and associates and will look for your help again on my next home for sale. Michael V. Alpharetta, GA
“I am extraordinarily pleased with the results using Total Choice Realty’s Flat Fee MLS listing plan. An agent brought us a “dream” buyer in a little over 60 days. They brought a pre-qualification letter, and their loan sailed through. The buyer’s agent did most of the work on the contract, inspection, and setting up the closing, but the Total Choice staff started me off with a great information packet and suggestions, and was always there for me to quickly answer questions and reassure me. I calculate my savings at over $8600, which will go a long way toward remodeling the kitchen in our new house. Great thanks for your great service!” Michael H. - Mableton, GA
I appreciated your help this morning on the phone – after spending 10+ hours on the internet and talking with agents/brokers – you were by far the best option in my opinion. I appreciated your friendly and professional demeanor and I look forward to getting the forms from you and selling our house with your comprehensive flat-fee program. Thank you for all your help! James G. – Duluth
We saved $12,800 in real estate commission using your 'By Owner MLS Program'
It was like winning the Lottery - Todd and Carla E. Atlanta
We had tried to sell our home FSBO and after the initial flutter of interest, I was looking at spending far too much on newspaper ads and web site listings to try and get the message out to potential buyers. When I received a mailer from Total Choice for the Flat Fee MLS Service giving me the TOTAL CHOICE of selling By Owner or selling through a Buyer's Agent, I called them.
Everyone was very helpful and they truly know their business. I saved $7,350 in real estate commission and sold my home 47 days after listing our home on the MLS. My home was for Sale By Owner alone for 58 days with about 1/3 of the activity I had after listing on the MLS. The MLS ad made all the difference. Thanks So Much! - Ren and Scott T.-Sharpsburg, GA
Carolyn West & the Total Choice Realty Team did a great job assisting us with the sale of our house. We found that it was very easy to sell our house on our own. If we needed help, Carolyn & her team were always available for questions. Prior to listing our home with Total Choice Realty we had it on the market as a For Sale by Owner for about 30 days. We received next to no traffic when we had it listed as a For Sale by Owner. As soon as the home was MLS listed through Total Choice Realty, traffic increased significantly and we received a very solid offer on the home in less than 60 days. The best part about the offer was that our buyer was not working with a buyer's agent so we sold our home for ($399 flat fee MLS listing fee plus 1/2% at closing). If we had listed our home with a traditional real estate agent we would have paid $24,180 in real estate commission (assuming a 6% total commission). Carolyn West & Total Choice Realty saved us $23,297 !!! Our home sold for 95% of our original listing price so we did not take a big hit on our asking price either. We were so happy about the results that we received working with Total Choice Realty we would be willing to speak with anyone about our experience.
Thanks again Total Choice Realty. Scott & Stephanie L. - Canton, GA
Hi Carolyn, I wanted to let you know that I appreciate all your hard work in getting our house listed on MLS today, with such short notice. I can tell we have made the right decision by choosing your company! Tara and Brian B. Kennesaw, GA
