WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT EUGENE REALTOR GARY RAZE
I've been around for a while and here's what they say about how I help them buy and sell real estate in Lane County, Oregon. Let me help you find your dream home!
Gary helped my husband & I to purchase two homes and he was very professional and honest. He was easy to get in touch with and was always prompt to return calls and answer our questions. He was also able to show us homes with very short notice, which is an important thing in this fast real estate market. .
Gary Raze is amazing. He has great people skills, asked questions to find out what I was looking for and when we were in a home he would point out important issues regarding the home. I trust Gary and would never use a different agent in a home purchase or in selling a home. Gary is the best! Gary is a no B.S. kind of guy and looks out for your interests. He is clear in communication all issues and processes. You can tell he cares about his clients and treats them extremely well. I will suggest Gary to anyone buying or selling a home.
Gary knew us, has kept in touch with us and was truly prepared with all the information we needed to make the right decision. Gary Raze is such a professional. I have dealt with approx. 15 agents over the years. I am recommending him to all my neighbors. They're good people and I want them to have the positive experience we had.
Knowledge of the area and the ability to identify what was of importance to me. Successfully and patiently guided me to choose the right home and location. Encouraged me through the ups and downs of and emotional search. Gary cares about not just the sale, but about making sure you are pleased with your choice. He is patient and supportive. He will listen to you and offer suggestions. And he will work for you, even after the sale.
As a successful RE/MAX agent, Gary's skills are wanted by other top Real Estate Agencies. He demonstrated to me why other Agency's are after him in multiple ways during the transaction. Re/Law, local vendors/trade people who can eliminate troublesome false Home Inspector crap, slick wordings on adendums. He's on the ball and very easier to recommend to my friends when they want a pro to sell or buy a home. He's comfortable to deal with. I am using him again. I am telling him I want him to have a second commission from a new transaction, he is now my buyers agent.
Gary made the whole process easy and fun! He is a natural educator and mentor and takes pride and enjoyment in his work which helped my partner and I feel very well-looked after and informed through this whole process. He was always readily available and quick to respond to any questions or concerns. He ensured we would get a good quality home without any covert or overt red flags and was very realistic with what was good or bad about the homes we looked at. He is easy-going, at your own pace, not pushy or rushed, down-to-earth and realistic, feels like a solid friend or family member helping you out.
I'd recommend Gary without reservation. Appreciated the experience, sense of humor, looked for the little things I wouldn't have noticed and guided me past the worries re: hot market - helped me set reasonable expectations for search. He is experienced, responsive and easy to work with - I felt that i was great hands. Gary let me 'be me'even if he humored me a little. Turns out he was the buyers agent for my new next door neighbors. Their description, 'so easy to work with - really flexible'- I agree!
Gary I'm always happy to review your clients survey. You are just a wonderful broker and it shows. Thanks for being part of RMI. Gary is very knowledgeable about real estate and the market and makes us feel very comfortable navigating through a complicated process. Gary was great, honest, thorough, and explains things in a way that make sense even when your not at all familiar with the process.
