Retta is AMAZING!!!
I did a lot of research on realtors in the Sumter area before choosing Retta and I am so glad I did. She is absolutely the best. Look no further, she is the one you want!! Retta is incredibly knowledgeable about the local area. We used her to buy our home. Based on our preferences, she worked tirelessly to find us exactly what we were looking for. We were new to Sumter so she helped to guide us through the neighborhoods and taught us about the local area. She found us the perfect home! Once we found it, she guided us through the buying process and made sure we were fully satisfied. I will definitely choose Retta again when it comes time for us to sell and would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for an EXCELLENT REALTOR!!
I fully recommend using Retta if you are searching for a home.
Retta and I met because of a PCS move to South Carolina. She already had a large list of homes to show my wife and I based on our interests and before we knew it she has driven us around town to show us nearly a dozen homes. She was more than helpful and knowledgeable about Sumter County and gave my wife and I great ideas of things to do and places to go. Retta placed my wife and I into a home that is perfect for the two of us with our dog and we have not been happier. After we purchased our home, Retta continued to help and support my wife and I to make sure our move in was successful and to ensure that the house was within our satisfaction (only had to fix the fireplace, not Retta’s fault, builder issue). My wife called Retta with this problem and Retta continued to work with/for us to ensure our problems were fixed. Due to military service I know I will eventually leave Sumter and when I do I will be in touch with Retta to ensure my home is taken care of appropriately. I fully recommend using Retta if you are searching for a home.
I promise, Retta won’t let you down!!!!!
I absolutely admired Retta!! She stayed on top of things the entire time, I knew that I could trust her advice, she was so thorough with everything. I felt like I was her only priority and that she put her all in helping me. One evening she stayed hours after closing time, making sure that things got done fast as possible. Retta was very honest with all my concerns, I knew right away that she was looking out for my best interest. I did not find one thing negative about her. Retta impressed me a few times with her negotiation skills. Retta always responded quickly to my calls. If you’re like me, very skeptical, and need someone that will work smart and fast, please call her. I promise, she won’t let you down!!!!!
