They walked me through the whole process as a first time seller and made it as easy as possible.
..it's not just about the deal, or the money.
Lee is amiable and sociable and crosses the line between friend and business council easily. Originally our intent was to prepare for the sale of our house in a year or two. He counseled us that the best time to enter the market was then and he was correct. During the sale of our home, we felt Lee was always honest and upfront with us regarding the sale and presentation of the house, what the market was after, and what would help make the house move. When an offer was presented, he helped us analyze the pro’s and con’s of the offer and provided negotiation tactics and strategies that were beneficial. In the end, we were satisfied with the results. Lee was also our realtor in helping us find our new home. Most of the homes we looked at were ones we found on line and requested viewings through Lee. He was usually very responsive in getting back to us and confirming times for viewing. During the viewings, his time was always ours. We always felt we were his top priority at those times. Be prepared to provide a grading on the viewing with reasons for the score! Lee consistently asks for that.
He's organized, very diligent in what he does, and serves his clients very well. The people that have worked with him love him!
I also appreciate his guidance.
Lee, Graclyn made the whole process of buying a house easy and we actually enjoyed it! They responded fast to our requests and made the communication with the seller easy. They kept us updated though the whole process and made us feel like we are in good hands. They are also great negotiators, very professional and fun to work with! I will definitely use their services again.
Both were straight with us and we felt they were truly honest. We would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.
He is very personal to the "seller's needs" and very well organized. We had a contract in 10 days......enough said!
We chose Lee to be our agent when he sold our neighbor's home in only six days (while the housing market was still in a slump). Two months later, he sold our home in only four days! Lee is very committed to his clients, making himself available weekends and holidays and answering calls and e-mails well outside of typical business hours. He made us feel like we were his only clients, but I'm sure his other clients felt the same way. He is an effective and creative negotiator: he worked tirelessly as both our seller's agent and buyer's agent to make deals happen quickly and resolve issues related to inspections, closings, etc. His recommendations on lenders, home stagers, movers, etc. were all excellent, and his effective use of technology (from iPad presentations and virtual tours to dedicated home websites and automated document signing) was extremely impressive and efficient. Most importantly, Lee is a man of character and integrity, and we are happy to call him a friend. He even loaned us his pickup truck during the move... that says a lot about his character.
Organized, technically enabled, and with one of the best marketing attacks around. We interviewed a couple other agents when we decided to list our home, and the presentation (and subsequent execution) by Lee just blew everyone else out of the water.
Lee was quick to respond to our request for showings or for information and gave valuable insight. He ran rent comparables for us to ensure our target rent numbers were competitive with other local properties. We couldn't imagine anyone could have provided a smoother process and we'll certainly use him again for any other properties we buy or sell. Lee and Graclyn get our highest recommendation!
From start to finish, Mr. Goldstein advised me on selecting a great home out of others I had been interested in buying, and he often kept in contact and assisted me along the way. He even suggested vendors (i.e. Moving; Homeowners insurance; Alarm system) from a list of companies he provided me that would offer reasonable rates. I successfully closed on my new home on 7/31/2012, and I am so grateful to have had Lee Goldstein as my mortgage broker! I totally recommend Lee Goldstein and Team to the next interested home buyer!!!
We were working to purchase a property while living out of state which was difficult. Lee and his team met us where we were with our circumstances and worked hard to understand our needs and our schedule. We found him and his team to be much more than the average we had come to expect. Their attention to detail, expertise in property, overall courtesy and follow up was extraordinary. I would highly recommend Lee and InTrust Realty. Five stars from a very grateful couple!
The confidence we had in Lee was well-deserved - he got us great deals on both transactions!
I assure you that he will have your best interests at all times. He is easy to connect and talk to and zeros in on how he can best help you sell your home! As I said he is simply the best!
After several years of retirement, travel and moves, we fell in love with North Raleigh and decided to settle. But having had some less than ideal experiences with sales, purchases and realtors in general, we needed the perfect Team. And we found it with Lee and Graclyn. More than anything else, Home sales and purchases require trust and partnership; a feeling that you're in this with people you can depend on. Throughout the process, Lee was there. First he found us the perfect house, with his perfect process. Than he resolved every issue. And then, whenever we needed anything . . . . broker, lawyer, mover, landscaper, locksmith . . . . he knew a guy that knew a guy. No matter what the issue, he was always cool, calm and collected. But when something needed to happen, he was absolutely unstoppable. In our lives, Mary and I have known many realtors. Lee and Graclyn are by far the best. And even better than that, they are now our friends.
He sold my home in 2 weeks. Priced it perfectly, and handled every need I had. Can't say enough about him. He is sincere, honest and protected me. High reco.
Lee was very patient in helping us through the 'getting ready to list' phase and provided excellent advice, including the services of Successful Staging. Our house was on the market for only 11 days before we had a contract on it. Thank you, Lee and Gracelyn! We are enjoying our little piece of paradise in Florida now!
They helped us sell our current home and buy our new one. We really felt like part of the family. They went above and beyond. You really can't go wrong with them.
He was quick to respond, helpful and patient during the entire process. His straight talk was reassuring and felt honest throughout the purchase. His contacts were A+; everyone he referred us to had the same level of professionalism and work ethic as he did. We would absolutely refer Lee to friends and family and would use him again.
We immediately felt comfortable with him and he never pressured us to make a decision that wasn't right for us. With his help and guidance we were able to get full asking price for the house we were selling and we got an amazing deal on the house we purchased. Lee was always quick with his responses to our (many) questions and he made sure we knew how everything was progressing and what to expect throughout the process. I would absolutely recommend Lee and Gracelyn if you're looking to buy or sell. They definitely made the whole experience less stressful.
Always there for his clients, knows the business, gets to know his clients so he can better understand their needs
Lee took the time to get to know my husband and I and found us EXACTLY what we were looking for. Lee and Graclyn were easy to get in touch with throughout the whole process. We could not be any more thankful for you both!
So happy to be in our new home and have all the details covered completely by InTrust Realty. I would highly recommend using Lee, Graclyn and their team. They are terrific!
. Very well established and known in Raleigh area... They made our house hunt quick, easy and stress free .. Many thanks again.. Great great folks.. Do not look any further..thank you again!!! Alex and Petra
Lee understands what is necessary to sell a home based on market conditions and provides the resources to get the job done right. Our home was under contract in six days! Olga handled the majority of our showings as we looked for a new home. Her availability went above and beyond to accommodate our needs as parents with young children. Graclyn's attention to detail and quick response time with scheduling and paperwork made us feel confident that all of the details we didn't understand were well taken care of. So glad we went with InTrust!
He guided me throughout the buying process and was a trusted business professional offering his (solicited) advice. He was not a yes man, but a trusted business adviser. He is also kind enough to offer advice on a sale of another house where is not realtor! His commitment to the customer is far beyond than any other realtor. Use Lee (and his team), your real estate transaction will be a piece of cake. Why are you still reading? Call him now...
I have had the pleasure of working with them multiple times and they have always gone above and beyond.
He was able to sell my home in less than 12 weeks. The homes in my neighborhood were averaging around 10-12 months on the market. I would definitely recommend Lee and would use him again in the future.
When we call Lee and give him an idea of what kind of a house and the price range we want he has several for us to look at in a heartbeat. Lee is very sincere in what he does, and shows how much he cares about each individual he works with. Because of Lee we have bought three homes from him in two years. Thank you Lee!
We had our house on the market for 18 months. re-listed with Lee and it sold in 8 days. but that wasnt the amazing part, he was there to answer any questin we had about the closings of our old house or the purchase of our new house and came by to check on us on moving "weekend". The professionalism, network, and attention to detail is something we havent found with any other realtor. Thanks Lee!
Did not hesitate to do what it takes to sell the house. Was amazingly helpful. Has a wide variety of contacts for any needs and they were all professional. I would recommend him to anyone performing a real estate transaction.
Both from a personal and professional point of view. Once we talked through the process and Lee gave us a few pointers, the process took over and everything went like clockwork! If you get a chance to work with Lee Goldstein you will not be disappointed!!!
Will use him again anytime.
