My husband and I met with Michael in mid-December, our house went on the market January 16th and was under contract January 19th. Michael and his team are amazing at what they do and did everything could to help us. We were out of our old house and in to the new one within a month of our house going under contract. I would highly recommend using the J. Michael Manley team for buying and/or selling. They made the hassle or buying and selling so easy and everything was very smooth.
We began working with Donald in early July, 2016. Today, on 10/24/16 we closed on our home in Greer. Donald kept us current on market trends here, even though we were living in Florida during most of the property search. Donald was never too busy to return our calls or emails and he met us several times at the home we were buying in order for us to get estimates for future work to be done. He guided us through the entire process with his calm, focused demeanor. He has been a pleasure to work …
The J Michael Manley team went above and beyond during our home buying process. Everyone that played a role in this very scary time as first homebuyers were such a joy and pleasure to work with. But ultimately, we really couldn’t have done it without the help of our realtor, Donald Barbour. You can tell he absolutely loves what he does and especially the Upstate area. From the first visit at his office, he exudes such a wealth of knowledge regarding this area, comps, etc and is willing to go abo…
I have been wanting to purchase a home now for quite some time but didn’t think I was ready. After being called as a reference for a friend joining the JMM Team, she asked if I knew anyone looking to buy. I mentioned that I might be. I was able to set up an appointment with an old friend, Erika. Erika was amazing!! She even met us to show us a home at 7 pm on a Sunday evening (her day off) but wanted to make sure we were able to place an offer on this house if we wanted since there were alr…
I would highly recommend the J. Michael Manley team for any and all real estate referrals in the Greenville area. As a fellow agent referring very close friends of mine, I wanted to make sure they’d be taken care of well, and J. Michael Manley assured me they would receive his team’s very best service. He did not disappoint. My friends were delighted when they found the home of their dreams, which was new construction, and J. Michael Manley was able to negotiate the price down plus add in so…
Working with Erika Bennett and her team was the best decision we made. The buying and selling process isn’t easy, but they made it as simple and efficient as they could. They assured us along the way and were very quick to answer questions and give advice. Erika’s advice on selling our home was spot on. Our house sold almost instantly and had multiple offers from which to choose. There are so many choices in realtors which is overwhelming, but this team has it down to a science with an equat…
