Client Testimonials

"Working with Holly was a most rewarding experience. After emailing her over Labor Day weekend, she promptly got down to work. After picking up the keys held by the vacation rental company, Holly visited the next day and immediately organized a local vendor on my behalf for some remedial work. She promptly emailed me her analysis of “comps” in the area and I confidently signed to list with her at our first meeting. Holly guided me through all the certifications required to list the property. She also uses the photographic services of Brad South, the most proficient photographer for this kind of work I have ever seen. My listing posted Friday afternoon. Four parties viewed on Saturday, 4 viewed on Sunday and several more the following week. By the end of day that first Monday though, I had received sound offers from many who viewed in the initial 48hrs. I was extremely impressed by Holly’s negotiating prowess with the buyers' Realtor. She recognized the key points which were presented after inspection and possesses a discerning eye for those items deemed as essential to address versus general aspects found when owning beach property. Holly even took care of returning a Uverse modem to AT&T on my behalf. She also checked on my property again shortly before closing, made one last look over and emailed me her comments. Without doubt, Holly is the most proactive and service-oriented Realtor I ever met, with a strong drive to meet clients’ expectations and needs. She took my property from listing to closure in just 38 days. Whilst I naturally hope this review benefits Holly, ultimately it will be her future clients who will benefit the most from the relationship they develop with her. I firmly believe they, like I, will then also wish to share their own experiences with Holly and provide their own endorsements that will give readers the full and complete confidence in her they need. I can personally assure them, they will be in very safe hands indeed with Holly."

"As semi-retired Houston Real Estate Broker (25 active years), it was a difficult decision to select a Listing Agent for our Bay home at Laffites Cove in Galveston. We interviewed several companies and agents and decided on Holly Wade with Barefoot Properties. It was her genuine enthusiasm for our home, her strong work ethic (willing to hold the house open practically every weekend) and her desire to get the house sold within our specified time frame that helped to cement that decision. Working with Holly was always a joy--she answered every possible question or found the answer for us. She kept her reports on who had seen the house and the open house interests. Also, her company, Barefoot Properties, was well-informed about the listing and privy to most information regarding the house so that they were indeed involved in pursuit of a buyer. This was very comforting and not what we had experienced with the former company we listed with--it was as if they didn't know who we were or anything about the house. Holly presented all offers with enthusiasm and dilligence. Eventually we ended up agreeing on an offer and after much haggling we were able to close within the specified time thanks to Holly's help. Please consider this letter as a positive endorsement for Holly Wade--she will get the job done! Sincerely, Deanne Thrash White Independent Real Estate Broker Texas License #0239652"
