Tia Stanley is definitely 5 star! We were selling our home from a distance, so we needed a realtor that would not only market our property but also assist us with contract negotiations as well as suggesting and coordinating local companies to handle any repairs requested by the buyer. Tia did it all! From suggesting pre-sale upgrades to better position our property in a competitive market through the closing process, Tia was extremely professional and attentive to our questions and concerns. If you're looking for a realtor in the Williamsburg/Yorktown area, we highly recommend you give Tia Stanley a call! - Marilyn & Mike Haumer, Yorktown VA
5 star Looking for a realtor who will absolutely go above and beyond. Search no more! Tia has been amazing! I only gave her five stars because I can't give her ten!! - Tara Scott, Williamsburg VA
We live in California, and our son and his family live in Williamsburg. My daughter-in-law, Maile found Tia online or in the phonebook. WOW, what a GODSEND she is. Integrity, helpful, cheerful, hard working. She scheduled the walk thru and everything. All I had to do is sign papers in California and send back. Tia is a go getter. And a perfectionist. I will definitely buy another property from her. I strongly recommend her for all your real estate needs. - Bill and Sharon Richardson
"Tia Stanley is a professional with integrity. Her ethical standards assure her clients that she can be trusted with one of the biggest investments one can make. We found her through the Remax directory when we spotted a home we really liked. She did everything in her power to help us buy this home, and helped us very step of the way. Her personable nature made us feel like we had a caring family member by our side while going through the home-buying process. I would never go through this process without her. She is the best there is!" – Donna Kendall, Williamsburg VA
"From the time we met Tia Stanley, we knew we'd found the right person to help acquire our dream home. She always placed us first - taking every step efficiently and carefully. She always kept us informed of any new developments. Her knowledge of Real Estate rules and reg's was quite impressive. IF you have Tia in your corner, for whatever your dream, consider yourself lucky." – James Kendall, Williamsburg, VA
"I can not even begin to express how much we LOVED working with Tia. Before working with her we were with another agent for three months without finding "our house". In less than a month Tia had found our dream house. She really cares about finding what you want and gives you honest input about the market and expectations. There were times when I would call her at night and she would turn around and have a document ready for me that same night - she goes above and beyond! Amazing does not even begin to describe Tia!" –The Harris Family, Williamsburg, VA
"I worked with Tia on the purchase of my first home. Tia guided me through the entire process from loan prequalification to searching for houses to making the offer and closing the deal. Tia is very personable and knows the market well. I would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home." - Robert Sharpe, Foley AL
"Tia helped us find THE perfect home. As first time home buyers, we were completely clueless about the buying process. She walked us through it all and never put any pressure on us to make a decision. Not only did she make us feel comfortable about our budget, but she also spent countless hours searching for homes we could afford. We have owned our home for almost a year now, and we are completely satisfied. Tia is awesome! We highly recommend her :)" - Randa & Andrew Stuart, Silverhill AL
"We can't sufficiently express our gratitude for the excellent way you have represented us as the buyer of our new home in Spanish Fort and most recently on the quick, full-price sale of our home in Mobile. You know how to be patient for the buyer and motivated for the seller. We feel so fortunate to have had your assistance on both ends of the spectrum.
We were first impressed with your integrity, motivation and most of all, the interest you showed us when we were looking for a house in Spanish Fort. Ironically, it was one of the houses you researched and found for us, that we were able to make a same day offer that was accepted. If we had not moved quickly on this property, we would have missed out. Thanks to you, we have a wonderful home in Spanish Fort that we absolutely love.
Then, when it was time for us to think about selling our house in Mobile, we were torn as we had always thought we would have to sell by owner to get the money we needed out of it. However, we still had Tia on our minds and we remembered the motivation, concern and professionalism that you had demonstrated during the purchase of our home in Spanish Fort. We felt like you might have the same talent on the seller?s end too. That was an understatement. You really know how to shine!! We have never seen more effort and motivation given to advertising a property. As an added bonus, the constant communication and feedback was absolutely wonderful! Then, of course, there was that big yellow sign in the front yard. No house in midtown Mobile had a sign like that!
We have had some experience with real estate agents on the sale of my parent?s property and had even listed our house in midtown before. We discovered that many agents seem real eager when they are trying to get you to sign a contract with them, but then they put up their yard sign and that is the last time you hear from them. As for the previous listing of our house, it was on the market two years ago for about 10 months and there were NO OFFERS! We had to call the agent to find out what was going on.
Tia, we are amazed, that in less than 60 days, you had provided two open houses, advertised in the newspaper, magazines, the web and all kinds of ways. Not only that, but you had three offers on the table in one day!! We don?t know anyone else like you! Our neighbors even liked you! We never had to call you with a question; you didn?t give us a chance! You called us with answers before we could ask questions! We wish we could let everyone know what a wonderful agent you have been for us.
Now, we have just returned from closing and we couldn?t be happier! We came home with a check in our hands written for the amount we hoped to get if we had sold by owner! Yet, we had one of the most dedicated, professional, caring and motivated real estate agents we have ever seen. We never could have done this so quickly and efficiently ourselves. If you should ever need a personal reference, give us a call. We have been blessed to have your assistance as both buyers and sellers and are so grateful for everything!" - Zenas & Chris Harding, Spanish Fort & Mobile, AL
"Tia helped us find a wonderful house. We enjoyed working with her and she made the whole process easy." - Marcie & Evan Stanley, Fairhope, AL
"Tia helped us find our home in Feb 2010. The service she provided was amazing. She went above and beyond anything we ever expected from a realtor! We actually enjoyed the house hunting experience! She was very knowledgeable, helpful, patient and understanding! She was always on top of things and answered all questions we had. If she did not know the answer, she found it and did so in a timely manner. If we ever need to hire a realtor again it will definitely be Tia. We highly recommend her to anyone needing to buy or sell a home!"
- Jeff & Donna Vrieze, Robertsdale, AL
"Tia is an outstanding professional agent. She gives more than 100% to help her clients. If you are buying or selling, I highly recommend her." - Rebecca Sebring, Fairhope, AL
"Tia is a great, great hard working agent. Sold our home in just over a month thanks to her. She is the best agent we have ever worked with!" - Mike & Glynis Watts, Fairhope AL
"Tia Stanley is one of the most professional agents who I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. She went far beyond what a typical agent would have gone in an effort to sell my house for me. Living out of state, I was able to depend on her for the resolution of many issues that occurred during the listing period and before the actual sale of my home. She has a positive attitude and a pleasant personality and I highly recommend her!" - Marcie Roby, Loxley AL
"Tia helped us in many ways with the sale of my Mother's home. As an out-of-town seller we had to depend on Tia to help us with many issues that occurred during a very difficult housing market. She had excellent marketing skills and gave it her all to get the house sold!"
- Janice Patterson, Fairhope AL
"They were very pleasant and accommodating to work with. The online tour of my home was the best I had ever seen. I loved working with them and if the need ever arises I would work with them again."
- B. Wise, Point Clear AL
"Tia did a fantastic job photographing my parents' house and keeping us all updated through the process."
- Brigid Amos, Fairhope AL
"On behalf of Joy and myself I want to thank you (Kathy) and Tia for all your efforts during the sale of our home in Daphne. It was from your efforts the sale of the home was stress free, for the most part. Thank you for the gift cards to Longhorns and Olive Gardens. We wish you all the best." - Glenn and Joy, Daphne AL
"Tia was a pleasure to work with, and her team sold our house during a very difficult time in the market." - Jason & Jennifer Colee, Spanish Fort AL
"Tia, I can't tell you how impressed I am with the listing for my home!! You have been the most professional realtor I have ever worked with in 38 years of home ownership. I have owned quite a few homes. Probably about 13. I have worked with realtors on about 8 rental homes as well.
The slide show is wonderful and, I'm sure, very impressive to potential buyers. It is obvious you have put a lot of time and effort into this listing. As I mentioned during our conversations, I spent several hours viewing individual agents' sites and found yours the most professional site I found. Then, after speaking to you on the phone, I just knew you were MY realtor.
I really look forward to working with you, Tia. I am totally comfortable in believing if anyone can get the job done, you can!" - Kathy Brown, Stapleton, AL
"Dear Tia, I am pretty much settled in here at my new home and finally found time to send you a sincere "Thank You!!!" You were so professional from our first contact that I knew you were the person who could get my home sold in this tough market. Your professionalism and diligent work ethic took all the concerns off of me and I really appreciate that. The difficult issues we ran into the last couple of weeks prior to closing would have given me a nervous breakdown if you had not been so knowledgeable and diligent in taking care of all the paperwork and procedures that needed handling. More than anything, it made me realize why a commission is a very small price to pay to have a competent agent handle selling my home. I would have been at a complete loss at taking care of all the unexpected issues that arose.
I have sold or purchased homes through realtors in several states at least 16 times and I, honestly, have never felt so confident in one as I was in you. In addition to your phone contact with me, I was always able to check my email and find updates on the ads and activities on my listing several times each week. Beyond the excellent service, I feel I also found a real friend. Your sincerity and outgoing personality are a big part of what makes you an excellent agent.
I hope to keep in touch and perhaps see you some times when I am visiting on the eastern shore. If I can ever be of help as a reference, please do not hesitate to ask. Sincerely," - Kathy Brown, Stapleton AL
"Tia, It is easy to see why you have such a great reputation for selling homes. You really go at it with gusto! If anyone can sell our home in today?s market, it is you. I would highly recommend you to anyone trying to sell their home, and I will. Have a great day." - Rachel Stafford, Daphne/Timbercreek AL
"Hi Tia, You did a great job. You had the best marketing plan and exposure I have ever seen.
Great job! I am sure that we will work together in the future. Have a great holiday season! Thanks." - Kelly Gimson, Spanish Fort, AL | Weichert Relocation Specialist
"WE LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!"
- Jaclyn Smith & Nicky Foster, West Mobile, AL
