“No one sells More homes for More Money (and in Less time) in Fairway Estates than Ed Savard….no one!

March 2009
Dear Ed 

My parents are both in their 80’s and it was time for them to move closer to me in Tampa.  They needed to sell their home at 1404 Suwanee Road in Fairway Estates in a reasonable amount of time.  You met with them and me and answered all of our questions.  The particularly tough ones involved listing price and your estimated time to sell.  You said that you could guarantee that their home would sell quicker and at a higher price than if we listed with any other realtor.  I just assumed that was part of your “sales pitch”. 

 You listed my parents’ home on a Friday.  The following Monday, you presented them with an offer from a buyer.  Not only that, but the offer was within 6% of their asking price.  You accomplished this during the worst housing crisis in the history of Florida.  That was the nuts and bolts of the deal. 

 The thing that I really want to thank you for involved the level of service you provided throughout the process.  You went out of your way to keep my sister and I updated as things occurred so we can better explain to our parents.  You adjusted your schedule to accommodate ours.  You stopped by the house periodically to let my parents know what was going to happen next.  You even went so far as to move up the closing date with less than a week’s notice so my parents would not have to spend an extra 2 nights in a motel.  The compassion and caring that you showed for my parents throughout the process exceeded all of our expectations and is just something to which we were not accustomed.   

 I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done for my parents in making sale of their home so stress free.                               

Thank you,

Dear Ed,

We’d just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you for the wonderful experience we had working with you as our realtor. When we saw that the market had really slowed down, we wanted to take advantage of it as a buyer, but in order to do that we needed to sell our current home first. We had heard good things about you through other residents of Fairway Estates and contacted you immediately. We also met with some other agents but knew from the start you were the one we wanted to go with. Your incredible knowledge about real estate market, great personality, and excellent track record sealed the deal for us. 

   With the market being so slow, we expected our house to be on the market for months, but you sold our home in just 20 DAYS for 98% of our asking price!!!! Nobody we share our success story with can believe how quickly we sold our home! We tell them it was all because of Ed Savard. Not only did you sell our home fast, but you also helped us find our new home just as quickly. We were able to close on both homes on the same day! It was an absolute dream experience! We love our new home and just wanted to thank you for helping us find it. 

    Again, we just want to say what a pleasure it was to work with you. You always answered your phone or returned calls immediately no matter what time or day of the week. We don’t know when you take a break because it seems like you are always working and on top of things! We think that one of the best qualities about you Ed is that you made us feel like your only clients even though we know you had several at the same time. We don’t know how you do it, but you are one of the best realtors in Daytona Beach, and we hope we can send lots of referrals your way in the future. Thank you again and thank you for the basketball!! It has been getting lots of use on the basketball court.

Dear Ed:

Thanks for your help in getting our home sold in three months in one of the worst housing markets in years. It was a pleasure working with you and appreciate your professionalism and guidance through this stressful time.

Dear Ed, 

The biggest mistake we made in selling our house is that we didn’t call you first. As you know, we had our house listed with Adams Cameron for over four months without any success. We were shocked to discover that our agent has had only one sale on the MLS in all of 2007. I guess we should have checked her track record before listing with her.

 We know you sell a lot of homes in Fairway Estates, so when our listing expired we called you. You were wonderful and tried to help us in every way. You understood our situation and were kind and considerate. As nice as you are, the important thing is that you sold our house in just 42 days! Other homes listed by other agents have been on the market for a long time but you got ours sold and sold fast. Thanks Ed to you and your staff. You’re great!

Dear Ed,  

Thanks you and your staff for such a great job in selling our home in just three weeks! Selling a home in this market is like winning a lottery and we feel that we picked a winner when we picked you to sell our home.

 When the first sale fell through you said not to worry and you had another buyer and sold it again the very next day. Thanks for the great job and thanks for always keeping us informed.

Most Sincerely,
Frank & Helen Sherwood

Dear Ed,
     After our listing expired a with another agent we got your letter about listing with your. We got lots of letters from other agents as well but yours was different. You made promises not offered by any other agents, like your guaranteed sale and your cancellation agreement. I told Glenn I was going to meet with you and called you to come over to our house.
     Well, as you know, I was so impressed with your presentation and track record, I called Glenn and told him to come home from work and hear for himself what you had to say. The rest they say is history. You brought us not ONE but TWO offers and sold our house in just six weeks. The market may be slow but you lived up to your reputation and your promise. We only have one regret and that's that we didn't know about your the first time we listed our house.
     Thanks  to you and your staff for keeping us informed and getting our house sold in such a tough market. It has been a pleasure working with you.

Dear Ed,

WOW!!! You actually bought someone else’s home so that they could buy ours! With relocating to Washington State we were concerned about our house selling in such a slow market but with your Trade-Up Program you made it happen for the buyers and for us. 

What an innovative idea, buying someone’s home so that they can buy another and avoid getting stuck with two homes. Thanks again for your help and your great ideas. They really work!

We wish you continued success,

Dear Ed,
     When we called you about selling our home and buying another we were concerned about the risk of buying without selling our present home. You explained to us that with your Guaranteed Sale Program, you would buy our house if it were not to sell by the time we closed on our new home. We were skeptical buy you did exactly what you said you would do. You bought our old home!
    Well, we moved into our new home and we love it. We also love the fact that we were not stuck owning two homes. You came through with your Guaranteed Sale and purchased our home on Chardonnay Drive and you took all the risk.
     If anyone asks if your Guaranteed Sale Program is for real, tell them to call us. It is for real and we thank you for all you have done for us.

Dear Pat Savard,
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance with the purchase of my first home. When Betty Parker referred your name to me, she spoke very highly of your professionalism, and of your character. After looking at my first home with you, I knew that you were sincere in having my best interest in mind. I have looked at homes with other realtors in the past and even made it to a closing table once. Leaving the details out, I will say that the process was stressful and chaotic. I walked away from the closing without signing the papers. It was a lesson for me that I do not regret. You returned my phone calls promptly. You were very accessible to the point that I felt as if I were your only client. You are a true professional and I felt that you really cared about finding a home that I would love. I told you what I wanted and you made it happen. Being a first time buyer, I was quite naive about negotiation and you were my advocate. You lead me to a wonderful team of people at Countrywide for financing and everything went smooth in my perspective. During the walkthrough inspection, you noticed that the previous owners dug up trees and you addressed the issue with results. When the bathroom light fixture had not been repaired as promised by the owner's, you took care of it. You had the carpets cleaned and the grass cut. Your support at the closing was fantastic! You were very apologetic about some of the minor issues previously mentioned and stated that closings usually go smoothly. In my opinion, it always was a smooth process. You were effective in your communication and spoke to me in a language which I was able to comprehend. Now I'm in my home 2 months and you are still in contact with me! I am so impressed with your service and I would recommend you to everyone. I want your company, RE/MAX, to know that you are an extraordinary individual and what an honor it is to have had the cream of the crop as my realtor.
In closing, I wish to express my sincere gratitude for your superb service. Thank you for your assistance in a dream come true for my family.
Sincerely, Laura Cohen

We just couldn’t believe it when the day after you listed our house you sold it! The for sale sign wasn’t even up. We couldn’t be more happy and you made our day! Not only did you get us top dollar you got it quick. It’s true, you are the Fairway Estates real estate expert. We couldn’t imagine why anyone would call anyone but you if they are thinking of buying or selling in Fairway Estates.            Thanks again Ed.

WOW!!! What can I say but thanks for selling my house in just 3 days for the highest price any home has sold for in Fairway Estates! You certainly live up to your reputation in Fairway Estates, that no one sells more homes for more money and quicker than you do. Thanks Ed and I wish you continued success.

Jane and I want to say “thank you” the great job you did in finding us the home on Golfview Drive.  When we told you what we were looking for in a home you found it and got it for us at our price and terms.  You’re the best Pat!

You always returned our calls, explained everything to us and helped us all the way through from the offer to the home inspections to the financing and to the closing.  We can’t understand why anyone looking to buy a home would consider using anyone else.  Thanks again for the great j
Ed and Team, Thank you so much for all that you did for us! Not only were you so friendly  but also so professional and efficient. Even though we had met you only a few times, you had become a part of our family.
  Texas is ready to break out in bloom, this is just a inkling of what we see here at this time of year. Thought you might want some blue bonnets to scatter in the field behind your home. Again, we thank you for making our move a little less dramatic, we knew our "old" home was in good hands.
Wishing you continued success, Dave & Sharon Custer
