"Realtor survey Sellers: Jim and Pat GeeRealtor: John Tisdall, @PropertiesOur house (priced in the $1m+ price range) was on the market for more than 2 ½ years. We imagined that our Lake Geneva home would probably most likely find a buyer interested in a luxury second home (with lake access and boat slip). John Tisdall from @Properties contacted us in December 2016. We were immediately impressed with Johns professional approach. His follow-up was persistent without being annoying. And John offered us something we had not seen before; a solid network of @Property referrals from nearby Chicago. In the first 2 months, our showing volume doubled. In 4 months, John brought us an offer that we accepted. But our updated plat survey revealed that 3-inches of the back corner of our 30 year old detached garage (built with permit) encroached on the neighbors property. The neighbor would not negotiate a resolution and our buyer would not wait for us to resolve the issue. Our buyer was gone. We had to start from square one.Our selling situation suddenly became very complicated. Lot line resolution options would take months. To our surprise, John never gave up, rather he became very proactive. It was as if he took these issues personally. He stood with us through Township and County variance applications and approvals, and was always there with good advice and guidance.John found us new buyers who loved the house. It was a perfect fit for them. We closed a week ago.John was an incredibly competent representative for us; endlessly patient, well prepared and extremely generous with his time. Best yet, we have found someone who we consider a friend as well."

"John sold my house in less than half the time I was listed with my first agent. I think his honesty in deciding a price and the vast exposure @Properties uses was major contributing factors"
