A Complete Turn Around for us
October 30, 2006 To whom it may concern, We have just had the great privilege of working with Kirsten and Rosemarie Averhoff on the sale of our home. We had it listed under a friend in the real estate business for six months with no success. When Rosemarie and Kirstin took over it was a complete turnaround. They are very professional and knowledgeable. They told us what we should have been told six months prior. Our house has a contract due to their work and dedication to us. We recommend them without hesitation.
Genuine Concern for us, just like family. -
Our search for homes in Columbia began with just an idea for location. Rosemarie helped to shape that idea by sharing her knowledge about area schools, home values, construction methods, traffic patterns, local services. etc. She acquainted herself with our likes and dislikes, our hopes, our wishes, and helped us do a thorough and complete search for a home. It was clear from our first interaction that Rosemarie had our best interest in mind. We never felt she was in a rush for a sale. She closely inspected each home we visited for potential problems. She even thought of the future resale of a home and gave the pros and cons objectively. Rosemarie embodies what a Relator® should be. She treated us like family, and was genuinely concerned that we found what was right for us. We are so grateful we found Rosemarie and love the house she found for us! (a new home)
What they say about Rosemarie and Kirstin -
"Rosemarie handled the sale of our house with exceptional skill and dedication. Her advice every step of the way was correct, highly professional and lead to that we sold the house at the asking price. Rosemarie took the stand of telling is the truth of what needed to be done to put our house in a sellable condition. To sell our house with Rosemarie's help was a pleasure and we highly recommend her."
"I cannot recall a more stressful time in my life and the lives of our family. Being totally unfamiliar with Columbia, we had to place blind trust in someone. Rosemarie took the time before we started our search to ask questions. Better, she listened to the description of the house we had to sell due to our relocation and we wanted to find here. I am probably a hard person to please, as I knew what I wanted and nothing less. Rosemarie understood this. From our past experience with Realtors, Rosemarie is superb."
"To our delight Rosemarie & Kirstin was just what the doctor ordered. They understood the situation we were in, were extreemely patient with our reluctance not to committ too quickly since I had only 1 week house hunting. They spent an inordinate amount of time understanding our needs and wants and what we were trying to find in a home and community."
"When buying our first home we found Rosemarie a very able, and especially very patient lady. I called on her various hours, early morning to late at night, and she was never upset, but always ready to help us. Her personality was always kind, friendly and gracious. We appreciate this lady."
Thanks for all your help in making our "dream home" a reality. We really appreciated that you went the extra mile to get us the best price for our home. You are truly a professional.
In all our dealings with Realtors over the past ten years, we have never met anyone as helpful and energetic as you have been. Without hesitation, we would highly recommend your service to anyone who is looking for an experienced Realtor who cares about getting things done and doing them right! Thanks for taking such good care of us, we couldn't have done it without you!
Rosemarie and Kirstin met more than my expectations
October 29, 2006 - To Whom It May Concern: When I contacted Rosemarie and Kirstin Averhoff regarding the sell of two homes, I did not realize how lucky I was to be for choosing them. This mother and daughter team has more than met my expectations. While a sale of a home can be complicated in itself, it is more so when a parent is the one who will be leaving her home of 30 years due to illness. Rosemarie and Kirstin were, of course, very knowledgeable and helpful but they went beyond those bounds by being supportive to me in this emotional time. They took time to explain things to me ¿ sometimes several times. My mother¿s home sold quickly and effectively due to their diligence. We are still in the process of selling my home after I relocated, and even though it is taking longer due to several factors, they have remained committed, understanding and patient. Their shoulders have been there for me to lean on, as I have come to trust and appreciate them as professionals and now friends. I will always remember that Rosemarie and Kirstin, a mother and daughter team, have helped another mother and daughter team to make a major transition much easier than expected. I cannot thank them enough, and will always suggest their real estate services. Sincerely,
You made buying a home so easy for my wife and I. We were grateful for how much patience you used in answering all of our questions and taking us to look at so many houses. You never pushed us into looking at something we were not interested in. We strongly recommend you to anyone looking at buying a new home.

This is to say THANK YOU so much for being the kind of realtor every family deserves. I knew from the first time that I spoke with you on the phone that you were going to be fantastic but you far exceeded what a realtor should ever contend with over the sale of a home. You not only had to deal with a sagging economy but you constantly found new ways to market the home despite many obstacles with our home. As you know, our home had not been updated very much over the years and that alone can cause many challenges. You were able to bring offers to us that no other agency had been able to do and we cannot thank you enough for all of your efforts in selling our home.
It has been a pleasure to work with you over this period of time and our family thanks you for all of your hard work, the time you put into our home and keeping us apprised along the way. You are one of those rare realtors that every community should have. Can you come to North Carolina?
Have a great summer and stay in touch with us!
Way beyond the call of duty - Way beyond the call of duty. We like to express our gratitude to Rosemarie Averhoff for all her outstanding services. We couldn't have found a better Realtor! Her high level of professionalism. honesty, and vast general knowledge helped us find our "dream home" on day one! Moving from Germany to the United States of America seemed like a truly difficult task, especially as first-time home buyers. Rosemarie, however, with all of her care, thoughtfulness and help - way beyond the call of duty - made this move an unforgettable positive experience in every aspect! We couldn't have done it without her. We can highly recommend her professional services! Tausend Dank, Rosemarie!
