    Amber gave Lance 5 stars out of 5
    Lance sold 5 of our properties! If you are looking for a realtor to go to bat for you and help you get what you want - Lance is who you want and here is why: After my father had a stroke and needed full time care - I was left with taking care of him and having to deal with all his rental properties (I also lived out of state and couldn’t travel). We got in contact with Lance and over a year and a half period he helped us sell 5 properties. Each property was different. He helped us fix up and sell a home for over market value, sell a fixer upper, split up a property and create another parcel of land to sell, and sell a commercial convenience store. Lance always knew who to call or who to refer - he has a great network of people from contractors to estate dealers. His knowledge of the local area and the growth of the NWA area is powerful. He was able to sell a property to the city because he knew their growth plan. He helped us hire a land surveyor and then stayed on top of all the city council meetings and deadlines in order to make sure our property had a chance to be looked at - which helped us get it sold. We had a major catastrophe with the snow storms in Feb ’21 which caused a pipe to burst and flooded the first floor of one of the properties - all the while I was in Florida on a boat with little phone reception. Lance sprang into action - had the water stopped, construction crews ripping out the mess before any damage or mold could set in and then got right to work with updating the listing. We were able to sell that property within 4 months. He helped walk me through owner financing a deal that gave the owner an option to buy a parcel of land that was next to the property. Was able to refer us to an attorney and aided us as best he could through that process. He also put us in contact with an attorney that helped facilitate a 1031 exchange for one of the properties. One of the properties we needed to get rid of all the items and furniture inside. Lance referred us to a couple that was able to go in, sort items, have estate sells, sell off all the furniture using online apps like OfferUp - basically take care of everything that I couldn’t do. When we had a water leak in the yard - Lance knew before I did and had the water company shutting off the water. Lance is on top of his game. He goes above and beyond the call of duty to get properties sold. He may seem overly obsessive to some - but he dots all the “i”s and crosses all the “t”s. He doesn’t assume anything and is constantly calling to make sure everyone is one the same page. This was the experience that we had. Lance helped us when I couldn’t physically be there, and to be honest I couldn’t emotionally deal with everything needing to be done while taking care of my Dad. I highly recommend Lance and will use him again if we are ever dealing in the NWA area.

    Was great at first then caught him lying to me.

    It is sad when a client is unhappy because he didn't follow through with his obligations after I secured an owner financed home for him and an option on land next to it as well. He gave up his option on the land and someone else bought it. Sour grapes doesn't merit calling someone a liar and defaming their sterling reputation!

    I would highly recommend Lance for the sale of a home. Lance made the sale of our home less of an anxiety based on his continued efforts to keep us up to date on each step of the process. He was also very dedicated to getting us what we were asking for our home and made sure our contract reflected our wishes. He provided timely feedback on any repairs we needed to get done before the sale, even going so far as to recommend several contractors that gave us options. He allowed us to put our best foot forward and worked hard for our best interests.

    Our experience with Lance was excellent! He was very attentive to detail and very accommodating as well as very professional. He did a fantastic job with coordinating between us and the seller who was from another state. We would definitely use him again for any future home buying or selling. We would highly recommend him.

    I seriously enjoy working with a client that also enjoys bringing older houses back to their original glory or a new more modern application. Steve is great to work with and a perfectionist like myself!

    Lance is the true professional... a real estate leader. I wish I had met him years ago to handle all my real estate needs. As an out of state investor, it's imperative that you have, and can rely on a representative like Lance. He does not hesitate to utilize all the tools available to effect a sale. Should you have a need for a great realtor, please contact Lance for positive and satisfying results.

    We approached Lance about selling our home we thought in the spring. Within 1 month our home sold. Lance was well informed on the local area and city plans for expansion, he brought 1 couple to show and highlighted the best features of our home and negotiated the best price for us. He was very helpful in our process and made it so easy for us. I would highly recommend Lance as Your Real Estate agent and would use his service again.

    Lance was a real pleasure to work with. He represented a buyer on my house and I can say, he worked hard to make sure everything was right. Lance's attention to detail was special, he communicated very well and always followed up on anything that needed to be done. He made sure his client got what she wanted and stayed on me to make sure it happened. He has a good work ethic and I would recommend him to anyone looking for strong representation on a real estate deal.

    I believe that even if I don't contractually represent a for sale by owner , I do represent them morally and will do my best to see that they are taken care of just as I would my clients!
