    Definitely went above and beyond! Got us a price that was phenomenal and was always quickly and easily contactable. Does that excellent synthesis of being approachable and easygoing with the clients (us) while also being a strong negotiator and on-the-ball with the other side. Never had a second where we were in the dark!

    Ray really went above and beyond. It was a bit of a drive for him to get up here, but he happily made it -sometimes on the spur of the moment- many many times. He made it very obvious that he was willing to put in the time and effort to get us the best deal, even if that meant a lot more work for him. I cannot say enough good things about him -we were very flattered to be treated so well during such a long, and sometimes complicated process. It was a process that he made A LOT less stressful and more understandable for us! We fully intend to recommend him to any and all friends and family in this area, and to request his involvement the next time we need to buy and sell. Thanks Ray!!!

    I had a wonderful experience with Ray. I called him on a Friday to put my house on the market and on Monday he showed me comps and worked with me to price my house where I felt comfortable. He explained things clearly to me so I could make smart decisions. My house was on the market in 2 days and sold that weekend. Ray was available that weekend to negotiate on my behalf and got me my asking price. He went above and beyond to make the sale of my house work for everyone. Then I had to buy a house quicker than I anticipated and again he was always available to show me any house we found. He was never pushy or in a rush. It has felt like I have a friend in the real estate business and never felt worried or anxious, Ray always made every turn ok.

    We bought a new home and sold the previous home with Ray's help. Ray was always available to go look at whatever homes we wanted to look at and was always ready to discuss options for the sell of the previous home.

    Ray was friendly and willing to let us look at which house peaked our interests; he would give input when asked. Once we found a house we liked, he was all over the deal and ensured the seller's realtor stayed on target and we closed as scheduled.

    I can't begin to explain how vital Ray's expertise and assistance were to my home buying experience. I am so thankful he was my agent! I always felt like my wants and needs were valid and respected. I highly recommend using him if you are purchasing a home, in fact I have already passed his info along to two friends. Thanks Ray!

    Ray has been amazing! We started our journey with him from across the country in Maryland and he had helped us every step if the way. He answered any questions we had and always answered the phone when we needed him. We are finally in our new home thanks to Ray! I would most definitely recommend him to everyone I know and those relocating. Thanks Ray for all you hard work and dedication!

    This was my second time working with Ray to buy a house. This house needed some additional work after the inspection and Ray was invaluable working through multiple issues. The sellers missed a couple of deadlines but Ray was able to keep the process going and we ended up with a good deal.

    It appears that this review thinks I am the purchaser of the 512 W. 3900 N property in Pleasant View. However, I am the seller. My husband and I have also purchased our home through Ray Clayton as our realtor. Both experiences have been the BEST possible. Both situations were difficult, but handled smoothly and without worry with Ray at the helm! As I finished the last transaction, I told him that he was "my realtor for life." I count him as a friend, and actually miss him very much because he used to be a part of my daily life.

    Ray is an amazing realtor. He helped us find the perfect home and I never felt pressured to buy any of the homes we looked at. Because of his knowledge of construction he gave good quick appraisals on the condition of the homes we looked at. After we made an offer on a home, he worked hard and quickly so that we closed on our home in about 3 weeks. I can't imagine the process going any smoother or better.

    It sometimes seemed I was doing all of the work. He showed us many houses we didn't like the first time twice and he would often show us the wrong house that we requested. Also, he sometimes had no idea where the house he was showing us was located. Overall, I would not recommend him, but I would recommend Zip Realty. On a positive note, Ray did refer us to, in my opinion, the best mortgage company in the state.

    Throughout the entire process, I never felt as though my agent's number one concern was my best interest. While this was a business transaction, I felt we were entering into a business relationship which would be beneficial to both parties involved; myself and my realtor. Throughout my entire home-buying process, I felt as though my agent's number one concern was the sale and his commission. Again, there was never one instant where I felt as though his goal was to represent me and my interests. As a first-time home-buyer, I had lots of questions. There were times when I felt as though he seemed to be inconvenienced by my questions. Additionally, there were some questions I had to ask multiple times before getting an answer and some which went unanswered. While he did take the time to show me different properties and did meet all legal requirements outlined in the buyer's agent agreement, his customer service skills were entirely lacking and frankly quite shameful - to the point that at times he was argumentative with me. This is not the attitude of a realtor working FOR a buyer. Additionally, at times he was less than honest with me. While he never outright lied to me, on a few ocassions he'd withheld the entire truth in order to best protect his and the selling realtors interests versus protecting my interests. While I fully realize that construction delays are beyond an agent's control, during the 2-month period of one delay follwed by another he never once offered to show me alternate properties though he realized the urgency of my need to purchase a home. In all honesty, I've met and dealt with used car salesmen who possess a better sense of ethics and more refined customer service skills.

    It's unfortunate she felt the way she did. I went out of my way to help her throughout the entire purchase. She was from Back East and I even went the extra mile and found her a rental close to where she worked so she was not rushed into a decision. She even received a free Washer and Dryer because of some of the construction delay. I believe that once she started the work she transferred to, she was getting conflicting advice from a friend at work and developed some type of buyer remorse. I have never had a Real Estate experience before or after this transaction with this type of response. I would still work with her in the future.
