Wanda was amazing! She goes above and beyond in every way to make sure you find the house of your dreams. It was a long-distance move/search and she made the process amazing every step of the way. I can't say enough - she really is the best.
I highly recommend Rhonda Barham because of her market expertise, responsiveness, negotiation skills, communication, professionalism, attention to detail, honesty and integrity, empathy, patience, and willingness to help her clients 7 days a week, including Holidays! :)
I called Rhonda on the afternoon of New Year's Eve to help me look at a home I was interested in purchasing. She answered my phone call within 15 minutes, and arranged with the seller's realtor for us to see the property the next day. By the time we met on New Year's Day (yes, New Year's Day!) to look at the property, Rhonda had already done the upfront work and research on the property, price comparisons and all other details in the area. I fell in love with the property and Rhonda helped me negotiate an offer that was accepted in a few days, and she didn't mind the multiple times I wanted to go back for another look at the property!
After my purchase offer was accepted, the really hard work was just beginning. I had lived in my previous home over 18 years and was rusty with the buy/sell process. Rhonda immediately went into "Super Hero Realtor" mode, getting a contract drawn up for myself and her/Allen Tate to sell my existing home, guiding me to help get it ready for market (including top-notch recommendations how to stage it and she even brought over a rug for the entrance foyer, hiring top-notch vendors for deep cleaning and minor repairs ), doing comparisons for sales in the area, and determining a competitive but fair price point. I had 100% confidence and trust in Rhonda, and never had one disagreement with her. She had my home on the market for the first Open House by the following Sunday, and I accepted a full-price offer late Thursday that week!
Rhonda helped me get through the emotional and physical drain of selling and buying at the same time. I've never met anyone like her. I'm very grateful for her help, expertise, honesty and integrity. She checked in with me every day (including weekends) keeping me up to date on the progress of inspections, paperwork, feedback and tasks to do for both contracts, never lost patience with me and pitched in to help as I suffered several anxiety attacks from the stress. She walked my dog, helped me clean, helped me dig up and relocate landscaping bricks, and brought over boxes for packing. On moving day, she brought food for me and the movers, and ended up helping us pack so I could be out of the house before the carpet cleaners came. On closing day (both were on the same day), she took me to Starbucks for my favorite coffee to chat and relax, then showed me how using the I-540 expressway was a faster route to closing! That was fun! :)
Rhonda has followed up to see how I'm doing at my new home. I look forward to inviting her over as soon as I get organized!
I first met Rhonda in 2017, when my daughter and son-in-law hired her to sell their home in Morrisville after they moved to the Seattle area. She staged and sold their home in less than 24 hours. Last Summer, as they planned to move back to the East Coast, she helped them sell their home in the Seattle area and purchase another home in NJ. While they were here for a visit, she came to my home to help them with the negotiation process, and sat with my 3-year old granddaughter. They speak very highly of her, and we all consider her a dear friend.
Thank you Rhonda, and we love you!
My adventure in finding a place in Cary was a good experience due to my agent's help. Wanda Mattingly's determination and experience showed up every step of the process. She had my best interest in mind all the way to a successful end.
