Tina Linder
We were very pleased with Fred and always refer him to anyone we hear interested in buying/selling a home.
Rich Weaver
Fred went above our expectations when we were searching for a home in the area under a very tight time constraint! He understood our needs and found us the perfect home for us. He was professional and friendly without being overbearing or trying to push us into something out of our budget. Fred did such a great job that we used him again when we had to sell our home.
Ellen Hoscheit
Fred is a very hard worker and went out of his way to sell our home and purchase our current one. He was always very professional and honest. We trusted Fred completely and wouldn't hesitate to enlist his services again. We were quite impressed. Plus he is a really nice guy!!!!
Roger and Patricia Mleynek
Six months later and we are still talking to family and friends about the great experience we had with Fred Van Hook; in selling our home and buying another, on the same day. We highly commend him on his congenial optimism, his leadership, his very extensive knowledge of the Greater Lafayette area and his unfailing ability to manage the whole process efficiently and effectively. We will definitely use Fred again.
J. Shepson
We purchased our property through Fred and we were amazed and impressed with him throughout the process. He has been incredibly responsive, both during our purchase and afterwards. Over the past year I have emailed him several times with various odd questions and he has replied almost immediately and been most helpful every single time. We have dear friends who are dismissing their current realtor and switching to Fred because they have been so impressed with what we've said about him. We could not possible recommend him highly enough!
