Testimonials for James Renfro SRS, SFR, CPRES
I have only good things to say about Renfro Realty Group. We had a easy time when we bought our house through them. Now that its time to sell our home, my husband and I won't use any other group!
I got very lucky finding James Renfro. Do not waste your time and gas on luck.James will help you create a list of needs, wants and don't wants and only send you to homes that you not only qualify for but that you can actually afford. As a senior and a first time buyer he made the process very easy. After finding your home he has a network of the finest people to finish the job. And then your home.
No property is too small to list or sell! Thanks to James Renfro we went to the house found on line and made a bid. Several other local real estate brokers did not call back or even return my emails. I was pre-approved for a loan and the house bid was less than the amount borrowed. Now that the housing market is coming back in our area people are investing again and home owners are buying and some of my neighbors are fixing up their homes and selling them. I for one do not fall in love with each of my homes, soon I'll remodel this house and go for my 10th home or 12th lot.
First time buyer! James and his specialists held my hand through the whole process, from the initial interview to the 'here are your documents on CD for your new home". Three notable things that gave me the confidence to purchase my new home: 1) A home I wanted - required a trip to the city's buildings/permits office - James was there, house home inspection James was there -- summary add on not permitted and structural damage led to a no-go...keep looking, 2) Finding a lender, my bank was slow to process - James found me a broker - that was responsive, respectfully, and provided the customer service that again gave this first time home buyer the confidence to move forward with a home purchase, 3) The market -- everything was a short sale or foreclosure -- gess how disappointing for a buyer -- couldn't compete with all the flippers buying up restate, James patiently waited and still visited the listing I wanted to see, until I had the epiphany - I could wait for a process and get a home maybe in 6-9 months at a 'deal' or I could be enjoying a home from a standard sale -- My choice and either way he'd be there to assist -- short story long -- I went for the standard sale. You can educate yourself all day from the internet but finding a professional that is willing to take the time, not only to find you house (not treating you like a commission) but to sit down and go over the details,(the whys and why fors) with you, that can recommend others that are apart of the process to home ownership to assist you (escrow, inspections, taxes, warranties... what?), and has the right staff in place that are happy and quick to respond when you're wavering. Can really take off some of the stress of buying a home for the first time.
I HAD THEM SELL MY CONDO UNDER A SHORT SALE PROCESS. IT TOOK A LONG TIME AND WE HAD TO DEAL WITH 3 DIFFERENT BUYERS. BANK OF AMERICA WAS ALSO VERY DIFFICULT TO DEAL WITH, AND TIME CONSUMING. RENFRO DID AN EXCELLENT JOB THROUGH ALL THE PROCESS

My wife I engaged James Renfro to be our agent for the purpose of searching for a specific property we were looking to purchase. Because we were looking for some property in a metro area, it meant James had to run us all over the outer skirts of the county, with never a single complaint. James call bocks and his support staff response was excellent.
I would definitely recommend Renfro Realty Group to Friends and Family
James Renfro and an associate were in my neighborhood going door to door seeking new clients one afternoon. After friendly greetings and a following conversation, I explained that my mother had passed away and I wanted to sell her property that was now vacant. The house sold after a few days and all parties were as happy as a clam at high tide!
I was in a fight to do a short sale and James and his team was able to take care of everything for me and sell my home. The stress he took from me was incredible. He kept in touch with me every step of the way. I had a buyer within weeks !!
I purchased a home in 2012 through the Renfro Realty Group it was a flawless experience. They are prompt, professional and a pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate to use them again with buying or selling a home and would recommend to friends, family and anyone else.
James Renfro and his team helped my fiance and I fine and close on our first home at the end of in 2012. He showed alot of patients with me as I came into the market with the old champagne taste but with beer budget. He stuck with me the whole time no matter how difficult I made it. He kept in contact with us just about every day and always made time to show my fiance and I a house even on a short notice of us calling him. He walked through every house with us and used his own experience on what a house with good bones looks like, he inspected the little things that we would not even have thought about looking at. James made sure that I got a house that was in a great location even though at times I just wanted to buy any house in any locations just because of price. It made me feel really good HE DID NOT TRY TO SELL US A HOUSE HE WAS HELPING US FIND A HOME. I just cant say enough we got a great home that we love and have tons of equity in now, he helped us beat out all the cash buyers and get through the short sale process which is almost a must have skill now a days. I would recommend James to anyone and everyone. Thanks again James
