Our condominium was on the market for approximately two and one-half years with another realtor who provided a traditional real estate service...open housings, showings, multiple listing service, etc. During that time, we received one offer and it was so far below our asking price that we declined to even entertain it. When we finally chose to find another realtor, Creg McDonald presented his sales approach and philosophy to us and it made so much sense. Fourteen days after we became TMG customers, our home sold. And it sold while we were living thousands of miles away in a foreign country...but not one hiccup was made by the TMG team. They put us in touch with an attorney who handled our sale...and they assisted in every phase of the transaction until the closing was completed. My wife and I would recommend TMG to anyone...and Creg McDonald as the most trustworthy and energenic realtor we have ever met. Without exception, I am willing to provide my personal recommendation to anyone who has a home to sell.
Thanks for everything. Never thought I would find a buyer so fast(the next day after your sign was put in my yard was really impressive). I really appreciated how things came up during closing I thought were going to be problems really weren't and appreciated how Creg told me just to keep farming and the McDonald group would handle everything. I was very pleased and would definitely recommend the McDonald Group to anyone else selling their house.
Being first time homebuyers, we really appreciated all of the help we got from Liz. Liz is very knowledgeable, and she definitely made us feel much more comfortable about buying a home. With her help, we felt like we became more competent in the homebuying process, as well as learning about the different neighborhoods in Champaign.
We contacted your office after hours and left a message for Angie. Within 30 minutes, we had her on the phone. We did a walk through the next day and were off and running. We designated Angie Brix as our realtor on our preapproval and she was able to work directly with our bank throughout the proceedings. I was always able to say with confidence, I shot them off an email, we will hear back in the next hour!
Katie worked very hard to find us a home in our price range. We were impressed with her undivided attention to us in spite of the constant pressure from other clients. We always felt that we were important and that she enjoyed her job and work.
Liz Jones and TMG got me 8 showings within 24 hours of my listing going up on the web, and I had sold my house in 3 days after the listing allowing me to sell at a nice profit and to buy my dream house in the country, they were outstanding and professional to work with and exceeded even my wildest dreams.
I felt that Creg gave honest, realistic advice from the first day we met to discuss putting our home on the market. TMG has an extremely well thought out and comprehensive approach to home sales. I was very impressed with their extensive Internet use. We were informed weekly with a report of on-line viewings, showings, and realtor or potential buyer comments. TMG made selling our old (in need of updating and repair) house in a slow market as enjoyable and painless as possible!
I worked with Liz Jones at The McDonald Group. She is AMAZING. Her knowledge of real estate is astounding. She is a gem. She handles her clients with grace and charm. She does what she says, she delivers, she performs.. Liz gave us great council, our condo had a good offer within 5 days.
Creg was terrific. He has helped us through a number of home sales throughout our time in the community and has been a tireless advocate each and every time.
Beth was very helpful and personable. She was very patient in showing the houses. She can be contacted at any time for questions. I highly recommend her.
