We had initiated the home search online, as we were living out of state, and were relatively unfamiliar with the area. Greg was always able to expand our knowledge of the various neighborhoods, and was immediately responsive to all our queries. When we finally narrowed our search to a particular neighborhood, he suggested video walk-throughs of each house we were interested in. After narrowing our choices ,we flew down in order to choose from among the ones we had chosen to pursue. Due to his construction background, he was also able point out advantages and disadvantages to each home we looked at, many being things we might not have known ourselves at first look. Having chosen our perfect home, he negotiated on our behalf with skill and closed the deal in a day and a half. After we closed, he was also a really valuable source of referrals to local vendors and craftsmen for renovations . Since we were managing this from a distance, it was incredibly important that everyone that was hired be dependable and timely, as we had a timeline for our long distance move. Our house was finished on time, and far exceeded the expectations and vision we had for it. We couldn't recommend Greg more highly!
We didn't know Greg in advance, however, our chance encounter with him turned out to be an absolute no regret situation. Greg brings a low key and low pressure approach, but, is a very serious businessman. He is patient, analytical, approachable, thoughtful and very responsive to every question and request. Greg listened closely to all of our thoughts and needs. He continually demonstrated a strong knowledge of real estate, the local market, the various laws, the contractual requirements and the buying and selling process. Greg was prepared and organized for each coming step of our purchase. It was terrific to have someone lead us through entire process with no surprises. Thank you Greg!
!!!!!! He was totally committed to my wife and I. Always answering our questions and concerns at all times of the day or night (reasonable times). He devised a great plan/offer for us to afford the house my wife and I loved. Without Greg we would not have been able to get the house we wanted. Greg is great with all details involved with the purchasing of a house. My wife and I will never use anyone else as long as Greg is working in the area. I highly recommend Greg and in fact, Greg is the ONLY realtor you need to contact when looking the St. Augustine area. Greg McCarthy is a GREAT realtor!
He never makes me feel pressured. He is patient and he never seems irritated - even when he's brought me to a property that meets all my requirements but I just "don't like something about it.". He's very knowledgeable and answers all my questions quickly, and I ask a lot of questions...I just really appreciate his demeanor and his proficiency as a realtor. I've bought several houses with him and he's my go-to guy for it all.
As first time buyers, we were worried that it would be a stressful process, but Greg made it easy and painless. He exceeded expectations for a realtor. He is professional, understanding and extremely knowledgeable. He truly wants the best for his clients and will go above and beyond to do plenty of research to help you make educated decisions throughout the purchasing process. He put our needs first and was a loyal advocate for us throughout negotiations. What's even better is that Greg continues to stay in touch and has been an excellent resource for us, even 6 months after we closed. He is an absolute pleasure to work with!
