My experience with Freddy Wenzel was simply outstanding. My wife and I were looking to downsize to a smaller home in a very limited geographical area. Freddy worked with us on a very personal basis and helped us to understand what we really wanted. At one point, Freddy even told us that “You might decide to buy this house, but I will not sell it to you!” Freddy is knowledgeable and always available. he would always show up on short notice and take us to see potential homes. It was his local area knowledge and networking that enabled us to purchase our new home. We simply could not have done this without him. I have been watching the listing since our offer was accepted and there has still not been another home like the one Freddy found!

Freddy was the third realtor that I interviewed to sell my late father’s house. My father was an architect and engineer and had designed the house, which was where I grew up. As I showed Freddy the house I began to realize that there was something different about him. His questions and comments revealed considerable attention to detail and also knowledge of materials and construction. More importantly, he listened very closely to the story of my father and the house, and therefore could relate to what I was going through on a personal level, and also understand what I wanted for the property’s future. Choosing Freddy was the best decision I could have made. His marketing strategy was excellent – he hired a home staging consultant who provided many useful recommendations and a professional photographer who came up with beautiful pictures. The open house attracted a record attendance and generated multiple offers, all but one of which were above asking price. Needless to say, the entire experience and the final sale exceeded my expectations.
