Testimonials

Jennifer Reid was great to work with and made the home buying process incredibility smooth! Being a first time home buyer I was very anxious with making a decision on a home and location and somewhat overwhelmed with everything required during the home purchasing process. But Jennifer was great! She was able to hone in on homes and locations that fit the criteria needed for my family.She also guided me though the process and explained every step along the way. I don't think I would have made it to closing without her calm demeanor. Thanks so much for the wonderful experience!

I have worked with many real estate agents over the past couple of decades. Jennifer ReId is in my opinion by far the best real estate agent we have ever had.  One of the things that I noticed right away was how well Jennifer listened to our needs and was able to show us homes that closely match what we were looking for. She was always available when ever we had questions or concerns. Jennifer's understanding of the real estate market and of real estate laws proved to be exceptional and very helpful in quite a few situations when we were putting offers in on houses.  Because we are in a sellers market we put in seven offers on homes. Jennifer never seemed to get frustrated or emotionally upset with all the houses that we did not get.  I found this to be a great quality as a buyer who had many emotional ups and downs throughout the process. Jennifer always remained positive and looking forward. I would recommend Jennifer in a heartbeat to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a home.  I have to say that quite often I felt like I was Jennifer’s only client even though we knew she had many because she gave such a great attention and time to our process until we finally found the home of our dreams with the seventh offer. Jennifer is the complete package when it comes to helping to sell or buy a home.

I would DEFINITELY recommend Jen to be your in-town real estate agent. I'm a fairly independent person so when it came to looking for a house I was inclined to go at it alone but I would not have my home, literally. Zillow is great at proactively sending emails about new homes but she was able to see my home before Zillow and booked the first viewing appointment and that was all the difference. She has all the patience in the world, answered all my questions, accommodated all of my search preferences, steered my where I needed steering and listened when I just needed to talk. Jen and Direct Link Realty also has relationships with inspectors, contractors, other real estate agents, and more that helped glide the process along. Whenever we needed someone to help with the process it was nice to be able to lean on the level of trust that she has with these vendors. I'm 100% certain that I'll reach out to her for any future work that needs to be done with the house. I'm incredibly happy with the house Jen helped me buy and made the whole process as painless as it could possibly be. Thanks again Jen!

This is the second time I have Richard as my agent. In both instances he showed knowledge, patients and professionalism. He made me do well on both purchases and showed exceptional patience and access.

We used Direct Link Realty to sell our condo in Decatur. Jennifer Reid came highly recommended to us and  from the very start she proved to be extremely efficient and willing to go above and beyond.  She was available to be at our home to show it to anyone interested in purchasing it.  We specifically asked that of her so that when prospective buyers came through our condo she could “sell” our home to them.  Our house had three families come through it just days after it was listed, and we received offers from all three!  They were all for the full asking price.  She was very knowledgeable in the market and set the price for our home right on target.  

As we were searching for a home to move into in a “sellers market” she was available to go out to look at whatever homes were available in our price range and area of Atlanta that we were looking in.  She really listened to what we were looking for and we met and talked over what we liked and didn’t like for each home.  As we were looking for an older ranch home, we knew we were going to need some remodeling and updating.  Direct Link has good connections with all necessary parties needed for inspections, remodeling, and warranties.

I will recommend Direct Link Realty to anyone looking to sell their home and/or find a new home to move to.  You need to find a realtor that is willing to give you all the attention that you need during this process.  After 7 offers on homes, all of them having multiple offers, we found the place to spend the rest of our lives thanks to Jennifer and Richard Reid’s hard work and dedication to this arduous task!

Richard is an outstanding real estate professional. He is knowledgeable about the real estate market and the process of home buying. He has numerous contacts in the industry to facilitate the selection and purchase processes. Richard is a skilled communicator and uses those skills in both listening to client needs as well as communicating those as needed during the negotiation process. We have purchased two properties through Richard and would highly recommend him to anyone seeking an expert.

Nancye F

What I particularly liked about Richard Reid was his knowledge of the area and of the specific buildings. Many questionable properties were immediately eliminated by Richard in favor of other, more reliable choices. Richard is very easy to work with and he responds to messages very quickly. I strongly recommend Richard to conduct any transaction. :)

Even though I was shopping for a condo from another state, I did not feel that the distance impeded my search because Juan stayed in close communication with me, suggested properties to fit my specifications, and viewed homes on my behalf. Often when he visited a property for me he also video  taped his walk-throughs which included objective comments and observations - I found these to be very helpful. During this process, I was able to narrow my search so that when I arrived, I was able to focus on those units that most closely suited my needs and interested me most. Juan was very patient, visiting units with me several times so that I could be confident in my decision. Thereafter, Juan handled the paperwork seamlessly, advised me during the negotiations (with which we were very pleased) expertly, and then closed my deal during my absence. Juan's valuable understanding of the real estate market in Atlanta was a main ingredient in the successful outcome of my search. Juan helped to make what is often a stressful time painless and even fun. Whether I am selling or buying, Juan is the one I would call.

Cindy & Phillip

She is the best! No words to describe my experience! She is like a sister. Always on your side.. Always available.. Always on duty! Professionally and humanly talented. I met hundreds of brokers in my life but she is standing out of crowd. Her brother Richard Reid, realtor, is the best as well. Talented family you can trust. Try them and you will never sorry about it.

I provide my very strongest recommendation possible for Richard and would use him again in a heartbeat if the need ever arose. He made the rather arduous process of buying and selling homes rather painless. On the buying side, Richard has extensive knowledge of neighborhoods in Decatur and surrounding metro Atlanta. He listens carefully to his clients' needs and does an remarkable job targeting properties that fulfill the required criteria. He also has great ideas on how to transform the exterior and interior of existing properties to maximize the buyer's enjoyment. He is diligent in checking e-mails and voicemails and returns queries in rapid fashion. On the selling side, Richard had great ideas on how to stage our property to maximize interest from potential buyers. He provided sage advice on handling and deciding among offers and was with us every step of the way through the convoluted closing process. He is truly fantastic. I can't recommend him enough.

Juan is extremely helpful in the home buying process. My wife and I were in the market for our first home, and wanted to work with someone whom we felt 100% comfortable with. During the entire process Juan was honest and up front about what to expect when looking for a home, and what to expect  after the purchase offer was accepted. Juan did an amazing job of understand the different wants and needs my wife and I had and blended them together to help find us properties that meet both our needs. Juan added valuable insight into the market area we were looking at as neither my wife nor I had lived in the area before, but we both knew it was a good central location with good schools. Ultimately, Juan's experience and insight into the market help my wife and I purchase our first home. Had it not been for Juan's ability to find properties that fit our respective needs, and within our budget, my wife and I might still be looking for a home. I highly recommend Juan to anyone in the market looking for a home. Juan has great experience and integrity, which are highly important to me, and why I would work with Juan again in the future.

Tony & Lorena

Excellent service, Juan helped us tremendously to achieve the home our dreams. At the beginning , We had some issues selling our house with a different company, we realize back then that the company we started just put the sign outside and the pictures on the website, but don't make any other extra  effort to sell your house. Juan did an extraordinary effort to sell our house on time. Excellent job, Juan

Richard Reid is an excellent realtor with a breadth of knowledge that is unmatched by anyone I have worked with in the past. His attention to detail and friendly pursuit of all areas to get a deal and satisfy his customer are outstanding. Even in areas where it is not necessary, Richard will go the extra mile and even fight the battles that some realtors leave to their clients to sort out later. I had not been in the housing market in quite a number of years and Richard made it seamless. He explained things that I had forgotten and illuminated areas that were new in the real estate business. I will recommend him to any and all I meet.

Alan H

Juan pays attention to detail and is valuable in determining what will sell your property, how to price it based on the market and what will move it quickly. Juan is also has a wealth of resources to get your property in the best condition to attract buyers.

Mark

I cannot wait to move into our new home! We could not have done this process without you! All of your help and patience really made the difference with our experience! We truly appreciate everything and are so thankful to have you as our realtor. I wish you nothing but the best as you close out 2016 and hope 2017 is the best one ever. Thank you and please stay in touch.

Michael & Laura Beth

I had never sold a house before, and I was wary of choosing a realtor. Richard Reid and Direct Link Realty proved to be the best possible choice I could have made. Not only did Richard calmly, graciously, and professionally answer my constant questions and concerns (sometimes more than once), but he also provided expert guidance as he navigated me through the process. Richard assured me from the beginning that he always would have my best interest at heart. Being a bit of a cynic, I was dubious of such claims, but I was very wrong. Richard guided me through the listing and sale of my house, but when a family emergency intervened right in the middle of the process, Richard (whom I had never met before interviewing realtors) did everything possible to take up the slack and help me finish things that went beyond the scope of his responsibilities. I am always a bit surprised to find people who do their job well, but it is truly exceptional to find someone who goes the extra mile for you, not once, but again and again. This review may sound like hype, but all I can says is, call Richard and talk with him. He actually does what he says he is going to do for you, and then some. You cannot do better than that.

Jennifer Reid started working with me as soon as I requested information on a home she listed. Coming from out of state Jennifer was on top of having all of the homes lined up for me to visit. She was knowledgeable about the area I wantes to live in and she was able to a need any of my questions. Another thing that I liked anout hiring Direct Realtor is that they provide contacts for various needs with your new home. Jennif always made sure she kept close communication with me and I knew she was always working with my best intentions and I ended up purchasing a beautiful home. I would highly recommend using Jennifer Reid for representing you when you decide to purchase your next home!!!

Richard has assisted my wife and I with 3 real estate transactions over the past 3 years in the Atlanta-Midtown area. He is detail oriented, highly responsive and extremely knowledgable. Most importantly, he offers candid advice with negotiating price and will stay by your side throughout closing day.

Matt W.

Richard is one of the most knowledgeable and helpful realtors I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. He knew exactly the price point to list my property at, and within 48 hours of listing I had multiple offers. I would definitely use him again and refer him to anyone I know looking for a realtor to use in the Atlanta area. 5 stars. A+++++++

Richard Reid made a daunting process most enjoyable and very successful. Over a period of many months (my husband and I came into town from the west coast on occasion and made some offers long distance and studied available potential homes on a daily basis via Internet searches and links from Richard), Mr. Reid and his staff served us with professionalism, personal and friendly attention, in depth knowledge and timely response to emails, texts, and phone calls. Since I had to handle the closing alone, Richard and his team patiently guided me through the process. Even after closing on our perfect home, Mr. Reid has been available to answer other questions about the the community and craftsmen. Without a moment's hesitation, I highly recommend Direct Link Realty with the Richard Reid team if you are searching for a condo, townhouse, or home.

Susan S

Richard was just amazing. I was a bit apprehensive about putting my house on the market but Richard guided me every step of the way. We listed and sold the house at the price we wanted in just over a month. Simply Amazing.

Jim P

Over the years, I've had experiences with several realtors, but Richard is by far the best. He always provided immediate responses and perfect insight and advice. I recommend him 100% and will definitely call on him when ready to buy our next home.

Juan was very attentive to our needs and did a great job finding the perfect home for my husband and I. He was very knowledgeable on the location of the house and was willing to meet us whenever was necessary. Our new home is exactly what we were looking to buy. Juan was also able to negotiate a  great deal for the property which helped us save a lot of money. Very recommendable.
