I met Allan Minter in 2008 when he was helping my business partner's brother-in-law find a home. In 2010, when we decided to begin purchasing, renovating, and re-selling properties, we chose Allan to be our realtor and have never regretted the decision. At the beginning of our investment activities, Allan met with us to discuss investment criteria and target neighborhoods. He's proven to be a wealth of knowledge with respect to neighborhoods and values. The first property we bought was the result of Allan calling us almost the instant it went on the market. By the time we met to sign offer documents, he had already had several discussions with the listing agent. By being proactive with the listing agent, he enabled us to lock up the property before other investors. On another occasion, he steered us to a neighborhood that we didn't know. However, he was able to answer all the questions we had concerning the neighborhood's dynamics, values, history, and potential. We actually bought the property based on his knowledge.
We also ask him for advice before starting renovations. He's helped us choose cabinet finishes, paint colors, elevation changes, and floor plan adjustments.
We've sold three properties through him. He has gotten us to the closing table with these sales by creating and negotiating win-win situations when snags arise. In one sales transaction the buyer wanted a feature that we didn't necessarily want to add. Allan showed us the merit of adding the feature, but he also helped the buyer become comfortable with allowing us to add it after closing.
Allan comes with superb resources. Having been in the business full time for many years, he has been able to direct us to key resources, such as staging professionals, private investors, and inspectors.
He gives us honest feedback. He has high ethics and integrity. Most of all, he's proven to have our best interest at heart. We place a lot of trust in Allan Minter, and he has never let us down.your guy.
