Dear Artie,
23We can’t tell you how much your services meant to us. Your professionalism and knowledge of the market far exceeds any realty service in the area. You knew what we wanted and helped us find it.We had been searching for a home for over a year with other realtors. You were the only one who actually cared what we were going to buy and what the value versus the price of the home actually meant. Other realtors would take us to homes
they thought would fit in our financial plan and pressure us to make a bid. You always advised us on any structural problems, permit problems or traffic noise problems that may occur. We can’t imagine what we would have gotten ‘stuck with’ had you not been at our side. We actually had equity in our home from the moment we bought it.The first home we bought was with an exclusive Buyer’s Agent in another part of the country. We were so happy to see “Realty Consultants” here in Eugene. Other realtors may say they are buyer’s agents but speaking from experience, they do not work for the buyers. Not only did you save us thousands of dollars, you gave us the peace of mind that comes with knowing the house we bought was a sound investment. We love our new home and constantly recommend your services to people. Thanks for everything you’ve done.

Sincerely,
Louis and Pamela Foreman


Dear Artie,
24Now that the papers have been signed and the dust has settled, we want you to know how much we appreciate all your help in finding and buying our house in Eugene. We have survived the purchase of two houses prior to this one, but this is the first time we have had the satisfaction, the protection, even the pleasure of dealing with an agent working entirely for us, with no conflict of
interest. We could proceed with confidence, during every step: from the excellent, complete, unlimited market surveys, thorough inspections of several possibilities, negotiations, house inspection, and final wrap-up, knowing that you were on our side, looking out for our needs and concerns. You clearly understood our requirements and time restraints. Your expertise in both real estate and legal matters was invaluable, you gave us excellent advice and guidance throughout all stages of the process, and now we have bought a home that meets our needs, at a fair price. Thank you for shepherding us through the buyer’s snake pit with wisdom and humor. We’d recommend you to anyone facing the daunting prospect of finding and buying a house in Eugene (or anywhere).

Sincerely yours,
Mark and Mary Mantuani


Dear Artie,

22Well, now this is the second property we have purchased through you. We’re thankful that you worked with us again, after we visited nearly 50 homes before our first purchase! We can’t imagine that there are many other agents who would have pulled us out of some of the properties we wanted to buy out of desperation. But you were right, patience paid off. Finally, at age 63 we have the home(s) of our dreams. We bless the day we found your website and would recommend you to our children.

Sincerely,
Joe Ross and Celeste Kuta


Dear Artie,

25I apologize for my delay in getting this to you. Dan and I would like to thank you for the fantastic job you did for us. As first time homebuyers, we were nervous about making such a large purchase. You did a wonderful job representing our best interest and making us feel at ease. I am looking forward to recommending you to our friends or anyone looking to purchase a home. We couldn’t be happier in our new home and have you to thank for helping us get here. Thank you again for all your hard work!

Sincerely,
Dan and Donna Stalie


27… Throughout the process, Artie proved again and again that he was willing to negotiate in our interest, all the while being careful to ask us what we wanted out of the transaction. … Artie gave us good advice when he felt we need to walk away from the bargaining table and when we needed to be hard nosed. We would heartily recommend Artie to anyone who is thinking of buying a new home. His experience in the practice of law, in the building of homes and his time in the real estate industry all give him a great perspective.

29… We were not just delighted, we were astonished. What he saved us was triple his commission. We had total confidence in his service. We would never buy a house any other way.
