I would highly recommend Ivan!!! Recently I obtained a new job that required relocation to the Raleigh/Durham area. I located another realtor who agreed to establish several appointments while I was in the area over a two day period. The realtor did not follow through and I was left to figure out my options in my own. While visiting a development I was given Ivan’s information. Needless to say, an interstate move is stressful. Ivan met with me and discussed my options. He was responsive and professional. Within a few hours we had narrowed my search and I was able to find the perfect location during my two day visit. Ivan is amazing!!!
Ivan's support and guidance was greatly appreciated while I was buying my first home!
