A Selection of Some of the Best Reviews/Recommendations Left for Me

"Adam is a remarkable buyers agent. We were moving across the country to an area we had no practical knowledge of. He was tireless in his quest to find us a quality home; researching many listings, sending us video walk throughs and providing actionable expert opinions on the suitability of the numerous possible houses. After months of his work and countless calls, texts, emails he guided us through negotiations, inspections and repairs prior to our cross country drive cumulating in a Saturday walk through and closing at the house with a mobile notary. This was not an easy endeavor for all but his strong work ethic, integrity, and selflessness saved us so much hassle allowing us to take possession and move in on the day we arrived. We are so thankful to have met Adam." - Paul - Zillow

"Adam is the best real estate agent we could have asked for. This was our first home purchase, and we looked at a lot of houses and made several offers. Adam has the experience and the integrity to offer solid advice on the market and the particulars of every property we toured. You can tell that a real estate agent is honest when they talk you out of making an offer on a house that would have likely caused a lot of problems for us down the road. We just closed on a home that we love, and we have already started recommending him to everyone we can." Frank - Google Maps

"Honestly, while I may be a first time home buyer I really feel I had someone reliable and trustworthy on my side. I never felt incompitent although my knowledge and experiance was low to none. I never felt unnecessary stress as I knew I had a great source of knowledge availble to me by the name of Adam Garrett. I had an amazing realtor, teacher, advocate and guide through the whole process and never felt alone." Emily - survey

"Adam is a person with a hart of gold a man of God this man went out his way to help me when I was buying a home I didn't know anything about getting a home he did things for me any other realtor would have never done I have so much respect for him he change my life and I just want to say thank u again I wish there was more people in this world like him u made my dream come true I like him as a person and proud to have him as a friend"  Thurman - Facebook

"Adam was superb! Even with a crazy seller's market he knew exactly how to win a bid with our proposal. This was only our second proposal on a multi bid deal. Our first proposal, we came to second To a close first. Our Second proposal, Adam sealed the deal. He was detailed oriented in our proposal and in every aspect of The sale process. He literally made the impossible possible in what was a difficult sell process. He was always quick and responsive with us and diplomatic and courteous with the seller side even when there were great challenges. This was our first home buying experience and I highly recommend Adam. He went over and beyond to shows us homes and clear his schedule. He was informative and he does his job with integrity and great passion. As a third generation realtor, his knowledge base and experience is beyond his years. We were very pleased. We couldn't imagine working with any other realtor." Lauren - Facebook

"ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! 
I’m a first time home buyer and Adam basically got me through this entire experience by himself. There was very little I had to research on my own that he didn’t just provide through his own hard work and patience.
Here are some traits he exhibits.
- extremely knowledgeable 
- well prepared 
- timely/punctual (he will respond in the middle of the night sometimes! Which saved me a few times) 
- flexible (whatever your living or travel situation, he will make it work)
10/10, would recommend" Connor - Facebook 

"Adam Garrett is an awesome guy who genuinely cares about the people he helps and will always do the right thing. My wife and I talked to him first when we were buying our first home together but we were way outside of his area and he was able to provide us with a quality referral instead. He kept in touch with us though and did some research for us and gave us professional advice throughout our home buying process and didn't ask for anything in return. If you're working with Adam you can definitely be confident you're working with a great realtor who will put your interests first!" Micah - Facebook

"Adam Garrett is definitely THE most friendly, knowledgeable, and driven realtor in the Hampton Roads!! He will absolutely go above and beyond to find or sell your house. I had multitudes of questions—questions about taxes, escalating clauses, siding, anything under the sun. Everything you do *not* know, he has a spreadsheet for that! And always makes himself available for phone calls as soon as he is able. If you’re a buyer, He will take into account your preferences for schools, safety, home layout, neighborhood preference, and more. He found us our home despite my husband and I being overseas in Korea. And after we found our house he was always extremely responsive to any questions I had about the house - and would keep working at it until an issue was resolved. Just today, 5 months after we bought our house the heating and gas fireplace weren’t turning on; I notified Adam and he came over right away - with space heaters for us to borrow, warm clothes, and blankets !! And got the fireplace and Gas furnace/heater working! He didn’t have to do any of that- and it was all better treatment than what even a paid property manager would deliver ! Thanks again, Adam!"

"Adam was incredibly knowledgeable, dedicated and professional in every aspect of my homebuying process. Homebuying can be stressful, and I am a first timer, but Adam helped me to understand the ins-and-outs of the entire process and was always available when I had a question that needed answering or if I needed guidance with a decision. His communication and guidance was invaluable and I don't think I would have had as great of an experience as I did had I gone with another realtor. He truly went above and beyond in every respect, and I would highly recommend Adam to anyone buying or selling a home!" Kayla - Google Maps

"Excellent experience in everything. This puchase will help me to save a lot of money. We feel like you're not just our Realtor, but our friend. I'm sure for next transaction that I will contact you directly. I will recommend you to friends and family." John - Google Maps

My Values & Some Quotes from Reviews that Demonstrate those Values

 

I value availability & work around my clients' time frames (1). I also value a strong work ethic (2), and saving my clients as much time and money as possible (3), whether buying or selling. I seek to get sellers a premium on their home while finding great buys for buyers. I will fight for my clients' best interests (4). I believe that an informed buyer or seller makes the best decisions, and am dedicated to that end, as a brief review of my website as well as my reviews should demonstrate (5). As a former youth minister of over 4 years, ethics, including but not limited to integrity, are very important to me (6). As someone with the lowest average rating by clients on any real estate website being a 4.8/5, that scored in the top two percentile in math on the SAT's, and attended "The Harvard of Christian Schools" (Wheaton College) with a small academic scholarship, excellence is a top priority for me (7).
