RE: Dee Stone Lewis Realty Associates, Inc 320 N. New River Drive Surf City, NC "This is a letter of appreciation and recognition for Mrs. Dee Stone. Dee is a member of your firm (Lewis Realty Assoc. Inc.) and was our agent for the purchase of (address non-disclosed). We cannot tell you how pleased we were with our agent Dee. Dee represents your firm in a superior manner. She was extremely quick to turn around our requests for information or action. Her prompt answers were always bursting with detail. She continually maintained a positive attitude, always demonstrating genuine sincerity. Our interests became Dee's interests. What a breath of fresh air it was to deal with somebody who was not self- oriented, but instead was service oriented! She is also a tough as nails negotiator. Her negotiating skills enabled us to walk away with a fantastic price on our new home. We made an incredible offer that perhaps she would not have originally recommended; however, she adopted this incredible offer as her own and fought tenaciously and shrewdly to obtain it for us. When we closed, she personally made certain that everything and everyone was expertly coordinated so that closing would be a snap. During this time we were experiencing a big transition, having already left our old home in another state and trying to establish ourselves in a temporary home here in NC. In the midst of our relocation we were pressed for time and electronic access. She enthusiastically made the phone calls & s that we needed in order to coordinate inspections, warranties, title search, even details requested by our loan officer, among other details. Dee was simply an honest salesperson who loves her job and treats her customers accordingly. Our experience has been living proof of Dee's unyielding professionalism and electric enthusiasm. In closing, we just want you to know that Dee was just the perfect balanced professional. We appreciated so very much working with her to purchase our new home. We hope that she remains with your firm and continues to provide your future customers with similar experiences" - Dave & Nicole Hudspeth of Surf City, NC.
