Greg and Pam, Sioux Falls– It is my pleasure to write this letter of recommendation for Ogdie Realty. When my wife Pam and I decided to sell our home we were unsure what to expect. I was very lucky to have a neighbor who entered the real estate business in 2000. Talking with Sam and Cathie Ogdie at the beginning of the process helped me to understand what people want when they purchase a home today. Sam and Cathie’s suggestions with regard to updating, painting, furnishing and staging our home properly proved to be most valuable when it came to maximizing the return on our investment. We were pleasantly surprised with how easy they made it to understand the process. My wife and I were still apprehensive though given the state of the market during the summer of 2010. The plan they developed for the sale of our house proved to be successful when we had a signed purchase agreement in our possession ten days after listing the property. Needless to say, we were overjoyed with a signed offer that was almost 98% of our asking price. Given the opportunity to sell another piece of residential real estate in Sioux Falls, I would enlist the services of Ogdie Realty and would recommend anyone else do the same.
Michael, Sioux Falls – Working with Ogdie Realty has been a great pleasure. Being new to the Sioux Falls area, there was a lot I didn’t know and much for me to consider, but Sam and Cathie made the process about as easy as purchasing a home can possibly be. As this was my first home, they helped me enormously to understand the process and make the right decisions. From the beginning I knew I was in good hands and that they were looking out for my best interest, and they’ve been extraordinarily helpful in getting me established in my new home in Sioux Falls. I really can’t imagine my search for and purchase of a home going any more smoothly, and there is no question that working with Ogdie Realty has been one of the biggest factors. They are trustworthy, genuine and friendly, and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending working with them.
Lezli K.- On a whim my husband and I went to an open house hosted by Cathie, she was very nice and was more than happy to show us the property and answer our questions. My husband and I had to take a couple of days to think about things(who buys the first place they see??). When we called for a second viewing I discussed with Cathie that we didn’t even have a realitor but in talking with her I had no worries to use her as well. Cathie was very professional and walked us step by step thru the process of buying our home, always there to answer questions and never once did I feel she wasn’t looking out for our best interest as well as the sellers. I would not hesitate to tell my family or friends about Ogdie Reality.
Greg K.- Ogdie Reality has excellent knowledge of the area housing market, and was willing to show/preview many homes in just a few hours. They understood my needs and worked with me in a very helpful and professional manner.
