The St Germain Group Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

The St.

Germain Team worked hard to help me find our home! They were so patient with me and the many things I asked for in a house. We probably looked at hundreds until we found the beautiful home we’re in now! I always recommend the St. Germain Group to anyone looking for a home or to even see their options. I love this group and hope to do business with them again when it comes time to upgrade homes and sell my home!

From the first text I sent, I received a immediate call back from Sheila even though it was after 6:00 pm.

I didn’t expect a call back until the next day. She was always flexible with my work schedule. From the showing of the house to the purchase of my house she was always in constant contact with me. Made buying a home stress free. I believe she truly cares about her clients and she works diligently for them and the seller. And anytime I come in contact with someone wanting to buy a home I send them her way. Thanks again, Teresa

We worked with Tina for months viewing various properties on Lake Tillery.

As we lived out-of-town, Tina was always ready to show us listings of interest though virtual visits and was always able to secure showings when we could visit the area. Additionally, Tina helped us with appropriate offers and guidance through the purchase process. Tina would periodically send us emails with new listings on Lake Tillery that she thought would be of interest. Ultimately, with Tina's assistance, we were able to become home owners on Lake Tillery with a new address in Norwood, NC. Thanks again Tina and Darin!!

Sheila goes out of her way to do whatever needs to be done to make everything run smoothly.

I asked three different realtors to show me a house. Sheila is the only one who would give me her time. I ended up buying the house and Sheila made it all so easy. She is a wonderful, kind and professional person. You can't go wrong with her.

Candi made purchasing my first home a breeze!

Everyone at this agency is so nice and honest through the entire process. My fiancé discovered Candi through a Facebook post and she helped us look at several homes before we decided on our first home. She answered any questions I had even if it wasn’t during her office hours! Michael was also so helpful with explaining details about every home we saw alongside Candi, he brought a positive attitude anytime I was unsure about a home and was able to offer advice on the home buying process. Buying a home is stressful but Candi and her Team made the experience much more fluid! I can’t recommend The St. Germain Group enough because me and my fiancé are truly happy in our first home!

Bill Staiano

Allison and Sheila are the most professional and helpful realtors we have ever worked with.

They were patient, understanding, and very communicative from our first interaction. We relocated from NY and although timelines do not align state to state, they provided very helpful recommendations to provide our NY team in order to accommodate both parties. They remained patient even in the most frustrating situations that we came across and worked diligently to help us to meet our deadlines. I will certainly recommend them to any and everybody looking to buy and sell and am so grateful for their team!

John Cardona

On a scale of 1-10, Kate Shields is an 11!

!! While thinking we absolutely knew what we were looking for, she patiently, tirelessly, and cheerfully led our home search for several weeks through many homes because we really didn't know what we were looking for until we found it! She never pushed us, but allowed us the time we needed in order to figure things out and she responded quickly to every question we had or house we wanted to see. She is extremely knowledgeable about the market, the home buying process, and was able to help us evaluate the worth of the homes based on condition, location, pricing, etc. She continually looked for things that we need to be aware of like cracks in walls, foundation or structural issues, and extra moisture that could cause problems down the road. Kate has a great sense of humor but does not take her job lightly. She understands buying a house is a big deal for her clients and kept telling us she only wanted for us to be in the right place at the end. We are now in the home of our dreams and once we found our prefect house and property, we closed in 3 weeks without a hitch! Kate is now in the process of helping our adult son purchase his very first house. She is the absolute best and after all the time we spent with her, she feels like one of the family!

Tammy OKeefe

Team St.

Germain is amazing, they helped us every step of the way, and kept us up to date with everything that was going on. I loved the process and will definitely use them in the future :)

Brittany Blalock

My husband and I highly recommend Tina Almond.

She was always available when we needed her to show us a home and very encouraging when it didn't work out. I know Tina went above what she needed to do in helping us find the right home and she will help you too!

Mary Webster

Very happy with our experience.

Kate Shields stayed in contact the entire time and provided valuable knowledge to guide us through the process. Five stars!

Brian Bowman

Colleen LaRock went above and beyond to try and find us a house.

We worked with many realtors in 7 states trying to find our dream home, Colleen worked harder and more thoughtful to our needs than all of them. Colleen treated us as if we were part of her family looking for a home. We unfortunately did not find a home in her state and did not get to finish our purchase with her but I felt compelled to let anyone know if you are looking in her area of North Carolina you will not find a better agent.

Kami Lynn

Sheila is very helpful and explains the steps to list and sell home.

I would definitely use her again.

Carole Bennett

We were moving from Washington state and wanted to have a home of our own before we came to NC.

Candi was so helpful and stayed in contact every step of the way. From the first remote showing to helping us set up an appraisal and inspection, She went above and beyond to make our move to NC as easy as possible. I will always be grateful for her help and patience during the (sometimes stressful) process of getting our home.

Nichole Fry

Sheila made buying our first home easy.

She was always available to answer any questions we had, and wouldn't give up until we found a lender that would work. We'll definitely use her again if we decide to buy or sell in the future!

As a first time home buyer, I valued Kates knowledge of the industry and consistent availability and willingness to show houses.

She is easy and fun to work with, answered every question I had, and helped me get into a better house than I thought I could afford. Even after the deal was done she has stayed in touch to see how things are going. I have already recommended her to family and friends and will never call anyone else for my real estate needs.

Kate Shields is an exceptional realtor!

She tirelessly worked for us through a cancelled contract, showings and finally the closing of a dream home that she found. She explained each real estate nuance we encounterd clearly and differently to each of us. Her negotiating skill level rank: super power. The knowledge and professionals that she brought to our experience secured our situation, eased our mind and smoothed our journey. She just might be the hardest working realtor I have ever met.

LaurieAnn

Kate Shields was my real estate agent, she helped me through 3 potential homes, deals that either fell through due to condition of the house on inspection, or, as in this case, a successful buy for me on a house that had multiple offers.

She was always available, responded promptly, and never gave up despite 2 of previous deals that never materialized .

Sarah Sableski

I found Janet on Zillow.

Janet is amazingly helpful. When we wanted to see a home, Janet made it work. We traveled from SC to see homes and Janet was accommodating. We were are very blessed to have had her as our realtor and now friend.

kimberly sasser

I read that most people go with the first real estate agent they hear from; but I’m here to tell you that going with the BEST will be one of the best decisions you’ve ever made.

Do yourself a favor and contact Kate Shields, and it will be one of the best decisions you ever make. Being able to trust Kate to effectively coordinate between selling agents, sellers, eventually lawyers and loan companies, and our own crazy schedule took off so much time, effort and stress out of the situation. She made it possible for us. When my wife and I started looking for our first house, honestly I was a bit overwhelmed and wasn’t sure where to start. I had heard that going with a real estate agent could be helpful, so I began looking for an agent. We narrowed down a short-list based on good reviews, and ended up getting a personal recommendation from someone on one person on that list too, so we went with her - Kate. From the very first time we spoke with her, Kate was not only obviously accommodating and savvy, but had such a magnetic and bubbly personality that it already made things smoother. She explained her typical process with turn-around times, grading systems on viewings we saw, and what to expect with the home-buying process from-beginning-to-end. Having someone walk my wife and me through all these nuances in such a transparent and sophisticated way showed me we made the right choice with Kate. Before every meeting we had, Kate would have an itinerary of showings, and already have the logistics planned out after shooting over places we would like; every time, Kate reinforced her ability to maintain organization and drive-forward while making sure to keep our interests in mind. She was on-it and continued to line up houses for us to see whenever we could. Then with any house, Kate would point out aspects of homes that we should look out for (like foundational cracks, water damage, or other longer-term defects), as well as aspects that added a lot of value to the home too. Even when doing this, I never got the feeling that I was being pushed in any direction, and never felt like she was trying to just go for a quick payday – rather, it was the exact opposite: every effort was always aimed at making sure everything was 100% what we wanted and that we were fully comfortable. She is so good that she got in tune with what we were looking for, and oftentimes we wouldn’t need to say much and she would already know what we were leaning-toward with a home. We had considered a lot of houses, but since the market was absolutely insane, we weren’t able to find the right one very quickly. However, once we did find the house we 100% knew we wanted, I could immediately see a shift in Kate and she turned on the ‘negotiation mode’, and she certainly did negotiate. I won’t get into the numbers, but she saved us a whole lot of time and money with her negotiations. We just gave her our overall numbers and sat back to watch the show, and ended up saving a lot of money. Our offer was accepted, but her help didn’t stop there. Kate even helped us through the legal process as well. We all went to the lawyers’ office to sign the closing docs; when we were there, the real estate lawyers themselves said they hadn’t ever seen a real estate agent that was so knowledgeable in real estate laws. She’s helped us literally every step of the way, and even attended our son’s baby shower as one of our great friends. So even beyond her astounding professionalism and ability to organize & drive-forward in an accommodating way, she’s now one of our great friends. Again I say, do yourself a favor and go with Kate as your agent – it’ll truly be one of the best decisions you ever make.

Niki Stevenson

This Realty company is great to work with.

My wife and I are small time investors that was looking for a little guidance on a flip. Sheila had plenty of references for us to use and helped us out from start to finish. I would highly recommend this company for anyone looking to buy or sell any type of property.

Michael and Shelia made my first time home buying experience the best.

I had recently relocated from across the country to NC with very little support system and family. Buying a home at a young age was very intimidating but they walked me through every step of the way. They went above and beyond to make sure I found the perfect home and answered any questions I had. They worked very well with my budget and made sure my home was in a nice area and had everything I needed. I am thankful for the experience and if I ever need to sell my home or buy in the future I know exactly who I want to work with. Thank you Michael and Sheila.

Sheila and Michael helped me buy and sell my home.
