Client Testimonials – Lake Wylie Realtor, Brian Wade


We hired Brian Wade to sell our home in Lake Wylie, SC.  We were cautious and realistic with our expectations regarding how long it might take to sell the house, considering it went on market the first week of November. We thought it would be difficult to sell our home with the holidays fast approaching, however, we found ourselves under contract in just five days. With Brian’s guidance, we were able to swiftly negotiate and accept an offer for exactly what we wanted.  Brian was a referral from close friends and neighbors, and he came highly recommended.  He provides his clients a total package. He has close connections to professional staging and photography services, and we are convinced that without their keen eye and Brian’s aggressive marketing of our home in the first few days live, we’d still be on the market today. Just a couple months after listing the home, we were closed and ready to move out of state. We highly recommend Brian.Jeff

Brian is a phenomenal agent, and one that I highly recommend.  I’d like to also add that Brian is extremely professional and patient.  When we were ready to make a move to the Fort Mill and Lake Wylie area, Brian was ready and willing to do everything possible to make things happen quickly, and it went as smoothly as can be.  His experience and guidance on several matters made us feel informed and aware to make the best decisions.  I was so pleased with his dedication that I would highly recommend him to anyone that might be looking to buy a home.Asem

Brian,  Brandon and I wanted to say thank you again SO much for all you did to make our first home buying experience so easy and exciting! We were nervous about it before we met you but from the first time we met we felt so at ease. We really appreciate your fast responses to all our questions and always being prepared and helpful. It made the process less scary, and even though we know you do it everday and have multiple clients we always felt like you cared about what was going on with our stage in the process.  Thank you so much again, we will be sure to recommend you to anyone else looking for a home in the area! Sincerely – Katie & Brandon

Hands down the best Realtor.  Brian bent over backwards to help us, even when we were extremely emotional. One minute we would want a house, the next minute we wouldn’t.  He never pushed us and was patient.  I really felt like he wanted the best for us. We love our Fort Mill home! Becky & Dustin

Brian, thanks so much for all that you did for the sale of our house in Gastonia and the purchase of our new Rock Hill home! Even though we had some tough moments, you got us through and were always willing to answer thousands of panicked questions and reassure us that things were moving along. You did the work for not only us, but if there was a problem on our buyer’s end, you handled that too! Best Agent Ever! We will highly recommend you to anyone with real estate needs. Thanks again!Paul & Jennifer

We have been so fortunate to work with Brian on three different transactions. We met Brian in 2008 and found him to be tactful, patient, and prompt with every question or concern.  He handled our wish list with care and helped us find our home quickly.  I’d even go as far as to say he has mastered the art of listening to his clients. The purchase of that home went very smoothly!  And to this day that home is very special to us!

Fast forward, 2013!  We found our dream home in Fort Mill this summer with Brian.  During the process, we always felt confident and informed.  Buying and or selling a home can be very stressful, but Brian was always level headed, fully present, and positive.  We were able to close on our home and enroll our kindergartner in the school we wanted just days away from the first day of school.  Being able to do that came from Brian scheduling and corresponding with everyone involved quickly and effectively.  He did an amazing job and we are grateful.

Finally, we are still working with Brian on the sale of our previous home in Berewick.  His analysis of the market and the neighborhood pricing has been accurate.  He was honest and upfront from the beginning.  His wife, Beth, did a beautiful job with her photography. We are so pleased on how it is being marketed.

Many thanks to Brian for everything he has done and continues to do for us!  We are so glad we chose him and he has been a part of all our decisions in the home buying/selling process…..the craziness, the fun, and the finish line. We can’t thank him enough! Mike & Karen

Letter to Keller Williams Realty Broker in Charge (BIC) and Sales Leader:

We are writing this letter to convey how pleased we are with Brian’s performance throughout the sale of our Lake Wylie home and purchase of our new home in Fort Mill.  From the beginning, Brian made us feel comfortable with the process, answered every question we had, always treated us with respect and as if we were the most important clients he had.  Brian was very thorough every step of the way and always communicated clearly and quickly, following up on even the little details and questions we had.  When we had some bumps along the way, Brian helped us navigate through these road blocks.  We are so comfortable working with Brian that we have already been recommending his services to friends and colleagues and while we hope we don’t need to move again for a long time, we will be certain to utilize Brian as our Realtor when that time comes. Ben & Lisa

The experience we had with Brian was a breath of fresh air.  In this market to have a listing agent “work” with a seller instead of just listing a home and hoping things will happen is great.  Brian provided sound information and suggestions as to how to navigate the market.  Once a contract had been presented Brian again “worked” with us to ensure we had the best possible price for our home.  Brian continued to be our advocate in working with the Buyers’ agent and not settling for delays that were slowing down the transaction.  He took the time to proactively interact with the Buyers’ agent and lender on our behalf to get the deal done, always with our (Sellers’) best interest in mind.  Brian saw our transaction through to the end and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to sell their home in the future. Thank you Brian for your help selling our home in this difficult market.  Patrick & Jen

Brian, thank you again for your donation to our 5K for children’s charity. It was a great success. We raised over $3,000 for Lake Wylie Children’s Charity which put them over the $50,000 mark for the family! They were very excited! We hope to be able to do it again, even bigger, next year! Thank you – Lake Wylie Anytime Fitness

Brian, we are finally starting to get settled, although we still have a long way to go! We wanted to thank you for EVERYTHING you did throughout our building in Baxter Village. Your willingness to do whatever needed to be done and advocate for us was quite impressive. You truly went beyond our expectations and we were so impressed. Every step was made easier by you, and that’s greatly appreciated. We would recommend you or use you again in a second – although we aren’t planning on doing this for a long time! Tim & Sarah

Thanks for making our home purchase easy and stress-free.  You made yourself available at a moment’s notice and always had our best interest in mind.  It was a big purchase for us and you helped us get a fair deal.  I will recommend you to my friends every chance I get.  Thanks again!Lee & Bea

Thank you for guiding us through the process of buying our first home. You were incredibly responsive, knowledgeable and really walked us through all the ins and outs of making the purchase a reality. From the beginning, we felt like we were in extremely good hands, and we were right. Having such a thorough advocate on our side made every step of the way easier. Waiting to hear whether our offer got accepted was nerve-racking, but you were always in touch and kept us updated. Through the inspection and closing, we always felt like we could get a hold of you with our many questions. Even when it looked like we might hit a snag in the sale, your calm attitude helped us make the right moves to get peace of mind and reassure us that we were making a great purchase. We love our new home, and we’d definitely recommend you to anyone looking to buy a house in the Charlotte area. Thanks again!Charlie & Kathryn

If anyone is in need of a trustworthy, pro-active and hard working real estate agent I would highly recommend Brian. We just finished selling our Berewick home with him and he did an outstanding job from the first meeting and continues to be available to us post closing. Brian you did an amazing job, we will be blasting your name wherever we can. David & Amy

What a great experience working with Brian to find my home in the Charlotte area. He is a great listener to really get to know his customer. He found many homes that fit the bill and was able to narrow the search down quickly to find the perfect location for me. His professionalism, efficiency and timeliness in getting back with me were of the highest caliber. Despite his busy schedule, I always felt like I was the only client he had given his timely personal attention to everything. All the paperwork is efficiently delivered to email. He had excellent referrals for inspectors and lawyers given I am new to the area. Now I am happily working on my new home to make it mine. Thank you Brian.  You have my highest recommendation!Mary

We used Brian Wade as our Realtor when we purchased a home in Lake Wylie.  Below I highlight some of Brian’s attributes that made our search efficient and successful: 

1) Overall behavior – Brian is not a forceful, ‘in-your-face’ type of Realtor. Brian helped us determine our ‘needs and wants’ and limited our visits to properties that met our requirements. We felt that our opinion was important to him. When we asked for Brian’s opinion, he would tell us his thoughts, without closing the door on our opinion. He made himself readily available throughout the process.

2) Market evaluation – Brian understood the dynamics of the Real Estate market and how it was impacting different neighborhoods. He suggested we look at what ultimately became our home, even though it appeared to be out of our price range. He explained that based on current sales, the property most likely would go for much less than asking price. He showed us comparable sales and explained that long term, the neighborhood would appreciate more than another community we were considering. Based on his counsel, we submitted a bid in our price range and with one counter bid the house was ours and within budget.

3) Assistance prior to closing – We were living out of state, so coordination and familiarization with local contacts was very important to us. Brian recommended attorneys and home inspectors who were first class. He also provided all required contacts for utilities and assisted in scheduling access to the house prior to closing. Brian assisted with discussions and communications with our mortgage company to clarify line items in the sales contract. When I gave the attorney the sales contract, he asked me if Brian had reviewed it. When I told him that he had, the attorney said he would not have to review it because, “Brian knows what he’s doing.” I would recommend Brian Wade for anyone looking to purchase real estate.Gary & Sheila

 Brian helped us purchase our first home in Charlotte.  His professionalism and eagerness to help were way above par! He constantly went out of his way to help us with all of the small details that a first time buyer would be unaware of. He definitely puts his clients first and did such a great job for us. We would recommend him for any buyer at any stage. Wonderful agent to work with, it was a pleasure!Miles & Jenn

Brian was extremely helpful in assisting my wife and I in finding and purchasing our house in River Hills. He was very knowledgeable of the area neighborhoods, schools, and community. Brian asked questions and was able to show us houses that fit our requirements. Once the house was chosen, Brian was very efficient in moving contract and pre-closing activities along so there was no delay in the closing. I would highly recommend Brian and will use him again in my next real estate transaction.Keith & Jennifer

Our home buying experience was a little rocky to say the least.  This was 100% done to the builder’s inability to communicate with us in a timely manner, and take care of issues that come up along the way.  That being said, Brian was the one thing we could count on, and rely on, during this process.  Brian was readily available day or night, and on weekends, and he did an awesome job keeping us in the loop along the way.  Brian answered any questions we had, or quickly got an answer if it was something he didn’t know.  Above all this Brian stepped up to the plate and helped get us a concession the builder would not provide after part of the contract was changed to the builder’s favor.  We highly recommend Brian to any potential home-buyers and know your experience with him will be as positive as ours was.Jeremiah & Jill

Your real estate expertise provided us with the guidance we needed.  By helping us to establish a realistic sales price for our home, we were able to maintain consistent Buyer traffic and ultimately our home went under contract in a time frame well ahead of the market average.  Your help in finding our next home was equally superb.  The 6 month house search journey with us truly helped us to locate the house that we absolutely fell in love with.  That time we spent searching for homes provided us with the opportunity to really understand the purchase market.  To discern where we wanted to buy, and to decide what type of home we wanted to purchase.  We ultimately, with your help, purchased the home that we love, at a great price given the market conditions. 

Your insights were invaluable in helping us to not only find the correct house for us, but to also to walk away from those homes that weren’t the best buy for us for one reason or another.  Your meticulous follow through with the entire sell/buy process was critical to our being able to close on our sell property and buy property as a back to back transaction.  Because of this, we did not need to secure storage or temporary housing.  As you recall, these were important things for us as we did not want to have the move twice. 

We could not have accomplished this complex real estate transaction, particularly in this turbulent market, without your expertise, attention to detail, diplomatic demeanor, and thorough follow through…to the very end!  Thank you so much for your help!  You’ve earned our highest recommendation!  We would not hesitate to call on you for our future real estate needs or to recommend your services to anybody we know in need of quality real estate representation. – Jim & Ruthann

Open letter to anyone considering Brian Wade as their Realtor: We have bought and sold 3 homes and had never met Brian prior to moving to Fort Mill.  Buying our house with Brian was the easiest transaction by far – and we were working across the table from a horrible Seller’s agent.  In the end, our house appraised at 15% higher than final sales price, so it’s easy to say he does a great job of negotiating under tough circumstances.  Brian is easy to work with and treats you like a person.  He gets to know you and exactly what you need and want in a home. Brian showed us a variety of homes and was extremely knowledgeable of each community from Waxhaw to Lake Wylie.  Brian did a great job of communicating with us and always came through with great suggestions or solutions for potential problems.Tut & Amy

 Your advice throughout the purchase of our Lake Wylie home was helpful and timely.  You were diligent and paid careful attention to detail.  We will refer you to any of our family or friends.  We think you were a good fit for us and we appreciated working with you.Jeff & Laura

Brian was our Realtor when we decided to sell our Southpark and Berewick properties. From the very first day, we learned he was very professional, took his work seriously and wanted to help us with our needs. I would recommend Brian because, not only he is a nice guy but he knows his job and would help anyone with either buying or selling a property. He makes good judgements, he is trustworthy and puts the customer ahead of himself. No one needs to tell me that he is a Five Star Realtor because it is evident when you meet him. – Peter & Bianca

My wife and I were very impressed with your straightforward communications during the sale of our Berewick home.  Your consistent market updates and advice helped us stay on track in a tough housing climate.  We certainly asked a lot of questions and he provided the knowledge and advice we needed.  Throughout the process we truly felt we were working with someone who cared about our interests.  We will recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell a home around the Charlotte area.  When the time comes for us to sell or buy another home, we will call you. – Jeremy & Leah

Just wanted to say “Thank You” very much for all what you’ve done for me.  The house is awesome.  I could have never done it without you.  You’ve been such a great help and no matter what I say, it won’t be enough to express how grateful I am to have such a wonderful realtor, and most of all a great friend who’s not going to save any efforts or time to go out of his way to help.  Thank you again.  I will think of you every time I come across any real estate matters, whether it’s for me or for a friend.  You’re #1 in my book…whether it’s for future business consultation or just for an opinion of a great friend.Mourgan

Brian, thank you so much for all of your hard work and dedication. I know how ridiculously frustrating this whole process has been for you and I appreciate that you did not walk away from me and give up. Thank you for your professionalism and kindness through a difficult stage in my life. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel!! Nancy, Lake Wylie short sale

You went out of your way so many times for us we just can’t say enough good things about you.  For example, do you remember the time we had a flood in the living room ceiling?  You came right over and helped us out by taking down the smoke detector and then working with M.I. Homes to get the ceiling repaired properly and fast.  Your diligence paid off for all of us…if I were to ever sell a house in your area again you would definitely be our first choice in Charlotte Realtors.  You have become a good friend of ours and one we will keep in touch with.Les & Kathy
