CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

"It was always easy to reach Dick.  He was always professional, polite, and patient!  He was extremely patient!  I can really appreciate how he dealt with me and handled all the "outside" realtors and potential buyers.  I was never concerned that I was not being represented well.  And I loved how he stuck up for me when challenged by other realtors/buyers!  He is extremely trustworthy!" - Heather Steggall

"Professionalism, personality, and integrity are impressive.  Very knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.  Continual flow of updates made us comfortable from listing through closing." - Jim & Dianne Scrimger

"Dick is very professional, he listens to his clients and honestly works for their well-being.  He offered daily communication and always returned calls and emails within an hour.  He offered the best advice in several situations and we were always happy to have him on our team.
 “Dick took a bad selling situation and made it better somehow.  He was also very quick and mindful with listings that helped us find our new home.  At every step he had our backs and called builders and reps to make sure our side was covered.  A stand-up guy with a solid work ethic and a real care for his clients.”  -  Bill & Char Fromm

"It was a pleasure dealing with you and we want to thank you for all the work and going beyond what a normal real estate agent would do (you can believe me there - I have data on several interactions)." - Maddee Hegde

"Always available, 24/7, knowledgeable, professional, respectful, pleasant to work with.  If he didn't have the immediate answer, he researched and responded in a timely manner." - Scott & Angela Weaver

"Dick clearly understands the real estate market and is capable of offering alternatives to any challenge during the sales process.  Very thorough and professional." - Brian & Jennifer Weibel

"Of the three agents we interviewed, (Dick's) presentation was by far the most professional, spending precious little time on the "red tape" and much time listening to our needs and concerns.  Our house has many unique features and we were impressed with the scope of the research he did to get us to a realistic comp and with it a marketing strategy that was fair to us and yet competitive." - Julie & Glenn Lynch

"Thanks so much for your time and effort in helping sell the home.  It was a pleasure with you and your efforts were a big part of selling our house.  You really helped us through the uncertainty associated with such a big step in our lives.  Thanks for all you did to push the process along and give us and our home the attention we/it deserved." - Mark & Nada Mukhtar

"Thank goodness for Dick!  He always kept us informed and was always trying for a sale for us.  Living out of town, we depended on Dick and he went above and beyond our expectations as a real estate agent." - Carl & Sandra Pace

"Dick made me feel like I had a trusted friend throughout this transaction.  It was Dick Kangas that made it possible for the seller and I to write up a final purchase agreement." - Michael Lodewyk

"We sincerely appreciate your professional and friendly approach from beginning to sold.  Your frequent updates on the market provided useful information and you always followed through in a timely manner when we had questions or requested information.  Thanks for your honesty and efficient service." - Chris Martin

"From beginning to end, Dick helped us identify what we wanted in a home and showed us houses that fit that mold.  At our closing, he fought for us when the sellers were still not out of the home.  We did not have to do a thing!  This experience was great because of you and you were always very prompt when returning my calls." - Heather Steggall

"We would highly recommend Dick Kangas & CENTURY 21 as the most professional real estate marketers we have encountered." - David & Tawny Zaller

"...After closing I had a problem with the basement. ­Dick spent a lot of time helping with contractors and phone numbers even though the sale was complete. ­I appreciate the extra effort. ­Service from Dick was flawless." - Steve Deceunick

"At first we were reluctant to list with a REALTOR, but Mr. Kangas convinced us in a professional manner that he would follow through with all aspects of the sale, and he certainly did keep his promise. ­We certainly would not have a problem recommending Mr. Kangas to our friends or business associates... " - Fred & Gloria Quinn

"We were happy with the information, help & guidance throughout our search. ­We feel we found the right home for us." - Steve & Wendy Burns

"We were looking into moving to different counties. ­Dick not only sold our house efficiently, but searched two counties for comparisons to buy. ­Dick was always persistent in keeping (the listing) fresh on the market. ­We never felt he wasn't trying" - John & Alison Doane

"...We appreciate all that you have done in getting out house sold while we were in Colorado. ­You made the sale of our house so much easier when we did not have to come back to Detroit area for the closing." - Dennis & Jackie Rudko

"You warned us that you were thorough and we were pleasantly surprised that you kept your word. ­You went above & beyond your duty and it was an extreme pleasure to work with you." - Steve & Susan McClain

"Dick Kangas was very helpful and reassuring.  This was a major event in our lives, making a retirement relocation after living in Michigan 67 years.  We liked his manner." - Edwin & Elizabeth Budry

"... He spent a great deal of time explaining procedures to me.  He made sure that I understood and was comfortable with various concepts and situations.  He never behaved in a way that made me feel my inexperience was a bother to him.  He was completely professional at all times." - Tina Tippett

"Mr. Kangas was a pleasure to work with.  He is professional yet very friendly and approachable.  Through every step of the selling process (from the initial meeting and paperwork, through the sale of the home, to the closing) he always kept us well informed." - Kevin & Linda Burke
