Mr. Drake handled each and every question, request and need; sometimes before I could finish the sentence...all while I was a thousand miles away (literally). I can’t imagine having gone through my move and buying experience with any other agent, period. I was in the market for a home that I could potentially turn into a rental property in a few years...a fixer-upper with more aesthetic projects than major issues, in a nice neighborhood, but not the best, two bedrooms, but not three, etc. My needs were specific. Having been out of state for the past decade, Shane's knowledge of the real estate lay-of-the-land paid off, and he produced a list of properties the met my list of needs, and within a few days I made my initial offer (on a house that I ended up purchasing). I was selling my first home in Florida and moving back up to Ohio, and Shane helped me navigate the tight timelines and was key in maintaining my sanity and stress levels throughout the entire experience. If only he was licensed for Florida and could have helped me on that end as well! I know quite a bit about a lot of things, but real estate isn't one of them. Shane was able to break down the entire process for me and put it in layman's terms...and he never made me feel like an idiot for asking a stupid question. (And I asked many.) All of that, and you just realize that he's really a genuinely good guy...he certainly wasn't just in it for the commission from my modest purchase. He genuinely cared and made sure to match me with the right property for me. I have and will continue to refer any and everybody looking to make a sale or purchase in the area to Mr. Drake. If you aren’t fortunate enough to have crossed paths with Shane, personally or professionally, do yourself a favor and give him a ring. He’s the only “Real Estate Guy” you’ll need!
He is very knowledgeable about the area, values, and home maintenance. He is such a polite and honest man and I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home!
Shane was always easy to reach, and returned our calls in a timely manner. He also walked us through the buying/selling process, and answered our questions thoroughly. We had a particularly difficult buyer for our home, and he helped us negotiate that process as smoothly as possible. Shane genuinely cares about his clients and ensures they have a great experience, whether they are the buyer or seller.
As a newly single mom of one, a home purchase can be a scary process. Shane not only navigated me through the process with professionalism and ease, but he truly had my son and I's best interest in mind. Shane handled every detail of the process for me, and kept me in the loop every step of the way. He went above and beyond to provide guidance and excellent client service. I would recommend Shane to a friend, a family member, or even a perfect stranger with 100% confidence that his hard work would impress them as much as it did me. My son and I love our new home thanks to Shane!
Turned out to be a bidding war. The next morning he came over to sign the papers to sell. He kept me updated all the time.
I appreciate Shane walking me through the whole process to selling my home. He’s the best. Had multiple contracts on it in less than 3 days. If I could give Shane 10 stars I would.
