"Kyle was exceptional. I wanted to take my time searching for a house that had the features I wanted. Kyle was patient and didn't try to pushme into making a decision. I felt like he was interested in matching me with the right house instead of just trying to sell a house. He reallylistened but was also honest when there were features in a house that he thought I should notice both positive and negative. When I closedhe sent a yard person to mow my grass and have my lawn looking nice. That was above and beyond my expectations but it was such agift-I was able to concentrate on moving. He is an asset to Century 21 and to buyers and sellers. If I am ever in the real estate marketagain, I will definitely call Kyle."
