Adam was able to sell our condo in 5 days! The process of getting the offer went very smooth. From there it was coordination between our listing agent and the closing coordinator to get to closing. There were a few times where communication between all parties involved could have been a little better, but all in all it was a great experience. I would use Adam Merrick in the future for sure. We've already recommended him to another friend of ours and he was able to sell there home in 8 days. Less ... More

I had a great experience selling my house with the Merrick Team. I have 3x as many showings in the few weeks it was listed with them than I did in the over six months with my previous realtor. I really appreciated the constant communication I received.

Helped me buy and sell homes
We used Adam Merrick for both selling and buying our home. We knew we wanted to be an aggressive seller. With the help of Adams team we accomplished selling our home in about 30 days. With our home selling quickly, the buying side was very helpful. We used Cathy for the buying side. She did a wonderful job. She spent many hours with us in two days to find the right home for us. She listened to what we were looking for and had many options to look at. We were very impressed with all the work she did for us. We sold on a Tuesday night and found our new home on a Friday morning. When it came to the closing we had Linda working with us. Linda stayed on top of everything. She kept the process moving. We had something come up with the buyer of our home and she made sure everything still was a smooth process. Overall we were very pleased with Adam Merrick's team. They do know the statistics of the areas as far as the prices and they are there for you. Less ... More

Very good. I expected my home to be a tough sell due to its condition, and originally contacted Adam's team due to the guaranteed buy program. My home did not qualify, again due to its condition, but despite this his team was willing to help me sell. My home was on the market for roughly a month before it sold. His team is very skilled, professional, and quick to respond to questions and concerns. I would recommend his team to those looking to sell their home.

It was an easy process from meeting with the Realtor to getting the house on the market!! Received regular updates via phone calls and emails. Really liked getting a text with the date and time of showings. Then being able to accept that time and date or declining it. Staff was very knowledgeable in and out of the office. Questions answered in a timely manner. Closing made very easy and efficient!!

Troy Kerrn was a fantastic buying agent! He was knowledgable about market, gave guidance when needed, listened to us & was never pushy! When we finally found our dream home - he negotiated for us & made it possible for us to own it!! I would definitely refer him in the future to anyone needing help buying a home! Thank you Troy for all if your hard work!!

My experience with the Merrick group was incredible, we started the process in late January of this year and closed in 31 days. They were very responsive and very helpful threw out the whole process. Me personally I would recommend them to all the people I know, you couldn't ask for a better team from start to finish.

My realtor Joe and the closing agent Linda were very professional, knowledgeable and quick to respond. If it had not been for them I would still be dreaming about my new home online. But instead I found my new home and closed in a little over a month. I love my house and thank the Adam Merrick team for all they did to help me not only get what I was looking for but much, much more!!!

I worked with Troy Kern at Adam Merrick for my home purchase. Troy was informative, professional, and attentive to my buying needs. I would definitely recommend him to a friend. The closing team at Adam Merrick was very helpful as well, especially as I had a lot of hoops to jump through with the type of loan that I took out.

This was our first time purchasing a home and our agent Cathy explained every step in detail so we were never confused. Our closing agent Cindy kept up with all of our paperwork and we never had to worry about a single thing. We will definitely use them when it is time to sell!

We used the Adam Merrick team to sell our former home and purchase our new home. They were very responsive to all our questions and requests. We were able to sell and buy our home within a reasonable amount of time. Our home was aggressively marketed and sold at a reasonable price. We were able to purchase and move into our new home immediately thanks to the negotiations and concern of our agent.

When I contacted the Adam Merrick team, I was assigned to William as my realtor. He was professional, knowledgeable and scheduled a time to come to my home. William reviewed the real estate market with me and had an outstanding knowledge base of it. We listed the property on Tuesday and I had an offer on Saturday...house sold. William was always in communication with me and outlined each step of the process. The entire team was kind, helpful and possessed excellent communication skills. I would recommend William at Adam Merrick without any reservations. Many thanks for all your expertise and compassion selling my home. Less ... More

I met with William of the Adam Merrick Team for an initial presentation on the Team's sales record and their recommended listing price. The presentation was very professional and there recommended listing price was in the expected range. William clearly explained the basis for the list price. I chose the Adam Merrick Team and listed the house with them November 11, 2013. The Team had photos taken of the property and had the listing on the internet that same week. An offer was made December 21 and accepted the next day. Through the efforts of the Adam Merrick Team, we were able to close on December 31, 2013. All of the key Team members worked together to facilitate the speedy completion in spite of the holiday period. Less ... More

I was buying my first home and had no idea what I was doing. I was on a very short deadline to find a house and move but Joe made it happen. I was very impressed with the knowledge he had about the market and his prompt attention when I had questions for him. Working with him and finding the perfect home for my family was a great experience! Also after moving in him and Cindy Carlock were also very helpful and supportive with everything!

I had a great experience with Keller Williams. My agent was very knowledgeable, paid attention to what I was looking for and was very patient showing my multiple houses until I found just the right one. I never felt like they were pushy but were always available to answer my questions and would check with me to see if there was anything that had caught my eye lately.

We are investors and have been buying real estate for rental and resale for 20 years so we are fairly aware of the process. We contacted the Merrick Team on a Monday to list a property. The agent met with us on Wednesday. He was well prepared with comps and a suggested pricing. It was on the market by Friday and on the following Monday we had 3 showings scheduled. We were impressed with the ability to use your phone to look up our property if you just happened by and saw the sign. Our photos were professionally taken and looked great online. The Merrick Team keeps up on current trends and what it takes to sell a home. We could not be happier! Less ... More

Great experience! Adam came & looked at our house suggested what needed to be done before listing home. Adam priced house right, within 24hrs of listing home, we already had 6 showings scheduled. The first person to look at our home placed an offer & our home was sold within 48hrs. Adam was very easy to talk to, offered wonderful advice & was very attentive & supportive of our needs. Adam's staff was great to work with as well. I was constantly kept informed of the progress of the selling to closing of our home along with the buying & closing of our new home. I would definitely recommend this team for future buyers/sellers. Less ... More

Our agent was very professional and helpful in finding a home for us. She skillfully determined what we wanted, how much we could afford, and what kind of neighborhood we wanted. She patiently showed us many houses and then when we found "the one", she easily took care of all the paperwork. We just had to sign. It seemed so simple, but that was due to all the hard work she put in to make it that way.She had to deal with grandparents helping the grandson find the right home and she adeptly handled the sometimes different points of view. She was always available when we called and kept the lines of communication open at all times. We were very pleased. Less ... More

My name is Alton Hortman, President of Altris, Inc. We are private real estate investors. We had a home in Pekin, Illinois that had been sitting vacant for over a year and had been listed with another agent on two different occasions. Adam Merrick's team found a buyer that was interested in buying the house. I had asked the prior agent to make sure the furnace was turned on because it was winter and we did no want there to be any pipes bursting. I was out of state and my daughter, who lived locally, gave the previous agent her only key. The agent neglected to turn on the furnace and 7 pipes burst in the house. I scrambled every known source of help I had and we got the house repaired and ready for the HUD inspection. The buyer had car problems and had to use the down payment money to replace their car - and therefore had to back out of the sale. The closing had been planed for March 28th. The Adam Merrick Team swung into action and in a period of 5 weeks had shown the house 11 times and quickly found a new buyer, did all of the inspections, handled the negotiations, and the house closed on June 28th!!! All of this took place in a short 90 days after the first closing was to have taken place! Would I recommend them to help a buyer or seller with their house? You bet I would! Three cheers for the Adam Merrick Team!!! Less ... More

Merrick representatives helped price our home to list it properly. During the sale process we were kept involved with notices of showings that included the time and what firm was doing the showing. When it came to reviewing offers they were very helpful in keeping us on track and getting the best offer possible. The closing of our home was traumatic but the Merrick closer was very involved. So, from listing to selling Merrick has the right people at each plateau. I would recommend them to a seller or buyer. Less ... More

We have all seen the billboards and we have all heard the commercials. Adam Merrick will sell your home guaranteed, or he'll buy it. The team toots their own horn for having the strongest resources available and most dedicated agents in the area. Having worked with Keller Williams realty 3 separate times since 2010, I must say that the team sticks to their guns and delivers on their promises. In 2010, I was a first-time home buyer looking to make a splash in the housing market. With more questions than answers, I looked for a team with guidance. One that would make me feel as if I were their best client, wouldn't patronize my inexperience, and could help me find the house that suited my wants, needs, and more importantly, my budget. In just a few short weeks, my agent, Keesa, found a nice 2-story house with great potential in a quiet part of town. I would spend 3 years renovating this house and calling it "home." 3 years later, major life changes called for major home changes. Upon getting engaged and planning a wedding, I had quickly realized my budding family would outgrow the home I recently bought and put hours of work into. It was time for an upsize. Given the stresses of wedding planning and the unstable housing market, I again turned to a team that would make this transition as seamless as possible for my wife (fiancée at the time) and me. Adam Merrick assured that they would handle all the adversities of selling the house for us. It only took a couple of months for our house to sell; much shorter than we had actually anticipated. The exposure our house had from the team's resources had a very positive impact on how quickly we were able to sell it. Coinciding with selling our house, my wife and I were also looking to buy something that was turn-key, close to our jobs, in a quiet part of town, and comfortably in our budget. Given how well my first home purchase went, I decided to work with Keesa once again. My wife and I produced a list of things we were looking for in our next home, and Keesa ran with it. Like gangbusters, we viewed almost a dozen homes in just over a week. Just as we were deciding to slow down our searches and let the market build back up, a house popped up. Hesitantly, my wife and I decided we would look at one more before we would postpone our search. As it turns out, it is the house we fell in love with and will be calling home. I can only imagine that the life of a realtor is unpredictable, hectic and stressful. Keesa did an amazing job keeping on top of scheduling houses we wanted to see. She was always a phone call or text away from any questions we had. Adam Merrick understood the situation and time-crunch we were in when my wife and I decided to sell our house. He warned us of the market situation, but promised the best services to ensure our house would get exposure. You have to respect a person who works for commission, but doesn't sugar-coat grim situations to the client for his or her own personal gain. Adam is a true professional. Linda is a wonderful woman to work with. Upon selling our house, I had thousands of questions, and she took the time to answer every one. The Keller Williams Adam Merrick team is a strong, dedicated group of professionals who does whatever it can to put it's clients first. I am proud to say I am an Adam Merrick three-peat client, and they have earned my trust. If my wife and I hadn't found a home that we plan to spend many, many years in, I would not hesitate to use them again. Less ... More

I was clueless when it came to buying a house/selling my house. I had planned on going the ?do it yourself? route but wanted to test out some agents in the Peoria area to be sure I was making the right decision. After trying 5 agents I was ready to give up until I noticed an Adam Merrick billboard that I had seen on Farmington rd. I had heard about Adam through the radio and friends but wanted to find my own agent. Turns out I wasted a lot of my time searching because Adam was the clear winner. My house was on the market for 21 days with 14 showings!!! I received an offer on 1 out of every 3 showings and Adam was VERY helpful to walk me through each offer. I finally accepted and was out of my old house and into my new house he had showed me during the selling process. His entire team was devoted to my family and I throughout the whole process; He even watched my dog during some of the showings! I would recommend Adam Merrick and his team to EVERYONE trying to buy/sell their house! Your happiness and success means a lot to the Merrick team and it shows! Less ... More

I had a very pleasant experience working with Adam and the Merrick Team. I was very impressed with the knowledge Adam had about the market and his prompt attention when I had questions for him. I was rubbed the wrong way in the past by an agent, so it was so nice to have a genuine professional help me market and sell my home. I recommend him to anyone looking to buy and sell a home!

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
We had our house on the market for 60 days, Adam never walked into our house to see the value he would put on our house but rather based everything off of pictures. The only person who walked into our house was a person to take pictures. Within the 60 day period we had only 6 showings when they usually have 12. Our house is a very nice three bedroom house. His team was not good at responding to emails or phone calls. Very dissatisfied with his teams work.

I was unsure of which agent to use when we decided to start looking at houses. My cousin referred me to Joe Depauw at the Adam Merrick Team. We immediately knew he was the Realtor for us! Everything went very smooth and without any unexpected surprises. Joe was extremely helpful and thorough on every level. If you are looking for someone to help you buy / sell your home, I highly recommend Joe Depauw. He is a highly motivated person with your best interest in mind!
