Helped me buy home
Don Croom is an amazing agent! He helped us find and purchase the exact home we were looking for while meeting or exceeding every demand we put on him. He knows the local market and was great about only showing us properties that fit within our search criteria. Don is an excellent negotiator and he got the seller to significantly lower the purchase price of our home. We absolutely love the property Don found for us. Thanks Don!

Don was a pleasure to work with. He has developed his own program over the years to maximize the potential of the home he's listing. He took our average older looking home and, with his contractors, updated the home so it stood proudly again. At all times he kept in close contact with us helping us with decisions. With the assistance of his interior decorator, the house was staged beautifully to show as an era period piece. We really appreciated Don's input and guidance. When we were in doubt, he was always there to reassure us. At our first Open House, over a 100 people viewed the home, and there was as bidding war with 10 firm offers. We highly recommend Don Croom. He was an enormous help leading us through this process, and even assisting us after closing. Less ... More

Don Croom went the extra mile on the management and eventual sale of my home in High Point NC. Don was a lifesaver 10 times over, as I live in another state and was unfamiliar with the High Point market. He hired able contractors to refurbish the interior prior to sale, followed up with potential buyers and lessees expressing interest in the property, and gave me valuable advice at each stage of negotiating the sale. I would work with Don again in a heartbeat and would definitely recommend him to my friends. Less ... More

Of all the realtors I have worked with in my business and personally Don truly is exceptional and knows exactly what he is doing. He understands the market(s), he knows what will sell, and he will truly sell/advertise/market your home. Some Realtors will just put a sign in your yard, not Don. Hire him, listen to his advice and you will sell your home. We had the privilege to work with Don last year and he sold our home in a matter of weeks. If I would have taken other agents advice we had met with I know we would have lost a lot of money and certainly not have sold it as quickly. Don came in with a plan and worked it flawlessly. He truly earns his money and is worth every penny! Thank you Don! Less ... More

Not only did Don Croom sell our home in an extremely tough market, he was hands-on in assisting us to make our home market-ready. He is knowledgeable regarding neighborhood market values and he kept us posted regarding the sales activity in our area through his websites as well via telephone contacts, text messaging or in person. Our home sale went smoothly and we would highly recommend Don for anyone who wants to sell their home.

I could not have been happier with our experience thanks to Don Croom. I will be recommending him to all of our family and friends and will absolutely be using him when we are ready to purchase again. He was in constant communication throughout the process and his negotiation skills are fantastic. We had a top to bottom home remodel, kid on the way, family emergencies, relocate to another state etc. and the buyers turned out to be nuts. Don handled it all and we went from listed to sold in a matter of weeks. He is a true professional and my family has a real estate agent for life. Thank you Don. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
My husband and I bought our first home about a year and a half ago and Don Croom made the process of purchasing a home less stressful. He took us to a variety of houses in order to see what we could afford in the cities we wanted to live in, so that we could compare our options depending on location. We had a lot of questions about buying a home and Don explained everything to us in terms that we understood. We ended up purchasing a foreclosure and Don gave us time frames on when he would expect to hear back from the bank and some of the other procedures that go along with buying a foreclosed home. He was extremely knowledgeable about the process and after two months of searching and negotiating, we found our dream home. We could not thank Don enough for all his help and patience with us through one of the largest decisions we have ever made together as a married couple. Less ... More

Many apologies for the delay of this recommendation; this letter is long overdue. I wanted to thank you for everything you did last year to make my home purchase so pleasant. I was incredibly impressed with your knowledge, and amazing attention to detail. After just a couple of conversations with you, I had complete confidence in your ability to efficiently manage the purchase of my new home. You did a fantastic job keeping everyone on schedule and ensuring that I received all of the necessary paperwork to make my purchase smooth and worry free. Your generosity didn't stop there! I was so excited to receive the digital pictures of the house which you took for me and I really appreciated how comfortable you made me feel during the whole process. I am happy to recommend you and I will definitely contact you for any future real estate needs. Thank you again. Less ... More

I am writing this letter as a recommendation for Mr. Don Croom. My husband and I had the great fortune of finding Mr. Croom on the internet and sent him a quick E-mail requesting a few minutes of his time. Within 15 minutes Don had called us, set up an appointment for that same day and a great relationship was born. Don has been an excellent realtor representing us at every step and was willing to meet every challenge, which we had no shortage of. From the very beginning, He explained to us the steps and mapped out the area and price range we were interested in. He registered us with Zillow that sent us daily E-mail updates on properties that had become available. At least 3 times a week he made himself available for walk throughs. We walked through 20+ properties and never once did he imply we were being too picky or making a nuisance of ourselves. Finding the right place, as it turned out, was the easy part. When our funding fell through, Don was there to help pick up the pieces. He worked diligently with our banker, organized the inspections and kept the owner of the property informed at every step. Don even came to the closing to make sure all our questions were answered. Even now that we're moved in he keeps in touch making sure everything is okay. We could not have been in better hands. We will gladly refer Don Croom to anyone seeking real estate assistance. Less ... More

Meeting Don Croom was purely by chance. I had done my research, got approved for a loan and knew what I wanted. I called the number on the window of a home that I wanted to look at---Don was the one who answered. He made arrangements to meet with me that day and I have been grateful ever since. Don took the time to get to know both my daughter and myself. He found out exactly what was important to me and walked me through every step of the process. When we went looking at homes, Don was very patient with my questions and allowed me to take my time. I found two properties that I was on the fence about. He advised me to sleep on it over the weekend. I am very thankful that I did. Based on the knowledge and guidance of Don I found the perfect place for my daughter and myself. We have been in our new home for a couple months and couldn't be happier. This was the best home buying experience that I have been through. Don was always on time and treated my daughter and I like we were the only customers he had. I have the highest level of respect for Don and would never recommend or go to anyone else for any real estate transactions. Less ... More

Don and met with my wife and I to set-up a master plan to market our home that involved significant internet based guided touring and broad exposure of the property. He implemented the action plan perfectly and I was well informed throughout the process of showings, "hits" on our internet tour, and feedback from buyer showings. The home sold within two weeks and there is no doubt in my mind that its success was a direct reflection of the planning and execution involved. I am a big fan of Don Croom. Less ... More

Don was able to help us find a home within our budget and handle all our needs. His attention to detail was above and beyond what I expected. He always answered email and phone calls quickly. I would highly recommend his services to my family and friends who might need real state agent services. He followed up with all the paper work and walked us through the payment process. He knew what he was doing which made us feel very comfortable. He was amazing to work with!

My experience with Don Croom was positive from beginning to closing! I am a very demanding person with a hectic schedule, but Don went above and beyond to accommodate my every request. My calls and emails were addressed in a timely manner, plus he was always on time for appointments and very accommodating when last minute changes to my schedule arose. Don is very knowledgeable about the Triad market, which was very helpful. I am thrilled with the home I bought!

Don Croom represented me in the recent purchase of my home and made the entire process straightforward and without undue stress for me. I was particularly impressed with his knowledge of real estate and funding laws and practices, his ability to negotiate, and his attention to detail. He is honest and capable, and I felt he was dedicated solely to my interests in the matter. I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Croom to any prospective consumer in the real estate market.

I love Don! He really listened to what I was looking for. He helped me choose the houses to see and got me in to see them, all the while looking out for my interests. He was patient as he helped me through the whole process. Sometimes he even made me laugh. It did not take us long to find just what I wanted in a house and thanks to him i call it home. I even got it for less than I expected. He gave me helpful advice but never made me feel like I was being pressured.

Don was the most knowledgeable real estate agent I have ever worked with regards to what to watch out for and to check for when buying a home. He identified a lot of things that I wouldn?t have noticed and simplified the entire process. He helped to find a house that worked for us without imposing his opinions. We gave Mr. Croom some criteria that we wanted and he stuck by those criteria so we were able to find something that would work for us. Don Croom is the best!

Don Croom is great! I found him on a Zillow website while searching for a house to buy. He showed me a few houses and stuck with me until we found the right house for me. He was really helpful. I didn't know anything about houses and the house buying process. Thanks to Don I am the proud owner of a home in Greensboro, NC. I highly recommend this real estate agent.

Helped me buy and sell homes
I have done 5 Real Estate deals with Mr. Croom. Over a 25 yr. period I have bought and sold 2 properties. Mr Croom built the home I currently live in. I am very much satisified. My first experience was that I was a brand new homeowner. He worked with me to change me from a renter to becoming an owner. The second time we worked together he helped me move up in quality of home. We sold my condo ( which in NC are hard to sell) and helped me purchase a foreclosure property. I was able to get in a three bedroom, two bath house with only $800 . ( including closing cost !!! ) The next time we worked together we sold that house and built my dream home !!!! I currently live here. If I decide to downsize, he is first one I we see. Thanks, Bernard Casterlow Less ... More
