This was not my first time working with Mary Lane Sloan. In fact, my husband, son and I have contracted with her several times prior and will do so again. The reason is simple: Mrs. Sloan and the ART Team get the job done. Mrs. Sloan is the epitome of professionalism and she does an excellent job of keeping you informed with an intense focus on detail. Moreover, the collective approach of the ART Team makes every step of the real estate transaction a breeze. In short, I highly recommend Mary Lane Sloan and the ART Team whether one is buying or selling. They have been an absolute blessing thus . I would not trust anyone else. Less ... More

The ART of Real Estate is the ONLY real estate company to use! They know how to sell houses! From the very first time I met with Andrea and Brad I was so impressed. They told me everything I needed to know right up front. They are honest, trustworthy and know their stuff! They were spot on with sale price too. My house sold in a little over 35 days..... They provided excellent advice on what areas I needed to focus on improvements, how to arrange furniture, and even conducted a home inspection BEFORE the For Sale sign ever went up. This inspection provided me with valuable information- no worries about large repairs being discovered AFTER I accepted an offer. With The ART of Real Estate having such a great team someone was always available to me to answer questions. There was ALWAYS someone available to answer questions from potential buyers too. That is important! The ART of Real Estate is the real deal! I am sticking with them in my search for a new home! If you are serious about selling your home, call them! It doesn't cost anything for them to come and let you know what they offer- you won't be disappointed! Less ... More

Working with Bryan Quinn made the home buying and relocating experience a little less stressful. As an out of state client it was difficult at first to get the wheels in motion with a realtor, however once Bryan of the Art Team stepped in it was smoother sailing. I would recommend The Art of Real Estate to others for their home buying needs.

We worked with Andrwa at The ART of Rral Estate and can't say enough good things. She was responsive, patient, knowledgeable, fair, smart and a fantastic person to have on our team. Wouldn't ever even consider using anyone else. Tried two other realtors before we found Andrea and there is no comparison. Her entire team was top notch every step of the way.

We had an excellent experience working with Matt Carroll and the team at The Art of Real Estate. Being new to SC, the decision to purchase a home wasn't easy. Matt was very knowledgeable about the city and took great care in making sure that our needs were met in finding the perfect home for our family. I would highly recommend The Art Team to anyone looking to purchase a home.

They have a great team and represent your home in a very professional manner. We had our home listedd with two other realtors and because of the excellent presentation by Mary Lane Sloan and the Art of Real Estate team, we ha more showing in the first month than we did with the other companies over a year. Very professional, dedicated and a real pleasure to work with.

Selling a rental property is never easy, as the Agent must deal with multiple tenants as well as the property owner. The ART team goes above and beyond what is required for excellent service and professionalism. I knew what was going on at all times. We listed the property, presenting it in the best possible way, had a cash offer, and closed in record time. I am thrilled and recommend the ART team to anyone who requires integrity, efficiency and superb service in their real estate endeavors!

If you buy or sell in Columbia (I bought, but will use this crew if I ever sell), use the Art team. I was only semi-familiar with the market, the team went above and beyond to help me understand the market, establish reliable frame of reference around past and present comp deals, and get oriented. They didn't waste a minute of my time, they were fun and friendly, and they know their business cold.

Kathy and I were looking to downsize and simplify from a single family home to a townhome or condo. We worked with Andrea to negotiate a contract for the purchase of a very nice townhome close to our present home. Then came the process of selling our current home. Being in the real estate development business myself, I was aware of Andrea and the ART Team and had heard good things about them, but had never experienced it firsthand. The ART Team listed my house and through their marketing and networking delivered a buyer extremely quickly that we contracted with at a very fair price. From that point, different members of the ART Team took control of their specific areas of focus to guide us through all of the steps from contract to closing in a seamless and professional manner. Andrea told me a lot about the Team when she went through the listing agreement with us, but there is nothing like seeing the process work perfectly on your own personal transaction. I was amazed to learn about the high percentage of ART Team listings that they sell themselves. That speaks well to their outreach, personal networking and marketing capabilities. Everyone I interacted with at the ART Team always seemed to be available, day or night, when I needed them. We have and will continue to recommend Andrea and the ART Team to our friends. Less ...

This is a boutique real estate agency. You are going to pay a premium price, but you will receive premium service. They delivered on every promise to me. They are ahead of the curve when it comes to reaching potential buyers and know exactly what it will take to sell your home in the fastest amount of time.

We recently purchased a home in Columbia and had JT Livingston with The Art of Real Estate assisting us. We cannot say enough wonderful things about JT. He was extremely helpful and patient with us throughout the entire home buying process. Which was quite an ordeal as we were relocating here from out of state! I would highly recommend JT to anyone looking to move from out of state or locally. He goes above and beyond to meet your every need during the home buying process.

I am a local residential builder that uses Mary Lane Sloan for everything. It is hard to find a knowledgeable and hard working real estate agent in today's world. Mary Lane exceeds all expectations. Whether you're looking to buy or sell, give her a call. She is a part of a very small elite group of agents in Columbia that you can count on. The ART team is also great with teamwork when others are tied up. Being a builder I have searched high and low for a good agent. Don't waste you time calling anyone else! Less ... More

We had another purchase fall through after final loan approval. That very day Andrea sent us a new listing for an even better house and we loved it so we put the contract in that day. I was surprised she suggested an offer so low but the sellers met us halfway and we had sellers' approval by evening. Closed in 29 days!

Andrea is very professional and crosses her "T's" and dots her " I's". if there was a bump in the road, she and her team were on top of it to get it resolved, and always came back to us with all of our options. The Art Of Real Estate are group of professionals that keeps their clients desires to the forefront. Not only where they professional and accommodating during the selling process, they have been extremely valuable in helping us find a new home, this of course is still a work in progress. We never thought that our home would sell so quickly, our house sold within 72 hours of it being listed. The staging and the photos of our home that was taken by Andrea's team where expertly done, when I looked at the photos of our home on the MLS, I wanted to buy it. The angles were spot on and every feature was accurately highlighted. I would strongly recommend any one buying or selling a home, that they strongly consider " The Art Of Real Estate" as there go to agents. You won't regret it. Best experience thus far!!! Less ...

As this was my first home purchase I had a lot of questions regarding each stage of the process. Mary Lane answered a number of questions in our first meeting and provided me with extensive materials (in the form of handy binder) to both help keep me organized and answer questions on issues from the search through closing. As the process moved forward, I felt well-supported throughout each stage. Whenever I had questions I received a response very quickly (within an hour if not minutes). My closing agent and broker-in-charge were very thorough in the inspection and walk-through processes, addressing matters that I had not thought of and making sure I understood what happened next. I would certainly recommend Mary Lane and the rest of the team without reservation. Less ... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the added professionalism and what having a team approach brought to the experience of selling a home. Specific people came along side us with particular jobs all while Matt oversaw the process. Realtors best attributes are being available, honest, timely, and your advocate.

I had a very difficult closing and The ART of Real Estate staff fought for me every step of the way. They were my support and my advocates through the entire painful process. We were supposed to close Thursday morning and the closing barely happened Friday at 6:30 pm. Paige Edwards stayed with me the entire time even though I kept encouraging her to go home to her family - we were well into the weekend by the time I signed the closing docs. Jason Fields was my advocate and the bull dog who helped make the closing happen. Lastly I can't say enough about Andrea Reynolds. She was my agent and friend through the entire process. She was available whenever I needed her and no question was too silly. In fact, she is still helping me connect with the right folks to complete work on the house. Even though her job is officially over. I have never had such great service and I would never use anyone else. Less ... More

I did not have to schedule anyone or do anything. AND our final offer was WAY over our first offer that was received before working with the ART Team. They kept me in the loop on sales and showings- if there was a suggestion made by a potential buyer, they took care of it- even down to having the yard cleaned for closing.

The ART of Real Estate, in particular my Realtor, Mary Lane Sloan, did a fantastic job of guiding me through the experience of purchasing my 1st home. The process moved very quickly and painlessly. I felt as though the ART of Real Estate truly had my best interest in mind and I would recommend them to anyone looking to purchase a home.

Mary Lane Sloan found my husband and I an investment property that we know has a lot of potential. We were able to get an offer submitted pretty quickly and closed within two weeks. She has provided insight into the home's value once renovated and seems knowledgeable about the area and market dynamics. Would recommend.

Andrea and her professional team of realtors were great to work with and they far exceeded our expectations. They handled every little detail from the initial listing and marketing of our house to the coordination of our closing. Andrea was the first realtor to call me back when we decided to list our house and she met with us immediately. She answered my many phone calls or returned the calls immediately. I have already referred her to many of my friends and will be happy to speak to a perspective client of The ART of Real Estate at any time. These guys are the real deal! Less ... More

Justin was perfect! Always there when we needed him! Our home was a foreclosure so it was not a typical home buying experience. The seller was difficult to deal with and Justin did all he could to make everything work out! Hope to refer some others to him soon!

We worked with Matt Carroll to find and buy our first home. He was an awesome fit for us. Buying a house is a stressful process, but Matt helped us to feel confident and empowered to make good decisions. He used his knowledge and expertise to nudge us in the right direction during our search and again at the negotiation table, but we never felt pressured or uncomfortable. It felt like we were working with a very professional friend. We also loved the ART of Real Estate team in general. They are set up to support you through the entire process and make sure you get through all the steps on time. After having this experience, it's hard to imagine working with anyone else. Less ...

When we were looking for a house, we wanted one we could be comfortable in for the rest of our lives. I'm recently retired and my wife is disabled so we needed a home big enough that we could have our grandchildren visit and not be crowded but small enough we could keep up with it. JT went the extra mile to help us find the right house in an area where values were stable then helped work thru the details of dealing with an out-of-state seller. We're home. We're happy. and I highly recommend JT and the ART team. Less ... More

Adam Mathews is, by far THE best real estate agent we have ever worked with. He was honest, extremely knowledgeable and quickly clued into what we were looking for. Communication was excellent. We truly felt that our agent was looking out for US, not the what he or the company could get. When we decided to sell or purchase again, we will be using Adam and The ART of Real Estate!

The ART of Real Estate was very helpful in the process of buying our first home. Mary Lane, our agent, walked us through everything and was very helpful throughout the process. She was patient as we were learning everything as we went. I am grateful for her help, encouragement, and willingness to talk to us at any point in the process. Mary Lane gave us a huge overview the first time we met then walked us through step by step in the following months which was very helpful!

We worked with Mary Lane at the ART of Real Estate to find and purchase our home. My wife and I think that the best way to describe Mary Lane and the ART of Real Estate team is on-point without being impersonal. What this meant for us was that she truly listened to what we had to say about our ideal home, found us what we were looking for, and guided us in the purchasing process in a professional, yet friendly, way. Mary Lane was almost immediately able to show us potential houses that were definite possibilities. It was a pleasure looking at these potential homes with Mary Lane. She was professional, friendly and courteous. It felt like we had a knowledgeable friend showing us homes. In looking at the houses, she continued to listen to our wants and needs and was ultimately able to find us what we wanted, within our budget. Mary Lane and her team made the purchasing process of our home as stress-free as possible with her knowledge of the process and attentiveness along the way. We really couldn't have asked for much more. Less ... More

Every second of our home buying experience with Mary Lane was excellent- from start to finish. She was extremely professional, got things done in a very timely fashion, and gave excellent follow up as well. I love our house and hope we won't move again any time soon, but we would definitely call Mary Lane again should we need to!
