I worked with skip to help us find our home. He was amazing. I could tell right away that he had our best interest in mind and didn't just see us as a dollar sign. He pointed out problem areas in homes for us. Even ones we thought were good houses. Never pushed us to any perticular homes. Just showing us ones we asked or new ones that just went on the market. We finally found our home thanks to skip. He even helped take a picture of a minor repair so the inspector wouldn't charge us again. He was more than helpful in answering all questions either in person or on the phone. Kept us up to date and reassured during the process of buying a home. I would recommend skip to anyone looking to buy a home. Less ... More

We recently worked with Skip on the purchase of a new home - it was a great experience and we would highly recommend his services! Skip was extremely responsive to all our communications - via phone, email & text, no matter what time of day. We have a very hectic work schedule and Skip was extremely accommodating in managing home viewings for us around times that worked for us. He also provided a great deal of guidance in negotiating our offer and we couldn't be happier with the final agreement we were able to make with the seller. If you are looking to purchase a home - Skip is a great asset. We can't wait to move into our new home! Less ... More

We had an excellent experience with Skip Yarger. We were able to see all the houses we were interested in and often times on short notice. He also was not trying to push any sales on us and had our best interests in mind.

Skip was amazing. We are first time homebuyers and didn't know much. Skip was extremely helpful, informative and flexible. He helped us through everything and protected us by looking out for things we weren't familiar or knowledgeable with. He was always there for us when we had a question and worked with our busy schedules. It was a great experience buying a home because of our realtor Skip Yarger!!!

My wife & I couldn't ask for a better real estate agent. We were first time home buyers and Skip really helped us out a lot through out the entire process. His attention to detail is keen & he really helped us find not only the right house, but a good home. Not only is he a good real estate agent, he's also a great person to be around. Highly recommended!!!!!

Skip was very helpful, accessible, and responsive. Skip walked me through the process since I was a first time home buyer. Skip was available to show me all of the homes that I suggested and he found homes within my target range. He gave me valuable information concerning homes and was not looking for a quick sell. He made sure that I thought about my purchase and what I could or could not afford. He helped me look for problem areas in the home so I wouldn't have surprises in the future.

Skip helped us both buy and sell a home. The experience was great. He answered all my questions and also gave advice on certain matters. I couldn't have asked for a better realtor. He made both experiences smooth and easy. He always kept me informed on everything that was happening during the process. I would highly recommend Skip to anyone buying/selling or both.

We were relocating to the area and have no prior knowledge of the neighborhoods or region at all. The relocation also was on a very quick timeline, and we did not have much time to wait around. I emailed Skip online early in the weekday with a list of approximately 10 houses that we wanted to view the following weekend. He promptly replied and said he would be willing to help us out and arranged for a full weekend of showings with the houses we selected as well as a few he suggested. We were able to find a home we loved that very weekend, place a bid, and have the offer accepted. Without Skip's assistance we would have been lost and likely wouldn't have been able to find the place we wanted to quickly. He was also extremely communicative throughout the closing process. He called about key items such as the inspection and loan closing process in general. I felt like Skip treated us as if we were his only clients. I would recommend Skip to anyone who is looking for a home in the area! Our move from Indiana was much less stressful thanks to Skip's involvement. Less ... More

Skip, was very helpful and knowledable. He was able to access the true value of the homes he showed us and point out positives and cons. He made sure that our money was going to be invested wisely. He also is very responsive, and always returned my calls/emails within 15 to 30 minutes regardless of the time of day.

Helped me buy home
My wife and I just moved into our home after looking for the past seven months. Skip was completely supportive and patient with us. We were impressed by the fact he never put any pressure on us despite the fact we asked him to show us houses over a three county area (Richland, Holmes, and Knox). In addition, he never pushed us to look at homes that were toward the top or over our budget. His main focus was always to help us find the best valued house that met our needs, preferences and budget. He also had a good eye for home features that would be a major asset or downfall for the homes we looked at. All in all, Skip was great to work with. He has a very friendly personality and a great work ethic. We unreservedly recommend him for your next home purchase. Less ... More

I would highly recommend using Skip, he was always in contact with me when anything came up or I needed something. He did what he said he would do, answered my questions in a timely manner, and was honest with me about the houses we looked at and the buying process. His level of professionalism was impressive, considering I probably asked a lot of unnecessary questions. I would absolutely use Skip again if I ever decide to buy another house!

Many of our experiences with realtors have been frustrating. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Skip. My husband and I appreciate his help in purchasing a house, and in a very short time we found just what we were looking for.. I recommend him highly and have already told friends and family about him. This is the first review I have ever taken the time to write, so that says a lot about the integrity of Skip. Great guy!

My husband and I were looking to buy our first home. Skip made the entire process from finding the right home, to closing so easy because he took the time to get to know us to better know what we wanted. And he kept us well informed through all the steps, and most importantly he made sure that we understood what every step meant and was very quick to respond when we had any questions through the whole process. We recommend Skip to anyone looking to buy a home because he takes a personal interest in getting to know you to better help you find your perfect home. Less ... More

Helped me buy home
Skip completely fell apart at the end of my deal. He gave me information that was inaccurate and I believed him. That nearly ruined my deal and cost me money and time. I was almost left out in the street because I had planned to vacate my residence on the date he said we would close, and never forwarded that message to the other side. The only thing he was is a middle man who forwarded my info to the other side sometimes. The deal would have fallen apart had I not ignored what he said and talked to the other side on my own. I would not recommend this realtor. If you need somebody to show up and unlock the doors, he is fine. If you need something else, seek somebody else. Less ... More
Response fromSkip Yarger
I do apologize if you've had a bad experience and I do take these matters very seriously.After much extensive research on my transactions in the 44904 area I had five.My two FHA transactions which are the most critical as far as lending guidelines closed in approx 15-20 day's which on average takes up to 30 day's, I do credit lender expertise actually for every transaction that is financed regardless of the type of loan.I had one cash transaction whom is a close friend (those are the easy ones).The other two were conventional financing with immediate possession with the homes not being occupied.The condition of the homes,lending,underwriting guidelines can make some transactions are very trying and stressful but looking back at my transactions even for the past three years I just haven't had anything that went this badly.

I am currently working with Skip. I have gone through a few bad realtors . Skip is amazing! He works with me at any hour of the day and does not rush me off the phone. I feel like Skip wanted to get to know me and my family's needs and find a house that would suit us, not his agenda. I ran Skip around Mansfield and Crestline for two days and we found a home we really love. Thank you Skip for your professionalism and willingness to work with an obsessive worrier such as myself...!

Skip proved himself to be very knowledgeable and personable. He was direct and straight forward in his comments of the property we reviewed together; yet friendly and courteous to my son and myself. The one thing I really admired and appreciated - was that he did not use "high pressure tactics" on us in any way. He contacted me almost immediately after I left an email message; in a very timely and respectful manner. I would definitely recommend Skip to all of my friends; and will certainly use him once again as I review other properties. Thank you Skip for all your efforts; and for being the consumate professional. Respectfully, Carolee Walker Less ... More

Skip has been working with me faithfully on finding a home in my price range and location and it hasn't been easy. His response is immediate, he is a true professional. I have thanked him many times and let him know I appreciate his professional attitude as I continue on my search. I think when you find someone, in any business, who is dedicated to the client and his ethics are admirable, you need to say thanks as often as possible.

I loved working with Skip! If he wasn't able to answer the phone when I called, he got back to me immediately. Everything went so smooth with the home purchase you would never know I was a first-time home buyer! Skip had all the answers I needed and walked me through the entire process. And I was 2300 miles away! Thank you, Skip. It's been a pleasure to work with you.

We contacted Skip through Zillow and he immediately began searching for a property for us. He educated us on the homebuying process and made himself available for any questions along the way. Although we found a home "for sale by owner", his committment to us in finding a home was, of course, greatly appreciated.

Skip is an outstanding agent and I would use him again in a heartbeat. When we first listed our house, we used another company and realtor...that contract couldn?t' end fast enough. I called Skip the second I got out of our first contract (I knew Coldwell Banker has a good reputation and Skip had showed our house twice to different potential buyers). When we first met Skip he was very friendly and professional. Right away he showed us that he was the realtor we wanted to represent our home. Skip knew that times are changing and getting pictures and virtual tours online are very important. He took over 25 pictures of our house and had them on every major website...even with a virtual tour!! I told Skip that communication was very important to us, that we wanted to hear what other realtors, potential buyers, etc said about our house. He came through on every request. Skip is dedicated to his job; he held many open houses for us and kept us updated. We had our house on the market due to a job transfer but in the end we didn't have to move. If we ever have to move, we will be calling Skip. Thank you Skip for all your hard work Less ... More

Great experience. If you need someone attentive and informative. Skip will take great care of you. I've spent months trying to contact different agents in the area and Skip was the first to take me seriously. We closed the deal days after my 21st birthday and now my fiancee and I are living happily in our new home.

I had enjoyed working with Skip. He was very professional and "patient". He didn't try to push me into buying a house that was out of my price range just to make a dollar.
