We had the best 1st home buyers experience with Marissa Jackson of Duffy Realty. She she was patient, informative, and resourceful. She took the stress out of the entire process that we hear so many others talk about. This company has great agents and a great attitude when it comes to assisting their clients with the purchase of a home.

I really enjoyed working with Duffy Realty. In the beginning, I had contact with Rhonda and she was very helpful and her response time was very fast. We had a difficult time choosing an agent as there were so many great options, but in the end there was something about Marisa Jackson that drew us toward her. She is so awesome. She was very patient and understanding of the fact that we were new to the process and new to Georgia. She was there for us at all times, any day of the week. She opened our eyes to other search options other than what we were specifically looking for and we found a great home because of that. I would highly recommend working with Duffy Realty. I'm positive there are other agents that are great just like our agent. Less ... More

I first contacted Todd Edwards in February 2015 when I decided to move my family from Chicago to Georgia. I originally found Todd due to the volume of home sales in the area we were targeting. My initial thought was that a realtor didn't have much interest in me, since I wasn't moving for another six months and was out of state. However, Todd didn't have that mindset and from day one was interested in my situation and finding us the right home. Todd suggested that we reconnect in several months when I 100% know that I will be moving to Georgia. In the meantime he did send me links to view neighborhoods and school districts of his recommendation for my three children. When we finally decided 100% that we were moving, I reached out to Todd to get things started. He was quick with a response and immediately started asking questions about my family, price range and things that I was interested in. Within 24 hours I had more houses than I needed to look at, but was able to start narrowing down the area to have Todd Focus on. As the weeks got closer Todd continue to send me homes and check in with phone calls to ensure I was taken care of. I decided to bring my family from Chicago to Georgia to visit for a weekend and see homes to potentially buy. Todd had great customer service and sent me the houses beforehand that we would be seeing to get a look prior to walking through the doors. We were able to narrow it down to 16 houses to view. From Tuesday to Friday only 9 houses were left for Todd to show us, but he added a couple to make sure the visit was going to be worth it. On Saturday we were able to see the 11 houses that Todd had setup showing for and wanted to make potential offers on three of them. However, by the time Todd called to set-up second showings for those three homes on Sunday, two of them had gone under contract. We were now down to one option and it had only been 2 hours since we saw the last house. Todd had family plans as it was Memorial Day weekend, but that didn?t stop him from taking the visit to the next level. Todd quickly sent me links to an additional 8 homes to visit on Sunday as we were driving back on Monday and needed to find a home. We decided to see four more, which reinforced that Todd was still focused on finding us the right home and not just a home. Come Sunday morning we were ready to see the four new homes and the one from the day before. Once again, two of those homes went under contract over Saturday night and we were down to three options. The first house we viewed was more than we expected and was better than any home we had seen that weekend. We ended up having a second showing schedule for an hour later after the first home of the day and Todd suggested that if we like, let?s make an offer. My wife and I agreed that we wanted to make an offer and Todd start the process. As he had that process going he continued to show us the other homes just in case this home fell through. After viewing all the homes we decided to heavily pursue the home from Sunday that we originally didn?t have on our list. After negotiating, which was seamless with Todd taking the lead, the sellers accepted our offer and the house we had a second showing was willing to negotiate on price as well. We now had two options to choose from and decided to go with the home we found on Sunday with the offer already accepted. Buying a home from out of state is stressful enough, but Todd was able to alleviate any stress that we had and never lost sight of what was important. Todd puts his client?s needs and wants ahead of everything else and goes the extra mile to ensure his client?s needs get met. I have bought/sold several homes over the past years, but have never encountered a realtor like Todd. If you are looking for a realtor who cares about you and your family, while doing whatever it takes, even if that means sacrificing his own time, then Todd is the realtor for you. Exceeded all or our expectations and even put us in touch with an attorney and mortgage person that we used. Even both of them were professional and you could tell that they were part of something special that Todd has to offer. Thank you Todd Edwards for caring about me and my family! Less ... More

We just closed on our new house and I would like to share my experience in working with Jan Huchteman at Duffy Realty. The entire process was very smooth and predictable. At each step along the way, either automated emails and/or Jan was reaching out to me proactively and letting me know what the next step was. Jan was also consistently responsive each time I needed to ask her a question and responded very promptly and courteously each and every time. I highly recommend Duffy - and since I had recently also sold my house with Duffy and saved several thousand dollars - I recommend them as both a buyer and a seller! Less ... More

Our agent was Vince Turley and we can't say enough about how great he's been! When we found the house we wanted, he helped us every step of the way to complete the paperwork, guide us in negotiations with the seller etc. Hopefully we won't need a realtor any time soon, but if we did we'd call Vince right away!

I would like to thank Duffy Realty for helping me through my short sale process. Be warned that it is a scary process and will take time, but hang in there. Duffy provided all the necessary paperwork and a law firm to help see through this process. After listing my home, I didn't have to contact the bank from that point forward which was a good thing as they will hassle you and cause more stress in the process. Let Duffy and the Attorneys handle it! As long as you respond to all phone calls from agents, check your emails, sign all paperwork, and follow up, the process is pretty smooth. BE PATIENT! Understand that when things are quiet, that is a GOOD thing. That means there are no problems with paperwork and things are moving along. Trey answered all my questions within a timely manner, usually via email, but when it was urgent or important, he would give me a call. I spent no money out of pocket and my home was sold in 5 months at a higher price than originally listed which was great. (could have been less, but that is depending on negotiations with mortgage company) Of course this is not the case for everyone but it was a very welcomed result for me. At any point in the process if I had questions, concerns, or suggestions, Duffy had no problem listening and making changes that would help seller, buyer and of course the bank! Remember to communicate and follow up as that is key. Less ... More

I will be returning to Duffy Realty in the near future. After 2 failed attempts with full service real estate agents I have now realized that almost no one in this industry has any idea what they are doing. If an agent loses my key fob should they be responsible for replacing? If I tell an agent that the property can only be sold by a non unwarrantable loan at an 80% 20% lending rate should the agent pull the property off the market for 10 weeks whilethe buyer tries to secure conventional financing, with the promise to do a 20% down payment, with less than 1% good faith moneysecuring the deal? I got the best advice from Duffy staff and I represented my own property better than any other agent I hired. Less ... More

We are taking a short trip to Hawaii to celebrate the sale and the savings will more than pay for that trip.

I sent a request on Zillow for information on a home that I saw. Christy with Duffy Realty promptly go back with me and set up a day and time to see the home. We loved it and put an offer in that day! Christy Meas was wonderful! It took a while until we could close (3 months) but Christy kept us informed and made the closing process as easy as possible. She returned every call, text and email...no matter how many times I called. She was very patient with us. We could not have made it without her! Christy is an asset to Duffy realty. My husband and I thought she was the best and would use her to list or purchase a home again. She has even returned my text messages after closing. Can I say again how great she is?!! I would also like to say that we used Duffy's closing attorney. They were the best! Thanks for helping us find the perfect house for my husband and I. Debbie and Robert Jackson Less ... More

Not having shopped for a home in 17 years, I had little clue where to begin. After a look on the Zillow website, I found a few listings to start my search. Lucky for me, one of the first was being shown by Duffy Real Estate. Jan (from Duffy) contacted me after I put my info on an inquiry for the house listing. After being shown that particular house, I was so impressed with Jan's attention to detail that I decided to hire her to search for me. She quickly focused in on what I was looking for. In a few days she forwarded several listings that were right on the money. Within another week I was placing a bid on a great house. Jan and Duffy Realty made this a painless process. Less ... More

Duffy selling system was great. Even in difficult situations, they can help you understand the situation in order to make the best decision. Answers to all questions within a day from asking. It is more work than paying for a full agent, however they guide you through the process. Definitely worth it for the savings.

As a first time homebuyer, my husband and I viewed the process as a daunting one. On our first visit with Michael Pillow, he explained in great detail what to expect as a buyer, and how Duffy Realty can help through its Buyer Action Timeline. Michael was very patient and informative as we explored our options, and he provided relevant data (e.g., HOA fees, taxes, etc.) quickly and accurately. Additionally, he was very easy to contact and responded promptly ? so promptly most times, in fact, we would get worried after as short as an hour! We trusted Michael to have our best interests in mind, and he proved us right by negotiating aggressively on our behalf and ensuring the process moved along timely even with a lackadaisical seller?s agent. Today, we?re proud new homeowners and could not have done it without Michael and Duffy Realty. We know who will be helping us buy our next home! Less ... More

My husband and I had been looking for a couple of years, when we hired Katy with Duffy to be our agent. Katy found a home in the exact area we wanted to be. The home was a short sale, which we had been told by others would be a exhausting process. Katy worked very hard for us and we were able to get the home.I would definatly recommend Duffy to others.

Working with agent Jennifer Hemmer was joy! Jennifer was very attentive and responsive to my first time home owner needs and request when it came time to search for my perfect home. Jennifer was two steps ahead of me during our trek and made herself easily accessible and available for any questions or concerns that I have had. With her tedious schedule she was always eager to step in the field with me to seek homes rain or shine. I felt very comfortable and secure working with Jennifer because she had a genuine concern for my overall satisfaction. I was greatly impressed by the openness to knock on the doors of neighborhood residents to get a scope of the neighborhood and the surrounding areas. Mrs. Hemmer always presented professionalism, options, and advice which I was happy to follow. We built a trust and a bond and I would recommend Jennifer Hemmer to any first time, second time, or investment home buyer. Thank You, Shaconda Magwood Less ... More

Real estate is an easy process when it is made easy. We have sold so many homes, that we have learned that the principles of real estate apply to all homes. There is no customized strategy, it is common sense applied to a marketing budget and then detailed, no b.s. rhythm of a process that closes the transaction. We have so many deals working at one time, we can't afford to make this complicated. Thank you for your business and we look forward to helping your friends and family. Rhonda Duffy Less ... More

Duffy is awful! I have had my house listed with them for a long time, it is a beautiful home, priced in line with the market. It hasn't sold. Other agents dislike Duffy and don't like to show their properties. They don't like the business model is what I have been told. When you call Duffy you get an answering machine. When you have a problem you get scripted answers but no real solutions if they respond at all. They're not worth the trouble.
Response fromRhonda Duffy
Mrs. B, in the last 5 months, I have sold 92 homes in your county alone. That proves that our model works! Of course, without question, some agents will and will always trash talk us because they do not like our business model. However, just because they trash talk does not mean that at the end of the day they won?t bring their buyer to the home because that is how they make a living ? they sell my inventory. As far as your home goes, we have recommended a couple of scientific strategies that work for everyone and those strategies would propel you off the market. The ball is in your court to give us the go ahead to make those happen. My direct email is and always has been on the client support website for you. The plan that I would devise for your selling, is the same plan that I would devise for any client. And, don?t forget that you can transfer your listing to an agent of your choice at no charge.

Once we found the right house, his expertise as an agent really came out. He showed me a way that really took the stress out of buying a house.

I think the way that you are speaking of is our 8 Step Buyer Action Timeline that spells out what and when to a precise timing.

Duffy makes a difference! Great support team in place. Great business model. Worth more than .03% commission. I will highly recommend Duffy to friends, neighbors and family. Scott Slade at WSB is right: Worth the choice to use Duffy. We hired the best and we hope you feel the same.

Listed home, but didn't sell
Not a good experience. Agent that visited only wanted to get my check and leave as quick as possible to get to another listing. Had on market with Duffy for 5 months, and was only shown a few times. Duffy did not show the house a single time. Only feedback Duffy provided was to lower the price. Also found out that a lot of other agents do not like working with Duffy, and do not want to show Duffy properties. Overall this experience was a waste of time and money.
Response fromRhonda Duffy
I am sorry that you did not get the message via our Orientation video that buyers today search the internet for houses to put on their list to see. Agents, including Duffy agents, no longer direct what buyers see. So, foot traffic has greatly decreased over the years. Furthermore, our strategy for selling homes is not only to lower the price, it is to change pictures, tweak pictures, improve the condition of the home, make the showing accessibility easier and to possibly raise the commission to the buyer?s agent. We have a strategic approach and formula for all advice that we give. My confusion here lies in the fact that you did not get any of this via our client support website, the paperwork that was left with you and the conversations that you must have had with our team? That is odd to me? Remember that you can return at any time at no charge. When you do, let?s chat. My direct email is on the client support website. Thank you for your business. Rhonda Duffy Less ...

Duffy Flat Fee program is a real winner! Last Monday, sitting at the closing table, was just 51 days after I signed up for Duffy?s ?Flat Fee? program! Frosting on the cake is the fact that it sold for the initial asking price! All former house sales I?ve made were FSBO but this time I needed a quick sale at the right price. The Duffy folk treated me like an old friend as I made call after call with questions that kept popping up and also, as things progressed, help I needed in knowing what?s next! Each call resulted in a well informed, encouraging answer. They were never in a hurry and always friendly. Long story short, I?m glad I quickly changed from another Flat Fee agent that had made me feel like just another number to Duffy. And so you may be sure that the next time I?m ready to sell a house, my 1st call will be to Duffys! Less ... More

None. We connected, but it did not work out.
I called the Alpharetta office to request an agent speak to us about listing our home for sale. After a 5 minute speech (it sounded like he was reading from a script) i asked if he could just drop by and see our house and discuss their policy. I was shocked when I was told his "consultant fee" was $150. But, if I listed with him it would be applied to the $500 initial signup fee. My question is what if I really didn't like him or their policies, I'm stuck paying him $150? Somebody just lost a good listing. We went with Re/Max and listed our house for $487,500 Less ... More
Response fromRhonda Duffy
Because our business model is a different model that is based on a lower fee and that lower fee would have saved you between $12,185.00 and $26,785.00, we don't have room in our model to interview in person at no charge. Our clients appreciate the fact that we will 1) talk on the phone to answer questions and 2) have been very transparent on our website but mainly 3) have been very conscientious about the fees that we charge to keep the money in their pocket. We are very proud of our structure and we realize that our model is not for everyone. Some people prefer to pay their agents a ridiculous amount of money at closing for a free interview upfront. In your case you are paying your agent $965.00 per hour if you get a buyer in the average selling time in Atlanta right now. Thank you for considering us. Less ... More

We took a long time to find a home to buy and Shane was very professional and always was available to help us with questions and showings. He was always available to help and when we found our house his true expertise were revealed. He was at all meetings and walk through and helped guide us with any questions we had. Thanks Shane!

My agent is Marisa Jackson under the Duffy banner of realtors. I have been in the market for 6 months now and worked with 4 agents, and just from experience I can say that Marisa hands down has my best interests at heart. I have walked through houses ranging from 100-350k with either the intent of rebuilding with my personal tastes or a turnkey property. We recently went through a submission, contract agreement, I paid the lender and home inspection fee's up to the point of contract termination over needed home repair. Through all of it, I felt Marisa had my best interests in mind. I will continue to work with her until I find the house that is just right for me and my daughter. She has turned this into a joy rather than a frustrating experience. Less ... More

I am grateful to Duffy fot the quick responses when I had questions and especially Victoria's sound advice to "stay the course" when the buyer asked for an extension (because the lender stopped the appraisal process at one point and forgot to start it again when she intended to) and I had my doubts about the appraisal actually "catching up" to what the present time market seemed to be.

I would like to take a moment to thank Todd Edwards and his whole Duffy Realty team for helping our home buying process go smoothly and for being patient, understanding and knowledgeable when things didn't go so smoothly!! When the house we wanted had a multiple offer situation, Todd's advice was solid and helpful. When our buyers needed an extension and delayed our closing, he handled that with professionalism and helped resolve that situation too! We ended up with a wonderful home in our choice neighborhood for under our budget!! Todd was always available and willing to help; always getting back to us or answering our calls immediately. I also want to give a special acknowledgement to Rob for always being willing to show us houses and working with our schedule and to Juliette for handling all the behind the scenes stuff and communicating with the lender and closing attorney. We loved working with this team and would highly recommend Todd to friends and neighbors! Less ... More

My agent was Mike Kim and he was great to work with. He was always on top of things and always gave great advice. Very nice guy who helped every step of the way. Moving down to Georgia from PA, we did not know the area very well but Mike was very informative about the different areas while he took us around to different areas that we thought would work for us. When we picked the house, there were some issues with the home that we discovered during inspection and Mike quickly took the steps needed to have them fixed by the seller. Closing was delayed because of some issue that the lender could not get resolved so I was getting nervous but Mike was very reasuring that we wold close and that made a big difference. He explained to me that lenders will have these issues that can take time but would workout in the end. He was right. Less ... More

My home in the North Atlanta suburbs sold in two weeks for an amount that was higher than I asked. There ended up being two offers on the same day and they were bidding up the price. This would not have happened with another real estate company representing us. Best of all, commissions were unbelievably reasonable. Duffy gave me some coaching to make the most of the 25 showings that happened in two weeks and it worked perfectly. Big hug to the Duffy Realty family.

From the moment we got in touch with Duffy Realty, we knew we've made the right choice. We were shopping for agents for about a week, and most were very slow to respond. Todd Edwards from Duffy Realty got in touch with us immediately, set up a meeting where he explained the hunting/buying process, and then showed us many places. He was very patient throughout the process, and most importantly, he was available at any time of the day. It wasn't uncommon that we'd text him a question at midnight and he'd still respond immediately. Once we found our perfect place, Duffy did everything to get a great price for us. The closing process was very simple thanks to their capable and very available staff. I would highly recommend Duffy Realty to anyone looking to buy or sell a place.

All of my friend agents were very "concerned" that I went with Duffy. That was hard to listen to after I had made a choice to do what was best for my family - I need that money. Then, the Duffy listing person came over and blew my mind. They were so polished at what they do and when we were listed before they left the home, that blew my mind. But then when I came back into my house and my cell phone was ringing with an agent saying that they wanted to show the home that night, I felt rushed. That same week, we got an offer. That same month, we closed on our home. I don't know what to say except, I paid, Duffy delivered, my friends are jealous and my life has changed and I no longer have a huge mortgage payment that I wondered how I was going to pay it. Why on earth doesn't everyone list their home this way? I saved over $10,000 dollars and I still have conversations with my friend agents asking what they do differently and they just sit there...

Thank you Duffy Realty for helping me and my family sell our former home. I can honestly say that the process of selling a home was interesting and humbling at the same time. I greatly appreciate the work that the Contracts department and their Staff did in making this a smooth process. Unfortunately I was not able to use any of savings from the sale of our home. But the savings did help to reduce the amount of money that I owed at the time of the Closing process.
