Our experience working with Duffy Realty was very pleasant. Jeff Przybyla, our agent, was very helpful. He was prompt and responsive, and was a go to guy for any questions related to our home search. We strongly recommend him, especially if you are a first time home buyer, as he walks you through the process very clearly. He also discusses in detail the pros/cons of the options available in the market.

The experience I had with Duffy, was excellent. They went above and beyond for me and my family. My realtor was on top of everything, kept me informed, and up to date. I knew I was not her only client, but when I called, she returned it in a very timely manner. I was very, very happy with the service I received, and would recommend Duffy to anyone, and everyone. It was not easy buying a 115yr old house, but Duffy stood by me, and we got it closed.

Incredible experience, our agent Jennifer Hemmer emulated what a true professional is. Jennifer worked with us from start to finish and never stopped running until we crossed the finish line. A true "willing to do whatever it takes" approach to providing the ultimate customer service experience. Jennifer had an incredible network of professionals that saved us money, time and reduced any levels of stress....Absolutely the only choice for buying a home.

Rhonda's model is excellent! She supplies all of the support and tools needed to successfully sell a home and meanwhile save the community thousands of dollars. It appears the seller below has not followed the strategies, suggestions, and advice given to her and has been experiencing problems with Zillow, not Duffy in particular. Duffy's team is knowledgeable, supportive, & dedicated to do what it takes to sell a home (just as long as the seller is willing to follow the provided suggestions). A tremendous THANK YOU goes to Rhonda Duffy and her team for helping me through this process and saving me $25,000!!! 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. Thank you for your business. Rhonda Duffy Less ... More

We recently sold our existing home and purchased a new home with Duffy Realty and the experience was fantastic! We worked directly with Jennifer Hemmer and she was 1st class from top to bottom. She was at all the walk-through meetings, selling and purchasing meetings, initial showings and closings. I highly recommend Duffy Realty and Jennifer to anyone looking to sell or buy a home. The entire process was smooth and Jennifer was always available to offer advice, answer questions and show us homes. It was like working with family, but better! -Jose Less ... More

Michael Kim is my agent and he was wonderful during the home buying process. I highly recommend him to anyone wanting to buy a home in the Atlanta area. He is very knowledgeable of the different areas. I was unsure where I wanted to buy and he took me around to different areas and showed me the pros and cons. 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.
Response fromRhonda Duffy
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. Michael is guiding you and his many other clients through what most buyers say is stressful. We made a system, on purpose, that beats that stress. Thank you for your business. Rhonda Duffy

Dear Duffy Realty of Atlanta, I am writing to give Duffy Realty of Atlanta my highest recommendation. Duffy Realty possesses all the attributes necessary to be an excellent Realtor: They knows their market extremely well; Duffy Realty is diligent, responsive, and yet very patient with their clients. Duffy Realty is both very professional and personable. Duffy Realty clearly takes pride in doing a good job. In my particular case as a buyer of a home, there were many rough spots on the road to closing and in every instance Duffy Realty was a great help. It would be hard to envision someone doing a better job than Duffy Realty or being anything but happy in choosing to work with them. Less ... More

I closed on my property yesterday thanks to the Duffy team and their assistance through this process - it was longer and more difficult than anticipated due to the buyer using a VA loan. They made that process bearable for me. They were all fabulous.

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

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.

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

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.

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.

Although I had a real loser as the buyer's agent when I sold my house listed with Duffy Realty, I did make it through the process of selling and I kept my sanity by thinking about how much money (my money) I did not have to spend on yet another drama filled listing agent. The buyer's agent was nothing but drama and I felt actually sorry for the buyer. They should have used Duffy too.

I loved having an expert in each part of the process. In the past I hated the pressure of an agent breathing down my neck putting pressure on me to lower my price or hurry up and accept an offer. I won't be using any other listing company in the future. Duffy keep my number.

5 stars with Dufffy Realty, we sold our home last year and Duffy was awesome, we had numerous offers, contracts(3) first 2 fell through, no fault of Duffy. They answer all our questions and guided us the entire process of selling. The final contract was a walk up buyer and we agreed 1 hour later on terms. Duffy handles the contract again and saved us over $11,000 in realtor fees. Highly recommended Duffy to everyone, the entire team all works together to get the job done for you!

Rhonda Duffy and her team are the best value in Atlanta if you are selling a home. They do everything for you that a listing agent should for a small fraction of the cost of a traditional agent. Duffy Realty of Atlanta has helped us every step of the way and given us information to get our house sold faster and for a higher price. I have gotten several offers and expect to finalize a sale within the week. I highly recommend Duffy Realty.

My wife and I used Duffy Realty when we purchased a home in Roswell, GA. We interviewed several Realtors but were instantly impressed with Duffy. They spent the necessary time to make sure that we made the right purchase. We were very specific in what we were looking for. They provided us with unbiased advice. Duffy will be the only company I contact when it is time to buy/sell again.

When our neighborhood agent came over to our home and insulted us with a low ball asking price and then told us that she charges 7%, I was sick. There was no way that I was going to sell a home that I have maintained for 10 years for that price and then use all of my equity to pay her. Then I heard about Rhonda Duffy at an auction that we attended. I asked someone at my table about her and they said that she was awesome, that they had used her twice themselves to sell and buy. We called the next day and got an appointment to list. Now it is 45 days later. We listed for a much higher price than the first agent told us, we sold for almost our asking price and we also saved a boat load of our money that we would have foolishly wasted. I hope to meet Rhonda someday to give her a huge hug and kiss. Less ... More

I am glad that my wife talked me into using Duffy Realty. I told her that we did not have time to mess with selling our house ourselves and she said that there was no more work involved. She was right. Duffy walked us through it and we did save a ton of money. Well really, we shouldn't have been paying someone an arm and a leg anyway so I really don't know if save is the word.

Not only did I pay only 1/3 of 1% on the selling side for the realtor fee, but I also received $500 back for using them as my buying realtor. I dealt directly with Michael Brooks on the buying side. He is awesome and I highly recommend him if you use Duffy Realty.

I have sold many homes in my lifetime. Most of the time I regretted the agent commission that I agreed to because my homes sold in less than 5 days. I listed my house with Duffy Realty and I sooned learned that the MLS does the trick. It is the mover and shaker, not the agent. Don't get me wrong Rhonda Duffy is brilliant and she does what she says that she will do but it really is not that complicated.

When I heard that my company was downsizing the first thing that crossed my mind was the fact that I have a huge mortgage. I called the agent that I bought the house with and leanred that they charge 6% of the sales price to sell it. I knew there was no way that I could afford that and then be able to move even to an apartment and have any money left. My friend at work had recently purchased a house using Duffy and she thought they had a different pricing model for selling. I called and found that was true. I could afford to sell my house. When I got an offer, I admit I was scared. But when Duffy sent me the how to on what to do, I simply followed their instructions and my house went under contract. It was simple. I am glad that I taught myself that I know how to do something and that I used Duffy Realty. My company did not downsize after all but I feel better that I don't have a huge mortgage anymore.

Listed home, but didn't sell
We listed our home with Duffy Realty. Before I signed with Duffy I went over some very important concerns of ours with their representative. One being the day it goes live on the listings that it's easy to find pictures and info on our home. The other being when we receive an offer that Duffy helps go over the contract and helps with recommendations on what to do as far as accepting and countering. I was assured by the Duffy representative the day I signed with Duffy that one the house and pictures would be very easy to find and two that Duffy would look over the offers and suggest counter offers and recommendations. Neither one is true. The first day our home was listed Duffy listed it as a short sale by accident, it stayed listed like this for 2 days. You couldn't find pictures of the home for almost 3 to 4 days, which I was not told that it would take that long before pictures would be up. We just received an offer and all Duffy did was send us a generic sheet that everyone gets on what to look for and very generic recommendations. This is also not what I was told by Duffy when signing up. Your really on your own and their is no help. Not to mention trying to get a person on the phone is almost impossible. The saying you get what you pay for as NEVER been more true. I would never do this again, you could do what Duffy does on your own a lot cheaper. Also I have emailed Rhonda Duffy twice and called her once and left messages, never received a phone call or email back. I strongly advise not listing here. Less ... More
Response fromRhonda Duffy
I am disheartened to read that you are not happy. That is never my intention. I have audited your file, our notes, our phone system log, our agreement with each other and my email looking for your emails to me which I don't personally have. The photos don't shock me, we told you that it could be up to 7 days for them to post to all websites after they hit the MLS. I am clueless about the short sale although, the price was right. As far as our contract standards, I find long phone calls, a contract that we worked very hard get binding 10 days after you listed due to some buyer agent difficulties and that you closed in 30 days AND that you saved $6,000.00. Kathleen, I will take to heart your complaint and I will certainly brainstorm on how these kinds of misunderstandings happen. Our written agreement is 12 years of eliminating client confusion and misunderstanding. Again, it is never my intention to upset a client and we deeply appreciate your business. Less ... More

The Duffy team is absolutely outstanding! We initially reached out to Joshua Thomas, who arranged to meet us at a home we wanted to see. After viewing it, he asked if we had any other homes nearby we might be interested in, and followed us there to show them. From then on, we were introduced to several other members of the Duffy team when Josh was unavailable, each one showing that they are competent in every way, that they truly do care about you, the client, and that they want to help you find the right home. Behind the scenes, we were kept abreast of all where everything was during the process, with super response times for every question or concern we had. At the end of the day, buying a new home can be a stressful and/or confusing process. While we had a few setbacks finding the right house, the Duffy team was there to help us each and every step of the way. We would certainly like to thank Joshua Thomas, Jennifer Hemmer, Paula Caruthers, Michael Brooks and Greg Bergdorf for all of their hard work. Less ... More
