I highly recommend Woods and Shores!

Our property deep in the woods on a small lake was not an easy sell, but Rod knew just how to position it with potential buyers. His photographs really showed the tranquil beauty of the place. Best of all, he protected our interests as sellers throughout the transactions. When the first buyer pulled out, he immediately got hold of one who was waiting in the wings and made the sale. I highly recommend Woods and Shores!

…Kathy Sparks is one of the finest.

I have bought and sold homes in some of America’s garden spots and worked with top realtors across the country and Kathy Sparks is one of the finest. She skillfully, navigated the contract, keeping my interests as seller in the forefront of the deal.  She was always available by phone, returning my messages promptly. Considering I was an out of state seller, and closed from a remote location, she e-mailed all contractual documents for signature, this was of the utmost importance; she had my back all the way to closing, and expedited the entire process smoothly. Thanks Again.

Top notch Real Estate!

Top notch Real Estate! Very experienced in the industry and highest level of integrity in their agents! Fabulous knowledge of the area and property available. We worked with Rod and he was so helpful in explaining the process and getting us comfortable and confident to make great decisions. We love the outcome, and couldn’t have found a place more fitting for our life style and needs! He was there from beginning, all the way to the end of the process, ensuring everything was in place and being done correctly! He took the stress out of spending a lot of money and buying a second home – who isn’t looking for that?! Rod, we thank you in our hearts for finding you, and helping us find our fabulous cabin on Ross Lake! We “say hi” every time we pass your business!

I want to thank you very much…

Rod, I want to thank you very much for making our buying experience very enjoyable. As someone from out of the area, I was very concerned about finding a realtor that we could trust and have confidence in. You certainly met those expectations and then some. Within 30 minutes of meeting us, you knew exactly what we were looking for. You did not try and sell us something just so that you could make a profit. When it came to the negotiation phase of our purchase, it was very clear to us that you were representing our best interest. I am a relationship person. I like to do business with people that I have a relationship with and can trust. I am very pleased to add you to that list.

Kathy was such pleasure to work with.

Kathy represented us on the sale of our cabin, which was in our family for 43 years. It was an emotional decision for us, but one made easier because we knew the business side of the transaction was in great hands. Kathy was such pleasure to work with. She was always available when we needed her, always returned emails and phone calls promptly, and was always willing to go the extra mile. We live 2 hours away from the property, so if something needed to be checked on, she was willing to do it for us. She worked tirelessly to get the cabin sold. My family will always be grateful for her hard work and effort.
