Rachel Lewis has cultivated an incredible team of real estate professionals who really know how to Spark and Hustle for their clients. I started working with Rachel while trying to sell my house last spring. I had just fired a prominent realtor in my area who overpriced my house, stuck a sign in our yard and told me to bury a St. Joseph in the garden. Twenty wasted days during an extremely hot sellers market and not a single offer. Fortunately, I remembered Jessica Carnes, an extremely talented interior designer who stages houses for the Lewis and Kirk team. She shared that every single client of Lewis and Kirk is offered a full-service, professional, top to bottom staging, and it’s all included in their standard fee (the same fee you’ll pay a big box agency to plant a sign in your yard and get you listed). The staging piece is crucial to selling a house, and these ladies know how to create the allure your house needs to get offers fast. They maintain a 2,000 sq ft. storage space chock full of furniture and home decor that rivals your local Home Goods store. You can call around, no other agency offers this all inclusive service. After firing my first realtor, I interviewed six realtors in my home, before selecting Rachel and her team, and that was after a personal recommendation. Staging for most realtors is moving a few items of furniture around, or hiring and charging for an outside service.
In addition to the magnificent work Lewis and Kirk did to revamp the interior of my home for photos and showings, they immediately dialed into our families need to simultaneously find a new house in a highly desirable zip code. While Rachel was busy selling my house, she paired us with Amanda as our buying agent. Amanda could not have been more patient, kind, and encouraging during this incredibly chaotic and stressful time in our lives. She has a naturally calming nature about her which was exactly what we needed during our often frenzied search for the perfect next home. She traveled with us far and wide, day after day, showing us homes. Never pressured us to move forward on something that wasn’t just right. In fact, I credit Amanda and Rachel for helping us to keep our priorities in focus when our goals were feeling out of reach. We were encouraged to stay the course and keep looking until we found the house that checked all the boxes. And once we did find that house, every bump in the road was cleared to make sure we could securely land the deal. These ladies moved a couple mountains (or barn sheds in our case) to make sure we could acquire our best choice house.
There are many other bonus services provided by this gem of a boutique agency, all of which were invaluable to us in the selling and buying process. Rachel and her team will WORK HARD and SMART for you. Just check out their Instagram. Rachel’s weekly market updates help clarify what is happening in this rapidly changing real estate market. Calming to know someone truly in the know while going through this process. This group loves real estate, and they love working as a team.
