Terry & Pixie James

"LaVonda was one of the best agents that I have worked with.

I was building a home with Capshaw Homes and the agents I was working with left in the middle of the process, without verifying and confirming all the requests I had for my new home. LaVonda was assigned to my home and from that point forward she did everything in her power to make sure that I got everything I wanted in my home buying experience. Every time I texted or called her she made herself available for whatever I needed. She was a true professional and I would recommend anyone who is buying a home to work with her." Source:


LaVonda was great with her referrals from the lender down to security systems.

We were under a time clock and we found just what I needed! She’s also awesome with negotiations. I got what I wanted and more. Thank you Lavonda. Source:

I was faced with an issue with trying to get qualified for the price range that I was looking for due to my student loans.

I met LaVonda when I gave up & started looking at rental properties. She asked me about buying, I explained my situation & she linked me with her loan officer. LaVonda as a Realtor showed me that it was more than just a job to her that she really cared about my family's needs & did everything she could to help me get in a beautiful home. She was very professional, she was there when I needed her just to ask silly questions, she understood by paranoia with this being my first time buying a house.

"I met LaVonda through friends.

They highly recommended her. She was out of town at the time & they insisted I wait for her to return. I was impressed with her professionalism. I'm from another country. I did not have any knowledge about purchasing a new home in the US. LaVonda is very knowledgeable. She worked with me every step & made sure I understood all the details. I found LaVonda very efficient in every aspect. She worked with me as if she was purchasing the home for herself. Thanks to her I now own a wonderful townhouse. LaVonda is excellent. I would definitely recommend her." Source:
