Working for You!


In addition to your sincere time and effort we felt a “connection.” We saw more of you in two days than we saw of our previous listing agents in three months. We felt like your customer service was nothing short of EXCELLENT. We always felt that calling you with a question was more than welcome. You made us feel like we were your “Million Dollar Customer” when we know that we were far from that. You have a friend and customer for life.
~ Danny and Claudia G.
Carol Knott was wonderful to work with! She is a very gracious lady, whom I would have no trouble whatsoever working with again! Thanks Carol for all your knowledge and help keeping me headed in the right direction! I hope we weren't too hard or too demanding to work with!
~ Sandra J.
Carol Knott did a very professional job from day one. The brochure was beautifully done, and their comments and suggestions were courteous and professional. Our calls were returned promptly, and the showings were done with plenty of notice. We have and will continue to recommend Carol Knott.
~ Mary D.
We are so grateful to have sold our house exactly one month from the time we signed the listing contract, at a time of year when one would expect the housing market to be slower than usual. From the placing of the “For Sale” sign in our front yard to the closing of the contract on the sale, Carol kept us informed and guided through each step of the process. What we thought would be a stressful experience, especially during the holidays, turned out to be really enjoyable, and we attribute this to Carol’s helpful advice and encouragement. We feel very fortunate to have benefited from her skills. Many thanks especially to Carol Knott for wonderful service and a job well done.
~ Harold and Carole B.
I do not know what we would have done without Carol. She always returned my calls and was very helpful. Actually, when I called her from Georgia and told her what we were looking for, she e-mailed me information and pictures. We ended up purchasing one of the homes she e-mailed to us. I think the firm is very fortunate to have an agent like Carol.
~ Dale G.
Most excellent!
Carol far exceeded the level of service considering that my quest for a home was over a year. Carol’s patience and resourcefulness make her the best real estate agent I have had the pleasure of doing business with.
~ Mr. Jose M.
Carol Knott met and exceeded our expectations of a real estate company. Every avenue was explored and every thought was taken in by your company, and thoughtfully processed. We sincerely appreciate everything.
~ Kirk and Sandy N.
Carol is efficient and well organized. She always had a list of homes ready each morning for our itinerary. Carol did not try to show us homes outside of our stated price range unless we specifically requested a showing. Carol is extremely personable and an effective communicator. ‘Communicator’ should be Carol’s middle name. She has a cell phone and a pager; she is diligent in checking and returning each days’ messages. We plan to hire Carol as our Realtor again when we move from The Woodlands.
