Agent Testimonials

"I work with real estate agents on a daily basis, and Don Swearingen is one of the best! He offers an incredible depth of knowledge, having been a builder himself. We are relocating from out of state, and Don has been unselfishly generous and flexible with his time, an enormous help to us, as our time – in state – has been limited.   With his great knowledge of the area, Don has been an invaluable resource helping us to narrow our focus and prioritize our time. He is an absolute delight to work with, and he represents the utmost in honesty, integrity, and sound advice. We gave Don quite a challenge because I, too, have been in the home building industry for some 40 years. Consequently, my wife and I are very discerning, educated buyers.  If you are fortunate enough to have Don represent you in the home buying process, you will not be disappointed, as he will be your staunch advocate and trusted advisor."   L. and C.
