Tom & Leah – Client, Seller – August 2013 Worked with Rick Hale, Real Estate Consultant

Rick Hale and his team were an absolute pleasure to do business with. My family and I were relocated as a result of a job transfer and Rick was one of three Real Estate agents I was referred to for the listing of our home. After meeting with Rick we knew there was no need to interview additional agents. Rick very quickly completed a thorough analysis of our home and the surrounding market, took the time to walk us through all of our options and helped us price our home exactly where it needed to be based on our area and current market activity. We listed our home and had multiple competitive offers the very first day and went to contract at our full list price in one day! From effective staging to the finest of transactional details, Rick and his team proactively addressed every question we had before we could even ask it! We have participated in Real Estate transactions nine times over the last 14 years and Rick Hale and Associates was far and away the best partner we have ever worked with. Rick and his team have the knowledge, expertise, honesty and professionalism few others possess in the Real Estate industry today. We could not have asked for a more seamless process and cannot thank Rick and his team enough for making our transition a smooth and positive experience. I would refer Rick Hale and Associates to my closest friends or relatives in a heartbeat!


Robert M. – Client, Buyer – October 2012 Worked with Joel Madden, Real Estate Consultant

Joel is definitely one of the best real estate agents that I had the opportunity to work with. His positive demeanor, professionalism, and knowledge of real estate practices make the home buying process easier. I would highly recommend Joel as a real estate agent.


Mathew M. – Client, Buyer – February 2013 Worked with Joel Madden, Real Estate Consultant

Joel is very courteous and professional. He is always on time for scheduled appointments and brings all the important information for the prospective properties of interest. He values his clients’ needs and time. Joel was very quick to return phone calls and submit offers in a timely fashion, and this ultimately helped secure my first purchase. I would recommend Joel as solid choice for all your realty needs. Joel will work diligently on your behalf to get you what you want. I have worked with several agents over the years and Joel has been the best.


Kristin S. – Client, Buyer – February 2013 Worked with Joel Madden, Real Estate Consultant

My fiance and I were first time home buyers, not really knowing what we were doing, and extremely picky about location during a time of low inventory in our preferred neighborhood of Grant Park. We were impressed by Joel's honesty, so he quickly became someone we felt we could trust. He patiently led us through the process and always put our best interest above everything else. He never tried to push us into going above our budget or making a decision we weren't ready to make, yet he was very quick to submit offers when we were ready. He ultimately found us a house that was exactly what we wanted, and he got us in to view it before anyone else had a chance. If it weren't for Joel's quick response, I believe someone else would have snatched up our house before we got to it. Thanks, Joel!

Kevin B. – Client, Seller – June 2013 Worked with Connie Spaziano, Real Estate Consultant

Just a note of thanks to you and your office for an absolutely smooth and pleasant experience in the sale of my downtown condo.  You were the consummate professional from our first meeting in your office through Friday’s closing. The Downtown Atlanta market presents some unique challenges, and I can’t imagine a better strategy of marketing, pricing, and regular updates than your approach. That you came so highly recommended speaks volumes. Rest assured, I will pass along the same high praise.


Bdzan – Client, Seller – May 2014 Worked with Joel Madden, Real Estate Consultant

Joel Madden provided us with excellent service in the listing and selling of our home. His knowledge of the area and expertise was apparent throughout the process and we are totally satisfied with the end result. We have already highly recommended him to several friends who are placing their homes on the market.

Samantha R.– Client, Seller – May 2014 Worked with Joel Madden, Real Estate Consultant

Joel was so great to work with. He is efficient and effective! My house sold in a week and for more than asking price. Couple those measures of success with Joel's responsiveness and concern for his clients, and the experience was better than I could have ever expected. I would hands down recommend Joel to anyone in the Atlanta area needing to sell or purchase a home.


Mrs. D Scott – Client, Buyer – April 2014 Worked with Joel Madden, Real Estate Consultant

I have puchased many homes in different geographical areas over the years. Joel is truly the best realtor I've encountered. Prompt & very responsive to all questions & concerns - even the stupid ones! He knows his neighborhoods & properties in great detail. Honest, candid and still manages to make the process fun. If i picked one of his top five characteristics, I would say he listens to likes, dislikes, and individual personalities so each successive round of properties he showed me clearly took my preferences into account. No high pressure tactics, very patient and I could always see he was working to meet my criteria - not just selling/buying focus. Willing to be patient and invests time in getting things right. Joel's a true professional & I heartily recommend him without any reservation.


Andy C. – Client, Buyer – February 2014 Worked with Joel Madden, Real Estate Consultant

Joel is knowledgeable and very responsive. He understands that moving quickly is the key to buying a house in town in today's market. He was with me every step of the way from the first time I met him until the house was closed. I really can't say enough good things about him. I have recommended Joel to my friends and family.

Marcia T.– Client, Buyer – February 2014 Worked with Joel Madden, Real Estate Consultant

In recent years, Joel has helped in locating and closing on three investment homes. His personality and skill are a perfect foil for my own lack of the same. He gets me into properties quickly, responds to my phone calls in a timely manner and (best of all) Joel has a no nonsense, non dramatic professionalism when dealing with other agents and with loan officers. I have, myself, dropped the ball on a property or two (dragging my feet on making a decision comes immediately to mind) and Joel is ready and willing to pick up and move on to another listing. He has helped me make money, while at the same time teaching by example dignified and elegant behavior during some challenging real estate showings, and he does all this for the benefit of a client who has a habit of saying hillbilly things like, "It's only sticks and bricks, Joel." I could not imagine a finer buyers' agent.

Ana & Mark D. – Client, Buyer – August 2013 Worked with Connie Spaziano, Real Estate Consultant

We turned to Connie at the recommendation of our daughter and son in law who bought their first home from her. My husband and I have bought and sold several homes in the past but this home purchase was different. This time we were looking for our forever home. There’s no question that every home purchase is important but a forever home definitely raises the stakes. Not only did it need to be the perfect fit, but when found, we needed to know that our agent was going to get us all the way to closing. Connie recognized that this home was not going to be found in a “weekend outing” but was going to take months of searching. Her patience in that search was invaluable and so was her professionalism. A key example of this was her ability to let us form our own opinion of the homes we visited. The simple fact is, what’s perfect for us, isn’t necessarily perfect for her or someone else. We had worked with past agents that got us wrapped in their excitement about a home from their perspective. Connie recognized that choosing the best home for us was our decision and that her job was to protect us from making a costly or poor investment by presenting us with all the facts about the pricing, comps, quality of the neighborhood… etc. Her attention to detail and that she had an entire team in place with a proven track record of providing quality service and efficiency in getting the deal closed without delays or problems was invaluable. In short. It was the best home buying experience we’ve ever had. Our only regret was not having used her on all our other home purchases.
