doreen murraytv

We first met with Liz Young a year and a half before we ended up listing our house.

Liz followed up with us over the course of that time but was not pushy or aggressive. Once we were ready to make the move, she advised us on what to do to get our house ready. She is very knowledgeable about the real estate market and made suggestions, always keeping our budget in mind. She went above and beyond for us, even shopping at Lowe's with us to help make purchases, and was able to recommend contractors to make repairs or upgrades that were needed.. Her marketing of our home was very professional. Our house sold in 4 days at a price we were happy with. We would highly recommend contacting Liz to help sell your house. Selling a home you have been in as long as we were, was, at times, very stressful, but Liz helped us every step of the way.

Liz is probably the best realtor I’ve ever known.

She has a great professional and personal approach. Her extensive knowledge of the South Charlotte area helped us find the percent home for us. Whether it was driving around Ballantyne trying to find the right community or helping us pick out the right plan once we decide to go with new construction, she helped get us into the perfect home for our family. She was well respected from everyone who knew her and I couldn’t have asked for a better home-buying experience. I would recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the south Charlotte area!

While each has been unique she manages to always have all the right answers and is able to provide different options for solutions no matter what roadblocks you come across during the transaction process. Aside from her expert knowledge of both the buying and selling process she also has an upbeat genuine personality, never pressures her clients and always has their best interest as top priority. Thank you, Liz!

petersonw93

In 2022, it is hard to find real professionals in almost any industry.

When we started our rental property search, I wanted to ensure we had an agent that worked swiftly, and understood our needs so that we could get to work and find the property we wanted. Liz responded promptly, and diligently. She listened to our specific needs, as investors, and got to work right away. Throughout the closing process, Liz never dropped the ball even once. It is clear that her client-centered approach has led her to success. Highly recommended!

Tanner McElreath

I am a Realtor in Northern Virginia who owned an investment property in Charlotte.

Liz helped me buy it 5 years ago and when it was time to sell, I never ever thought of using anyone else. She is on top of the market and really knows her stuff. I would have been happy with a certain price but Liz suggested we do that agreement at a slightly higher price. Then right before going on the market, based on conditions on the ground, she suggested a still higher price which is where we launched. Well, she was on target. Multiple offers later we sold even higher. I was reading into the Charlotte market some of the conditions in my market but all real estate is local and Liz accurately and correctly explained Charlotte conditions to me. Simply the best.

MidAtlantic IRA LLC Joseph J Facenda Jr.

Liz is an absolute gem and was so wonderful walking us through the purchase of our first home.

Liz did a super job from the start to the finish!

Csaba C

I am a Realtor in Northern Virginia but an investor in markets outside of my home area.

I contacted Liz to help me find an investment in Charlotte and she did a great job. I trusted her completely. I actually never physically saw the property but she provided everything I needed to have to make the right decision. In fact, we actually contracted for another property and after the home inspection, we voided that and moved to the one I have now. Since I wasn't there, it would have been easy for Liz to push the first one through if she was an agent just after a deal. But she is not. Ethics and integrity are important to her. She cares about her clients and I can not recommend her enough.

Liz was unbelievable throughout the entire home purchase process.

My wife and I were planning to move to Charlotte from Boston last year, and Liz took 2 days to show us all the different neighborhoods and showings so we have a good feel on where we want to live. Once we relocated, Liz continued to tirelessly help us find the perfect home. She was patient in resolving numerous issues throughout the closing process. We are extremely happy that we got to work with Liz and will absolutely recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

Easily one of the best experiences purchasing real estate. Liz is so knowledgeable and does a wonderful job getting to know her clients and exactly what they are looking for. Additionally, Liz helped us refine our search and pick the best option in a very difficult and competitive market. During sale and through post sale, Liz has stayed involved and remained an advocate for us and helped us with various aspects of the purchase, closing and the move itself. She has also stayed involved in helping with final punch list issues with the builder. We would absolutely endorse and recommend Liz for anyone looking to purchase a home or condo in Charlotte.
