It is my pleasure to recommend Bruce Hendley as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation. I moved to the Atlanta area and wanted to rent, until I became familiar with the Atlanta area. After about 1 ½ years I decided to buy, but had several areas that I felt would be suitable areas for me.

Bruce had an initial meeting with me and took diligent notes regarding my specific needs in a single family home as well as my budgetary limitations. He is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the relevant search engines and real estate databases to quickly find me a variety of homes for sale in the areas I was willing to consider, along with a few other areas that I wasn’t aware of. He did not waste my time with homes that were out of my price range or not in line with my needs. Bruce knows the Athens area like the back of his hand, however was willing to go outside of the Athens area to accommodate my needs. After patiently showing me multiple homes, we were able to find one that I fell in love with. Ironically, it was in an area that Bruce recommended, that wasn’t even on my radar.

Based on Bruce’s knowledge of the real estate market, he was able to negotiate a contract that was a good deal for me, while also insuring that I didn’t lose the house to other potential buyers. Ironically, I ended up purchasing a home about 20 miles outside of Athens, closer towards Atlanta.

I found Bruce to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if I were his only customer, although I know that was not the case. He returned all phone calls and emails the same day. I never felt neglected or unimportant. He is also highly personable with an engaging personality.

I am pleased to recommend Bruce Hendley to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. If I ever decide to move again within this area, he will be my first choice in real estate agents.

"My wife and I made the decision to move from northern Wisconsin to the beautiful city of Athens, GA. We knew nothing about the local real estate market, or even methods of home construction employed in the area. Bruce Hendley dedicated significant time to showing us homes that fit our wish list, and patiently answered our many questions. He truly seemed to take a personal interest in our search, and greatly exceeded our expectations. Bruce was always very personable and professional, and made the process of buying a home much less stressful. I highly recommend Bruce to anyone buying or selling a home." Rick Tillmann

Again, thank you for your help!!!
