Byron Ford was fantastic to work with. Extremely knowledgeable of the market and extremely flexible to work with.
Would meet me at anywhere on my schedule even though it was well out of his way for him, including weekend mornings.
He care of all the last minute closing details that I did not have time to do. He even paid for some it out of his own pocket. His energy is breathtaking to behold.
I would recommend him to family and friends in a heartbeat. Oh...and BTW, sold our property for 10K over asking price.

Byron is fantastic
My husband and I were 1st time home buyers, a few years ago we began our home search with Byron whom I found on line on a local listing.
Ultimately at that time we just weren’t ready to commit so Byron helped us with a rental.
This year when we were ready to begin our search, we immediately went back to Byron because we remember him as attentive, responsive, has incredible local knowledge, and is an expert in his field.
We knew we would have the smoothest process with Byron and we were right.
Byron was always available to answer and facilitate the offer and purchase and sale process. He and communicated by text and it was hughly helpful.
Everyone told us the home buying process would be dreadful, but honestly it was piece of cake with Byron and his team.
In 6 weeks time we found THE house and closed. Everyone at Berkshire Hathaway made this a smooth process and always made feel comfortable and well taken care of.
I highly recommend Byron and Berkshire Hathaway Home Services to anyone and everyone.

Byron made the process so easy
Byron was great to work with. Going through such a difficult time, Byron made it an easy process by accommodating my brother’s and my busy schedule.
We had little or no time to bring the house up to FHA standards, so Byron was willing to use his resources to help us out.
It was a pleasure to work with him and I would certainly recommend him to anyone who is in need of a realtor.

Excellent Job

Byron, 

Just a comment and a "Thank You” for your efforts with the sale of our home  (09/30/14) in West Warwick, RI.  I have never seen a home sell in less than 40 minutes before.

It was a combination of efforts, between seller’s house prep work  as readiness, (prior to our first meeting),  but none of it would not have been possible without your sales expertize, pricing,  web exposure, customer interface, and most importantly, it was also much to do with your expertise and timing in sales. We met with you on a Saturday, discussed expectations and signed an agreement.  Within a week, you posted our West Warwick home to be posted on multiple Websites. The Open House was then scheduled for a Sunday, 2.5 weeks out from our signing as the first web posting, and within three days of posting, (two weeks before the open house), two families requested immediate on-site appointments for the following Sunday.

  The First Appointment was at 10:00 AM, the second was at 10:40 AM, and with that, an Offer was made from the first appointment, and after minor adjustments, acceptance was made on the same day. So I guess one could say that the house sold in 40 minutes as the length of the first appointment.  We relocated to Sun City, Florida, and closed on our West Warwick home on September 30th.   

Thank you for your quick responses, and keeping us informed. 

Sincerely,

Linda and Bill CliffSun City, Florida

Thank you Byron
When I couldn't sell my river front lot, my long time friend Leo said I should call Byron Ford.
Leo said " he is a really incredible realtor ".
He was sure right on the money,  you did an great job marketing and selling this very difficult property. 
Thank you so much for all your hard work.
Al Walker
Incredible Realtor
Were were faced with the difficult task of selling our house in New Bedford
while living in New Jersey.  Managing a long distance sale appeared to be a
daunting task.  After researching realtors to assist us, we enlisted Byron
Ford’s help.   Simply put he did the job.  From the time we first met and he
gave us a realistic appraisal of the pluses and minuses of our property and
suggested at what price he felt the home would sell, Byron was on the job.  He
marketed the home extensively, kept us informed of what prospective buyers were
saying and suggested improvements that could help increase chances of a sale. 
Byron was always in contact and never failed to quickly return phone or email
communications.   Bottom line, he got the home sold and took care of all the
details whether it be arranging for smoke detectors or assisting with the
closing. While we were 250 miles away, we always felt that we were  being
professionally represented and in caring hands.   We highly recommend Byron if
you are considering selling your home.

As both a business owner and property owner I recognize the excellent value of the service Byron provided in renting out our investment property. He exhibited professionalism throughout the process and filled the property with a very well qualified tenant in less than a week. I could not have asked for a better experience!

Excellent Value in Byron
Byron helped us very much during a financially challenging time;

Byron got our house sold during a very difficult financial time for our family. With my wife out of work, we were struggling with two mortgages and needed to sell our condo as soon as possible. At first, we had this property listed with a different agency. For over 6 months there was very little activity on it and very few updates from the real estate agent. We felt like we were not being told the truth. Luckily, someone we knew recommended Byron. So we gave him a call. The very next day we were able to meet with him in person. Byron was direct, friendly and assured us that he would get our condo sold. We both left him feeling a renewed comfort that things were going to work out and he was going to get the job done. My wife especially liked that he was very nice, very clear and we could tell he was honest. In a very short amount of time, Byron called us to let us know we would be signing a purchase and sales agreement. We cannot thank Mr. Ford enough for what he was able to do for us. We would strongly recommend him, without reservation, and look forward to dealing with him again, should the need arise. You could not ask for a better real estate agent than Byron Ford!

Susan and Dave
Byron is the best!!

Byron is joy to deal with

Byron was my buyers agent when I bought my first house and my realtor when I sold my house. I won't use anyone else. Byron is truthful and tells you how it is and how to do it if you want to reach your expected results. Most realtors will blow smoke up your butt to make you happy. No smoke with Byron. If you want results and results you will be happy about. Well then go with Byron Ford.

Byron is a great realtor
Byron helped in my long process of buying my first home . And trust me I was not an easy client , I would send him multiple text messages of houses I liked and he would get me in there within a days time . And if he couldn't it was only due to the seller or mortgage broker they were using. He also gave me great advice on certain things I should stay away from in homes we saw. He wasn't just about selling a house quickly . It was about finding the best house for me and my family to grow in . I would recommend him to anyone who needs an agent who will be on their side to look out for their best interst. Never once did I feel pressured or that I was bothering him in any way with my multiple questions and text messages daily ! 

Monica Vieira
Helped me buy
My husband and I are first time home buyers with many questions. We worked with Byron who helped us to find our home in a little over a month. He is knowledgeable of the market, well known with other agents, very professional with a great personality. If you are buying or selling a house he is who you want to contact. My husband and I have crazy schedules and he was always able do showings around our schedule, and you will get a quick response from him whether it be through phone call email or text message, and pretty much any time of the day holiday or not. He loves his job and you can tell that just from meeting him. Thank you Byron for making a stressful experience to go as smoothly as you possibly can. 
Kaitlyn Amaral
Helped me buy
Byron has helped sell and purchase homes for my family and I for the fifth time now. His level of responsiveness to questions is immediate. Day, night, holiday or weekend, he recognizes the needs of his buyers and sellers can come at any time and is always available. I trust his advice in every decision I've needed to make and cannot think of another realtor to navigate the home sale and purchase process other than Byron. He is constantly working, providing resources to fix issues that arise in the process and does it almost instantaneously. You will not regret using and recommending Byron for your real estate needs. His energy, dedication and enthusiasm is contagious! Also has a phenomenal support staff at Weichert to keep him focused on servicing every need of his clients. Choose the leader!

Byron sold our house for full price, and found us a house within a week. Tirelessly has worked on our behalf to meet deadlines and demands. He is a great agent and we will recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell any property large or small. You will not be disappointed.
A great agent
If you’re thinking about listing your home and you’re not sure which agent to list with, may I suggest that you list with Byron Ford? The right listing agent matters, let me tell you why.

Byron did his research, knew the market, and was able to showcase my house to get the right buyer through the door. I had two offers close to the asking price within 24 hours of listing with Byron. He answered my calls and questions, provided me with clear guidance throughout the process and remained extremely focused on getting my house sold and closing the transaction. The end result was a happy seller and buyer.

Selling or buying a home is a personal and meaningful experience and you want to work with someone you can depend on do the right thing. I have worked with several agents before, there are only two whom I would recommend without hesitation, and Byron is one. If you want a listing in the MLS and a sign in the yard, you can get that anywhere. If you want a trusted partner, you want Byron
Fern Silva
Byron is the best !!
Byron was essential to our move to New Bedford, and truly was one of the best realtors we have ever worked with (and we have bought and sold 9 houses in four states!). Byron has a detailed and intimate knowledge of the real estate market in New Bedford and the surrounding area. This includes not only a deep understanding of the values of land, property and location, but also the people and professionals that are involved in real estate transactions. This includes the mortgage brokers, banks, title clerks, other agents and realtors. He also knows the home repair & service market in the area. Even with all that experience and knowledge, Byron has an even more important quality - he genuinely cares about his clients. The most important job he has is to put you in the right home in the right neighborhood. He is personable and engaging, while maintaining a professional demeanor - not an easy thing to do. I wholeheartedly recommend Byron Ford as a realtor.

Byron working with you was nothing short of fabulous! Your knowledge, integrity, and responsiveness (my calls were always returned within a few minutes) made this process easy. You were well prepared and enthusiastic while providing me with the facts and advice I needed to make informed decisions. It's not every realtor that can sell a house the day it goes on the market... you did! I think everyone walked away happy. Thank you!

I wanted to take a moment to give you my sincerest Thank You!!! There aren't enough words to express my gratitude for all your hard work and persistence in making sure my property sold. Honestly grateful,

Thank you
Today we closed on our beloved Farm which had been in our family since 1922.  It is a very unique, beautiful, historical, well known property in Acushnet, MA.
This was a very complicated listing, but Byron Ford was on top of all the problems, answered all of our calls immediately, and was able to solve many issues between us and the new buyers and the Town of Acushnet.  We are so happy with the new owners and know they will preserve the Farm and love it as much as we do.  Other realtors could not bring this sale to a close, but Byron did.  I would highly recommend him for all your housing needs.  Sandra Quintin

Love working with Byron


In September of 2012 I finally decided enough was enough with living in a home that was too big for a single older woman.

   I contacted Byron Ford from Weichert Realtors.

  Within 24 hours Byron was at my door with his thoughts of how much my home would generate in today’s market.  Under his gentle guidance two weeks later we were having our first open house.  To his astonishment and mine 17 families viewed my home and an offer was placed on my home.The process was lengthy, however on January 31st the deal was closed and to my astonishment I walked away with a hefty check and left all the worries of homeownership behind.  I am grateful to Byron for making this process painless and smooth.  He is a very professional individual who genuinely cares for his clients.  He gives his all and then more.  

Thank you Byron for all you did for me. Sincerely, Jo-Ann Soares

Thank you
From the first moment I spoke with Byron was impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. We felt he understood what we were facing and todays market. Byron always kept us informed and would get back to us within minutes, he is always on the go and there for you. Byron is very personable and pleasant, he is definitely not the new kid on the block he knew the answer to every question and helped with every step of the way.Byron always answered our questions within minutes. Byron did an outstanding job marketing our home he presented great pictures on the internet, magazines, and networking the listing. I feel due to this we had numerous showings and great outcomes to open houses. Byron made our home selling seem very smooth even through the sticky situations he provided a solution. We would not hesitate at all to recommend Byron to anyone wanting sell or buy a home. We appreciate the depth of his support though his personal dedication in getting the job done. Thank You Byron, 
Maria and Moe Hamcha
Thank you Byron

As working parents of 2 children we didn't have much time, and a tight budget.  Byron made us feel as though we were the most important people on his list!  He took the time to show us every house that we asked to see...within a day or less...any day of the week, any time of day.  Byron was patient, attentive and caring as I had to bring my 2 rambunctious children along for the viewings.  A phone call was always answered and information was given as soon as it was available. I would recommend Byron to all of my friends and family and hopefully we'll work together again someday.

Thank you

I just wanted to say thank you for making my home buying experience seamless. I appreciated the patients you displayed throughout this process and your positive attitude to keep moving forward. Also, your flexible schedule made showings very possible with my changing work hours. I look forward to working together again, and knowing that you have all the right connections in this business to get the job done. Thanks again and wish you and your family a Merry Christmas.

"Well, here's to your great customer service!  I'm certain that, and your charisma, and your business ethics, are bringing you success in real estate, in what many believe is a difficult market.  You seem to be proving many of those in your industry wrong.  Keep up the great work!

Warm regards,
Michael Goes"
Warm regards

There are no words to express how grateful I am for you. I had no idea that buying a home could, and woul,d turn out to be so stressful. I’m pretty sure that this was one of the most stressful and frustrating things I have ever done. I can’t even count how many houses I dragged you to, but you stood by me smiling in every one as I kept finding things I did not like about each and every house. Even when I wanted to give up and started to believe that it was hopeless, you never did. I could always count on you to keep me positive and remind me that I would indeed find the house that was right for me. When we finally did find the perfect house we were met again with a whole new set of challenges. I really just wanted to give up. You were like an angel taking care of everything for me and always with a smile. I never felt like a burden or like I was asking too much. You were always there with a smile.  Finally the day came and I was able to buy my house, and you were still there smiling reminding me how you always knew I would have my home.
        I love my new home and know that my family and I will have many happy years here and make many happy memories. I owe all of this to you. You truly are amazing and I am so grateful that you were there for me. I don’t know how I would have done any of it without you!  Michelle Haplren

 

Thank you Byron


"How lucky could we be? New to town, new job, crazy short time to find a home…and who should we meet but Byron Ford? He helped us navigate the waters beautifully, steering us to the right home. He really understands what it means to live in and be a part of New Bedford. His exuberance, energy and commitment are unmatched in any real estate agent we have ever known, and he was far more than an agent. He really was a guide. Schools, restaurants, shopping and local institutions were all on the itinerary. He was always a professional, but somehow translated that into a personal commitment to make everything right for us. We have the perfect New Bedford home and already feel like a part of the community, and we owe that to Byron Ford.Thank you Byron.”  

Randy & Brenda Weis

I would recommend him to all my friends seeking to either buy or sell their homes.
Roger Andrews

I would recommend Byron to all my friends

Byron was always available to show our home  no matter the day or time. In addition he was

navigating the home selling and buying process these attributes are very much  needed
and appreciated.....great great great realtor!!! You will not be anything but pleased.
Missy and Z. Zerek

Byron was always there for us !!


Byron has been wonderful and very helpful as well as informative. This purchase of Benjamin Tripp Rd in Westport has been  " smooth sailing"
right from the start. We really lucked out with Byron.
Tammy and Joseph Faris

Smooth sailing all the way


Twenty years ago, I was a security guard working my way through college when I met you, Byron. In spite of my youth and position, you treated me with respect and courtesy at all times. I knew then that I was dealing with an honest and decent man and I have never forgotten the kindness which you showed toward me. When I saw your name on a "for sale" sign outside a house, I had to reconnect. We were just about ready to buy a house and I knew that I had to have an honest buyer's agent advocating for my family. 
        
 Byron, at no time during the long process of our search for a home did you lose patience. I often marveled at the fact that you showed me houses in my price range with the same enthusiasm that you showed when discussing far more opulent homes. You never betrayed any sort of mercenary motive. You answered all of my questions with the same sort of respect and courtesy that you extended to me twenty years ago. I decided to entrust you with my family's fate and you never let me down. You represented us as if you were a member of the family. If I live to be a thousand years old, I will not have lived long enough to thank you sufficiently for your help.
         
I may not have a great deal of money, but of late, I've found out what true wealth is. My friends and family, to include you, Byron, are all people on whom I can count thoroughly. Sure, we got a great deal on a house. Our happiness cannot be measured in dollars and cents. It can be seen when my children laugh and play in their new home. It can be seen when my wife puts her heart and soul into a home that is truly hers. It can be seen on the rare occasion when I get to relax with a beer and a cigar on my deck, watching my boys play on our freshly mowed lawn. Thank you for everything, Byron.
Regards,
Tom Gallucci
Thank you, Byron

Dear Byron. We cannot thank you enough for everything you have done for us. You made buying a home for the first time a pleasant experience despite the challenges we faced. You found the perfect home for us and we couldn't be happier!!
Byron, you are hard working, dedicated and very personable. We couldn't have asked for a better
real estate agent.
Thanks again,
Jeremy & Nikki

You are the best!!


Thanks so much Byron. You helped us the best of anyone could have. I would refer you to anyone needing a real estate agent.
Rudy Carreiro

You were the best!

Hi Byron....I have to say...wow! You have done more work and had more showings on my condo in less then 30 days then all of the last 4 realtors combined.
Thanks so much for all your hard work.
Deborah Fernandes

Im so impressed


Hi Byron. You were awesome and Mike and I can not believe how quickly you sold our house. We expected months and it was weeks. You did a great job on the listing, marketing and selling our home. You were wonderful to work with. We are most appreciative of all your hard work.
You totally exceeded our highest expectations!
Anne and Mike Cabral



Byron exceeded our expectations
Paul and I would like to extend our appreciation to Byron for finding our new home and making it all happen...against all the odds! Byron is professional, knowledgeable and will go the xtra mile to make certain that his clients are completely satisfied. He never once said "impossible" ...His business experience and genuine compassion for his clients allowed our impossible dream to become possible. Thank you Byron for being Fairhaven's best Realtor !   Paul and Gail

Byron was great to work with. He is dependable and always a pleasure to be around!
A pleasure to work with


Hi Byron.....Bell and I just want to thank you again for your hard work in selling our home. In this tough economic time, to have our home in agreement in less then seventy days was incredible. You aggressively marketed our home and was always a phone call away. You were always open to our thoughts and ideas. Then to top everything you helped us negotiate a great deal on our new home. Thanks again
Steve
Thanks again


I have worked with several realtors over the years and I can tell you Byron Ford and his support staff at Weichert are the best.
He sold my home twice in 60 days and faced several issues with the city to make this deal happen.
He fought tooth and nail to get me thru the issues and cut thru the city's red tape.
Byron got in done and closed on time. He also helped me with my first purchase of a beautiful new construction.
I would recommend to anyone thinking of selling or buying. He is the best agent I have ever had work for me.
Carol Monteiro

Byron is the best !


As a first time buyer at 21 yrs old I needed someone who I could trust to guide me through the ins and outs of buying a home especially one in foreclosure.  My Mom had met Byron and suggested calling him.  That was the BEST move I made.  One day I called to see one home and that day we ended up seeing 4 more Byron never complained just a pleasant smile and positive attitude. 

He was always there when I called and helped with some issues that the other not so nice realtor we dealt with threw at us.  I have recommended him to three other people and they were also thrilled with his knowledge, professionalism and care that he gives his clients.  I also dealt with Mel and Stacy at WEICHERT, REALTORS® - Mel Antonio Group and they treated me like I matter and were also the best to work with. 

I know why Byron is the top selling agent two years in a row.  I would list with him again. 

Thank You Byron!

Danielle

Thank you Byron


To whom it may concern: Byron Ford has been a pleasure to work with throughout the entire process of evaluating and renting my condominium.  From day one he had a very good knowledge of the current housing market and was very honest about what my selling expectations should be.  When I made the decision to rent my condo for a while instead of sell it he was extremely helpful in marketing the property and getting all the correct information and paperwork.  Within days he had multiple calls about the property and quickly set up a family to rent it.  Byron did all of the legwork including screening all potential renters, showing the property, and completing the appropriate legal paperwork.  He also guided me, as a new landlord, whenever I had questions on what to provide from my end.  Byron's screening process is flawless, as the tenants turned out to be perfect.  Recently, my current tenants gave their notice, and Byron lost no time in listing and showing the property and getting another tenant on board immediately.  The current tenant had some issues with his move out date which conflicted with the new tenant's move in date.  Byron orchestrated the juggling of this issue quickly and easily, and I didn't even have to think or worry about it. Byron does his job quickly and effectively.  He is always just a phone call, text, or e-mail away.  If I e-mail him I know I will have a response within 15 minutes.  If a problem arises I know he will handle it.  I have not had to worry about my property since I know it is in Byron's capable hands.  His services are worth every single penny of commission that I pay him.  I would not hesitate to work with Byron again, and would refer him to friends in need of a realtor. 

Thank you,
Susan Viera
A pleasure to work with!


Hi Byron
I wanted to let you know how grateful we are to you for helping us find  our new home. My sister and her husband were completely right with everything they had said about you when they recommended me to call you as ours buyer's agent. After my first conversation with you I knew you were going to make this as painless as possible. You are so dedicated in your work and it showed in all that you did for us. I am going to recommend you to everyone and anyone that is looking to buy or sell a house.
You are truly a wonderful person and we thank you so very much.
Sincerely,
Tanya Torres and Shirley Torres

We are so grateful !


Hello Byron, I just wanted to let you know how pleased I was with the work that you did while selling my house. From the first day that I engaged your services, you provided me with your espertise in the realty business, your relentless pursuit for buyers and a satisfactory, quick sale. You made the whole process painless.
You are one class act !
Thank you,
Christine Parkinson

You made the process painless

Byron Ford helped us find our first home. He was available day and night to answer the many questions that challenged us.
He is a man of his word and did indeed stand by
them. Byron made purchasing our first home an amazing experience we will always  remember. He made something we could only dream of come true.
On a business and  personal level Byron is a fabulous man to work with. He really understands people's needs and wants. He is an up front kind of guy, who you can really trust.
We were lucky to have had the pleasure of working with him
Andre and Laura Perry

Made our dream come true


Based on my experience as both a seller and a buyer, I am truly impressed by Byron Ford's ability as a realty agent.
 
In this very tight housing market, Byron was able to find a buyer for my property within 15 days. He later helped me search for another property and working together, we found a great deal in a wonderful neighborhood.
 
I would say Byron's success is a result of his diligent, knowledgable and personalable approach. His meticulous care for details, his keen perception of what I wanted and his grasp of the market turned a wish into a reality.
 
He was available and patient, and above all ..honest. Working with him was not only a success, but a pleasurable experience.
 
Joyce Goodman

Truly Impressed !


My husband and I had just started to seriously look into buying our first home this winter. We met Byron at the first house that we went to look at. He was the Sellers Agent and we were immediately drawn to his great personality and his matter of fact honesty. During the showing of that house, he explained a lot of different things since I had never bought a house before and didn't really know how any of this worked. Since we didn't have a Buyer's Agent, Byron asked if we would be willing to give him a chance. We really liked him so we agreed. We had been watching one particular house that had been on the market since we began browsing for houses in the summer, so now that we had an agent, we asked Byron to arrange a showing. After looking at this house, we decided that this was " the one"
that we wanted to buy. Byron was so helpful and walked us through exactly what needed to be done, step by step. Once we put in the offer, we immediately found out that there were a few " issues" with this house, which explained why it had been on the market for so long. After taking another look at the house, we decided that our dream home was worth dealing with the aggravation of these few " issues" that needed to be cleared up. In the meantime, we kept looking at a bunch of other homes, just in case something didn't work out with the one we really wanted. Byron stood by us every step of the way, even though he had to deal with one hurdle after another before we  finally got to the finish line. He is very easy to get in touch with and he always got answers to all of the questions we had as quickly as he could.
Although it took a little while, we finally able to close on our new home a few weeks ago. Everyone involved agreed that this was one of the most difficult deals that they had done, but Byron never got discouraged, always stayed on top of everything and made sure that we were updated any time a new detail or problem popped up. Byron worked extremely hard for us and we can't thank him enough !  After working with him for a few months, it is abvious that Byron loves his job and goes out of his way to please his clients.
 
Byron is wonderful and we would recommend him to anyone !  As a matter of fact, my mother recently decided that it was time to sell her house and based on our very high praise of Byron, she agreed to give her listing to him
 
Thank you for everything, Byron !
Sincerely,
Melissa and John Rebocho

Byron is wonderful !!

Happy birthday Byron and thanks for your hard work and dedication when you were my listing agent while my home was on the market and I was in Delaware.. You are a good, honest, well motivated agent who really cares for todays sellers and buyers !  If anyone can sell a home, that would be you.
Fernando Branquinho

Honest and hard working

We have been through several agents before Byron approached us with our expired listing.
I told him I was done with agents....an hour later, I gave him a chance to present  a marketing
plan and scheduled a second meeting. I listed with him for both sale and rental of my home in
Rehoboth. Byron is the hardest working agent I have ever meet, but even more important to me and my wife...the most honest.
We had more activity and offers in four weeks then we did in two years.
My wife and I both agreed we would use Byron again for sure and would recommend him to any of my friends buying or selling.
Tadeusz Sztykowski

Byron was the best agent we had

My fiance ( Steven Tabares ) and I began looking for a house in early February. We were looking for the qualities you need to be there to chose that special first home...location, price, nice sized yard, and good overall condition. The both of us were pretty adamant on having all these qualities and settling for nothing less. Byron was the agent for the first house we went to see.
We were so pleased with his professionalism and knowledge about the home buying process that we decided to stay with him thoughout our search. Being a first time home buyer, Steve and I knew nothing about the whole process. We must have seen over 25 houses with Byron. He was always easy to contact and very flexible in accompanying us to all showings. If we had a question, Byron would always respond back to us quickly and with the information we needed to go to the next step. There were never any surprises ! We formed a great relationship with Byron and recommend him to anyone looking for a home. We finally found our first home in August...6 months later. Thank you so much Byron for being so patient and understanding. We are so very happy with our
new place.
Sara A. Cato

Very Happy With Our New Home...Thank You Byron

Having dealt with a few less-than-enthusiastic realtors in the past, having Byron as our buyer's agent was a pleasure. Byron tenaciously sought out houses for
our viewing. He graciously carried out all the legwork of the home buying process and thoroughly explained every step along the way. Byron exceeded all our expectations and made our first home buying experience the joyful one it should be. My wife and I are happy to give Byron our highest recommendation.
Gratefully,
Phillip and Cheryl Batista

Buying experience was a joyful one with Byron's help !

Byron sold our home and saved our sanity. My husband and I were sold a mortgage that became much too much for us to afford. We knew we had to make the difficult decision to sell our home before it got really bad. Byron had represented my sister in her purchase of her home and I admired his passion for the job. We asked Byron to sell our home in a very difficult situation. He didn't give up and made every attempt to sell at the best possible price. It would be an understatement if said my husband and I were not really stressed out.  However Byron remained positive and saved us from foreclosure. Not only did he sell our home but at times became the voice of reasoning too. It is my experience that he truly enjoys his career and will anything possible for his clients.
Sincerely,
Mr. and Mrs. C. Jones
Saved Our Sanity

We were in a situation where our home was not being shown. I had been through two other realty companies and house not sold in a year.We spoke to Byron Ford and decided to make a change at the end of the last contract period.
Honestly I was very disappointed in the efforts of past realtors and did not expect Byron to be any different.
To my very pleasant surprise, Byron took charge. He made positive suggestions to make my home more saleable, he did not spare our feelings...he made suggestions he knew would help sell our house.
Aggresssive but not pushy, he is a real salesman. I say that in the best sense of the word.
He always kept an ear open and sought out all potential buyers. We sold it in less then 60 days !!
I am not easily satisfied. I was with Byron Ford.
David Glicksman
I was pleasantly surprised

I was a customer of Byron's in the search for my first home. I wasn't using a realtor at the time and I was totally confused. I meet Byron and we chatted about my needs. He gave me some great advise and I descided to use you him as my buyers agent to help me find a home. What a difference !
He helped me find a nice home, advised in the mortage process and saved me a couple thousand in closing cost by watching my back.
It was a smooth process and I was pleasured with my decision to work with Byron.
I would recommend him.
JK
Thank you !!

Byron Ford was my buyers agent when I was buying from first home. I found Byron to be a pleasure to work with and very attentative to details. He worked hard to find me the perfect home.
Byron made me totally comfortable from our first meeting to the closing. We found the perfect house within a month and went smoothly to closing within 30 days.
I would recommend him if you are buying or selling. No one will do a better job for you or work harder. He gave me 100%. 
 
 
Tyler Dubois
 
PS....and the Keurig coffee maker he gives as a house gift is the best !!

Great Job Byron

My wife and I bought our home several years ago and like so many other people today, we fell on hard times. Our first home was now worth less then the mortgage and we were close to losing it. Byron talked to us about a short sale, he negociated all the terms with the bank. The botton line is...he sold our home, saved us from foreclosure. We walked away with no debt to the bank and to boot he helped find us a new place to live.
 
The service and advise he  gave us made my wife and I very comfortable thru a  very difficult situation.
 
Byron is personable, knowledgable and more important then anything, he has
a genuine compassion for the needs of his customers.
 
In short he busted his butt for us and we will be forever grateful.
 
When we are ready to buy, there is no other realtor I would call.
He has my strongest recommendation
