In the 9 corporate moves we have participated in, this is the most satisfying and positive home relocation experience we have ever had. From beginning to end, Sandra Petermann was professional, exceptional in her service and her engaging personality makes working with her a pleasure. She took our basic ideas and filled in the details to make it all work. Sandra was able to take what we were looking for and included things we did not think of, important when you have a short window to find a home.
The coordination of the inspectors and closing was extremely efficient. Everyday Sandra informed us about the status of the relocation search. When you’re new to an area there are a lot of details a person does not know. She went the extra mile by helping us contact suppliers for the pool maintenance, sprinkler care, lawn and tree care and tips and tricks for car registration and license. Sandra found a company that was able to find flooring to match our original flooring and integrated a new tiled foyer. These are examples of the extra effort Sandra puts in that provided us with a piece of mind and a much less stressful relocation.
We are happy we chose her and enjoy the results of her efforts every day. We have recommended Sandra to other corporate staff relocating to the area and they in turn are equally happy with her.
My wife and I recently relocated here to Houston through my company. Sandy came on a high recommendation from a co-worker. Hesitant because it required a few more steps to use her, we gave her a call. Right away we knew that she was right for us. Instantly we felt as though she genuinely cared and it’s because she did! She was extremely knowledgeable about the areas, schools, doctors and amenities and gave us honest feedback on all of the above. To say that she went WAY beyond her responsibilities as a realtor would be an understatement.
This is the third home we purchase in as many years and if we added up all of the positive experiences from the past, they would not hold a candle to the experience we had through Sandy with this purchase! Without a doubt, Sandy will be used to sell this house and will come highly recommended from us for anyone that we hear is moving into the area.
We love our house and gained an invaluable friend along the way. We have absolutely no regrets!
Thank you Sandy!
When we relocated to the Houston area from our beloved south Louisiana, we knew it would be a huge change for our family of five. We were not a corporate relocation. Just an average family that needed to be closer to the bulk of our business. Sandy treated us as if we were the most important client she had ever dealt with. We were not buying a mansion by any means. Our family just needed a home that would meet all of our needs and the list was quite extensive. No question was too big or small. If it was a concern for anyone of us, it was a concern for Sandy. After looking at dozens of houses in two different areas of Houston, she helped us find our castle at a affordable price for our budget.
We can not say enough good things about Sandy. She even brought over a set of sheets the first night we were here because ours were still buried in boxes! Our family will always be grateful to have been referred to to Sandy. Anyone that has her for their realtor will be more than taken care of. Sandy is a joy to work with. We will definitely use her in our next move.
I cannot express enough my sincere gratitude to you for everything you did for me during my job relocation from Indiana to Houston.
Moving a family is a huge endeavor, especially when the move is cross-country and into an unfamiliar area. Securing a new home, in a timely manner, was my main objective from the first day I arrived in Houston. With my wife 1200 miles away, I had to totally rely on you. I had no clue as to school districts, neighborhoods, shopping, churches or distances to my new workplace. Fortunately, you were there to take care of me.
From the very first meeting we had, it was obvious that you had my family?s best interest at heart. As soon as I told you my criteria and priorities for a new home, you went to work.
We looked at many homes and it was amazing how you knew exactly what to look for in each and every one. You were able to point out so many different things that I am sure I would have overlooked. In doing so, you made feel very comfortable and assured.
No matter what question I had or what house I desired information on, you were quick to answer with knowledgeable and pertinent information. You listened intently and instantly understood what I was looking for.
Sandy, you are without a doubt the consummate professional. Working with an agent who completely understands the business is a necessity. Having an agent who truly cares about the client?s future in their new home is a blessing. I had both!
We found a new home in three weeks, which considering how particular I am is remarkable. As we walked through the home together, we both knew this was the perfect home for the Wallin family.
Closing was a breeze and now I own a beautiful new home. Stephanie, the girls and I are thrilled with the house. We have you to thank.
Please stay in touch and again thank you for everything!
In July of 2012, my husband, daughter and I relocated to The Woodlands from the Baton Rouge, LA area. Sandy came very highly recommended by a mutual friend, so we contacted her to begin our quest for a new home sometime in April of 2012.
There are just not enough words to describe what a wonderful job Sandy did for us, truly going above and beyond our expectations for a realtor. She really did CARE about finding the perfect home for us, and tirelessly searched the available properties and took us around to look at each and every one…sometimes more than once….as we struggled to find the perfect “fit”for us.
Her understanding of our needs and wants was spot-on, and she cheerfully helped us through what would have otherwise been a very stressful process for all of us. In fact, when she walked into the house that we now call home, she KNEW this was the house for us. I had not even seen the house, but hurried to town to take a look. And, indeed, the minute I walked through the door, I knew I was home.
I would not hesitate to recommend Sandy to anyone I know needing a realtor. She truly is the best of the best.
Both Dick and I want to thank you for the outstanding service you provided to us when we built our home in The Woodlands.
As we were unfamilar with the area we were concerned about selecting the right neighborhood in which to build. And, as we had never been to Texas before we had no idea of the complexities of real estate here.
Sandy, you were there for us. You are the most knowledgeable and committed real estate professional we have dealt with any place in the country. We would not hesitate to recommend you. In fact, we go out of our way to do so.
In the spring of 2014 Sandy helped my wife and I with a corporate relo to The Woodlands, TX. We have had a wonderful experience. Because we had plenty of previous moves, we had high expectations and she took care of everything. Within a couple of hours she zeroed in on what we were looking for, nailed our price range, and a year later we are stilled thrilled with the new home. Sandy provided real insight into the market and local pricing, represented us in the negotiations, and we think both sides ended up with a good deal. She also helped us make contacts for all the support functions (mortgage, title, insurance, etc.) and knew which local suppliers could provide value and service. Since we closed she has been a resource for translating local Texas traditions and regulatory practice. We have since met several other clients she has helped in the last two years and they are all as pleased as we are. You can’t go wrong with this LSU Tiger fan!
Sandy is simply put, wonderful 🙂 My husband works for Exxon, so when the new campus was being built up North, we started looking for houses. We worked with 2 real estate agents and neither showed us anything we liked. They both were so focused on selling us a house at the top of our price range that they didn’t listen to what we wanted. After months of searching, we were starting to get really discouraged.
A friend from my husband’s work recommended Sandy, and from our 1st conversation, I knew she was going to be solid gold! She asked us what we were looking for, listened, and then said ‘yep I’ve got the neighborhood for you.’
The next weekend, we met Sandy to look at a couple of houses. We started in the neighborhood she had in mind, and by the 3rd show we’d found our house! We continued looking all over north Houston for due diligence, but quickly realized Sandy took us to the right place from the start.
We bought that 3rd house directly from a builder. Sandy negotiated ~$4-$5k in free upgrades in addition to our awesome price + reductions. And she didn’t show us one house outside of our budget! She offered constant tips, recommendations, and general advice to help us get comfortable in the area. We loved working with Sandy; she shows genuine interest and caring for us. And we still (1+ years later) keep in touch.
Sandy is all you hope for in a real estate agent but don’t believe actually exists 🙂
I was very fortunate to have someone refer Sandy to me and have since referred her to numerous friends and colleagues. She drove a hard bargain with our builder to get us the best price possible. During the building phase of our home she was skilled in spotting potential construction problems and her referral for a home inspector was quite valuable. We would have been lost in our home construction without her as our advocate (working directly with our builder). Sandy is friendly, approachable and takes your best interests at heart.
Sandy was definitely the right agent for us. Her knowledge of The Woodlands and Spring area lead to selling our house quickly. She was very prompt in answering our many questions and her financial expertise is phenomenal. The whole processor of selling went smoothly and Sandy even helped with the aftermath of Closing.
Having relocated four times in the past fifteen years, I have learned one very important thing. That one thing is to select the “right realtor”! I have never met a person like Sandy, much less a realtor like Sandy. She: listens, she knows the market, she understands what is important to you, whether you are buying or selling. She helped me find the right house, right neighborhood, right price all in two Saturdays. She has mapped out a strategy after your initial conversation, because she knows time is often of the essence. Moving from Colorado to The Woodlands was a big move for us, but because of Sandy and her “excellent service” it has been one of the our most pleasant experiences. If you want to know if this is a real person, my name is Dale and Sandy will give you my telephone number. Then we can talk about this person, I now call friend.
We have just moved into our 8th home and Sandy Petermann-Williams is by far the most professional realtor we have ever worked with. We actually used Sandy 2x. She helped us purchase our home in The Woodlands, TX and also helped us sell it when we retired and down-sized. Sandy has a tremendous knowledge of the real estate market and also establishes a very quick assessment of her clients needs and wants. She very easy to work with and quickly responds to her clients’ e-mails etc. She actually stays one step ahead of concerns etc. Sandy has a definite knack for real estate and has been recognized not just by her clients but by Remax too! She is a recipient of several awards from the company as well.
Sandy did a great job helping us find a house in the Woodlands. She knows the area extremely well and was able to tell us about everything from stores to schools.
She answered all of our questions in a timely manner and learned the style of house we wanted. Since Sandy knew our style she was able to help us sort through all the house options.
Lastly, one of the really nice things about Sandy is that she never pressured us to buy a house. We were not sure when we were going to buy a house, and Sandy never made us feel like we needed to hurry us and buy a house. She just showed us options and when we were ready to buy, she helped us through that process.
I have worked with Sandy on 5 transactions – 4 purchases and 1 sale. In another deal I did out of the Woodlands she found me local help with good references for that city.
She has always been a great partner when doing business. She responds quickly to all needs, brings great suggestions and tactics, really knows the territory – pro’s and con’s – and is open and supportive with her ideas and thoughts. On the sale transaction she helped schedule touch up work and found the right team for each need. She even would meet them at the house when I couldn’t be there to get the work done.
In addition, she is a delight to work with. After several years and several deals, she is the only person I would work with on my transactions.
I heartily and sincerely recommend Sandy to all. She is the best.
I have bought and sold several homes with Sandy’s assistance and would highly recommend her. She is extremely knowledgeable with The Woodlands and surrounding markets and provides great advice for maximizing value in both buy and sell situations. Sandy has a proactive and helpful approach and quality contacts to assist with all aspects of the process. In all my real estate transactions, I’ve not found another realtor who provides the quality of service and level of responsiveness I’ve received from Sandy. In my opinion, she is top tier in her profession.
I have used Sandy for the past 9 years on multiple real estate transactions. She has always been energetic, enthusiastic and very knowledgeable. Her friendly personality makes her very easy to work with. I would suggest to anyone needing a realtor to seriously consider using her as your realtor.
We genuinely found Sandy to be an extremely capable and all-round expert realtor. We got to know Sandy through a friend and word-of-mouth, and we were extremely delighted with the experience from start to finish. While I would say finish, I should say Sandy’s support goes way beyond the purchase and continues to support us till now, including picking up our mails from the house since we’re not living there yet. We never got an impatient feeling from her throughout the process, she was always accommodating and responsive. She helped us make up our mind on few variables first, to narrow our search then provided a list of options that exactly fit the criteria. We ended up loving one, and we closed from there. Sandy was able to put us with services in the area, and her office helped set us up for services as we were still overseas. You can consider her as your trusted advisor in the Woodlands. She gave us advise and access for schools, orientation, driving, etc.. She is direct, honest, very knowledgeable and resourceful, respectful and professional. What impressed me most is her responsiveness, clarity and timeliness, always accessible. She continued to be above any expectation even months after closing the transaction. We cannot be more appreciative and satisfied of her services, we worked with many realtors during the last 16 years, and Sandy and her company are the best by far.
Very knowledgeable about the market. Easy to communicate with and very responsive. Always had an answer to my questions or concerns. Excellent experience selling my home with her!
Sandy was professional, efficient and personable. I would highly recommend her. My father died and my mother and I had come back to Texas to sell their home. She was sensitive to our situation and our timeline. She helped us from Texas while we were in Washington and everything went smoothly.
Sandy was extremely responsive which made the purchase of our home very smooth. We purchased the home while living in Virginia, so Sandy ended up having to stand in for us on several occasions, lessening the stress for us. She was extremely knowledgeable of the area and we couldn’t have been happier with her skills and willingness to help (also ensured that we were happy and loving our new home). We closed over a month ago and I’m still asking for local advice, because I trust her recommendations and advice.
Sandy was extremely professional and made the sale of our home a very easy experience. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.
Our home search with Sandy began while living out of state. She really listened to our needs and communicated with us almost daily with information and updates. When it came time to meet, and look at houses, we were really prepared to make an informed decision on a home in our one week timeline. Not an easy task with four opinions, two of which are our teenage boys, who now refer to her as Aunt Sandy:) A true professional in every sense of the word, and the most genuine person I’ve ever met. Buying or selling, she’s the agent to call!
I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed working with you on the purchase of my house in the Woodlands. You came highly recommended, and now I can see why. You were very professional in the way you handled my situation and my individual needs. I always felt like I was your most important client, and no matter how much time I needed to visit many different homes until I found just the right one, you were willing to devote the time necessary to make it happen for me.
Once I selected the home of my dreams, you so helpful in getting us to the closing as quickly as possible. When I needed you to meet the inspector, the builder or the movers at the house, you were always willing to do whatever it took to ensure the home selection, the home purchase, and the subsequent move-in went smoothly without a hitch. for that, I am deeply grateful.
Thanks again for all your help. I would welcome and actively seek the opportunity to work with you again.
We not only bought a house with Sandy’s help but due to a very quick relocation we also sold a home with Sandy’s help, all in about 9 months. She was personable, helpful and always available to us. We can attest to her knowledge of the area, her willingness to help with the many crazy demands of buying and selling a home and her skills in negotiating us a great deal on both ends of our transaction.
Sandy simplifies the process of selling your home in any way she can. She is very dedicated to helping prep the house, answer any questions you have. She scheduled any service that were needed to create a very appealing list and showing. She does all of it with a very professional, yet caring approach. I would recommend her to anyone – selling or buying.
