Here is what our clients are saying about CharlestonRealEstateStats.comPatty Scarafile, CEO Carolina One Real Estate
There were a couple of reasons that my home went from showing to closed in only seven weeks. One of the most important was allowing DOUG HOLMES to use his knowledge and skill to price it right, therefore placing it on his well-priced list. Doug is definitely an 11 on a scale of 1 to 10.
Doug Holmes has assisted me numerous times with pricing homes correctly, advised on negotiation pointers, and provided a variety of charts/graphs to help both my sellers & buyers make the best decision. Doug is a gem and one I will always refer to for that additional edge in my business.
Thanks for supplying the great real estate stats. There is no perspective missed by the selections of charts provided. They have consistently reflected an excellent snapshot of where we are today, where we have been, and the trend comparisons have provided excellent insight to myself as well as my sellers and buyers. The well priced list has been a powerful reference for sellers in pricing their properties to help insure timely sales and for buyers to help recognize some of the best opportunities.

With dedication to accuracy, professional mathematical knowledge, and much persistence, Doug Holmes has masterfully developed a statistical method to evaluate saleability and valuation, and probability of the sale of homes.

Because of Doug’s teaching and guidance, I have watched many agents increase their confidence in showing clients how to make good decisions. For any agent who wants to maximize their confidence and their value to clients , I would recommend that they subscribe. It is well worth the time and low cost to learn and use Doug’s tools.
