“I am a South Carolina Realtor and chose to work with Don as I did not know the Greenville area. I wanted a Realtor who only works with Buyers to represent me and Don was the man. He was great to work with. Very knowledgeable of Greenville real estate and made the buying process smooth. I always felt that my best interests were in his sights. Thanks Don for everything.”
We were moving from Portland, Maine to Greenville without any real sense of the area. We found Don on the internet – dumb luck – as we were trying to get a sense of homes available in what we’ve learned is called the Upstate.
I moved into a hotel in Greenville while my wife was prepping our home in Maine for sale. She was scheduled to come down for a preliminary house hunting trip in two weeks time. It typically takes us months to make any major decision, so I was envisioning her visit to be the first of many frustrating and stressful weeks, looking at house after house, in more neighborhoods and towns then we could reasonably be expected to remember.
When Don & I first met, he asked good questions to learn what was important to us. He set up several appointments for me to get a lay of the land, and was a keen observer of my reactions to what I was seeing. He tested a little above and a little below target, to help narrow the field. The next time we toured homes, he had really been able to zero in on those which I found to be of interest. By the time my wife arrived, he had a well thought out plan, so as not to waste her limited time in Greenville.
We found and bought a home we really like, in a terrific neighborhood, during her first visit. This is unheard of speed, for us. Don knows the area well. He can quickly determine what to show you without overwhelming you. And, he’s a likeable guy – which makes the effort so much more enjoyable. He has our highest endorsement.
Don also followed up after the close, checking in to see if there were any questions or concerns with which he could help. I needed advice on where to rent a particular style u-haul, to pick up a lawn tractor I had just purchased. Don showed up with his own trailer to help me move it.
If you’re thinking about buying a home in the Greenville area, do yourself a favor, talk to Don Wessel.
“Don was a tremendous help in the recent purchase of our home. He was very patient with us as we were only looking to purchase in Pelham Falls. When we found our dream home it happened to be a for sale by owner( FSBO) that the sellers did not want an outside agent involved in the process. Knowing that we needed someone who would keep our best interest at heart during the transaction Don agreed to work with us exclusively. It was a comfort knowing that even though the sellers didn’t want an agent involved we still had someone representing us. After having worked with different agents in the past we can definitely say Don is one of the best and we will recommend him to all of our friends!”

“Don will be the best real estate agent you will ever work with. He is meticulous in his search for property meeting your characteristics, and knows the Greenville area inside and out. If you are moving from out of state you cannot go wrong with Don.”
“Don is the agent you want working for you if buying in the Greenville area as he really knows this part of the state. He is a very, very patient man and allows you to set the pace. He will make sure you do not buy in the wrong neighborhood or pay too much for a property. After a few days with Don, I consider him a friend rather than an agent. I highly recommend him.”
“Love’s. We relocated from Northern VA and wanted to partner with a buyer’s agent to ensure quality of service – we were very pleased with Don’s focus to satisfy our realestate needs. Don has great knowledge of the area he serves and was very attentive and accommodating to our specific requirements. I would strongly recommend Don to anyone looking for an agent. After our purchase, we reached out to Don for advice on home improvement project and found him very responsive and willing to assist.”
“George & Jane from South New Jersey. The other reviews cannot express how we really feel about Don, not only as a buyer’s agent, but a friend. We found Don on the internet, one phone call and we immediately new that he was the agent for us. We were in the upstate on vacation as well as looking for a home for retirement. We found a home and in the short time we were there he coordinated the necessary inspections and survey so we could be there for them. When we had a snag with the sellers about moving out of the home on closing day, he was right on top of the situation. We highly would recommend him.”
“Don was a great help for my first home buying experience. He explained everything in detail from day 1 all the way to closing. I did not know how hard or easy it would be to buy a home, but Don made it extremely easy. I would recommend him to anyone interested in buying a home in and around the Greenville area,”
Below is an email I received from a client in February 2010. This is why I love what I do and realize the impact I have on people’s lives in helping them find a home.
I am back in MA today (Sunday) and I miss Greenville already. Rob is driving back to SC with my car this Thursday. My husband is flying in on Wed. of this week and will stay until Tuesday of next week. I am trying to arrange to come back this weekend too. Although this is not a formal thank you, I cannot send this e-mail without letting you know how much I have appreciated the help you gave to me and my family. I consider you a friend and not a broker. You have allowed me to make changes in my life that will have an impact (positive) for a long time. I will be forever grateful. Our plan is to fly into SC at least one to two weekends a month. Come Sept. of this year, I hope to have a job lined up in SC and then I would stay there. Rob and I had a wonderful time, setting up the house we enjoyed every moment. I could go on and on, but now I am trying to get to bed and beginning my work day tomorrow. I am just so happy about the home, I have never ever been happier.
I have added just a few remarks here. If you would like to speak with a current or past client, please let me know.
