Don’t take our word for it.  Check out what a few of our clients have to say.

“Patient, knowledgeable, tenacious”

Chris Makowski of the Andy Bovender team handled our home search in the summer of 2013 and we couldn’t be more pleased with the process and the outcome. Chris is patient, knowledgeable, tenacious, and a good sounding board. We love our home and we wouldn’t have found it without Chris’s help and guidance.

“Forever grateful for their hard work”

The Andy Bovender team was beyond phenomenal!! The best part about working the team was our realtor Audra. She was always focused on answering our questions, giving us her honest opinion and finding homes that met our needs. Furthermore, she always answered every call or email no matter what time of day or night it was. Her professionalism, mentorship, knowledge, honesty and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. I never felt that she was trying to sell a house to me, but that she answered my questions and helped make the best decision for my family. We are expecting our first child in December and Audra was more than patient with my wife and her questions, in addition to providing great advice for being a mother. She was very easy to talk to and had real conversations about life, sports, and being a new parent. I definitely consider Audra a friend and would highly recommend her to anyone that is buying a home.

I also want to say thank you to Michele. She walked me through each line of the paper work to make sure that I knew exactly what was going on. As a first time home buyer it was all very overwhelming but Michele and Audra were so very helpful and making our home purchase as smooth and easy as possible in which I am forever grateful for their hard work. There is no doubt in my mind that I will be recommending Audra and team to all my friends, family and definitely will be calling them for our future real estate needs. -D. Pickett

“By far the best realtor we have ever come across”

Kim Trouten with the Andy Bovender team is by far the best realtor we have ever come across. She helped us secure a lot and build a new home, and then sell that home a few years later when we relocated. Both times she made the process as easy as it could be, and building our home was actually enjoyable as she helped with everything along the way. Kim is knowledgeable, responsive, professional and kind. If we could take her with us to every city in which we relocated, we would do so. I would highly recommend her and the team to anyone looking for a realtor in the greater Charlotte area.

“Had a contract on my house within 48 hrs of listing!”

Very impressed with Andy Bovender team. Very prompt and responsive. Kept me informed and made weekly calls just to check in. Had a contract on my house within 48 hrs of listing!

So incredibly accommodating

Traveling from out of state to tour homes and neighborhoods was stressful, but the Andy Bovender team, Debbie Hooker and Kelly Stewart in particular, were so incredibly accommodating. Clearly, I was a priority and my time was considered to be valuable. They met with me on weekends when necessary, and were able to do quite a bit with the limited schedule we gave them. Additionally, they negotiated hard for us when we found the right house in the right neighborhood, and truly were our best ally in negotiating the complex mortgage process in South Carolina. I won’t say the process was stressfree, but we definitely had the Andy Bovender team fighting for us every step of the way. Thank you, Debbie and Kelly!

“We were very impressed”

Every agent was so specialized in their particular area. We were very impressed with Kim’s negotiating skills and ability to handle everything we needed done. I would highly recommend Kim and the entire team!

“Sold in under 4 days”

We loved working with the Andy Bovender team. We used their team to sell our house in East Charlotte. Our house sold in under 4 days with several offers. Andy helped us negotiate the best sale terms. We used April Harbin for the purchase our new home in Southwest Charlotte. She did a fantastic job keeping my husband and I informed at ever step of our home purchase. What a professional team they are and the sell and purchase of our homes were seamless. – L. Sexton

“Critical in our home search”

The Bovender team was critical in our home search. Andy gave us realistic and honest advice regarding our investment. He was not only extremely knowledgeable of the area, being a Baxter resident himself, but was extremely easy to work with – M. Hermens

“I cannot imagine having received better service”

My agent, Kathryn Miller, was superb. She provided guidance, insight and helped me understand the selling process from end-to-end. She is confidence inspiring, and is very easy to establish a rapport with. I cannot imagine having received better service. Also, to that end, she (as part of the Bovender Team) has an excellent support system. Every person in her group that I dealt with was tremendous. I’m confident that the reason my home sold so quickly is because of the combined efforts of this very talented team.

More of our client testimonials.

We had heard about the Andy Bovender Team when we decided to sell our home. Now having just sold our home, we must say that the reputation was well deserved. We appreciated the responsiveness, advice, and resources the team brought to the effort. Our home was sold in one week

Chris Makowski and his team were exceptional from beginning to end. They were professional, knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. Would highly recommend Chris and would certainly use him again.

Kim Trouten and her team were beyond amazing and so knowledgeable on getting me the house I wanted at the perfect price! I absolutely would not have had a chance at getting under contract on my house without her help, knowing the market, and contacts with other agents! Her team made the process of under contract to closing as smooth as possible and I highly recommend going with Kim on purchasing or selling your house!

Kim Trouten and the entire Andy Bovender Team have provided nothing short of exceptional guidance, outstanding assistance, and uncompromising support through several real estate transactions. We have truly felt that we had a partner by our side who has always acted in our best interests every step of the way. I would recommend Kim and the Andy Bovender Team to anyone looking for a home in the area. – T. Ferber

Andy’s team was great to work with and walked us through the entire process. They helped us to view different available properties well in front of our proposed purchase date. They did not pressure us at all but found us such a desirable home that our time table was pushed forward. We purchased a builder home and they walked us through all of the details including helping us to choose which items to select to add long-term value to our home.

The Bovender team is the best of the best. Buying a home can be a stressful process, but we actually enjoyed our home buying experience because of Vicki Ford and Michele Smith. They were kind, patient, knowledgeable and attentive to us every step of the way. They even went above and beyond to share local contacts with us and to make us feel most welcomed to the area. I would recommend them to anyone who would like to enjoy their home buying or selling experience. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making our dream a reality!

I worked with Kathryn Miller and Monica Carlyn on the Andy Bovender Team. I was dreading selling my house and Kathryn and Monica made the process almost stress free and enjoyable. Both Kathryn and Monica were always available to answer any question I had. Emails were always answered within a few hours. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn’t hesitate in hiring the Andy Bovender Team (actually, I have done it again… Andy is going to sell another house for me). I can’t give this team enough praise. They did an outstanding job! – Dan Ziehm

Andy’s team was very professional. Andy explained what needed to be done to prepare the property for sale. We visited comparable locations to determine where to price the property. When the offer came in he advised us how to negotiate and we sold the property for 96% of the list price. His team held our hands through the whole process. From the time the for sale sign was put up until the final closing was one month.

We really appreciated the personalized attention we received from Andy and his team. Simply put, The Andy Bovender Team is good at what they do. They operate with professionalism & efficiency that we found comforting in this kind of market. We felt really good knowing we were supporting a local, ethical company who shared our values. Thanks for helping us sell and find a home.

Debbie helped me sell one and buy two homes in the last two years. She is hardworking, knowledgeable, patient, helpful, well informed, ethical, and a pleasure to work with. Through the sale and purchases of my homes, Debbie and her team were a joy to work with and made the process seem effortless, when I know it is not! I would definitely recommend Andy Bovender team to anyone buying or selling real estate.

Very helpful, knowledgeable in selling our home. Always stayed in touch during whole home selling process. I would highly recommend Ben and the whole Allen Tate team.
