We called Alco and left a message, Sandra called us back in less than 30 minutes. She was able to rearrange her schedule so we could see our house that evening. Arriving early we walked around the outside while another agent was finishing up their appointment. Sandra arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule and after greeting she took us on a tour. Sandra was informative and insightful, she worked very hard for us to be able to buy the house as it had several offers. Sandra was a delight to work with my wife and myself felt very comfortable working with her. We recommend her highly! She was excellent.

I want to express how amazing it has been to work with Sandra Cantrell. I met Sandra at work and connected with her immediately. She came into the office inquiring about auto loans for her children and as soon as we started getting to know each other the flow of the conversation was undeniable. She told me she was a realtor and I was so comfortable that I told her I wanted to own a home but at the time I thought I would have to wait two years before I could even think about buying. I told her I was already looking at apartments. Without being pushy or trying to change my mind she gave me information about buying and about the market. She gave me her business card and said if I had any questions to call her. A few weeks later I had put a deposit for an apartment but when looking at the monthly cost something was not sitting with me. One afternoon I called Sandra and asked her to be real with me. I asked her “How possible is it for a single girl like me to be a homeowner?” I told her I had shopped all the apartments and rents were just as expensive as a mortgage. That day we talked for awhile and she answered every question “again without being pushy”. She told me the first step was to contact a lender and thankfully we had someone in common.

I was able to get pre-approved with the lender and we started the search. I’m a first-time home buyer and I had no idea what I was looking for or honestly wanted. I was more price driven but thankfully Sandra understood my style. The way she conducts herself with such professionalism but so open and respectful all at the same time is what makes her great. I had sent her accouple of new built homes and some condos. She would have all the info within a day. She also told me to download the Alco Realty App. It was so easy to use and true to the market. She had sent me to drive by a house and on my way back she called me asking if I had time to look at a house. That same day she arranged everything so in a few hours we were at the house doing a walkthrough. The house was perfect! The perfect size, style, price, everything. As we left the house, I told Sandra I wanted to put an offer. That same day she started working on getting the offer in. We had to negotiate a little, but she was on my side on every step/ decision we took. By the next day we had an offer on the table and in one or two days the sellers had accepted my offer. I could not believe it I was so excited but so scared at the same time, but Sandra stayed by my side every step of the way. Every question I had she new how to answer. We worked through the ups and downs, the waiting a confirming and made it to my closing date without any problems. She also had a lot of good recommendations for inspectors, insurance, tax, anything I needed. The same way it started with Sandra by my side, it ended with her by my side. It was the best feeling ever and I was so grateful and thankful to have her as a realtor and now friend. I don’t think I would have taken this step if I had not worked with Sandra. Buying a home is a big step but when you work with someone like Sandra it’s the best feeling ever.

From beginning to end, Sandra was amazing! She was always available to answer questions and when we needed something done it was prepared immediately. She genuinely cares about your home buying and selling experience. If anyone can do it she is your gal! We were transitioning out of the military and back into civilian life and she made the process so easy for us. We purchased our first home with her and it is so perfect.If you want someone who knows what they are doing and top notch customer service look no further Sandra Cantrell is it. Should we have other real estate needs she will be the person we call!!!

Sandra – Thank you so much for helping us find a home for our parents. You were very professional, caring and made us feel like we were your only client. From our first telephone call, finding the right home and just taking the time to show us the property you found. It was very quick and you worked the deal diligently always answering our questions all the way thru the closing. We have never found or worked with a Realtor like you before and highly recommend you anyone. Thank you so much for the yard flag, chocolates and welcome mat, Mrs. Anna loved them.

Thanks again,

When my husband Ken and I were in the market for real estate in Georgia, we sent an inquiry through the internet and received a response very quickly. Sandra asked several questions and was right on it. Within a short time she had several listings for us to see and appointments set for each. She was very professional and we were able to make an offer in just a couple days. Being out of state, she was continually in touch with us to make sure everything was in order. We couldn’t be happier with her for our purchase. We would highly recommend Sandra for your real estate needs.

Sandra was extremely helpful and patient with my wife and I as we were first time home buyers. She was with us every step of the way and was a fountain of knowledge during the entire process. She told us what to expect and there were no surprises and the process was smooth. With her help we were able to get a beautiful house and we could not be happier. We’ll be referring her to everyone we know that is looking to buy a house.

Thank you for everything Sandra!
