Selling your home
Our original thought was to try to sell the home ourselves. However, our circumstances changed, resulting in us moving out of town rather quickly and unexpectedly. At this point, we knew we had to find a real estate agent, and Volley's services met our needs. Just because the commission was less than others didn't mean that service suffered. We are firm believers that if you price the home appropriately, it will sell itself. Volley was very knowledgeable and readily available throughout the process. Through no fault of his, it took three contracts before we sold the home. Despite this, Volley continued to assure us that the home would sell and he was right - we even received more than our asking price. Looking back, trying to sell the home ourselves would not have been a good decision, even if we hadn't moved across the state, given the services that Volley offers for an unbelievably fair commission. Without hesitation, we would recommend Volley and his services to anyone.

To whom it May Concern:As a family of physicians and lawyears, we were extremely picky about whom to choose to be our real estate agent when we were getting ready to sell our 4600 square foot home in Houston, Texas. Having bought and sold over 120 properties during our 43 year-old marriage, we were tired of real estate agents taking our listing and making huge promises and then reneging on their assurances as they sat around simply waiting for the supposed buyer to appear. From the very beginning, Volley Goodman was uniquely different from most real estate agents. He is one of those rare communicators who is thoughtful in his responses and takes the time to listen to your worries and concerns in a kind and gentle manner. He makes himself extremely available; he always retured our calls and e-mails in the shortest possible time. He is economically savvy, educated in finance, and is aware of the trends and the ups-and-downs in the market before the general public is aware. Volley is also highly intelligent and responsible, always giving carefully thought-out advice and never acting on impulse. Most importantly, it is incredible that Volley Goodman offers every type of real estate help and service for the tremendous discount price of 2.5% of the selling price. He provides you everything(and more) that a full real estate brokerage will charge you, yet at that unbelievable discounted price that makes one pinch oneself to believe it is possible for Volley to make a living doing this. Furthermore, for that discounted price, you are not just getting the service of a real estate agent, but that of a full service broker.If you are selling your home(or buying one, for that matter) and are looking for an agent/broker of the highest ethical and moral standards, a hard worker had an extremely knowledgeable, and impressive broker to handle your real estate transaction, we strongly recommend Volley Goodman, broker-extraordinaire to handle your affairs. You won't regert your decision!

Record Price in The Montrose
Volley Goodman sold our house in The Montrose Houston recently and we couldn’t be happier to recommend him to others looking to sell their home.
Our experience was that we had over-invested in a small 2-bedroom bungalow and were having trouble getting our investment back when it came time to sell. We talked to a number of other real estate agents and were told repeatedly that we had unrealistic expectations. These agents seemed obsessed with price per square foot and told us that even if we could get close to the price it would never appraise so we would need a cash only buyer. Volley had a refreshing attitude. He said his job was to prepare a narrative that would get people through the home and someone was going to fall in love with the house just as we had when we bought it 7 years earlier. Volley got our asking price, setting a price-per-sq-foot record for the area. Not only that, but the house appraised for exactly the selling price just as Volley had predicted it would.
Volley Goodman is a full service real estate agent. Don’t let the discounted price fool you, he is available 24-7 and handles everything in a calm professional manner. He is different to other real estate agents in many good ways; he listens more than he talks, he seeks common ground between buyer and seller and importantly for us he doesn’t go in for quirky staging that many agents insist on. Volley asks that the home be shown clean and uncluttered to allow the prospective buyer to see the home through the your (the sellers’) eyes. All of this allowed us to complete the showings and the sale in as stress free a manner as is humanly possible.
We don’t hesitate to recommend Volley Goodman if you are selling (or even buying) a home.

THANK YOU VOLLEY!
I want to sincerely thank you for all that you did to help me sell my home in the Heights. You went above and beyond to answer any questions I had and were always available. Your dedication and the undivided attention you give your clients is amazing. Your knowledge and expertise made selling my house a pleasant experience.
I will recommend you to anyone I know and will certainly look you up again if I need a realtor. Thank you again for your help.
TOP NOTCH REAL ESTATE PROFESSIONAL!
Volley assisted us with both selling our home and buying our new one. He was very knowledgeable regarding market conditions and worked diligently to help us set our price and get the best possible buyer for my home.
He was quick to make every effort to serve my family's needs and worked hard on our behalf to make it the best possible experience from beginning to end. He was an amazing liaison for both parties (seller and buyer).
He even went beyond his call of duty.
He is a great person and a professional that always makes himself available when needed, no matter what. He is the only realtor I would recommend to anyone and will be the only realtor I will use in the future.
Thanks again Volley for your hard work and dedication while still taking care of everyone else.

I recently sold my house (January 2014) and chose to work with Volley over three full-price agents I also interviewed. In those interviews, I asked the other agents "Why should I hire you over anyone else and pay you full commission?", and the answer I kept hearing was "experience." Well, not only is Volley experienced in selling houses, he does it exceptionally well. Volley has done everything I would expect of any agent, and he has done those things exceptionally well. He has answered all of my questions and been very patient in explaining things every step of the way. I would recommend his services to anyone in need of an agent without exception.
One of the best decisions I made, in my life, was firing my conventional realtor, and hiring Volley Goodman, my "flat-fee" realtor. In the age of the Internet, most people look at homes – on the web. Once your home is listed on the websites, even realtors rely on web traffic. So why pay high commissions?
Volley is not for everyone. If you are willing to do some of the basic stuff, then hire Volley, and save a fortune! He does all the administrative stuff, gets you on all the websites, and gives you sound advice, based on his many years of experience.
If you are thinking of FSBO – don’t! For a few more dollars, you get an experienced realtor. Volley delivered on everything he promised. I have no hesitation on recommending him to anyone who wants to save a bundle of money.
