What Customers Are Saying…

“We met with Chad and his team and they walked us through his aggressive marketing plan, confident that he could sell our home. We had our 1st showing the day before the listing contract went into effect and in just a week we had 2 offers. The Chad Schwendeman Real Estate Group are top notch professionals, we will not hesitate to refer them to others!”


“We trusted them to price it as close to what the market would ultimately dictate and we had an offer in 22 hours, and a second offer came a month later came closer and with creative negotiating, it was a done deal in another week. After all was said and done, it sold for less than 1% of where Chad said it would.”


“Chad has been our realtor and friend for many years. Chad’s number one goal is to ensure he finds you the perfect home for you and your family. If you are selling your home, he uses every resource available to market and sell your home quickly. I’ve never felt it’s about making a profit with Chad. He loves what he does and it is always about making you happy.”
