We moved here (West Plano) three years ago from CT. We have the best real estate agent I ever worked with and we have moved a lot. She is an older woman and she *really* knows her stuff. She used to be on the board of Texas Realtors and seems to know everybody and everything about the market. She will make sure you get a good deal, get the best inspectors. Seriously, I would never use anyone else if we were moving within the agrea.

Okay we have lived in Texas on 3 separate occasions and have bought and sold 6 homes during that time. Our last three home searches have been with Paulette Greene with Ebby Halliday and I would say she is the best agent we have ever had. We move all over the country and have had to buy and sell homes over a dozen times. I would say talk with Paulette- she is wonderful.
I dont have her contact number at my desk but I can get it out of my cell phone. I think her web site is paulettesellsdallas.com but I am sure you can find her by calling any ebby office - she is in a dallas office. By the way we have lived in plano frisco allen and mckinney and she is very familiar with all of those areas. You can tell her we referred you and she will take great care of you.

Good Morning M.,

I read your note and felt called to tell you about a fabulous lady who helped us out above and beyond the call of any real estate agent. I have used quite a lot of agents in my time, because we have never lived anywhere longer than 3 years. Norma Langston knows the areas you mentioned like the back of her hand and helped us find our home in Allen in 3 days. It was nothing short or a miracle orchestrated by Norma. Her office is in Plano and she is with Coldwell Banker. Her and I still have coffee time to time and catch up on my kids and her grandkids. Her cell phone number is ###-###-#### and her maine office number is ###-###-####. Her personal email is [email protected]____.com. I have referred her in the past and everyone has been very please with her service. My brother and sister in law used her to find their home in McKinney a little over a year ago. The best thing is she loves kids and kids love her. Happy house hunting! Jennifer Livesey in Allen. Feel free to call me if you want to chat about her. ###-###-####

M.,
Hi there. We moved from Louisiana to Frisco about 3 months ago. We used Linda Bates from Prudential because she lived in my brothers neighborhood in Plano even though he really didn't know her personally. Well, she was really a blessing. She has lived in or near Plano her entire life and she really knew her stuff. She was not familiar with where we wanted to live but she did her homework and it showed. She took Easter weekend and dedicated the entire weekend to us. Whatever we wanted she bent over backwards to help us out. She even took us to new construction and in the past we have worked with realtors that frown upon that. Anyways, if you are interested you can email me and I will get you her phone number. Thanks, Pam

They sold my house in West Plano in 2 weeks during the Christmas season and found us a beautiful home in foreclosure in Richardson! They also just sold my friend's house who moved to Pennsylvania in less than 3 weeks just a month ago. His number is ###-###-####. Good Luck! Anne

She is with Ebby Halliday Realtors. She is an absolute joy to work with. We were first time home buyers in the West Plano area and she went through the whole process with us very throughly and patiently. She doesn't mind having the kids tag along. She even was to kind to offer us an extra space in her house because we thought there was going to be a gap between the closing date and our temp. housing (we relocated). She is the "unofficial" realtor of my husbands office and they all have had wonderful experiences as well. She if fluent in English and Spanish. Hope this helps.

Corey Young with Re-Max Associates of Dallas. Not only is she a close friend of mine but she was recently listed in D-Magazine as one of the best Realtors to work with in the Dallas area. She is very familiar with West Plano, Allen and Frisco as they are listed as some of her top areas that she specializes in. I set her up to help my dad and his wife look for a house in Frisco and West Plano and they have been telling me that she is amazing. She is VERY good at listening to what you want. She will find you exactly what you are looking for. She is also very patient, understanding and probably the most honest Realtor you will work with. She is also a mom of a little girl who is almost 2 years old. I will be using her in a year or so when we are ready to move. I know she will find me my dream home. Give her a call. Her cell/work number is ###-###-####. Tell her R. Rhodes gave you her info. She is a good friend of mine. Good luck!

M.,

I highly recommend Pat Morgan with Remax. She is also my mother, but one of the best agents out there. I have never seen anyone work so hard for her clients. She has even helped them move! I have also seen her babysit while clients move. She has worked with all of my friends in every price range imaginable. Pat specializes in Plano, Allen and Frisco, but she works all of DFW. She is one of the top Remax producers in the area. She doesn't advertise as she works mostly by referral. That speaks volumes in itself. The thing that really strikes me about her style is the fact that she truly is always after the client's best interest. She will not try to close a house that she knows will cause you problems down the road. Her true passion is in finding a home... not a house for her clients' family. I also admire her connections in the industry. She has the best appraisers, inspectors and contractors to help out along the way. She also has a partnership with lending to make the process quick and painless. Her website is www.iwantthishouse.com and her cell phone is ###-###-####. I will shoot her an email to let her know that I referred her to you in case you decide to call. Good luck with your house hunting!

Hi, M.,

Wow! You have gotten the hugest response to a question I've seen since I've been reading this board!

Anyway, I wanted to let you know about Jeannette Escutia. She ONLY works by referrals, and we always felt she was looking out for our best interest as buyers. (I'm not related to her and gain nothing by giving her name out). I'm so thankful a friend told me about her.

She passes on any incentives and bonuses to the client (you), owns her own company, and is incredibly patient. We were looking at houses for a while with two small children and she was very accomodating.

I know you have TONS of choices, so good luck making your decision. Here's Jeannette's info:

Wow, you have gotten a lot of responses, but I hope you'll consider one more.

I'm originally from Plano and have just moved back after living in Arkansas for 7 years. A friend referred us to Gigi Jacks at Ebby. She's been in the business for so long that I really appreciated her expertise and knowledge of the area. She was great at accomadating our busy schedules and was very prepared every time we went to view homes. I could go on raving about her. Give her a quick call and give her a phone interview if you'd like. That's what we did when trying to decide.

I can recommend someone that just sold us our home. He is incredibly nice, not pushy and won't let you buy a bad investment. He does a lot of work for you and through the last 5 months or so of knowing him, I have come across about six different people that say he is just an all around good guy. You will not be disappointed. Just drop him and email or call him - I promise you will be happy you did.
His name is John Allen and he is with Keller Williams. His email is [email protected]____.com. I don't have his # on me as we just moved. My husband has it in his cell though, so if you do not reach him by email just let me know and I will get his # for you.
Good luck! I hope you have as good an experience as we did!

We used Martha Robertson a year ago when we moved from Austin to Plano. She found us a great house in the perfect neighborhood in West Plano and negotiated $16,000 off the listing price when the house was only on the market for 1 day. She will work hard for you.
