Neither party was taken advantage of- which could have very easily happened in some families."

Ryan and Jenn Blackorby have a great reputation in our community and there was no one else we even considered to help us with our sale. Their team worked so hard for us throughout the entire process and we couldn't be more grateful. We had an accepted offer after only 8 days on the market! The Ryan Blackorby Team is amazing! They are so knowledgeable, professional, kind, and considerate. I had so many questions about the process of selling our home and they were quick to respond with an answer every time. When issues came up with our buyer regarding our closing, they were right on it working to solve the problem and had solutions for us immediately that eased any concerns we had. They truly care about their clients and we felt we were treated like family. We would highly recommend The Ryan Blackorby team to anyone buying or selling a home! The Ryan Blackorby Team is simply the BEST!”
