Customer Comments:

“Raylene was persistent in getting our needs taken care of. We very much appreciate that. She is knowledgeable, professional, determined, confident and has a desire to do the very best for her clients. She was the right one for us in the sale of our home. I would without hesitation recommend Raylene Lewis to anyone.” – Patrick and Reva Wren, College Station, November 2016

“It was truly a pleasure to have Raylene as our agent while we searched for house in town that would fit our
needs. She had some really good insights on issues with house spaces that we had never considered, which
brought a lot of value to us. Her positive attitude and patience with us was something we really appreciated
as well. We felt like she went the extra mile for us, which is why we would recommend Raylene to anyone.
Thanks Raylene!! Appreciate your help….:-)” -Divyesh & Manisha Bhagat, College Station, October 2016

“Working with Raylene was great! I don’t know if we could have made it through this process without her. She helped us find the right house at a price we could afford, and expertly guided us through the entire process. We were faced with some challenges that made our situation more difficult than usual, but Raylene always knew what to do to keep us moving forward. I would recommend Raylene and her team to anyone without hesitation. I truly believe she is the best real estate agent in the Brazos Valley. ” -Gary and Stephanie Scott, August 2016

“She made our real estate transactions fun!”

“Raylene was always very professional and friendly.”

“She kept us informed every step of the way.  It was a joy to work with her!”

“She went out of her way to do things for us.  If we asked her to check on a certain thing about the house, you can be sure she found out things for us the same day.”

“I would recommend her to everybody!”

“Raylene is extremely knowledgeable of the market conditions and was outstanding in promoting my property. I could not have been more satisfied with the results obtained.”

“Raylene is simply the best agent I have ever worked with. She understood our needs, and based on her understanding of the market, the sellers’ needs, and their agent, she was able to craft a competitive offer with side conditions that put us at the head of the pack. She came highly recommended by my colleagues, and the recommendation was well deserved. She also kept in touch with us after the deal had closed, and went the extra mile to smooth our relocation from NJ. I also want to give a shoutout to her partner Ken Farley, who quickly developed an understanding of our preferences, has also kept in touch and continues to help us settle in during our first week in Texas. We greatly appreciate his efforts. I expect him to develop into a formidable agent following Raylene’s example.”

“Raylene is truly amazing! She helped us relocate and, because we didn’t have time to house-hunt before we moved, she listened carefully to what we wanted, kept on top of the listings, and found us the right place. It’s a testament to how much we trust and respect her professionalism that we bought the house sight-unseen (after only a walk-through via Skype with Raylene). She also has amazing local knowledge and contacts and goes above and beyond. Highly recommended!”

“Helped sell same home she helped us buy 10 years earlier. was excellent at helping us to repair 10 years of college student use as well as updating for the most economical sell. had numerous compliments on her remodel. did an excellent job.”

“Raylene is very knowledgeable and efficient.”

“Looking for a high energy, tech savvy real estate pro? Raylene is the one to call! Raylene consistently is one of the top agent in the Bryan College Station real estate market. Raylene is a dynamic professional who with fight for her clients!”

“I was very, very impressed with Raylenes’ abilities as a real estate agent. She is very attentive, responsive and active. She knows the local market and has an extensive “network” of potential buyers. Her performance ratings are accurate and are as a result of her relentless pursuit of excellence in selling real estate. Don’t let the fact that she’s young sway you from placing your listing with her! She’s an absolute go-get-er!! I will, without a doubt use her again should the need arise, and I’ve already recommended her to others I know wanting / needing to sell their homes.”

“As first time sellers, Raylene and Kim kept us very informed and we felt secure with their suggestions and guidance on the sale of our home. At all times they were accessible and easy to talk to, immediately returning phone calls and texts. They treated us in a professional and courteous manner and we would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell property.”

“Superb realtor! My house sold before it even went on the market! Raylene sold our house via word-of-mouth before we even finished our remodel. She came and looked at it mid-remodel, told us what she would like to list it for, and sold it for that exact amount within a few weeks! I have never had such a good experience with a realtor. There was never a time when I couldn’t reach her by cell phone (and I called a lot). Raylene is straight-forward, prompt, thorough, and extremely knowledgable. I’d definetely recommend her to anyone.”

“Raylene worked as a buying agent for a property with me recently. She is extremely knowledgeable about the local real estate market in Bryan/College Station area. She has been in the business for a number of years and knows most others well and can find an answer to any question very quickly. She is an excellent negotiator and makes sure you get the best deal. She can also point to the good and bad about a property because of her extensive knowledge and always gives an honest answer about the suitability of the property.”

“We were coming from a very different housing market when looking for a home in College Station. We did some online research for us to narrow down candidates to be our agent for buying a home since we were moving from quite a distance. Reylene put together a list of prospective homes for us to tour based on our previous emails and phone calls. She showed me homes that met the parameters we discussed beforehand, but we discovered they were not exactly what we were looking for after all. Reylene patiently worked with us as we modified our search criteria and we found that home that’s just right for us. And, of course, we were not the only ones interested when we finally found what we really liked. It was Reylene’s knowledge and consultation that helped us make a mutually beneficial offer that was attractive enough that our’s was the accepted offer in a multiple offer situation. Furthermore she guided us around pitfalls and consulted us on reasonable expectations for negotiating after the inspection. We are now the new owners a home in a neighborhood we really like. We are glad we chose Reylene as our agent in buying our home in College Station.”

“If you are thinking about going with Raylene, DO IT!!!! Raylene will work for what you want and give you even more. She saved us money even the day before we closed! She will go to bat for you and protect your interests. She was always available for my wife and me to answer questions. I can’t say enough good things about the professional service that she provided. She made our first buying experience comfortable and we felt like we knew what we were getting into before we signed the papers. There were no surprises the day we closed. I give her two thumbs up and if I had three, she would get three.”

“Raylene was very helpful with compiling and showing available properties as well as assisting us throughout the entire purchasing process. She and her staff were always courteous, responsive, knowledgeable and/or obtained information for us as needed. She and her staff were also up front about what properties were best for our needs and what ones were not. Because we live in Colorado, I was often unavailable to meet with the various contractors, title company people, etc. but either Raylene or one of her staff were always willing to stand in my stead. I will look to this group to sell my property when the time comes, I highly recommend them.”

“Raylene is most likely the best real estate professional I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She is prompt, professional and knows her market. She negotiates well and has an excellent understanding of potential problems and potential repairs. Her service extends beyond closing. She has been a great source for contractors for repair and remodeling.”

“If you’re buying or selling a property in Bryan/College Station area, you must contact Raylene. She listed and sold our property in 60 days. I am very cost conscious (cheap) and I’m in the financial business. I always wonder if I couldn’t sell a property by myself, don’t do it. You will find Raylene’s service is worth every penny. I found her by looking for the best producing realtors in the area. Look on-line and you can see her results. Read the other reviews they’re right.

She has excellent contacts in the area. Her connections with other realtors and knowledge of the area enabled us to get the most for our property. Additionally she provides all of the services to make your property looks it’s best. She sold our property at the top end of my expectations (I studied other listings) while others in our town home community are still on the market. Her team is great, she is efficient and professional.”

“We chose Raylene after having our house listed for 7 months with another local agent.. That agent assured us it was just a bad market and after that long, we’d only had 9 showings and we’d wasted 7 months of mortgage payments. After we decided to switch to Raylene, the house was under contract in less than a month! We had at least 20 showings and she has been the best agent we have ever dealt with (we have bought and sold 3 other homes). She is realistic in her goals, really takes care of EVERY detail, is amazingly friendly and ABSOLUTELY knows her market. Truly she is worth every penny of her commission and she really earns it. We were probably not the easiest clients as my husband is military and lives in HI while I am currently in OH, but she took everything in stride and their “docusign” program allows you to e-sign documents so geographic location does not impair the process! Raylene, Kim, Susan, and the rest of their team are absolutely who you should choose if you are looking for a knowledgeable, honest, fun, and sincere real estate team in the College Station / Bryan area!”

“Not enough positives can be said about Raylene Lewis. I have used many agents over the past 30years. Raylene Lewis has been the best.”

“As a former real estate agent in another state, I thought Raylene showed every aspect of a great realtor. And she had great back-up staff!!! Would definitely recommend her and will use her to sell my house next year!!”

“Our home had been listed with another agent for over 6 months before we listed with Raylene Lewis. She sold our home in roughly 2.5 weeks and I am convinced it was her vast marketing and aggressiveness with open houses and realtor tours that made the difference. We have moved out of the area, but working with her was a joy!”

“I was a first time home buyer and Raylene was there every step of the way to help me. I thought buying my first home was going to be stressful and confusing, but Raylene made the experience fun. She showed me what to look for when buying a home, help me see all my options and told me what to think about and consider. When we were looking at homes, Raylene would point out the positives and negatives of a property…not just try to sell me something. She expained the process and made sure I didn’t overpay and that the home had been correctly inspected. The best part about Raylene is that she still stays in touch with me. If I have questions about my home or the area, I know I can still talk to Raylene and she will help me out. She is a Realtor who really cares about the best interest of her clients.”

“Raylene was very professional and led us through every step of the transaction. She delivered everything that was promised!!!”

“We simply would not have sold our home without Raylene Lewis. She went above and beyond the call of duty and made peace of a stressful situation.”

“Raylene went out of her way to be helpful; very knowledgeable about the area; always pleasant; I would recommend her highly; you won’t find a better realtor in the Bryan/ College Station area”

“Great Realtor!! Knows the local market well, and has an excellence team that takes care of business. Sold my house fast and at my requested price…..Twice if you include the full backup offer. I would not hesitate to list with her again.”

“Very professional, I recommend Raylene to everyone that is in the market to sell or buy. I would call on her again if I ever need help purchasing or buying another home.”

“Raylene Lewis is a phenomenal realtor! Our house sold immediately for full price. She’s extremely knowledgable of the area and market values. In addition, she’s always prompt and available when you need her. I would recommend her to anyone.”

“Raylene was a wonderful realtor who always kept us informed and gave us advice on how to get our house sold in this market. “

“Very professional”

“Raylene and Kim are great! It was wonderful working with them. They kept me updated on the property at all times. I hope to work with them in the future.”

“Excellent! 5 star agent!”

“Raylene Lewis is very diligent in working hard to get you the right house at the right price. She is definitely working for you as a seller or a buyer. The best sale is one that is good for both the buyer and the seller…and I think she balances that out for everyone involved.”

“I also want to thank both Raylene and Halley for ALL the hard work that you have contributed to my buying these 2 homes this month. Some may not tell you, but you are definitely appreciated by both Jim and me.”

“Raylene Lewis is one of the best Realtors. She listens to what you want and finds it. She is an advocate for you and does everything in her power to find answers to your questions. She really goes above and beyond!! She works hard to sell your house and is great at it!”

“Thanks everyone we are beyond excited to get in there and make this house or new home. Raylene Lewis you are an awesome Realtor! Thanks for helping us find the perfect one.”

“Raylene helped me get out of some poor investments without much pain and with top dollar. She is truly impressive.”

“I would recommend friends and family to use Raylene Lewis, she was wonderful!”

“Thank you Raylene for all you did for us… you are the best.”

“She was very professional and helpful.”

“Thank you Raylene Lewis for selling us our dream house! Thank you for being a wonderful Realtor. Now it is time to make many memories in this beautiful home! We are ready to use the pool. Thank you Thomas Rodgers and Kaitlyn Smith Rodgers for making the home wonderful.” -Cindy Davis Brown

“I used Raylene as a Buyer’s Rep in 2005, and didn’t hesitate to call her when it was time to sell in 2016. She was professional, ambitious, and first class start to finish, on both transactions.” -William Bernhard

“I wanted a high volume agent with a long record of success who understood on-line marketing strategies and the little unwritten nuances needed to sell our house. In Raylene Lewis, we found a gem who skillfully scheduled showings of our home without the use of a lock box. Raylene Lewis’ knowledge, skills, leadership and professionalism far surpassed every other agent I have used in the last forty-five years. I do not say that lightly. I highly recommend her and would use her again in a heartbeat.” -Nelson and Phyllis
