First, because I'm a big Tigers fan. Andy was so sweet and helpful. He was always available to talk if I had questions or was feeling nervous. He was very encouraging but not at all pushy. I would recommend him to everyone I know needing a realtor.
Andy goes above and beyond to help make things happen. He is very knowledgeable in multiple aspects of not just the sale of a home, but also the construction of homes themselves. This gives an added bonus in ensuring you are having the best outcome possible. I would absolutely recommend Andy Dirks to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
We found him to be an absolute pleasure to work with. As we prepared to list the home, he gave us good advice on what to do and what to leave as is. Once we listed the home, he was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns. We had a couple of things that we needed contractor assistance with and he had people who responded very quickly and completed the work at a very fair price. Throughout the process, we felt that Andy was serving our best interests. His communication was respectful and professional. We would highly recommend him to anyone who is buying or selling a home.
Dirks to be our agent. My wife and I were first time home buyers and had absolutely no idea what to do or where to start. We first met Andy for an initial meeting to discuss the flow of the home buying process. I was blown away. Mr. Dirks is a phenomenal real estate agent. From the initial meeting we had right down to the signing of the papers, Mr. Dirks exceeded our expectations on the home buying process. Andy always answered my phone calls, e-mailed me back, and answered every question we had (even if we asked the same question multiple times). He was prompt, quick with answers and solutions, and provided the most up to date (modern) information on the current housing market. Andy was extremely patient with us on every house we viewed. My wife and I didn’t know the area we were buying in; or even what prices were right for the area. Andy’s team worked diligently for us to provide accurate information on what other houses in the area were selling for. In addition, Andy’s team was able to accommodate our busy work schedule and met with us to view homes on weekends and late evenings. Mr. Dirks also has an eye for upgrades. As he views a lot of homes for clients, he gave very helpful tips on what upgrades are currently in style and what home designs are popular and most coveted. Andy was very attentive to areas in homes that would require attention if purchased, and noted what potential upgrades or fixes would be required to meet our living standard. Andy was also very interactive during the home inspection. He was able to give detailed information on what items could be negotiated to best fit our price range and living standard. Without a doubt, Mr. Dirks has to be hands down the best real estate agent in Oakland county. I would recommend him to anyone (new and experienced) for any home buying/selling needs. I rate Andy 10/10 overall, and can not think of a single problem I had while working with him and his team.
I’m definitely going to use him again when we sell our house in 3 years.
That aside, Andy knew how to walk a home from A to Z and teach us what we were looking for that was complete and what needed improvements. He shared his thoughts on the exterior, interior, and basement honestly and professionally. My family felt in control of the marathon of buying a home with Andy’s ability to keep us calm. He answered questions and gave us advice that we needed. Without Andy, my family would still be running through real estate websites. So I want to say thanks for all the leg work and time put in on my family’s behalf.
As first-time homebuyers, we had numerous questions and needed a lot of guidance. We were truly in excellent hands with Andy. He was there to help every step of the way and was extremely patient, knowledgeable, and responsive. He made us feel very comfortable and was never pushy. He was genuinely committed to finding us a home that would give us the most for our money. Thank you to Andy and his team for your dedication and efficiency throughout our home buying process!
He focuses on building relationships - not on acting like a salesman. His expertise and his network of professional contacts/ referrals has been invaluable. Andy has deep knowledge of the industry, of marketing and pricing strategies, and of the mechanical systems in residential properties. He is the very best realtor with whom I have ever worked.
We reached out to Andy on a referral. We were looking for someone who had our best interest and not self-serving of their own agenda. Andy was incredibly knowledgeable, prepared and very easy to work with. We hired Andy as our realtor and came away with a genuine and caring friend. Best realtor experience we have ever had. Thanks Andy!
He walks you through everything you need to do. His team is also great, they are always there to help. Highly recommend Andy to sell/buy a house.
