Andrew Kuhlmann - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

I suspect this was one of the most difficult short sales that Drew has had to handle.

The mortgage company was completely uncoorperative and unresponsive in dealing with the sale of the property over a one year period. Despite all the obstacles from the mortgage company, Drew continued to patiently deliver requested documents to the mortgage company, more often than not sending the same documents numerous times. Drew's plan for marketing the property in positioning the property for a short sale was excellent. His knowledge of the short sale process was outstanding particularly when in general he is asked to be a buffer between a client who is being forced to sell their home under very difficult circumstances as well as buyers looking to take advantage of a seller's financial situation. Not that I plan on being in a position to have to sell a house in a short sale situation again, but if I were, I would look to Drew to handle the transaction. Score 10 of 10 in all categories.

Short Sale (Helped me AVOID Foreclosure)

Email received in office from another agent in Asheville, NC.

Karen in our office is working with a buyer from Columbia, SC and his listing agent is Andrew Kuhlmann. The client has raved and raved about him. Passing the compliments on so that you would know.

Terry Rainer (KW Team Leader)

We had a "little surprise" come the end of close where we needed to come to close with over $2,000 that we did not expect to need.

Drew has built our relationship on trust and communication. He took this to the limit and through an in depth series of phone calls and emails we were able to absolve this. Life really is about building trust and relationships. Drew is a great example of this. Scored 10 of 10 in all 5 categories. Testimonial copy available upon request.

Jeremy Schellpeper

When we were planning a move to Columbia from Pittsburgh, my husband “found” Drew on an on-line real estate ad.

He subscribed and we received periodic emails about listings/info in the area we chose. Several months later, on a visit to Columbia prior to our move, we chose a listing to visit for the sole purpose to get a feel for the market and asked Drew if he could arrange a visit. We also thought it would give us an opportunity to meet Drew in person to determine if we wanted to use him as our realtor. Even though the house we chose to see was under agreement, Drew made arrangements with the owner who was kind enough to let us tour the house. He also chose two other homes for use to look at. After each visit (and every subsequent visit thereafter), he would ask us what we loved about the home and what we disliked. He would ask “on a scale of one to ten, what would you give this home”. That day we were hooked and have had only positive experiences working with Drew. It is difficult to move to a new state. Drew was patient with us in our indecisiveness (which side of town do we live, do we want a fixer upper or a newer home), the lack of compatibility in style between my husband and I (log home in the woods or mid-century modern) and our very long list of desired features ( finished walk out basement, a pool, an out-building/shop, acerage, etc). Drew nailed it! He found us a home that is perfect for us including the walkout basement which is very rare in this area. Drew was never pushy but provided wisdom and guidance. Most of all he listened and he only showed us properties that would meet our needs. Our transaction had some issues and Drew was proactive, handling all communication with tact and professionalism. I’m a tough sell and Drew won me over hands down. Give him a chance. You won’t be disappointed!

Mark and Cathy Oxendale

Drew, You are by far the most dedicated and persistent realtor I've worked with.

It is especially appreciated due to the fact that I've got my hands tied over here in Iraq. Thank you for the continued effort and education, I have faith that the property will avoid foreclosure due in no small part to your commitment. Thanks again. Update: Seller was able to sell their home. We negotiated with the bank to accept less than owed so the homeowners avoided foreclosure.

Jeremy (Scott) & Christy Dieringer

Drew was great!

! He was really easy to work with and was an excellent link between the borrower and me (his lender). If I needed additional documents, Drew always got them to me as quickly as he could, and I never had to worry that I wouldn't receive a return call. Scored 10 of 10 in all 5 categories.

Dane Knowles

After my mom passed away, my sisters and I tried to sell her house.

The home was on the market for a year and a half. We finally found Drew Kuhlmann who took over and helped us by means of a short sale. Drew guided us through the process, dealing with the bank and aggressively marketing the house. I don't know how we could have done it without them. They were truly a godsend. I would highly recommend Drew to anyone looking to buy or sell a house in the Columbia SC market. Scored 10 of 10 in all categories.

I personally appreciated everything that Drew did for me and my family.

He gave me positive feedback on every situation, which put my mind at ease. I enjoyed the process, because Drew made it possible to relax and let him do the leg work for us. That's the type of agent everyone needs when you are looking for your dream home. (10 of 10 in all 5 categories). Copy of testimonial on request.

Davena Drowns

You and your team did an OUTSTANDING job of selling our Mom's home in South Carolina.

Your dedication, patience, diligence and in-depth knowledge are tremendous. What I liked best about working with you, however, was that you treated me and my family like PEOPLE, not like 'a sale'. I would be happy to recommend you to anyone who is interested in either buying or selling a home. Thank you for your attention to detail and tremendous work ethic. Score 10 of 10 in all categories

PJ Jenkinson

Typically, I feel I am shooting in the dark when I am asked to match character traits of my local clients with those of another Realtor in a completely different state.

The more I spoke with Andrew, the more I knew that he was up to the task of helping my Baton Rouge, LA clients with their new home purchase in Columbia, SC. My clients were happy to report that they had found the home they were looking for after one weekend of searching with Andrew. They were even happier that I had paird them with Andrew. He not only made himself look good by getting the job done in a few days but made me look like a hero in Baton Rouge. My buyers were very pleased. I hope to send many referrals to him.

Drew Drew: I want to thank you for the dedication you brought to the task of selling the property on Faraway Lane.

I realize it wasn't next to your office and that it required physical activity on your part as well as telephone and other coversations with possible buyers and the ultimate buyer. I certainly am comfortable that it was easy to contact you and, if I was not able to reach you, you contacted me back and did listen. I think the recommendation I received to use your services was excellent and I will thank those people that made the recommendation. I would certainty be happy to use your services again. I have attached the Client Satisfaction Survey, however, if you would like an original copy, please give me your address and I will forward it that way as well. Sincerely, James W. Suotton.

Drew was very responsive in every aspect of buying our home; we appreciated his willingness to listen and pursue all available options.

We highly recommend him in your home search!!

Jen & Phil Albright

Drew was a huge help to us.

He spent time with us before we put our house on the market to listen to our situation and what our needs were. He gave us good advice even if it meant less money in his pocket. He was available when we wanted to go see homes. I sensed Drew was honest, caring, and wanted what is best for us. When we had to take our house off the market, he was gracious, kind, and understood. Thank you Drew. We later re-listed and Drew did a great job handling the sale of our home. Score 10 of 10 in all 5 categories.

Drew recognized from the start that we were not the easiest of clients to deal with since we knew specifically what we wanted which was not the "norm" in Columbia.

He immediately jumped on the same page with us which developed a harmonious and productive working relationship. The end result was a home that we absolutely love and are proud to host friends and family in. Score 10 of 10 in all 5 categories.

Drew performed a miracle to find a house I could afford to buy for my daughter.

It was a foreclosure that he was able to negotiate an unbelievable price for me. Can you believe 3 bedroom 2 bath on a huge lot with fenced in back yard for $60,000? WIth a new roof and minor repairs this house is easily worth $128,000!

Jason Maintzer

In 2011, my family and I relocated to Columbia, South Carolina.

We had limited information about the local communities for our growing family and no local contacts. Mr. Kuhlmann, displayed great knowledge of the local communities and in depth research on the properties we visited. He also had great local contact information for competitive financial institutions, inspection service providers and residential home improvement contractors. Throughout the property search to the closing of the property; Mr. Kuhlmann was with us step by step ot help evaluate the properties, negotiate a sales price, gather information to help us close on a home loan, push the seller to complete their closing documents, and close on the property. Even after the closing, he continued to guide us through utility switch overs and county tax departments. Drew and Lisa's professional services are built on trust, value, and integerity. They made the purchase of our dream home a reality. We highly recommend Drew Kuhlmann as your real estate agent. Scored 10 of 10 on all 5 categories. Testimonial copy available upon request.

Tylor Rhoads

I just wanted you to know how appreciative I am for all the work you did in helping us get our house sold.

I know a short sale has it's challenges and this one, probably more than most, considering the geographies of everyone involved. Before speaking with you, I had talked to 4 or 5 different realtor's all of which claimed to be able to "get the job done". None of whom ever produced a thing. You were knowledgeable and professional and always went the extra mile to make the contacts and push the sale through. I would recommend your services to anyone, especially those distressed home owners who really need the guidance of a real estate professional. Thank you again for all your help.

Vicki Husselman

Drew was great as our agent.

We utilized him for a purchase and for the sale of our home. He provided us an exceptional incentive as he represented us for multiple transactions. He called this program the Flexible Listing Agreement. Drew is knowledgeable about the industry and provided great feedback.
