Selling your first home is hard enough, but knowing who to trust that important sale to, in this market today, is even tougher. We were terrified of selling our home. We didn’t have any idea of where to start. We knew we needed a real estate agent, but when we began looking we found hundreds listed. We had no idea which one would be right for us.
It was my father’s best friend who had suggested Stephen Hall, so we made the appointment to meet him. I was impressed immediately with his politeness and Bogart style, a rear thing these days. He viewed our home and gave an extremely informative presentation on the process of selling our home, what to do and what to expect. He was respectful and very honest. He was everything we were looking for so we hired him immediately.
Stephen guided us through the stressful process of getting ready for the sale. He explained and suggested all the things that needed to be done in order to “stage” our home correctly, things we would never know. Once the house was ready we placed it up for sale.
Our house sold in one day! It was unbelievable. All the fears and doubts we had were for nothing. I couldn’t believe it. It would never have sold so fast without him. Stephen Hall is amazing! As an extra bonus now that we have sold our home with Stephen, we only have to refer one other purchase or sale with him and we get a free week vacation at one of the Century 21 resorts. That’s a perfect way to top off our sale.
While we were packing and getting ready to close the sale I was dying with a horrible flu. After hearing how bad I sounded on the phone, Stephen showed up with flu medication to help me. This is how kind and caring he is. What other real estate agent would care about their client as much? Only Stephen Hall. Thank You Stephen for all you have done for us.

I want to thank you for selling my house. I had gone through a terrible time these last few months when I lost my life partner; my loving husband Bob. I was and still am in emotional turmoil, but our home of 18 years was too much for me to handle anymore on my own, so I decided to sell. Your name came to mind because I remembered how satisfied we were when you sold our home in Mt. Pearl 20 years ago. Unfortunately in all the confusion I lost your phone number so another realtor from a leading real estate company was referred with whom I listed my home. For three months my house sat there with very little activity, in fact my realtor hardly even kept in-touch. I was so unhappy and the whole ordeal was emotionally draining. In discussion with my best friend, she said from what you have told me about Stephen you would have had your house sold by now if you has listed with him.
When the listing expired I took her suggestion and gave Stephen a call. He was like a breath of fresh air and so empathic to my situation. He spoke with confidence when he said, "it's not if the house sells, it was when it sells."
In his presentation he discussed with me how to get the most money yet a quick sale without giving away the farm. He showed me the mistakes many sellers make even when listed with a realtor and how to avoid them. He then showed me the approach he was going to take to accomplish it.
He took a lot of pictures with his professional camera and wrote some really nice comments about my home. Well the rest is history. Within 21 days, from listing my home we had an accepted offer for $15,000 more than the other realtor said I could hope to get for it.
What a difference in service. Three months little activity, no sale. The listing expired December 31, 2010 and Stephen listed it on January 6, 2011. Not only did we have an accepted offer, but Stephen had five other people who wanted to buy my house. The transition was only days between listings, in the same market, it was no coincidence and it wasn't luck! The difference was like night and day. I guess it's true what Stephen told me. Century 21 has the largest real estate website in the world and attracts more visitors than any other real estate website in the world; it worked for me!
Stephen, you have my permission to use this letter of appreciation to help convince others not to doubt you for a moment. If you have a real estate need, I'm telling you, use Stephen, his marketing program really works. From my own personal experience, from when he sold our home in Mt. Pearl; till today, twenty years later he once again exceeded my expectations.
Thank you Stephen

“Thank-you Stephen Hall and Century 21 Seller’s Choice for arranging our accommodations in Orlando at the Cypress Point Grand Villas Resort. We enjoyed a wonderful week and it was absolutely beautiful; it was simply awesome!”
“We have to admit, when we first heard about the RCI certificate program we were a little skeptical. We wondered, what’s the catch? Would we have to pay the taxes or are there fees of some sort. Well there were no catches, it’s all free as you stated. All we had to do was refer two people who used your services.”
“Our two bedroom villa was stunning it was very clean, the surroundings were gorgeous and very well manicured. We enjoyed the granite showers, granite kitchen, and the most comfortable beds you could ever sleep in. We also loved the screened in patio deck off our living room that we could go out and enjoy anytime. The resort had hot tubs and 3 pools which was a big hit, especially with our son Ethan. There was a grocery store, pizza place, basically anything you would need to make your vacation relaxing and enjoyable. We loved it and would go back there again in a heartbeat.”
Thank you from,
Byron, Rosalind and Ethan.
Ps. “Greatly appreciate what you’ve done for us and for making our family trip such an enjoyable and memorable one. Can’t wait to get another week!!!!”

I received this letter of appreciation from Ted & Sandra Stuckless. Both Ted and Sandra have university degrees and initially felt they didn't need the services of a Realtor®, so they decided to offer their property privately. This went on for sometime without favorable results. The Stuckless's have given me permission to share this letter with you so that you too can have confidence when you or your friends and family use our services. Feel free to contact Mr. Stuckless at any time, he would be more than happy to share his experience with you. His contact information is on his webpage.
Once more, we wish to say a big ‘thank you’ for your excellent assistance and wish you much success in the future.
