Duffy Realty of Atlanta

The Worst Experiences

Duffy Realty of Atlanta did get my house listed on MLS. From there, it went downhill. We made an error on the disclosure form (we checked yes and no on the same line).

After leaving several messages asking for help, I blasted them on their Survey.

Of course someone returned my call and pretended to help.

I re-submitted the disclosure form and to my surprise it was never changed.

I learned that from a Real Estate Agent who received the disclosure form 2 weeks after my changes.

The final straw came when an appraisal came in $65K under the asking price (Which Duffy guided us on selecting) Calling the Contracts Department was a big mistake when I was told that they would help me challenge the appraisal.

Gabe Long did not contact anyone and the Contract expired and was terminated.

Now after paying them $500.00 for not selling my home, I have to pay them another $60.00 to cancel the listing.

Truly the worst experience in trying to sell a home.

    However, I do understand things happen so I still went with it.

    Ultimately, I ended up not choosing Duffy as my realtor. I was planning to do so but there were a few things that made me wary. I will only speak to the part that I dealt with them, as that is all I can do.

    The initial phone call with Frank was amazing. He is warm, friendly and direct with business. I like direct. We set up a day for an appointment but I was in a hearing that day and had no way to know the time, so it was tentative.

    The day of my 1st apt with them, I received a call in the time that I was in a hearing. I told them these times prior, and a range when I would call. I called in that range and couldn’t get a live person. I had to hit many press 1 type things to even figure out when to leave a message.

    It was frustrating, would buyers do the same? I finally spoke with someone and they couldn’t come out until the next day. I’d stressed my situation prior and that I had to leave town. However, I do understand things happen so I still went with it.

    Never Again

    I was then told that the appointment was $150. What? I was told about the $500 if I decided to go with them, but not told about this fee. It was a surprise, and I wish I had cancelled and not paid it.

    I was wary because of these last interactions. They were very kind but my notes were forgotten, and hidden fees had already popped up and we hadn’t even met yet. I started reading reviews and found that most reviews from buyers were amazing but not really sellers. I decided to hold off and watch.

    After watching review replies, google searches and learning more of the fees, I didn’t feel trusting of it. I am a direct and upfront person and I like to deal with those who are the same. I like to be told the exact fees, what you will do, what I will do type stuff. I wrote an email to them about my concerns hoping they would be addressed. The reply didn’t feel direct.

    After going elsewhere, I let them know. They have still called several times to see if I was ready to list. It makes me glad for my decision as nothing I have told them seemed to be known. I felt like a forgotten number, but they were never rude or other.

    This is pretty much everything in a nutshell, so you can decide. Overall, my feeling is that they would be a great choice for those who basically want to sell themselves but with some tools of the trade (marketing in MLS, lockbox). I am out of town and needed a realtor who would look after things and sell it for me without my worrying about it. Hand the keys to them and let them do their thing.

    Scammer

    I would have liked to see more personalized advice when it came to considering multiple offers. Also, the e-mails that I received had so many repetitive ads attached it was hard to differentiate what news was new and what wasn’t.

    Duffy made it such a.pleasureable experience listing and selling my home with their Cusromer Support Team.

    As if finding the perfect house wasn't enough, The McCarty Team laid the entire closing process out for us.

    We found Terri from DUFFY Realty of Atlanta in January. We had decided to purchase a home and were under a crazy time crunch as our apartment lease was up in two months. After some intense looking, during which time we honed what we truly wanted, we decided to back off the hunt and be more selective as to which homes we toured.

    We settled on a few neighborhoods that we liked and Terri kept bringing us places to see. While touring a different house in our preferred neighborhood Terri noticed that the house across the street was about to be listed. She made some calls and got us in to see it right after. She found us “the one” on a hunch! Great catch, Terri!

    As if finding the perfect house wasn’t enough, The McCarty Team laid the entire closing process out for us. Jennifer McCarty and Allison Gunter provided a digital timeline to accomplish our task items, assembled professionals for insurance, financing, and even home inspection. I really loved how organized it was and appreciated how “checking off the boxes” simplified a pretty complicated and potentially stressful event.

    The selling side is a bit more work for you, but worth it.

    I would highly recomend Duffy Realty to anyone who is selling or buying a home. I used them for both and was able to save some $$. The selling side is a bit more work for you, but worth it.

    Our agent, Caroline was very knowledgeable.

    Duffy Realty was easy to work with when we bought our home. In fact, this is the second time we have used Duffy Realty. The first time, they helped us sell our house. Duffy provides information that helps set expectations and walks you through process of purchasing a home.

    Our agent, Caroline was very knowledgeable. She was able to answer all of our questions and provide professional guidance. They also work well as a team.

    When Caroline had scheduling conflicts, her co-worker Vanessa was able to make time to show the houses that we were interested in. If we decide to move again, we will certainly consider choosing Duffy Realty.

  8. Apurba Walker

    Very responsive

    Daniela Vargas from Duffy reality have taken us through all the homes we liked and submitted offers as needed. Very responsive, late working hours and extremely patient with the first time home buyers.

    The fact that they charge less in commission is well worth it to me.

    I am currently listed with Duffy Realty and so far it has been a good experience. Obviously, it is a different process than listing with one agent who is working tirelessly to sell your home – but as long as you understand that going into it then you should not be disappointed.

    The fact that they charge less in commission is well worth it to me. The processes they use are easy and straight-forward if you understand email and a smartphone.

    As stated in some of the other reviews, if your house will sell itself and the market you are in is a sellers market than Duffy Realty is a great option for you to consider. If it is a buyers market and the home needs some updating/work I would consider a traditional listing method.

    Duffy will not work as hard when it comes to marketing/actively pursuing a buyer as some agents might – but this makes since because they are charging less than other brokers/agents. However, Duffy will get you on MLS, Zillow, Realtor, etc. like all the other guys.

    Caroline Gamma was very professional and helpful through all facets of the process.

    Caroline Gamma was very professional and helpful through all facets of the process. She went through what needed to be done to our house to place it for sale. She arranged for us to see houses within the area of Cobb County that we were interested in moving to. She helped us through the financing process.
