I was referred to Rappy by a friend in 2011 to sell my home, and he did such a holistically excellent job of doing so. Unfortunately as of this day (4 realtors used so far), he set the bar so high that all other realtors have been a disappointment in comparison.
I haven’t lived in Spartanburg in over 30 years, so I was at a loss when my parents passed away and I was faced with the task of selling their home there. A Spartanburg friend suggested I enlist the help of Rappy Williams and it’s some of the best advice I’ve ever taken. Rappy knew exactly what changes needed to be made to get the house ready for market. He had contacts at his fingertips to make those repairs and cosmetic changes and they did so without breaking the bank. I cannot tell you what relief this gave me knowing that Rappy could oversee all this work. He kept me abreast of everything with phone calls and pictures. Not only does he know how to fix up a house so that it sells, but his accessibility is another thing that sets him apart from other realtors I’ve worked with. He was always in contact with me to let me know the status of the property.
Rappy is professional, extremely knowledgeable of the real estate market, and a very likable person.I can’t thank him enough for making this entire experiencesuch a pleasant one. I only wish he were licensed in my neck of the woods so that I could be just as successful finding property to purchase!!

When we decided to put our house on the market, we interviewed several realtors and chose Rappy because he gave us many pointers on the best way to present the house. Due to his many years of professional experience, we trusted what he said and we had a sales contract in less than 2 months, much to our delight. During the entire process, Rappy kept us informed with any new event and instructed us on each step. He was always available to talk and as I told him, to hold our hands at times. The closing went smoothly and without any unforeseen issues. We believe this was due to Rappy being a step ahead of the process and we thank him for making what could have been a stressful situation, a pleasant one.

My husband and I just closed on our home yesterday, and we’re absolutely amazed at how easy the entire process was! Our property had been a rental unit, so it was in great need of some TLC before we listed it. Rappy had everything set up for us, and repairs were promptly taken care of. We live out of state, so having someone we could depend on to take care of things for us was priceless!
We listed our home on a Tuesday, and by Saturday we had accepted an offer for full listing price! Rappy is very professional, makes things easy to understand, and his laid-back personality makes communicating with him enjoyable. We would highly recommend him to anyone needing to purchase or sell a home. There simply isn’t anyone out there any better!

I have sold 2 properties in Spartanburg with Rappy. He came highly recommended to me from a realtor friend in Charlotte. I could really depend on him to get the job done! He knows all the contractors in town for repairs at a reasonable price. He kept me up to date on the progress of the sale which is huge to an out of towner.
I couldn’t have done it without you, Rappy! I will miss selling properties with you!!
I hope you had a nice and relaxing 4th of July weekend. Finally got my check for the condo on Friday which was a relief for Nanette and I. We both would like to thank you very much for the great job you did in getting that place sold. We can only imagine the headaches that were involved with getting that place ready to sell and dealing with an “out of town” client; I’m sure we don’t know half of the trouble you went through. It was especially fortunate for us that we had such a nice, honest, and knowledgeable real estate agent to deal with through this process and would like you to know that we really appreciated it. We wish you the best, you deserve it. Thanks again, Carl
“Rappy did a fantastic job with selling my mother’s house. Following nine months with another agent with little activity, Rappy was able to secure a buyer and help us navigate closing within 90 days. He remained on top of issues throughout the process and was in constant contact to answer questions and facilitate the process. I greatly appreciated Rappy’s professionalism and outstanding service”.

Last May, we put our house on the market with an agent.
We were given no guidance as to what a reasonable market price might be.
We were given no guidance as to what upgrades might make the house more appealing.
The house was simply listed, and for 4 – 5 months nothing happened.
Then we met Rappy.
Rappy not only told us what upgrades were needed, but he helped us find competent people to make those changes and he spent countless hours supervising the work.
Then Rappy advised us as to what might be a reasonable price in the current market.
Voila! In four months, the house was sold for 98% of the asking price, and we were, as Rappy likes to say: “Homeless”.
Thank you, Rappy, for your hard work.

We wanted to write just to let you know how much we appreciate all that you did to get our home SOLD. We know selling our house was not an easy task, due to location, but you handled the situation in a professional and timely manner. We also realize if we had taken your experienced advice on price that we actually could have saved money and time. We rate your services high and would recommend you to others that are looking for a real estate agent.

I want to thank you for helping us sell our home. Even after paying the commission, we netted more than we would have if I had sold it myself. I appreciate the way every part was handled. You covered all your bases very professionally.
I am pleased that I can recommend you to anyone selling their home. Thanks again for a job well done.
John and I want to thank you for doing such a great job with selling our home. We were very impressed with your knowledge of the real estate business. You made several suggestions to us, all of which we are convinced sold our home. Because our home sold so quickly (in 10 days!), we were able to buy the home we had been wanting.
We recommend you to all of our friends. Thank you again for all your help.

“Thank you for all your help in finding our house, advising me in the closing of the house I sold, and closing on our new home. Because Jan and I needed to be moved and settled before the baby came, time was definitely of the essence. You are absolutely the person to have during such a crunch.”

“Mr. Williams took the time to examine our home and make suggestions that he felt would help it sell. He didn’t waste time telling us what we wanted to hear, he told us what his professional opinion was. None of the suggestions were great revelations, nor were they overly costly, they just made sense. Rappy is a true professional who gets results.”
“Thank you so much for the fanstastic job you did for me in selling my house so quickly! I was so impressed with the effeciency and professionalism I experienced from you and your team. What a wonderful experience I had with the sale of my house and thanks again!”
After searching on line for several months for my dream home, I found exactly what I had been looking for. I contacted ReMax Realty when I saw the listing in the Sunday newspaper and arranged to meet Rappy for a showing of the house. Not only was Rappy very knowledgeable about the house, he answered all of my questions and gave me very good, sound advice. He never made me feel like I was asking a silly question and he always took the time to listen to my concerns. I knew after the first showing that this would be my home – I loved everything about it. After the first showing, I called him three more times to see it and each time he was happy to show the house again as well as answering even more questions. I purchased my house in August 2014 and using Rappy Williams was the best decision I have ever made!
My other house I had put on the market for sell before I purchased my new house. I was using a different realty company. After it was listed for only two weeks, the agent wanted to drop the price. She had not even shown the house to anyone. She never made any suggestions about updating, painting or sprucing up and assured me that it would sell because it was “such a cute house.” After a few months, there were finally two showings – but I didn’t receive any offers. I decided not to renew thecontract with that agency and instead used Rappy Williams with ReMax.
He looked at the house and made several suggestions of what I would need to do for it to sell. I took his advice and made some updates and right away I had showings. The house sold in March 2015 at the original asking price.
If you have a house to sell or if you are looking to buy a new home, I would definitely recommend Rappy Williams with ReMax. He is one of the few people that I know who actually does what he says he is going to do. He is a great person and very knowledgeable but most importantly, honest. He will guide you through the entire process and relieve you of all the stress and anxiety associated with selling and buying a home.
