If your faith in real estate agents is shaky, the Carol Pyfrom Realty team transforms real estate skeptics into believers. As a member of one of Greenville’s top real estate teams, I work hard to sell homes and help buyers find new places to call home. Here’s what some of my recent clients had to say:

“He restored our faith in real estate agents!”

“Communication was beyond expectations! Highly recommend to anyone buying or selling a home.”

“Phil is an honest and caring person and Realtor.”

“He kept to his promise of doing everything possible to get our house sold quickly and at the right price.”

“Phil should be the benchmark upon which all other agents are measured. He is a consummate professional.”

I look forward to meeting you and adding you to my list of satisfied real estate clients. (more…)
