Dear Metro Detroit Home Sellers & Home Buyers who are looking to make a move in the next 30 to 90 days….
With so many beautiful homes in Oakland County, Wayne County and Macomb County we’ve likely Sold a home or know of a possible “Dream Home” that is soon to become available” For Sale”.
The challenge is – and I see this – you may not know who to turn to that can truly deliver and find the right home for you. Whether buying or selling your home, you may be tired of being too far from your friends and family. Maybe you have a place that is just too small, or you have a change in your family situation.
Who can you work with that understands your needs, that you really trust, and frankly, will enjoy working with? The biggest pain in home buying or selling is not a lack of information, but too much conflicting information. Other challenges are not fully understanding the process, not having a clear plan and not having a capable team to help you get your real estate goals accomplished.
I’m not sure if you know this and it’s common, according to the National Association of REALTORS Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, 77% of recent sellers contacted only one agent before ﬁnding the agent they worked with to sell their home. Only 64% of recent buyers were very satisfied with their recent home buying process.

Christina contacted me from a realtor.com form. It was probably one month looking for a home. I don’t really have any complaints. Something that you worked hard to make sure of was to accommodate anything I needed. The only big concern was that the property. I didn’t have a homestead exemption so there were some issues with the having to pay the higher property taxes for the summer with that and then trying to get the mortgage company to base the escrow on what it would be next year instead. We were able to negotiate with the seller to kick in and help cover some of those costs and we were able to get get everything actually a lot a lot better than that . I appreciate your courtesy. You would ask questions and then you would follow through.
Actually it wasn’t hard to find the home it was just a matter of actually getting the home, working with the mortgage company in everything. Get the house was actually no problem. We’d be like “hey we found a home. Okay we’ll meet you there at eleven”. So it was perfect the way we found this home. Christina suggested this home that I was seeing on the website and just kind of passed through and she said “hey this house is really nice it’s move-in ready” and I’m like” really?” and she says “yes!”. It is a beautiful home it’s got a brand-new kitchen. You guys were our trail blazers and you got us through this completely. Even when we had some negative thoughts, you always kept us positive and mentally strong.
I feel positive about the purchase. I really do think that my change of homes will help free up a lot of money for my sons college as well as me not having any house payments. I was so glad to work with Mr. Calhoun, he is so professional and so is Christina, they both are so professional. I have never encountered a realtor like you guys. You showed me the professionalism, the kindness, the generosity that I deserve. I do appreciate it.
Shawn and Christina helped out family find our home. They were able to get us into view the houses we wanted to see in a timely manner. The are professional, thorough and efficient realtors!
A friend of mine recommended you and we had been talking about you. I was looking for a nice home or condominium. It was kind of difficult at first but there were so many good choices so we saw them quickly. It was a lot of teamwork involved. They got my perfect home.
These guys are very reliable! They were patient and reasonable to the end! What I really like about Shawn is that he is honest and he will give you advice on anything about real estate. I definitely recommend anyone that wants to buy/sell a home to work with them.
I was kind of in between trying to find a ranch with a nice-size yard, or a condominium but where you can get the best of both worlds. Trying to find the right area with what I was looking for it was kind of difficult. Sometimes we found the right house, but it wasn’t the right area. We enjoyed working with you, and we looked at as many houses as we needed to to find the perfect one.
I decided to take on a more fiscally responsible role. 2020 was myself-imposed deadline, so one of the things that was looming in my mind were the taxes that I was paying on my lot every year. I didn’t want to get rid of the lot when I got your letter. That letter just made everything clear for me. It helped me make that tough decision. Working with you and everybody that that’s associated with you and your organization has been great. I have no regrets. Every question I had was answered to my satisfaction. When dealing with my money, whoever I’m dealing with has to have excellent customer service otherwise I don’t want to deal with them. Whether it’s a restaurant, selling my lot, finding some shoes, I demand excellent customer service for my money. You guys are great.
I told them my situation where I needed to do a short sale because of finances that got out of control and that I could no longer continue with this house. I had to get rid of it and through a short sale. The Calhoun’s are very professional and they helped us to accomplish our goals. I would recommend those with different situations that people find themselves in to Pretty home realty – because sometimes you’re in a situation and it’s a private situation and you might love where you’re living but you can’t stay there anymore and you need some assistance. Christina and Shawn, when we met them, right away we felt comfortable. We felt we could ask any question without being embarrassed or ashamed and also they directed us this situation and helped us along. Actually I loved it because they were there when I needed them. When I called, they answered the phone. I didn’t have to track them down so they took the stress out of the situation.
I actually feel like Shawn and Christina are part of my family. When when I met them it was as if I knew them all the time. They were very patient with me I ask them question and they would say “I’m working for you and whatever you want me to do just let me know” I appreciated that and Shawn’s beautiful, wonderful wife Christina, she’s like a daughter to me or granddaughter so I love them both. I definitely will recommend you to my friends and family to work with them to help sell their home because of your patience and how you explain things. You do what’s supposed to be done, the right thing.
