We strongly endorse the entire team at LG Real Estate for their local market knowledge, professional ethics, responsiveness, and candor. 

Yes, they tell the truth even if it might conflict with what you’d like to hear, based on the team’s many years of experience and a strong philosophy to do the right thing.  We have sold 6 homes in 5 different states and our experience with Lenda, Lee Ann, and Danya far surpassed all of our previous transactions.  From devising a marketing plan, to thoughtful staging, leading negotiations specific to the offer, managing the inspection process, and seeing us through closing, they provided expert advice and empathetic support throughout.

Lenda and her team were able to secure the sale of our home in record time to our satisfaction.

We first heard about Lenda in 2013 through people at Cisco systems. When the time came to sell our house, we made the mistake of not contacting her first. As soon as we remedied this big mistake, Lenda and her fantastic team went to work. Thanks to their great experience, knowledge of the local market and their network of  first rate business contacts, Lenda and her team were able to secure the sale of our home in record time to our satisfaction. Even though the fact that we are living half a continent away from Cary, NC, the willingness of everybody we dealt with, to help with everything, their quick and always friendly response to every question we had, as well as to every problem that came up, made this endeavor much less stressful than we had anticipated. We are very thankful to the whole Team and would recommend them in a heartbeat.

C. Thomas

When we relocated to Cary from Massachusetts last year, Brian was incredibly helpful in guiding us through the entire process and made us feel comfortable right from the start with his easy going nature and professionalism.

He took the time to understand exactly what we were looking for in both a community and a home. Being a Raleigh native, Brian really knows the Triangle area inside and out, which was important to us being new to North Carolina. He previewed many homes for us while we were out of state in an effort to make our house hunting trips easier and more productive. If we were ever in the market for a new home, Brian would be our first call.

S. Mattaliano

Brian helped our family find our new home and we love it!

He not only helped us find our home but helped us through the entire process from start to finish while our home was being built. He makes the home search fun and is very knowledgeable and honest about the housing market. We really enjoyed working with him!

N. Sundstrom

We highly recommend Lenda Goulding and her team at Coldwell Banker Howard Perry & Watson.

They have a strong reputation and bring honesty, integrity, and dedication to the real estate arena.  Lenda started with a concise strategy, and she and her team delivered a professional path through the pricing, staging, contracting and closing of our home. They also helped us purchase our new home, too. To summarize, they did a heck of a job! We wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

From staging the house and setting the price through the sale negotiations and close, Lenda and her team were always there for us.

Lenda Goulding and her wonderful team at LG Real Estate assisted my wife and I in the sale of our Preston home.  From staging the house and setting the price through the sale negotiations and close, Lenda and her team were always there for us.  We like to offer an especially warm thanks to Lenda’s team members Lee Ann Crowder and Danya McHugh.  They took care of the endless list of details which needed tracking, attending and closing.

My wife and I are now moving onto retirement, but we wish to thank Lenda and her team for their assistance in the sale of our Preston home.  We would highly recommend their services to anyone seeking a highly professional and qualified real estate team.

R. Phillips

After interviewing several local realtors I met with Lenda and knew immediately she was the best fit for me.

Over the years we have sold 4 houses with varying degrees of success. When we decided to sell our house with acreage in Apex this past spring, I was determined to find a realtor with whom I could work comfortably and who would listen to my thoughts and needs. After interviewing several local realtors I met with Lenda and knew immediately she was the best fit for me. Lenda and her team of Lee Ann and Danya visited my house and gave me reasonable suggestions about upgrades and improvements but left it up to me about which of these I felt like I could afford to do. They were always available by email or phone and responded quickly to my questions. As a result of their interest and help to me our house was under contract in less than a week and closed in less than a month. Thank you, LGRE team, for your personal attention and help.

S. Rowe

Lenda has the best market awareness of any realtor in this area. 

She understands how to price houses and maximize exposure for your listing.  Lenda had great insight into how to value our home to sell within the time frame we wanted and how to prepare our house for listing without requiring expensive changes.  When helping us find our new home, Lenda showed us a wide variety of possibilities to fit our needs and knew the history of every house we looked at.  Her team concept provides ongoing support to clients through every phase of buying and selling.  They were always flexible with our schedule, quick to respond to anything we needed and handled negotiations professionally.  Lenda and her team made our purchase and sale transactions easy and efficient.

 

R. Clevenger

We would definitely recommend Lenda and her team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

We recently worked with Lenda to find our new home.  She is friendly, open and honest and her knowledge of this market is a great resource to anyone buying or selling a home in this area.  Lenda worked diligently to make sure we found exactly what we were looking for and her entire team was always available and accommodating to our wants and needs.  Her guidance really helped us make the right decision and we always felt like her primary goal was to ensure we would ultimately be happy in our new home. I felt like I could be myself with Lenda and tell her my honest thoughts and ideas.  We would definitely recommend Lenda and her team to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

D. Sonday

Lenda’s knowledge of this market and the Cary area was invaluable.

I was immediately impressed by how quickly Lenda was able to hone in on our wants and needs when looking for a new home and by her ability to balance the subtleties of what we were both looking for.   Lenda’s knowledge of this market and the Cary area was invaluable.  She was extremely patient and never made us feel like we were being too picky.  Preeminent in her mind, was to make sure that we ended up in the right house.  The whole team at LG Real Estate was great at keeping things on track.

S. Fry

Lenda’s enthusiasm and reputation did not disappoint.

LG Real Estate recently helped us sell our house.  Lenda’s enthusiasm and reputation did not disappoint, and we were so glad that we chose her as our realtor.  She really has her finger on the pulse of the market.   Lenda was extremely helpful in making valuable suggestions to prepare our house for listing and was always accommodating to specific requests that we had.  The entire team at LG Real Estate was excellent and made sure that the entire process went smoothly.  

 

L. Adams

LG Real Estate makes buying or selling a home easy.

I have completed several transactions with Lenda. I have always gone to her because of her stellar reputation and she has never failed to deliver. Lenda is reliable and extremely knowledgeable of the market. The service that she and the entire staff at LG Real Estate provide is wonderful. Someone is always available to answer any questions that you have and the team is always in touch to keep you updated. LG Real Estate makes buying or selling a home easy.

E. Carver

We knew we were in good hands in times of a difficult real estate market. 

We worked with Lenda and her team to buy our new home and sell our old home.  It didn’t take us long to discover that Lenda’s knowledge and expertise were top notch.  When looking for a new home, she knew details about each house and neighborhood, and she gave us valuable insight into the variations between subdivisions and upcoming changes that could affect us.  Her team worked together extremely well and continued to give us their full effort and attention for as long as it took to complete the sale of our old home.  We knew we were in good hands in times of a difficult real estate market. 

H. Suddreth

Her team does a great job managing all the aspects of closing.

Lenda treated us like we were her own children.  She was honest and knowledgeable.  She knew so much about the Cary and Apex areas and was able to provide us with valuable insight about things that we otherwise would not have known, even though I grew up in the area.  Lenda always had our best interests at heart and steered us in the right direction.  Her team does a great job managing all the aspects of closing and makes the process seem so easy for their clients.

L. Davis

She genuinely wanted to make sure that we were happy with our purchase.

Lenda’s responsiveness was the first thing that impressed me.  She worked Saturday after Saturday to help us find the right home.  Even after we changed the parameters that we had originally given to her, Lenda started our search over again with equal effort and enthusiasm.  She really helped to balance the key requirements that my husband and I were each looking for in a new home and was always candid about the houses and neighborhoods we were considering.  She genuinely wanted to make sure that we were happy with our purchase.

I. Roach

Lenda and her team really go above and beyond what is expected of a realtor.

Everything that Lenda told us about the neighborhoods we were looking at was right on the money.  Her in depth knowledge of this area is second to none.  She knows details about each home and each neighborhood, including schools, the reputation of specific builders and future expansions that could ultimately impact you.  We always felt like Lenda’s primary goal was to make sure we were happy with our new home, and not simply to make a quick sale.  Lenda and her team really go above and beyond what is expected of a realtor.

E. Bliss

We truly had a wonderful experience with them.

We knew that Lenda was going to be the realtor for us from our first meeting with her.   You can tell with Lenda that she is not just looking for a quick sale.  She helped my wife and I determine a fair asking price for our house with very thoughtful consideration to all the factors, including the general market, our neighborhood and the specific condition and presentation of our home.  She did not just make broad generalizations about price based on other sales.  We were really impressed with Lenda’s knowledge of our neighborhood and the tremendous effort that her entire team put into working with us.  Lenda and her team are so professional and made the sale of our house so easy at a time when the market was very tough.  We truly had a wonderful experience with them.

M. Elliott

Because of Lenda and her team, my house sold in less than a month.

Lenda and her team are very professional. They are easy to work with and were always quick to respond to any questions or concerns that I had.  Because of Lenda and her team, my house sold in less than a month and the transaction went very smoothly.

S. Gardner

I would highly recommend Lenda to anyone looking for a realtor in this area.

The two operative words that describe Lenda and her team are “professional” and “caring”.  The sale of our house was complicated by the fact that the closing involved several simultaneous transactions on the selling and buying side.  There were multiple inspections and closings, all happening on the same day.  Lenda and her team did a terrific job coordinating all the moving pieces in a calm and professional manner.  They led us through the transaction and really knew what they were doing.  It is very apparent that Lenda and her team care very much for their clients and always have your best interest at heart.  Lenda was recommended to us by friends who had been extremely happy with their experience and we were not disappointed.  I would highly recommend Lenda to anyone looking for a realtor in this area.

C. Broms

Lenda and her team were great to work with. 

They were very thorough in dealing with all aspects of selling the house, including staging it appropriately, dealing with buyer feedback and nogotiating an offer.  They were able to help us maximize what we could get out of the house, especially in this really tough real estate market.

C. Winters

LG Real Estate is all that and a bag of chips!

In this market, you need experience, knowledge, a great attitude, and business savvy - LG Real Estate is all that and a bag of chips! The sale of my house took less than a month, thanks to Lenda and team. A great experience from start to finish. I highly recommend them to anyone and everyone who asks. 

K. Weems

Our experience with Lenda and her team was phenomenal.

Lenda and her team made a very stressful experience of moving to a new city actually enjoyable. Lenda initially spent a great deal of time talking with us to learn about our family and our situation to best understand exactly what we were looking for. Once she understood what we were looking for, she showed us only those houses that met our needs.

If I could sum up the experience, I would say Lenda's primary focus was finding us the right home in the right neighborhood that was perfect for us. The sale was completely secondary, which was a pleasant surprise and something we have not experienced frequently in the Real Estate industry. Once we found the right home, Lenda acted on our behalf to make sure every detail from the inspection to the survey to the decoration to the closing was handled flawlessly. That was where Lenda's team assisted and answered every question we had in an extremely timely fashion and handled every detail. Her team was amazing and helped throughout the entire process. I have already recommended Lenda and her team to two of my friends who are moving to the area.

J. Minicucci

When I first met Lenda, my impression was that she was a very professional, seasoned real estate pro.

My wife and I engaged her to sell our Weston Estates home, and she definitely lived up to my expectations. Not only does she have a great “supporting cast” that handled the marketing and quickly arranged for some repairs, she also came through as a poised negotiator and ally when it came to writing a contract and getting us all to the closing table.

This was the fourth home we've sold, and in the past, I've worked with brokers who really tried to get me to bend one way or the other. Not Lenda. She gave me good advice, and then she respected my decisions. It was a positive experience working with Lenda, probably more so than any other realtor with which I\'ve worked. She was every bit the professional she presented herself to be, and I would use her again without hesitation.

A. Budlong

Lenda and her team have made selling our family home a very pleasant and easy experience.

Due to the current reports regarding a decline in the housing market, I was concerned that selling our house would take quite a while or require us to lower the price more than we were comfortable. Because Lenda understood our need for a quick sale as well as our desire to get the optimal benefit for the sale, our home was marketed at just the right price. Lenda had not one, but two offers within the first 24 hours on the market! Once the offer was accepted, the necessary paperwork was completed by Lenda's team with very minimal input on my part. It was not necessary for me to leave work to attend the closing; the team took care of that as well.

Once the closing was pending, Lenda was extremely helpful in finding an appropriate and beautiful home for my family. She has truly exceeded all of my expectations, and I would highly recommend
her team of helpful and competent associates to anyone considering either finding or selling a home. Her experience in Cary and Preston in particular really made what could have been a very stressful experience a very enjoyable one.

****Another important note to buyers with school age children: Lenda knows very well how the complicated school districts within Wake County operate, and what schools are designated for what areas.

S. McMullen

I have a difficult time imagining any agent on the planet being more effective, efficient, professional, or competent than Lenda Goulding.

Selling a house (for us at least) was like blending raw—there is no better way to explain it—emotion with financially driven investment logic. How do you put a price tag on the structure that was the scene for 95 percent of your most cherished memories?

Lenda is an absolute artist in helping families navigate those waters (and my sense is “those waters” are different for each family she encounters). With a plan in place, she, Lee Ann, and the rest of her team literally sprang into action. I was amazed how quickly they produced desired results.The day after our closing, I called Lenda and said the following:

“You have probably never worked less for a full commission…nor deserved it more.”

I have never made a more accurate statement.

I’m confident she doesn’t bat a 1000, and I’m sure every now and then she runs into situations that don’t end up as “storybook” as ours did, but without any hesitation whatsoever I would suggest that if you are thinking about selling your home, and you don’t at least put Lenda on your list of “agents to interview,” you have made a very large mistake.

S. & M. Shriver

Lenda is a sound financial and emotional investment.

As true “Prestonians,” we have owned three houses in Preston, and Lenda has guided us through every step of the way on every transaction. In May, when the opportunity came along for us to purchase in an area of Preston we had always wanted to live in, we jumped on it but knew it would mean having what all home buyers dread: two mortgages until our house sold.

Lenda clearly outlined the landscape of the current market but assured us that us our house would sell. Her highly expert team designed a fantastic marketing program for our property and encouraged us to relax and concentrate on the details of moving because they would handle the rest. Every detail throughout the process was carefully executed by her team.

Much to our amazement, Lenda brought us a contract overthe asking price within two weeks of our home being on the market. If you have ever bought or sold a house, you are aware there is often a long road between contract and closing. Having a long history with us as clients, Lenda knows I tend to over analyze and obsess over the details. She and her staff kept us advised throughout the process. I am almost certain that there were obstacles to overcome, but it was seamless to us, thanks to the Lenda Goulding team.

In a world where everyone is a realtor and it sometimes seems senseless to spend the money listing when you can “sell it yourself,” we can speak with great confidence that a working relationship with Lenda is a sound financial and emotional investment.

H. Cooke

Before we knew it, our house sold, and we are more than grateful to Lenda and her fabulous team.

We undertook to sell our home in Preston through a discount broker one year ago, before we truly understood the value that a professional like Lenda Goulding delivers. Our experience taught us important lessons which we have since shared with homeowners who approach us before listing their property.

Prior to contacting Lenda, our showings were sparse. That important fact aside, we felt pretty much out there on our own throughout the entire process. When we came to the realization that we needed to change course, a number of people suggested we contact Lenda. In our initial interview with her, she displayed professionalism and a contagious "can do" attitude. What a relief after so many months of hoping, waiting, and craving communication from an informed source.

Lenda took charge by promptly advising us on key upgrades that would greatly increase the likelihood of a sale. She even went so far as to spruce up our empty house with eye-catching adornments, a gesture that truly exceeded our expectations. She contacted us at least once weekly to share specific feedback from potential buyers who had toured our home. Through our vital interaction with Lenda and her top notch assistant, Lee Ann Crowder, we gained a better perspective on overall market conditions and trends.

Before we knew it, our house sold, and we are more than grateful to Lenda and her fabulous team.

H. & E. Zeh

Lenda’s strongest point, however, was in the sale negotiation.

Lenda Goulding recently helped us sell our home in Weston Estates, and I would highly recommend her to anyone seriously wanting to sell their home. We were first impressed with her superior job of appropriately pricing our home versus others for sale in the neighborhood, especially given the uniqueness of our home. She then created a great virtual tour and home brochure that highlighted the key attributes of our home, using excellent photos and layout.

Lenda’s strongest point, however, was in the sale negotiation. Clearly she is at the top of the market in this respect, and it was the main reason we hired her. She is very personable and pleasant to deal with; she’s someone you would want to know after the transaction is complete. I am glad to count her as a friend and would unquestionably use her again in the future.

M. Barone

Whether you are listing or buying, Lenda should be your first call.

After listing my home with another agent for six months, I looked around to see what everyone else was doing. It occurred to me that when Lenda\'s sign went in front of a house, it was never followed by someone else's. She always gets it sold.

I travel a lot, so Lenda did whatever it took to ease my mind, from putting the trash can on the curb when I was out of town, to ensuring my home was locked after a showing. She has an amazing ability to get to know you and your needs without being intrusive.

From the time I signed, I stopped worrying because she made it so easy. She has an incredible capacity for remembering details and a good barometer for knowing when she needs to call because I never felt overwhelmed or under-informed. She is the consummate professional balancing market knowledge, integrity and confidence, giving me the assurance I needed, but had been unable to find in another realtor.

H. Cooke

Selling our home with Lenda was a great experience.

After six months of trying to sell our home with another realtor who didn’t specialize in the Cary area, we chose Lenda Goulding because we had seen her signs around the neighborhood and heard good things about her.

Selling our home with Lenda was a great experience. We had a lot more showings, and we attribute that to Lenda’s knowledge of the area and her emphasis on effective advertising. We could even access her website to track showings and read feedback. From advice on inexpensive ways to update our home to negotiating the offer, she was always positive, encouraging and professional.

S. and J. Mesaros

Lenda’s no-pressure style appealed to us when we first started looking in Preston.

Lenda’s no-pressure style appealed to us when we first started looking in Preston. Instead of calling us a lot, she contacted us regularly by e-mail to let us know of homes coming on the market and price reductions on homes we had expressed an interest in. There was no pressure to make an appointment, just the information and a phone number if we were ready to move.

When we did decide to make a move, she and her staff handled everything, and even gave us helpful advice as we sold our former home on our own. We recommend her to all our friends.

S. and K. O’Leary

Three words that describe Lenda and her team are integrity, honesty and straightforwardness.

I got to know Lenda when one of her colleagues approached my wife and me with a buyer who had to have our house. We weren’t looking to move, but we were willing to look at other options in the neighborhood. We contacted Lenda initially to see one of her listings that turned out not to meet our needs. But in listening to what we wanted, she quickly led us to the right property.

Three words that describe Lenda and her team are integrity, honesty and straightforwardness. She’s super friendly, too.

B. Deering

To Lenda, real estate is more than a job.

When it was time to sell my house I went back to someone I trusted. Lenda has assisted me in both selling and buying my homes. During a very difficult time in my life I was trying to sell and buy a home, and Lenda was very sensitive to my situation and also to the fact that this was the first time I had ventured out on my own to make such a large purchase.

Recently Lenda orchestrated the sale of my home by recognizing a customer who was interested in my home and was trying to sell their home. She was able to make it work for both of us. To Lenda, real estate is more than a job. She sees the people behind the sale and makes the difference.
