(Seller/Buyer/Property Management Client)

After nearly 30 years in commercial banking I retired as executive vice president of what is now BB&T. I have had a very satisfying professional relationship with Mr. Wright for over ten years. He has listed and sold several properties for me over the years, including three of my personal residences. Even more important to me, he has been fully involved in every aspect of renting and managing up to ten properties on an ongoing basis for me over the past ten years. Not once in those years have I found Mr. Wright to be anything short of highly professional and completely honest. I have greatly benefited from his attention to detail and his knowledge and expertise in real estate. He stays in touch and communicates with me on the smallest of details to make sure that we both are clear on what needs to be done. I completely trust Mr. Wright.

I may be contacted by cell phone at: (757) 286-5300 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if anyone would like to speak with me personally about John or his firm, Time Residential Realtors.

Dear Sir:

One of the more pleasant aspects of life is dealing with pros; no matter what the business. Fortunately, you have one of those pros working for your firm. The pro that I am writing about is John Wright.

In March of this year, John gave me a cold call to see if I was interested in selling our home. As I told him over the phone I thought that I would require the services of a good Realtor, but was unsure of exactly when those services would be required. Most salesmen may have passed on the opportunity, but John put me in for long term follow-up.

Religiously, he called on me every couple of weeks to see if he could be of service. For a three month span, I told him that my plans were still up in the air. Not once did John throw up his hands and quit. He kept calling until... yes, I did have a need for a Realtor.

I also told John that I would be interviewing several Realtors to see who could offer the best plan for selling our home. I interviewed five Realtors. John won hands down. John's marketing approach, presentation, and ability to make me feel at ease were head and shoulders above the other agents. I won't dwell on their shortcomings except to say that they all had one key problem: they didn't know when to shut up.

Once we got started, John called or visited on a weekly basis to ensure that we were completely satisfied. He even went as far as trimming out lawn when I injured my foot.

Finally, when I had to start my new job, John assisted my wife with the final selling and move preparations. I'm not sure if John told you this or not, but the buyers were a "unique" couple to say the least. If it wasn't for John, I'm fairly sure I may have told those folks to take a walk.

Through his patience, adept customer relations, and willingness to go the extra yard, we were able to sell our house at the price we asked for.

The services that John provided exceeded our expectations. From the very first phone call to settlement, he treated us with royal gloves. Please pass along a sincere, public thank you to John Wright for a job well done!

Subject: Outstanding Service

To: Mr. John Wright

I wanted to take time to thank you for making one of the most challenging real estate transactions a pleasure. As you know one of the agents in my office asked me to take over his business as he was leaving the area. I said I would and then he began to te me the rest of the story - as they say.

The transaction had over $9,000 dollars in repairs and several contractors involved. I was overwhelmed, as I already had several deals of my own in progress. What the heck did I sign on for? Enter the listing broker - Realtor® John Wright. When I met you I knew that God was watching out for me. I recognized your integrity right away. You were on top of all the repairs and already had the solution to any problems that might come up.

Anyone can be professional and nice when things are going good, but things were not going as expected - bad. But the worst things got the more you excelled. You were a pleasure to work with and really, really did go above and beyond what was expected of you as an agent. In seven years of real estate and twenty four years of naval service you get to meet people from a walks of life. John, you are a bright shining star in the real estate industry, and a dang nice guy too.

Thank you so much for your help. I hope we can work together again.

Your friend,

Tony Jackson, Realtor® (757) 497-8733

Angie's List Business Center Review for Time Residential

John Wright is extremely honest, professional and polite. He is everything you'd want in a property manager. He answers your calls immediately. He goes out of his way to take care of you. Any problem, no matter if it's just a leaky faucet, he is on it. There is such a difference between my old property manager and him. He is absolutely fantastic! I would highly recommend him to anyone! Property managers like him are rare. He only cares for his tenants to be happy!

RE: Notice that we will be moving

Anne and John,

Leslie and I are sadly giving you notice that we will be moving out of our home at 512 Shakespeare Drive, Virginia Beach, VA.

The four years that we were fortunate enough to rent from Time Residential has truly been a treat. Not only did we have the absolute finest real estate property management company we have ever experienced, but the two of you became family, and just like the typical family we had ou bumps and bruises. But, just as a tight knit family we were able to persevere and keep the love for each other strong. Hopefully, we could keep in touch as we move forward to our next adventure in Colorado Springs.

Anne, John, and Christian we thank you so much for being part of our family, and for allowing us to be a part of yours.

Love forever.

I want to thank you so much for all of your help and assistance you provided for me while in my transition. Your help and guidance was second to none.

Yours and John's customer service is beyond anyone's expectations, particularly from a renter's perspective. You are fair and you are genuine. I enjoyed working with you and should I need the services you provide in the VA Beach area in the future, you can be assured I will lean on you and John.

Thank you again.

To Whom It May Concern,

It has been our pleasure to utilize the services of John Wright and Time Residential Realtors in the sale of our home in Virginia Beach, Virginia. John was instrumental in selling our home in six days after the listing. He made special brochures with colored pictures of our home and gave detailed information to those who came to see our home. His real estate expertise and market research of local selling trends enabled us to get full asking price. He educated us step by step on the selling of our home and provided realistic expectations on the process as well.

John also was helpful in assisting us with accommodations after the sale of our home until our new home was completed. It was such a relief to not have the worry of finding a rental on a month to month lease that would accept a small pet as well.

The services provided by John and Time Residential can be summed up as complete with a personal touch. John is very competent and knowledgeable about real estate and takes the time to know the needs of his clients. He did not hesitate to get started on the sale of our home after the initial meeting and was very professional, organized and thorough.

John also assisted us in finding a home to build in a very suitable location. We were satisfied with the service we received and would highly recommend John and Time Residential Realtors to others.

Thank you.

Dear Sir,

I would just like to drop a note of thanks for your services rendered on the sale of our home in Chickasaw Forest. As you know, we had a difficult selling situation with poor market conditions, high equity, and a high interest mortgage. We had attempted selling the house ourselves for two months and then listed with a prominent Orlando real estate company for four more months, but still no offers.

After listing with your agency, we not only secured a qualified buyer, but sold at a price higher than we had been advised was possible by our previous Realtor. What made the difference? We feel that your agency had a better feel for the housing market in our neighborhood and that you marketed our home more aggressively, i.e., we feel you "worked" our house, not just listed it.

We have moved a great deal and have been through several homes, (this is our fifth interstate move), but this is the first closing where we didn't begrudge our Realtor's commission.

Thank you!

Dear Sirs,

This letter is to register our extreme satisfaction with the services of a local Realtor, John Wright of Time Residential Realtors in Virginia Beach. He went beyond just finding us a wonderful home, He has been a font of knowledge and a bastion of customer service to us since signing our lease nine months ago, no matter how small the matter. His help has extended to areas that are normally beyond that required of a Realtor.

The words of satisfaction and pleasure we express to other people pale in comparison to what he has done for us. We cannot more highly recommend his services to anyone relocating to the Hampton Roads area. We have dealt with many outstanding Realtors during our lifetimes, and he is beyond comparison with all of them. He deserves to be highly commended.

Dear John,

Just wanted to take a minute to let you know how much we've appreciated working with you. It's been nice to deal with someone who is truly a professional.

"Actually", what made us respect you the most was the fact that you never backed down and did the best for the seller throughout and yet you still dealt fairly with us and protected us as buyers also.

We will try our best to send you referral business and hope that in this transaction we have acquired a new friend as well as a nice home.

Thanks again,

To Whom it May Concern:

We have just recently purchased a home from Mr. John Wright of Code IV Properties which we bought under the lease option plan.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Wright and also to let you know what a pleasure it was dealing with him. Mr. Wright did an excellent job for us as far as service and the way in which he helped us to get into our home.

From the beginning Mr. Wright was most helpful, by helping us to obtain a refrigerator for our home and he also used his time and his truck to pick it up and deliver it to us. He also supplied us with the paint for the inside of the house and spray so we coul paint and exterminate before we moved in.

During the course of the 5 months which we lived there under the lease option before the final papers were signed, we had to deal with Mr. Wright several times on different matters regarding the house and the forthcoming mortgage. On all occasions he was very helpful and offered any assistance we needed.

I would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Wright or Code IV Properties to anyone who would be planning to buy or sell a home, especially if they would be wanting to buy under a lease option plan. Mr. Wright did everything he could to make the purchase o our home go as smoothly as possible.

Dear Ms. Helfant:

I have just recently sold a home through Realtor, John Wright.

I just want you to know that John Wright is one of the nicest, finest, people I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with.

The entire transaction was handled in a very professional manner and yet, in a warm and friendly way.

John went above and beyond what was expected. He very graciously offered his services in the physical removal of the content of the dwelling... not only offered, but did in fact assist. He willingly gave what mounted to a full day of his precious and valuable time, for which I will remain eternally grateful.

John is indeed, a very rare and generous human being. Would you please be so kind as to thank John again for me for all his kindness.
