When it came time to list my Brentwood home for sale, I asked around to find out who the best realtor in town was. After several recommendations for Dick and Judy Williams of Crye-Leike, I scheduled a meeting with Judy. From the start, I knew this team was the best of the best even before learning that they have been rated the number 1 sales team in Nashville for the last four years running. Before Judy left our house on the first meeting, she was already on the phone calling clients to schedule showings for them to view our home. Dick and Judy have provided invaluable feedback and input about the state of the housing market in Nashville and specifically my neighborhood which helped guide me in my decision on pricing. We initially had one low ball offer and frankly they told me to turn it down. I’ve never had a partnership with a realtor where they “had my back” enough to tell me to walk away from an offer in hand. I have the utmost respect for Dick and Judy. They have an amazing assistant, Nancy, that is as on top of her game as they are. In the first two weeks of putting our house on the market, we have close to 20 showings and our first open house alone had a dozen couples visit. Dick and Judy printed up the most beautiful brochures of our home which highlighted the professional photos they had taken. They have mailed postcards out to the community announcing our sale and they have advertised in the Nashville Tennessean for us. Dick and Judy also had a video made of our property. They have spent considerable time and money making our house as visible as possible to potential buyers. They are the most responsive real-estate team I’ve come across. I could go on and on for hours about Dick and Judy. But the best part is that while I’ve only known them from the sale of this house, they have become instant friends that I expect to stay in touch with for years. If you are looking to buy or sell property, you are doing yourself an extreme disservice if you do not meet with Dick and Judy. I’ll be shocked if you don’t feel the same as I do. They have a perfect combination of sales talent, dedication to excellence, and attention to detail that is needed. There is no question why they have been awarded the number one team in all of Nashville year after year. Simply put, I love Dick and Judy Williams and would never consider using anyone else. Whether you are selling a small townhouse or a McMansion, Dick and Judy will treat your sale or purchase as if it’s the only thing on their plate and give you the honest answers that so many other realtors will not.

Judy & Dick, wow! That was so fast. You two are amazing. I didn’t worry one bit. You handled everything so beautifully. Thank you so much. When I’m ready to buy again I’m calling you. Many Thanks!

It is our genuine pleasure to write this letter of reference for Dick and Judy Williams, whom we have been blessed to know for the last 4 years. In late 2011, we decided to purchase a new home. We engaged Dick and Judy to represent us in the sale of our old home as well as assist us in finding our new home.

Dick and Judy worked closely with us on preparation of our old home, and we listed the house for sale the first week of January 2012. Much to our very pleasant surprise, given the challenging state of the market at that time, we received an offer on the house the first weekend it was on the market. We subsequently executed a contract to sell that house and diligently began the search for a new house.

We were very impressed with the extensive and sound knowledge Dick and Judy have of the prevailing real estate market in general and the Nashville area market in particular. They patiently worked with us as we looked at literally dozens of houses in virtually every possible qualifying neighborhood over the course of several months. They honored every request we made about viewing specific homes, even when they knew the property would not be a good fit for us. Dick and Judy are very honest and straightforward, yet very comfortable discussing alternate perspectives and opinions. They are neither mindless “yes” people nor negative naysayers. We greatly appreciated their ability and willingness to engage in objective discussions about the positives, negatives, possible upside and potential pitfalls of any given property.

Dick and Judy are energetic and bring a level of enthusiasm to the process that is always uplifting and invigorating. We have had the opportunity to spend time with Dick and Judy in a number of different settings, and are impressed by how effortlessly they constantly work in the best interests of their clients. Perhaps most import to us, we have found Dick and Judy to simply be very good, honest people who love their work, truly value their customers, and are very good at what they do. They deliver results and exceed expectations.

We are honored to have had the opportunity to work with Dick and Judy and would choose to work with them again without hesitation.

The service and personal attention we received from Dick and Judy Williams was outstanding!  Their commitment to their clients is evident from your first contact to well after the closing.

Dick and Judy expertly advised us on how to get the best offer for our previous home.  They quickly identified minimal changes needed to our existing home to add the most “curb appeal”.  Their contacts in the community will help you get your home ready at a fraction of the cost and at lightning speed.  We received an offer on the very first day on the market and had a contract signed within 2 days!

The most impressive part of working with Judy and Dick is that they are a no-pressure sales team.  In fact, there were many homes that we felt would be acceptable but they both counseled us to be patient and wait for our dream home.  That’s completely unheard of!  As usually, they were absolutely right.  We are head-over-heals in love with our new home and are so thankful for their guidance and patience to ensure we got the best value purchase!

Their extensive knowledge, experience and professionalism make Dick and Judy Williams an exceptional and high-caliber team.  This is evident as they navigate through the many hurdles of a real estate transaction including contract negotiation, financing challenges and dealing with the inevitable emotions of a life changing move.   They do an excellent job of keeping you informed throughout the process and you can rest assured that you are being well taken care of.

Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Dick and Judy Williams. We could not have asked for better realtor to guide us through the process.

There is a big difference between finding a house and finding a HOME.   Judy and Dick understand that difference and use it as a guiding force when working with you to buy a place. They really took the time to get to know us and find out exactly what we were looking for.  They are great communicators, a ton of fun to drive around in the car with for hours, and became like family during the process.

One thing that really stood out was their tenacity during the negotiation process.  There were many times Judy talked me off the ledge and reassured me everything would be ok. They took care of us so well.. and made things effortless.

I’ll be recommending them to anyone needing to buy or sell a home.

Thanks, Judy and Dick!
