Ray worked very hard with us to develop a plan for the sale of our home. And then kept us on top of the progress throughout the whole process. It gave us a sense of relief that we didn't have to worry about anything as everything moved along.

Ray Stearns worked tirelessly to get our house sold. Our property wasn't the most high-dollar sale out there, but Ray worked at it like it was! We relocated out-of-state, and Ray was able to keep the sale going without missing a beat! I'd give a 6-star rating if I could! Ray has the connections and experience to connect buyers with sellers, and he won't quit until your house is sold. GREAT JOB!!!

Ray did several tasks such as taking care of the wasps nests and turning the water off when I asked him and seen that the radon equipment was installed so I didn't have any worries. Being a woman I certainly appreciated his help.

We are very happy with having Ray Stearns as our agent and how tolerable Ray was with us and what we wanted in our house selection. Ray did a great job on helping us with getting all the paper work finished and getting the repairs done. Ray walked through the house with us and even pointed out some of the things we needed to pay attention to. Together we would find things that were good and things that needed to be fixed. That's why I feel Ray is one of the top agents because he's in it for you not just for himself. Besides that everything went smooth and quick just like he said and he did most of the work! Ray always had the answers to our questions and if not, he would get the answers. You couldn't ask for a better agent. I would recommend Ray Stearns to everyone that is looking to buy a house in town or out of town of Mason City. Thank You!

The timing issues of selling this home and buying a home in Minnesota very critical and due to Ray's professionalism and genuine caring our goal to close on this home on May 13, 2016 and close on our new purchase on May 16,2016 will be a reality.

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Ray Stearns as we looked at houses and found our new home. We feel that Ray Stearns went above and beyond for us during this time.
