★★★★★"I am writing this letter of recommendation for Holley Madden so that any future clients may know her character, dedication and knowledge. Holley has represented my wife and I in several real estate transactions on both the buy and sell side. Her knowledge of the home real estate market is second to none and her dedication is constant. Holley truly cares personally for her client's interests as anyone who has worked with her can tell you. She is aggressive and not afraid to give advice and direction, she is not one to sit back settle for mediocrity. This is what separates Holley from other realtors that we have dealt with through the years. Holley is the only person we would consider to represent our interests! Holley is ethical and honest and when you combine that with her KNOWLEDGE of the market you have a winner. I strongly recommend Holley as the realtor of choice! Please feel to contact me if you have any detailed questions about our past experiences.." - Paul and Lindsay Laudadio
“Holley Madden was our Realtor when we moved to Houston. She is extremely knowledgeable about the different areas of the Houston metro area and did a great job of understanding our commute time tolerance. Her extensive connections with service people (pest, builders, plumbers, landscape, etc) made moving into our house super easy and efficient. She is my go to person, 3 years after we bought our home, for resources on anything we need to do in terms of improvements. We value her knowledge and experience!"
“I always thought that realtors added no value to the process of buying or selling a home. And then we worked with Holley. What makes Holley stand out is that she is the best kind of people person. She learns her clients’ needs and priorities because she cares deeply about them. And because she wants what is best for them, she then goes to great lengths on their behalf. I cannot more highly recommend Holley."
“A native Houstonian, Holley has an expert understanding of the housing market and trends. She is spot-on in her analysis of the market value of homes and will add so much value to you in your transaction on that level alone. But additionally, Holley understands what her clients need out of their homes and points out where a prospective house falls short or meets the mark. She will identify things clients have not considered as to both market value and suitability for your individual needs. In a business where knowledge is power, and where some might use the asymmetry of information between clients and professional agents to serve themselves, Holley is different. You can trust her to put your best interests above her own. She wants her clients to be happy and lifts heaven and earth to make that happen. Our only mistake in our real estate transactions was not getting Holley to represent us from the start."
“We first met Holly Madden when she sold our house 6 years ago. She did an excellent job dealing with the unique needs of a high profile client such as managing the details when we were not around and going the extra mile to make sure things happened on tight timelines. We got top dollar for our home and would use her again on a future house sale or purchase. We have referred her to many others within the NBA community and they have all been very happy with her. "
★★★★★"As someone who has had the pleasure of working with Holley Madden as both a buyer and a seller, I would like to take this opportunity to assure you that you are in good hands. She was efficient, professional, and motivated. I always felt as if I were her only client. During our search for a home, Holley was very thorough and knowledgeable. We were searching for a property in Bunker Hill with very specific criteria and she was very diligent in finding it for us. She was also quite resourceful throughout the rest of the home buying process. Later, when the time came to sell my previous home, I again relied upon Holley's services and she performed as expected. It is with great pleasure that I recommend Holley Madden as a realtor and agent for anyone planning to buy or sell a home.." - Sam D. Moore
★★★★★"With the utmost enthusiasm, I recommend Holley Madden to anyone selling their home. I have worked with Holley Madden on several real estate transactions over the last ten years. During each and every deal, Holley has impressed me with her dedication, drive and expertise.
Dedication: Ten years ago, Holley represented us on the purchase of a ranch house located in Spring Valley built in the 1950s. Her expertise in selection and deal negotiation led to a nearly 75% return on investment. Holley spent countless hours over the last ten years advising us on home improvements. For example, what type of fixtures and finishes to install or stay away from in order to maximize the value of the home and improve its marketability. The personal attention that Holley provided was invaluable. Her prompt communication and enthusiasm has been vital to each deal.
Drive: On our most recent relocation, Holley worked tirelessly to select and identify a house for our family's needs. She worked hard to understand the essential elements necessary for our home. After Holley identified a house that would meet our family's needs, we learned that multiple offers were expected. She expertly guided us through the bidding scenario that ensued and ultimately, based on her advice, successfully purchased the home. Throughout the countless hours Holley spent meeting with us and talking with us on the phone, I learned that she was working with another client on a separate transaction involving a multiple bid scenario. I was completely impressed with her drive and ability to handle each of these transactions. I have no doubt her other client felt the same satisfaction level with Holley's prompt and thorough attention.
Expertise: Holley is an expert in her craft. She excels in all dimensions of performance. If I was asked the one single thing that makes Holley stand out, I would say it is Holley's advocacy skills. Her ability to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses on a given deal term and optimize the deal is remarkable. She is constantly focused on understanding those drivers with each and every aspect of the deal. There were times during our deals where she absolutely did not agree with our position; regardless, she represented our interests and she would negotiate the desired outcome.
In short, because of Holley Madden's expertise, drive, and dedication, without reservation I recommend her to help anyone selling their home. She is an excellent representative for her profession. She is a tireless advocate. We tell anyone that we meet, we would never do a deal without Holley Madden." - John Mallo
