Danny and Karen exceeded every expectation. There is a reason why I have utilized their services now six times. Now with William on board they are a real estate dynasty in the Columbia market place. Thank you again for selling my house in a record six days. I hope this is my last move but, if not, you can bet I will be in touch! Best, Brett Snyder

We just wanted to write to tell you how much we appreciate everything you have done for us over the past few months in finding our dream home!

Sarah Lane & Travis Netherton

Travis and I have settled into our beautiful new home and we just wanted to say thank you for all that you did to help us find a home. Thank you for all your hard work and for your patience with us as we learned about the process! We couldn't be happier with our choice and we couldn't have done it without your help. Your knowledge and expertise guided us throughout the entire process. You made it easy for us! We are so excited to spend many years in this house. Thanks again, and we will call you when it's time to sell down the road! 

Brett & Jean Snyder

There are few people and businesses that are run like yours, where the customer really comes FIRST at every turn! After five or so real estate transactions I know first hand! As a result of our long standing relationship not only do I feel like a customer I feel like a friend!
It came as no surprise to read this morning The Hood Team is the very best our great state has to offer in the real estate space. The real estate transaction encompasses many aspects and can be very overwhelming in today's climate! What the public needs to know is that you are a consummate professional and there is not one part of this experience where you do not clearly demonstrate yourself as the subject matter expert!
I am truly grateful to you and The Hood Team and congratulations on another big year!!!!!!
Your friend,
Brett Snyder

Katie and William Howell

William DiMaggio was great. He was so thorough and always responsive to all our questions and needs no matter the day or time! He turned a previous bad house shopping experience, with another company, into an amazing experience that resulted in our dream home! The Hood Team is phenomenal!!!

Jerre, Anne, and Jon Freeman

Dear Danny,
This is a thank you for all that you and your team did to sell our house. Everything went very smoothly and we are grateful for your expertise and guidance. We see God's hand in this whole experience.
With Appreciation,

The Hood Team kept us informed on the sale of our property. They were very diligent working with us and the buyer. They went above and beyond in making sure all the details of the contract were met.

Michelle & Troy Burnett

Wow, what a team! We cannot thank you enough for selling our house in Columbia. As you know, the market in our area is flooded with inventory and yet you sold our house in just over three weeks. We have told lots of people about our experience with your team and they are amazed that you sold our home so quickly. After we relocated to Atlanta, we were so concerned about being able to buy a new home because we feared that our house in Columbia would languish on the market for months (which has been the case for several homes in our neighborhood). To top it off, I had an urgent need for a few items from our house in Columbia. My husband was willing to do the 7-hour round trip drive (with our six and eight-year old in tow). Instead, we asked Danny if he would be willing to pick the items up and deliver them to someone who could ship them to us. Within about an hour (yes, an hour), someone (William) on Danny’s team had been to our house and already dropped them off. Talk about customer service!

Seriously, your team is top notch and we will recommend you to anyone who is selling a home in the Columbia area. We’ll also tell the folks at Dave Ramsey that you definitely deserve to be one of their Endorsed Local Providers—no doubt about it.

David and Edith

Dear William,
We wanted to send you an overdue thank you for all of your work and help in getting our new home. Your patience with us while we looked (and with all of our internet finds) was so appreciated. You were confident that you'd be able to help us find the perfect home in our timeframe. And guess what?! You did!! But you didn't leave it at the find... You went above and beyond in helping us get to and through the closing. We are so grateful for all your help and efforts... Your professionalism, kindness, and upbeat attitude turned what could have been stressful into a positive and fun experience! Thank you seems so inadequate but we do thank you and will never hesitate to recommend you to anyone!

As an out of state client looking to relocate to South Carolina in thirty days had some difficult moments but William of "The Hood Team" did not give up. He promised to get me to the "closing table" and he worked seven days a week when needed to make me a homeowner. Out of state companies can require inspections not needed for South Carolina, "The Hood Team" wrote emails explaining why the inspections were unnecessary thus having the inspections waived and saving me hundreds of dollars. If you are looking to relocate, my advice is to use a mortgage company located in the state you are moving to. If not, contact "The Hood Team", they can and will get the job done and make your dream of homeownership come true. My experience with "The Hood Team" was awesome and unforgettable!
Thank you William for your determination, persistence, patience and teachings when I lacked knowledge.

Summer Jackson

Thank you Danny for working with me and making this process easy even being a thousand miles away!

David and Sheryl Ford

You combine your professionalism with such a pleasant, personal touch. We're glad to have had the priviledge of being one of your first clients and wish you much success. Thank you for attending to our needs with patience and concern and for assisting us through our arduous process. Your peaceful demeanor helped to make it an enjoyable experience. We're so fortunate we came to your open house. But things do happen for a reason don't they!! God Bless You...

Danny and Karen were our second Realtor. We had spent 6 months working with another Realtor who made absolutely no progress, and did not communicate with us on a very regular basis. During the 6 months our first Realtor had the property, we were only aware of 4-5 showings. When we called Danny & Karen, they gave us a punch list of things that needed to be fixed, and feedback on our expectations. While they were showing the house, we never had to call them to find out what was going on. Every week, sometimes more than once a week we were updated on the number of showings and the feedback, if any. We very quickly began to see 1-3 showings a week. Danny & Karen got multiple second showings and an offer on the house within 2 months of going on the market. They gave us good advice in the negotiation, and did not recommend we take the first thing to come along. I cannot speak highly enough of this Professional Team's help in selling our house and would highly recommend them!!

Leon & Beverly Heying (Venice, Florida)

Danny & Karen, We want to thank you for the expertise and dedication you both have shown during the process of selling our home. We were wintering in Florida when we contacted you about listing our house and you got the ball rolling without us being in SC. Your attention to details is what sets you apart from other Agencies. No one comes close. You kept us informed every step of the way. When other houses in our neighborhood have been on the market for 6-12 months, you found a buyer and completed the transaction in approximately 6 weeks. Your slogan "Customer Service is NOT a department, It's an attitude!" should include "When you need the best, call the best". You both went "above and beyond" expectations during the process. Karen's expertise in "staging" our home was an added bonus that was unexpected. We are forever grateful for your help!

George and I want to thank you so much for your time, patience, delicious lunch, and most of all for keeping us in mind for "The House"--which is perfect for us. It's a big step in our lives, but once we are settled in, we will thoroughly enjoy every aspect of the house. I can't wait to move in and make it our home and only hope everything moves quickly here. Many thanks again for everything!

Hi Danny and Karen, It has been a sincere pleasure working with two of the most professional and "attention to detail" people that we have met in the real estate industry. We have bought and sold several homes and you have made this purchase as stress free as humanly possible. You have represented our best interests at all times, and have gone above and beyond the norm to ensure that our needs were the number one priority. From house hunting to final closing, both of you assisted in making the process as smooth and obstacle free as possible. Thanks again for your superb efforts.

George F. Dendrinos (Summerville, SC)

To Whom It May Concern: I am writing this personal reference to prospective Danny Hood clients, either buying or selling their home. I have moved numerous times and bought and sold more homes than I care to remember. I have used various real estate companies and Realtors, but NO ONE has taken better care of my situation than Danny Hood. In selling our house, Danny addressed our needs and our home's potential value through his complete and timely market analysis and an effective and encompassing marketing plan. We have never sold a home as quickly or as stress free! As a professional sales manager, I know what it takes to be a great sales and marketing person and Danny IS that Top Producing Professional. I have no reservation recommending Danny Hood to be your Realtor!

"Danny, we wanted to extend our thanks and gratitude for all of the hard (&sometimes painful) work you've done for us. We'd also like to thank Karen for filling in during our initial walk through. You were successful in making an extremely stressful situation easy for the both of us. Thanks again for helping us in the purchase of our 1st home!"

"Just a note to let you know how much we appreciate the professional manner in which you handled the sale of our home. We always felt we were TOP PRIORITY. Having been in sales for the past 25 years, I must say I was very impressed. Your strategies, timing, and prudence are reasons why we will not hesitate to recommend Danny Hood. Thanks for everything!"

Dan and Pat Jones

"I have purchased three homes and sold two of them in the last nine years. Each transaction was handled by Danny Hood. He effectively marketed our homes utilizing newspaper, open houses and tours. When we were in the market for a new location, Danny spent the necessary hours showing us available homes and when we decided, Danny arranged the financing, was present at the closing and made sure our move was completed without any major problems. I strongly recommend that you utilize Danny!! Write me and I'll give you more details."

"Having sold 3 homes during the past 6 years due to work-related moves, we have garnered some insight into the varying levels of service and expertise provided by different real estate agents. We would like to inform you that the services provided to us by Danny and Karen Hood was at the very highest level of competence and professionalism. They went to extraordinary lengths and greatly facilitated a speedy and smooth closing. In gratitude I have made known to my colleagues at the National Weather Service the tremendous service we received and have prominently posted Danny's business card on the bulletin board. We are thankful to Danny and Karen Hood for all of their help and also wish to thank Coldwell Banker/Tom Jenkins Realty for making them available to us!"

Fran Weimortz

"Thanks to Danny and Karen Hood my dream has come true; to purchase a home MYSELF! Through their guidance, advice, and patience we were able to find the perfect place. Danny did not just 'walk me through home after home,' he took the time to pick out the right home for me. I was most impressed with the interest he showed helping me 'fix up' the house I was presently living in. After all was said and done, I not only sold a house, bought another, but developed two new friendships with Danny and Karen. Yes, when I'm ready to sell again, I will have one less decision to make. I know Danny Hood will be my agent!"

Doris Derrick and Bonnie Derrick

We want to thank you again for the professional and successful "purchase" and "sale" you have achieved for us. Four years ago you helped us find our wonderful home. Because you were so thorough, we were spared all of the stress and involvement to close the sale. For the past several months you have been diligently working on a large real estate sale for us. You have kept us posted on the many obstacles that had to be overcome, i.e.: rezoning, buyer loans, etc. We are excited to close next week and know that the sale would never have happened without your tact, finesse, and aggressiveness. You are truly one of the most professional, honest and hard working people we have had the pleasure of doing business with. We highly recommend you to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate.

Ren & Mary Lou Wu

Just a note of thanks for your superlative services as our Coldwell Banker Realtor. Though we literally only had 2-3 days in which to find a home, you were able to compile our needs and filter out a set of houses for us to choose from. We were so pleased with what you came up with that it was tough to make a final decision. Especially helpful was your willingness to take the time to show us the local elementary schools, as that was a large factor in our decision as to where to buy. I'm sure your attention to detail and your responsiveness to customers will continue to keep you at the top in your field.

John Gasque , Columbia, SC

I wanted to congratulate and thank you for a job well done. In the span of a little over a month you sold both my and my mom's house and had us moved into a new home! I'll never forget that day when you put the sign on my house in the morning, and by the afternoon, it had sold! Three weeks later, my mom's house sold and she closed before I did, WOW! In a span of five days, my mom's house closed, mine closed, and we moved into the new house. I do appreciate your dedication on all fronts. Two homes sold, one home bought in just over 30 days. If I had written the script myself, it could not have turned out any better.

Ed Thomas, Irmo, SC

I've always believed people didn't care how much you know until & after they
know how much you cared! You were all Pro when you sold our home. We'd
recommend you to anyone. Just know you would be our first choice if & when

we would ever sell again! Hope you have the best year ever.

Pam Terzian

I wanted to THANK YOU for all of your help in selling our home on Lake Murray in Irmo. You knew we worked with another Realtor and agency before we came to you. We were very unhappy with their service and capabilities so we came to you under less than perfect conditions. From the beginning:
* You provided good factual information and expert advice at every decision point
* You worked effectively with our corporate relocation company-even though it was a trying experience at times
* We were in our new state during the entire sales period-and you kept us as informed via email/phone-as if I was still in Columbia
* You were extremely organized and nothing ever "fell through the cracks"-everything was done as promised and on time
Your marketing and personal persistence resulted in us getting an offer on our house within 60 days of signing with you. And, the incredible part is that you did this during all the turmoil about the Dam construction, Lake Levels and whether people should purchase a Lake home now!!

You helped us through a tough relocation period and we appreciated it. I can highly recommend you to others who need a competent and organized real estate specialist.
