Client Testimonials:

“We worked with Billy Lane and his colleague Dirk Kinley at Climb Real Estate to buy our new home. They were exceptionally professional from start to finish, but more than that, were friendly, very helpful, super responsive, and listened to exactly what we wanted (and helped us find it!). As first-time homebuyers, we needed a little hand holding through the process, and they were there for us every step of the way. We were able to sign all of our paperwork up until closing electronically, which was important to us as we were living in a different city when we bought. The entire process went extremely smoothly, even when we had to expedite inspection and appraisal over the week of Thanksgiving! We are planning to recommend Billy and Dirk to any of our friends who are looking for a great team of agents to work with. Thank you Billy especially for being our guide through the process–we are thrilled with our new home!”
