Lisa and Kent has given us great service and help both before and during our move from Sweden to the US.
Always quick response if we have had any questions. They have kindly been taking us around and showed us more than just different houses, but also things that could be of our interest for our family and children at the locations we have been to.
The little extra (such as introducing us to the best icecream ever) is worth a lot and we really appriciated it.
Me and my husband can really recommend their service!
Kent and Lisa took great care of us when moving from Sweden to the US.
With us being completely new to both the country and the area, they were very generous with their time showing us around and giving us support in starting up services such gas, electricity, etc.
They also setup meetings at several schools and preschools so that we could explore different alternatives.
Not only did they show us houses, they also gave us a lot of information about fun things to do with family.
E-mails and phone calls were responded to within a few minutes and all communication was very smooth.
I really recommend working with Kent and Lisa and we will definetly use their sevices next time we move!
Kent and Lisabeth were awesome! We were relocated to Michigan from Ohio and had no idea what all needed to be done. They helped us through the whole process with minimal stress on us. I would recommend them to anyone coming to this area.
Thanks Kent and Lisabeth!!
Very professional with great knowledge of the home buying/selling process. Helpful suggestions on what to look for in choosing a home for our family and what issues to really keep in mind. We had a great experience buying a home with them!
Very knowledgeable and quick response time. Friendly and good with kids.Willing to go the extra mile. Explains every step of the process til you understand.
both kent and lisabeth were very helpful in finding a good house for us.They also found a condo to rent for sometime during our search for a house. Very nice couple and very caring.
Kent and Lisabeth have been helping me to build my family's life in Metro Detroit. They are the best real estate professionals - very knowledgeable, responsive and experts in the processes and the negotiations. But they are not the only factors making them the best. They are very considerate and sincere. They will make sure they understand the client's needs and provide the complete package of service. They've always been right and helped me to reach my life goal.
I strongly recommend Kent and Lisabeth. They become my family's best friend, and I will never forget their help.
Kent and Lisabeth were a joy to deal with. Extremely accommodating considering we were overseas for a large portion of the process. Nothing was too much trouble and their knowledge of the area is exceptional.
We will definitely use them during our next move.
We purchased a home in Salem Township with the superb guidance and professional assistance of Lisabeth. She was knowledgeable, prompt, enthusiastic and followed through on every detail. My wife and I would strongly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home...you will be pleased with her representation!
We were so lucky to cross paths with Lisabeth. She possesses the key ingredients to being an amazing realtor: she listened and understanded our needs and wants, she knew each area we looked at and gave us lots of information on each area, she answers her phone and answered every question we had, and most importantly she has a great personality and didnt pressure anything on us.
We must have looked at a dozen homes within a month and she didnt mind meeting us last minute to be the first buyers to view the property.
We got along great from day 1 and she made sure everything was lined up until the last minute and everything worked out in our favor. She investigated all issues we had immediately and didnt leave us waiting for more than a couple of hours for a true answer.
We will be using Lisabeth again if and when we decide to sell and buy in the future. She was amazing all around and could not imagine going through this process with anyone else.
Thank you Lisabeth!!
My girlfriend and I entered into our first home buying experience thinking we didn't need an agent, and as we soon discovered the process can be a nightmare without someone to help you along the way. We were lucky enough to run into Kent at a showing, and his professionalism immediately distinguished him. Kent and Lisabeth both were very receptive to our needs, took their time to show us houses we liked as well as offer up additional options based on their experience, and were exceptionally responsive to our questions. On top of all that, they work with a team of individuals in the other important aspects of the home buying process (mortgage lenders, inspectors, etc) that are all just as thorough and responsive. I highly recommend Kent and Lisabeth for either buying or selling property, they made buying our first home an enjoyable endeavor.
Lisabeth and Kent were great to work with. As is common, the process got a bit tricky and their expertise really helped to navigate the situation as smoothly as possible. They are clearly very knowledgable - we relied on their expertise in many situations, and it paid off. They were extremely responsive and overall really fantastic partners for us during the entire selling and buying process. I would highly recommend them!
My wife and I first met Lisabeth and Kent when we were relocating to MI from out of state. Originally we just were interested in searching for a rental and Lisabeth and Kent helped search high and low for us for an apartment. Fast forward 8months and we were so impressed with their persistence they were our first call when looking for a home. Through their efforts we found a beautiful home in our budget and the time constraints we had. Lisabeth and Kent are very knowledgable about the area and the market. I would highly recommend their services, they will not disappoint.
We were recommended to Kent Tyrrell and Lisabeth Riopelle by a realtor (Deb Fullford) that we used to purchase our northern Michigan home when it came time to sell downstate. She said that they were very professional and seemed driven towards their clients needs…. boy was she right!
Kent and Lisabeth provided us with detailed information of the process for selling our home, how to best stage it and a thorough examination of the current listings and past sales. They hired a professional photographer for pictures of our home, coordinated the showing process so we didn’t have to worry about it and any questions we had were quickly answered
We had multiple showings and after 2 days we had 5 offers at asking price or above! Now before you think we underpriced our home, consider that we sold it at the highest square foot price (by far) in a 2 1/2 mile area. They also handled issues that arose during the closing process in an expedited manner.
If you are looking for a realtor in the Western Wayne or Oakland counties and want a super driven team, I strongly suggest Kent Tyrrell and Lisabeth Riopelle.
Knowledgeable, experienced, patient, understanding, and commutative. Working with Kent was easy and takes the stress away. I was, with his help, able to find the house and close in a short time (about 20 days).
Lisabeth and Kent were extremely helpful in showing us the area and finding a rental that met our needs. We are looking forward to working with them on our home purchase in the near future.
We were first time home buyers. Kent and Lisa were extremely helpful ,professional and friendly. They were very knowledgeable , detail oriented and prompt in responding to our queries. Even our lender had the same opinion about them. Before making the offer on our house, they showed us the house multiple times. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for an agent.
Lisabeth and Kent are very kind to help us finally find a good house to us. As we moved to Novi just several month ago and were not familiar with local environment, with their guidance and patient introduction for the detail things inside each house we once visited in last four months, I would say it was lucky to us to have a professional expertise of realtor to buy a house. Besides that, they also introduced us several solid bankers to provide mortgage and inspectors with license to do the house inspection.
In a summary, we had a wonderful experience to buy the house with them.
I recently purchased a condo in the Plymouth area. Kent Tyrrell (Coldwell Banker) was my agent. I can not fully express my gratitude. I level of knowledge and expertise he and his organization possess is outstanding. I work in retail and often my work schedule varies. Many time there were forms that needed my signature, Kent would not hesitate to bring them by so they could be signed. This was very helpful to me. Kent was always willing to go the extra mile to get whatever needed to be done completed. I find the team of Kent Tyrrell and Lisabeth Riopelle, to be second to none. I will always recommend Kent and Lisabeth and their organization to both co-workers and friends. I am one very satisfied client.
We enjoyed working with Kent. He is a great professional with great knowledge of the Northville and Plymouth areas. He developed a strategy for selling our home. He always kept us informed and one step ahead of the home selling process. We would not hesitate at all to use Kent again as our real estate agent, if we come back to Michigan.
Lisabeth was great we would definitely recommend her and use her as our realtor again in the future! She was always very responsive and very proactive and got us into a great home!
My husband and I were new to the area and Lisabeth was beyond helpful with finding a great school district, fine shopping and convenience of my husband's commute. If we wanted to see a house she was always available, sometimes at a moments notice! And once we found our home she was there for the entire process, great at negotiating and always making sure we were informed for every next step in the process. I would highly recommend Lisabeth and Kent.
Knowledgeable in all areas of buying a home, went above and beyond in helping me schedule home inspection, and trying to resolve issues as a result of inspection. Always available to see a home, no matter time or day, accommodating with my schedule as well. Would let me know of houses on market before they hit the general public. Gave me contacts on movers storage facilities, contractors,, etc. I can't say enough great things about Kent and Elizabeth.
Great experience with Kent and Lisabeth. We were first time buyer and they help us through the process. They educated us on every aspect of buying a home in Michigan. They were very detailed and never hesitated to provide us information and finding fishy items that flag a home to be a money pit or wrong buy. They took our wish list very seriously and helped us find homes with these items and also opened our eyes to other opportunity/ possibilities. I would recommend them to anybody. Super satisfied with their service. They went far and beyond and have still been there even after the process. Thank you for everything.
It was a great pleasure to work with Lisabeth. She is the best agent I have ever met in every aspect. She is knowledgeable and always very helpful. Would highly recommend her to any people who is looking for a agent.
I worked with Lisabeth on our recent home purchase and couldn't have been happier!! I am not exactly the easiest guy to work with because of my work schedule and she was fantastic at setting up appointments within the hour, setting up evenings and weekends with little notice and even went as far as meeting with professionals after the home inspection when I was out of town!!! She made my experience much nicer than I could have dreamed and owe her a lot of gratitude for the house my family now calls home.
Do yourself a favor and call them to represent you!!!
Lisa and Kent are very professional and personable. They guided us through the process and paperwork without a glitch. We had two offers the first day and accepted another by the end of the first week. They were spot on as to the pricing and marketing of our property. This is the second time I have used them and would highly recommend them to anyone looking to sell or buy a property.
Kent Tyrrell was extremely helpful in helping me sell my house. It was a challenging situation,and we were interacting at a distance. Through networking and connecting me with the right people I was able to make a satisfactory sale.
Absolute top notch professionals.
Kent and Lisabeth were outstanding. We were buying a house and actually working with another real estate agent and happened to meet Kent when we visited an open house. The way Kent represented his client, I could immediately see that he was the bet real estate agent I had come across -- just very thorough in anticipating what my questions would be (and what I had not thought about, but should be thinking about). We switched to Kent and Lisabeth, and have continued to get the same level of service throughout.
The one item that specially stands out to me in terms of professionalism is that even after we had completed the transaction, and Kent and Lisabeth could have 'moved on', they have continued to offer us excellent service, going well above and beyond what I would have expected. have recommended them to multiple friends and would definitely vouch for their high standards.
