Greg was very polite and respectful, we never felt pressured or rushed. Greg made our buying experience smooth and stress free.
Greg Oestreich is incredibly patient and easy to work with but what really stands out is his sense of integrity. He conveyed that he only ever likes to represent one party in a transaction and if he has a buyer that he is the listing agent for, he will pass them off to another agent. I have heard of many other agents who will represent both in order to get a larger commission. This tells me the kind of person Greg is and I was constantly reminded of it during our interactions with him.
Mr. Oestreich was attentive to my requirements and did a good job of showing me houses that met my criteria. Once I was ready to make an offer, he was very helpful guiding me through the many steps required, even helping to fill out the forms necessary to arrange for a health department inspection of the septic system. He was also extremely prompt responding to my communications and answering my questions. Buying a house is a lot of work but Mr. Oestreich's assistance made it easier.
Greg did a great job, was extremely timely in responding to questions and made the process easy.
Working with Greg Oestreich was a very positive experience even though the house was slow to sell. He did a wonderful job of explaining the details of the sale process, the meaning of the real estate lingo, and offering numerous alternatives where decisions had to be made. He also made sure that communicating information about the sale was timely and appropriate for the circumstances. I don't know what I would have done without him. His professional rigor and attention to detail far exceeds what I have experienced with other agents.
Enjoyed working with Greg. Appreciated his easy going and entirely professional style of communication. Would recommend him highly.
Greg know the community, area, customs related to real estate sales, can easily recommend his services...
A great gentleman to work with. He got us through the process since this was a first time sale. Thank you sir.
Our experience with Greg Oestreich throughout the sale process was very satisfactory. He is very professional, low pressure, open to suggestions and always prompt to response emails, phone calls at any time. We will definitely use Greg's services in the future.
From our initial meeting, Greg Oestreich was professional, respectful, and of greatest importance, he truly listened to us. He provided us with critical information and allowed us time to make a decision without being pressured. Greg went above and beyond in assisting us in selling our property in a difficult selling market. He made suggestions and was extremely open and willing to implement suggestions we made. It was a partnership from Day 1 with EXCELLENT two-way communication. Our home needed a particular type of prospective buyer. Its size and location were such that it would not meet the needs of every buyer. Greg was steadfast in finding that perfect fit. We recommend Greg Oestreich, without reservation, Greg has the knowledge, experience, skills and temperament to assist and support prospective buyers or sellers throughout this difficult and complex process.
Greg's professionalism is unmatched. I appreciate his high level of communication, his promptness, his thoroughness, and his professional demeanor!
Greg had a wealth of knowledge and experience that made my first home buying experience a dream. We found a great house and his professional advice helped ensure we not only got the home, but had a smooth experience through all the steps. 5/5, I highly recommend you use Greg for your next home purchase or sale!
Greg is great to work with. He communicates timely and effectively. He is dedicated and committed to meeting home buyer / seller needs. I have purchased and sold two homes with Greg and would strongly recommend Greg to anyone/everyone buying or selling.
Greg was great to work with. I always felt that I could move at my own speed. He never pressured or tried to shape opinions. He always responded very quickly when I would contact him, and he would show me a place anytime I asked. Thanks Greg
Gregory Oestreich is extremely knowledgeable, easy going, and very punctual person. I had no previous knowledge about real estate market. I have learn a lot from Greg. His guidance during the showing and offering periods was awesome. I was actually looking for a scale that is "more than excellent" to characterize Greg, unfortunately there is nothing like that. I am not joking, he deserve more than excellent in every aspects. It was an extremely nice experience to working with Greg. I had full faith on Greg from our one day meeting. He helped me a lot with information which eventually makes everything very easy. I will definitely recommend Greg without any hesitation.
My husband and I live 9 hours from the area and needed to find a place close to college for our 2 daughters to live. After doing an online search of homes we were interested in we contacted a broker that was listed as the realtor for one of the properties. We asked him to set up showings for our daughters to take an introductory look at the properties and narrow the list before we made the trip to see them. The realtor made the appointments and then cancelled the day before. We found him to be difficult to get in touch with and not available when we needed him. I researched some more on the internet and found Greg Oestreich's information and sales record. I called him and explained my situation and the problems I was having with the other realtor and he was very helpful and very willing to take on our search. He immediately contacted our children and set up showings around their work and school schedules. He treated them like adults and prospective homeowners. He went out of his way to set up weekend showings on the spur of the moment for my husband and I when we could make the trip. He responded to every email and phone call promptly. We found Greg to very knowledgeable and easy to work with. Greg was always available when we needed him at all hours. He met all of our expectations. We are very happy with our home purchase and are grateful to Greg for all of his hard work.
Greg did a great job in helping us through the home buying process. Greg understood our needs and was able to answer all of the questions we had and provided additional information to us as well. Greg knew the Ripley area extremely well and understood our needs as they pertained to our purchase. He was efficient and timely with getting back to us and was easy to work with. Prior to purchasing this home we were skeptical about the process but Greg helped us to understand by answering all of our questions and meeting us regularly. He was professional and has the expertise that I would recommend to others who are considering selling or buying a home.
Greg provided us with the important information we needed to make a decision in buying our house. Greg was able to problem solve through the issue we had with the loan by making two separate transactions which in turn satisfied the lending requirements. Greg kept in constant communication with us and we were able to meet him on our schedule which helped out tremendously! Greg was willing to meet us after hours and on the weekends.
Greg did an excellent job in selling our home. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and easy to work with during all phases of the sale. I would highly recommend Greg to anyone interested in selling their home. He and the entire Century 21 staff are true professionals.
Greg was honest, reliable, and trustworthy and has his clients interest at heart. He responded to all emails and telephone calls within 15-20 minutes. Greg was very professional and was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Greg as a real estate agent.
Greg - thank you for all your good work on the sale of our home (in record time, perhaps!). Your advice was always spot-on, your knowledge of the market extremely helpful, & your patient manner a pleasure to work with. Very grateful.
Greg was 100% professional, and very easy to deal with. His replies and responses were very quick, and he was extremely helpful. His local insight and experience was very helpful pricing my home, that didn't have a lot of direct comparables. I would definitely recommend Greg to a friend.
Greg Oestreich is great to work with. He knows the area, the process, and most of all what it takes to help you find the home you're looking for. Greg is an honest and straight forward guy, and never tries to up-sell. He spent a ton of time planning and showing us homes, offered advise when asked, and dug in for more details when we needed them. He accommodated our schedules and was very flexible when we would spring surprises on him. Even if you don't end up buying a house through him, Greg is just a nice guy to know. Thanks for helping us find our home!
Greg met us at the property and then we all went down a rugged trail and stayed with us the whole time we wanted to walk the property. Greg was very helpful throughout the whole transaction and purchase of the property. Thanks for doing a great job Greg!
Mr. Oestreich was very professional and excellent in communication.
Greg was great. He went extra miles taking care of things such as furnace repairs requested by the buyer while I was in China. He is very knowledgeable, professional, understanding, accessible, and responsive to customer needs. Would highly recommend him to family and friends.
Greg is very personable and helped us be comfortable and confident thru a very confusing and sometimes uneasy process.
Greg Oestreich patiently guided us through the process of selling our home. He was always in communication with us and made us feel like we had his full attention. I would recommend Greg as an agent who knows the market and the area well.
Greg Oestreich came highly recommended from friends who had worked with him previously. Greg had a great knowledge of the local area, found houses that fit my budget and family needs, and was very extremely pleasant to work with. I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy their home in the Copper Country!
Greg Oestreich has been a local businessman for many years, one who's integrity is well known and respected. When he undertakes a project he researches it thoroughly and builds that research into a plan of action that he follows carefully. He is a great communicator and, combined with his knowledge, he is able to explain some of the more esoteric aspects of real estate complexity in an easily understood way. We have such confidence in Greg's abilities that we have also entrusted him with the sale of my mother's home. He is a great realtor. Greg's knowledge of the local market and customer base resulted in a quick match with a buyer that he had been working with trying to find a home like ours. After expediting the home inspection we had a purchase agreement with the first couple he showed the house to. We are very comfortable with the North Country agency's expertise and resources.
Greg went above and beyond what was expected of him for us. His availability and communication was impecable.
We greatly enjoyed working with Gregory Oestreich! He was most cooperative, very thorough and always considerate of our requests. We would work with Gregory again and would recommend him to anyone else!
I feel that Greg would be the reason we would go with CENTURY 21 again. He was respectful of us and while very professional he was personable as well.
Mr. Oestreich was extremely professional from the first time we met him. He represented us fairly and explained all parts of the process. He traveled several times to our location during a short amount of time in order to facilitate the process of placing a contract. As well, since the remainder of our transaction activity was completed from a distance, he worked to make that process very smooth. We are very happy with his work.
Greg's professionalism in dealing with all of the situations that arose during negotiations helped maintain our confidence in our decisions and ultimately helped sell the house in a market that was not to our advantage. We would ask Greg to be our REALTOR® again if the need to buy or sell a house in this area arises.
Greg is very professional, patient, and does just the right amount of follow-up (not pushy; provides information just when you need it, such as utility phone numbers, etc.; and understands constraints that clients may have). The agency is equally as professional.
Greg went above and beyond to help me sell my house. He was available at all hours and patiently answered all of my questions. I had to move out of state before the property was even listed, and Greg took care of everything locally for me, including finding a local company to make some last minute fixes requested by the buyer.
You'll be surprised to hear from us after all this time but never having let you know how appreciative we still are for the way you handled all the very complicated and difficult problems that arose in selling our house. You are such a very honorable, decent and trustworthy fellow and certainly went out of your way for us.
Thank you for your help to us in buying our first home. We are happy with your service. We will refer you to other people we know.
We have worked with Greg several times. His patience and sincerity Is obvious. He is meticulous in his work and we appreciated his thoroughness.
Greg was always up front with us and exhibits the highest integrity.
Greg was indefatigable, having to make many trips out to the property to see that it was properly signed. His integrity and honesty gave us great confidence.
Greg helped us every step of the way. Our building was sold quickly in what is described as a depressed market. I've worked with Greg before, was impressed then, and he did all the right things again.
Greg made all the difference in this transaction. This was my first real estate purchase and I could not have gotten through the various stages without Greg's help and support. On the day we closed, I was happy and felt stress-free, and I believe that is because of how Greg stayed in touch with me and talked me through the entire process. I feel lucky to have had him as my agent and I have already recommended him to others. His patience, professionalism, and knowledge reflects the kind of exceptional quality people can only hope for in their business relationships these days.
Greg assisted us in the purchase of our new home in Houghton and I can’t emphasize enough what an exceptional individual he is. He is a true professional in every aspect of the word. Greg worked so well with my wife and me; we would never consider ever using anyone else. His pains-taking attention to detail and ability to keep us informed throughout the process made this home purchase ‘easy’. Thanks Greg, you are truly a credit to your profession and will be highly recommended in the future.
Greg showed me numerous listings before we found the right one in my price range. He went out of his way to make a complicated and stressful process easier. I knew at all times he had my best interest in mind and was very trustworthy. I have no hesitation in recommending him or the agency he represents, to my friends. Thank you Greg, for your patience and diligence over the past months.
Thank you for your expert handling of the sale of my childhood home. I can't think of any way you could have done it any better. ... I felt that you empowered me to play a productive role in a successful endeavor. Thank you again for your skill and your cooperation. You are the best!
Thanks for being part of one of 2008's biggest successes. The house is great and you were amazing to work with!
He always got back to us on the same day or the next with information on the showings from our house to prospective buyers. Thank you!
Greg did an excellent job preparing us to sell our home; what to paint, what to change, what to clean up. Once our home was listed and being shown, we were always able to contact Greg with questions and he responded ASAP. The key to Greg’s success as a REALTOR® is that he stays in close contact with ‘his sellers’ and ‘his buyers’. Everyone appreciates knowing what’s going on and Greg lets you know.
Our son attends Michigan Tech University and we decided to purchase a house in the area. Our deal was nothing huge, but we ran into a few snags and time was becoming an issue. Greg Oestreich was terrific. As we worked from afar, Greg was our legs in Houghton and went above and beyond what even I had expected. He worked with everyone involved to make sure our closing went smoothly and right on time. I found Greg to be honest, determined, and a man of his word. He did an excellent job representing us and I would highly recommend him for your next real estate transaction. Randy Hansen, Grand Haven, MI
CENTURY 21 North Country Agency recently sold a house for us. They were professional in all aspects. We were kept informed of all showings with comments from the potential buyers. The house was sold in a few months in a smooth transaction. Thank you CENTURY 21 North Country Agency.
Greg was a joy to work with! He really takes care of his customers and is very thorough and dependable. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a home or property.
We felt safe buying a home from Greg. Greg tried to keep us from panicking when circumstances were beyond our control by keeping us well informed of the process and focused on what we needed to accomplish. When we say that Greg went the extra mile for us, we mean it figuratively and literally. Throughout the entire process Greg was meticulous –he made sure we understood all the “in”s and “out”s of the purchasing process. He made sure that we were making informed decisions without pushing us into a hasty choice. Greg also walked through waist deep snow to show us any home that might work for us.
Greg is a great joy to work with. We appreciate his promptness, time in researching, and his non-pushiness when it comes to REALTORS®. Also his wonderful, soft sense of humor!
Our agent was extremely helpful when we were looking for a home, and really took our family and our needs into consideration when working with us. The website also made it really easy to find the properties in our area that we wanted to see.
