Satisfied clients speak for us:

We recently had the pleasure of working with Keith Thompson and his team at Berkshire Hathaway Home Services to assist us in our relocation from Minnesota to Charlotte.  Like many people, we Googled real estate agents trying to find a good one and stumbled on Keith - truly our lucky day!  The first thing that became very apparent is his professionalism and responsiveness.  He mailed a package immediately with information about Charlotte, home listings that might match the criteria I provided, as well as information about schools and neighborhoods - all of which was very helpful.  But, the thing that was most impressive was when he told me when we flew into town, he would clear his schedule and dedicate whatever time it took for us to find the right home.  Neither he, nor us, realized what that would mean but I am here to say, Keith Thompson is a man of his word!  We conducted a thorough search with multiple trips to Charlotte and located a home.  We went under contract and during inspection discovered some pretty major problems - which for us was a complete crisis - we had children that needed to start school and a closing on the MN side that could not be pushed off or delayed.  Keith, not only kept us calm, he negotiated brilliantly on our behalf but when it became clear we would unfortunately have to pull the plug, Keith immediately regrouped without missing a beat and started our search again.  He dedicated an incredible amount of time and energy and in record time helped us to secure another, better home in the same neighborhood with a quicker close time so we were only off our original schedule by a week.  All the way through the process Keith's calm professional demeanor, extensive knowledge of the Charlotte area and willingness to go the extra mile (or in our case, extra 20 miles!) helped to make our relocation to Charlotte a success. We most highly recommend Keith Thompson and his team whether you're planning a local move or relocating from another state - you will be hard pressed to find an agent that will work harder for you or achieve better results so no Google, just go to! – Janine & David Rudow

“We engaged Keith with Berkshire Hathaway based on references from past clients, to sell our condo.  He and his staff had it sold in a matter of weeks.  But where he went above and beyond our expectations was when he notified us two days before our scheduled closing.  That morning he received a call from the buyer’s agent informing him that the buyer lost her job and would be unable to get financing and had to back out of the deal.  Keith notified us around noon to let us know the bad news.  His attitude was very positive and assured us that he was immediately putting our condo back on the market.  By 7PM that evening he called and told us that he received a new offer that was substantially better than our original offer.  A month later we successfully closed.  Keith is a true skilled and knowledgeable professional who we would recommend.” – Howard & Molly Braverman

“In early 2016 my husband and I were faced with having to sale my aunt’s and uncle’s home out of their estate.  I looked to Keith Thompson to walk me through this process.  He immediately began to research the process and was able to walk us through it from beginning to end.  He and his assistant, Stephanie Cameron, did a great job keeping us informed of the property status and each step we needed to take.  They made this emotional time for us quite easy. Thanks!” -  Beth Plummer

“Working with Keith and his team at Berkshire Hathaway was a great experience.  We relocated from Chicago and had limited knowledge of the Charlotte area.  Keith was terrific to work with, always responsive, and extremely knowledgeable of the area.  Even though he was a great guide in our search from 700 miles away, the best thing was he actually listened to what we wanted and helped us find the home our family will love for years to come.  We will recommend Keith to anyone we know looking to buy or sell a home without hesitation!”- Erin & Matthew Schuster

“Keith Thompson and his team helped me buy and sell a house.  The amount of professionalism and support throughout both processes was amazing.  I truly believe I got the best deal possible on the purchase.  When I needed to sell, he helped me sell it for more than I thought I could get.  He really knows the market and is a very easy to work with.  I’ll be buying my next house with Keith and his team as well.” - Kyle Perkinson

“My husband and I highly recommend Keith Thompson.  We relocated to Charlotte from West Virginia and Keith provided outstanding service. He listened to what we both were hoping to find, was flexible in setting up numerous weekend appointments so we could travel to Charlotte, and provided clear, honest feedback regarding schools and neighborhoods.  Keith and his team were also fantastic at communicating and keeping us informed about the home inspection and appraisal, coordinating with our lender, and arranging for closing.  He helped make our move from West Virginia to the Charlotte area enjoyable and much less stressful!  We are thankful to have had the privilege of working with Keith Thompson.” - Katie & Ben Denning

Experts in their Realm

    At various junctures in life, smart, successful people must navigate the murky waters of purchasing or selling real estate.  They then employ an agent to assist in this endeavor.  But because they are smart and savvy in their own realm, professionals often times fail to heed the advice of the very person best suited to guide them to the right decisions in real estate:  His or her agent.  When it comes to real estate decisions, intellect is no substitute for experience, and Irving Schwebel and his team at Top Charlotte Agent, are experts in their realm, with years and years of valuable experience, and more than a little bit of smarts sprinkled in too.  Trust them, and you’ll make the right decision every time.

Tireless in efforts to show and sell your home

    I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Irv Schwebel and his team members, Keith Thompson and Joanna Millwood, for more than a year now and I cannot say enough good things about him.  Irv possesses all of the attributes you look for in a real estate professional.  He is an extremely detail oriented person.  He is exceptionally thorough and conducts himself with utmost professionalism.  I would go so far as to call him an expert on the real estate industry and the communities in which he works, is innovative in his marketing techniques and is tireless in his efforts to show and sell your home or assist you in finding the home of your dreams – as he did with my family.  I can say unequivocally that if it were not for Irv and his team we would never have obtained the results we did.At the end of the day, not only are Irv, Keith, and Joanna my real estate agents of choice, they are also my friends.

Flexible in meeting our needs

    I came to Charlotte as a results of a relocation to join a new company.  It was our 8th corporate relocation, so we have a rich history with the process and realtors.  I can honestly say that our experience with Irv was the best in our 20 years in moving.  He is very focused on the client and was exceptionally flexible in meeting our needs with young children.  We closed almost a year ago and we are very happy with our choice in the area.  Irv continues to follow-up with us ensure that we are transitioning well.I consider Irv a friend.

Outstanding Job as our Selling and Buying Agent

    Keith Thompson of Top Charlotte Agent did an outstanding job as our selling and buying agent. He patiently guided us through the challenging process of selling our home in a buyer’s market, and was with us every step of the way: listing, showing, and closing. When it came to buying a new home, fortunately for us, Keith knew every corner of Charlotte, and made sound recommendations to make sure that our prospective home was in a reputable school district for two sons. If we had to sell or buy a new home next week, month, or year, we’d gladly choose Keith as our agent.

Outstanding Partners in our Home Search

    Irv & his team were outstanding partners in our search for a home in the Charlotte suburbs.  We were completely unfamiliar with the area when we decided to move here. We relocated from many states away and we felt completely at ease with what could have otherwise been a very stressful relocation process.  Our needs and wants were well understood, their guidance and support were right on target and we couldn’t be more pleased with our new home and our new community. They truly are Charlotte’s top agents!

Great job understanding our needs and educating us on Charlotte!

    This was a big move for myself and my family as we were moving from a different state and all that we knew. Irv, Keith and Joanna made us all feel so welcome long before we came to Charlotte. Keith did a great job understanding our needs and educating us on the area, which helped us make our decision. During our first visit as a family to Charlotte Irv was ready to show us around and devoted the full week to us. Irv was a little surprised to learn that we wanted to select our new home that very week. After the first day, Irv shifted gears and delivered the perfect mix of homes for us to see. Our offer was accepted before the family left North Carolina at the end of the week. Joanna was so attentive to all of our needs, especially our children, who were always made to feel like they were an important part of this work. The entire team at Top Charlotte Agent were great and made us to feel at home from the moment we first talked through this very moment. The team continues to be a valuable source of information for us and I would recommend them to everyone.

Great job on Advertising!

    Eleanor and I were pleased that through the efforts of the Top Charlotte Agent team that we were able to sell our Charlotte home within a reasonable time frame for a price that was lower than we had hoped, but still not unexpected since we were in a real estate down period.  Your team did a great job on advertising, as evidenced by the number of showings that occurred during the sales period.  We appreciated the advice given that made the house more attractive to prospective buyers, and were on the verge of replacing carpeting at your suggestion when a buyer came along that indicated they would rather have a carpet allowance on the price.  Finally, your team did a good job in handling all the details of closing, which went very smoothly.  In summary, we would not hesitate to recommend the Top Charlotte Agent team to anyone seeking a real estate firm to handle the purchase or sale of a property.
