Jodie and Rick of Team Dames were absolutely wonderful in helping me find and purchase my new home! They are very knowledgeable, professional, friendly and reliable. It had been a long time since I had purchased a home and they were there to guide me every step of the way answering any question promptly. Jodie was available to make sure I was able to see any listing at my convenience. Rick's negotiating skills are second to none. The whole process was easy and stress free.
Team Dames (Jodie and Rick) were passionate about getting to know me and my home. Jodie saw the love I put into it and translated that in enthusiastically staging and showing my SunCity/Summerlin home. Rick knows the market so well and is a master negotiator helping me to get the best deal possible in this crowded market. Most importantly, they anticipated and handled soooo many of the details that make selling a home a complicated process. I was in good hands from start to finish. Thank you, Team Dames!
Jodie was not only an exceptional person but a Realtor I would use if I was to buy another home. Jodie listened to what we were looking for in a home and went out of her way to find us the perfect home. I recommend for anyone who’s looking to purchase a home, condo or apartment to contact her. We were very happy with Jodie and Rick, Team Dames.
She is the best. She shows you exactly what you are searching for. She doesn't try to sell you something you don't want, just to get a sale. She goes above and beyond to serve her prospective buyers. I relocated from the East Coast to the West Coast and came out in July 2017 to see some homes with Jodie. I had spoke to her over the phone and told her exactly what I wanted to see and didn't want to see. I told her my budget and she complied with all my requests. She even cared for my new home while I was moving to the East Coast. This is not my first time purchasing a home, so when I tell you she is the "BESTEST" , she is!!!!Less
I've moved many times in my life and have had many real estate agents. Never have I had an experience like the one I had with Team Dames. They are not like your typical pushy real estate agents. They are warm, hard-working, and always had MY best interests at heart even if it meant more work for them. The level of customer service that I received from Jodie and Rick was second to none. They were always available when I needed them and never once made me feel like a burden, no matter how many questions I had for them...and I had a lot. Team Dames went out of their way to make sure that my buying and selling experience went smoothly and was without stress. Team Dames not only provided a an unheard of level of customer service, but they also were able to learn all the advantages of my home and strategically developed an aggressive marketing strategy to sell my home for the highest price seen in this sub-division. Not only that, but once the house went under contract, they made sure to leave notes around the house for the appraiser to justify that high price. I can't say enough good words about my experience with Rick and Jodie.
I honestly can't say enough good things about "Team Dames" Jodie and Rick are masters at what they do! I began my journey at the end of December 2016, I explained in detail to Jodie what I was looking for in a home, I wanted something similar to the property I was leasing, Jodie and Rick recommend Mann Mortgage to get me started and everything was very smooth on that end. The best thing about Team Dames is they don't send you properties that are way above your price range, they check on all the little details to ensure that the property you "may fall in love with" is attainable to you. I was extremely lucky in my home search as my Landlord decided to sell me the home I had been leasing, as soon as I told Jodie it was full steam ahead, her and Rick talked me through everything, being a first time buyer, to say I was clueless would be an understatement! The whole process was a smooth and seamless one, it took four weeks from beginning to signing, I am so grateful that I began my search on Zillow and found this wonderful team and whats more caring and genuine individuals. Thank you Team Dames!!
Jodie was an outstanding agent. The home I bought was a bid situation. Rick and Jodie strategically fashioned a bid that was not the highest price offered but still got me the home. Yea Team Dames! They went out of her way and took to the time to figure out what I needed and wanted. I got a great deal on my house and look forward to working with her on selling my old one.
Awesome experience! This was my first time selling a home and Jodie made it easy. She was with me every step of the way and expertly handled the process. I not only received offers immediately after listing, i was able to get my asking price and closed within weeks! Jodie is a true professional and i was lucky to find her using Zillow!
Rick and Jodie Dames learned all the reasons that our home was unique. They developed a marketing plan - professional pictures, brochures, strategic signage, open house, email blasts, word of mouth to Realtors, etc and bottom line, had competing offers in a week, picked the one that was sure to close, and SOLD OUR HOME FOR THE HIGHEST PRICE EVER in our sub-division. Rick and Jodie guided us through the process and a smooth closing. Thank you Team Dames!!
I refer to this team as the "Dynamic Duo". Talk about great customer service when selling my home. I sent an e-mail through Zillow website regarding selling and purchasing a home. Jodi called me back within less than an hour. She was very polite and welcoming. I let her know that I wanted to list my home for sale, she immediately set up an appointment to view my home. She is very punctual and even brought Rick so that I could meet the rest of the team. The told me the process of selling my home in great detail and made sure a novice like myself understood everything. We, mostly she, made appointments for inspections, pics etc. Pictures were posted within 3 days of being taken-which was a Saturday night, not many people sacrifice their nights and weekends and they did both. I received a call the next day from Jodie letting me know there was going to be a showing. She called me the next day and let me know we should be getting an off and we did. Within 3 days my home went from "for sale" to "pending an offer" to sold". This and many other reasons helped me name this team the "Dynamic Duo"!!!! I received grade A customer service when I purchased my new home with them as well. HIRE WITHOUT A SECOND THOUGHT!!!! Less
Jodie is incredible. She truly listened to what I wanted and found the perfect condo for me. She is very knowledgeable about real estate and was extremely helpful in all phases of my purchasing experience. Even though my closing was a unique situation with me being in another country, Jodie came up with solutions to all problems associated with a remote closing venture. I've already recommended her to 6 of my friends, all of whom now want a condo in Vegas
I've had the greatest experience with Jodie Dames, on my Home purchase I was extremely recommended to her, she and her husband, Rick, worked diligent with me and closely , since the very beginning of the process she explained everything to me steps by steps since I am a first time buyer, always returned my texts emails and calls immediately, she made sure I was not overcharged in anything. She found me a home based on all my needs that she knew about. I am grateful and blessed to have in my life the Dames team. I am super Happy. :) :)
Fantastic service from both Rick and Jodie. They guided us through every step of purchase and sale with valuable information and a willingness to listen to our needs that was unbelievable. I can not say enough to express how totally satisfied we are
Rick and Jody are an amazing team! They listen and care about your needs for a new home. You are cared and catered for as in a remarkable and personal manner. They have a vast professional knowledge and many years of experience in Las Vegas to keep you informed about your choices and preferences. If you are looking for a home with either a large budget or small, they will keep a focus on your needs not theirs. To that end, they ensure you are not getting a “bad deal” on a home, they work hard for you to ensure you are well informed and not left feeling like a just another customer...they treat you as if you were family!! I do not give my endorsements lightly, they are a great team!
We went through several realtors and let them go. We found Jodie Dames and Rick Dames, they saved us, they are the up most respectful, kind, professional realtors we have ever met. They listen to you and what you want, they are there for you when ever you want to go house hunting, no questions asked. Very calm passionate realtors. You will not find another like these two people. If you are in need of a home, don't do what we did, going through rude, un professional realtors in Las Vegas, and believe me, there are some bad ones out there. Call Jodie Dames & Rick Dames. You will not be sorry , it was so fun with them, everything with them was perfect. They will get you the home that you want. Sherry & Freddie Eggler
Me and my wife contacted Jodie Dames on the internet, as we are from California and had very little knowledge of Las Vegas real estate market.We found Rick and Jodie as very efficient ,organised ,sometimes sending us properties to view even late night along with very good description.I felt from bottom of my heart to write this review,the first thing I did, the moment I came back to California.If you r looking for an honest,nonpressuring and good hearted agent,donot search any more,call Rick and or Jodie or team dames
We came in contact with Jodie Dames while searching for homes to purchase on Zillow.com. We later met her husband Rick Dames. There is nothing average about the work ethics of Team Dames, as they went above and beyond in every aspect of our home buying experience. They provided us with superior customer service. We talked to a few realtors, but none seemed to capture our dream home wish list, along with having a personal, and hands on approach in the way Rick and Jodie displayed. They made an indelible impression on us, with their professionalism, but still had a way of making us feel we were one of their own family members. Rick and Jodie found us our dream home. They researched home comparables to aid us in making a feasible offer on a house that fit our budget. While we were finalizing our financing, they negotiated and got approved contract extensions that initially seemed impossible. A realtor finding you a great home is only part of the equation, but having a winning personality, and expertise negotiating skills, is key in dealing with the listing realtor, banks, short sale attorneys etc. We have made Rick and Jodie Dames our exclusive realtors. I would highly recommend Rick and Jodie to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. We look forward to working with them in the future, as we advance to our next home, and grow our investment property business. Thanks, Ron and Stacy Carter
Jodie and her husband Rick did a great job for me in buying my new home in Las Vegas . It was a very easy process and their knowledge of the area I was looking to buy in really helped me filter through a lot of homes I was interested in . In the end everything worked out very well , great home at a fair price . I highly recommend both of them if your looking to buy in the Las Vegas area . Its was nice to be able to get a hold of them when I had questions during the whole process ....Less
I recently contacted Jodie Dames about helping my husband and I look for a house as I had been through 2 realtors, one would not get me information I needed had to keep asking and asking for things, the other, too pushy and totally refused to show me homes that were over $150,000. BECAUSE we stated that we did not want to live for a house payment, so I got rid of him quickly. Jodie responded quickly and her husband Rick. They have been the best realtors I have ever seen in Las Vegas, they are caring, they respond at any time on anything, they listen to you when you have a story or not, they will suggest to you but not demand, they are respectful of how you feel and what you want and when you need it. They are very thorough in all they do as realtors and can be your friend too. Business first they are. You cannot find a better realtor. Just as pleasant as the sun shines in the day. They are a god sent to us and we are so grateful and thankful we have them and yes, they helped us find our home and we are now in the process of everything. Call them, just a wonderful couple and they make things fun for you while you are looking for your home. Good Luck everyone!!
We contacted the Dames team from a FOR SALE sign on the street in March. They never pushed us before we were ready to start looking for our new home in NW Las Vegas. They know the area well and very professional with lots of patience. We bought over ten homes in the past and they are the best realtors we ever met. They stood on our side every single time to deal with other agents and sellers to get what we asked for. We finally got our home in July and enjoyed their friendship all these months. We would certainly recommend their support for your house hunting process. David and Esther.
Jodie and Rick learned what I was looking for and worked with me to make an offer on a Fannie Mae repossession. We got into a bid war and lost the Property. Without skipping a beat, we went out the next day and found my new home. Team Dames analyzed the market trends, comparable sales, and strengths and weaknesses'. We strategically fashioned an offer that was aggressive, but gave me safeguards to not overpay if things didn't work out. Bottom line, we got the house at the right price. They responded to phone calls, emails, and texts 24/7. Rick and Jodie guided me all the way through typical closing obstacles and today I'm moving into my new home! Thank you!
I relocated to Las Vegas after living over 30 years in the SF Bay area. Jodie Dames helped make that home shopping process considerably easier than I anticipated. I was impressed with her knowledge of the area and professionalism throughout the entire process. Her warm personality and genuine interest in my preferences created a very positive experience. Thank you, Jodie!
Jodie and Rick showed and gave professionalism in every sense of the word. They always explained the process of finding a renter and what they were doing to insure the renters were excellent, in their credit worthiness, and honesty. Jodie and Rick always were ready to answer questions and were available as needed. They reflect great credit upon them selves and the industry they represent. It was truly a pleasure having the Team as my realtors.
We were given 30 days notice by our landlord to vacate the house we were renting because they were going to put the house on the market. The first week we were in a stressful panic state and were not getting much help. With three weeks left we clicked for information on a house we really liked and Jodi returned the call right away, and this was late at night. We met with her at the house the next morning. Her concern for our situation made us feel at ease. Jodi and her husband Rick took care of us from that point on and made getting moved over into this new house so much easier then it would have been without their help. They really worked hard to make it possible, there were problems getting it worked out for us and at one point didn’t look like it would happen. They made it happen! We never experienced this kind of care and help from anyone with our search for house rentals in the past. The peace of mind we had trusting them to look out for us is priceless. Hopefully next year we will be ready to purchase a home and Team Dames (Jodi and Rick) are who we want to be with us. If your need a good realtor team on your side, I wholeheartedly suggest calling Jodi.
I was relocating to Las Vegas to go to grad school and had a place to live all wrapped up. The deal fell out on a Friday and I only had two days in town to find a home. Jodie and Rick worked all week-end. They called, texted and emailed other Realtors on Saturday and Sunday. They had me running until finally on Sunday night we found a place and Jodie and Rick negotiated details for me. They went above and beyond! Thank you Team Dames.
When my wife and I were relocating to Las Vegas we called friends, who recommended two neighborhoods. They also recommended Team Dames. Rick and Jodie took the time to learn exactly what we were looking for, which saved us a bunch of time shopping for our new home. First, they gave us a good overview of the advantages of each neighborhood to help us make an informed decision. Then, every property they showed us was amazingly close to what we asked for. They were easy to work with. They worked very hard to help us find the perfect home for us. I recommend them highly. John McKay
