My sister and I had a unique property to sell. We also had unique circumstances and in today's world, there are seldom any cookie cutter sales. I would like to state that who you speak with on the phone or in person is the same person regardless of circumstances, and we all know "circumstances" will arise in today's economy. Rick and his team and their background and knowledge of the area gave us the tools we needed to make critical decisions. The team was always available by phone or email. No question went unanswered. When it came time to make decisions about offers made, Rick and his team were very professional in how they responded. When asked for, data was provided that gave depth and clarity to make wise decisions on our part. Our property, being unique, was on the market for a while, but when the right buyer came along, Rick and his team were right there with us to guide us through the process. As sellers living out-of-state, we were pleased to have someone representing us that we could trust. If I could think of three words to describe Rick and his team, it would be trust, professionalism and peace of mind. Melinda Hughes - Acreage Sold!
Century 21 Black Bear Realty and Rick Andrews have done an outstanding job marketing our property. The staff is friendly, competent, and offer frequent feed-back on the housing market and on our listing. Best real estate team we've ever worked with! Richard & Charlotte Sims - Current Client!
Dear Rick... You are very fortunate to have excellent staff. I have nothing but gratitude for your staff and you... God Bless. Dr. K D Kapoor – Vacant Lot Sold!
My previous realtor did not provide any feedback other than at the beginning of the contract and again when the contract had expired. It's so refreshing to have an agent that is working hard to sell my property and keeps me informed about what's going on with the real estate market. Stephanie Herring – Current Client!
Excellent service & very professional too. Reynaldo & Tania Mena – Current Client!
Keeping in touch via emails and letters helps. It lets us know you haven’t forgotten us. Armond & Veronica Pasquale – Current Client!
Extremely satisfied with the outreach and feedback – not only on the market activity in general but specifically on the individual interest in our lot. We are completely confident in the expertise and commitment of Rick and his staff. Excellent customer/client care and communication. Always accessible. William & Nicki Holland – Current Client!
Rick Andrews does a wonderful job promoting your property and keeps you informed on all activity. Joel Rae – Current Client!
Truly professional and very understanding. #1 all the way! Thanks! Chuck & Kathy Talsky - Home Sold!
Century 21 Black Bear Realty is the third realtor we have had in this region. They are the ONLY agency that has even communicated their efforts and kept us updated through emails and correspondence. It is greatly appreciated and comforting to have that personal approach. We know how hard they are working to sell our property because we see it! William & Deborah Steube – Current Client!
Rick Andrews with Century 21 Black Bear Realty has been very informative in keeping us updated as to what is going on with our land for sale in Blairsville. They are a very busy professional Real Estate Company that cares about their clients. We would highly recommend this office to anyone buying or selling. Charlene & Mike Miller – Current Client!
Century 21 Black Bear Realty is the best realty company that we have worked with. Owner Rick Andrews and his staff are friendly, courteous, and possess outstanding customer service skills. They provide valuable feedback from persons who have viewed our home, which helps us in making any needed work or changes to make it more appealing! James & Leette Burns – Home Sold!
Our property was on the market for almost 2 years before we decided change to Black Bear Realty and Rick – he and his team sold the property within a year and were great to work with – wish we had gone with them at the start! Highly recommend Black Bear Realty and Rick Andrews. Fiona Charleton - Home Sold!
Appreciate the communication we receive regarding feedback on our property. The team is all very personable and professional. Joyce Baldwin & Linda Heatherly - Home Sold!
Rick sold 3 properties for us. First 2 were due to losses in the family. The 3rd was our home, and he exceeded our expectations. All 3 sales went smooth. Rick’s knowledge is broad. Which is why we let him lead with his professional guidance, and agreed with most of all of his suggestions. Thanks, Rick for a great experience! Ron & Fran Crosby - Home Sold!
We were very happy how promptly all of our questions about the transaction were dealt with. His assistant Angie was super and friendly. Great experience. James & Patricia Jones - Home Sold!
After using a different realty company for over one year, with very few showing, Rick Andrew's got the job done in just a few months. Vicki Dotson & Robin Strickland - Home Sold!
Rick Andrews is a straight shooter with first class knowledge and experience, and a top shelf staff - I could not have hoped for a better selling experience. Douglas Thomas - Home Sold!
Rick Andrews was great to work with. He was very knowledgeable of the market and kept us informed every step of the way. He worked well with the buyer and the lender over an extended period of time always keeping our interests first. He was extremely trustworthy. It is easy to see why he is number one in the area and we would not hesitate to use him again. Susan Hart - Home Sold!
Dealing with Rick and all of his staff was like dealing with family! Rick handled negotiations very well, and despite a major hiccup at closing, ( no fault of Century 21 ) he stuck by us and handled everything perfectly. We closed and everyone on both sides were extremely happy! Kim & Dee Ayers - Home Sold!
Without Rick’s patience and ability to make the deal work the closing would have never taken place. I would strongly recommend Rick as an agent that can get the job done. If I ever had another need for a Real Estate Broker in the North Georgia and Western North Carolina area I would certainly get Rick as my agent. Bill H. Barnet - Home Sold!
Thank you for your professional and courteous help with the sale…I can hardly believe that you were able to get a contract on the property hand have the sale closed in less than 90 days from the listing. That is a testimony to your skills, hard work and determination. Fenn Little - Vacant Lot Sold!
Ralph and I want to thank you and your staff for working so hard and doing such a great job on the sale of our home… The process of getting a house ready to sell is usually very stressful situation, especially when we live in a different location. We feel that you and your staff went the extra mile by showing, marketing and selling our home as well as easing that stress. Thank you so much for everything you did and we will definitely recommend you in the future. Ralph & Nan Frey - Home Sold!
As you know the real estate market in general began to decline about the time we listed with you. Yet your continuing optimism and persistent efforts never flagged. At our age we have had extensive experience in buying and selling homes. Please use this letter as an assurance to future clients that they will be in good hands if they choose you as their realtor. Richard Helsley - Home Sold!
Not only did he work tirelessly to push my property to as many markets as possible but quickly located a buyer. Once the temperamental buyers were found, he bent over backwards to keep everyone happy. He completely coordinated the closing working tirelessly with the lender, attorney and buyer. Not only was the closing successful the first time and without delay but he sold my home for full price! Troy Hooper - Home Sold!
Rick is very astute and I was pleased with the way he handled a very complicated negotiation and transaction; he gave very good advice and was a solid representative for me as a seller. Peter E. Johnson - Home Sold!
Rick Andrews has been working with me for the last several weeks and has done more to market the home I have for sale than any previous RE Agent. He is responsive, candid, experienced, and highly knowledgeable of the area. So far, so good! Phillis Walker - Home Sold!
Mr. Andrews is by far the leading broker in the area in terms of transactions. He has by far the best suite of Internet sites to get broad exposure. His office staff is extremely helpful, competent and very friendly. Mr. Andrews always gives the client his honest opinion, based on experience and knowledge of the area. He is very accessible and personable. He goes out of his way to be as helpful as possible and is a pleasure to work with. During the course of a long multi-year listing, we had numerous strategy meetings to discuss pricing, comparative properties in the area, and adjustments in marketing. Mr. Andrews provides a monthly sales report to all clients with commentary on local conditions and this information is quite valuable in keeping up with activity. Mr. Andrews was also very valuable during the negotiation process with the ultimate buyer, making excellent suggestions on how to maximize value and get the transaction completed. Mr. and Mrs. Rhodes - Home Sold!
Thanks to all of you for a good job! I left part of my heart in NC – not sure but may be back soon. Of course I will call you all first. Thanks for a job well done. Mr. and Mrs. Smith - Home Sold!
Wish all Business was ran this way. Rick is doing above all my expectations. Great communications & follow up. John Nicholson - Home Sold!

We…wanted to personally thank you for taking good care of us during the negotiations and closing on our lot. You spent lots of time with us on the phone, patiently answering each question and your explanations were detailed concerning each line on the papers we needed to sign. Thanks again for your caring attitude and we will definitely keep you in mind if we need your services again. Robert & Mary Ann Marks - Vacant Lot Sold!
I could not have asked for anyone to be more helpful in selling my river cabin than Century 21 was. They kept me posted as to the market, showings and possibilities. When the right buyers came along they made all the arrangements for closing, etc. Thanks Rick and Scenic 21 from a very satisfied client. Eloise Cawthon - Home Sold!
