Some kind words from just a few of our recent satisfied clients:
Chase & Michelle Osborne…Claudia is one of the best realtors in the Greater Atlanta area, she has been very helpful in the selling and purchasing of my two homes over the past few years. She is very knowledgeable about the industry and knows exactly what to look for in every situation. Her greatest quality is her attentiveness, she is always willing to help and makes sure you are a priority. I would and will continue to recommend her throughout my community.
Taylor Bauer…”Claudia helped me through my first home buying experience, and it could not have gone more smoothly working with her! Claudia is extremely knowledgeable and very thorough in her review of all aspects of the potential homes I was looking at. She was in constant communication with me throughout the entire process, and I am so thankful she was the one who helped me purchase my first home! Highly recommend!
Ed & Chrisann Rowe…”We were so lucky to have Claudia Stipe from The Stipe Team as our realtor for our new lake home in Cumming, GA. Claudia was absolutely fantastic with all the details and excellent in the negotiation of our new home. We could not have picked a better agent. Claudia knew what we were looking for and followed up on everything. It took a lot of time for us to find that ‘right house’ and she was so patient. Then when the perfect house came on the market, Claudia was there to help with each item from the inspection report to the closing…that was easy and painless! We highly recommend Claudia Stipe and The Stipe Team. We are thrilled with the house and the entire transaction!!”
Evan Pitts…”Claudia made it a fun and easy process! She did an excellent job negotiating with the seller and worked hard to get me the most for my money! I couldnt be happier with the property! Thanks!!”
Doug & Dawn Shuda…”Claudia is true real estate professional, a strong advocate for her clients and incredibly helpful throughout the process. She was always enthusiastic and seeming to find joy working with her clients, and clearly understands the market. She was very responsive, proactively managing all of the details associated with the transaction and kept us aware of deadline dates that were all met. Throughout this, Claudia was always available and reliable, proactively communicating with all parties. Claudia is a strong advocate every step of the way in the process, very diligent, ethical and always looking out for her client’s best interest. Over the years we have purchased a number of properties all over the country, and I can say with ease and confidence that Claudia stands tall amongst all of the other realtors we have worked with on both sides of the table! I would strongly and confidently recommend Claudia Stipe to anyone and everyone looking to purchase property in the Atlanta area!”
Eric & Katie Goodwin…” We first came to Claudia after several years of renting, knowing fairly little about the home buying process. We had some idea of what we wanted, but needed a lot of help narrowing things down and with the actual process of purchasing the home. Claudia was an invaluable resource through the whole process. She made herself available whenever we needed her, and was very accommodating with our occasionally tricky schedule when it was time to go and look at homes. She knows the area very well, and has detailed knowledge about many of the local neighborhoods and their advantages and disadvantages, and provided us with all of the knowledge we needed to make the right choices. Her professionalism and is above reproach. When the time came to purchase the home we had chosen, she was a great advocate for us, working through several issues with the seller and their agent efficiently and professionally. She made sure we got the best deal possible, and helped us out every step of the way as we dealt with the paperwork. She also made recommendations for a loan agent and other services, which all worked out very well. Though there are a lot of realtors in this area to pick from, we know we made the right choice with Claudia
Josh & Brandy Emmett…”We have now used Claudia to sell two houses and purchase two homes. To say I highly recommend her is an understatement! Claudia’s knowledge of the Atlanta area, combined with her great personality and top notch responsiveness make her the only agent I trust. My Wife and I must have looked at 60 different homes spread out over three counties. Every time I called or texted her, she responded to me with in minutes. She never let us settle for a house we didn’t truly love and she never, ever made us feel as if we were wasting her time. She has a great marketing plan and is truly a first class agent.
Lee & Heather French…” I am so thankful we used Claudia Stipe to buy our Lake House. Her expertise in Lake property made our search and purchase very easy. Claudia always had our best interest in mind and always made us a priority.I highly recommend Claudia for any realtor needs. In fact this is the second time we used Claudia to purchase a home.”
Chase Osborne…”Claudia helped me purchase my first home and it was a great experience! I’m a successful millennial who had a lot of questions about the process, she was very helpful and full of real estate knowledge.
Brian & Kerry Langley…” Claudia was an absolute professional throughout the entire sales process. To begin with she had a unique marketing approach for our area that no other realtor mentioned and that drove our decision to list our home with her. She was very fast and accurate with her communication, was an excellent negotiator and even followed up long after the deal was done to make sure we had received our tax refunds from the escrow account. Long story short, I would highly recommend her as an agent.”
Juanita deRoos…Claudia was very knowledgeable about the local market and the home sale process. She was very responsive and quick to address any questions I had and was very straightforward in everything she did. I would definitely use her again.”
Mike & Michelle Grabowski…”Claudia is the absolute BEST realtor we have ever worked with! She is very, very sharp and aggressive in her role as a realtor, and from the moment we met her to our final closing, we knew we were working with an exceptional realtor. We met with her after noticing her listed homes sold quickly even in the winter months. Claudia came well prepared with a comprehensive market analysis and facts regarding how her marketing programs could benefit us, all in a genuine down to earth manner. She made home improvement suggestions which we did, and our home was listed accurately for the market with numerous showings. While our home was on the market she took us out to look at homes and made sure they met our needs. She is an expert negotiator and communicated with us during the entire process and worked tirelessly to facilitate the sale. We would use her again in a heartbeat and consider her one of the finest persons we have met.”
Chris & Michelle Lee…”This is the second time we have worked with Claudia. She sold our first home in less than 2 months and helped us negotiate our dream home! With her expertise and dedication we were able to close on both homes within a month and have a seamless transition. I would highly recommend Claudia for buying and selling a home.
Susan Shupak…”Claudia was diligent about keeping my husband and me on tract for all the many steps involved in buying a home, including working with our lender. Her expertise and knowledge was invaluable! She knows what she’s doing and will protect your interests buying and selling a home, as she also listed and sold my previous home in 2 weeks! It was FUN looking at houses with her! She is one “sharp cookie” with a great personality!”
Tanya Casiano…”She’s the nicest, most knowledgeable, and most straight forward realtor I’ve ever come across. She’ll provide you with her honest opinion of a house even if it means having you pick the least expensive option. She’s very detailed oriented and would always point out any potential problems she saw. She didn’t try to manipulate our decision, instead she would provide us with all the available information so that we could make our own. She’s extremely welcoming and has a very worm and endearing personality. She was extremely helpful in the closing process as well. Couldn’t be happier with her services!”
Larry & Diane Royston…”Claudia was both our buyers’ agent and selling agent in the sale of our old home and purchase of our new one. Claudia was very responsive and helpful, and worked through several issues in the sale of our home. Claudia followed up after every showing and provided us with the feedback from the potential buyers. The advertising Claudia provided on the real estate marketing websites was very thorough, and she did a very good job in the photography of our home and with the description details. We would definitely recommend Claudia to anyone buying or selling their home and looking for a Professional Realtor.”
Marge Gargosh…I lived in an apartment and needed to be out by a particular date; Claudia did a wonderful job pulling homes in the areas I wanted to live. We found several I liked, but I became discouraged because each time I put in an offer, someone else had just made a better one. I told Claudia that I was out of time because my lease would be up in 3 weeks, and decided to find another apartment. It would cost me a couple of thousand to move, and I still wouldn’t have my own home. This is how I know Claudia is an exceptional realtor, because of her determination and willingness to not give up, I have this lovely, PERFECT home. She pushed me to try just a little longer to try to find the right place. Because of her unwillingness to give up, we found it and I’m here. Thank you Claudia!
Ted & Linda Koostra…”We were relocating from Michigan to Georgia. Trying to find a house long distance is not easy. We worked for a couple of months with another realtor, and were not happy. I signed up for Angie’s List and found Claudia. She really cares that you get a home that you will be happy with. She was always very accommodating to our last minute schedule. When we looked at properties she would educate us on possible problems, things we didn’t even notice. As the months went buy we were beginning to think of settling for less than we were looking for. She encouraged us that we could do better than what we had seen. She was right we finally found a home that works for our family and couldn’t be happier. Claudia is a gem, and you will not be sorry you chose her; you will have a great experience!”
Mike & Marcie Friedl…“We were very blessed having Claudia as our realtor. After 16 years we didn’t realize what it takes to sell our home and it’s memories. Claudia went “beyond the beyond” in customer service and guiding us through the required steps–with an outcome beyond expectation. Our house was priced to sell and it did in just 4 days! Consider us a solid reference.”
Jim & Marcia Gilmore…“Claudia is the best realtor we have ever known. She worked with us for over 2 years to find us a home and help us with our plans to move from Florida to GA. She is very knowledgeable and guide us in buying the perfect home in Suwanee, GA. We highly recommend Claudia as a professional, experienced real estate agent.”
Ray & Darlene Wilkings…”After our initial meeting with Claudia, we were impressed with her professionalism, attitude, and optimism. From the very beginning, she was honest with us about every aspect of the process, and delivered on her promise to work hard on our behalf. She was available to us for discussions ranging from pricing concerns to staging of our home. Our house sold relatively quickly, which was unexpected in the current market. We would highly recommend Claudia to anyone who is in search of a realtor that listens to the client and delivers on promises.”
David & Elaine Lewis…“From the initial meeting with Claudia through the entire sale, she was the most professional, experienced and kind realtor we have ever dealt with. Claudia went above and beyond to handle details that we easily could have overlooked. Her negotiations on our behalf were very “in tune” with our goals and she protected us beyond our expectations. She handled everything with professionalism that is not all that common in today’s market. We highly recommend Claudia to anyone to in the market that needs to buy or sell a home. We assure you that you will not be disappointed.
Steve & Susie Schutt…We would like to thank you for your care, time, resources and project management skills; you interfaced with the contractors on all aspects of the renovation, giving us time to focus on our new home. Your real estate experience and marketing resources provided for an early sale, during the holiday season, and at a price we were looking for; we could not have done it without you!
David & Janelle Nelems…”We recently worked with Claudia Stipe on the sale of our home in Grand Cascades. We sold our house in approximately one month for close to our asking price in a depressed market…very impressive. Throughout the entire process Claudia showed wonderful initiative and professionalism. I initially chose Claudia because I had heard overwhelmingly positive feedback about her knowledge of the local real estate market and dedication to customer satisfaction. After our experience, I agree completely. I would encourage anyone who is looking for a savvy business professional to consider Claudia Stipe.
Sara Kleinfeld…Claudia, you were by far the greatest realtor I have had the opportunity to work with. You were there by my side and always looking out for my best interest. There were times I was thinking with my heart, and you brought me back to reality. I can’t thank you enough for all that you did for me. I realize you do this for all your clients and that’s what makes you the best. When and if I move, you will be the first person I call.
Ed & Grace Wilder…My husband’s job took us to Virginia, and Claudia worked closely with the contractor to get our home ready for the market. Once it was listed, Claudia had our home listing everywhere, and the home activity was through the roof. Within 10 days we had an accepted offer. Claudia worked extremely hard at doing what was best for us. She was always on time and always did what she said. She is the standard by which we will measure all real estate agents by going forward.
Scott & Susan Bruder…“We were out-of state home buyers; Kim & Claudia helped us successfully navigate through a more complicated foreclosure purchase. The guidance and service provided by the Stipe-Vickery Team was the best customer service experience we have ever encountered. Kim Vickery and Claudia Stipe were always dependable, very conscientious and always considerate of others – qualities that are hard to find in today’s business world. You can absolutely trust Kim’s and Claudia’s guidance and knowledge of the local real estate market.
Nic & Jennifer Gaines…Claudia has a talent that identifies the homebuyer’s wants and tailors the search for her client’s personalities. Claudia was never overbearing, always accommodating to our schedules, respectful of our principles, and championed our best interests. Claudia coached us through the entire home-buying process and kept us updated on any changes, addressing our concerns, and patiently educating us on our numerous questions. She even took the extra time to check-in with us after our move to make sure that everything was going well with the home. We greatly appreciated her skill to balance professionalism with a warm, open disposition.
Hugh & Aimee Calvert…“One of our first steps in our move from Chicago to Atlanta was to find a realtor that knew the real estate Atlanta real estate market since we had no contacts in the area. The Stipe-Vickery Team website came up on the first page and it was tremendous. After registering on the site, I received a call from Claudia, and she became my source of information on all things about the Atlanta area. Her insights about the area, the schools, and the local market were invaluable. Claudia gave a very personal touch to our experience; her website is excellent, but she is even more of a gem. Our best interest was her focus from day one. We highly recommend Claudia.”
Russell & Kristi Pargeon…”Claudia was always available to show us properties as soon as it came on the market, and we appreciated her willingness to always be available. She never rushed us to make a decision and was always very prompt in finding out information for us. I have told several co-workers and friends about our experience and will look forward to being lasting friends with Claudia. We highly recommend the Stipe-Vickery Team.
Alfred & Jacqueline Binford- “When my husband found out that he was being transferred to GA from New Jersey, we started searching the web for a realtor. That’s when we found Claudia. After contacting her and letting her know what our needs were, she immediately responded with information about the different areas, schools, and available homes. From that point on, we knew she as the agent we wanted to work with. She had our best interest from the beginning to the end. She acted professional, and negotiated very well with the listing agents and was there for us during the whole process. Claudia was always available to answer any questions at any time, and wanted to make sure that everything was clear and that we were satisfied….We would highly recommend Claudia to anyone.”
Clayton & Lorraine Carter…“We were so fortunate to have found you! After making email contact with Claudia, we never considered another agency. As out of state home buyers, you helped us find our perfect home in less than three days. You helped us through every step of the purchasing process, the inspection, the appraisal and the closing. Because of your guidance and knowledge, our family’s relocation has been a positive experience.”
Lanny & Sylvia Gates…“We have bought and sold several homes, and you are by far the best agent we have ever used. You were always available when we called and had a very proactive approach to selling our home. We felt very lucky that we sold our house so quickly in a down market. You did not give up even when we were sure that we would not come to agreement, and you were able to bring our buyers back to the table when it seemed the deal was dead. We would be happy to recommend you without hesitation.”
Tom Meador & Natalie Berger…We are so pleased with the house and the super job you did for us. Your knowledge, responsiveness and sound advice were key to making the process and negotiations understandable and successful. We are especially grateful for your strong advocacy as our representative; very reassuring knowing you were there for us. Thanks for your guidance, support and representing us so successfully. Having now bought and sold a dozen homes between us, we can say with conviction that we would be pleased to refer and recommend you in the strongest way.”

John & Amy Kiernan…“Thank you for all of your assistance over the past few months. I know this will be a home my family and I will enjoy for years to come. Amy and I are thankful that Josh and Brandy recommended you to us. I will definitely recommend you to anyone looking for a home in the future.
Lee & Heather French…”After considering several realtors, we chose Claudia because of her expertise in the South Forsyth area and for her recommendations from several neighbors. We needed someone with a broad range of knowledge in all areas of the real estate market including short sales and foreclosures. She made herself readily available at our convenience, and provided professional and relevant feedback about the property conditions, yet never imposed her opinions on us. She always worked on our behalf and in our best interest. She genuinely wanted us to be happy with our home purchase, and is genuinely warm and friendly with a great sense of humor, and I know you will enjoy working with her
Nick & Melissa Marlin…”Thank you for helping us find such a great home. You were ready and willing to show us all the homes we wanted to see, and I am so glad you stayed on top of searching for new listings and was able to find us a great home for a really great price.

Seth & Kelly Wende…” Everything had to happen so quickly, and you stayed with us every step of the beat. Without your guidance and kindness, I don’t know if we would have been so fortunate. Thank you for being so available, easy, and honest. It was obvious that you just wanted us to find our perfect home, and without you we would not have.
Josh Reaktenwalt…“Claudia did an outstanding job helping me complete the sale of my condo in such a tough environment. I have nothing but nice things to say about the her! She was extremely respectful, prompt, kind, and considerate and truly exemplified compassion. She was honest and customer oriented. These qualities make any business prestigious!

Rob & Teri Gasway…”We feel your marketing campaign was far superior to the competition and helped us get a good price in a tough market. Many of our friends say we were lucky to sell so quickly in this market. We tell them luck had nothing to do with it, we had a great Realtor!”
Mark & Heather Stegall…”With so few buyers in the marketplace and so many homes on the market, we knew we needed a professional and experienced team to market our home. We could not afford any mistakes at any point in the process, and I am happy to report that you both exceeded our expectations.”
Joseph Roof…”I recently used Claudia Stipe to sell my father’s estate home in Olde Atlanta Club. She far exceeded my expectations. Because of her hard work, the house sold quickly and for a good price. That was quite an accomplishment in today’s market. Claudia Stipe has my highest recommendations. She is one of the few Realtors today that will do what they say.”
John & Megan Nagel…”For the first few months we looked at anything that came our way without the faintest idea of what to do with the home we found. Then we found Claudia. Working with Claudia was a blessing. She was not pushy, but honest and helpful with advice and really helped us realize what we needed and wanted in our first home. We ended up with the home of our dreams, and it is beyond anything we had previously imagined. As young, first time home-buyers, the entire process can be quite daunting, but Claudia made it a comfortable, enjoyable experience.”
Elizabeth Handyside…“From the very first minute, Claudia was working hard for me. She searched property after property to find the right fit for me. While I am certain that she is accustomed to handling much higher price points, she never made me feel any less important than any other client, and never put any pressure on me to try to get me into something that I could not handle financially. She worked tirelessly to help me find the perfect home. As I pull into my driveway I gratefully thank her for all her hard work as I can finally say I am “home”.
Jason & Jennifer Rucker…”We found Claudia Stipe through her website and could not have made a better choice. From the beginning of our search through the closing, she made the home buying process enjoyable and easy. This relocation could have been difficult with two small children and a home to sell in another state, but was simplified with their help. You could not ask for a more stress free move.”
Chad Walton…“What makes the Stipe Team so great is their support, advice and desire to go out of their way to make your home stand out from the rest. The bottom line to me was my home sold at the price and timing that exceeded my expectations!”
Lonnie & Laura Cobb…”We really appreciate your help in making a highly stressful transaction into a calmer and more sane one. Your knowledge and professionalism helped turn a trying time into what buying a home should be…a joyous time.”
Bubba & Sunny McDonald…”Not only did our home sell in a timely manner, but the communication throughout the process was great! I truly believe you two went the ‘extra mile’ for us, but I know from experience that this would be the same with any client you serve.”
Paul Lowry…”I highly recommend Claudia Stipe and plan to use her again for my new construction, and I’m a builder and Realtor. She did an excellent job for me and made the process smooth and easy for me.”
Doug Houser“I never met realtors that had the energy and contacts to pull off all the things you did for me.”
Darin & Sherry Muenchow…”You provided us with excellent service, great advertising, but more importantly, the TRUST we needed to sell our home!”
