So please take a moment to read the following testimonials. Believable, genuine and honest reviews are worth their weight in gold. They help to outline my experience and integrity, as well as making it clear how much I enjoy helping my clients with their real estate needs.



"Mimi was very patient and was very professional.  We looked at a good number of houses located all over the triangle and Mimi was there.  She is very good at negotiating and is knowledgeable about features and amenities on the houses we were looking at.  We will use her again in the future.|"

Nathan Wicker, Wake Forest NC


 

"I was recommended to Mimi by two clients who spoke highly of her. Upon our initial meeting, not only did she help me find a home, she helped find a temporary apartment while house searching. Any time i felt lost or unsure of anything I knew I could contact Mimi or Rebecca to get my questions answered. Highly Recommended for you home buying needs"

Derek Fredrick, Raleigh NC


 


"I loss my husband suddenly and knew I couldn't afford my house any longer. Mimi happened to be at a friend's house preparing to sell her home. Mimi came over and we talked at length. She listed my house and had it sold in 2 days with full price. Rebecca and Mimi both helped with all the ins and   outs with the sale and closing. They both gave me so much support and never ignored me even when I called with my questions. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND  her over and over. Thank you Mimi and Rebecca!"

Cindy Stinard, Fuquay Varina NC


 


"Mimi was amazing to work with! After meeting her and touring some houses, based on her thoroughness and great knowledge of the area, we quickly knew she was the realtor for us. I think she knew what neighborhood we'd end up in much before we did! When it came time for negotiation, we believe things   went very well because she was serving as our representative. We have complete trust in her and can't recommend her enough."

Michael Snusz, Holly Springs NC



 

"During one of the most stressful times of my life (like anyone buying or selling) I had the honor to be referred to Mimi Frances. I have worked with her personally and professionally and would not hesitate to refer her to anyone seeking a professional, knowledgeable agent. Not only would I recommend Mimi, I have several times. I've been so impressed with her knowledge, patients and skills in mutual negotiations, I even recommended my mother use her for the sale and purchase of her home, which she has and is also beyond pleased with Mimi. She is an amazing agent, extremely professional, down to earth and knows her business. SHE IS WONDERFUL and you would be a fool not to utilize her skills. Mrs. Pritchett - loyal customer for life"

Unicorn Pritchett, Fuquay Varina NC


 




"
Mimi is the absolute best! We probably met dozens of realtors during our house search and Mimi was by the far the most honest, easy to talk to, and hardworking! The best part about her is that she is extremely informative!! Home buying can be a very stressful process but Mimi made it as stress free and as fun as possible. I would never trust anyone else to help me purchase or sell any property ever again! Thank you Mimi - your the best!"

Vanessa Sosa, Garner NC


 


"When I think of "value-add" relationships, realtors used to be at the bottom of my list, but Mimi Francis changed my mind. Mimi showed me what a true realtor ought to bring to the table when buying AND selling a home. Mimi understood the market, she knows the positive and negatives of every aspect   of a home , and she assisted us in navigating through negotiations on both ends of the spectrum. She and Rebecca both worked tirelessly throughout the process to ensure we got the new home of our dreams! Thank you Mimi!" 


The Clements, Angier  NC


 

"I have had several past experiences with real estate agents which were lack luster to say the least. Mimi changed my perspective on what a real estate agent has to offer their clients. Her knowledge of houses, expertise in the field of real estate, excellent customer service skills and amazing team   made her stand out from the crowd of real estate agents. Selling & Buying a house with Mimi and her team was an absolutely easy process and I would reach out to Mimi again without any hesitation should I be in the need for a real estate agent again."

The Sosas, Garner NC


 

"MIMI IS THE BEST! If anyone is looking for the best, she is it! Words cannot describe what Mimi has done for my family. Mimi is not your ordinary real estate agent. She took on a very challenging job when she agreed to list my parent’s house and search for a new one. It was not just an ordinary   listing. She was not dealing with an ordinary family situation. From the first day in speaking to her I felt that we were in good hands. I live 500 miles away and she always took extra time in the evening to keep me abreast of everything that was happening. The honesty she portrays is genuine.  She is extremely professional while being compassionate of our situation. She is very knowledgeable in her field and went over and above in giving us added resources. Her assistant, Rebecca was beyond fabulous. The procedures they have in place kept the whole process running smoothly.   It was not an easy job to do what Mimi & Rebecca did. After the closing, I felt as if I was saying good bye to a friend."

The Beeses, Raleigh NC


 


"Thank you so much for your knowledge, guidance and patience you extended to us as we went through the home buying process! We feel like it was just meant to be when we met Mimi at the open house. We are settling in and love the house even more than we imagined. We hope your holiday season is filled with love and joy!"

Evan and Kelly Lawrence, Fuquay Varina NC


 


 "Yesterday I closed on my first home. While nervous and excited at the same time I'm beyond happy. Since this is my second house purchase but the first to call a home of my own. I always plan my life around my business to make sure it can be both multi use. This home here is the foundation of something greater. This home is the foundation of my future little family. Giving them a roof to live under and a sense of pride to myself to be able to do so. I'm beyond thankful for everyone around me who contributed to this through out the years; my parents, my work family and GAC's clients/friends. A big thank you to Mimi Francis for her superb customer service and guidance through all this. God bless!"

Guillermo Amaya, Raleigh NC


 


"Without hesitation, we will recommend Mimi Francis to anyone in a heartbeat. She’s dedicated, smart and she really know what she’s doing as a realtor. We needed to find a home quickly in NC. She toured us around and looked to houses in a day and at night of that same day, we made an offer. Then Mimi finished all the paper works for us even it’s after 9:30PM. And the next day, our offer was accepted by the seller and everything from there went quickly and smoothly. We moved into our new home in just 27 days from offer to closing. Mimi’s closing coordinator, Rebecca is such an asset on her team. She work so hard coordinating with us about everything just to make sure that the entire process of our move will be flawless. Mimi and Rebecca never missed on responding to any questions that we have. They are very prompt and always on time and honestly, they made us feel that we’re the only client they have because they are so focus on the things needed to be done for us during the process. Mimi and Rebecca… thank you for everything. You guys are such a great team and we did not sugarcoat anything that we stated in this review because you both deserve the best in life. You really made us feel very important by attending to all the details on the most stressful days of our moving and house hunting. WE LOVE OUR NEW HOME here in Raleigh and both of you made it possible."

The Velardes, Raleigh NC


 


"Mimi was great through the whole process. Mimi knowledge is off the charts compared to the other realtors we interviewed.  The other realtors didn't know what to price our house because of all the extra's. They were going to sell it for 28,500 less than Mimi. Mimi assistant Rebecca is the best!



Rebecca is a asset to her company and makes everything so seamless.  Five star experience!"

The Kings, Willow Spring NC


 


"Mimi and Rebecca are the best at what they know and do. There was never a time that our questions were not answered or a time where we felt neglected. Mimi and Rebecca were more than our realtor, they became our friends."

Donald and Janiece, Dunn  NC


 


 "As first time home buyers, my husband and I were nervous about purchasing our first home. However, Mimi made us feel at ease with her thorough knowledge about the home buying process. It actually turned out to be a much easier process than we originally thought! Mimi couldn't have done it all without Rebecca whom was AWESOME! The two things I value most about Mimi and Rebecca is that they kept our best interests first and they were always available to answer our questions. I highly recommend A Better Way Homes Realty to aid anyone in the home buying/selling process." 

The Everetts, Zebulon NC

The Langleys, Holly Springs NC


 


"Thanks for being the best realtors anyone could ask for! There were many bumps in the road, but y'all went above and beyond and we couldn't have done it without you. We're loving the new house - it's perfect for us. Please don't ever stop doing what you do, because we're going to need you again someday and we can't imagine doing it without you! PS. Thanks for the address labels!"

Hannah & Jennifer, Durham NC


 


"Mimi and Rebecca are the best in the business! They know their stuff and are so responsive and attentive! I had no idea where to begin in selling a home! Not only did they get the ball rolling, but they never dropped it! from beginning to end these ladies were an absolute joy to work with--I trusted them completely and they didn't disappoint! My house sold in 2 days and the entire experience was so amazing ! My only regret is not being able to use them to buy my new house!! ( i moved out of state) I recommend A Better Way Homes to anyone who wants the job done right!"

The St Clairs, Fuquay Varina NC


 


"As the old saying goes "You don't know what you don't know", well there was a lot we didn't know! So thank God for Mimi Francis and her team!



Her knowledge during the sell of our home and the purchase of our new home was both priceless and assuring. Mimi is awesome and sits the bar high for others in her field. Her experience and wealth of knowledge benefited us greatly on both ends. We really enjoyed working with her and would recommended her to anyone and everyone!"

The Barretts, Apex NC


 


"We were in over our heads on a new build, and Mimi come to our rescue! We were first time homebuyers and had no idea how exhausting building/buying a home could be. Mimi worked so hard for us, and always responded to our numerous questions with haste. She's fierce and she did an exceptional job negotiating various items for us. Every interaction with her and Rebecca (the closing coordinator) was pleasant. If you are going to participate in a real estate transaction, don't dare enter one alone. And don't dare do it with any realtor other than Mimi."

The Meders, Garner NC


 


"Mimi was great. She stuck with us as we honed our definition of what we wanted - helped us do that by asking the right questions. Great with pros and cons of homes. She knows a lot about spotting signs of good or not so good construction. Excellent business advice while negotiating. And she's a pleasure to work with. Not to mention her great support team. Highly recommend Mimi and her team."

The Allisons, Clayton NC


 


"We met Mimi back in 2010 and we were just killing time looking at a nice neighborhood. There were some open houses going on and so we took a look. Met Mimi at one of the houses and knew that I would one day do business with her. By chance Mimi ended up being a customer of mine. Fast forward to 2014 and when we were ready to buy our first home the first number I dialed was Mimi's. She was there for us from before the beginning and after then end. Mimi and her team have been great to work with. I have recommended Mimi before this process and still do now. Our entire subdivision may not have fences if not for Mimi's negotiation skills. Amazing professional, team leader and an amazing person."

Lawrence Wilson, Garner NC


 


"I love Mimi! She displays professionalism throughout the entire home buying process. When you don't understand a step in the process, she will take the time to explain it. Mimi also has wonderful staff members working with her to ensure a painless transition into home ownership. With all of her expertise and knowledge in the industry, you will just adore her. Whenever I meet someone that is looking to buy a home, I always recommend Mimi - the best realtor in NC!!! She helped my 26 year old son purchase his first home in June 2015. (That was a task within itself) but she got him through it. Thank you Mimi :)"

Jacque Floyd, Raleigh NC


 


"Mimi and her team exceed my expectation!!! They make the process of selling and buying my house so easy. Mimi is the right person to contact if you want to sell or buy your house. While I was on vacation Mimi took care of meeting the carpet cleaning company since I have a delay in my flight; that avoid delay in my closing. While I was in the look for my new home, they were very helpful finding the right place for me. Mimi explained the process of buying the house so well that I have no problems understanding the process and she was there at all time."

Maria, Holly Springs NC

Tonya Mangum, Knightdale NC


 


"I just wanted to take the time to tell you what a pleasure it has been working with you while searching for my new home.  I have purchased several homes over the last ten years but you have been by far the most dynamic, energetic and knowledgeable agent I have worked with!  From our conversations, you were able to pick out homes that fit my budget and quality of lifestyle, right up until we found the perfect home for my family!



Once again, I want to thank you for all your hard work and dedication in helping me find my new home, Mimi.  Keep up the good work!"

Kendall, Morrisville NC

Grace & Joel, Fuquay Varina NC

Michlelle, Holly Springs NC


 


"We tried 'For Sale by Owner' and using discount brokers - the result was we were on the market for over a year and still waiting for a buyer.  then we came across Mimi - she didn't sound like other real estate brokers, she seemed to actually have a plan and we decided to list with her.  The result?  Sold within 100 days!!  We were extremely pleased with her services and would urge others to trust her ability to sell their home."

Terry & Marge, Holly Springs NC


 


"Thanks to our Realtor, Mimi Francis, we were able to sell our house in one month.  In the current tough economy, the extra services that Mimi provided can really make a difference from initial marketing to guiding us all the way through the closing process.  We recommend the professional approach and experience that Mimi brings to all her buyers and sellers."

Bob & Amy,  Raleigh NC


 


"Hey there. We had our annual homeowners meeting last night. It was 2 hours of "confirmation" that I had the right realtor. So many people complained about not knowing certain things before they bought their house, and every time I thought... you should've had a realtor. And even better yet, my realtor."

The Wilsons, Garner NC


 


"Mimi strengths are: honesty and integrity, listened to what I asked for and answered questions, took my ideas / suggestions as well.  We would refer her to others we know looking to buy or sell"

Mike & Beth, Apex NC


 


"Don't know what our family would have done without your knowledge and assistance - thanks, 'Real Estate Mimi'!"

Teish and Samad, Raleigh NC


 


"Mimi Francis has been a pleasure to interact with. Her understanding ways and pleasant personality always shine through. Through her help in finding our home, our family has dubbed her, "Our Guardian Angel." We've bought and sold quite a few houses but we've never had a real estate agent as capable and caring as Mimi!"

Kat & Bill, Apex NC


 


"Thanks, Mimi - You Rock! No wonder they call you 'Real Estate Mimi'!"
