Client Testimonials via Zillow:
“Virgil was great to work with. He clearly understood the market we were trying to sell in and he helped price the property to sell and we got what we hoped for in the final sale price. Before we had a buyer he was honest and up front about offers we were getting and encouraged us to wait for the right buyer who did eventually come along after only a few months on the market. He was very good at communicating the status of the sale as it moved along, even when he while he was on vacation. I have no problem recommending him as a real estate professional. You will be in good hands with Virgil!”
“My husband and I recently sold a property that was listed with Virgil Llewellyn – Gold Coast Properties / Bandon. We were impressed with his professionalism and attention to detail from the beginning. he handled our listing with integrity and honesty and went above and beyond to connect us with a wonderful buyer. We would most definitely recommend his services to anyone.”
“We came across Virgil Llewellyn at Gold Coast Properties in Bandon, Oregon and the process from start to finish turned out to be such a wonderful blessing to my wife and me. Being from out of state, not knowing the real estate market, in addition to not knowing anything about the local realtors in the area, proved to be less of a challenge than initially thought. Virgil was very knowledgeable, professional, and friendly to work with. He always kept us informed and used his expertise to give us the best service, even if it meant working nights and weekends. His immediate responses and knowledge of the local real estate market was such a blessing to us. Throughout the past several months, Virgil had been there every step of the way. He always answered every call or email no matter what time of day or night it was. His professionalism, mentorship, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated. We never felt that he was just out trying to sell us a “house,” but that he was a mentor to help answer any questions we had and to help us make the best decision possible. My wife and I are so happy with our home purchase and that is largely due in part to having an outstanding Realtor in your corner like Virgil. We highly recommend him to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a home.”
“Virgil was a very good agent. He was willing to take the time to answer all my questions in detail to make the deal. Virgil had very good resources and was extremely knowledgeable about the area and surrounding. He is kind and very friendly. I would not hesitate to use him again.”
“From the first time I called Virgil, I was impressed with his knowledge and honesty about the property my wife and I were interested in purchasing. He was completely up-front about everything so we knew we could trust him. Throughout the purchase experience, he kept us informed of the progress and reminded us of things we needed to do to keep the process moving forward. On his end, he followed through with everything he said he would do. This was a very smooth process for us and we attribute it to Virgil’s efforts and how easy it was to work with him. We would recommend Virgil to anyone interested in property in his area.”
“We called Virgil to sell our beach house which sits on ten acres in rural Oregon about miles South of Bandon, OR. With help I got the fully furnished home ready after about one month to sell by May and Virgil approved the finished product after earlier walk thrus to offer suggestions (remove clutter, etc). Virgil suggested listing for something like $620 K and we agreed on $598 K. I left, never to return. Virgil arranged for a spectacular video for prospective buyers. There was one low ball offer but Virgil correctly declined it without presenting it to us. Then nothing more happened until August when, in the space of a week, we received three offers. One was low but the other two were close to our asking price. Virgil handled the negotiations while consulting with us. Eventually we wound up with the two offers within three hundred dollars of each other and I think they were right about $590 K. We agreed to accept the higher offer (neither was all cash) and Virgil arranged for the other prospect to make a back up offer. The prospective buyer started removing contingencies including numerous inspections. Virgil was on site for at least some of them, I believe. He managed to persuade the prospective buyer to ignore one inspection that recommended tearing off all the board and batten siding and replacing it. Eventually the prospective buyer came back with a list of repairs totalling something like $10 K. I was disappointed as I wanted to sell “as is”. Which is what we have always done in the past in California and Nevada. But apparently Oregon law prevents that. I suggested we split the cost with the buyer and Virgil got them to agree. Things proceeded along to closing and I went to the title office in Reno with the power of attorney from my wife to sign the final documents. By then it was probably September or October. Unfortunately it turned out the power of attorney I had was deemed to be a copy and not the original. So I could not sign the necessary papers. Various legal maneuvers were considered and tried by lawyers I retained in Nevada and Oregon but nothing worked. Meanwhile the lender wanted another ten thousand to extend the terms of the loan and once again I offerred to split it with the prospective buyers and Virgil made the necessary arrangments. Eventually my wife died on January 26th and the property passed to me by operation of Oregon law. Virgil got to work and the deal closed on February 15th and the proceeds were deposited into our joint account on the 16th. Thru out the trying process Virgil kept working and optimistic altho I felt like giving up more than once.”
“So much of our wealth and/or future wealth is wrapped up in real estate and that’s why you’d be crazy not to go with someone good… or better yet, someone great! I’m telling you right now, Virgil is the real deal, he’s the guy you want. He helped me buy a great home and now I’m having him sell another place. He is professional, friendly, and knowledgeable. I don’t know anyone who hasn’t enjoyed their experience working with the man. I’m sure there are other good realtors out there but from experience I can wholeheartedly endorse Virgil.”
“Virgil is one of the best realtors I have worked with! He is very thorough and does his job very good. He is very responsive and works very hard to get the right property at the best price for his client. I would highly recommend him to others looking to buy or sell property and would definitely use him again for buying or selling properties in my future.”
“I have dealt with Virgil & his family for about 30 years on buying & selling several lots in Bandon, Oregon. He took over the business when his folks retired & has provided a seamless & high level of knowledge & expertise in all our negotiations. I wouldn’t do business with any other realtor for Oregon property! He is down to earth, relaxed & extremely up to date on all things about Oregon & real estate!”
“WE were in Bandon for my wife’s birthday back in April. Just for something to do we thought we would look at some property over there and asked a lady in the candy store if she could recommend someone. She told us about how anytime she need some help around the store Virgil would jump right in. That told me a lot about his character. He printed off several properties around town that we looked at. After coming home he followed it up with a few more. We started to negotiate on a bank repo which ended up having a lot of surprises we weren’t expecting. Virgil stepped right up and handled everything quickly and efficiently. With us being 3 hours away he took care of all the inspections, finding bids and contractors and not only helped us save thousands of dollars on the purchase price but also helped with some of the inspection fees. He is the best, most honest and professional realtor I have ever dealt with. Definitely would recommend him to anyone looking for property.””He was always very helpful, answered emails and calls quickly. I felt like he was honest. Nice guy. I will definitely recommend him in the future. He helped us navigate through our purchase, this was new to us. Since it was a bank owned property some aspects were new to us.”
“Well, I’m 47 years old and I think this is only the 2nd time I’ve stolen time away from my hectic life to write a review. A few months ago, I lost my Best Friend, my Precious Mom, and my heart, my interest to go on, and my diligence went with her to Heaven. Only because of my Mom asking me to “Pursue Your Dreams” have I fledged forward to leave where I am and go to beautiful Bandon on the Oregon Coast. I use to be a Full Service Realtor many many years ago. I know what to expect out of a GREAT Realtor. I had dealt with 3 different Realtors in the pursuit of property in Bandon. They all “Started Out” gung-ho, emailing listings that first day…and then…..NOTHING. No calls, no more emails, no more availability. Nothing but Lazy, LAZY people who are more interested in being retired and supplementing their income with a few real estate sales per year. TOTALLY FRUSTRATED….I THANKFULLY called Virgil Llewellyn at Gold Coast Properties in Bandon. He jumped right on the job sending only properties that met my criteria, and then FOLLOWED UP, and made himself available around my Crazy unpredictable schedule. This guy KNOWS his stuff!!! And it was more than Refreshing to be met with his level of HONESTY. Several times, he steered me away from a mistake by making sure I was made aware of upcoming pitfalls caused by city codes or county regs. Not being a local, this was such a good feeling to feel safe in his knowledge and CONCERN for my welfare. Virgil bends over backwards for you like only Myself did for my clients when I was a Realtor. Also, Virgil is a REALTOR, and not just a real estate agent. For those of you who don’t know the difference…..a Realtor is bound by a code of ethics, whereas a real estate agent isn’t. My Mom and I really do appreciate being led to Virgil, and I hope you will find this review helpful in your property search. Jesus is my Best Friend, and Virgil is my Realtor 🙂 Ha Ha!”
“We were looking for a house in Bandon, OR to purchase for a vacation rental. Our time scale was very short, and Virgil did a great job of quickly familiarizing us with the market in the area. He picked a few likely houses, showed them to us, and when we required additional information, he was very proactive in contacting other agents to obtain it. We changed our mind a couple of times, and he was patient, allowing us to reach a choice that we were happy with. A lot of the process of going through escrow was done remotely while we were out of state, and Virgil ensured that communication was prompt and effective. We’re very happy with our house, and the process of buying it!”
“Thank you ! Thank you ! Thank you ! Virgil you made our Bandon dream come true ! We have the best home sight ever ! After showing us many properties in the Bandon area and a lot of time spend together you hit it out of the ball park ! You made the transaction so easy for us ! Any one that is looking to buy a home or Property he is the man !”
“We recently sold the Bandon, OR vacation rental that Virgil acted as our agent to purchase 13 years ago. Through our years of ownership, as absentee owners, we worked with Virgil repeatedly and he always responded promptly and with local knowledge that was invaluable. If we needed a workman to perform a repair, he had the name. When we needed comps (comparables) for a re-finance, we called Virgil. Over the years he responded with assistance every time. Recently, during our sale, he kept us informed at every step, acted with professionalism on our behalf throughout the process, helped us negotiate through the paperwork, and did everything he could to make the sale go smoothly and end successfully. With over a dozen years of experience with Virgil, we highly recommend him as an honest, capable, knowledgeable, and easy-to-work-with agent.””I was the buyer of a Bandon home in a recent transaction using Virgil as my agent. Virgil was fantastic to work with, he stayed focused on deadlines and involved himself where possible from the beginning of the process to completion.”
“I purchased a single family building lot through Virgil. I never met him before the purchase, but was very impressed by his knowledge of real estate in general, contract negotiations, firm, fair and kept me informed of every step along the way. He even took extra steps dealing with government officials to make the deal happen. True professional!”
“Virgil was VERY helpful and professional handling the sale of our Mom’s house in Bandon. Couldn’t have asked for a better Realtor! He was ALWAYS available for any question or concern 24/7. Prompt replies to all text and emails and bent over backwards to help find solutions to problems that came up with the property!! Highly recommended!”
“We cannot say enough great things about Virgil if you are looking for a agent with a make it happen attitude this is your agent! Virgils knowledge of the Bandon market and negotiation skills are a excellent combination to help you achieve your goal of buying or selling!”
“When we began our search for property on the Oregon Coast, I emailed several agents, and Virgil was the only agent who responded to us. I thank every day that he did because as luck would have it, Virgil proved to be an outstanding agent for us. As we went through the process of finding property, purchasing the lot, and building a new home in Bandon, Virgil showed a great deal of integrity and professionalism as our agent. Now we are selling that property, and once again, Virgil is our agent thus proving our absolute faith in his ability to market and sell our home. We highly recommend Virgil as an agent who is trustworthy, hard-working, and professional.”
“Virgil kept us informed of the Bandon real estate market so we listed at a competitive price and he found us a buyer by informing other area agents. We closed in approximately 6 weeks from list. You will not regret using Virgil’s services. AND, he answers his phone, returns your calls and emails promptly. Best move we made.”
