Norm and the MacDonald Home Team were a pleasure to work with, knowledgeable, and willing to work with us on very short notice. We would absolutely use this team again in the future, and recommend everyone we know in the market to buy or sell to use the MacDonald Home Team! - GD & TD

It was quite a nice experience that work with Norman to finding our dream home. He is a real gentle man. Never too pushy and always listen and understand what you dream of.

Bought a Single Family home in 2016 for approximately $200K in Greenville, SC.
We were new to the area and this was our first home buying experience. Norm was extremely helpful in finding us the house we wanted and walking us through the process. Would definitely recommend!

So easy to work with! Helped us find our dream home. Also sold our old town home, with 3 offers on the first day of being listed! Very knowledgeable about the area and helped us negotiate. Greer SC

Norm was very knowledgeable of the area and helped us price appropriately. He provided good instructions on what we had to do to prepare our house to sell and have it show its best. He got our house sold in about 3 weeks after we put it on the market, and we got about 97% of the asking price. Norm also helped us purchase our new construction home, he helped get us a good deal and a few extras from the builders. He knows what to look for when picking a lot and going through the construction process. I highly recommend Norm for either selling or buying a new home. CP

Very personable. Good people to work with. Usually responded to requests within a day or two. Enjoyable experience. We worked with both Norm and his son Jon. Greenville SC

Norm helped me with the purchase of my first home and walked me through various steps of the process. I had to get out of the first contract that I signed due to a miscommunication, and Norm made the process as easy as possible. When I contacted him again once I found another home that I liked, we picked right back up and closed the deal quickly. Simpsonville SC

Sold many homes in our lifetime thus we have used many different real estate agents. Loved that Norm was Furman graduate and he represented that education and their market well with a near perfectly estimate listing price and flawless execution as not only did we sell quickly but felt blessed to get just over 98% of asking. HIGHLY recommend before you decide to list or sell that you at least invite them into your home and hear their story of why having two for the price of one makes so much sense. Great people, professional process, market price, quick smooth closing, helped us through every step of the journey. Great Job McDonald team! Greenville SC

I am a 1st time home buyer and Norm was very helpful with walking me through the process and showing me the property twice. He also got me a great price on the house which I feel is very important when I make any large scale purchases. I would recommend them and will use them again, CBW

Norm not only helped me sell my home but also helped me purchase a new home with closing all in the same day. He really worked hard to get me the best deals and listened to my needs for a new place. I was very happy with all he accomplished for me and I am loving my new place! JA

Great experience with Norm in my house buying adventure. I had a short window of time to find home before lease on apartment expired. Norm was ready and available with variety of listing. I would use their service in future home purchase. NT

Helped me every step of the process. Very knowledgeable about Greenville and any legal and paperwork stuff. Handled setting up any appointments for me. Greenville SC

Norm did a great job helping my husband and I find the right home within budget in the Greer SC area. He was very knowledgeable on Greenville area. He was quick to respond to our request and flexible for showings. We are very happy with the house we chose in a neighborhood he directed us to. We would recommend the Norm and Phyllis team to anyone looking for a starter home. BJB

Norm was recommended to me by one of the mortgage institutions I visited when searching for a loan. I was very impressed when I first met with Norm by his local knowledge and by his experience in the Greenville area. I have lived in Greenville for about a year now so I had a few ideas of areas I'd like to be in, but Norm helped me determine if there were other places I might like, or if some of the places I did like actually weren't a good area to be in. I was also on a bit of a tight schedule and Norm was very helpful and willing to meet with me often so that we could look at a large number of houses in a matter of a couple of weeks. I never worked directly with Phyllis, but having them as a team allowed Norm to be freed up more often so that we could visit many houses in my rush to find something. Norm took his own notes at each house we visited and gave me his opinion of the condition of the house and if the floor plan was good, bad, awkward, etc... Typically my notes didn't differ from his much, but he often noticed something I hadn't seen or thought to check. The house my fiance and I ended up purchasing was actually one I had not found in the searches I had performed myself, but one that Norm found and recommended to us. The seller of this house was really motivated to sell, so when it came to negotiations I told Norm what my IDEAL price was and additional conditions (seller pays closing costs, repairs, etc). I was willing to deviate from this ideal price some but that was my "in a perfect world" price. Norm negotiated and got us the exact ideal price and terms I had told him! Excellent work.In the end my fiance and I were both very happy that we decided on Norm as our Realtor. He is a very easy to work with, extremely knowledgeable of the area, and certainly knows what kind of house is a good investment and a good purchase for your specific needs. ME

I have nothing but praise and gratitude for the MacDonald Home Team. We've been on a long journey to find a home, but the MacDonald Home Team agents were there every step of the way--despite several times where we couldn't make up our mind! It was a pleasure to work with them to say the least! - AM

Being a first time home buyer, I was nervous about the entire process. Not only did the MacDonald Home Team show me different options, they were able to check off every "box" that I had, and I was able to purchase a beautiful townhome. - JB

I give the MacDonald Home Team 5 star ratings across the board for the job they did helping me purchase a home for my son. Norm is one of the best agents I've ever used, and I see him, and the team, as a great asset to the company. I would use their services again if I am ever to buy or sell a home in the Greenville area. - MF

The MacDonald Home Team helped me with the purchase of my first home, and walked me through various steps of the buying process. A small snag occurred, and they were able to get me out of the contract, and into another one as quickly, and as easily as possible. - RF

I cannot write enough to express the degree of professionalism, attention, and personal assistance in the sale of my home provided by Norm and Phyllis of the MacDonald Home Team. My situation was very difficult related to a divorce and a very uncooperative ex partner. Norm went above and beyond what any real estate agent would be expected to do in order to get a good price for my home and sell it quickly. I only wish there was a Norm and Phyllis to help me purchase my next home in Colorado. -

The MacDonald Home Team were our buyers agents when we purchased our current home. They were knowledgeable about the area, worked well together as a team, and helped us find just what we were looking for. We enjoyed working with them so much, that they are now the listing agents for our former home. -

Excellent service from date of listing signing. Very supportive during difficult times and events. -

Honest & Professional. -

Helped me every step of the process. Very knowledgeable about Greenville and any legal and paperwork stuff. Handled setting up any appointments for me. -

Norm and Phyllis got us an offer on our parents' house on the first day of listing, because they knew who was looking within that neighborhood and who would appreciate our particular house. Then they guided us every step from contract through closing. They are very compassionate and professional. - RD
