Camila,

Please forgive me for taking so long to get back to you, but here we go.

The story I am about to share with you is one of God, our faith in God. A story of how, if you will allow Him to, God will bring very special people into your lives in he worst of time, especially when you least expect it. Such is the story of Camila Litton and Gulf State Home Buyers.

Our home of 34 years burned on April 11, 2018. A few days later I was contacted by phone by this cheery little voice on the other end of the line introducing herself as Camila Litton. She wanted to know if we would consider selling what was once our home, no matter what the condition. At the time, I was not sure what we were going to do with the house and shared that with Camila. But she was more than welcome to make me an offer if she wanted to. So, we agreed on a meeting time. The morning Camila was to meet me at the house she was punctual and on time. Being in sales most of my working career, punctuality has always been a good measuring tool as to how sincere someone is about what they are doing. After arriving at the house, we visited for a few minutes as I shared my story as to what had happened to our home and how devastated we were by not only the loss of our home but the loss of so many precious memories. Camila expressed her very compassionate and sincere sympathy regarding our home and our loss. As she examined the house it was evident that she was more than a little overwhelmed by our personal loss not to mention the financial loss. After Camila completed her inspection of the condition of the house and how devastated we must be. She thanked me for my time, again expressing her sympathy for our loss, saying that she would keep me and my family in her prayers and that she would get back to me with formal offer in a day or so. Within 48 hours Camila emailed me an offer. I immediately called her, expressing my appreciation for her prayers and her generous offer and shared with Camila that we still had not decided what we were going to do but, either way, I would get back to her when we made a decision. Several days went by and I received a call from Camila wanting to know how “we” were do? Never once asking if we had made any decisions as to what our intentions were with the house, but to reassure me that me and my family were in her prayers daily. This continued for over a month. Never once did she ask the obvious question, although somewhere in the conversation I would usually share with her where we were in the decision-making process and where we were with the insurance company. I don’t recall exactly when it was that we finally decided we just couldn’t bear the thought of going through the process of rebuilding the house we called our home for so many years and were going to sell it. But when we did, decide I contacted Camila, sharing with her our decision to sell and asking her if the offer was still good, it was so I told her to draw up the papers that we had decided to sell the house to Gulf State Home Buyers (GSHB) as soon as we settled with the insurance company. In the months prior to finally deciding what we were going to do I had several other offers on the house, none of which would I consider strictly because of the sincere concern Camila showed for me and my family. The best I recall this was sometime in late June or early July. However, it was the week before Christmas, 2018 before we finally settled with the insurance company over the contents portion of the claim. The battle we had with the insurance company over the contents in the house was a nightmare I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy. However, in the five or so months that went by between verbally committing to sell to GSHB and actually being able to do so Camila rarely ever missed a week without calling, texting or emailing me to let me know she was still praying for us and to see how we were doing. Never once did Camila ever try to pressure me into closing on the house. Camila was extremely helpful, helpful to the point that when I mentioned I was having trouble recruiting help to remove the salvageable contents from the house, she volunteered to and did send a couple of her own construction crew over to spend the day helping me load and unload two trailer loads of contents in the storage facility we had donated to us. By the time we were finally able to close on the house our relationship grown to one of true friendship rather than a relationship of buyer-seller.

I/we look forward to maintaining our friendship with Camila through the coming years. A friendship that God created and will maintain if we will continue to pray for and care for each other. My family and I will continue to keep Camila, her family and Gulf State Home Buyers continually in our prayers.

Blessings,

Ronnie Foster

I was 73 when Harvey hit and I didn’t’ have the energy like I used to have considering there was a time that I thought I was going to rebuild. I couldn’t get help from FEMA and I didn’t have insurance; no one seemed to want to help me. Lauren called at just the right time and she came out and made me an offer. The BBB rating was the main turning point for my decision. I was hesitant doing business with people just off the street and this made that decision a piece of cake. Lauren didn’t rush me and I needed the ability to take the time to clean the home and she worked with me on this. During the process she was always there and she called me to check on me too! I always have trouble with my computer and printer and she even helped me with those things and I know that is something that other people probably wouldn’t have done. I am very satisfied with the process and I would highly recommend this company to anyone else looking to sell a house. Lauren did a great job working with me and understood my situation and for that I am grateful.

“I think my most memorable part of the experience was how at ease I felt with the company representative and also, the speed it took to complete the sale. I was impressed by the friendly and comfortable manner of the representative of the company. He made me feel at ease and I felt he was trustworthy and wanted to give me a fair offer. Any concerns or questions I had were quickly addressed and resolved. If I had to leave a message, the specialist returned the call in a very short period of time. I appreciated the fact that this was a local company, with an office where all the employees were located, and I could contact them if I needed to. There was quick communication from the time I called for an offer to the signing. I felt the specialist was truly genuine in trying to make the best offer for both of us.”

We could not go into our house after the flood because of the smells and my illness.  We needed to get rid of the house and had moved out 3 ½ years prior to selling and after the hurricane came, there was just no reason to keep the house any longer.  We received a phone call asking us if we were interested in selling. Gulf States offer was the best offer and we felt like it was above and beyond. We knew we had some things we needed to take care of and we liked that you worked on our timeline.  Everyone that we have met with Gulf State has been very courteous and pleasant to deal with. Three words that come to mind when we think of this process and the people is honest, forthright, and equitable. We would absolutely recommend this company to anyone looking to sell with no reservations.

This process of selling my house was easy and very quick. It was convenient with the closing and signing. The people with Gulf States are very friendly and professional. I feel like I got a very fair price for my property. I had not sold in the past because I didn’t think I was going to get very much for it.

Gulf State Homebuyers did a great job. It is a very through company. I enjoyed working with them very much, it was a fast and easy process. It went very smooth and I would recommend this company to anyone.

After we made the phone call, it was very smooth and quick. The response time was so fast and we had another company that was supposed to come out and they couldn’t work on our time frame. They promised us an offer on the spot and that was something other people wouldn’t do.

…They are simply the best in the business for a reason!

We called the other buyer right after and told them not to come out because we were happy with the offer we got. We were so happy that the closing was so close to home at their office! We felt no pressure and we love that they worked with us on getting our stuff out too. All around a great experience.

I was nervous that these kinds of companies were going to low ball me and that was not the case here. One of the reasons I selected Gulf State was the phone calls the follow-up was extremely accurate and Camila was always in contact.

Matter of fact… I have someone that I’ll be sending their way next week and the best part is I’m going to get a referral fee.

There is nothing better than doing business with someone who you know cares.  These guys will always be like family to us for what they did.

“The day I decided to sell my house I went straight to Gulf State Homebuyers. Camila had been trying to reach me for over a year and I was finally ready. Since she was the one who followed up with me for so long, it was a no brainer to go to use her. She was very patient with me. They were very polite and helped you understand everything every step of the way. They don’t push you to take an offer. I would highly recommend Gulf State Homebuyers to anyone who is thinking of selling their home.“
