    Pat gave Ray 5 stars out of 5
    I moved to Palm Coast Florida and my sister and her husband recommended Ray and Maureen. I only had a few short days to look at homes and they were very attentive to show me the homes that would be of interest to me. I recognize their dedication and integrity so when I was ready to sell my home they were the first and only agents that I contacted. Ray took the lead and became my agent for selling my home. It is seldom an easy process when selling your home. Ray communicated to me the process and what I needed to do in order to sell my house. He was very calm and collected during some of the difficult transitions that transpired. He was attentive to my concerns and did his best to rectify any problems. I would have no qualms in recommending Ray as a agent to sell your home.

    Ralph & Diane gave Ray 5 stars out of 5
    Ray was our realtor when my wife, Diane and I relocated from Connecticut to Flagler/Volusia county. We sold our home in CT to our daughter and I accepted a job transfer to Daytona. We knew nothing of the area, however we did have a few specifics we were looking for. Some were "must haves" such as a fenced yard, easy commute, plenty of closet space, 1500+ square feet, etc. Others were "strongly desired" such as a pool, no carpeting, open floor plan, less than 15 minutes to the beach. We hoped to find all this and still be within our budget. Ray immediately went to work for us. At no point did he ever attempt to sell us less or more. His goal was to get us exactly what we were looking for, within the price range we determined. He was always accommodating and never pushy. Ray found us a very nice home in Palm Coast that checked off all of our needs and wants, at a price we could afford. He then went the extra mile, but assisting us in acclimating to our new environment, with general recommendations regarding utilities and local services. Again, these were recommendations. He advised but did not sell. His extensive knowledge of both Flagler and Volusia counties, coupled with a strong desire to understand and meet our needs, made for a very smooth relocation. From start to finish, we were completely satisfied with the process and our purchase. My wife and I very highly recommend Ray Hightower for anyone in need of a great local realtor.

    Ray assisted us in buying our dream Waterfront property. He made sure everything ran smoothly for us. He helped us find financing, negotiated an offer, and had required documents ready quickly. Closing went smoothly. I highly recommend Ray.

    Ray and Maureen were great to work with. I purchased one of their listings. I viewed one of their listings that didn't work out for me, then they told me about another one of their listings. It worked for me! We closed very quickly without any glitches. Thank you Ray!

    Ray was very patient and understanding. He provided prompt service and was always available on request. He worked hard to negotiate a fair and reasonable price.

    A Return to Normal? Real Estate in 2022.

    A Return to 'Normal'? The State of Real Estate in 2022  Last year was one for the real estate history books. The pandemic helped usher in a buying frenzy that caused home prices to soar nationwide by a record 19.9% between August 2020 and August 2021.1 However, there were signs in the fourth quarter that the red-hot housing market was beginning to simmer down. In the month of October, only 60.3% of sales involved a bidding war—down from a high of 74.5% in April.2 While this trend ...

    New Build or Existed Home? Which is Best for YOU?

    New Build or Existing Home: Which One Is Right for You?  Homebuyers today are facing a huge dilemma. There simply aren't enough homes for sale.1 Nationwide, there were 1.27 million active listings in September, down 13% from the previous year. According to the National Association of Realtors, that's about 2.4 months of inventory, which is far less than the six months that is generally needed to strike a healthy balance between supply and demand.2  Given the limited number of...
