Their experience helped us to price our property reasonable, knowing what the market in our area could bear. Regional Realty has a solid rapport with the contractors, inspectors, and appraisers that are vital to make a real estate transaction happen in a timely fashion.

“Regional Realty, particularly Uriah Wilkinson, was recommended by a friend in the mortgage business. When we met with Uriah, he didn’t try to sugar coat what to expect from him. He laid out his course of action for our property and went right to work. Within 2 weeks, he came to us with an offer. After several days of “back and forth” negotiations, we were able to settle on a price. Bottom line is: Uriah did exactly what he told us he would do and we got our house sold. Something the “other” realtor couldn’t get done in 7 months. I would highly recommend Regional Realty and in particular Uriah Wilkinson when it is time to sell your home. He got the job done for us.”

- Gerald & Peggy

“I was very happy with the service we received from Regional Realty. Wendy came out to meet us, right away to sell my mom’s house. She was very friendly and very willing to adapt to the price I wanted for my mom’s house. I like the website: showing time that was set up, I was asked what was a convenient time and needed to confirm. All of Wendy’s information was there for me to use. I know in the future, I will tell other people to use Regional Realty and when I get ready to sell my house, I will have Wendy sell it! Thank you Wendy so much! We had many different problems to deal with, and you made it so much easier!”

I will gladly recommend her and Regional Realty to anyone looking for a new home or recreational property in the area that she covers.”

- Wayne


“We chose Terri of Regional Realty because we thought a local agent could sell our cabin sooner than an agent closer to the cities. It did take a while to sell during these economic times, but once we had an offer, Terri’s professionalism, experience, and skills got that offer converted to a sale. To do that, Terri scheduled all inspections and then arranged for the services and repairs that needed to be done in short order. While my husband and I (both teachers) were at our jobs, Terri (and the RR staff!) was taking care of everything. The closing went without a hitch and we were well-informed of what we had to prepare for the closing. Throughout the process Terri demonstrated her experience and knowledge of real estate and of technology to expedite all of it. We will definitely use Regional Realty again.”

- J & S

“Our experience having Wendy Lyytinen and Regional Realty as our Realtor has been a joy above and beyond any previous experience we have had. She was available to us even during the holidays which meant going “above and beyond.”  There was never any pressure on us to hurry and make a decision, always stating she wanted us “find the home that would be perfect for us.” We had specific requirements as to what we needed which included a price category we could not – would not waver on and the knowledge that God had the house waiting for us.  She kept looking, and when we found it, she helped us to “jump on it. “ My husband and I highly recommend Wendy and her staff without reservation.”

- S & G C


“Thank you so much for everything! You were so easy to work with. Your communication was great, even after regular work hours, you always returned my call/text. This year’s spring market (2017) was very challenging, yet our expectations were met perfectly! We could not be happier with our new house. We’ve moved in ahead of schedule, 34 day closing, and many thanks to you for making that happen. I’m very grateful for everything you’ve done for us to make this happen. Thank you so much.  Terri, Laura, Wendy & Regional Realty. We Love Our New House! “

“We are very happy with Uriah Wilkinson and Regional Realty selling our side by side duplex. He was very good about explaining the process and what he needed from us. He helped establish a selling price which was higher than we expected. He talked to our tenants and made them feel comfortable about the sale. He found a buyer quickly and walked us through the closing process. Everything went smoothly and we are happy we chose Uriah and Regional Realty.”

“Uriah Wilkinson of Regional Realty was easy to work with, yet very professional in representing our interest in two property sales in November 2016.

“Regional Realty made our dream come true! 2017 was a Seller’s Market and our agent was knowledgeable and moved quickly to keep us informed and viewing houses with exactly what we were looking for. When we got frustrated with the quickly moving houses, our agent was always positive and upbeat – letting us know we weren’t doing in alone and our dream home was out there… and it was!”
