In 2009 my family and I received military orders to a different state. We owned a home in our previous state and buying was to our gain in our new state. We tried to sell our previous home with several different real estate agents. We had no success. In 2011 we went with Andy Ackerman. We decided to do a short sale. Within a few months our family was down a mortgage and back on our financial track. Andy worked with us when we could not be present. He is flexible, professional, knowledgeable, and someone our family hopes to do business with again. I recommend him to anyone I know looking to buy or sell!

Id be delighted to use your services as well as recommend you to others.
Dear Andy, What a nice suprise it was to be called in to collect and unexpected check! Its wonderful to live in a world where there are people who have kind and unselfish hearts. Your gift inspires me to become more like that in my business. Thank you for the encouragement.

Just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate everything you done for us regarding the selling of our house. We found you very professional, knowledgeable, warm and friendly and an expert at “short sales.” We have already recommended to many others and will continue to recommend you.
Thank you again and continued success!

I chose Andy after talking to at least 6 other agents. He was the first one who gave me straight answers without all the "FLUFF" when we were considering putting the house on the market for sale. I loved working with Andy. He was just a call or text away if I had a question. I always got straight to the point, honest answers from him. He worked hard to sell our house quick! And a very nice guy too! Thanks Andy!
My name is Al Harris and I recently sold my home thanks to Mr. Ackerman. I had my home on the market for two years and went through 4 different real estate agents. Mr. Ackerman contacted me and ask me for one opportunity to sell my home. I was skeptical at first, but thought what did I have to lose. Mr. Ackerman had methods and knowledge that no other sales agent had. To start off he listed my home on a virtual tour, his private blog, and other tools I had never seen any other agent do. He provided more clients and actual showings from his wide client base. He also knew the right price point to sell the house. Andy also handled all the ins and outs with repairs and closing to speed up the closing. I recommend him to all my friends, family members, and people in general. I was truly impressed with this young man. Thanks again Al Harris
Professional, knowledgeable, and could not have asked for a better agent first time home buyer. He is very patient and made this an easy purchase process all the way thru the closing procedures
He is a very nice and professional agent. He spent two years to help us to look for houses without any stress. He provided lots of information to help us to purchase our new house. We are so lucky to have him as our agent. My family also regard him as our great friend.
Andy is great!! He answers the phone every time you call. He is very nice and knowledgeable. We were out of town clients and he work with our schedule every time we came to town. He has met contractors at our new home several times since we are five hours away. I highly recommend Andy to everyone I meet looking for an agent.
After trying a few different agents, we settled with Andrew after being referred to him by a friend. He was, in my mind, an ideal agent. He was completely on our side and did not pressure my wife and I about any home we viewed (and there were many). Andrew was very capable and knew almost every answer to our questions. What also impressed me was that he was not arrogant in any way and didn't try to hide what he didn't know. He had no problem re-doing offers or working with us with our mortgage banker to make sure we were able to do everything we needed. I am happy to refer friends and coworkers to him and have at every opportunity. Both my wife and I find it easy to give this review

Andy Ackerman was without question the best realtor we have ever dealt with. He always had time to talk and answer questions. He worked with enthusiasm and we had an offer on our house in less than two weeks. Andy also went the second mile when we had to make repairs required by the inspection by finding people to do the work and negotiated the best prices for us. Wow I could go on and on! Thank you, Andy! As I've said before-you're the Best

As a military member selling a house can be very stressful. Andy worked a short sale of my house even though I no longer lived in the area. He helped with everything and was very accommodating to my schedule and even managed to close on the house while I was deployed.He answered all of my questions and dealt with the bank on my behalf, I highly recommenced Andy to anyone considering a short sale in the Augusta area, especially military members.
Andy gave me every possible opportunity to see the homes I was interested in buying. Talked me through my "need to have" list. Sent me updates on available homes often. Tolerated my inquisitive and sometimes demanding Dad. My experience with finding the right home for me was incredible. I felt like I was Andy's priority at all times. Andy's experience helped me through all aspects of the home purchase. I have a friend for life. Thanks again Andy for being an absolute professional.
Andy was extremely helpful and professional. We were first time home buyers, and knew absolutely nothing about buying a house. We knew whoever we chose would pretty much have to hold our hand during the entire process. Andy did that for us. He was very honest about the houses we requested to see, and made a couple of suggestions for houses we didn't consider that were in our price range. Andy told us what to expect each step of that way. He always answered/returned our calls and email quickly and met us where-ever and when-ever we were available, plus drove us around to look at some of the properties. We're in a great house now. Andy is so great, I wouldn't only recommend him to anyone reading this review, I recommended him to my sister when she and her kids were moving here and now they're in their perfect home too!
Andy helped me through a Short Sale on my home beginning in March and finally getting it approved and sold Nov. 3rd. I had moved out of state and Andy took all the worries away from me. He was timely in notifying me when papers needed to be signed. He kept me informed and up to date. This sale was hard for me, but Andy made it a smooth transition. He is the best.
Andy is an excellent realtor, very knowledgable and explains the entirety of the process very clearly, every step of the way. His estimations of the market are right on target (at least in this case), and his negotiation skills really do help you get the best deal possible. If you're moving out of the area, if you're military and can't be there for the closing, or are otherwise in a tight spot, Andy is the right guy for that as well; he knows people that can get whatever job you need for your house done, quickly, cheaply, and professionally, getting everything set up for your house in your absence with minimal input from the seller (though if you have your people, that's entirely acceptable as well). Everything was taken care of perfectly and in the best possible way (within the limitations of the buyers). I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone needing to sell their house.
I have worked with a few realtors throughout our many moves due to job relocation. I have never worked with anyone as knowledgable, dedicated and personable as Andy! He was truly a blessing to our family! He was attentive and showed us home after home while never pushing us to close or settle on something that was not exactly what we wanted! Not only did he show us around the Augusta area but he also arranged and met with our contractor when we were not able to as we were out of state, as well as our home inspector and our lawyer! He even steered us away from neighborhoods that were less than desirable! He went above and beyond for us and made home hunting a fun experience! We were even welcomed into our home with a sweet and generous house warming gift! I absolutely recommend using his services whether you are moving from another area or are selling locally! Thanks to him, we found our dream home in Evans, GA at a great price!!
