"After listing with a previous agent who worked hard but just was not able to sell our home, we were determined to choose one we felt would best understand our needs. We met with Dayton and decided he was the right fit for us. Shortly after that a stager and photographer came out to the home and did a fantastic job. Everything looked great. The evening after the listing went live, we had two people who signed up to view the property the next day. Both put bids in on the home. We had two more families come through two days later and one more bid came through. Ashlee Droemer walked us through the process from start to finish and we are very thankful to her and the whole team in getting our home sold. I would definitely recommend the Schrader Group for anyone who is wishing to sell their home."Lisa Buendicho
"I was able to get 20K over asking and with all the recommendations made we even were able to appraise. I would highly recommend the Schrader Group to anyone.
Pure Excellence! The Schrader Group just knows what is required to sell a home. They did not just do a good job they did a superior job from all other realtors I have worked with in the past. #Next Level
Mr. Schrader is the type of realtor that will tell you how the market is and wont steer you away from the facts. This is the first time I actually feel confident I made the right decision on selecting the right person to get me to the finish line with selling a home in a unique area.
He and his team salvaged a broken situation after Zillow Offers dropped us with the fiasco decision that they would shut down operations. # Dont Trust an iBuyer. This flipped our life completely upside down as we were building a home when they notifed us a few days before thanksgiving that they were dropping our contract.
However, we contacted Mr. Schrader and he gave us hope and layed out the reality of what to expect in this market. We definitely placed our trust with him and his team and they came through. After meeting with him and his team they were able to recommend updates to the home and we executed on making the changes within 45 days before listing. He even negotiated with the Builder on our behalf to give us the time to prepare the home for listing.
Even though it was extremely challenging and emotional on completing all the projects we followed all recommendations his team gave to us. When we listed the home we had an offer within 48 hours and we accepted within 96 hours. I would recommend this Realtor if you are buying or selling in San Antonio, TX above all realtors. This is just a phenomenal team.
Process to sell:
Step 1: Mr Schrader comes out to your home with a market anaylsis and lays out the facts of all the sales in the area.
Step 2: Mr. Schrader made some initial recommendations for repairs.
Step 3: We signed the listing agreement.
Step 4: His team reached out to us to coordinate timelines, schedules, Stager, Professional Photographs and Listing Agent.
Step 5: Stager comes to home after repairs were made and makes recommendations on how to set furniture and lighting.
Step 6: Final preparation before Professional Photography was conducted and sign was left to post the day before listing.
Step 7: MLS Draft was made and sent over for review before listing. Final details were coordinated prior to going live.
Step 8: Sale sign posted and home went live on MLS and we recieved multiple schedule view request appointments within 24 hours.
Step 9: Offer made within 48 hours and we accepted offer within 96 hours.
Step 10: Contract was drafed and signed by both buyer and seller.
Step 11: Finalize Appraisal, Inspections Walk Through and Close on the home.
Note: If you are getting in the market to sell be prepared to recieve multiple offers and go back and forth between buyers as it is taxing. However, this team will not steer you wrong.
Great Job Schrader Group! I will return for future business."
"The Schrader Group made our dream happen."
"The Schrader Group handled all aspects of selling our home and did so with the utmost professionalism and expertise! Our home sold immediately, and all aspects of the sale were handled with great care and concern for us as sellers. Monica Vasquez was our constant contact and addressed each and every question, concern, or comment with grace, friendliness, and knowledge built on years of experience; she was absolutely indispensable! I am very detailed, meticulous, and OCD...and Monica rose to the challenge of ensuring my very lofty expectations were not only met but EXCEEDED! With every phone, e-mail, or in-person encounter, Monica was an absolute ray of sunshine! Several benefits included in having the Schrader Group list my home were: a home stager to consult on ensuring my home looked it's very best, a professional photographer that captured my home beautifully, flyers for prospective buyers to take with them after viewing, and a move-up credit that was applied to the closing cost of our new home. These benefits were worth LITERALLY thousands of dollars! If you are looking for a Realtor that can make the home buying and/or selling experience as stress-free and easy as possible, I highly recommend the Schrader Group! Put your trust and your investment in the Schrader Group's capable hands and you will not be disappointed!"Michelle Salazar
"Aprille Sowder definitely went above and beyond her job. 5 stars really isn’t enough to give to her. We found Aprille online just like the way we search for good restaurants on yelp. Aprille was ranked number 1 with all the good positive reviews. But unlike yelp could be unreliable at times, Aprille’s excellence is really solid and consistent. As first-time home sellers, we really couldn’t be happier that we found Aprille. Following are the things that I think Aprille has been consistently exceeded: 1. Expertise-we all know that the quickest way to know a person’s level of knowledge is by asking tons of questions (I didn’t do it on purpose. It’s just what first home buyers/seller do and me being myself). I couldn’t recall the specific questions that I’ve asked Aprille, but I was very impressed every time when I got the response from Aprille. Her expertise and timely response makes her really reliable. 2. Timely communication – Aprille has so many clients at hands but I was amazed by how she was still able to respond to my emails and phone calls in a very timely manner. It’s not just about the deliver on time; it’s the accuracy of her response and the knowledge she has that really makes the whole home buying/selling process smooth. We highly recommend Aprille Sowder to all our reference buyers, sellers and friends."Hector Flores
"Someone was always available to answer any of our questions. We would recommend The Schrader Group to anyone."
"Our first contact with the Schrader was August/September 2019. Our first Point of Contact was with Raul Jimenez. Recalling our first conversation, Raul was extremely courteous and respectful. What we most liked about Raul was his honesty, his directness, and his positive energy! We had rather low expectations from the beginning on selling our home due to our observation of the marketing history for the area we lived. But the team of Raul, Aprille and Valerie, contributed to a very smooth process flow from the beginning to the sell; even, thru to closing!
Raul was available each and every time we needed to communicate, whether it was a question, a concern, or just to cathart! He seems to be a good listener as well, which is a "must have" quality! Raul is/was with us (my wife and I) throughout this entire sell/buy process and he's still committed to results orientation to the end; even, long after we are in our new home, Raul will be there for us! This is the kind of Realtor who exemplifies "Customer Service Orientation and who is "Results Oriented". The entire process from the first meeting to the closing of the home we sold was simple and straight to the point! There was no hassles, no confusion, and Raul fought hard for our goals, not his! If and when you're looking for a great team, not a good team, please select the "The Schrader Group" and select "Raul" as your Realtor! The end experience will yield outstanding "Results Orientation" in your expectations! KUDOS to Raul Jimenez. And, KUDOS to Aprille, and Valerie. The Smith Family Thanks you now and moving forward!"
"If I ever have to move to another home, or help a family member find their perfect residence, I am going to call Schrader. The entire team is friendly, caring and patient with hysterical homeowners and home seekers. The staff responds quickly to every situation, and constantly checks in to make sure the home buying/selling experience goes smoothly and efficiently. When you deal with Schrader, you are never left in the dark as to what is happening and why. Schrader's professional stagers and photographers present your home in a manner that quickly garners interest from prospective buyers. My home sold in 5 days. After my listing went public, the buyer was on site and touring the house within 24 hrs. Schrader will be involved with the purchase of my new home, which I am certain will be another positive experience."Dianne Zincke
"I would definitely recommend The Schrader Group to anyone needing to buy or sell a home."
"Home was on the market a week and a half."
"Working with Julie and Raul was a wonderful experience. Since we first met I could sense their level of professionalism and experience. My wife and I always felt that we were being guided by experts making the process extremely smooth. We relied on their experience to set the best date to go live and the asking price. They gather the information of the best offers and, based on their recommendations, the best decision was made.
We are very happy with the results and the whole experience. We certainly would highly recommend them to our friends. Great job!!!"
"Thank you Dayton......and thanks to Monica and the entire Schrader Group. Dayton sold a home for us previously so we already had very high expectations when we listed another home with him. Once again they delivered a high quality experience at every stage of this process culminating with a perfect closing. Dayton is a gentleman and a consummate real estate professional. We confidently recommend the Schrader Group for your real estate needs!"JimBauer
"We listed on a Friday and had an offer by Sunday, and from there it all went pretty quickly and smoothly."
"Bruce was always very professional. I'm a first time buyer/owner and he helped me with my decision in choosing my house. He pointed out the pros & cons of all the houses I went to look at. Bruce was very patient with me and made my search easy all the time."Mary Ramirez
