"Beth Wilder has acted as my real estate agent in two transactions: one as a buyer’s agent and one selling my home. In both cases she has gone above and beyond to help me. I have appreciated her wise council on numerous occasions. At all times she is a consummate professional, has deep knowledge of the area and a great resource for vendors and contractors. But most of all I have had great trust in Beth to faithfully represent my interests at all times." - Robert W.

"We had an awesome experience selling our home with United Country - Respess Real Estate with Ricky Clayton as our agent. Ricky was professional, personable, and knowledgeable throughout the entire process, which took so much stress off of us as first-time home sellers. He kept us updated on all progress while we moved across the country, which gave us peace of mind that our home sale was in good hands. We would recommend Ricky and United Country - Respess Real Estate to anyone - and especially to someone looking to buy or sell in rural areas, which requires more than just traditional real estate knowledge. Thank you again, Ricky!" - Allie W.

"We have worked with Beth at United Country - Respess Real Estate through three house purchases and 1 house sale and each experience has been amazing. We are picky buyers who can make it difficult to match us to the right place. When we first started our search, from Colorado, she worked with us remotely and helped us with all the local details were where not familiar with. Introducing us to the community, suggesting restaurants, and recommending activities for our kids. When we need Real Estate direction next time, we will certainly be back." - Ronnie G.
