Excellent and very easy to work with! No stress, no duress, easy peasy! Move as fast as you choose to! A+ service!
After years of continually giving money to the state of Illinois, I finally decided that I wanted out. Working in Missouri and paying Illinois to do so got to be a big pain! Angel and Jeff were absolutely wonderful to work with! Very fast but not too fast, they completely worked around my schedule and my pace. This girl highly recommends Starting Point!
Due to a death in the family we inherited a house. On inspection, we realized that it required a significant investment to bring it up to market standards/market price. This would require a lot of time and work, so we investigated companies that buy houses ‘as is’. Four such companies were invited to tour the property. Brent Hough represented Starting Point Real Estate, and he was very nice to work with. He took notes and pictures and sent us an offer within one day. The offers that we received had a wide range from low to high. It was easy to narrow the field to two companies for serious consideration. Starting Point’s offer was reasonable after considering the average market prices of homes in the area and the investment needed as well as the real estate commission we’d have to pay for a sale. We also considered the amount of cash outlay needed just to keep a house running during renovation if we did the work (all utilities, real estate taxes, mortgage expense, etc). It just made sense! Jeff Garner (CEO) stopped by for an inspection and was also a pleasant person to work with. Starting Point wanted the house right away but allowed us some time to conduct an estate sale then pack up the unsold items for donation to charity. Angel Bradley was the prime contact point to handle sale details. She did such a great job that I promoted her to chief operating officer (did you get that Jeff?). All told, Starting Point staff made the entire process very easy on us during a difficult time for the family. I strongly recommend them to anyone who has a home to sell. Joe McCarthy December, 2017
My experience with Starting Point Real Estate, LLC couldn’t have been more perfect. I was under strict time constraints, we negotiated a fair selling price and closed in 30 days. The staff were all professional, friendly and accommodating. The heard of elephants had been lifted off my shoulders and I am very grateful. I would absolutely recommend this company.
Jeff, Thank you so much for helping me preserve my home! I don’t have words to fully express what you did for me.
I will tell everyone I know about your company. A simple thank you is the most powerful sentiment. Thank you!
If your looking to sell your house call Jeff at Starting Point Real Estate He showed up with Brent looked at the house and in 20 minutes he had seen what he wanted and said he would get back with me the next day. He made me a fair offer as I had Other bids which were ridiculous ,signed a contract and closed within 17 days only because I was in Florida, days after we signed the contract. Are we would of closed sooner. Angel in the office made it so easy, to deal with the paper work while I was out of town It couldn’t of went much smoother. Thanks to Jeff, Brett, and Angel
“I am a completely satisfied customer and thank Starting Point for buying my house! My goal was to downsize by selling my house at a reasonable price without a hassle. This was achieved with the help of Starting Point.
I found the company to be honorable, fair, and respectful. I especially appreciate Brent and Angel for sheperding the sale from contract through closing. They stayed in close contact with me and answered my questions and concerns promptly. I found them to be very professional and courteous. I will be recommending Startinrg Point to my senior friends.”
“Being in the mortgage business I know how complicated home transactions can be and that is why I have been so impressed with the way Starting Point Home Solutions does business. I have seen them solve some of the most difficult real estate problems that other investors and real estate professionals would not touch. They are extremely professional and most importantly do what they promise. If you are looking to sell or buy a home I would deal with them first!”
"Starting Point home Solutions was truly heaven sent for us. We came on hard times quite unexpectedly and had to make a very difficult decision regarding our financial future and we were forced to Short Sale our home and Jeff made this decision and process very comforting for us. He was there every step of the way and answered all my questions and eased each concern throughout the entire process. He couldn’t guarantee how long the process would take but assured me he would do what he could to make it as quick and painless as possible.
As with any Real Estate process there were bumps in the road but Jeff handled them quite well and did what he needed to keep me as stress-free as possible and get the job done in a quicker time frame than initially anticipated.
We would, and already have, recommended Starting Point Home Solutions to anyone for their Real Estate needs whether it be selling or buying a home or for those unfortunate cases where a Short Sale is necessary. Starting Point Home Solutions was there for us and we will always be grateful to them."

"Thank you so much for the great job your company did handling the short sale of our condo. You and your staff, especially Jill, were very helpful in guiding us through this confusing and scary process. You knew who to contact with Bank of America and how to get the short sale through. You were professional and treated us with respect and not like we were just a loan number. We, like so many others, have been affected by these crazy economic times and weren’t sure who to trust to help us. Thanks to you , we just moved into our new home, our credit score is already recovering and we look forward to a bright future."
Thank you, Kyle, Ashleigh, Paityn & Evynn Grubb
"I wanted to thank you for all you did for us with the sale of our home. You were a “god” send in a very stressful time. We appreciate your kindness to us."
Thank you Cheryl & Bruce, O’Fallon, MO 63368
"Just a few months ago, I was struggling with a situation that looked to have very little end in sight. I had recently divorced, lost half of my household income and had exhausted what little savings I had left after my marriage ended. I had a home that was pending foreclosure and I was mastering a juggling act of “robbing Peter to pay Paul” from one month to another just trying to make ends meet. I was working with my mortgage lender to try to qualify for one of many of the advertised programs designed to help Americans “in my situation” and was on my 7th (yes, I said seventh) application. I’d already been denied for Obama’s “Making Homes Affordable” plan three times and several of my Lender’s internal programs, yet they wanted another application from me. It seemed an endless cycle of filling out the same paperwork and getting nowhere but deeper in debt.
It was around that time, and as I was sifting through the mound of “junk” mail that someone in my predicament starts to receive on a daily basis, I decided to reach out to one that promised a “Fresh Start”…..STARTING POINT HOME SOLUTIONS.
I called them, explained my situation and Tonya was on my doorstep that afternoon to help! Let me say to anyone in my situation now….I didn’t have to worry about anything else from that moment on. She and her counterpart, Patty (who was the liaison with my lender), worked on my behalf to stop foreclosure proceedings immediately. They counseled me on my mortgage situation and helped positively position me into a short sale with my lender. I was able to work with them via email and phone and with very little inconvenience to my schedule.
Not only were they able to negotiate my Lender into forgiving the deficiency that I owed on my mortgage, I received an outreach incentive from my Lender in the amount of $20,000.00 when it was all said and done! The entire process took only a few short months! Today, I am nearly debt fee and because of Starting Point Home Solutions, I am able to consider that “fresh start” they promised me a few months ago in the mail.
THANK YOU Garner Realty and Starting Point Home Solutions"
