My company used Hunter Brant and Live Water Southern to help us sell a piece of property we’d had on the market for a number of years. Within a few weeks, we had a number of offers and were able to close on the property during a period of incredible economic uncertainty. I am positive that without Hunter’s diligence in sourcing offers, we would not have closed this deal. Many thanks to him and Live Water Properties.
“I began working with Hunter as I contacted him regarding a nice gentlemen’s farm that he was the listing agent on in North Florida. Although after visiting the property it wasn’t a fit for me, I had such a good experience with Hunter I decided to utilize him to list my smaller tract of property in North FL, that I wished to sell, as well as have him assist me in finding my future property. In 6 short months he sold my property for 94% of the asking price. One month later he assisted me in closing on a new tract in Southern GA. I had been looking on and off for over a year for the perfect next tract, but it was through his help that I found it…”
