Testimonials

Our business philosophy has been and will continue to be to do whatever it takes to provide the highest level of service to our clients before, during, and after the sale.

Lewis, and his staff, did a terrific job with our recent home purchase. He was very professional, timely and showed genuine concern with finding us the right fit. He was always available for our questions and made what could have been a very stressful process for my husband and I, much easier. He was also very helpful and involved with any questions we had after the sale. He exceeded our expectations, and I would, and have, recommended him to others looking for a new residence.

Let me begin by saying that buying my first home was very stressful for me. Jeanne suggested loan approval prior to looking at any properties. After looking at several places, I found the home I wanted to purchase. Jeanne walked me through the entire process step-by-step; from making the offer, home inspeciton and the counter offers making sure I got the very best deal possible. She took the time to explain the paperwork used during the closing and made sure I understood what I was signing. Jeanne made my home buying experience easier by being there each step of the way. I would recommend Jeanne to anyone looking to either buy or sell their home. She knows the real estate market and I will use her again when I sell my home.

Lewis White was the most knowledgeable realtor we interviewed before listing our mid- century modern home on Ivy Street. Lewis is very familiar with the Spartanburg market. He was very helpful in establishing our sale price and expectations. We are extremely happy we listed with Lewis. We had five showings within the first week. Lewis brought us an acceptable offer within a few days of our initial showings.
Lewis guided us through the contract, inspection stages, negotiation and a successful closing. Lewis was able to work with all parties to enable us to close on this sale and then close in Charleston on our new house the same day !
My wife and I highly recommend W Lewis White Company Inc.

Every step of the home buying process was handled professionally and with a tenacious attention to detail. If you are looking for a new home, or need to sell your home, Lewis and his team is your best choice!

I began working with Claude Saleeby several years ago. He was extremely patient with me, and when I decided that I was unable to sell my home at that time, he said he would be waiting when I was ready. We stayed in touch and watched the market in the Spartanburg area. When it came time to sell, I had no doubt who I was going to call, and it was Claude Saleeby. He welcomed me back like an old friend. He was very thorough in explaining everything I needed to know to get the most value out of my home. The home went on the market and sold very quickly. Throughout the process, Claude exhibited that same patience he had from the beginning. He has a calming presence that put my nerves at ease. The buyer came back with a small punch list of items that needed to be done, and Claude was able to assist in getting everything taken care of at a very reasonable cost. Claude has experience, knowledge and a gentle way about him that made the sale seem so easy. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a trustworthy Realtor, who will get the job done. My praises could go on, and I feel incredibly blessed to have had Claude to depend on. Look no further, Claude Saleeby is the best.

When making an important decision about buying or selling a home, it’s essential to make contact with an agent who has multiple talents and skills. There are far too many people in every field who look for a career with hopes of high income, easy hours, and social prominence. In real estate, especially, there are numerous agents whose concept of the profession is almost entirely a series of accompanying prospective buyers to properties, hoping for a sale and a commission check. They may have very limited knowledge of critical information -- quality of construction, costs of utilities and maintenance, history of the building, access to schools and businesses, and other relevant items. I selected Claude Saleeby as an agent to represent both the sale of my house, and the purchase of my new home, for several reasons: he has a long history of success in business, military, and community service; he approaches his work with intelligence and experience, and his goals have less to do with income than with making certain that decisions are consistent with the consumer’s needs, wants, and resources. He provides a detailed study of properties, based on much more than curb appeal and first impressions: he makes certain that he and the prospective buyer are informed about what’s “under the hood”….the often overlooked items that are significant in making a wise decision…the property taxes, the type and quality of heating and cooling systems, the condition of plumbing and electrical functions, the age and caliber of roofing, flooring, grounds, and past repairs. In my relationship with Claude, he often guided me AWAY from certain properties, based on his detailed research, rather than proceeding toward a sale that would have been a costly, unhappy mistake.
In selling my previous home, he made certain that the property was in excellent condition for a buyer, and he arranged for repairs and improvements to be done in a timely and professional manner. It was important to him that I, in purchasing my new home, and the buyer of my former home, were knowledgeable and pleased with our transactions. The final proceedings were the result of numerous visits, calls, inspections, and conversations on his part, and he does all of this with gentlemanly, courteous demeanor. I recommend him to all of my colleagues who express interest in buying or selling a property, since I know that they will be treated with great respect and will not be pressured or manipulated. In every case, they’ve called to thank me, and have been relieved and grateful that they were not faced with a barrage of calls or appointments or showings of houses that were clearly not consistent with their needs. His work is more of a mission than a job, and his success is based on his own drive to assist others in making honest, wise decisions on quality of life. He has earned implicit trust from all with whom he deals.

Lewis White has been invaluable over the last few years in exploring several options of reducing our household, eventually selling our house on Montgomery Circle. Whether it is advice of relocating into a smaller house or moving to a Retirement Community, his tireless efforts in finding an acceptable solution have been outstanding. Once our house went on the market, he found a very qualified buyer. His attention to details, his knowledge of legal procedures and his courtesy were second to none. Not only is Lewis White one of the most successful realtors, his integrity and friendship are the best.

The W. Lewis White Company is the definition of professionalism. If you are looking for Realtors you can trust and who have your best interest in mind, then look no further...

C. Daily - Spartanburg

Lewis was exceptional and I would highly recommend him to my friends and family! Lewis worked hard to get us in a “home” that was right for us and has also gone above and beyond to make us feel at home in Spartanburg. Lewis is professional, yet personable and exceeded our expections.

Jessica Hackney

I had a wonderful experience with Lewis and highly recommend him. My advice is to do as he recommends because he is a true professional and knows exactly what to do.

Jane Grimm - Spartanburg, SC

Jeanne was there for me the whole time. This was my first home buying experience and she made it so easy by keeping me in the circle and explaining the process so that there were no surprises.

Valarie - Spartanburg, SC

My wife and I "owned" a house in Spartanburg SC. After we moved to California we had initially rented the property. The tenants that occupied it became interested in purchasing it. Our concern was that we would get a fair price. The tenants employed the services of one Claude A. Saleeby at this realty agency. I also engaged his services as our agent to help ensure he was ethically obligated as a dual agent for our interests as well. Long story short everything went so smoothly we didn't even have to go to SC for the closing. Claude was a true professional during the entire process and we would use him again if the opportunity ever arrises. If you want a smooth purchasing or selling process use Claude.

Thanks again for the easiest, smoothest, and friendliest home sale transaction ever!

We worked with Jeanne Thompson in selling our current home and buying the home that we'd move to. The best decision we made in both situations was asking Jeanne for help. Her attention to details, coupled with her knowledge of the Upstate area and willingness to get to know our family's needs made the process of buying and selling as pleasant as possible. We were pretty inexperienced buyer/seller and Jeanne knew exactly how to help when we were unsure, uneasy and treading in waters unfamiliar. If we were going to buy or sell another home, we would without any hesitation ask Jeanne for her help. We would recommend her to anyone that is looking for assistance in the real estate market.

Paul - Spartanburg, SC

You bet I recommend Lewis White & Co...they sold my husband and me our first home here in Spartanburg on Fernbrook Circle...then the downsize home on Twin Drive. We could not say more great things about Lewis' service to his customers.

Jo-Ellen De Luca

We have used Jeanne on 3 of our home purchases, and will never use any other Realtor. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area, professional and never hesitates to humor any request - no matter how foolish it may sound. She listens to your wants and needs, doesn't push you towards one home or another, but, somehow, always seems to know what is right for yur family - even before you do. Her patience with us during all of our home buying experiences was incredible; our kids still rave about Miss Jeanne and always want to stop by and see her! She is a true gem and we send anyong looking to buy or sell a home in this area her way.

Allison - Inman, SC

I would definitely recommend Claude Saleeby of W. Lewis White Company. He helped us sell our parents' home in Spartanburg. Because we do not live in Spartanburg, Claude had to deal with many details and act on our behalf. He always stayed on top of the details, kept us informed, and went the extra mile to make our experience as smooth as possible.

Sue C. - Columbia, SC

Jeanne was very responsive to all of our questions, she responded in a short time to all my questions and worries. We were in a time crunch and she managed to get all the needed information to where it needed to be so we could close on time. Jeanne knows the market and all the aspects of buying a home.

Judy - Lyman, SC

We had the privilege of dealing with Mr. White from the time we were first looking for a rental prior to our move to Spartanburg to the time we sold the house that he found for us, approximately 2-3/4 years later. . . I don't know anyone in Spartanburg that understands the real estate market better than Lewis and and I don't know anyone that has a sincere and personal connection with more people in Spartanburg than Lewis. We enjoyed every minute of our relationship and would highly recommend him and his company's services to anyone.

M. Posey & S. Santana - Spartanburg

Lewis is the most knowledgeable and skilled realtor we have ever worked with. After a 1 hour meeting he ascertained the type of home we were looking for and presented excellent choices in a limited inventory market! We found the perfect home and he negotiated a good price. Then he made sure everything stayed on track for our closing date! I highly recommend Lewis for any real estate need!

Bill Hulette - Spartanburg, SC

Really enjoyed working with Lewis. Incredibly knowledgeable about market and neighborhoods, great insight on value for money. Best of all friendly, patient and thoughtful, even when we were very indecisive. Highly recommend Lewis for any real estate need.

Ricky Richardson

Within a two month span I worked with Lewis on selling a house and buying a house. On both occasions his professionalism and knowledge of the area was an obvious asset. With his contacts, we were able to sell our home quickly and with his direction we found our perfect new home. Thanks Lewis!

Kyle Boyles - Spartanburg, SC

Claude Saleeby was our realtor selling our home of 18 years at 1008 Oak Creek Drive in Spartanburg! Claude visited us in our home several months before we put our home on the market and helped us see what needed to be done to prepare our home for the real estate market. Claude did a wonderful job of helping us navigate putting a home that is filled with memories on the market. Claude helped us view our home through the eyes of a family looking to purchase a home and build their own memories in a special place. Claude's gentle insights into our home all proved to be true. Decorating a home to our tastes does not always sell a home. Thank you for your advice on that Claude.

Claude was also very courteous in scheduling showings. He would always give us plenty of advance notice and was more than willing to accommodate our schedules. Claude offered several times to open our home, turn on lights, and prepare our house for the showing.

Claude was at our closing continuing to make sure that the process ran smoothly and that we didn't have any questions or concerns. The reassure that his presence offered was very much appreciated!

Claude Saleeby was a pleasure to work with and so encouraging and upbeat in our process. I have and I will continue to recommend Claude Saleeby as a realtor!
