“Well, tomorrow is my last day in a house I have loved but knew I had to leave for several years now. I cannot thank you enough for taking it on as one of your listings and for devoting yourself to marketing it and selling it in such a professional manner. Your attention to detail, your upbeat and encouraging comments, your sticking with it even when the going was tough was a wonder to behold and paid off in the end. Also, your very reasonable commission helped me make up my mind to have you as my agent. As I have told you many times ... you are the best. And, now we are on to a new chapter in our lives. We will miss the lake so, but we will enjoy many wonderful memories, one of the best being dealing with you in the selling of this wonderful house.”

"Yetty was our buyer's agent in the purchase of our first home in June 2012. At her core, Yetty is an advocate for her clients, and wants to see people find and live in a home they love. Yetty is held in high regard in all corners of Atlanta and is a gracious but excellent negotiator. Her extensive market knowledge and personal relationships with Atlanta’s most respected lenders, inspectors, insurance agents, etc. were instrumental in the process. She showed us the care, personal attention and concern of a family member, and her kind, calm demeanor was exceptionally valuable in what can be a confusing and often difficult process."

"I purchased a house two-years-ago in Bent Tree, Jasper,Georgia, and worked with Yetty Arp as my agent for the first time. She is the most knowledgeable and nicest agent that I have ever met. Last December, I purchased another house in Suwanee,and there was no doubt that I would ask Yetty Arp to be my agent again. All the appointments were set up perfectly. Everything went smooth by the closing, as well as the showings. I can only recommend her. I was very pleased with the professional performance she provided for me. I wish all the agent’s would be like Yetty Arp."

"I wanted to drop you a little note just to say thank you for selling my father’s house. As you know, it was a difficult decision for both myself and my sisters. Your understanding of our situation is at least as important to me as your skill in selling the home once our decision was made. It means a lot to me that you took the time to listen, exerting no pressure on us to put the house on the market.

That said, I want you to know how impressed I was with the speed and diligence you displayed in ascertaining market price, working your contacts and obtaining the original sale contract in a matter of just a few days once the decision to sell was made. Even more impressive, once the original contract fell through on the eve of closing (completely out of your control), I was astounded that within just a few hours, you had a new contract (for more money than the original!) and a contingent contract as a backup shortly thereafter, not to mention a $10,000 bonus in forfeited escrow funds! Effectively, you sold the house three times in no time!

I have sold a couple homes before, and I have to say that you made this sale easily the best experience of the lot. Contract modification requests … you were always right on top of them. Questions … answered quickly and accurately. All around … a better experience then I would have ever expected.

Again, thank you. Please feel free to use me as reference any time. I recognize and appreciate excellent service when I experience it, and I am happy to share with others who value the same. When next I find myself, my family or my friends in the real estate market, you will be the one I call."

"I was selling an investment property out of state and looking to do a 1031 tax exchange here in Atlanta. [We were] looking for an Intown condo that we could rent out, which turned out much harder than I thought given all the restrictions on leasing. At several points, I almost gave up but Yetty would send me some new ideas almost every night. Clearly, she wasn’t giving up. And then she found an already leased unit not yet on the market which was absolutely perfect. I closed this week and couldn’t be happier. She is a tremendously hard working and a creative gem!"

- Lawrence Schall, President of Oglethorpe University
"You were/are by far more than an agent to me. You helped me buy and sell two residences in the most professional, pleasant way. You always had/have my very best interest at heart. I so appreciated your advice and certainly your patience; I have made a lifelong friend in you. You certainly were brought into my life for a reason. I am honored to have worked with you ... always a smile and always a positive attitude. You are a very special woman that I have luckily become very close with. With love and great gratitude ..."

"Yetty Arp is a truly outstanding REALTOR®. My husband and I were moving back to Atlanta after many years in New York, and we had a nearly impossible list of criteria for our new home search. Yetty worked tirelessly until we found an exact match. I have known Yetty for years and knew she would do well by us, but she exceeded even my highest expectations. Thanks to Yetty, we are now living in our dream home and the process was smooth and pleasant from start to finish. Yetty goes above and beyond and has earned herself a fantastic reputation as one of the best real estate agents in Atlanta. Yetty is professional, conscientious, incredibly smart and truly cares about her clients best interests. She wowed us every step of the way.

She held our hands throughout the entire process, and we felt so comfortable knowing that she always had our best interest at heart. Yetty was never pushy or aggressive. She genuinely wanted what was best for our family, and we were very appreciative of her low-key and discreet approach. Despite being relaxed about the process, Yetty is one of the hardest working people I have ever met. She was determined to help us find the perfect home and worked tirelessly to make that happen - even touring homes for an entire day with a broken rib!

Yetty was also extremely professional and handled every aspect of our search, contract negotiation and purchase process with care and dogged determination. I knew that I did not have to worry about any surprises because Yetty was on top of every last detail. She has an impressive knowledge and expertise in the Atlanta real estate market, masterful negotiating skills and we felt lucky to have her as our representative.

Not only is Yetty an incredibly competent and successful agent, but she is a wonderful person and a pleasure to work with. She actually made our home search enjoyable, and we loved getting to spend time with her in the process. She has sterling character, values and judgment, and I have the utmost respect for her as a person.

I would highly recommend Yetty Arp to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. She is the classiest and most dependable person you could have on your team. You could not be in better hands."

“If you are looking for a real estate agent who communicates thoroughly, is methodical, organized and analytical, possesses detailed market insight, can tactfully and calmly handle potentially volatile discussions, then you should consider Yetty Arp as your representative and advocate. She successfully guided us through a difficult residential purchase under stressful and unusual conditions. In very short order, she was able to develop, categorize, evaluate and concisely present essential property information that went well beyond and was far more discerning than the basic seller disclosures. I am a licensed attorney and real estate broker and my wife is a licensed real estate agent. Our expectations are high and our standards are demanding. Placing our trust in Yetty to provide solid market information and analysis together with unbiased and independent advice, was a satisfying and rewarding decision. Yetty’s knowledge, tenacity and expertise were not only impressive but the primary reason for a successful transaction. Thank you, Yetty.”

"Over a 22-year period, Mrs. Arp has handled a number of minor and major property purchases and sales for me. Her knowledge and experience in her field are beyond compare. I thank and recommend this rare REALTOR® who works with a level of integrity we all demand. Those of us who wish to buy or sell property always hope to find someone of her caliber. The keyword is trust, which is a feeling we all hope to discover in any relationship. I consider myself lucky to be one of her many satisfied clients. While conscientious and thorough, Mrs. Arp sets a pace and example that many envy. From my experience, I can tell you that Yetty Arp possesses the most admirable traits, and she has never let me down. Absolute satisfaction of her clients is her main goal. I highly recommend her for your property needs.”

“We do not know a better way to say it. Yetty Arp, is our REALTOR® for life. By that, we mean for any real estate needs we may have, buying or selling, in the Atlanta and northeast Georgia area (wherever she is willing to go) in the future, Yetty will be the one we call. We have had the chance to work with numerous REALTORS® in our lives and she is the best we have ever known.
Most recently we have been trying to sell a house on Lake Rabun. It had been on the market for at least two and a half years. We were surprised to later learn just how many people had no idea it had been up for sale. Yetty put together a plan for marketing the house to more potential buyers in our price range based on realistic market prices that worked perfectly. Her brochures, email announcements and video marketing tools were fabulous. The drone videos were particularly captivating.
She had the patience and ability to make us understand some realities that made sense to get the deal done. In short, within a few months she found a buyer. She was able to show him what a special home he was purchasing. The buyer and seller were both happy that Yetty got involved. She did a great job getting the word out about the availability of our house which in turn produced more walkthroughs in a few months by qualified buyers than we had had for over two years before she came on board. We cannot express our gratitude enough. She worked a miracle for us. Again, Yetty is our REALTOR® for life.”

Yetty is the most amazing realtor. She listened to our need and accomplished them beyond every expectation we had set out for our home. She sold our house in less than a week! I would recommend her for any seller and for especially any seller!

It has been just over a year since I purchased my townhome, and even today I am extremely happy about the choices I made including the pricing, location and the type of unit I selected. Most, if not all, of the credit goes to my agent, Yetty Arp. I must admit that I was hesitant to even work with an agent and thought I could do it alone. My reluctances had a lot of do with my previous experiences. I had worked with agents who wanted you to make a purchase after only taking you out once or maybe twice. They were simply there to make their commission and move on to the next potential buyer. Well, Yetty Arp was totally different than any one I had ever worked with in the real estate profession. She brought her whole self to the table. She was compassionate and most of all educated about the business of real estate. What I liked the most was that she never tried to persuade me to do something that was not in my best interest. If you want someone who has great negotiation skills and knowledgeable about the business, you should select Yetty Arp as your next agent. Yetty, you are the best! Thank you for making my experience as seamless as possible.

“ We greatly enjoyed working with Yetty and appreciated her guidance through the process. She was always responsive to our needs and helped us by making sure our interests were always served. In a short period of time, she gained our confidence as an honest person you could count on. We would happily recommend Yetty to anyone that needs a great full service realtor.”
