Mac Scheidegger was recommended to us by colleagues at the schools at which we work. Using Step Realty was the best decision we made with regard our move. Mac explained every step of the process and answered all of our questions, he was available whenever we needed him, and he sold our home more quickly that we could ever have imagined. We would give Mac our highest recommendation to anyone looking to sell a home.

-Randy Murphy

testimonial quoteMac helped me to sell my home the FIRST WEEKEND it was on the market! He is knowledgeable, efficient, and very effective at doing what it takes to sell your home. He had professional pictures taken to show the home online, gathered comparable listings to help choose the perfect selling price, and knew how to get the listing up quickly for an effortless sale. The inspections and closing process was a snap as he supervised and monitored all of that for me to allow me to pack up my home without worry.

Thanks Mac!

-Carolyn Hindel

testimonial quoteI would highly recommend “Mableton Mac” as your next realtor. I recently listed my house with Mac, and he was fantastic to work with throughout the process. I was an out-of-town homeowner, and we needed to do a lot of prep work on the home to get it ready for sale. Mac coordinated everything and has a great team of contractors that got the house ready for listing in no time at all. He has a great positive attitude and really knows his stuff. True expert in the Mableton area. The house listed, and we had a full price offer within a week. Go with Mac…

-Steven Root

testimonial quoteMac was a pleasure to work with from beginning to end.  We met with a few realtors about a year before we decided to sell and knew immediately that Mac was going to be the one to help us with our sale.  We were impressed with the love and understanding he has for the Mableton area.  He came well prepared for our first meeting with a strong understanding of our neighborhood, knowledge about comparable homes, and ideas for how to get the best price for our house.  In the year between our initial meeting and final agreement to list our house, Mac regularly sent us updates on sales of comparable homes and his opinion of the market.  He took the time to get to know us and helped manage the visits of potential buyers, inspectors, and appraisers with careful attention to the demands of our family with two small children.  He makes himself continually available for his clients helping to ensure that the process of selling your hours is a pleasant experience.  We would strongly recommend Mac to any potential buyers and sellers in the Mableton area.

-Andrew and Natalie K.

testimonial quoteOur home in Vinings Estates was on the market for a year before we found Mac. We had already moved out of the city and needed some aggressive help “on the ground”. We needed someone we could trust, who would give us good advice, even when it wasn’t what we wanted to hear, and someone who made us feel like he was really interested in getting us the best possible price in a tough market. Mac was all of that. He met with tradesmen to negotiate small repair jobs for us because we could not be there, he actually visited our empty house on a regular basis to make sure things were well dusted and tidy, and best of all, he communicated with us on a very regular basis. When we were worried about ever getting an acceptable price for our house, Mac was the voice of optimism and positive thought. It all worked out great in the end. And we have a new friend in the real estate business. You should get to know him.

-Art & Jami Bower

testimonial quoteMac Scheidegger was superbly helpful and extraordinarily patient while we searched for over 15 months for a home after moving to Georgia. He gave us sound advice and did not rush us into buying a home that would not have been a perfect fit for us. We looked at countless options, but Mac waited and walked with us through the process until we had that “ah-ha” feeling that we had finally found the right home to purchase. Mac has expert knowledge of the business of realty and seeks the very best for his clients and their families, without exception. Everyone who knows Mac says the same thing about him: he has integrity and is a truly great professional in the realty business. We recommend him every single time we hear of someone interested in buying or selling a home in the area.

-Elizabeth and Jeff Horner

testimonial quoteI am a Real Estate Investor and have used Mac Scheidegger upon several occasions in purchasing and selling transactions. He is extremely trustworthy and knows the market extremely well. I feel totally comfortable involving Mac in any business negotiations and have seen him to be fair and have his client’s best interest at heart. He truly knows the local area real estate dynamics. I strongly recommend his involvement on either end of the purchase/sale!

-Larry R. Kelly

testimonial quoteSeven years ago, we learned of a family in our neighborhood that was planning to sell their home after building a new one. We were interested in moving to a larger home with a basement, so we approached the family before they listed their home for sale. Although we technically didn’t need a realtor for the purchase, we contacted Mac to get assistance in negotiating the contract, as well as to represent us in selling our current home. Mac not only was able to get a buyer for our home in less than two weeks, he advised us on many aspects of our home purchase as well. To top it all off, the day we moved into our new home, Mac showed up to help us. He’s truly one of the “good guys” — honest, hard-working and committed to integrity.

-Larry and Ellen Adams

testimonial quoteSaw your ad on Facebook today and then clicked to your website. The site looks good and I really like the Step story. Good job

-Paul Webster

testimonial quoteMac is a seasoned professional who is extremely knowledgeable about the Cobb County area and the home buying process.  His positive attitude, dedication and responsiveness make him a pleasure to work with.  We have known and worked with Mac on several real estate transactions over the past 10 years.  Mac goes beyond what most real estate agents would do for a customer and we highly recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor who gives the “personal” touch when looking for a new home.

-Tim and Jennifer Mallon

testimonial quoteWorking with Mac was a great experience.  He showed me a wide variety of properties in my price range tailored to my needs.  Mac was very accommodating to my schedule and always communicated timely.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mac to anyone looking in the Smyrna/Mableton area.

-Matt Roux

testimonial quoteMac Scheidegger is a very intelligent and hard working agent who helped us negotiate the best price for our new home.  He was also able to recommend contractors and inspectors who were very capable and fair.  We trusted his judgment and his ability to anticipate requirements and needs.  We would highly recommend Mac as a professional and dedicated Real Estate Agent.

-Danny and Annette Cox

testimonial quoteI would definitely recommend Mac Scheidegger and Step Realty to assist you with selling or buying a home. Mac helped me a great deal and went above and beyond while selling my home in Mableton. I would trust him to represent me again in the future.

-John Wellborn Live Well Bikes and Concierge℠

testimonial quoteMac did a tremendous job in selling our house.  We appreciate his tirelessness and professionalism throughout the process. We had moved when we listed our house. We knew we were in good hands. Mac wore many hats on our behalf. He handled each job in a professional and friendly manner. He was knowledgeable, thorough and patiently answered all of our questions (believe me, we had many questions, since it was our first time selling a house) He served us well in the negotiating process. He always had the ability to strike the right balance. You know that sometimes the selling/buying process is tiring.  However, Mac made it as enjoyable as possible for us. Not that we’re doing it again anytime soon :-), but we will certainly wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate professional.

-D. Kosen – Marietta, GA

testimonial quoteI had the task of selling my daughter’s house after she moved quickly to take a job in Germany, and I called Mac who was a tremendous help.  He took care of everything including getting the house sold before a sign was placed in the yard. Needless to say, I was pleased.

-Will Parker

testimonial quoteOur family recently sold and bought a home in the Smyrna, GA area with the help of Mac Scheidegger, Owner/Broker Step Realty.  We had lived in our home for more than 14 years before the need for more square footage outweighed our love for our home.  Mac was very helpful to us as we came to a well-grounded understanding of the value of our home and of the homes that we were considering for purchase.  His deep knowledge of the local market proved essential in helping us identify the appropriate selling points for our home as well as helping us through decisions about whether we should make further investments to increase the selling price.  We were able to sell our home in a significantly shorter time period than we expected.  But, over and above those things Mac was actually able to create buying opportunities for us that didn’t exist without his efforts.  Mac went over and above when he reached out to and convinced sellers who had previously decided to take their home off the market.  Our family loves our new, and we thank Mac for making it available to us.

-Steve and Sherry Stoichev

testimonial quoteThanks to your yeoman’s efforts, the appraisal came in at $230,000, which is GREAT NEWS for us. (Even though you and I think it should be $240).  Thank you Sir and if you ever need a recommendation from a former customer, you’ll have a good one from us.   Have a blessed day and season as we celebrate the “reason for the season”.

-Sincerely, Joe Burkhardt

testimonial quoteWe are the house that is referenced that sold for over $300 K and agent “D” that is being referenced is MAC SCHEIDEGGER. If you are going to sell your home, you would be foolish not to hire Mac. He provided service and results that were top notch. No agent knows this area like Mac and I can guarantee you that no one will work harder for you……Mac works with a sense of professionalism, ethics, and is always readily available. I agree with what Ricardo posted: we also interviewed a few agents….Wendy Bunch walked into our home and basically told us that when people walk into our home and look out to the beautiful lake view “they will likely think West Nile Virus” when they look at the lake. LOL! Sounded like WB also wanted a quick low ball sales price on our home so we said thanks and no thanks. She also wanted the home listed no more than 300K. Be careful about who you interview and before you hire someone, definitely call Mac…..he is the real deal!

-David Antokal

testimonial quote11 years ago, new to the area, I met Mac while looking for a house. I had no agent at the time but had spoken to quite a few. Mac seemed so personable, did not pressure, and was easy going. So, yes, I engaged him to help me find a house. The Retreats was just being built and was one of my top choices but in the end, found a really nice home in Powder Springs. Long story short, 3 homes later, and now in the retreats, Mac helped with each buy and sell. Since we’ve known each other so long, he knew what I would like and somewhat insisted I see a home in the retreats and yes, it was exactly what I was looking for and would be comfortable with. But he still showed me options so that my decision would be well rounded. Well, I just passed 3 years here and the house, community, and neighbors couldn’t be better. Others are correct, Mac knows his business, this area, and will work for you!

-Fran Kjeldsen

testimonial quote“Mac was our selling realtor for our Mableton home.  It was our first home sale, and he guided us through the process, helping us price the house, stage it and advising us throughout negotiations.  Most importantly, as an owner in our neighborhood, we knew he had our best interests and the neighborhood’s in mind.  You can feel confident working with Mac that he’ll be attentive, responsive and work with you to achieve your goals in selling your home.”

-Cy and Carrie Philpott

testimonial quoteWhile house hunting in a couple of the more desired neighborhoods that we liked, we seemed to always see a Step Realty sign around. The phone number on that sign provided us with a first of many calls to Mableton Mac. Mac returned our initial call promptly, and was showing us houses that very afternoon. Our experience with Mac was one of honesty, dependability, and true knowledge of the areas. We could see that after just a few home viewings that he had a lot of respect from local contractors, peers and the new neighborhood in which we now reside, Thanks Mac for all you did to help us get into our first home together.

-Lynne and Eric Vanburen

testimonial quoteThank you so much for all your hard work during our house selling process. Your professionalism and ability to hang in there even when the other side was so abstinent was fabulous!   You took great care of our needs, especially considering we were located on another continent due to military stationing. We cannot thank you and your team enough for all their efforts from beginning to end.  In this economy, I can truthfully say no one could have acquired a better outcome for us.  If ever in need a house in the Atlanta area, you will be our first and only call.

-Bill and Janet Pray

testimonial quote“Step Realty really ‘stepped’ up to the plate for us!  We were moving out of state and needed someone who would not only sell our house but also look after it in our absence.  Mac consistently checked on the house and gave us periodic updates.  He has trusted people he has used for a long time that helped with repairs and lawn work.  It was such a relief that our house selling was left in such good, trusted hands!”

-Leon and Diane TeGrotenhuis

testimonial quoteI really enjoyed working with Mac Scheidegger.  At every step, I truly felt he had my best interest at heart.  Mac worked to get me the best price possible on the house I sold and the house I purchased.  He was very hands on and kept me informed throughout the process.  He was very tuned in on my needs and my situation.  His knowledge and experience reduced the amount of stress that I experienced.  I enjoyed working with Mac and would highly recommend him and Step Realty.

-Charlie Gehring

testimonial quoteAmy and I are both very happy with the high level of service and results that you provided us. I assure you that we have been singing your praises! We are more than happy to be a reference or to provide a quotation/testimonial for promotional purposes. Seriously, anything we can do to help with your new company. Thank you for all of your hard work in listing our house, negotiating the contract, and closing the sale (and even the after-the-fact-repair stuff). We could not have been with a better Realtor.

-Tom Bingham

testimonial quoteMac Scheidegger did a great job in selling my Mableton home. From the listing process to the closing, things went smoothly and quickly. In this environment getting the home properly appraised once sold can be as difficult as finding a qualified buyer. Mac met the appraiser on site, was well prepared, and was invaluable in insuring the process went smoothly. Thanks Mac, Good Job!!

-Gary Fields

testimonial quoteThere is only ONE person that I would recommend that you work with to find a house in this area, and that’s Mac Scheidegger (pronounced shy-dih-grrr). In local circles, he’s known as Mableton Mac, but he knows the Smyrna area just as well. He and his family are strong Christian people, honest as the day is long, and he won’t steer you wrong….if he says “walk away”, do it. If he says, “this is a really good deal”, believe him. I’m sure he’ll be a good listener as to price range, what you and your sister are interested in, and will work hard to find the right property for you!

-BlesSings, LynnDee Martin

testimonial quoteWe just wanted to tell you how thankful we’re to have known you the last several years and for all that you done for our family. You gave me faith that things would work out and encouraged me to leave it in God’s hands. I did just that! We still are shocked we were able to sell our house!

-Sam, Reid, and Adair Grace Rochford

testimonial quoteNo matter how I look at it-you saved my life from despair by your help and expertise in selling my house. I can’t thank you enough for your support. I was in the middle of an embarrassing challenge in my life-and I was STUCK! Your advice and direction(s) helped Robb and me-and so let me say thank you again. Cheers.

-Patricia Stanek

testimonial quoteAs many of you know, we moved across town (to Norcross) this past June. We had an excellent showing and selling experience, even in this tough market, and we owe that to our Realtor, Mac Scheidegger. We just wanted to let you know that if you are ever thinking about selling or renting your house, or just have realty questions, we feel 100% confident in recommending Mac. Not only did he give us amazing customer service, but he is also very knowledgeable in the technicalities and details of real estate-and that’s not easy when laws are changing constantly. We are generally not “advertising people”, but feel strongly enough about the job Mac did for us that we thought we’d give a shout out to others. Please feel free to ask us any questions or go straight to Mac. His phone # is 770-819-4005. Thanks!

-Tonya and Eric Walter

testimonial quoteMac was instrumental in helping us find our new home. He was easily available to us, and kept in great communication with us throughout the process, and all the way to closing. He developed a relationship with the seller and we were able to get to an agreement on price within a few days of our initial offer. Mac made purchasing a new home a great experience all the way around. Thanks, Mac!

-Jeff Duggins

testimonial quoteRealtor Mac Scheidegger’s friendliness and good-natured attitude were matched only by his determination to find the right house for our family of four. His patience and persistence in searching for our new home were admirable as he seamlessly escorted us on the house-hunting journey. From the first house viewing to the last signature on closing documents, Mac Scheidegger was a pleasure to work with and continues to be a friend and neighbor, Thanks for all you’ve done, Mac!

-Jennie Hale

testimonial quoteAs an appraiser, I know that the real estate agent can make a huge difference in the outcome of an appraisal. Every time I have appraised one of Mac’s listings, he always meets me at the house to represent his seller and provides important information not just about the subject property but about the surrounding market. He really does his homework.

-Mark Durden

testimonial quoteDear Mac,  I wanted you to know how much we appreciate all you did to help make selling our childhood home a very positive experience.   Beginning with your willingness to meet with three siblings at different times to get our listing underway, to keeping an active line of communication with all of us, and finally being with us through the negotiation and closing process (including being present at the closing), we couldn’t have asked for more! You were most attentive to our wishes and flexible when we needed you to be.  Your expertise, advice, and your connections after having been in the real estate business for so many years were invaluable.  And we were so pleased that our house sold in such a short time! If I am ever in need of a Realtor in this area again, I will certainly be calling on you.  Please feel free to use me as a reference any time.  I already tell everyone I know that if they need a Realtor they need to call Mac!    Thanks again!

-Sincerely,  Kathy Crist

testimonial quoteMac Scheidegger, or Mableton Mac as many affectionately call him, is a Realtor that is very knowledgeable about his area.  When he takes you on as a client he definitely has your best interest at heart.  During our house buying experience he was very accommodating to our schedule and time frames.  Mac is a go getter!  He listens to your wants, your needs, and your desires in a house and he delivers.  Mac is a kind and funny person.  He makes the sometimes dreaded chore of house shopping fun and enjoyable.

-Vince & Samantha Sims

testimonial quoteDear Mac, now that my home has been sold and closed, I want to let you know how great it was working with you.  You are very professional, thorough, honest and hard working.  I felt all through the transaction you were working hard for my good.  You were there for the inspection, the termite situation and the closing.  Thank you for an easy, stress free, important event in my life.

-Sincerely, Peggy Jorban

testimonial quoteI have bought and sold a few houses in my day, this last one took quite a while to sell and it was a stressful period of time.  Mac did a great job easing my stress and keeping my spirits up.  He is professional, friendly, caring and knowledgeable.  I would not hesitate to work with him again.

-Rick Sanford

testimonial quoteMac was wonderful to work with. His knowledge of the area compared to other Realtors we spoke with helped us to set the best price for our home that would maximize our value but also help us to sell relatively quickly. Mac was always very responsive to my wife and I and kept us up to date during the selling process all the way through closing. Mac was also able to give us feedback initially on the condition of the home and things we may want to look at changing and other things that we should hold off on saving us a lot of money during the sales process by not making unnecessary upgrades as we were putting the home on the market. I highly recommend Mac.

-Dave McGinley

testimonial quote“Mac’s genuine and caring personality flows from his steadfast belief in helping others. I am personally grateful to work with such a man filled with such integrity.”

-Katrina Lucisano Family First Mortgage, Inc  President-Owner

testimonial quoteMac sold my Mother-in-law’s home in Smyrna during the recession when nothing was selling.  Mac worked very hard to sell the house, even meeting the appraiser while trying to get the buyers’ loan approved and with the home inspector the buyers had hired. Above and beyond the call of duty. Thanks Mac.

-Bo Vaughan

testimonial quoteDear Mac, Thank you very much for helping us find the perfect home for our growing family. We appreciate your patience, honesty, and continuous positive attitude over these past few years. We are so grateful to have been introduced to you and it was definitely God’s influence that brought us together. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for everything you have done to help us with our home search and decision.

-Most Sincerely, Alex and Christy Wulz

-Ann and Dan Meleny

testimonial quote“We had a wonderful experience purchasing our new home in Mableton, GA, which was made possible because of the great Realtor, Mac Scheidegger. Mac is a true professional with 25 plus years of experience. He is patient, prompt and resourceful. He is always cheerful and treated us as a friend rather than a Realtor, guiding us through this process. I strongly recommend Mac to anyone who is planning on buying or selling the home.”

-Swamy and Shyamala Mruthinti

testimonial quote“When we teamed up with Mac, his knowledge of the area and home buying process was apparent right away. But, it was Mac’s sincere dedication to helping us find a house we loved that made the difference. He went above and beyond anything we expected, reached out to folks in the neighborhoods we were interested in, and helped us with every step through closing. The simple truth is that Mac is the reason that we found and purchased the perfect first house.”

-Bryan and Toni-Marie Partridge

testimonial quoteI have closed 2 houses with Mac, and he has shown himself to be a great resource for any questions I have had about the contract terms.  He has guided me through the process each time, and he has always been accessible.  Mac’s many years of experience as a realtor is a great asset, and he never fails to have a pleasant and upbeat attitude.

-Stephen Murphy Covenant Roofing and Construction, LLC GA licensed Residential Contractor

testimonial quote“Mac Scheidegger has been the ideal agent for us in our relocation from Pennsylvania to Georgia to be near our grandchildren. Mac took the time to understand fully our need for a neighborhood close to our daughter and grandchildren and for the type of house best suited to our preferences. He looked long and hard to satisfy us and kept us fully informed of availabilities despite our being 800 miles to the North. He worked closely with our daughter and son-in-law who live in the Atlanta area to insure that every opportunity was explored on our behalf. Once the ideal house for us was identified, Mac worked closely with the seller’s agent to insure that pricing and other aspects of the sale were precise, accurate and to each party’s mutual satisfaction. In brief, Mac is a high quality professional with a tireless work ethic who knows the Mableton, Smyrna, Vinings areas thoroughly. He is an extraordinarily honest and caring businessman who always kept our needs his top priority as buyers new to this area. He gave us his full attention whenever we needed him throughout our buying process. We cannot imagine having a better home buying experience than the one we had with Mac as our agent.”

-Kevin and Bridget Corcoran

testimonial quoteDear Mr. Scheidegger, It was an absolute pleasure working with you.  You went out of your way to make the process of selling our home a very trouble free process. We had previously had our home listed with another Realtor for 5 months and had nothing but issues and no offers.  You sold our home in two weeks.  Unbelievable!  We were so thankful!  Thank you again for outstanding service!

-The Poole’s 

testimonial quoteWe really enjoyed working with you. Your knowledge of the area was indispensable, and your patience is unmatched. Thank you for all of your help.

-Maxine Coleman

testimonial quoteMac Scheidegger is a wonderful Realtor to work with.  He was attentive to the types of homes and features I was interested in and even showed me homes outside of his normal area that I wanted to look at.  He had a lot of patience when I wanted to go back to a particular home a second and a third time and was great in getting all the paperwork done so that we could have a reasonably ‘effortless’ closing process.  Since then he has checked in on me occasionally to see how everything was going with the house and sent me some really useful “checklists” for the house for different times of the year.  Mac knows a lot about houses, the housing market, and is definitely a go-getter.  I will use him again if the time ever comes that I need to sell and buy again!

-Carolyn Hindel

testimonial quoteWe have known Mac for over 12 years. He was our Realtor when we bought our first house in Mableton, GA. Since then we have reached out to him regarding any advice we needed in regards to Realtor questions and even regarding house maintenance. Just recently when we moved to another locality we reached out to him again to sell that house. He is very reliable and very hard working. He takes special care in taking care of his customer’s needs. We have known him for so long he has become a good friend of ours. We highly recommend Mac to anyone who needs to sell or buy a house.

-Best Regards, Sam & Sue Ramaswamy

testimonial quoteI started working with Mac years ago when I began planning a major renovation of my home.  Knowing that I would be selling the house in the not too distant future, I wanted to ensure that the changes I made would appeal to the majority of buyers.  Mac was very responsive to my requests for his feedback on planned layout changes, finishes and colors.  Years later, when it was time to sell, Mac again willingly spent time weighing in on improvements that would help ensure that I received top dollar for my house.  Now, with the sale of the house behind me, I’m confident that Mac was instrumental in helping me achieve that goal.  He provided all of the services I expected from an agent, and many that I didn’t know to expect, but realize now helped guarantee that the stressful listing and selling process went smoothly.  All along the way, Mac made me feel like I was the only client he had, although I knew that was far from the truth!  He’s professional, ethical, responsive, honest and hard-working.  I highly recommend him without hesitation!

-Glynis Langford

testimonial quoteI thank God for Mac.  He is truly an amazing Realtor who knows his stuff.  Mac is very professional and really listens to what you are saying.  Mac is very passionate about his work. Many times I was stressed about moving to a new job out of the state and had doubts that my house would sell in less than 6 months, but Mac has always put me at ease with his positive attitude.   Mac is not just a Realtor, but a friend that I can call if I need some help.  It has been such a blessing having him as my Realtor.

-Cindy Weaver

testimonial quoteMy husband and I purchased our first home with Mac Scheidegger as our Realtor and we couldn’t be happier! He made our home buying experience easy to say the least, even though it can be a stressful process. From day one we could tell Mac was the best because of his knowledge, experience and professionalism. Realtors my husband and I sought out before meeting Mac seemed to be only after a quick sale and were not as knowledgeable, professional or informative. Mac makes sure the buyer understands the ins and outs and will be honest and straightforward about school systems, location, and neighborhoods etc. We could appreciate this because he really cared about our wants and concerns and looks at the “big picture.” I am type A personality and patience is a weakness. Mac was not only patient, but he was always two steps ahead of the game and could answer our questions with confidence and ease. Mac, thank you for always being professional and for making our home buying experience a pleasant one!

-Joi Schweitzer

testimonial quoteWhen we were deciding to sell our current home and buy a new home in Smyrna, we didn’t consider any Realtor other than Mac.  I knew him from our church and the community, but his reputation as a Realtor is what made us decide to go with him.  Mac was everything you expect with a Realtor plus more.  His level of attentiveness and overall customer service were outstanding.  He was always willing to go above and beyond and take whatever time was needed to look at homes, come up with the best plan / response and answer all of our questions.  Since then, he has continued to provide excellent service by staying in touch and providing us with updated real estate market data in our area.   I recommend Mac fully without any hesitation.  When it comes time to move again, Mac will be my first call!   Thanks.

-Melissa D Hanna

testimonial quoteWe’ve had the pleasure of working with Mac Scheidegger twice over the past few years. Through the purchasing of our first home and also selling it, Mac went the extra mile, did unprecedented amounts of research and worked to make sure we were well-cared for every step of the way. Working with Mac as your Realtor one will find him to be organized, extremely knowledgeable and reliable.  If he doesn’t know the answer, he will find it. His instincts are spot-on as is his commitment to do right by his clients. Mac helped our family navigate a purchase, renovation and many rounds of negotiations. The process convinced us we could not have done it without his careful guidance. When our family was faced with an unexpected relocation to North Carolina, just ten months after purchasing our home, Mac stepped up to the plate again. He reassured us we could move forward, and we felt much confidence to do so knowing he would take care of the sale. We trusted him knowing that he had initially gotten us the best deal possible, and he successfully came through. Mac’s demeanor and positive outlook on life is unwavering. There are a lot of Realtors out there, but few with the experience and determination he possesses. We would recommend anyone looking for a Realtor to link arms with Mac. You won’t be disappointed.

-Jess and Chris Toews

testimonial quoteIt is my pleasure to recommend Mac Scheidegger  as a real estate agent to any individual or family seeking to buy or sell a home.  Each situation is unique.

-Jamie Serratelli

testimonial quoteMac helped me sell my home in Smyrna, GA in April of 2015.  I chose Mac because of his experience in the Smyrna/Mableton area.  Mac did an excellent job researching and evaluating comparable property prices which was an issue in my situation.  Mac is an excellent negotiator and closely monitored each step during the contract, inspection, appraisal and closing processes.  Mac is a trust-worthy person, and I would definitely work with him again to sell or buy a home.

-Carol O’Neal

testimonial quoteIn August of 2014 Jason and I were driving around looking for a house to buy. We came across one we liked and decided to give the listing agent a call. That listing agent happened to be Mac. Within ten minutes he was there to show us the house. We were so grateful that he was able to meet us so quickly and while we didn’t end up purchasing that house we knew from that point on that Mac was going to be the one to help us find our perfect home. We clicked very well with him and felt really good about trusting him to help us find the best deal as first time homebuyers. From day one he was sending us listings that matched our criteria and was always available by phone or text to answer any questions we had (there were lots of them). With Mac’s help it didn’t take long before we found our dream home. He guided us through the offer process, inspections, and everything we needed to know about closing costs and the due diligence period. We couldn’t have asked for a better person to help us buy our first home. The whole process took about 2 months and we closed on October 7th 2014. Having lived here now a year I can say that we still feel like we made the best decision in purchasing this home and were so lucky to have Mac to help us get it for a steal! Houses smaller than our in the neighborhood are already selling for thousands more than we paid! If you are looking for someone who is knowledgeable about the market, trustworthy, and hardworking we highly recommend Mac to help you purchase your next home!

testimonial quoteMy husband and I worked with Mac a few years ago when we were buying our first home.  We knew very little of what to expect from the whole process and Mac was always available by providing guidance and advice as first time home buyers.  My husband traveled for business during much of the building process and Mac went the extra mile by joining me on various walk-throughs and interactions with the builder.  I remember telling myself many times, “I never thought of that, I’m glad Mac is here!”  He is friendly and prompt, and made our home buying process much easier. Now, almost 10 years later, Mac keeps us up to date on trends and buying patterns in our area.  We would recommend Mac to anyone looking in the South Cobb area.

testimonial quoteWhen we needed to sell the first home we moved to in Georgia, we wanted to make sure we had the right Realtor.  Our prior experiences having purchased and sold homes with other Realtors didn’t go as smoothly as we had hoped. Those Realtors were more interested in directing us to homes that they wanted to sell us, going after the first offer, making a quick sale, and when the deals went south, they didn’t go the extra mile to resolve them quickly.  We just didn’t want to go there again.  This time, we did our research, found the top Realtors in the area and began interviewing them – until we found Mac Scheidegger.   From the moment we met Mac, we knew he was the one that we wanted to work with.  He listened patiently to our needs, quickly mobilized to find homes in our desired areas, and was readily available by phone and in-person to meet/take us on visits.  Moreover, he addressed our numerous questions and concerns, especially during the negotiation and contractual process.  Mac is congenial, forthcoming, and objective, and knows the local real estate market very well.  We have greatly appreciated his advice and guidance.  So far, we have been extremely pleased with the three (3) homes we’ve purchased and sold with him.  It’s been over ten (10) years since we first worked with Mac, and it will definitely not be our last. He’s become our friend and “Realtor for Life.”  If you want someone who will wholeheartedly take the time to understand and meet your real estate needs, look no further because Mac is your Realtor.
