What Our Clients Have to Say…
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
My Husband and I first met Evelyn Johnston with Prudential One Realty when we wanted to look at a home for sale. We were looking for a place to move because we had some medical problems and got behind on our mortgage. We knew we would not be able to get caught up and would eventually have to move out. All I can say is we just connected with Evelyn. From the moment we met her, it was like being with a member of the family that we hadn’t seen in awhile. Although she was professional in her manner, what showed up to us the most was that she cared about meeting our needs. Not just selling us a house. Since we have gotten to know her better, we know we were exactly right. She cares, and that makes all the difference.
Our home was listed with another brokerage, for a whole year, and we did not get one offer. When our listing expired, we had Evelyn come list our home and WOW what a difference. It was like grand central station. We had so many people in and out of our home it made our heads spin. Evelyn advertised and marketed our home aggressively. And the reports she sent us on the activity was consistent. We knew how many people were searching for a home like ours through prudential’s exclusive relationship with Yahoo!, and she used a 24 hour recorded message number that tracked every call that came in, and she called them and reported to us in the form of a monthly written report.
We received an offer in May, she brought it to us, explained exactly what it meant to us and our mortgage company and then she kept in constant contact with the bank. We have no idea whether or not the bank will accept it, but we know that however this works out, Evelyn has done a really fantastic job.
When my Father-in-Law passed away Evelyn was right here, fixing us dinner. She truly is a member of our family!
If you are in a similar situation, losing your home, call Evelyn, she is the BEST

I wanted to take the time to let you know how grateful I am that our paths crossed.
I was in a very untenable situation looking at a potential foreclosure and thinking that was the only option I had. After getting your flyer, knowing I had to get out of my house soon, I contacted you to see if you could help me find a place to live.
After explaining my “unique” situation to you, even though it was a Sunday, you immediately went into action, contacting your connections to see how you could help me out. You got me the answers I needed immediately and offered me solutions to my problem that I had totally discounted previously due to not having the proper information.
You continued to work with me, listing my house and doing whatever it took to show it and get it sold. I immediately got responses from prospective buyers and within a very short time, had several offers on my home.
You continued to not only work on selling my home, but spending consecutive weekends showing me prospective houses, cutting into your private time with your family due to my crazy work schedule.
You always had a smile and a good attitude!
My house was sold within a short period of time, thanks to you, and it was now time for me to find a new place.
You worked tirelessly with me showing me house after house until I found the place I’m living in now.
You connected me with Roger Maxwell, who worked his magic to help me get the financing secured in spite of a weird set of circumstances.
Not only did I get a great realtor, but I also got a new friend in the process.
You went above and beyond by coming over and helping me out when various people needed access to my house, and I couldn’t leave work to make it happen. You babysat my dog and really showed exceptional customer service, which is a very rare commodity these days.
You are a very special person Evelyn and I continue to sing your praises to whoever will listen.
Anyone who I know that is thinking about selling their house, or buying one, will hear about you and what a wonderful job that you did for me.
You gave me a “happy ending” that I probably would not have if our paths did not cross.
You helped me to change my life, and for that, I will always be grateful to you.
As soon as we can coordinate schedules, I want you and Larry and Roger to come over for a cookout so we can all celebrate my good fortune for having a bunch of great people in my corner, working for my happily ever after!
I just want to thank you Evelyn for all of your hard work these past months. You did more for me in the past 5 months then my previous realtor did in 10. You worked diligently until we finally sold the house and I am so very grateful to you. You were an absolute Godsend to me and I thank him everyday for you being there through all of this mess. I will recommend you to everyone I know who is in the market of buying/selling a house.
You can keep my name in there. I am fine with that. 🙂
Lewis lost his job when the Recreational Vehicle Market had the worst downturn in history in 2009. Our unemployment in Elkhart County was the highest in the whole country at just below 19%. When Lewis could no longer make his mortgage payment I educated him on the value of listing his home and selling it as a short sale, so we listed his home.
If we would not have sold the home, Lewis would have either had to file bankruptcy or go into foreclosure. Instead we got no less than 6 offers on the property and the long negotiation process caused several offers to be withdrawn. In the middle of negotiations the mortgage lender sold the loan and we had to start over. From the first offer to closing was approximately two years.
Lewis said I kept him out of bankruptcy and foreclosure because I would not give up on the process nor would I let him give up. We closed on this property just a few weeks ago and Lewis is starting over with neither a bankruptcy nor a foreclosure on his record!
Who do you know that is struggling to make their house payment? Could be a co-worker or the Son or Daughter of someone you know?
My Husband and I had just gotten married and we received a “Congratulations” card from Evelyn Johnston with Prudential One Realty. In the card she said there were programs available with little or no down payment needed. This sounded great to us, because like I said, we were newlyweds! So we called her. She asked us a few questions and sent us off to talk with a Mortgage Broker and get qualified. We had a few things that needed clearing up on our credit report, so we went through that process and then called Evelyn again when we were qualified to purchase a house. Now we knew exactly what we could afford. We talked about what we were looking for and then started looking at homes.
We put several offers in on homes that we liked and almost closed on one, but the home did not appraise out and the Seller was unable to take less, so we moved on. Shortly after this disappointment we walked into a house and fell in love. There was no other way to explain it. Both Jaton and I fell in love with it. We put in an offer and closed on it in the middle of summer. We moved in, the kids met new friends in the neighborhood and they started in a new school.
Before we got the card from Evelyn we knew we wanted to buy a home eventually, we just didn’t think it would be this soon. We knew nothing about the process and Evelyn helped us every step of the way. Thank you, Evelyn Johnston for making our dream of home ownership a reality. We will recommend you to our family and all our friends!
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
My Husband and I got married in September and got prequalified for $50,000. I called an office number posted on a house for sale and talked to an agent named Evelyn Johnston with Prudential One Realty. She readily agreed to show us the home even though it was for a low dollar amount. The home was not one we were interested in and Evelyn talked to us about Credit Builders Inc. CBI is a company that repairs your credit. We made an appointment, signed up and just a few months later we were able to start looking at homes again.
We looked at several, put offers in on a few that we did not get and then one day we walked up to a home that was still being built and fell in love. We made an offer, it was accepted and then we began the dreaded wait until it is finished! Evelyn called us (when we weren’t calling her…) and would say she has a few minutes, would we like to go see what has been done. She was pulling for us during the whole process and took care of all the details. She even offered to host an open house for us so we could meet our new neighbors!
Kevin and I would recommend Evelyn to everyone!
