From Heidi & Chris, our buyers, 2019:
Thank you for joining us at our open house - not only were you our fantastic Realtor, but you've become a great friend! Thank you again for making magic happen to get us into our dream home! We loved Oak & Iron + all the other local spots you've pointed us toward. We love this area! ;-) Heidi, Chris & Tuck.
From Andria & Joe, our buyers, 2019:
Dear Ray, Thank you so much for being by our side during this journey. We are excited to unlock the door leading to our future. We are so grateful for all of your guidance, support and honesty during one of the most nerve wracking experiences. We will always think of you when we look at our home!!! OMG we bought a house! Thank you!! Best, Andria & Joe.
From Joyce & Myles, our sellers, 2019:
Dear Ray, Words won't come to completely express my gratitude for all of your support and guidance during these "rocky" last 5 months. Thank you for being there for ne every step. The print of the house just capped it off! You have been a joy to know and so thoughtful!! May you and Judy stay well. Love Joyce & Myles. (editor note: this seller had the misfortune of being caught by the gas crisis - no heat while trying to sell isn't helpful!).
From a home inspector who worked for the buyer on our listing (aka the "other side"), 2019:
Ray, Truly a treat working with you. Your comprehension of real estate challenges and your dedication to provide outstanding customer service is refreshing!

From Kim & Ben, February 2017 -
My wife and I would highly recommend Ray! From house search to closing he was there every step of the way! 8am or 8pm he was there to help us with any and all questions. He treated us like we were his only client. He was super professional, caring, and understanding of our needs! Thanks so much Ray, you made our first home buying experience great!
From Mansha & Nirmal, January 2017 -
I would highly recommend Ray Durling if you are looking for a property to purchase. Ray is one of the most professional, passionate and talented realtor you can ever find with great sense of humor. He knows the market and works tirelessly for his clients. If you are in the market for a home he is your go to person. I would work with him in a heartbeat. Ray comes with my highest recommendation. Thanks so much for everything Ray. It was real pleasure working with you.
From a fellow Realtor, August 2016 -
We met at your condo listing on Sanborn Street in Reading. My clients offer wasn't accepted, but I thought you did an amazing job for your sellers to help them maximize their sale price.
From Corina, August 2016 -
Ray assisted me in purchasing my first property, and I'm so glad he did. He made what can be a complicated process, very simple and stress-free. He quickly found answers to all my questions about properties. He was available around my crazy schedule and even drove to me a couple times. After our offer was accepted, he laid out a detailed schedule, and we were in constant contact all the way up until closing. I never had to worry about a thing with Ray on my team.
From Shelly & David, August 2016 -
Ray is the best Realtor I have ever worked with, I have bought and sold homes and his persistence and dedication is astounding. Home buying is a stressful process but Ray kept me calm with positive affirmations and a "we can do this" attitude. Having him by my side throughout every step put me at ease. He will fight to make your dreams a reality! Thank you Ray Durling for just being awesome. You rock "cookie man" ! Thank you.
From Victoria, July 2016 -
Ray is a wonderful selling agent! He is very pleasant to work with, responsive, honest, and dedicated. My husband and I are especially grateful for the many people Ray referred us to throughout the process. As a result, we sold our house quickly and are working with another great realtor out of state. Ray exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend him!
From Sharon, June 2016 -
I couldn't have had a better agent to sell my Reading condo than Ray Durling. He is an extremely experienced professional. He paid attention to every detail, was very accessible and responded quickly to all of my questions. He made the negotiation process painless, with a very successful outcome. I highly recommend this honest, ethical and caring man.
From Will, February 2016 -
The real estate business has many moving parts so you need to deal with someone who you know is knowledgeable and trustworthy. Ray is clearly both and demonstrated that throughout the process of selling our home in a timely and professional manner. He was able to walk us through any difficult conversations and communicated clearly with us when things needed to be negotiated or clarified.
I would recommend Ray Durling to anyone thinking about buying or selling a home.
From Tasha, February 2016 -
To be honest right from the start Ray made us feel so comfortable. It was as if he was already invested in us and our process before we decided to go with him, which made our decision to choose him that much easier.
Ray was always available whether it was through email, text or a phone conversation. He also went above and beyond to be there for something if we couldn't be. An example is we were able to get the roof repaired in the new house before we closed and Ray went by to make sure the work was being done because we couldn't.
Overall Ray was awesome and made our home buying experience great!
From Christina, January 2016 -
He is the best.
From Yash, January 2016 -
First time home buying can be stressful and having Ray was extremely helpful. He was extremely patient and would never push us into making a decision.
Ray would always point out the good and bad in a house to help us make an informed decision. He was always available to answer questions and would always schedule a viewing on a house as soon as it was possible, so we would not miss out on an opportunity.
I look forward to working with him again for our next home!
From Erin, December 2015 -
Ray was our buyer agent. He is attentive, professional, and has a great sense of humor. He put in all the time necessary to get the job done. Our purchase had many frustrating obstacles, and it would have fallen through if it wasn't for Ray's determination. We recommend him highly.
From Rich & Rebecca, December 2015 -
Thank you Ray for being part of our "first home" experience. We truly appreciate all your hard work. Stay in touch! Warmly, Rich & Becky
