From day one, Diana Miles, a REALTORÂ® with Coldwell Banker Towne Realty in Montgomery, Ala., has been a huge proponent of American Home Shield (AHSÂ®). With more than a decade of experience under her belt, Miles serves the Tri-County Areaâ€”Montgomery, Autauga and Elmore Countiesâ€”working closely with buyers and sellers to help them achieve the American Dream.
And with AHS by her side, Miles not only has an edge on the competition, sheâ€™s also able to provide her clients with value-added benefits through the companyâ€™s home warranties and the AHS Appliance Discount Program.
â€śI tell my clients to put their problems in AHSâ€™ hands so that theyâ€™re out of theirs,â€ť says Miles, who understands the importance of a home warranty when going through a real estate transaction.
â€śI always try to sell a home warranty because it protects the seller and the buyer,â€ť says Miles. â€śItâ€™s something I believe in so strongly that for some clients, I pay for it as a closing gift, or I propose paying half if the client pays half.â€ť
In fact, if one of Milesâ€™ sellers chooses to purchase an AHS plan, she often covers the cost of upgrading her client to the highest level of protection. Or, in cases where itâ€™s applicable, a septic system upgrade, or even a swimming pool add-on.
â€śI never had a home warranty or knew anything about them until I became a REALTORÂ®,â€ť admits Miles. â€śBut as soon as I became a real estate professional, I sold my home with a home warranty and bought a house with one,â€ť she says.
As if the peace of mind that comes with an AHS home warranty werenâ€™t enough, Miles has also found great success with the American Home Shield Appliance Discount Program, among both herself and her clients.
â€śWhen my microwave stopped working, I was able to go online and do research to find a microwave that was equal to the quality of mine,â€ť says Miles. â€śI then called in to the AHS Appliance Discount Program to find out their discounted pricing,â€ť Miles adds.
â€śIt made sense for me to go completely through AHS and their Appliance Discount Program as the prices were very competitive.â€ť
Knowing firsthand just how well the AHS Appliance Discount Program works, Miles now makes it a point to bring the AHS program for customers to the attention of her buyers.
â€śOne of my clients recently upgraded their stove and they were really happy about it,â€ť Miles concludes. â€śI havenâ€™t had any complaints from any of my buyer clients. All the work AHS has done for me and my clients has been handled quickly and satisfactorily.â€ť
