Tracy was great and did a great job keeping the goals of our family in mind as we looked for a new house. He kept us informed & led us through the process very smoothly! On the day I called him, I also called two other realtors- neither of which called me back. Tracy was prompt to return the call every time.

Chris and Michelle

Tracy was extremely helpful and supportive throughout the entire process. He always had my best interest in mind, and gave me his honest opinion, I had complete trust in Tracy.


Tracy was absolutely amazing! He was honest with me the whole way. He definitely went above and beyond.


Tracy was GREAT! He was patient with us and always showed us respect. Honest with is from day one about the process and we greatly appreciate him for that.

Terry & Robin

Tracy was a great realtor and made me feel very comfortable.


Tracy went above & beyond to make our first home buying experience great!


Mr. Slater was professional from start to finish! He is very knowledgeable about the many aspects of buying a home, we couldn't have done it without him. As a matter of fact, he presented it to my husband and I that it was even possible that we could purchase a home at the time, he had done his  "homework" and was able to present avenues that we didn't know existed for us!

I am aware of the fact that Mr. Slater takes it on his own to attend conferences, meetings, forums, anything that will enhance his job performance in addition to the required fields that he has, true dedication to his job.

He is someone that takes great pride in his accomplishments, as he should, he's certainly worthy of praise. He is a great role model for our African-American black males; young and old. Mr. Slater is honest, trustworthy and always looking for "extras" for his clients and we reap the benefits of his efforts! I would recommend Mr. Slater to anyone that has a sincere desire to purchase a home and willing to work with him to get them the house of their dreams! As a matter of fact......I HAVE recommended him lots of times! He's awesome!


We enjoyed the entire buying process with Mr. Slater. He did everything we asked of him and beyond. We can't thank him enough for the property we were able to purchase.


This was my first home purchase. Tracy was excellent in guiding me through the process. I was pretty indecisive as to what I wanted in purchasing a home. He was very patient with me. I appreciated that!


Tracy offered his services at a time when we most needed it!! He made a dream come true, especially when we weren't looking to buy a b:-)home. Through his commitment to make it happen; his perseverance; his abundance of knowledge ; and his professionalism. God used Tracy to make the impossible possible!!! He is awesome! Tracy works very hard and he's dependable. I would recommended Tracy to anyone who wants an honest and dependable Realtor.


Tracy is an excellent realtor. He cares a lot about his clients and is always willing to service you in any way that he can. Even though I worked all day, he would send my emails with pictures of homes and then asked me to let him know what I wanted to see. We looked for homes for several  weeks. He would take me to see 3-4 homes an evening and on weekend! I looked at a total of 50 homes and he never tired of showing them to me. He knew that the home I finally selected was the one for me but I was apprehensive and thought that it was too much house. We looked at the house twice, with just the two of us and the third time we took my parents. They knew it was the house for me too. I finally decided to take a chance on the house. We looked at the asking price and I gave him the price I was willing to pay and what I expected from the seller. He did the negotiations for me and I got what I wanted. I have never been happier in my house! Both Tracy and my parents were right, it was the best house for me.


Tracy did an exceptional job with helping me find my first home. He really put things into perspective and helped me relax throughout the entire process.


We are very satisfied with the service we received from Tracy! He is a kind, caring and very fun guy to be around always. Thanks a lot Tracy! We are loving our new home!


I am a first-time buyer and Tracy was very patient and explained the process thoroughly and efficiently. I was very surprised (but yet thankful) to receive a follow up call and post card after closing. Tracy was very flexible throughout the journey. I am a very satisfied customer because of Tracy’s professionalism.


Tracy is a great realtor! He went above and beyond to find the perfect place for me to call home!


Tracy Slater is an excellent realtor. I learned so much through him and this is the 4th home I’ve owned. He made himself available, changed his schedule to meet mine as I’m very busy. I have recommended him and will continue to do so. I was most impressed that he quickly learned my taste and showed me the homes that fit my taste. He is awesome.


Tracy's passion and energy are truly refreshing. His knowledge and experience really helped us through every part of the process. You owe it to yourself to take advantage of Tracy's willingness to help.


Mr. Slater was very professional in every aspect of the purchase of my new home! He goes above and beyond to assist this new home owner. He knows his business and does it well. I have already recommended him to friends! He is certainly an asset to Brinkoetter & Associates.


Tracy was very hands-on during the entire home-buying process. He really knows his job regarding to being a realtor. He was very informative to Stacey and I about the bank process step by step. He also provided me with a binder with the steps of the process for new homeowners to purchase. He always would call to check to see if I had any questions or concerns. Tracy is a great and funny realtor and he is someone you can trust. Stacey and I love our new home!


Tracy found me a home with everything I asked him for. He is good at his job and very confident. When a person is buying a home, his confidence is very helpful.


Very pleased and satisfied with the knowledge and experience Mr Slater showed in helping my wife and I find a home. My wife and I had been looking to purchase a home on our own for 6 months with no luck, decided to contact a realtor and within two weeks purchased our dream home with the help of Mr  Slater.


Thanks for helping me a home of exactly what I wanted!


Tracy was very helpful and kind. Any question I had, he would get me an answer back asap. Thank you, Tracy, and Brinkoetter for everything!


Tracy helped me realize the style of home I wanted as well as my ideal neighborhood and I applaud his tireless efforts to help me find the perfect home. He was committed to helping me get what I wanted and he had the ability to see my vision. Additionally, Tracy is very personable and made the  home search process very enjoyable.


Tracy was excellent with us. He had a lot of patience that we never have gotten before. He was excellent with us. We put him through it, but he always smiled and explained everything.


We really enjoyed and appreciated working with Tracy. After talking with him and filling out his questionnaire, Tracy really understood the kind of home we were looking for. He made sure we saw them first. He really made our move to Decatur an easy transition.
