Testimonial: You made a tough deal work! “You were enormously helpful in getting the right home for us in January. We had very specific requirements which made the search quite time consuming, but you worked with us all the way, putting a lot of effort and patience into making us feel taken care of. You guided us thru the whole process and even when the sellers did not keep up their part of the deal, you dealt with it patiently without giving in. You got us everything we asked for. For us the real estate transaction was stressful, but you made it as pleasing as possible. We highly, highly recommend you to anyone, and have already told my sister to work with you when she sells her house this summer! ~ Very gratefully yours, Michelle and Josh Sayers
