Your suggestions in getting our home ready to put on the market were exactly what we needed to do! Thanks to you, our home got lots of traffic and was sold within the first two weeks! From there you found us the perfect home in a wonderful neighborhood. Our two boys, still talk about when "Ms. Lisa" can come over and visit? Thanks for all your help and for being a great friend!Shannon and Aaron D
We cannot thank Lisa enough for her swift and immense help with finding our home. We had a very short time span to find a place before my husband started his new job. We were relocating to the area from Florida and had no clue where to start. Lisa was friendly, honest, and fast moving. She even did walk thrus with me via FaceTime while I was still in Florida. She showed us a variety of locations that fell within our budget and needs. We ended up in a beautiful home, in a wonderful area, close to my husbands new job and within walking distance to our sons elementary school. I highly recommend utilizing Lisa for her resourcefulness and expertise in the business. She's terrific!Elizabeth S.
