She and her team provided detailed explanations of each step throughout the process, maintained continuous contact with us, and treated us like we were the only clients on her list. She is clearly at the top of her field, and I believe that anyone that uses her and her team to buy or sell their home will be as pleased as we were with the service level that she provides. In a world that has shown a decline in customer service, she delivered what can only be described of outstanding customer service. When we need the services of a realtor again, and we will, I assure you that there will only be one call made."~user4809531 posted on Zillow.com
