Stasia was very professional and friendly during our home buying experience. She helped us find houses to look at that met our requirements and was able to fill us in on information that we were not familiar with as first time home buyers.

Darian was there every step of the way to help us along! Even after we found the right home, Darian helped us through the actual purchase, mortgage application, home inspection, and closing. He always had extremely useful advice, encouragement, and endless knowledge about buying and owning a home.

Melissa is an outstanding real estate agent and a joy to work with. She took the time to understand our needs in a new home, worked tirelessly running down leads, and has stayed upbeat and positive during a difficult search. We not only consider her as our real estate agent, but a friend. Our experience has been so positive that we absolutely plan on working with Melissa in the future.

It was truly a pleasure to work with Amy. Not only is she knowledgeable and responsive, but she is patient and takes the time to explain the process of selling a home and makes you feel comfortable with what can be a very complicated process. Amy truly made the process easy for us and sold our property in a week.
