Featured Testimonial

                            by Brian


Lisa helped me find and close on my first home in October of 2017. When I first began house hunting I had my heart set on a single family home, but Lisa recommended we look at townhomes as well. I was hesitant at first, but Lisa explained some of the pros and conveniences of townhomes especially for a first time home buyer. After looking at A LOT of townhomes, we found the perfect one in Aurora. Five years later I am very happy I took Lisa’s advice and I couldn’t be happier. Five years! Time flies when you love where you live.

Thanks, Lisa!
