      Featured Testimonial                by Bill & Stephanie


Lisa was professional and knowledgeable right out of the gate, which made it obvious why our friend recommended her.
She went above and beyond in keeping us informed and wasn’t shy with her opinions, which helped us greatly in both the sale and our subsequent purchase.
Also, all of the lawyers and mortgage brokers she recommended were the best we’ve dealt with.
We can’t recommend Lisa enough. She’s the best!
