Featured Testimonial

                           by Sue


From the start Lisa made the stressful process of selling our home, due to divorce, much easier. Lisa and her associates were always available to answer questions and address any concerns I had. Her knowledge and experience, as well as her friendly and easy-going manner, put me at ease. Lisa and her associates even took time to try and help me find an apartment! I would definitely recommend Wenzel Select Properties, Ltd. to friends, family, and coworkers. And, of course, if and when I decide to buy a home. Lisa will be the first one I call!
