The sale of a home can be an enormous undertaking. I was in mine for 24 years so you can just imagine all that I had to deal with. The easy part was putting my trust in Lisa Wenzel and her team. From our initial meeting to the amazing virtual tour, I knew in my heart I was going to transition through the sale smoothly.
Her experience and expertise made me feel comfortable with the placement of my home into her list of properties after interviewing other Realtors. I was impressed with the interaction of the whole process. Lisa handled everything in an efficient and timely manner. I am excited to say I was presented with a fabulous offer from a suitable buyer and my sale was quick, it felt effortless, and I got everything that I wanted out of the transaction. I have and will always recommend Lisa Wenzel and her fabulous team.
