Testimonial from Mark

My fiancé and I were casually looking for a new condo when we stumbled upon the perfect home. We called Maureen right away since we had such a great experience with her buying our first home. She rushed over later that day and by end of the night we had an accepted offer. We couldn’t be more thrilled! It’s the first time we’ve had to sell and buy at the same time, and Maureen has walked us through every step of the way. Her infectious charisma and genuine nature can calm even the most anxious of home buyers. We trust her wholehearted and would never consider using any other agent. We can’t recommend Maureen enough – seriously, she’s the best!

7 Signs That You’ve Picked the Right Real Estate Agent

Buying or selling a home can be a complicated and stressful experience. There can be a lot of moving parts involved that may come as a surprise to people who have never been through the process before. This is why having a great real estate agent is critical.

There’s nothing worse than dealing with a person who you don’t like being around, especially if the going gets rough. If you don’t cringe at the sound of your agent’s voice then you might have found the right one. Continue reading
